Excellent for Familys

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Elea for 10 days in August.

The apartments are just what we required for our stay. The pool was great. Lovely beaches and tavernas within walking distance, supermarkets and bus stop to get into Chania town only 5 mins from the apartment.

We had a great holiday, could leave the kids running around playing and felt safe to do so.

The owners were on hand to help with anything at all and very friendly.

Elea is priced right and I would recommend to familys looking for a relaxing break.

we spent a lovely week at Elea, the pool was great for all of us especially the kids. We could walk easily to a choice of 3 stunning beaches. Supermarkets just round the corner too. The apartment was nice and cool at night and we liked to sit on the balcony in the evening, looking over at the hills. It was great to stay in a place where you could buy a beer or ice cream for the kids right there on the premises. We did manage to make lunch every day in the kitchen but the kitchen isn't really equipped for cooking a full meal. Loads of decent places to choose from for dinner. Would like to go back again some time. Defiantly good customer service.

So, wie wir es uns erhofft hatten

  • 5 of 5

Alles war wunderbar und so, wie wir es uns vorgestellt/erhofft hatten. Unsere Ferienwohnung wie die gesamte Anlage war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die vielen Olivenbäume auf der Anlage bieten Sichtschutz und vermitteln ein Gefühl von Privatsphäre. Die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, zum Beispiel als wir ein Auto gemietet haben. In dem großen Pool mit einem kleinen Kinderbereich waren wir meistens alleine (Ende Mai).

Logement très fonctionnel

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été globalement très content de cette location. Logement très propre, spacieux et fonctionnel. Les propriétaires nous ont très bien accueillis allant même jusqu'à nous offrir des échantillons de leur repas de Pâques en famille pour nous faire goûter. Les employés ont été disponibles pour répondre avec une grande gentillesse à nos questions durant la semaine. La visite quotidienne des chats présents sur le site a contribué à la sensation d'être comme à la maison ;-) !

Petit bémol sur le chauffage de notre chambre qui ne fonctionnait pas (les soirées sont très fraîches à cette époque de l'année). La piscine est très belle, les plages aussi et ce séjour en Crète nous a enchantés. Nous conseillons sans hésitation cette location.

A recommander!!!

  • 5 of 5

Semaine très agréable dans cette location.Les propriétaires sont charmants et très à l'écoute ( un petit problème de clim a été résolu tout de suite).Toujours une petite attention quand vous allez boire un verre au bar ( biscuits salés ou sucrés).Les propriétaires sont toujours prêts à vous aider quand vous demandez un renseignement.Le logement était top, face à la piscine, propre et bien amménagé.Le ménage a été fait 2 fois dans la semaine, les draps changés une fois et le linge de toilette changé 2 sans qu'on ne demande rien!!!A la fin du séjour on nous à même dit de ne pas nettoyer le logement.

La piscine est très bien équipée: beaucoup de transats et pleins de jouets pour les enfants pour jouer dans l'eau.

C'est une location en ville mais très au calme.A conseiller pour les familles avec enfants.Nous y retournerions sans hésiter.

The westernmost side of Crete, Chania is a wonderful place for vacations. The Town is a romantic place to stroll around, with Medieval architecture, elegant mansions and a wonderful Venetian port, the most famous spot of the town. In close distance to Chania Town, there are many wonderful beaches. However, you should not also miss excursions around the region to discover the fabulous spots of Chania: Balos, Elafonissi, Paleochora, Sfakia, Falassarna and Samaria Gorge. All beaches have crystal water and each one offers a unique experience, from the most tourist to the most secluded beach. The natural beauty of the area is breathtaking.
