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 the property 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 toilets plus a shower and a storeroom for luggage so you can enjoy your holiday right up to the last minute. There is also a washing machine here for communal use. 


Rouladina Apartment 4, 3 bedrooms

Situated to the far side of the apartments just beyond the pool, three steps lead down to a small private terrace with an entrance door into the living room (A/C).


From here an archway leads to the dining area, beyond which is the breakfast bar and kitchen.


On one side of the dining area is a twin bedroom with windows to the front and an ensuite shower room. To the other side, a sliding door leads to an inner hallway with a bathroom shared by one twin bedroom to the rear and one double bedroom to the front with a further small private terrace.


This apartment is notable for the charm of its private tree-shaded terrace and close proximity to the pool, making it particularly attractive for families who like to keep a relaxed eye on their water babies.


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 4
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!

Beautiful place
"Translation: Beautiful place in a quiet, very clean pool. close to the beach and nice little touches. We had a very good stay."
We will be back
"We would like to thank you for your efforts on having a very good experience in Rouladina. Our stay there can be easily rated with 5 stars, since the place was very cozy and above all Mr. Manolis and his wife Ms. Dimitra have proven more than warmhearted people during our arrival but also during our stay and our leave from the house. We hope that we could return next year.Thank you again for having our first experience with Freelance Holidays"
Memorable stay
"Thank you to our hosts who were friendly and always available whenever we had an problems! The children loved the pool, and my little girl learnt to swim there.. so a memorable stay"
Jenny and Family
A lovely relaxing place to stay
"The Rouldina apartments are a lovely relaxing place to stay - they are well maintained and the pool is great. They’re in a good location for beaches nearby and those further on the west coast of Crete. There are plenty of good tavernas in the vicinity within walking distance or you can go a bit further into Chania. Highly recommended!"
Superb apartment
"Roulandina apartment 4 was just perfect for our family of two adults and three children ages 8,13,15 The children loved using the pool and the view is beautiful. Thank you for a great stay. The apartment was very clean and the beds super comfortable. Thank you Manolis and Dimitra for being such lovely hosts"
Vacaciones perfectas

Paul & Co.
We will be back !
"We really enjoyed our stay at Rouladina. The hosts are friendly and kind, always helped us out (eg: we borrowed sun umbrellas and beach toys; even a small hoover to clean up the rental car), and gave us good advice on where to go to. The neighbourhood is quiet, and there is a (super good) restaurant at 2-minutes walk, where you can order dishes to go. Also the pool is clean and is really handy when you have to stay at home. We will go back for sure!"

Great Time!
"This is a really great place to stay if you don't want to be right in the city. It does not take long to get into town or to restaurants, shops and beaches and the sea view & pool are amazing. Thank you so much! We had a great time! :) /Hanna "
Lovely clean, spacious apartment
"I stayed 6 nights, self and 2 children, it is lovely clean, spacious apartment, very well equipped with good cooking space and facilities. Large veranda and outdoor table/chairs,looking out onto the pool, which is a good size for children to play and swim. We had a car, and the location is good for trips exploring west Crete, driving slowly, Kissamos is around 45 mins, for boat trip to Gramvoulos, Chania around 10 mins, lovely old harbour with shops and cafes, Samaria Gorge around 80 mins start of Gorge, Elafonissi is a lovely drive through the mountains, with tavernas en route for lunch, and a fabulous beach at Elafonissi. Dimitra and her husband live on site and were very welcoming and helpful, available but not intrusive. Diana and her daughters were very helpful with suggestions for outings, and car advice, even though I had not hired through them. Walking distance to shops for food, restaurants, and buses for excursions, All in all a great time, thank you."
Nød både lejlighed, pool og udsigt
"Vi boede 8 nætter i Rouladina 4 og nød både lejlighed, pool og udsigt. Vi blev venligt modtaget og fik god hjælp til at orientere os i lokalområdet"
We Will be back !
"The Freelance-Holidays Team are professionals and i recommend this house for couples, families or friends who want to have a relax stay!! The apartment is very big, well equipped, clean and has everything that you may need during your vacations included a book with proposed places to visit, swim and eat. The bedrooms are super comfortable. Check in and check out was easy and we were well informed by the hosts few days before our arrival. Last but not least, the neighborhood is quite and safe but you need a car if you want to discover Chania and the well known beaches like Falasarna, Elafonisi, etc. I would definitely stay again!!!!”"
Fantastic !
"Fantastic location and great to just laze around the pool. Everyone really friendly. Nice touches of the welcome cake, drink and olive oil plus the fresh fruit brought by was wonderful!"

