Western Crete probably offers some of the most attractive real estate prices compared to the rest of the Mediterranean EU countries. Besides the fact the price per meter of land in terms of the building factor allowed and the price per meter of finished construction present an excellent investment opportunity, other factors make investing in the region very attractive, such as:
  • The beauty of offered locations and their surrounding physical landscape. The prefecture of Hania, with its huge coastline, is a unique area of gorges, mountains and immense unspoiled natural beauty surrounded by the sea.
  • Various planning laws in Greece protect against overbuilding of such areas to a high degree.
  • Cretan real estate property has more upside potential to reach par with the prices in other Mediterranean locations such as Spain, Italy, Portugal and Cyprus.
  • There are international airports at Hania and Heraklion and ports at Hania (Souda), Rethymnon and Heraklion, so communications are regular, all year round.
The prefecture of Chania, named after the medieval city on its northern coast, has a diverse and spectacular landscape. Three mountain ranges rise majestically to almost 2,500m, The White Mountains, Psiloritis and Dikti. Almost forming a backbone along the length of the island they can remain snow capped until early summer. Acting as a barrier to the weather, they create one of the most temperate climates in Europe. As a result, Crete enjoys some of the mildest winters in the Mediterranean; allowing you to enjoy 12 months use of your property.

The vibrant and historic city of Chania, with its picturesque Venetian harbor and meandering backstreets, is the prefecture's economic and administrative capital. With a population of 80,000, the town offers every possible facility. Here, the ancient and the modern co-exist, with cosmopolitan shops and boutiques, traditional harbor-side tavernas, contemporary bars and cafes and tranquil tree-shaded plateias. Crete has two international airports Heraklion and Hania. Both are serviced by direct charters, with scheduled flights to and from all major European airports throughout the winter months. The island is also accessible by car via major ferry operators, running regular mainland services and excursions to several of the Aegean islands from the ports of Heraklion, Hania, Rethymno and Agios Nikolaos.
