Chania harbour

Chania, the picturesque Venetian city with its historic harbour, is a fabulous place to visit and stroll around the old town, then eat by the waterfront or along one of many hidden side streets. It is only 30 minutes away by car or bus.

The village of Paidohori is situated between Chania and Rethymno. Chania airport is approximately 45 minutes away, and Heraklion airport is under 2 hours.

We are 2-3 minutes from the Agioi Pantes junction on the national road. There is public transport from Chania and Rethymno to Agioi Pantes on the national road, where there is a taxi rank. However, we recommend that guests hire a car.

The English owners, Chris and Kathie, live upstairs in a separate apartment.
