Pavlakis Beach Studio/Apt. 2
House | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Pavlakis Beach, Stalos, Crete
This small oasis of 3 apartments and 6 studios on the beach at Stalos, share a swimming pool overlooking the sea as well as a little sheltered garden dotted with patio furniture and sun beds in the shade of feathery tamarisk trees. The apartments belong to Antonis, one of Crete's favourite sons and renowned for his kindness and hospitality to all, including for more than 20 years, a loyal following of discerning holidaymakers who will stay nowhere else in Crete.
Antonis has been a good friend for more years than we care to remember and we have shared numerous cups of excellent filtered coffee in the apartments little reception or mini-bar, where guests and friends are always warmly welcomed .
Like many Cretans Antonis philosophy is that in a warm and sunny climate you don't necessarily need a huge amount of living space but you do need a decent terrace with good sea views, some shady trees and as many mod cons as you can squeeze in.
When you first arrive at your studio or apartment you will find bottles of local wine and olive oil with Antonis compliments which you will be told to re-filled whenever your supply gets low. Any time you are passing the reception or the little mini-bar outside, you're always welcome to have a freshly filtered coffee, a soft drink or perhaps an ouzo with a delicious local pastry. It's all entirely gratis, whatever the time of day or night and as Antonis is fond of saying, you must treat his house as your home.
Finally, if you happen to be eating at one of the numerous local tavernas or even in Chania, don't be surprised if a bottle of wine magically appears on your table as more likely than not, Antonis has spotted you and had a quiet word with the waiter.

The Crete region
Still relatively refreshingly authentic our old favorite West Crete & Chania just waits to be explored. Here, the magnificent White Mountains bestride the landscape and melted snow from their high slopes waters the fertile coastal plains, where orange, lemon and olive groves flourish and superb fruit and vegetables of every description grow in amazing profusion.This part also boasts some of the island`s best beaches, especially the coast west which is one long 15km stretch of sandy beach broken by rocky outcrops and bustling villages with numerous waterside tavernas, virtually untouched by time or tourism.
7 km west of Chania, the village of Lower Stalos fringes a long, sandy beach with the island of Theodorou, said to be a petrified sea monster, rising from the sea just a short distance off shore. There are numerous small pensions and apartments as well as half a dozen convenient little mini-markets and an excellent little patisserie, selling delicious fresh baguettes and croissants. There are also a number of waterside tavernas with shady terraces overlooking the sea and teenagers can chill out at one of the atmospheric palm thatched beach bars. 1km inland the small village of Upper Stalos nestles serenely on the hillside amidst a patchwork of vineyards and olive groves.
Here you will find a slower pace of life as well as a couple of the best local tavernas in the area, both certainly worth a visit or two.
