Paleochora is a coastal town located on the southwest coast of Crete. The town has the natural advantage of being built between two bays; the eastern and the western.
The small peninsula is protected from strong seasonal winds by the surrounding mountains. The mountains, located geographically north of Paleochora are impressive due to their height (300 m), and because they possess a unique natural beauty and grace that combines rugged upland hills and crevices with lowland vegetation of aromatic shrubs and plants.
This rare and somewhat rugged landscape is located 35 Κm from our villa and you will need about 55 minutes to get there.
