The elegant 17th century Venetian mansion of Casa Delfino Suites Hotel is in the old Venetian harbour of Chania, on the island of Crete. Carefully and attractively restored, this establishment is an exclusive luxury hotel of just 22 suites, open year-round, just 17 km from the Chania International Airport and seven kilometres from the nearest port of Souda Bay.
All suites have remote control TV with satellite channels including CNN, NBC& BBC. They also have direct-dial hone, deluxe bathroom (some with hydromassage), mini bar in room, security safe and laundry service.
From Casa Delfino's comfortable retreat, guests can easily explore the colourful streets of the old town of Chania, lined with fine shops and restaurants, while a good bus service provides easy access to the local beaches and exciting sites around the island to explore the historical legacies of the Minoan, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman civilizations.
The climate and geography of the region allow for the existence of numerous species, many of which are endemic to the area. As a result, visitors can find natural treasures that have existed there for centuries, as depicted in the Minoan Frescoes such as the sea lily along the coastal zone, sea turtles "caretta-caretta" that lay their eggs on the beaches and may even see the Eleonora's Falcon "Falco Eleonore" that migrates there from Africa during the summer months.
Visitors have a chance not only discover, but also actively participate in the preparation of many local products that make the traditional Cretan diet the healthiest in the world, including cold-pressed virgin olive oil, organic yogurt and homemade pasta; honey preserves and dried figs; olives, wild herbs and pure olive oil soap, organic wine straight from the barrel, as well as sage-flavoured "tsikoudia", the local "fire-water". One can descend on the vineyards to pick grapes, then trample them into organic wine; or roam the hills in search of wild herbs and medicinal plants.
