Chania Hotels - Villa Venezia

Old Harbour showing the Villa Venezia

Chania Hotels - Villa Venezia, with a fantastic location directly overlooking Chania harbour, this small family-run pension represents good value for the old quarter of Xania, with cafes and shopping at your doorstep.

The sounds from the outdoor cafés and tavernas can be a little loud in summer, and this is a very heavily booked part of Chania in the busy season, so book ahead. There are only four rooms available, so you get individual service.

Casa Delfino

Casa Delfino, showing the lovely mosaic in the courtyard


Casa Delfino. This former mansion dates from 17th century. It has been restored and converted into an exclusive hotel with exquisite taste. From the mosaic in the courtyard, to the rooftop terrace with beautiful view over Chania harbour, everything is quality at Casa Delfino. 


View from Casa Delfino, from the rooftop lounge, looking over the old Venetian harbour


Tucked in behind the harbour amongst the narrow streets of old Chania, the Delfino is a twist and a turn only from the harbour with its endless ribbon of cafes and tavernas by the waterfront. With only 24 rooms and suites, this really is a peaceful piece of paradise, so stylish it has been visited by royalty such as Queen Sofia of Spain.
