House size: 200 m²

This elegant residence is an ample, historic, four-bedroom residence located in the “Palazzo del Rettore”, one of Chania’s oldest and most exquisite national monuments. Rising above the Byzantine walls of Kastelli, it overlooks the beautifully preserved Chania Old Venetian Harbour.

The 200 square meters residence covers the entire top floor of the “Palazzo del Rettore”, a building dating from the 14th century. Set high on the fortified hill at the heart of the old town, the residence offers spectacular views to the Chania Venetian Harbour including the famous lighthouse, the Maritime Museum of Crete and the Giali Tzami Mosque as well as to the “Big Blue” Aegean Sea from all its northern rooms. Its south and east oriented rooms offer views to the old city and the small “piazza” with the lemon trees connecting the rest of the traditional residences. Its large rooftop terrace enjoys a bird’s eye, 360º unobstructed view to the “White Mountains” of Chania, the Old Harbour and the nearby beaches at the horizon.

The owners offer a relaxing, comfortable and elegant stay in Chania, the beautiful city mentioned in all tourist guides as the most picturesque and must-see town while visiting Crete.

History

The “Palazzo del Rettore” was built on the Byzantine wall over the port of Chania and housed the Venetian archives and the residence of the Venetian ruler of Chania until 1645 when Chania surrendered to the Ottoman Turks and the building became the residence of the Turkish Pasha.

The building miraculously survived the heavy bombing of the Kastelli hill during WWII but required major repairs to become habitable again. Dorothy Andrews, an American painter visiting Chania after the war, fell in love with the house and used it as her residence and art studio until she passed away in 2008.
