The Crete region
The Crete region
Crete is the largest and most beautiful of all the Mediterranean islands. It has an unspoilt tranquillity with a gentle temperate climate and year long sunshine.
The history of Crete stretches back many centuries to the very beginnings of modern western civilisation. Over the years it was coveted and conquered by the Romans, the Ottoman Turks and the Venetians. All drawn by the island’s strategic location, natural resources and immense beauty.
The landscape and scenery is uniquely diverse – the majestic snow capped White Mountains, the thriving ecology of Lake Kournas, the awesome natural splendour of the great Samaria Gorge. And, of course, the endless sands of the Blue Flag beach of Georgioupolis, which is the longest in Europe.
Amongst other things, the many great attractions of Crete include 310 days of annual sunshine and the cleanest waters in the Med. The Cretan people are warm and hospitable – and perhaps not surprisingly, enjoy the longest life expectancy in Europe.
The island itself measures some 260kms by 56kms, and it has a relatively small population of around 600, 000 – so it’s far from crowded. The currency is the Euro and the language Greek, though English is widely spoken.
The Chania area
Chania was the capital of Crete until 1972, and many still believe it to be one of the prettiest towns in Greece. Reminders of its Byzantine past abound, and the town successfully combines its ancient history with vibrant modern life, including a wealth of fascinating shops of every description.
From traditional knife makers to Leather Lane, from designer furniture to the fresh fish market - Chania has it all! In addition to the best shopping in Crete, Chania also offers a first class choice of restaurants to suit every taste, plus a buzzing nightlife.
No visit to Chania would be complete without exploring the picturesque harbour area and admiring the many hauntingly beautiful old buildings of Venetian and Turkish design, all blending together in perfect harmony to create an unforgettable picture. Return in the evening, and there is change of pace and atmosphere. Live music bars, sophisticated clubs and laid-back tavernas.
Chania celebrates a full programme of special occasions throughout the year, starting with the annual New Year fireworks. And in addition to a whole calendar of feast days, there are weekly summer festivals. Whether these are promoting local food and wine or celebrating the local arts and culture, they are enjoyed by visitors and townsfolk alike. Day or night, summer or winter, Chania is always alive and has much to tempt visitors to spend at least one day of their precious time away from the beach.
