Welcome to Chania
Location with astonishing and unobstructed sea view

Revellino del Porto is a spacious maisonette with astonishing and unobstructed sea view. It's located within the walls of Firka, in the heart of the Chania’s old town. Its history begins in the 16th century when the Venetians, in order to protect the city of Chania, built Revellino del Porto, a fortification against hostile attacks. Inside the walls the space was formed with appropriate buildings and warehouses. Revellino del Porto - the house - lies on the roof of the castle. It's windows and balconies offer a breathtaking and panoramic view of the lighthouse. It's position in the old town coastline offers easy access to cozy restaurants, cafes, bars and shops.


Outdoor Living and sightseen

The front terrace of the house is a 100m2 open area enclosed within the castle walls and allows guests to enjoy beautiful days and evenings by the sea. It extends over the Venetian coat of arms above the lion of Saint Mark, a small architectural geme, built in 1580 as the "guardian angel" of the Venetian city of Chania. This private terrace overlooking the sea, is considered an archeologically preserved space and has unparalleled view on the castle's embrasures and the lighthouse. On the right is the Nautical Museum, on the left, the entrance of the Old Harbor and the turret of the castle - a timeless symbol of freedom for Crete.

Enjoy a bird eye view from the balconies and veranda on the second floor, where the main bedroom is located. Indulge yourself in watching the sunrise and sunset over the sea. For a change of scenery, relax in our 15m2 covered veranda built over "Andrea Ritzou" street. This veranda offers panoramic view of the small, colorful cobblestones streets of the old town.

The construction of the house took place in the late 19th century. There are photos of the house in its original form since 1923. Since then, it has been renovated many times and by recent licence, it has been reconstructed according to the old plans and instructions of the archeological service.
