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.

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

“ELEA 3” - Cozy House with Swimming Pool Near the Sea
average rating of 4.0 based on 6 reviews

Relaxing, poolside accommodation set in an idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

Elea apartments are just wonderful! They are fully equipped for a relaxing, self catering holiday and are situated in an idyllic setting. Our 3 children, who are all teenagers, really enjoyed playing in the pool. The apartment was cleaned twice a week (by a lovely lady) which was a nice touch. The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful and we're always on hand if you ever needed anything.

The four beaches were beautiful and the sea was amazingly warm. Chania, which is a Venetian port, is definitely worth a visit, or two!

We loved our holiday in Crete and would definitely return. We'd highly recommend these apartments.

Nice apartment, nice place in Chania

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay at Elea. The apartment is wide and comfortable. The neighborhood is calm and a little walk brings you to the sand beach. The swimming pool is perfect for children. We appreciated the available services. It's perfect for people traveling without too much luggage.

The owners welcomes you very well. They gave us good tips for restaurants (not touristic ones) and nice things to do in Chania.

What to say more ... We loved Creta.

Petit complexe au calme, dans la verdure, à 5 mn à pied d'une plage de sable fin. Belle piscine.

  • 4 of 5

Notre appartement était situé au 1° étage d'une des villas, avec 2 grands balcons, dont un donnant sur un jardin luxuriant. Nous étions 2 couples d'amis et avons particulièrement apprécié que chaque chambre ait sa salle de bains. Les locataires ont en général respecté la tranquillité des autres vacanciers.

Nous avons reçu un très bon accueil du personnel et recommandons cet hébergement très bien situé pour visiter La Canée (à quelques minutes en voiture), la presqu'île d'Akrotiri, les belles plages et gorges de l'ouest de la Crète.

Très bon rapport qualité prix

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un bon séjour. Accueil agréable et serviable. Belle piscine. Près de la mer. Juste deux remarques: il pourrait y avoir un peu plus de vaisselle notamment des bols. Il n'y a pas de machine à laver dans la maison même si possibilité de donner sac de linge à laver moyennant 5€. Bonne adresse que nous recommandons.

avis mitigé

  • 3 of 5

Notre avis est assez mitigé concernant cette location. L’appartement ainsi que le site (piscine, bar..) sont propres, et bien tenus. Les propriétaires sont sympathiques et de bon conseils pour visiter les alentours. Mais la location ne correspondait pas à l’annonce, d’où une certaine déception.

L’annonce parle d’une maison, c’était un appartement.

Les photos de l’appartement sur le site internet ne correspondaient pas à celui que nous avons eu.

La « maison » devait être climatisée, en fait, une seule chambre l’était.

Il devait être équipé d’un lave linge, ce n’était pas le cas.

Et, petit détail, nous avons dû acheter du liquide vaisselle, sel poivre, huile d’olive, sopalin… pour une location d’appartement, ce serait bien d’avoir un peu de tout ça à l’arrivée !

Pour résumer, c’est un lieu agréable, mais pensez à demander des précisions sur l’appartement !

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.
