OUR HISTORY
1938: Grandfather Aristeidis builds a cottage on the historical hill of prophet Elias, which lays on the east side of the city of Chania.
1941-1944: The cottage is been dictated under German conquerors, becomes a guardhouse and is given the name Kookoovaya probably because of the panoramic view of the city. Another myth says that the name comes from the many owls that used to nest around the area.
1997: The abandoned residence, after the end of occupation, is being regenerated, and Kookoovaya as a cafe - bar opens its wings.
