The small traditional village of Kalidonia is located 4km from the larger and livelier village of Kolymbari.

Kalidonia is a very quiet village with just a few facilities such as a mini market and a cafeneon and is surrounded by olive groves. There is a traditional restaurant in the village of Melissourgio which is at the opposite hill, 10 minutes walking from Kalidonia. For more amenities, Kolymbari has everything to offer such as post office, restaurants, shops, doctors, schools, super markets and many more, and is open throughout the year.

Kalidonia used to be a crossroad of the old national road of Crete but since the new road has been built, bypassing the village, it has become more peaceful.

Kissamos town is 8km via the national road and there one can find all types of amenities as well as beaches and a port.

Chania city is a 35 minute drive while Chania airport is a 50 minute drive.
