It is said that the west side of Crete is the most beautiful part of the island, because it is very green and it has many nice beaches. Conte Marino Villas is situated on this part of the island and very close to the Chania city.
Kontomari Village, located 18 kilometers west of Chania. The main products of the region are olive oil and citrus. At Kontomari there are two cafes and a grocery. We strongly recommend you to stroll to the streets of the village and visit the surrounding villages that compose Kontomari. From the coastal Tower Psilonerou, Metochi and the other semi-mountainous settlements of the Valley and Xirokambi you will be filled with images, smells and experiences.
A great art exhibitions by he acclaimed artists Apostolis Zolotakis and Kelly Athanasiadou will be held at Conte Marino Villas this year. Please read more our blog.
Visit the picturesque and quaint, seeped in history and rich in culture, the little village of Fournes built against the hills en route from Chania to the Omalos Plateau is a must see. The village is a popular passing spot for those visiting the church of “Christ our Savior” in the Hoirospilios Cave. Enjoy watching traditional “Cretan Life” as you walk in the alleys, or sit at the local “Kafenion” and watch the village folk go about their errands.
Visit Chania, the most beautiful city of the island, enjoy your drink at the old port or a meal in one of the restaurants of the old city. Walk in the narrow streets and see the different architectural styles of the buildings. Visit the naval museum that is situated at the port and walk till the lighthouse, this is the right point to admire the port and the city. Enjoy live Cretan folk music over dinner at many of the tavernas; or browse through the souvenir shops – leather goods, jewellery and more others. The old-town of Chania, on and around the hill of Kasteli, was built upon the ruins of Minoan Kydonia and is surrounded by the Byzantine Wall, the Venetian Wall, harbor and sea. Seeped in history, complete the journey with a stop at the Archeological Museum which features exhibitions and archaeological findings from century’s back.
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.
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".
Chora Sfakion is the southernmost tip of Europe. It is perhaps best characterized by the temperament of its inhabitants, descendants of ancient civilizations and Byzantine families. Local village folk are so fiercely proud of their region that their characters could be said to reflect the rugged formation of the ground they prosper on.
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.
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)
The island of Agii Theodori is located very close to the Hotel. You can reserve an one day cruise to visit the island that is a refuge for the typical cretan goats " kri-kri".
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.
The Port of Kissamos is minutes away and from here, you can take a boat ride to the pirate island of Gramvousa and the world famous Balos Lagoon.
Visit Milia Traditional Village an authentic 17th century mountain settlement which has been transformed into an eco-friendly tourist complex which seems to have sprouted from the lands of Crete. Enjoy a daily walking trip around Milia - 2 hours, to gorge of Polyrhynnia – 4 hours, to gorge of Topoliannou – 3 hours, to gorge of Deliannou – 1.5 hours walking and 30 minute drive (26km) to reach the entrance, and don't leave this special place before you try the typical cretan cuisine that is famous for being among the healthiest around the world at Milia's restaurant.
Around fifty minutes drive south of Conte Marino Villas is the beautiful beach of Elafonissi where one can get lost exploring the island of Elafonissi (Deer Island) which is unique for the cedar sand dunes and unspoilt natural habitat.
Try some exquisite local fresh fish and traditional dishes from the world famous healthy Mediterranean diet at one of the local tavernas or restaurants.

During the hot summer months (June, July, August), the best time to schedule your visit is early in the morning to avoid the strong heat.
