The apartment is located in the privileged neighborhood of Halepa. Opposite the house is the palace (the residence of Prince George at the beginnings of the 20th century), the old French Academy, and the Museum of El. Venizelos (a Prime Minister of Greece, credited with being "the maker of modern Greece"), which used to be his residence and now has been restored and is open to the public. Behind the house is the Russian Orthodox Church Agia Magdalini and only 200 meters away lies the sea and the famous location of Tabakaria.
One can enjoy long walks around the area. The coastal area of Tabakaria is within 3 minutes walking distance, the place where the tanneries used to operate in the 19th century. Tabakaria, nowadays declared as a monument of industrial archaeology, is the most exclusive and therefore most expensive real estate land in the city of Chania.
Walking down El. Venizelou Street, only 100 meters away from the house, there is a small view point alongside the street from where you could enjoy panoramic views of the sea and the city of Chania. As it looks towards the west, it is a spot promising unforgettable sunsets. Worthwhile mentioning is that just 200 meters from the apartment the brand new Archaeological Museum of Chania is located, which is in a transitional status; it is ready but still not open to the public, as the exhibits have not moved there yet.
In the area there are cafes, supermarket and restaurants, some with the most amazing view. Last, but not least, within a few minutes walking distance from the house there are some places for a quick dip into the sea (Koum Kapi, Kouloura, Honoloulou), however hiring a car is highly recommended in order to visit the top beaches which lie at the west and the south part of the island.
Exactly opposite the building's main entrance there is a bus station and the public transportation is very frequent. One can also easily walk along the sea towards the city centre (15' - 20' walking distance from the Venetian Old Town). Free parking is always available also on Dagli street around the corner.
