The village is 26 km away from the city of Chania, in the middle of the road between Chania and Rethymnon, and a mere 1,5 km from the basic road axis of Crete of Chania-Heraklion at the foot of Lefka Ori.
The warmth of the mountainous scenery and the mild Cretan winters make Pemonia an ideal destination for winter getaways; at the same time, its proximity to the picturesque beaches of Kalyves and Almyrida (only 9 km away) and the endless beaches of Georgioupolis (8 km away) provides an alternative solution for wonderful summer vacations.
In the nearby villages at less than 2 km away, there are many traditional taverns serving genuine traditional Cretan dishes made with excellent local products. Local people, who can appreciate what Cretan cuisine has to offer, often choose the taverns in Agioi Pantes (just 1.5 km away), Tzitzifes (1.5 km away) and Melidoni (2 km away) for their excellent food. Of course, a little farther away you will find many more seaside taverns and restaurants in Kalyves, Georgioupolis, Almyrida and Armeni.
