Rouladina Apartments, Stalos, Crete       Free wifi


Perched on the hillside these apartments with pool, 500 metres from sandy Stalos beach, are set amongst a patchwork of green vineyards, with a touch of comfort and where impeccable attention is paid to the smallest detail. 
Ever since they were first introduced to our programme, our Rouladina Apartments have  proved consistently  popular with  clients, who  praise  the high standards, warm welcome and genuine hospitality of the owners, Manolis and Dimitra. 

There are a total of three spacious, three bedroom apartments, two apartments with two bedrooms and one smaller apartment with one bedroom. All the apartments  have their own telephones and share the sparkling 10m x 5m swimming pool, surrounded by sun terraces with pretty flower beds and splashes of bougainvillaea adding a vivid touch of colour. Behind the apartments, vineyards stretch away up the quiet hillside, whilst from your balcony or the poolside, the blue sea beckons beyond the dark green vines.


There is a choice of  tavernas within a very short stroll of the apartments and two small mini markets no more than  100 metres away. A further choice of tavernas and mini markets are strung along the coast road 500 metres away, from where there is also a regular bus service to Chania. 

Each apartment has an open plan living area with sofa and easy chairs, plus coffee and dining tables. A pine breakfast bar separates the well equipped kitchens with ample cupboard space and work surfaces, plus full electric cookers, sensibly large fridge freezers, microwave and coffee machine. 

A particular feature of these apartments is the large picture windows or floor to ceiling patio doors at the front of each apartment, making the most of the sea views, whilst double glazing keeps the heat outside where it belongs. For those families with an extra person to accommodate, the sofa in the living room converts into a single bed. All apartments have their own private balconies or terraces complete with patio furniture. 

Manolis and Dimitra, the proud owners of these  apartments  are Greek Canadians, who finally decided to return to their Cretan roots along with their daughters Roula and Dina. They have their own apartment upstairs and take care of the property and their guests with a perfect combination of discreet Canadian efficiency and genuine Cretan hospitality. Be warned  that Dimitra makes the most delicious cakes and other Cretan specialities which she loves her guests to try, so if you are intent on keeping in shape during the holiday, it may take a little more discipline than you counted on.


Especially useful on departure day, a reception area tucked away to the rear has 3 guest W.C.'s. plus a shower room and a storeroom for luggage, so you can enjoy your holiday right up to the last minute. There is also a washing machine for communal use.


Rouladina Apartment 3, 3 bedrooms

At first floor level and reached via a staircase at the far end of the pool, an entrance door leads into the open plan living area (A/C) with breakfast bar and kitchen at the far end.


On one side an archway leads to an inner hallway with a bathroom shared by a double bedroom to the front and twin bedroom to the rear.


On the opposite side of the living area is a further twin bedroom with ensuite shower room. A feature of this apartment is the full-length patio windows off the living room and two front bedrooms, leading to generous balconies overlooking the pool and of course enjoying superb seaviews.


Greek Tourist Tax
From 1/1/18, the Greek Government introduced an overnight stay tourist tax of 0.50 €  per apt. per night.
You’ll be asked to pay the tax, in cash, soon after you check-in.

Location of Rouladina Apt 3
Stalos, Crete

7 km west of Chania, the village of Lower Stalos fringes a long, sandy beach with the island of Theodorou, said to be a petrified sea monster, rising from the sea just a short distance off shore. 1km inland the small village of Upper Stalos nestles serenely on the hillside amidst a patchwork of vineyards and olive groves. Here you will find a slower pace of life as well as a couple of the best local tavernas in the area, both certainly worth a visit or two!

