“Paleohora is a lovely summer resort located 80 km south ewest of Chania town. The picturesque village lies between two coves where is also found a lovely port from where boats depart from Sougia and other villages of Crete. The village consist of two wonderful beaches, one with soft sand and one with nice pebbles. Both are gifted with refreshing crystalline waters which are always protected from the strong winds making an ideal place to relax during the summer holidays. Paleochora is a popular summer destination for tourists and is extremely busy during the high season but still there are many quiet places for those who care for some relaxation and tranquility. The village offers many types of accommodations, plenty of restaurants and taverns, shops and bars that remain open until the late hours. The Venetian fortress of Paleochora is called "Selino" and stands at the top of the settlement. It was built on 1820. Among the things that captivate every visitor in Paleochora are the beautiful whitewashed little houses dressed in colourful flowers and picturesque alleys. Regular buses connect Chania Town with the village of Paleochora.”
