chania4_opt_opt

If you are looking for a luxury break away in one of Greece’s most beautiful locations, then this five star week in Crete is for you!

 

This super deal to Crete flies directly from Dublin into Chania, otherwise known as ‘little Venice’. It’s stunning harbour filled with old Venetian buildings and narrow streets make it a beautiful place to stroll around. The waterfront cafes and restaurants are packed with people enjoying the fabulous Greek food and the atmosphere is almost tangible. Many old buildings have been transformed into boutique hotels but they still retain the character of this great city.

There are plenty of quaint shopping streets with local souvenir and craft shops as well as galleries and museums to explore. The surrounding area has numerous sight seeing options, the Samaria Gorge being the most famous. Explore the mountain villages or simply relax on one of Crete’s sandy beaches, the choice is yours.

I found this great deal in the contemporary Cretan Dream Royal Hotel, situated at Kato Stalos Beach, just 6km from Chania, the location offers you the best of both worlds. You can relax in one of their luxury suites at this beach front hotel or choose to explore the vibrant city of Chania. The excellent facilities on site as well as the warm welcome guests receive are the reason that tripadvisor awarded it with a certificate of excellence last year.
