Welcome to New Kydonia

The New Kydonia is a family-run complex of apartments and villas near the historical Venetian port of Chania (Hania) in Western Crete. Situated on the hillside above Daratsos against a backdrop of the majestic White Mountains, the New Kydonia has magnificent, panoramic views of Chania and Chania Bay.

Apartments and villas are comfortable, spacious, modern and superbly appointed; all are equipped to a high standard which includes air conditioning, safety deposit box, hair dryer, iron, satellite TV and DVD player. Kitchen equipment includes oven, microwave oven, fridge-freezer, toaster, etc.

The setting for the apartments must be one of the best on Crete: beautiful mediterranean gardens and green lawns around a stunning 27m x 11m swimming pool; the terrace bar and restaurant overlooks the gardens and pool and beyond to Chania and the ocean.

Whether you prefer your holiday to be an action-packed Cretan voyage of discovery or you would simply like to relax lazily by the pool, a stay at the New Kydonia apartments and villas will help to make yours a trip to remember forever.
