About Lefteris Pardalakis
With 20 years' experience offering holiday accommodation on the island of Crete, we pride ourselves on understanding the diversity of holiday makers' dreams. Owners: The Pardalakis FamilyAs well as offering holidays independently, we work closely with Meon Travel, Sovereign Holidays and Bravo Tours, enabling us to offer greater flexibility in flights and holiday bookings to suit the very varied needs of our different guests. We come from a long line of olive farmers, and more recently we started orange farming in addition to olives. Our villas stand on what were olive farming lands. Despina (mum) is chef and Stavros (dad) is sous-chef in our restaurant on Gerani beach. Lefteris, Charoula and Stelios are our grown-up children who all lend a hand in the restaurant and bar. Gabriel is our youngest family member: our 8-year-old grandchild. We all speak English, except Stavros who just pretends to. The people of Crete are famous for their hospitality and warmth. Our guests' feedback reflects the same about our family because we welcome all our guests with a general warmth and friendliness. Being entirely family-run, the atmosphere is welcoming, and it is reassuring to know that there is always one of the family on hand to turn to in case of any problems. We live not far from the villas as well as running the restaurant in Gerani, so we can help out with car hire, taxis, medical problems and day-to-day local information.
Why Lefteris Pardalakis chose Gerani
Long quiet beach, large clean pool, a natural setting far from mass tourism, a quiet romantic beach-terrace taverna, and yet within easy access of a nearby village.

Terry and family
Just a quick message to say how much we enjoyed our holiday this year. Your accommodation, care and delicious food made for a really relaxing time. With the fantastic weather it couldn't have been much better, just another week would have been great! Hope to see you again next year.
We will be back!
A treasure of a place. Clean basic but comfortable apartment just 2 mins away from private swimming pool , bar/restaurant and the beach. This is a small family run business - all the food here is home cooked and fresh and our hostess Haroula was warm and attentive. We will be back - perfect place to chill out and recharge your batteries.
Small, simple, well ran apartments. Not comical, maybe a bit spartan for some, but it was perfect for us. Very clean, the apartment was cleaned daily and the bed was really comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious. The family and staff were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend it and would love to return in the future.
good clean property
very friendly and helpful a great choice of food
A Hidden Gem
One of the most enjoyable and relaxing holidays I have ever been on. The location is fantastic, the people are warm and friendly, the home cooked food is amazing. I cant fault it, we really hope to make a return visit.
Great holiday even at end of season it was still open and operational. Very quiet area on the beach.
There are two mini stores only a few minutes stroll away from Stavros Villa Studios, and we have our own and cafe/restaurant where mineral water, soft and alcoholic drinks can be bought at any time. The taverna (café and restaurant) is open all day until 11pm. You can hire mountain bikes and mopeds locally. Down the same lane are one or two other tavernas.
For older children and adults, there is plenty of nature around the studios – long walks in the immediate area take you through bamboo plantations, olive and orange groves, and of course the shoreline. The local bus will take you to Platanias, a nearby small town, busy in the summer with shops of interest to tourists (arts, crafts and souvenirs), as well as cafes, restaurants, small clothes shops and a supermarket where you can mix and shop with the locals.
