“Brilliant place to stay!!!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Lovely and clean apts,you are always met with a warm welcome by the family that run these apts,nothing is too much for the family to help your holiday run smoothly. They are well situated,just a two minute walk from the beach and the main strip,would recommend these apts to anyone wanting a quiet and hassle free holiday.

Room Tip: any room,ground floor or upper,as there are only two levels,are perfect.

Very nice apartments, very helpful and friendly owner (and family). Only 2 minutes from the beach and the crowded Beach Road, but still quite. Busstop to Heraklion Airport 5minutes away. Was a good choice!

Room Tip: Try to get the seaview apartment!

We have just returned after spending 2 weeks in Stalis staying at Lia Sofia.

These lovely apartments are only a stones throw away from the beach road and all the tavernas and pubs etc but still very quiet.

We stayed in an upper end studio which had a massive balcony and was also very spacious inside. There was a double wardrobe with drawers underneath so no problem for storing clothes and the beds were very comfortable. Lovely bathroom with constant hot water and adequate kitchen if you wished to eat in.

The whole studio was modern and spotlessly clean and air conditioning was available if required There was also free wi-fi.

The manage Giorgios made us feel very welcome as did his father Kostas and nothing was a problem.

Lia Sofia is a wonderful family run business where you are made to feel one of the family and I will definitely be returning.

We come here always for the second year. Nice to see familiar faces. Most guests come here every year, and for good reason. As always, there are excellent service, good hearted attitude of the owners, nice conversation, warm sea in two steps with an excellent beach, excellent food at the nearby restaurants. If you want a relaxing holiday (with family and children or without them) on the coast, you have to go here. Many thanks to the owners with hope to see you again next year!

Room Tip: Lia App 2-3 floor sea wiew, Sofia App 2 floor - big balconies