Swietne miejsce
"Swietne miejsce, mili i pomocni gospodarze oraz cudowna atmosfera. Na powitanie pyszne ciasto oraz Raki :) W czasie pobytu gospodarz dostarczal nam swieze warzywa ze swego ogrodka. Lot powrotny mielismy dosyc pozno i dzieki uprzejmosci gospodarzy moglismy zostac w apartamencie do poznego popoludnia - Dzieki! Serdecznie polecam to miejsce dla rodzin z dziecmi. Czulismy sie jak w domu!"
Great Apartment !
"Our stay at Rouladina Apartments was really good; the owner greeted us with shots of Raki, the local liqueur, and a booklet with lots of helpful information about Crete. The apartment was clean and also had a cleaner visit every other day. There is a beach about 5-10 mins walk away with lots of tavernas nearby, although its is a reasonably steep walk back to the villa, overall, we had a really nice stay at Rouladina"
Laszlo H
Great Views
"Very spacious apt, nicely refurbished, nice sea views. 5 mins walk to the coast (downhill) therefore very quiet and tranquil. Ideal for a bigger family. Hosts are friendly and very flexible. "
Just Perfect for us
"I just wanted to let you know that we are having a lovely time here at rouladina. The apartment, hospitality, island and weather are perfect for us. Thank you for the excellent instructions on how to get here from the airport and for the excellent Service we have received throughout. We would definitely recommend crete and freelance . Kind regards Lynne"

Girls Relaxing Holiday Getaway
"Myself and 5 other girl friends stayed at Rouladina Apt 4 for 7 days and absolutely loved it. It was the perfect location for a relaxing getaway with the pool on our doorstep and the beach within 5 minutes walking distance. The location is very peaceful and we had the pool to ourselves most of the time. The local town of Stalos was extremely close and we often took a walk to the restaurants and beach bars of an evening. Our favourite restaurant has to be the one literally, 30 seconds up the road. Run by a family, Amethystos had amazing food for amazing prices. Being students, we didn't have a massive budget so this was our go-to eating place. If however, we wanted to visit the bigger town of Chania, we took a bus from the bus stop directly opposite the beach and a supermarket we often visited for groceries, and it only cost 1.60 euros to get into town! We found us taking this journey most days as the price was unbeatable and there was plenty to see in Chania. By the harbour there was all the restaurants and bars you could want, with owners giving out discounts and freebies competing for business. The Old Town in Chania is filled with markets and small shops selling local produce such as soaps and food to unique handmade gifts and souvenirs. Another trip we often took was to the town heading in the opposite direction from Chania, called Platanias. Here we found a variety of things from nightlife to water sports. One night we went to Splendid, a club for a good drink and dance! During another day we took the bus to Platanias and spent the day on the beach. We found the beach had a variety of water sport activities to offer such as banana boating, flying fish rides, jet skiing and pedal boats. We fully recommend staying in this Apartment as the owners were wonderful and hospitable and the maid service was spot on. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday experience!"
Anki Hope
Really nice
"Accomocation was really nice, clean and situated off the fairly busy road. The owner made us feel very welcome. If you like to sit by the pool or swim in the sea this was the perfect place. Also near Chania which has a charming old town. We like to do walks, but there was not really any good walks nearby, so perhaps it would be better to stay further off the coast if you like a more active holiday. Local tavernas varied a bit, but the Amethystos right next door was good and so was Oassis on the main road. The Wine "
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 "

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! "
