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.

Lovely but smaller than appears

  • 4 of 5

Friendly, helpful staff. Apartment smaller than appears in pictures but had everything needed. Quiet when we went (October) but probably very busy in high season. Easy 10 min walk to beach or bus to Chania. Easy 30 min coastal walk to Chania.

Absolute brilliant holiday and fully recommendable accommodation - everything you need nearby

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our holiday in the Elea apartment in mid-August. It was a straight forward booking via Owners-Direct and George replied really quickly to my many questions. Very friendly and helpful owners, who also cooked delicious food in the little restaurant. The apartment was spacious and equipped with everything you needed. There is a tea towel provided, but I brought a few more for the two weeks we were there. If you wanted your apartment cleaning incl. changing towels, you needed to pay EUR 10, which was fine. Our daughter loved the pool and many cats, which made her holiday. She had enough other children to play with from various countries. The compound was really quiet and there were always enough sunbeds available. We thought we needed a car, but it wasn’t really necessary. George was so kind to book us a taxi for EUR 30 from Chania airport, which worked out really well and also arranged a taxi to go to Limonoupolis waterpark (15 min. drive). It was really easy and cheap to take the bus to Chania. Best to buy the return tickets at the little booth at the bus station in Chania (cheaper than in the bus). There are 4 lovely beaches in ca. 10 min. (not rushing) walking distance. The one far left is shallow, another good for snorkeling and the cheapest sunbeds were on the right beach. Big supermarkets (Lidle and Synka) are nearby (ca. 6 min.) and they have everything you need.

Superb location - excellent helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

The Owners of Elea have created a magical location here set within an old olive grove. The trees provide for natural shading yet there is plenty of space for children to run and play on the well kept lawns. The whole site is gated and the swimming pool protected by a glazed barrier which makes everything extremely safe for children.

Michalis and Irina, the Owners, could not be more friendly and helpful to their visitors and the small bar/restaurant serves authentic Cretan food using natural ingredients. If you prefer to prepare food in the apartments yourself - that is easy - with a great foodstore called 'Inka' with fresh local produce a short walk away. Opposite 'Inka' is a Lidl so shopping is very easy.

The apartments themselves are kept spotless and are cleaned every three days with fresh linen, towels etc.

The local beach is in a stunning setting and is again complemented by trees providing shade for those who want it. The beach is also child friendly with a gentle sloping sea bed. The beach is award winning and is protected by a life guard and kept very clean.

If you want a safe, peaceful holiday in a tranquil setting - then this is the place for you! The only problem with Elea is actually getting booked in! It was set up 14 years ago, and they get a lot of returning holidaymakers every year. I suppose that in itself tells you all you need to know!

Lovely relaxing stay in Elea apartments

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in April and found the apartments clean, comfortable and quiet. The pool area and gardens were well kept and lovely for relaxing and pool very clean. It wasn't very busy when we were there, so I don't know what it is like in the summer season.

The location is great, walking distance to good beaches, walks, supermarket, tavernas etc. We had a car so it only took about 10 mins to drive to Chania for a shopping/eating.

We ate at the Elea taverna a couple of times and had very tasty food, great to have the cafe if you don't feel like going outside and our hosts, George and Erene were friendly and welcoming.

One improvement to our apartment I would suggest is the bathroom needs updating as it was quite 'leaky'. There appeared to be a leak underneath the sink and the shower screen and shower head could do with replacing as they also leaked, so we had to keep mopping the floor.

We loved Crete and would definitely consider going back to Elea.

Excellent value for money, quiet, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We are an elderly, but spry couple. This apartment suited us down to the ground. It had everything we needed. Good, quiet, peaceful bedroom, well equipped kitchen and sitting areas. We could also sit and eat outside. There were several young couples with small kids round the swimming pool but they were no problem. The apartment was clean, and sheets changed. Good water supply. We reckoned it was very good value for money. It would be advisable to have your own transport (we hired bikes and a car), but there are supermarkets and an excellent beach within easy walking distance. We would recommend this to anyone.

Excellent accommodation,service and food.

  • 5 of 5

This year we were very lucky to choose one of the best hotels in Chania ,the Elea hotel.

We were very satisfied because the hotel was even better than the descriptions and the critics we had read.

Our rooms were very clean and comfortable.

The hotel consists of big areas of relaxing,a big and clean swimming pool,.We had a lot of places to amuse ourseither in the big and clean swimming pool or in the bar area where we found any drinks we wanted ...

Our breakfast was excellent snd the local food they prepared for lunch was of very good quality and taste.

What made our holidays even more pleasant and satisfying was the service and the friendliness of the staff.The owners of the hotel worked non stop always with a smile and always willing to cover all our needs.We left the hotel promising to ourselves that next year we will visit the same hotel again .I want to express my great pleasure and thanks to the owners for making our holidays unique.

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.
