The beautiful beach of Kalathas village is 5 to 10 min away from the studio. Its a sandy beach with shallow water which during the summer gets busy with youth of Chania because of its proximity to the town.
The apartment is situated for easy access near both the beautiful city of Chania which is 9 km away and to a number of monuments and sightseeings a traveller might be interested in visiting. Such monuments are the Gouverneto Monastery and the Monastery of Agia Triada. The famous village of Stavros (from the movie "Zorbas" with Antony Quinn) is a five minute drive to the north of Kalathas.
Moreover, close to our family apartments is the famous small beach of "Seitan Limania" with amazing, exotic, blue water.
A bus stop is 5 min walking distance and there are small shops and a supermarket in the area. The bus from Kalathas village towards the city of Chania runs 5 times a day. From the next village which is only 2 km away, there is a bus going to the city every half an hour.

This apartment is close to the airport (10km) and the port (12km) of the city and it is the ideal starting point to explore the island of Crete.
If you will not rent a car, we can arrange transfers from and to the port or the airport.
Other Things to Note
Crete is a big island with many beautiful places. So it is better for you, if you rent a car. Ask me for rent a car link.
Respect the property and your neighbours.
Please do not leave the air condition all day and all night working cause there is a danger of black out.
During the winter time, we provide you with heaters but you have to pay separately the electricity bill.
Wir sind sehr herzlich empfangen worden und Marias Mutter hat uns alles rund um das Apartment, Haus und die Umgebung erklärt. In den 14 Tagen haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt, alle "lebenwichtigen" Dinge waren in der kleinen Küche vorhanden. Besonders gut hat uns gefallen, dass das Sea View eher in dörflicher Struktur liegt, aber in allen Dingen wie Versorgung (Minimärkte und Restaurants) und öffentlichem Nahverkehr sehr gut angebunden ist. Ein ruhiger Platz, übersichtlich und Ausgangspunkt für viele Besichtigungstouren, bei dem Preis und Leistung paßt. Herzlichen Dank!
I had a lovely stay at Maria's family villa. The villa is a gorgeous hacienda style house a short drive from the airport and Chania, and a short walk to Kalatha beach. My room had an amazing view and it was so peaceful and quiet. This is a place to stay if you want to get away from the busy city but still be close enough to all the conveniences. You can drive to a nearby taverna to eat or buy your food at the supermarket and prepare it in your room.
Maria and her parents were such warm generous hosts, even going out of their way to accommodate me when I missed my flight.
My stay here was a highlight of my Crete trip. I highly recommend staying with Maria and her parents.
Maria and her family made us feel at home from the minute we arrived! Everything was taken care of and we had the most beautiful room with sea view. Maria's mom spoiled us with delicious cookies and made sure that we knew where everything was. The beach close to the apartment in gorgeous and well protected from the wind. We couldn't have wished for anything else! Thank you!
Had a great time in Kalathas!
Great beach right in front of the door with the best snorkeling experiences of our holiday, simple but clean and very nicely done up!
Thank You Maria for all the great places You recommended. Definitly an A+ for You and your family as host!
We definitely hope to come back to Crete!
This was our very first time in Crete and my boyfriend and I just longed for a quiet little beach break; away from everything and we could not have made a better choice. A fifteen minute car journey from Chania airport; these cosy little apartments are overlooking the sea and it is a five minute walk to a picture perfect beach you would expect to see in a holiday catalogue-soft sand, crystal clear water with two cute beach bars, one of them serving perfectly acceptable food. To be honest, we could have just stayed in this very spot for the five days we were there but when we did venture out to picturesque Chania and some nearby beaches and villages (we did hire a car but in hindsight could have done without), we concluded that nowhere else was as nice and quiet as Kalathas. The simple apartment has a very cosy bed, small balcony, perfect air condition and the coolest retro tiles in kitchen and bathroom! Away from any horrible package holidays, garish bars and loud tourists, this is the perfect low-key, alternative getaway. Apart from us were only other couples who wanted the same as us and it was blissfully quiet at night. And regarding our wonderful host - how do you solve a problem like Maria?! By baking cookies. And feeding us freshly picked fruit. And bringing over the most delicious Cretan cheese pies on my birthday that her mum had made. We will definitely be back; thanks so much for everything!
Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux dans le studio loué par Maria. Le studio est conforme aux photos, propre, idéal pour un pied à terre confortable pour visiter la Crète (et la vue du balcon est superbe!!).
Nous avons été accueillis très chaleureusement par Maria et sa famille. Ce sont des personnes formidables qui ont le coeur sur la main et n'hésitent pas à partager avec vous les astuces et bons plans de leur île. Leur présence et leurs attentions ont réellement contribué à rendre notre séjour en Crète inoubliable.
Accoglienza perfetta! Tutto secondo le descrizione, posto tranquillo ideale per visitare le principali attrazione del lato occidentale dell'isola!
