Property type apartment


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 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 apartment (44 sq.m.) is a two-room apartment which was renovated in 2011. It has a modern well-equipped kitchen with lively colors and a sofa bed for two people. A corridor takes you to the bedroom and next to it there is a bathroom with shower cabin. In front of the apartment there is a balcony with view to the swimming pool and the bar-restaurant. Another balcony at the back with view to the olive and banana trees gives visitors the opportunity to relax and rest.

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.

Note: Elea is the translation of the english word olive tree in greek language.

Perfect for families with young children

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere secluded and peaceful, though within walking distance of the beach and a variety of restaurants, and which would have families with young children for our two kids (7 and 10) to make friends with. We were also keen for there to be a mix of nationalities, so it wasn't too 'Brits abroad'.

We were really pleased to find it ticked all our boxes. The apartments were clean and had ample space (ours had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms), a free safe and effective air conditioning. We also had a front and rear balcony (though I'm not sure all had two), with table, chairs and parasol. The pool was great and, though we went in the peak season (mid-August), there was never more than a small handful of people around it and there were always lots of spare sunbeds.

The beaches are less than 10 mins walk away, there are two supermarkets within a few minutes walk and the buses run every 15 minutes or so to the centre of Chania, which takes around 20 minutes. The bar at the apartments mercifully played no music, and the meals were simple but freshly made and tasty. Michalis and his family were really friendly, though they leave you in peace to enjoy your stay, and I would definitely recommend Elea Apartments (several of the people we met were planning to come back, or had stayed before, which is surely a good barometer of satisfaction). Thanks Michalis, George etc!

A gem of a place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were sad to leave this excellent holiday facility. The owners were always present on site and were very welcoming and friendly, always ready to help and answer any questions. We would recommend trying the food served in the bar, in our opinion it was was equal to, if not better than, that served in local tavernas. They were able to arrange taxis for us to and from the airport and motorbike and car hire delivered to the door! There are lots of beaches nearby and the nearby city of Xania is well worth a visit or two.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at the ELEA apartments. The apartments are lovely and relaxing, quiet and clean. The pool was wonderful.

There is only a short walk to four beautiful beaches and nice tavernas to eat in the evenings. The regular bus to Chania town was cheap and quick and lots to see and do there.

The short taxi ride from the Chania airport was fine and the owners organised this all for us. There was a supermarket close by to buy food and the bar at the apartment was also very nice.

Thoroughly recommended for a relaxing break in lovely Crete.

Comfortable property with pool outside Chania.

  • 5 of 5

This property is outside of Chania and requires the use of public transportation to accesses Chania. The public transportation was easily accessed and ran on a regular schedule. The bus that is close to the property not only runs into the central area of Chania but also passes the bus station for buses that travel all over the island of Crete. We recommend that you stop in at the tourist travel information office (the one near the courthouse) to get bus schedules, instructions about how to read the schedule, current detailed maps, and other helpful hints. We found the travel information office invaluable to understanding Chania and other tourist areas. The property itself was very clean and had many amenities that we did not use. For instance, they have a bar, snack bar, and pool which we never accessed. I think the word apartment is a good description of this property though we used it more like a hotel. There were several families with multiple children staying here. I think this would be a great space for families as the children have plenty of room to run about and play. As two women traveling without children we found that the space accommodated us as well as families with children very comfortable. In other words, even with children playing we were not disturbed or disrupted by them. The hosts for this property were very helpful and accommodating. They called the bus information line to get us updated information about the schedule and arranged for taxi transportation and gave us helpful directions about getting into town. We spent all of our time in Chania and hiking the Imbros Gorge so we did not visit the local beaches that are within walking distance of this property. There were also several restaurants in this area but we did not have a chance to access them given the short amount of time we spent here. One of the great things about the location of this property is the access to grocery stores and an organic food store.

The apartment was lovely, very clean and equipped of the necessary to have a comfortable staying. The owners are very kind and willing to help and give suggestion. The position is perfect : You have the sea at about 500 mt and during night, if you sleep with open windows you can hear the sound of the waves . Fantastic!!!!

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.
