The Chania Prefecture 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.

"Perfect and quiet"
We loved Stavros and Susie did everything she could to make our stay the best it could be. We had no car and enjoyed chilling in the village, at Mamas place and at the wIndmill taverna. Loved snorkelling in the cove. A really quiet retreat. Just what we were looking for.

"I could not fault this accommodation."
From the start to the end we were made to feel welcome. Suzie is a wonderfully warm caring lady who treats her guests as friends. Her welcome pack (including wine and cake) was a lovely surprise.The apartment was spacious, well equiped and spotlessly clean. Clean linen was provided every few days.
Stavros beach is only a couple of minutes away and the water was warm and clean.
It would be advantageous to have a car if you want to see the sights of Crete.
Stavros has very little in the way of restaurants, the windmill being the best we found - though it has a very limited menu. The two supermarkets provide just about everything you need.
For a totally relaxing away from it all holiday this would be hard to beat.

"Stunning Location, Great atmosphere, Lovely Holiday"
Heard about this place from a friend of a friend who raved about it and it lived up to its hype. A lovely little town/ village set in a picturesque part of Crete, with hills, great beach and blue sea. The beach was about 2 mins walk from the apartment which made life easy and there is an inlet/ natural harbour which provided a lovely place to go swimming.
The apartments are lovely, clean, cool and had a lovely roof top terrace we ate on, with as great view of the local village. The vilage had a couple of really good tavernas where the food was really good, the drinks flowed and the locals were very friendly..all situated within a couple of hundred meteres of each other. Made a couple of trips further afield to Chania which was very nice, especially around the harbour but to be honest we were so relaxed in the bay and walking up into the hills or swimming we didnt really need to leave.

"Location Location Location - Lovely Apartment, Super Beach, Crystal Clear Water"
This is the first time I have ever written a review, about anything, why now, because this was a special moment. My wife and I spent a wonderfully relaxing holiday at Alexis apartments in Stavros. The apartment is situated in a lovely spot close to the beach, tavernas and small supermarkets. Our air conditioned apartment was spacious and clean and provided everything we needed. Only yards from the beach we appreciated the convenience of being able to return to the apartment during the day, for whatever reason...... There are two beaches to choose from, both very different; there is a lovely natural bay with sandy beach and crystal clear shallow water as well as places to buy delicious food and drinks; the other beach is more rugged, the sandy beach gives way to stones and rocks at the waters edge. Getting to Chania for a days sightseeing or for the evening was easy, we took the bus (20 to 30 minute), you can buy tickets and get bus times from the eats place on the square in front of the beach. Returning we usually took a taxi, they are reasonably priced providing you check the meter is on. Whether young or old, if what you seek is a lovely spot for a relaxing holiday then I can highly recommend Alexis apartments.

"Perfection is quite a claim, but as far as we're concerned, this is it."
Stavros isn't for everybody, and if it's vibrant night life and discotheques you want, forget it. However, if you want peace, world-class beaches, unbelievably beautiful scenery, and congenial company, then it will suit you down to the ground. Alexis apartments are perfectly situated to take full advantage of all that Stavros has to offer in terms of beaches and scenery, and there are two supermarkets a ten minute walk away which sell everything necessary for all self-catering needs. We've been coming to Alexis apartments for several years now and wouldn't stay anywhere else; we don't like to take risks with our precious holidays and apart from their perfect location, the apartments provide everything we need in terms of comfort and convenience. An added bonus is that the owners of this family-run business are extremely welcoming and friendly, and always on hand to help or advise. We will certainly continue to stay at Alexis apartments as often as we possibly can and would recommend it to anyone, singles couples or families.
