Stavros Studio is in a perfect position to enjoy a rural, laid-back atmosphere but without being too remote, as a small mini-store 4 minutes down the country lane services your day-to-day needs while the village of Gerani is only a 12-15 minute walk away.
Stavros is really is blessed with everything most people look for on a relaxing holiday: 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.
Families who have returned again and again say it is for a combination of the sense of seclusion and relaxation it gives them, safety for the children and child-friendliness. Couples who have returned say it is for the sense of space and relaxation in a romantic setting.

Adjoining the beach is a good-sized swimming pool, sun terrace and beach bar, and there are plenty of sun-beds and umbrellas for use by the pool.
Although the pool is shared by the four villas, not everyone staying with us chooses the pool at the same time since the large sandy beach is right next to the pool and is also popular. Situated far enough from the villas that voices can't be heard and with a length almost the size of the width of an Olympic pool, our guests never complain that the pool is too noisy, too busy or too small.
The onsite beach-terrace taverna provides a wide range of Greek, Cretan and international foods, from breakfast and light snacks in the day time (the taverna & bar are open all day), to a full gourmet menu in the evening.
You are offered a range from the simplest to the most lavish of choices, with a choice to mix and match the different cuisines, accompanied by a range of Greek wines, retsina and raki.
We aim to provide our guests with a memorable eating and drinking experience in a relaxed, no-fuss ambience at affordable prices.
Crete is the largest and most southern of all the Greek holiday islands and has an interesting history, busy seaside resorts, pretty villages and a charm and character that will encourage you to explore this island of contrasts. Crete holidays have been popular with the British for many years and offer variety and Greek charm.
Crete lies at the point where the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa meet. It is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean with an area of over 8,000 square kilometres. The island of Crete sits on an east-west axis and a length of nearly 260km, a maximum width of 60kmand a minimum width of only 12km.
Gerani is a village about 9Km from Chania on the west coast of the island of Crete. Gerani holidays are definitely for those looking for a quiet relaxed village with a good quiet beach away from the big crowds. Gerani holiday nights are likely to be spent in the smattering of small relaxed bars and restaurants.
Spice up a Gerani holiday in nearby Platanias, which is a much busier resort with another good beach. Chania, the interesting cosmopolitan historic Venetian capital of west Crete is just 9Km away and connected by regular buses. Here you will find plenty of sophistication and good shopping.
