About the home
Do you want to completely get away from City life? Alexis Apartments is ideal relaxation for families and couples. Simply 60 second walk from the beach. Quiet with the natural beauty of a mountain and a secluded bay with clear blue waters you can swim across to the mountain every day.
The bay is naturally created to have very shallow waters to one side of the crescent which is greatly enjoyed by people of all ages including toddlers, children and non-swimmers alike. Enjoy the fact you can walk in your towel with your beach bags from apartment to sea in a matter of seconds and back again for a cheap lunch. Unwind in the evenings at one of the taverna's or simply cook for yourself and sit on the private terrace in the warm evening sun watching the stars appear above the mountain. Enjoy the original panorama once filmed for 60's feature film, Zorba The Greek.
The property is a one bedroom apartment, sleeps 3/4 (2 in 1 bedroom and 2 possible with sofa bed). Features Lounge, Dining Room and Kitchette. Balcony or terrace area with sea and mountain views for meals, drinks and sun lounging.

The Crete region
Alexis Apartments are in the picturesque seaside village of Stavros. Here you can do as much or as little as you want. Hit the beach, soak up the sun, eat, drink, snorkel, fish, walk up mountains, hike down gorges, visit ancient ruins and magnificent monasteries, or take trip to Chania and beyond. Your Cretan adventure starts as soon as you arrive.
The Chania / Stavros area
Laze on a white sandy beach
When it comes to white sandy beaches, you are spoilt for choice. Here are our favourites in the area.
With the exquisite Stavros beach right outside the apartments, you could easily spend your whole holiday splashing in the clear blue sea, snorkelling and sunbathing. This picturesque spot was the backdrop of the final dance scene in Zorba the Greek, and with its breathtaking beauty, it’s easy to understand why. Nature lovers should watch out for the eagles soaring over the coastal mountain.
Another beautiful sandy beach, this time set against the backdrop of the white mountains and Souda bay. Marathi beach is about a 15-minute drive from Stavros on the south coast of the Akrotiri peninsula. The fish restaurant next to the beach is recommended. Just round the corner from Marathi is Loutraki beach, which is one of the few beaches in the area to offer sea sports.
Tersanas is just a few kilometres away from Stavros and offers another excellent sandy beach with a lovely bar overlooking the sea. Good for nights out as well as day trips.

We had a very enjoyable week at the Alexis Apartments. Our apartment was very clean and tidy with nicely coordinating furnishings. The triple windows with integrated blinds and insect screens were very useful as was the air conditioning with the unusual October heat. The welcoming cake and drink etc awaiting us was a very nice touch. A microwave or toaster would have been useful for breakfast and small meals, although we ate out for our main meals.
The lovely beach is very close by and the enclosed bay ideal for swimming. October is very much the end of season, with cafes starting to close up and not many people around, but it was lovely and peaceful. It made a good base for exploring the west of the island, although you always have to drive back over the peninsula first.
Thank you Susie and Alexis for your hospitality.
