Chania is a destination that we can recommend to anyone, it is suitable for any kind of vacation - and for young people fun at low prices, and for couples who want peace, and for families (there are many hotels, from 2-5 * who have apartments that can accommodate even 5-6 people and have kitchenette).
Natural conditions and landscapes are completely different from what most of us expect. The region is green paradise of Crete - resorts and areas of the resorts are studded with olive groves, citrus and other Mediterranean species. In fact almost every hotel, no matter how small, has a garden, an orchard, flowers, shrubs. At times you end up feeling like you're in the middle of Austria and not Greece ...
