The holiday ideals “peace and rest & recuperation“ best characterise our hotel. Our hotel is quiet, situated on a long shingle beach. The beach is never full and there is plenty of shade there and in the hotel garden for a snooze under mature palm and tamarisk trees. The hotel garden has always been the family‘s calling card and provides plenty of space for the guests staying in the 20 rooms.

The bus stop is approx. 300 metres along the coastal road and it takes only about 50 minutes for the bus ride into Chania - City.
