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.

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 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.
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.

"Excellent, as simple as that!"
Having never been to Crete before i was unsure what to expect, but what a fabulous relaxing holiday. Two stunning beaches, one literally a minute from the apartment, quiet, friendly and welcoming. Alexis Apartments are just the ticket, spotlessly clean on arrival, air con included in the very reasonable prices, and more than adequately equipped for a peaceful, relaxing stay. Highly recommended and given the opportunity i will definitely be staying there again. The hosts leave you to enjoy your stay but are there if you need advice. Great Holiday.

"Good place to stay"
A very good place to stay. Near the beach,15 minutes from the beach and near 3 or 4 tavernas all serving decent food.
The apartments were very clean with an excellent working shower and the owner of the apartments is very helpful and cannot do enough for you.
There are several other beaches in the vicinity but Stavros beach is ideal for children. All the tavernas served good food but we preferred the Sunset taverna on the beach. It serves Greek ,Arabic and French food all excellent and very tasty.
Another good point is the apartments are about 15 minutes from Chania and a good base to see eastern Crete.

"The most relaxing place on earth!"
This is our second stay at Alexis apartments and we will certainly stay again.
The apartments are well furnished clean and comfortable. A definite plus is the air conditioning - no extra charge, and the British style drains.
Stavros is not for those seeking night life but there are a number of tavernas serving simple food well cooked.
I am a none swimmer but the water is so clear and warm that I thoroughly enjoyed paddling around in the shallows.
I would recommend this most highly.

"Perfect for a relaxing quiet holiday! Would stay again."
Alexis Apartments are the perfect choice for a mega-relaxing holiday in the quiet village of Stavros. If you need to get away from busy city life then this is it - 60s walk from one beach, 5min walk from another and two mini marts are a short walk away too. There is a regular bus to Chania and the taxi from the airport is around €25.
The flats are clean and spacious, with air con which you'll definitely need over the summer. The balcony is great for meals outside and the kitchen areas are basic but fine for whipping up a quick meal.
Overall, a great stay and would come back.

"Lovely quiet apartment in peaceful resort."
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.
