Lovely property well located to access numerous excellent beaches and Chania

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property (apartment number 2). Everything as advertised, nice pool, very clean and tidy, nice and quiet and well located.

Good air con and good comfortable beds,

It is close to the airport so you get a bit of occasional aircraft noise but not too bad and you have to expect that with only being 15 mins away.

We would certainly recommend this property, you may pay a little more than average but its certainly one of the best apartments we have stayed in over the years.

Many times we had to pool to ourselves which was a bonus.

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as advertised. The check in instructions were very clear and our questions were answered quickly and throroughly. We especially appreciated the light blocking shutters in the bedrooms. It certainly helped cure the jet lag. The pool was clean and welcoming. We loved the beach located a short drive away and Chania was just a 10-15 minute drive along a gorgeous ocean side road. We had a great visit and I highly recommend this property.

Fabulous modern apartment with lovely pool.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for two weeks in June. The apartment was very clean and modern with air conditioning in each room. It was lovely to sit out on the terrace and swim in the pool. There is a beach just ten minute walk away with really good restaurants located near by. The owner was helpful and friendly.

very nice and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice and relaxing holiday in a beautiful apartment. Before we went I booked a bottle of sparkling wine and some flowers, because we had our wedding day, the da we arrived. Everything was arrangend beatifully and the wine was cold :-) Thanks to Elain, who was really freindly and very helpful. Some more cooking assecoirs could be there, but that was no problem, because there are some nice restaurants, steak houses and tavernas in this area and the barbecu in the garden was very good. We had our holiday with 2 children (8 and 14) and they enjoyed it as well. Nice pool. :-) Last but not least we had very nice neighbours ! Thanks and the best wishes to our swedish neighbours Yvonne and Alexandre !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review about the apartments and we are glad you had a good time. There are indeed some very nice restaurants in the village that you can walk to but we note what you say about the apartment needing a bit more accessories in the kitchen. We will arrange this and hopefully see you again soon.

Outstanding accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in these apartments for a few weeks at the end of September and have already booked to return next year.

They are really nice and are a very high standard compared to others I have stayed in previously. It has a washing machine which is a bonus and the apartment was very clean and very modern and had everything we needed. Good WiFi. We also used the BBQ by the pool a couple of times.

A supermarket and some restaurants are a couple of minutes walk. There are lots of sandy beaches around. Its about 10 minutes walk to the nearest but if you have a car they are all reachable in a couple of minutes. We found it great for swimming and really safe for the kids as the water is shallow. The apartments are on a peninsular called Akrotiri and a great area to have a holiday. It’s a quiet area with lots of Olive trees and water melon fields and not too may tourists. The good thing for us was the airport was nearby and it only took us 15 minutes to get to the apartment. The old city of Chania is amazing and a must see. It’s only a 15 minute drive but there are also buses that go from the village. We had a couple of day trips to Balos and Elafonisi beaches/lagoon and they are just stunning.

I’d definitely recommend these apartments if you want to experience real Greece and also stay in comfort.

Luxury holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this apartment complex. We are a family of four and We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed and our two girls loved waking up in the morning and jumping in the pool. The apartment was very clean. If we needed anything, the owner of the apartment was only a phone call away. I had to ask for extra pillows and it seemed nothing was too much trouble. The apartments are very private and quiet. We enjoyed bbqs in the evening and lots of swimming! the village is just a short stroll away with a local supermarket within 5 minutes walk. Tersannas beach is secluded, and very safe for small children. There is a bit of a hill climb on the way back. We found the local tavernas very welcoming and food was typically Greek and delicious. My girls particularly loved "lamb in a bag". I would recommend this apartment for any family holiday to Crete. It's a great location to explore the island, there are numerous beautiful beaches to visit. Stavros beach is a favourite and a must for any visitor

The Palms is set in a quiet area on the edge of the village of Chorafakia (or Horafakia), on the beautiful Akrotiri peninsula in Western Crete. It is set within a small development of 5 houses/apartments sharing a large swimming pool and beautiful gardens and grass lawns.

The house is a 20 minute drive from the historic Venetian city of Chania, also known as 'little Venice' and a 15 minute drive from the airport.

Chorafakia is a beautiful unspoiled Cretan village. It boasts amazing sunset views across the bay of Chania and the Aegean sea with numerous quiet, 'blue flag awarded' golden sandy beaches nearby. The beautiful beaches of Tersanas, Kalathas and Stavros are a few minutes away from the villa and all have lovely fish restaurants and beach bars. Stavros is a beautiful cove with a small harbour where the Oscar winning 'Zorba the Greek' movie was filmed. The area is perfect for relaxing and has many monasteries and caves waiting to be explored in the mountain range which runs along the length of the peninsular. There are plenty of local supermarkets, restaurants and bars offering local and international cuisine as well as places for horse riding, sailing and scuba diving nearby.

Surrounded by a unique unspoiled nature, Apsida Villa is the perfect location for relaxing or a base for making daily excursions.