Perfect holiday !
"We stayed a week at the apartment and it was perfect. Perfect location (easy to catch the express road to go to Chania, Elafonissi or Balos), perfect in equipment and perfect welcome from the hosts. Thanks for making our stay there this nice!"
Enastående gästfrihet

Todd & Co
Awesome apartment
"An awesome apartment, very conveniently located to the Stalos beach, several tavernas, coffee shops, and super markets. Go for a run in the olive groves behind the apartment--it will transport you to another world! The Amethystos next door is a must do! Enjoy an awesome, fresh homemade meal by mama and chat with the family who also serve as staff. Rouladina gets my highest recommendation!"
Amazing holiday
"We had an amazing stay in Stalos, thanks in part to the great accommodation we had. The owners Dimitri & Manolis were very helpful . Close to the beach, and all amenities and as we had no car very convenient to bus stop to get around the area. Thank you. Thoroughly recommend staying here"

The O'Dea Family
Lovely sea view balcony
"Great holiday. Accommodation was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. Lovely balcony with sea view. 10 min walk to very nice sandy beach and shops. We much preferred location to busier strip further west. Kids really enjoyed pool. They had it to themselves most of the time. "
Great sea views
"A great place for families with children, close to the beach great views of the sea from the large balcony. Large, bright ,cool rooms, tidy and service played smoothly. from the balcony directly to the good view of the pool. Opposite the restaurant amethystos where even breakfast is available"
Hieno paikka lapsiperheille
"Hieno paikka lapsiperheille, hiukan ylämäkeä rannalta tullessa mutta näkymä merelle korvaa vaivannäön ja parveke on koko huoneiston levyinen . Isot huoneet, siistiä ja palvelu pelasi moitteetta. parvekkeelta suoraan hyvä näkymä altaalle. Vastapäätä ravintola amethystos josta saa tarvittaessa jopa aamupalaa.”"
The Deir family
Highly recommended
"I spent 5 days with my family at Roudalina Appartment 3. The owner was very kind and caring. The place was clean and tidy with excellent view. Highly recommended to couples and families"

Suzanne T
" Love Rouladina nice apartment the family are so welcoming nothing to much trouble. You could not wish for anywhere better. Each year there is some improvements made to the apartments which is good to see. Already booked for next year. This Company are Excellent always helpful nothing to much trouble for them. When you ring them it's like family. Keep up the good work."
The Yaps
"We had a really wonderful stay! The owners Manolis and Dimitra are right next door and they were very kind. We wanted to be a little west of Chania to explore western Crete and the house is a great base - the beaches (Balos, Elafonissi) were incredible (although long drives) and we enjoyed hiking the Samaria gorge with our two sons (age 8 and 6 - totally doable). Closer to home, the house is very comfortable, the local beach in Stalos is super, and our kids had great fun in the pool. The agency provided a handy pamphlet with good restaurant recommendations and a detailed map of local markets facilities. We really enjoyed Crete - probably our favorite destination in Greece. Hope to be back - thanks again!"
Kristine L
Amazing Sea Views
"We had a wonderfull holiday at Roulandina Apartments In stalos - Crete. It is a very beautiful spot With an amazing views over the Sea. The apartment exceeded our expectations - especially the balconies Where we spent many good hours. Perfect location, quiet, close to the Sea and close to Chania. We be back."

Fin lejlighed
"Fin lejlighed, der fungerede fint for 2 voksne og 5 unge mennesker. Rengøring og service var god, og modtagelsen uovertruffen. Lækker roligt område, med kort afstand til liv. Fin pool og fælles terrasse som vi brugte meget"
Dan, Sarah & kids
Great Sea Views
"We had a great week, we were not expecting a sea view, so was pleased when we arrived unpacked, then had cool drinks on the balcony with sea views thrown in !,the local tavernas are easy to walk to and quite varied but all quite cheap and cheerful, so many beaches all within a 20 min drive, we will return."
Stefan C and family
So peaceful and relaxing
"The owners are so friendly, helpful and above all welcoming. We had lengthy delays with our flight home and the local Rep, Diane, suggested we check in and go back to the apartment to wait. When we arrived, we were welcomed with coffee, cold drinks and some wonderful cake. They set up the communal room for us to allow our young children to get some rest if needed, provided us with linen etc. Where else would you get such kindness? The apartments (6 in all) as well kitted out, spacious and well maintained. The pool is rarely busy and it is so peaceful and relaxing. A special thank you to Diane for all her help during the flight delays in re-booking our transfer to the airport and giving so much support and assistance. Yes, we will be returning."
The Bark Family
"The apartments were fantastic - well equipped and very clean and cool. Dimitra was an excellent hostess with lovely touches such as wonderful home baked cakes. The pool was smallish but great and safe for children."
Antony M
"Third time we have stayed here never disappoint,s excellent place to stay. it's only 15 min's from Chania and Platanis with good bus links. Have to give a big thank you to Diana our rep for personally picking us up on our departure day , due to the taxi strike. just the kind of service i have come to expect from Freelance.Excellent thank you. "

"We are very satisfied with the service and follow up from Freelance and especially the local contct (Diana). Both the recomended tours and the way the taxi strike were solved was outstanding."

