CHANIA'S ACTIVITIES

Chania, the city that combines everything!

At the heart of the charming old Venetian Port of Chania, our boutique hotel brings you closer to the magic of the Old Town. Wander through the very same alleys that Venetians, Arabs and Turks have walked on over the centuries and take a fascinating travel down history lane. Feel the charm of its tight cobblestone streets and Venetian mansions, and try to unravel their secrets. Mind you, though, the Old Town always offers new flavours and aromas.
