Built in 1870


a neo-classic mansion


Villa Andromeda at Chania in Crete is a neo-classical mansion built in 1870. It has been very carefully restored so as to preserve its characteristic nineteenth-century architecture.
During the period of the  autonomous Cretan state (1897-1912), the villa andromeda housed the German consulate.
Nearby stood more mansions, including the consulates of the other great powers of the day,
the palace of Prince George (high commissioner of Crete), and the residence of Eleftherios Venizelos (later prime minister of Greece).
In 1940, the Villa Andromeda was used by the German military authorities and among those who stayed there as guests was field-marshal Rommel, Commander of the Afrika korps.

The villa andromeda is located in the Halepa district, just 1 km from the center of the town of Chania.
It stands on a prime site above the wonderful bay of Chania, looking out across the expanse of the Cretan sea.
Behind are the foothills of the towering white mountains – still snow-capped even in early summer –
while from the veranda there is a view down to the Venetian walls and old town of Chania,
with its houses of dressed stone bearing all the colors that the centuries have left.
