About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

ELEA is located at Makris Tichos, one of the most beautiful areas of Chania, only 4km far from the town. The first characteristics that gain visitors are the tasty decoration and the feeling of homely care. The four most beautiful beaches of Chania are only 400m away. Except for the beaches, there is a beautiful swimming pool that can cool guests during hot summer days.

The house (75 sq.m.) which was renovated in 2011 has a big modern and well-equipped kitchen with lively colors, big cupboards and a sofa bed for one person. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with bathtub and one with shower cabin. There is a big balcony with great view to the swimming pool and the bar-restaurant which is surrounded by olive and banana trees.

In the area there are two big super-markets and several restaurants (300m). There is well-organized transportation to the town (every 10 minutes) and the bus stop is only 300m away. We have created a peaceful place for relaxation and calmness and we are waiting for you. It's a home away from home.

Beautiful, relaxing place. Perfect location close to beach, park, restaurants and shops.

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful two weeks at Elea Apartments with my family. Apartments were very spacious and clean. My two girls 7 and 5 loved the garden and pool. Beach and park are just 5 mins away with woodland walks to three other beaches. Good bus route to Chania where you can easily spend a day or two walking around the old town and harbour. Owners and staff very helpful with information and will provide delicious home cooked food. Would definitely like to return again next year.

Fantastic Elea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in July, Elea was everything it promised. The owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful in every way. Very child friendly pool and idyllic beaches nearby. Plenty of local restaurants but Chania harbour is a must for evening meals and a walk.

Tout d'abord: c'est la première fois que je mets un commentaire pour exprimer ma satisfaction mais là il le mérite vraiment. Endroit parfait, nous étions avec mon fils de 7 ans. L'endroit est très bien entretenu, propre et surtout une gentillesse et disponibilité de Gorges et Irini. La délicatesse d'Irini, la piscine avec des ballons, matelas gonflable....En plus, la crique à 2 minutes de là avec de l'ombre. Chania centre ville proche. Elle réserve pour vous des excursions "Balos" par exemple et vous donne des noms de restaurant ou la cuisine crétoise est bonne. Un endroit idéal pour des vacances merveilleuses.

Juste un grand merci à vous et à bientôt.

Very comfortable and great pool

  • 5 of 5

ELEA is a charming, comfortable and quiet destination for a relaxing holiday in beautiful Crete. It consists of 16 or so apartments surrounding a good-sized pool, which is fringed by grass and shaded by olive trees.

The apartments are bright and well-equipped, with a fantastic fridge (so helpful in July weather!) as well as 2-ring hob, toaster, kettle and microwave. My family of 3 adults and 2 kids had one of the larger 3 room units (2 separate bedrooms and a living room) which was very comfortable and had a large balcony. Only the main bedroom had air-conditioning though. The apartments are serviced every three days as promised by the efficient and friendly cleaning staff.

The location is great, in a quiet area about 4km west of Chania. There are 3 smallish but very good beaches nearby (10 mins walk) - all are sandy and very sheltered for excellent swimming with life guards in attendance. No water sports available though - if that's your thing you'll need to travel to one of the larger beaches a few Km away.

ELEA is a family-run business and the staff are all extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. They really helped to make our stay as good as it could be. We'll definitely be going back next year!

Lovely spacious apartment in good location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely friendly place. Great location - near the town and walking distance to beaches. Apartments were really spacious. We used the pool a lot as it was hot!

Mikhalis and Irene(not sure of spelling) were very friendly. Only negative was that our apartment was not cleaned throughout the three days we were there - I'm sorry I didn't complain about this but I didn't.

The westernmost side of Crete, Chania is a wonderful place for vacations. The Town is a romantic place to stroll around, with Medieval architecture, elegant mansions and a wonderful Venetian port, the most famous spot of the town. In close distance to Chania Town, there are many wonderful beaches. However, you should not also miss excursions around the region to discover the fabulous spots of Chania: Balos, Elafonissi, Paleochora, Sfakia, Falassarna and Samaria Gorge. All beaches have crystal water and each one offers a unique experience, from the most tourist to the most secluded beach. The natural beauty of the area is breathtaking.
