Daratsos is a village only 2 km west of Chania Town
center. The main road Chania-Kissamos
separates the village from the sea, and its seaside part is known as Kato Daratso
or Makris Tichos. Kato Daratso has merged with the seaside settlements of Agii Apostoli to the west and Chania Town to the east, making it hard to tell one from each other.
