Places of Interest and Things to Do

The prefecture of Chania can offer unique experiences to even the most demanding traveler.

Fairytale beaches such as Elafonissi and Balos have now gained worldwide fame and promise to enchant you with their crystal clear waters.

The picturesque villages, hidden in the White Mountains are ideal for a visit but also are a place where one can admire the beauty of nature. The more adventurous travelers, who seek for more action, can choose from a wide range of water sports or get to know better the flora and fauna of the area, walking in one of the many hiking trails. Samaria gorge, the second largest in Europe, is just one of the countless gorges of the prefecture. However, the caves of the area are also remarkable, such as the elephant cave.

The rich history of the prefecture, which begins in ancient times and is obviously influenced by the Egyptians, Venetians and Turks who dominated the area throughout the years, will pleasantly surprise you with its architecture. Learn more during your visit to one of the countless museums.

The reception of our accommodation is always willing to provide you with additional information and to help you plan your vacation to your liking.

Greek Flavours

The cuisine of the country you are visiting is inextricably linked to its culture.

During your visit to our accommodation, do not forget to taste the traditional dishes of our place, cooked with "meraki" (passion).

We care for the environment

Our company's priority is the protection of the environment.

For this reason, our staff is constantly trained and follows the sustainability practices that have been implemented in our accommodations.

Recycling is the first action for this and we are careful in separating waste. We also use environmentally friendly detergents that do not harm the ecosystem. We change the towels upon customer's request and thus help reduce water consumption.

The pools have an ionization system for water purification, which does not cause harmful gases and at the same time protects the swimmers' health.

In the rooms, mechanisms have been installed in the hydraulic system for less water consumption by our guests.

The water is heated by solar water heaters, which use renewable energy, thus significantly reducing the emission of carbon dioxide and other harmful substances from the combustion of conventional fuels. Our next goal is the installation of photovoltaics to meet our needs for electricity.

Our company monitors innovations in the field of environmental protection and adopts them!
