Our recommendation for your private excursion in Chania: Paleochora
Paleochora is the most known destination in the south coast of the Chania prefecture. It was one of the first small villages in Crete to become a known destination by itself, decades ago.
Paleochora should be your first destination when you organize an excursion in the south of Chania. The climate here is mild all year round, and many locals and visitors swim even in winter. And there are a lot of splendid beaches in and around Paleochora, as you will see in more detail below.
Paleochora used to be inhabited for many centuries, and its strategic position on top of a small peninsula had led the Venetians to build a big castle here to protect the area. You can still find some remnants of the “Castel Selino”, as it was called, in the outskirts of the village, close to the harbour. The name of the castle has given its name to the whole area, which is called “Selino” until the present day.
Possibly the most charming aspect of Paleochora is its village centre. In spring and summer, the centre of the village gets pedestrianized after sunset, and all the taverns and cafes fill the roads with tables, which in turn fill with vibrant and lively locals and visitors alike.
Paleochora has this magical feeling, that makes you want to come back again and again. It is not a coincidence that in the weekends of August it is sometimes difficult to book a room, as, apart from visitors, many locals from Chania city make their own excursions to Paleochora.
