Why go to Chania

For a fresh take on Greece, book holidays in Chania, the second largest city on the sunshine island of Crete.

Chania offers Venetian splendour, a pleasant harbour scene, authentic cuisine and a bevy of beautiful monuments...

For many, holidays in Greece are about relaxing in sleepy villages or partying in nightlife hotspots, with rarely a glance at cities other than Athens… But why not consider shaking up your holiday cocktail and spending some time in a buzzing urban area of Greece? It is in cities such as Chania that the heart and soul of everyday Greek life is laid out in all its magnificence. Expect historic architecture, cafes filled with elderly gents playing card games, fascinating museums, the bustling atmosphere of a working harbour, as well as tasty, traditional dishes from family-run restaurants where recipes have been handed down from one generation to the next.

Booking a Chania holiday certainly doesn’t mean giving up the pleasures of days spent at the beach. The town’s main beach is mere minutes on foot from the harbour, with a number of others a little further away. The wider region has some of the best beaches on the island - book car hire in Chania and you can pop to your favourite seaside paradise whenever you fancy.
