“Very Special People”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

My Husband and I booked this accommodation after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and I am so pleased we did as it is the most friendly, welcoming place we have ever stayed in. The owners Andreas and Evita are perfect, generous hosts and the lovely Anna always has a smile on her face as well as being a wealth of information. Everyone works very hard to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible and nothing is too much trouble.

The apartment was spotless and well equipped, there are plenty of sunbeds and to our joy there was no reserving of them, the pool is gorgeous and the food is great.

The location is really good as the beach is 5 minutes walk away and the bus stop into Chania is situated outside the apartments. The road is very busy but as people say if you just wait there will be a gap in the traffic eventually, you are on holiday after all so you should not be in a hurry!

The excellent reviews are more than justified, I feel most people arrive as guests and leave feeling more like friends, I am certain we will return at some point.

Room Tip: We stayed in a studio on the 2nd floor overlooking the garden which was lovely. I know some reviews...

Myself, husband and 2 children stayed here for 11 nights after seeing the reviews on here and were not dissapointed. In fact it is the most friendly, hospitable place I have ever come across. The owners Andreas and Evita are wonderful caring hosts who do everything they can to welcome you and make your stay as relaxed as possible, they work incredibly hard and the standards of cleanliness and maintenance are excellent. The lovely bubbly Anna who works during the day welcomes you with a hug and is a wealth of knowledge should you need directions or car hire or even a restaurant recommendation. We had a one bed apartment which was well furnished and had everything we needed, I requested a garden room after seeing a few comments about road noise at the front of the building and they fulfilled my request. After laying by the pool I realized that actually the road noise wasn't an issue and would not worry about having a front room next time as the apartment is double glazed with air con so at night you wouldn't have the door or windows open anyway.
There is an excellent reliable bus service which stops every 20 mins outside the appt, this was a fantastic bonus as it was cheap to get into the town(1.10 euro) and only took 7-8 mins, we used the supermarket across the road which was brilliant and always well stocked. The road is busy as mentioned before but if you are patient there are plenty of gaps to cross and was no problem for us, I would rather have access to the bus on a main road than be in a quiet road having to taxi everywhere.
We loved Chania and 11 nights was no where near enough time to explore the surrounding area, its really quite beautiful and all the people we met were charming and hospitable. The meals we had in town were all excellent however Andreas is really a super cook and the meals we had at Lefka were delicious- you must try his souvlaki chicken its the best around Chania!
It was one of our best holidays made extra special by the people who run Lefka, we are definitely returning next year and possibly for many more to come- Thank you Andreas, Evita and Anna x

Lefka Apartments was a perfect place. The owners (Andreas and Evita), and the rest of the people who works there were so hospitable, nice, generous and they were always there to help us with everything. The apartments are very clean and comfortable, the swimming pool is great!!! and the location is very good too. We definitely confirmed that the excellent reviews were more than justified!!!!!!!

My family (me, my wife, and two sons aged 3yrs and 10 months) stayed here for 7 nights and we were overwhelmed at the fantastic hospitality shown by Evita, Andreas and Anna. Nothing was too much for our very generous hosts and they made made our stay a relaxed pleasure. The food in the evenings was competitively priced and delicious and our 1 bedroom apartment was cleaned thoroughly each day. The large, clean, well equipped pool kept the kids entertained throughout the day and there is also a decent selection of toys available to keep the kids entertained during evening meals. There are regular buses that stop outside Lefka Apartments for those that wish to pop into the delightful Chania Old Town and there are two well stocked supermarkets over the road for stocking up on provisions. We are already looking forward to returning to Lefka Apartments and experiencing the excellent hospitality of Evita, Andreas and Anna; I know of many 5 Star hotels that could learn hospitality lessons from these very kind people. Thank you

We spent a week here in June. It was the most relaxing holiday we have had in years. The apartments are spotlessly clean and comfortable. Andreas, Evita and Anna really are the most hospitable people in the world and make you feel genuinely welcome. There were many guests there who had stayed several times before which is a recommendation in itself. We had some our best meals in Chania at the pool side snack bar - the food was superb. Take heed if you plan to walk the Samaria Gorge - it is not a walk in the park. We will definitely return again to Lefka.

Me and my wife stayed here for two weeks and had a very nice time , the reason for not giving 5 star is that it was located at a dangourus trafficated road that we needed to cross to go out .and was is need of renting a car to get around adding a 29 EUR perd day to the 50EUR room rate compared to what we could get in the old town for 80EUR.
Anyway happy to stay there as a first timer to Chania.
