Perfect Beach and Mountain in Bay Village Once Seen In The Film Zorba The Greek
Do you want to completely get away from City life? Alexis Apartment is ideal relaxation for families and couples. Simply 60 second walk from the beach. Quiet with the natural beauty of a mountain and a secluded bay with clear blue waters you can swim across to the mountain every day. The bay is naturally created to have very shallow waters to one side of the crescent which is greatly enjoyed by people of all ages including toddlers, children and non-swimmers alike. Enjoy the fact you can walk in your towel with your beach bags from apartment to sea in a matter of seconds and back again for a cheap lunch. Unwind in the evenings at one of the taverna's or simply cook for yourself and sit on the private terrace in the warm evening sun watching the stars appear above the mountain. Enjoy the original panorama once filmed for 60's feature film, Zorba The Greek.
Apartments range from one bedroom (sleeps 4 with 2 lounge beds) or two bedroom (sleeps 6 with 2 lounge beds). Please do get in touch with any questions or queries.
About the Owner
Hi! Alexis Apartments is a family run establishment. I am Alexis the eldest son and i live in the U.K. My Mother, Susie is Greek (though lived in England for 30 years) and lives in Stavros Bay close to our apartments.
From the Owner
“We have had this apartment for 10 years and they have been a much loved destination for many a returning customer. What initially attracted us to the location was its incredible natural beauty and that Stavros Bay was the holiday destination secret for the Greeks themselves to unwind after city life in Athens and Thessaloniki. We like to pride ourselves on cleanliness of our establishment and a very friendly and very Greek attitude to our guests.”
Activity and Interests
60 seconds walk to beach
The apartment is about 12km from Chania International Airport, which has direct flights from the UK from May to October.
Easyjet: Gatwick to Chania airport
Monarch Charter, FlyTorair, Thomson: Birmingham, Manchester, Gatwick to Chania airport
Aegean Airways: Heathrow to Chania Airport via Athens
There is 24-hour car hire at Chania airport or you can get a bus or taxi here. We are only a 20-minute drive away.
We recommend hiring a car so you can explore the area and rest of Crete in your own time. However, if you’d prefer to stay car-free, there are daily buses around the peninsula and to Chania, which is only 17km away. From Chania, you can get a bus or book a tour to anywhere in Crete. The buses between Stavros and Chania don’t run in the evening but taxis are available instead.
Alexis Apartment is 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, snorkeling 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.

From the Owner
“Benefit from completely revitalizing healthy holiday. Firstly you are right on the beach...60 seconds walk away. There is brilliant swimming in the bay from toddlers to professional enthusiasts. Try getting up early as the sun is rising and stroll down to the empty idyllic beach and having a morning swim to start the day in crystal clear waters. You also have the Mountain that holds stories and beauty, as well as adventures for ramblers wishing to go to its peak and explore the peninsula for ancient ruins and the nearby Monastries. There are regular bus journeys direct from Stavros village to Chania Old Town where you can explore the ancient buildings and all the shopping you could desire.”
