Hi all! I'm Michalis and I would like to welcome you to my traditional, unique apartments in beautiful Kriti in Greece! Feel free to contact me for any questions!
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!
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.
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.
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.
