The small and peaceful village of Pontikiana is located 4km inland from the coastal road and 5.5km from the village of Tavronitis.

At an altitude of 190m, Pontikiana is a resident's village with no shops or amenities. For super market, restaurants and beach, one will need to drive either to Tavrontis or Kolymbari (approximately a 10-12 minute drive).

The village is literally lying in a sea of olive groves at the top of a hill.

What makes Pontikiana an attraction is the famous winery of Katavitakis which is run - very successfully- by a local family specializing in olive oil production and winemaking for many years. Definitely worth a visit if you are a wine lover!

The well known village of Vouves with its ancient olive tree is just a 5 minute drive from Pontikiana.

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