The space

Village : Bali is a colourful and friendly seaside resort surrounded by hilly terrain. In this place the blue of the sky and the light blue of the sea are linked in a beautiful combination. It is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations of Crete.

For those wanting to explore the island there are a number of car hire outlets and good public bus connections to Rethymno (30km) and Heraklio. (approx 50km. Jeep safari trips may take you off the beaten track to mountain villages and beautiful beaches
Studio : Valentino apartments and studios, occupy an elevated, uphill position which affords good views. These pleasant studios and apartments are at a quiet spot, 40 m from the sea and less than 5 min walk from the nearest beach and resort center.

This studio is suitable for 2 to 3 persons, comprising of one living room/bedroom with twin beds and space for a third (camp)bed, kitchenette, refrigerator, shower/WC and terrace
This studio is at the ground floor.

The neighborhood

The marvellous sandy beaches around the settlement are offered for swimming. There are water sports and boat trips. You can find a great surrounding area perfect for walking and mountain biking. There are lots of restaurants and traditional tavernas. In the evening the visitor of the village can have fun in the nightly clubs and the cafeterias of the region. A Dotto train travels round the area every hour so you can go to other beaches with more restaurants to try.

Getting around

Can you lets us know the way (bus, taxi, rented car, etc) and time of your arrival, so that we can help you get to us.
If you get a car (try here or or mail to to rent from a person at Bali). Use a map to come to Bali village, and then use the attached satellite photo to navigate from main road, through the village, to us.
If you get a taxi: try I think it’s rather cheap compared to usual taxis. It can deliver you when you arrive AND pick you up when you leave. In my opinion this is a really good choice, especially if you arrive late in the evening. For usual taxi try
If you use a bus
I think last bus is at 21.00 (depends on the season), but you have to check it (or ask me to check it for you):
Heraclio bus station
Chania bus station
-If you come - land at Heraclio airport:
Airport bus stop => bus => Heraclio bus station => bus => Bali village bus stop => Rethymno town/ Chania town

-If you come land at Chania airport:
Airport => taxi => Souda bus stop => bus => a. or b.
Rethymno bus station => bus => Bali village bus stop => Heraclio town.
Bali village bus stop => Heraclio town
You obviously always stop at Bali village bus stop
The towns are from west to east are like:
West – Chania - (Chania airport) – Souda port – Rethymno- Bali village – Heraclio - east

It’s a long and tiring way from bus stop to the Bali village and Valentino apartments. So in case you will use a bus to come to us, make sure that:
You will stop at the right bus stop “Bali village” which is between Heraclio town and Rethymno town, not at the end of the route.
Lets us know the time that you estimate you will be at Bali, a few days earlier.
There is a “tourist train” that stops at the bus stop when the bus comes.

Incredible experience in Crete !! This 'adress' is simply exceptionnal. Nikki and Christo, Constantinos's parents were alway there, alway available, and they welcame me an incredible way ! Thay are plenty of confidence for their guests (I found the key under the door map..) , nice appetizers sessions, and a wonderfull dinner, plus by a superb view. I would really to thank them, and to recommand this place. You're at 100m far from the small harbour and beach, I wouls also recommand the diving club Hippocampos, very kind. One word, GO THERE !

Niki and Hristos were absolutely lovely to me - I travelled by myself as I fancied a short break on my own and they both made me feel very welcome. They were really friendly and kind to me, Niki even gave me some of her home cooked food on my last night, which was delicious - I didn't get a chance to say thank you so if you read this Niki "THANK YOU". The apartment was excellent, it was painted white with white sofas and white bedding and the towels were white, it was exceptionally clean and there were mosquito nets on the windows - it was a cool and calming space. The shower was amazing too, really powerful and even though the kitchen and bathroom were quite little, everything I needed was there. The location was incredible too, perched up on top of the town and looking down onto the bay and the town of Bali spread out below - it was a truly beautiful place and I loved every minute of my stay. Bali itself is surrounded by five beaches and lots of little tavernas and shops, all of the locals were really friendly and I even lost my purse on the first day and it was handed in to one of the tavernas! I was so happy about this, it summed the character of the town - even though I travelled alone I didn't feel lonely as everybody was so easygoing.

I'd highly recommend this place to everybody who wants to have a relaxed time on Crete. Valentinos is a stunningly beautiful located, the appartments are clean and equipped with everything which was mentioned in the description. The couple running the place is lovely and caring. Hristos even picked me up from the bus station when I arrived and brought me back there when I departed. He also shared some of his favorite Greek music which was awesome. I really enjoyed my stay at Valentinos and am sure that I will come back to stay there next year.

This is a very nice place. The owners are so friendly and generous. The rooms are basic and very clean. I appreciated having a frig, sink and hot plate to do some simple meals. This is ideal for longer stays. Best points: the views from the terrace, the helpfulness of the hosts. Areas that could be improved: the WIFI signal - need a stinger router and repeaters to get to every room., parking. The road next to the hotel is narrow and steep. You may want to park up the hill a short walk from the apartments. If I were to come back to Crete for a week or more holiday, this is the place I would stay.

Our stay at Valentino was absolutely great! The room was as pictured with great 180 degree views from the patio areas. The room was clean and had all the aminities noted on the website, the studio is very basic, but has everything you need. Niki and Hristos were extreamly friendly and treated us like family. One of our best experiences of our three month trip. (we stayed a week in Greece) We liked that studio was at the far end of the village, away from the large busy beach but having a couple smaller beaches close by. We took public transport from Chania, first taking the bus from the airport to central chania, then from there to Bali Village. Once you get to the village we took the "tourist train" from the bus stop to the very end (2 euros) and were quite close to Valentino. You do have to make sure you are paying attention and tell the bus driver you are getting off at Bali Village as the bus only stops when stops are requested or their are people waiting at the bus stop. Do note there is a small hill to walk up and down to get anywhere from the apartments. We would definitely recommend Valentino Apartments to anyone visiting the area, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Crete. An experience you don't want to miss!

Nikki & Christos are lovely people. We received a nice warm welcome together with some delicious homemade food! The view is spectacular and Bali is situated right in the middle of the Island which makes it very practical for travelling. I thoroughly recommend Valentino appartments!!
