Aris hotel is the impressive art hotel of Paleochora, Crete. It is open all year round to offer you the chance to experience Crete every season of the year. Paleochora is the travel capital of southwest Crete. It is a big village and a very unique and popular destination in South Crete for decades. The great advantages of Paleochora are its superb climate, its stunning collection of no less than 10 nearby beaches, and its traditional-Cretan-village feeling that is still alive today.
The “Filoxenia Studios & Apts” located in the lovely Paleochora just 60 meters from the main beach “Pachia Ammos” and just 100 meters from the restaurants and shops. This is a classic three-storey building which consists of twelve studios on the ground floor and the first floor and three apartments on the second floor.
The Libyan Princess Boutique Hotel is located in one of the most beautiful resorts of Crete, gorgeous Paleochora, also known as “Nymph of the Libyan Sea” 75km from the city of Chania. Paleochora, built on a peninsula between two scenic gulfs, is an idyllic location harmoniously combining mountains and the deep blue coasts of the Libyan Sea.
Reviews of Paleochora, Chania
marialen22 27 Jan 2011An amazing trip to the pastMy grandmother was from Paleochora, a village in Chania. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to travel there, till last summer, when my cousin and I decided we should go. We arrived at the port of Chania early in the morning, the weather was so nice that day. We found out that the buses for Paleochora leave every hour from early morning until the evening. Luckily, we didn't have to wait at all, we got into the bus (for some reason it wasn't the best bus to catch) to Paleochora.
The ride lasted about 2 hours, passed through a dozen great villages. As soon as we got off the bus we had a little stroll around a beautiful beach where the bus left us. The truth is that we were exhausted from the trip so we started walking until we found our hotel. It was only a few meters away from the sea and we had the best views from our balcony. We waited for the sun to set, it was very hot that day, and we were ready to explore the village.
We were impressed by the whitewashed houses, the pathways and small streets full of flowers. The town has all kinds of amenities and that is why it is based in tourism and agriculture (tomatoes and olive oil). We tried to find our grandmas house but unfortunately it was all ruins. We sort of expected it because no one had taken care of it. We went to several beaches, Pachia Ammos, a long beach on the west of Paleochora, Votsala, a pebble beach with crystalline waters and Gialliskari. We loved the taverns that they were near the beach, enjoyed the seafood and the local deserts. Had a great time! Wish to go back soon!
