Caribbean like beaches, medieval castles, delicious Mediterranean food, wineries, hiking path and diving sites... Chania's region at the north west of Crete seems to gather the best of what Greece has to offer.
Contrary to what some may think, the low season on the island is far from dull. While most tourists go home at the end of the blazing hot summer, Crete enjoys a lovely Indian summer that only those who come after October can truly appreciate.
While you are most welcome to stay at the villa and enjoy the sunsets over the pool and the bay, we would highly recommend that you take advantage of Chania and its surroundings.
While it is easy to walk around the villas and access shops and restaurants, driving is a really great way to make the best out of everything the island has to offer. That is why we have partnered with Value Cars Rental - a local car rental - who offers preferential rates.
Just mention Greek Escape when booking with them.
Yiannis is our official travel guide of Crete - and a local here. He knows most (if not all!) hidden corners and secret vistas of Crete, and will guide us off the beaten bath to discover local gems. For newcomers, he organizes a tour of Chania where he passes by all must-see locations and narrow cobblestone streets in the Old Town to get an insightful sense of how locals live, eat and socialize.
Working from home is amazing... but even in the most amazing villas, we sometimes need a change of scenery. That is why we have partnered with Workhub Chania, the local co-working that provides super fast internet in a modern space - with hot desks, booths, printers, monitors, relaxing areas.
