Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Chania area - Pelagos Holidays Apartments

Apartment on two levels,1 bedroom, sea view, (2~4 persons)

Pelagos holidays apartment has an extraordinary view over the Cretan Sea and the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside complements perfectly the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Platanias, centre of summer night life both for visitors and for residents of Chania.

A modern complex of two-level apartments, with verandas & balconies oriented towards the Cretan Sea, the Pelagos holiday apartment has been respectfully constructed to blend with the unique beauty of the Platanias rock and the traditional architecture of the area. The discreet furniture, the comfortable arrangement of room and the hospitality offered will make your stay a sheer pleasure.

How far we are?: From the apartments, a walk of less than 15min (500 m.) will take you to the sandy beach with clear blue waters (Blue Flag award) or else to the shops and the centre of Platanias.

Platanias is 12 km away from Chania (old Venetian port) and 32 km away from the airport or 19 km from the port of Souda, making Pelagos Holidays apartments an excellent starting point for visiting the island’s natural beauties as well as its archaeological treasures.

Why Platanias?: Traditionally, the economy of Platanias was based in agriculture but during the last twenty years has turned increasingly to tourism.

The majority of the visitors are Scandinavians, who have introduced a pleasant, youthful as well as a family type of entertainment.

There are plenty of shops, services and activities in the village and in the wider area, so there is no chance to get bored.

Archaeological sites, mountain villages, monasteries and cultural events in West Crete, are easily accesses from Pelagos holidays apartment.

Why Pelagos Holidays?: Pelagos Holidays offer you tranquility with splendid view. A small pleasant walk can bring you to the heart of day and night activity. It is a relaxing and cosy place.

What makes this villa unique

The location of Pelagos is perfect, with beautiful relaxing view. It is also close to everything but at the same far enough from the noise and hassle.

I love most the serene afternoon time just before the sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent 2 weeks here with our 3 young children. I had already read really good reviews on the internet. Marianne and Manolis are really wonderful people. The apartments were spotless and it really felt like being at home. The kids loved staying there and loved spending time in the swimming pool which most of the times was empty. I cannot find any faults at all with Pelagos and we will definitely go back as soon as we can. Crete is a marvellous island with so many places to see. The people are friendly and welcoming. In the 2 weeks we spent there we forgot about looking at the time and really enjoyed ourselves.

Wunderbar entspannter Urlaub bei netten Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderbar entspannte Urlaubswochen in den Pelagos Holiday Apartments verlebt. Unser Apartment entsprach genau der Beschreibung und den Fotos, es war hochwertig und mit Bedacht eingerichtet und sehr, sehr sauber. Viele liebevolle Details im Apartment (leckeres Olivenöl, Blumen, schöne Badartikel) und der hotelähnliche Service machen das Pelagos zu etwas Besonderem. Wunderbar ist natürlich auch der tolle Ausblick auf das Meer von der Terrasse und dem Balkon - und die Ruhe, die man hier hat, obwohl man nur ca. 5. Minuten zum sehr lebendigen, touristischen Ort Platanias zu laufen hat. In Platanias gibt es viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und etliche Restaurants - Marianne gibt gerne Tipps, wo man am besten Essen kann. Wir haben Platanias wegen der guten Ausgangslage gewählt, man kann von hier den schönen Westen Kretas - auch ohne Auto - sehr gut erkunden, und wegen der Nähe zur tollen Hafenstadt Chania, die uns immer wieder begeistert.

Die Atmosphäre in den Pelagos Holiday Apartments ist ruhig, entspannt und familiär; wir haben uns hier vom ersten Moment an wie zu Hause gefühlt. Marianne und Manolis sind wirklich tolle, herzliche Gastgeber. Marianne kümmert sich sehr aufmerksam um ihre Gäste (ohne das es jemals zu viel wäre) und hält alles super in Schuss; sie hat immer ein Lächeln auf den Lippen und ist für Tipps jederzeit ansprechbar. Rundum war es für uns der perfekte Urlaub und wir empfehlen diese kleine Anlage gerne an Freunde weiter. Wenn wir wieder einmal nach Platanias kommen, ist das Pelagos unsere erste Wahl.

Many thanks to Marianne and Manolis for your great hospitality and helpfulness! We really enjoyed our stay in your wonderful apartment and hope, that we can come back some day.

Gepflegte Anlage mit Blick aufs Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 5 Tage Anfang Mai in dieser schönen Anlage zu Gast. Leider hat uns die Sonne ein bisschen im Stich gelassen, aber zum Glück gab es dicke Bettdecken in den Schränken. Wir hatten das erste Appartement Nr. 102. Dort kann man morgens in der Sonne frühstücken, danach verschwindet sie hinter dem Haus. Das Appartement war sehr gepflegt und wurde sehr gründlich geputzt. Da die Anlage etwas erhöht über dem Ort liegt, ist es dort sehr ruhig und friedlich. Marianne ist sehr hilfsbereit und kann jede Menge Tipps für Ausflüge oder Restaurants geben.

Einzig die Anfahrt von Heraklion war im Dunkeln und bei Starkregen ziemlich anstrengend und es war nicht ganz leicht, das Haus zu finden. Ich würde dort wieder Urlaub machen.

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We where so amazed of Pelagos! It is the perfect place to spend a vacation!

Absolutely excellent service from Marianne - always there, always so helpful giving us many good tips (about everything from where to rent a car til places to go to etc etc), the cleaning was spotless and her family was very nice!

We thought it was the perfect mix of a hotel and an apartment since you get both your own (well equipped) kitchen as well the cleaning service.

The apartments are situated up on a height which gives you a fantastic view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. We spent many of our evenings on the pateo enjoying the view.

The apartments are really well maintained and well kept by Marianne and her husband. You can really feel that they care for their place. And you can also see that the apartments are carefully built and tastefully designed. It was really worth the cost.

We hired a car and went to a lot of fabuolous places around Crete, but Platanias was also very nice.

We loved this place and we highly recommend it!

Es war super!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu zweit zehn Tage Urlaub in den Pelagos Appt. Gemacht. Die Ferienhäuser sind sehr geschmackvoll und hochwertig eingerichtet. Wir haben jeden Morgen in der Sonne mit Meerblick frühstücken können nach einem erfrischenden Bad im Meer mit anschließendem Stop beim Bäcker. Im Ort sind zahlreiche Lebensmittelgeschäfte, die für die Selbstversorgung alles bieten. Marianne ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin, die die Anlage perfekt in Schuss hält. Marianne, wir kommen definitiv wieder.
