Start at Trianon Luxury Apartments & Suites and take a tour of Chania’s Old Town. Take a stroll around the historic centre with its picturesque alleys and Old Port and discover hidden gems. While there, marvel at the magnificent Venetian mansions, sneak through its cobblestone streets, and let the charm of the Old Town’s atmosphere soak in. You’ll probably end up at the Old Port for a peek at the Venetian lighthouse and have a cup of coffee or even lunch.
Trianon Luxury Apartments & Suites is located next to the Courthouse and Eleftherias Square. The Courthouse, or “The Courts” as it is called, was built during the last years of Turkish occupation (1893) and was intended for a Turkish military hospital. Later, however, it was where the offices of the Cretan State (1898-1913) were housed. At the centre of the square lies the statue of Eleftherios Venizelos, prime minister of Greece in the early 20th century, with many cafés and restaurants around it. The area is a favourite destination and a haven for locals who are often seen there during their lunch break.
Seitan Limania is an idyllic beach, with pale blue waters, shaped like a fjord, with strips of sea among the rocky shores. The beach lies some 22 km from Trianon Luxury Apartments & Suites, accessed by a steep but passable path leading to this enchanting beach. Before walking down, take a minute to take in the view from above, with all its stunning setting and then just continue down to a true paradise-on-earth.
Stavros is a seaside area located at Chania’s Akrotiri area, only 15 kilometres from our quarters. Its main beach is well organised, with umbrellas and sun loungers, while the village boasts cafés and tavernas for coffee and lunch. The area highlight is its rising hill that sets the stage for the Oscar-winning movie “Zorbas” and made the “Sirtaki” dance famous all over the world in the 1960s. This renowned beach resembles a circular lagoon and comes with beautiful turquoise waters and white sand. Definitely worth a visit!
Marathi lies in the southeastern part of Akrotiri and at 16 km from Trianon Luxury Apartment & Suites. The area features two lovely, blue water beaches, separated by a small picturesque port. The beaches are organised, with umbrellas and sun loungers, and above them you will find cafés and taverns to taste delicious Cretan specialties. The shallow, crystal clear and calm waters make these beaches ideal for families with children, but also for those days with strong winds.
Loutraki is a sheltered bay, surrounded by rocks, with a quiet sandy beach unaffected by winds. Getting there is a short drive of about 16 kilometers from our accommodation. The beach is organised, with umbrellas and sun loungers and features a quiet tavern and seaside bar, with lawn and loud music. Loutraki is a favourite destination both for families with children, because of the sand and clear waters, and for youngsters who consider it their meeting point.
Tampakaria is a historic area of Chania just a 5-minute drive from our accommodation. At the beginning of the 19th century, the area was home to tanneries, namely small leather craft businesses, which remained active until the end of the 1970s. The location choice was ideal because it was only minutes away from the city of Chania and lay by the sea, as seawater was necessary to treat the hides. A visit to the area is worth to admire the unique architecture of the buildings.
