When to travel

With its Mediterranean climate, there isn’t really a bad time to visit Crete. The year round climate is generally warm and sunny with the risk of an odd shower over winter. July and August can be very hot and typically busy months on the island. May and October are good months to visit.


Domes Noruz has a superb location in Agioi Apostoloi one of the most beautiful areas in Chania. Located on the west side of the city, approx. 10km from the town centre. Here pine and eucalyptus trees offer plenty of natural shade and the sandy beaches are popular with visitors and locals. It is a 25 minute drive to the resort by private transfer. 

Chania is located in the far west of Crete about 100 miles west of Heraklion, the islands capital city. Its bay is protected by a pair of peninsulas: Rodhopu to the west and Akrotiri to the east. Please note that Greece is 2 hours ahead of GMT.
