Casa Leone


Casa Leone is a historic Venetian villa built in the 15th century, located at the romantic Venetian port of Chania. Painstaking care has gone into restoration of the building and it opened its doors as a hotel in 1999.

While modern conveniences and comforts have been added to Casa Leone, it still retained the old world charm that will take you back in time to the romantic Venetian period. The owners and staff provide service that is second to none, welcoming each guest warmly and making them feel as though they are visiting friends.

Customers rave about the highly personalized service – from iced coffee and fresh fruit while waiting to be checked in, to packed snacks to take while sightseeing; from unbelievably hearty breakfasts to recommendations for trips to take, places to visit, eateries to try – user KylieCheshire on TripAdvisor describes it as “personal service where nothing is too much trouble and the welcome lasts long after you leave.”
