Why is Chania a great place to live?

EBC’s TEFL course Chania Greece staff all wish you a warm welcome.

Chania is one of the best places to find TEFL jobs in Greece.

Chania, or XANIA as it is spelled in Greek, is a beautiful coastal town located on Crete, the largest of all the Greek islands. Crete lies south of the Aegean Sea. It has snow-capped mountains and lush green coastal plains. There are many historical sites to visit including Knossos, home of the fabled Minotaur. The island offers an abundance of beautiful beaches and rocky coves, charming villages and quaint harbours as well as excellent food.

Chania was built, according to archaeological research, on the ruins of the ancient town of Kydonia, dating back to the Minoan period 1900-2200 B.C.

Chania’s old town is considered Crete’s most beautiful urban district, especially the crumbling Venetian harbour with its 15th century lighthouse Faros and the Mosque of the Janissaries Giali Tzamissi, built in the 17th century.

Many of the old buildings have been restored as hotels, restaurants, shops and bars, making the old town a lively and colourful place during the tourist period especially May-September. The Splantzia quarter behind the inner harbour and the Venetian Arsenals are still largely untouched and very atmospheric. The clean beaches of Chania have a tradition for winning the “blue flags” of Europe and are accessible for all ages throughout the year.
