Space 473 sq. ft.
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.

Elea apartments

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment, clean & tidy. Not to easy to find but found it eventually using Google maps. Nice secluded spot & friendly owner & staff, food & drinks on site but bar shuts around 9pm. Nice child friendly pool. Nice beach not too far away but if your not good with walking or the heat, hire a car or something. Altogether a nice stay & nice people.

Lovely place, great owners, had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment and facilities. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and it was good to have a bar available. They were also on hand to answer questions about local attractions and transport etc. The pool was a decent size and all the facilities in the block were as we needed. In the apartment, we had air con, fridge freezer, utensils, kettle etc. All very clean and modern. The bed was comfy and we had a little balcony and also lots of chairs to sit out on. Can't fault this place (except wifi was not great in the apartment itself) but the rest of the block was fine and in bar/pool etc it worked fine. The local connections are good (short walk to a lovely beach with 3 euro sunbeds, a few tavernas etc) and bus 21 a short walk away and didn't take long to get into Old Town. We would definitely recommend it and return! Basically, if you like to stay by the pool or visit the beach by day and then venture into town by night, this is the perfect place!

Love that place !

  • 5 of 5

Love that place, so relaxing . Especially there were lots of kids around so my child was so busy making new friends. There were friendly cats there, also the owners of that place were so good and always responded to our requests.. I kept going back to their pub/cafe for their delicious greek salads, etc... The pool was lovely.

The place is very clean and very safe for kids. Kid-friendly place.

I would recommend that place for families ! Near to the beach, Near Beautiful Chania and plenty of restaurants... Nothing to say negative about that place. :-)

Very nice place and people

The apartments are located around a swimming pool which is surrounded by olive trees and other plants. The Patsoumadakis family is very friendly and helpful. The property is clean and gets cleaned every three days.

A nice place

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 really good days at ELEA. Owners are really kind, welcoming and gave us good advice concerning things to do and see in and around Hania.This hotel is located around 2-3 km from Hania downtown and is a good place to be if you want a calm place with honnest room rates. Our apartment was really clean, the complex offers a pleasant secured swimming pool, beatiful Olive trees and a bar with a terrace where you can have a drink, breakfast, lunch or dinner (George's tzatziki is pretty good...).

We really recommand this place.

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.
