I went to Stavros in Crete to write and relax and it was the perfect place for both. Alexis Apartments are literally seconds from the beach and cater for all your needs. I enjoyed having breakfast on my veranda and lunch/dinner in one of the many restaurants minutes away - although I also loved having the option of cooking for...

The main reason I am giving this place 5 stars is for the helpfulness of the owner's mum, Susie. My wife managed to step on a needle on the beach (apparently a very rare occurrence, don't let it put you off!) on the day we arrived, and Susie drove us to hospital (45 min away), talked to the doctors for...

About the neighbourhood
Laze on a white sandy beach. When it comes to white sandy beaches, you are spoilt for choice. Here are our favourites in the area. Stavros beach. With the exquisite Stavros beach right outside the apartments, you could easily spend your whole holiday splashing in the clear blue sea, snorkelling and sunbathing. This picturesque spot was the backdrop of the final dance scene in Zorba the Greek, and with its breathtaking beauty, it’s easy to understand why. Nature lovers should watch out for the eagles soaring over the coastal mountain. Marathi beach - another beautiful sandy beach, this time set against the backdrop of the white mountains and Souda bay.
Getting around
There is a bus service five times a day and going to Chania town and back. The bus stop is 1 minute from our apartments. From Chania you have access to bus routes going to many key places in Western and Eastern Crete.

You can also rent a car from very near us, if you didn't wish to from the airport. You can find them listed under Horafakia Cars and they deliver to the apartments and pick up from the airport on exit.

Nearby Souda bay has ferries which go to Athens and back regularly during the day.

Getting to us.
There is 24-hour car hire at Chania airport or you can get a bus or taxi here. We are only a 20-minute drive away. We are situated just behind Mamas place on the beachfront here in Stavros, Akrotiri.

We recommend hiring a car so you can explore the area and rest of Crete in your own time but it is not necessary ─ there is a coach that comes five times a day to the bay and onward to Chania town where there are many connections.
