About Casa Leone

A historic Venetian villa

Welcome to “CASA LEONE” hotel, an authentically restored, historic Venetian villa built in the 15th century, situated at the romantic Venetian port of Chania Crete. Its original owners were Venetians descended from a well-known family of musicians named Leone, from whom our hotel has taken its name.

Casa Leone Venetian residence has been converted into a classy and romantic  hotel located into the historical old town of Chania. This beautiful Venetian quarter is a web of atmospherics streets that tumble onto a magnificent harbor with its 15th century light house “Faros”.

Not just a place to stay... an experience to remember!

After much work and with painstaking care, under the oversight of the Archaeological Service, Casa Leone residence has been converted into a classy and romantic hotel in 1999.

While modern conveniences and comforts have been added to Casa Leone hotel, it still retained the old wolrd charm that will take you back in earlier times to the romantic atmosphere of the Venetian period.

Chania old town

The cultural background of Chania is very rich, first of all due to town’s long history and its interaction with many diverse civilizations in the past. Sights as the Mosque of the “janissaries” (built 17th century) the Great “Arsenal”, the minaret of Achmet Aga and many other remnants of Turkish rules add to Chania an exotic charm.

Excellent Hotel in a Brilliant Location


We spent a week in Chania staying at the Casa Leone and could not have picked a better hotel.
Our thanks go to Nicholas and Anna, the owners, who stayed late to welcome us after our flight was delayed, this was only a foretaste of the excellent and friendly team that runs the hotel. We must mention Virginia and Maria who made a significant contribution to our wonderful experience whilst staying at Casa Leone. We felt so well looked after by everyone.
Our room had a balcony looking directly across the harbour and the view could not have been better.
Breakfasts were very generous and beautifully presented.
We had a wonderful stay at the hotel and the final touch was a parting gift from Nicholas and Anna.
We highly recommend the Casa Leone.
