Stores abound, many with similar local craftwork (pottery, silver, leather, olive products) though there are some fine standouts with higher...More

When I came to Crete, we stayed in Galatas, and pretty much everyday we took a 15 minute bus into Chania to go to the bars and restaurants of the Old Venetian Harbor- quite frankly it is such a magical place! Good for families and...More

The Venetian old harbour is an ideal location to stay whilst visiting beautiful Chania. It’s not too far from everything & will be quiet as it’s away from the restaurants & bars
