Breakfasts at Casa Delfino are legendary. Local cheeses and olives, homemade bread and homemade marmalade from organic fruits, sesame honey bars, or yoghurt with thyme honey are just some of the Cretan treats to tempt you. A daily array of freshly baked cakes and pies have been made to the same family recipes for generations. Sissy’s lemon pie and Granny’s chocolate cake are quite simply irresistible. Gluten and lactose free breakfasts are also available. During the winter, breakfast is served indoors in the cosy dining room.
Casa Delfino's elegant courtyard and the nearby foreign press kiosk are likely to make you to enjoy a longer than intended breakfast ... "go slowly" way of life.
The Bar and Lounge serving drinks and light menu options out to the Casa Delfino’s pebbled courtyard which is a romantic oasis where guests can read, relax, or simply soak up the serene ambience.
Casa Delfino’s spectacular roof terrace features a lounge bar, a hot tub and a shaded seating area. Relax and enjoy commanding views from the majestic White Mountains to the sea. This is surely Chania’s most glamorous setting for sundowners or for those who wish to enjoy a cocktail and a light appetizer, high above the hustle and bustle of the harbour.
For your dinner, Hania has some of the finest restaurants in Crete with a few of them to be housed in roofless Venetian ruins. As it might be expected the most of the prime-positon waterfront tavernas are generally mediocre and most of them quite overpriced. Therefore head for the quiter backstreets for the best food and wine.
Kids of all ages are welcome, but this Hotel is a very romantic one and it is appreciated especially by couples.
Children of all ages are welcome ar Casa Delfino.
The 2-bedroom apartments are the best option for families, with one double bedroom and one twin. An extra (5th) bed can be added in some of them.
Casa Delfino Hotel is in the Old Town of Chania, very close to the old harbour, but away from the noise. Ideal base to explore the whole town with the narrow streets and admire the old buildings with the different architectural styles.
Visit the maritime museum on the west side of the port and walk along the port till Arsenali where is situated the Arsenali Centre of Mediterranean Architecture that organises exhibitions and has as primary goal to promote the Mediterranean arts.
In Summer, the municipality hosts cultural events around the town, including these in the public gardens and at the open air-theatre on the outskirts of the town walls, which has various music and theatrical performances.
Swim. The nearest beach is 500m away, Agii Apostgolli Beach is 4 km, and the famous long beach of Agia Marina, is 7km away. Or maybe you prefer the enclosed waters of Marathi bay, on the Akrotiri peninsula.
Also on Akrotiri peninsula, beyond the airport, there are two very impressive monasteries, inhabited by a few monks and both are opened to appropriately dressed visitors in the morning and late afternoon, Agia Triada or Jakaoron, renowned for its traditions this unique olive oil is produced, and the historic monastery of Gouvernetou the more remote which resembles a castle, with towers which served to defend it from raiders.
Beyond Gouvernetou lies a wonderful hiking trail to the cliff chapel of Katholikon and an azure-watered inlet below. The aquamarine water would be very inviting for a swim before the climb back up to Gouverneto Monastery, if this were not strictly prohibited by the monks.
If you are looking for more quite beaches, Falasarna, is a very long beach that is located on the west part of island, 44km from your hotel, What makes this beach so unique, is the length, you can walk along the sandy beach for a lot of time. Or drive 2 hours southwest to Elafonisi (try and get there before the afternoon crowds), or 1 hour west the well-known Balos Beach (the latter requires a short hike, or a boat from Kastelli).
A trip by car I would suggest: To "Therissos" - you drive through a beautiful gorge. The village itself is historic and has some good tavernas like "Andartis". But if you have time, you can continue further to Zourva and come down to Chania again via Meskla. This is a spectacular drive (if the atmosphere is clear and not too hazy), marked on some maps as unpaved - but it is now paved. Just after Zourva there is a taverna on its own with glass windows with 360 views and good local food.
Join of the fascinating cooking workshops at Miia Traditional Village, a great introduction to Cretan to seasonal cooking and the culture of Cretan gastronomy - cuisine.
Or maybe you would like to visit one of the best wineries in Crete, Manousakis Winery.
Samaria Gorge is the longest gorge in Europe, if you like gorges, walk through this gorge and the experience will be unique. It is a long gorge, 16km, and you need about 6 hours to pass it, that means that it is not allowed to walk the long way if you have any health problem. If you think that 16km are too many, you can see the last part of the gorge. You have to drive till Chora Sfakion and then you take the boat to Agia Roumeli, where is the exit of the gorge, you just have to walk a few kilometers in the gorge, at least till the most narrow point "portes".
Next to Samaria gorge there is another gorge, shorter but very beautiful because it is very narrow in some points. This is Imbros gorge and you need just 2 hours to pass it. You can combine this walk, with swimming to Fragokastelo beach, as it is very close to the exit of the gorge.
For those who love horse riding, there is a horse riding center in Akrotiri, that organises daily excursions at that area. You just need to make a reservation.
Explore Rethymno's old town and especially the waterfront and streets just behind. Walk along the harbour wall to the Venetian lighthouse. The Fortezza (fortress) was built by the Venetians (1573) to protect the city. Not only are walls, church and the remains of its buildings of interest, the views from it to the town are a great way to start planning your tour of the town. There are also sweeping sea views. Open daily.
Don't miss to visit Rethimnon's Archaelogical Museum which occupies a building almost directly opposite the entrance to the fortress. It's worth a look especially if you are going to the bigger museums in other towns. Here you could enjoy Minoan pottery and sarcophagi and lots of Roman coins, jewellery, pots and statues, all from Rethimno province. Take a look at an unusual unfinished Roman statue of Aphrodite.
Head South from Rethymno to the sandy Palm Beach of Preveli, a sand-filled cove right at the end of the Kourtaliotiko gorge, where a freshwater estuardy feeds a little oasis complete with palm grove and cluster of oleanders ( at the beginning and the end of the season it is lovely).
