Climatic features of the region

Chania is located in the western part of the island, which is also the greenest part of it. It rains very often in winter, and summers are dry and hot. During the winter, the land is highly saturated with moisture, so the trees in the warm season simply rage with color and greenery. The climate in the Chania region is very mild, therefore it is best suited for seasonal vacations: in summer the temperature ranges from 24 to 30 degrees on average, and in winter it does not drop below 13 degrees.
