Luxury Hotel Holidays

Crete West (Chania)


One of the most popular Greek Islands holiday destinations, Chania is in the north east of Crete.  It is a Venetian built city with many splendid old buildings still standing from that time and is the second largest city on Crete.  The city enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with sunny dry summers and mild rainy winters. The visitors have the great chance to find a wide range of accommodations, restaurants, bars, shops and night clubs. They can also enjoy the beautiful beaches and the amazing view. The city of Chania has also its own airport.


The municipality of Platanias is located in the prefecture of Chania on the west end of the island of Crete. Crete is known worldwide as the cradle of the Minoan civilization, one of the most advanced, significant and oldest civilizations in the world; the region of Platanias cannot be excluded from this. Placed on the top and the slopes of a steep hill, it extends downwards towards the sea, accompanied by the clear waters of the beautiful river Keritis on its side. The river is well known from the epic poems of Homer by the ancient Greek name of Iardanos.

Greece Overnight Stay Tax

From 1 January 2018, you’ll need to pay an Overnight Stay Tax which has been introduced by the Greek Ministry of Tourism and aims to enhance the State’s revenue in the context of the current fiscal adjustment programme. This will be collected from you when you get to your accommodation. The tax works out at €3 per room for 4* hotels, €4 per room for 5* hotels. When and how to pay: You’ll be asked to pay the tax when you check-in at your accommodation, this can be paid by cash or card Why do I have to pay: The tax is something new and specifically aimed at tourists. It’s a cost beyond our control and the suppliers of the accommodation. It’s a Government imposed tax that has to be paid when you stay in accommodation in Greece. Whilst our website holiday information does mention the possibility of local taxes like this, we understand this cost is something you probably weren’t expecting to pay and are sorry the Government has decided to bring this in so quickly.
