My friend Chrissie and i chose Casa veneta due to its superb location at the gates of the old Town, 2 minutes away from where the taxi drops you to enter the pedestrianised old town. a lovely old Venetian villa with large rooms and a cool atrium. The simple apartment was much prettier and more comfortable than the pictures suggested and the charming balcony overlooked the cobbled street and the sea. Theres a lot of lovely places in Chania but there's only one STAVROS, the utterly charming, witty, erudite and elegant patron. Our best times in Crete were spent sipping ice-cold house raki with father and delightful son, Giorgos, listening to stories, sharing history, chewing over the politics and discussing music and restaurants. They were absolutely superb hosts which made our trip to this very touristy, bustling and relatively affluent town feel special . I feel like we actually made friends and i cannot recommend this marvellous ( ridiculously cheap!) pension highly enough. thank you

- Tucked away in a narrow side street in the old quarter of Chania, Casa Veneta has plenty of olde worlde charm.It is a new, four storey building which we have sympathetically reconstructed from an old Venetian facade. For your convenience we have a television lounge on the ground floor.
