Crete Calling - Chania Holiday Rentals

On the northern coast of Crete is the idyllic holiday resort of Chania, pronounced “Hania”. Known for its Venetian harbour, it is also recognized for wine tasting and holidays where historical interests are indulged. From Chania holiday homes there are wonderful opportunities for sightseeing and enjoying the character and atmosphere of this interesting resort. This includes architecture of the Venetian, Byzantine, Turkish and Minoan eras as well as modern.

A sightseeing experience in Chania

A visit to the Venetian harbour is something to look forward to. Situated in the older part of the town it, has a character of its own. Within this region and within easy reach of the Chania holiday villas are a variety of old churches and museums. To break your sightseeing tour, there are various quaint cafes and restaurants on the seafront. The harbour is picturesque and makes a brilliant backdrop to the fishing vessels entering and leaving port. Not to be missed is the Naval Museum, where you can gain some background knowledge of the culture that has helped develop Chania and Crete. Challenging for attention are the archeological and Byzantine museums, as well as the Crete and Chania historical archives.

A variety of interests and entertainment

As with most resorts by the sea, time in the water and on the beaches is an integral part of your holiday. The primary beach is Chania, which is a comfortable distance from most Chania holiday accommodation. However, you are at the most an easy ten kilometres distance from the furthest of six large and sandy beaches in the area. In the evening, there is a wide and varied choice of bars, pubs and restaurants, which are a source of entertainment for everyone. This is in direct comparison to the archaeological remains of Kydonia, which have been partially excavated. If you are seeking wonderful scenery, the magnificent Samaria Gorge close to the town will get you close to nature with walks along shaded paths.

Other places to see when in Chania

The old and characteristic fishing village of Almirda lies at the end of Souda Bay. It has retained its Cretan identity and charm, and is the ideal place from which to begin exploring the Chania Caves. Easily reached from Chania holiday rentals, you can stop at small cafes and restaurants on the way or in Almirda to enjoy some of the local foods and drinks.

Daily we walked to the beach, had a coffee while taking advantage of their internet. The local bus service made it easy to travel to other beaches or into Chania. Nightly we had a choice of restaurants or taverns . Although the unit was fitted with the very basic needs for cooking we found it was all we required and we never missed a television as we enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking a local wine and enjoying the view .
