My name is Deziree, and I am here to tell you the story of this historic home in Chania. But before I start with my story, allow me to introduce you to my city.
You find yourself in the heart of the Old Town of Chania, in the traditional Splantzia district. It is a quiet and picturesque neighborhood just a hundred meters from the Venetian Harbor of Chania, with its impressive lighthouse. Your stay here will pleasantly surprise you in many ways. Walking around the streets, you will be impressed by the colorful buildings, you will admire the coexistence of Christian churches and majestic Ottoman minarets, you will be enchanted by the smells of flowers in the yards of the houses, you will stop for a while to enjoy the music from the “hidden” little taverns, you will find your way through the Saturday outdoor market, where the locals call out their goods to sell, you will savor the unique Cretan tastes, but above all, you will be won over by the warmth of the people of Chania.