The Darleys
"Rouladina was excellent. Manolis & Dimitra were welcoming without being intrusive. And the Walnut cake exceptional. Hadn't changed from last visit. highly recommended "
The Coughlans
The whole family loved it!!
"Extremely spacious & well equipped apartment, large balcony overlooking pool/sea. Well positioned in a quiet area, but within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants & fab beach. The whole family loved it!!"
Angela Duncan
Friendly feel about the place
"Dimitra makes excellent cakes! Also there was a friendly feel about the place, other holiday makers were really nice, although I know this can't be guaranteed. It may be because place is small and cosy. Also views of sea really good and place very peaceful but Chania only a bus ride away."
Julia Allan
Wonderful !!
"Great location, wonderful owners."

"Review Rating : 5/5 "Great Apartments, Great Holiday!" "We have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks' holiday at Rouladina Apartments. This was our first visit to Crete with our two boys aged 15 and 8 and we were certainly not disappointed. The Apartments are comfortable and clean and in an ideal position away from the bustle of the Tavernas and shops and beach but within easy strolling distance. The photos on the website really do give an accurate idea of the properties and surroundings. The beach is lovely and we spent plenty of time there as well as in the Apartments' pool. The grounds of the Apartments are very attractive and there is plenty of shade available. The owners, Manolis and Dimitra are lovely and we were given a wonderful welcome with home made cakes and Raki! Manolis also regularly gave us produce from his small allotment which he harvested in the mornings. There is maid service every day except Sunday and the sheets and towels are changed twice a week. The area itself is ideal, not too busy but having a good choice of Tavernas and small shops. We hired a car and enjoyed a couple of trips out to Falassarna (North west, about 45 mins drive) and through the mountains to Elafonisi, Southwest about 2hrs drive). If you don't hire a car there is a regular bus service into the main town of Chania, about 20 mins drive and there is also a great water park within about a half hour drive where we spent a very enjoyable day. The weather was fabulous, clear blue skies and hot sunshine every day. We would thoroughly recommend Crete as a holiday destination and these apartments particularly. We are hoping to book again for next year! August 2008" "

Chris and Ian Smith
"We have just returned from a two week holiday staying at the Rouladina Apartments, Stalos, Crete. We would like to say how much we enjoyed the holiday and how nice the apartments were. We were so well looked after by the owners, and could not fault Freelance in any way for detail and accuracy of the apartments and location. We would strongly recommend Freelance to our friends, and look forward to booking more holidays with Freelance, possibly next time in Majorca. "
Family from Leeds
Apartment was perfect
"Simply brilliant We planned a holiday (2007) as a family of five (four adults, one child) so we chose a three bedroom. Firstly, the pictures do not do the place justice. It's VERY clean (thanks to the housekeeper Joanne!) and spacious. It has a airy feeling and the set up of the apartment was perfect. The view is spectacular because its set on the hill overlooking everything. Restaurants are within a one minute walk down the hill as well as several small stores selling milk, bread, and other necessities. The beach is a two minute walk and the bus stop is at the end of the hill making it fantastic to go to Chania city centre for shopping & site seeing. The owners are truly accommodating - letting my daughter borrow pool toys from their storage unit, and letting us read and return books at our leisure. You'll be well impressed with everything the apartments have to offer. There is only one must - YOU MUST ASK THE OWNERS WHERE TO GO FOR AUTHENTIC FOOD! They have a relative that owns an incredible restaurant with the most unbelieveable views. The food was superb and service unbeatable! We're coming back this summer and we know we will not be disappointed. "
