Chania is not a village, this is the area around Pelion
ski center, also called Agriolefkes. It is located on the highest point of the mountain and the entire peninsula, 13 km away from Makrinitsa
to the west and 18 km from the villages of Zagora
to the east.
In winter the resort is a popular ski destination, especially for people from the regions of Volos
and Larissa. In the summer it is very green and cool in the heat,with fresh air. Hotels and chalets are scattered all over the area, and along the main road you will find a few tavernas and more rooms to rent. Magnificent view toward Volos and the Pagasikitos gulf is revealed from almost any point of Chania but remember that the roads going up to it have many curves and bends.
