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 5, 2 bedrooms 

 

On the second floor and reached by a staircase from the rear of the property, this apartment has an entrance door into the spacious open plan living area (A/C) with the kitchen to one side.

 

Beyond this, an archway leads to an inner hallway with bathroom and double bedroom with full sea views to the front, plus a twin bedroom with ensuite shower room to the rear. This apartment also has full length patio windows off the living room and double bedroom leading to balconies with wonderful seaviews. 

 

Apartments 5 and 6 both have private front balconies with stunning sea views and also share a large rear terrace with peaceful rural views of the vineyards stretching away up the hillside. 

 

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.

Just what we’d hoped for.
"Our apartment was just what we’d hoped for. Very stylishly furnished, large, clean, and well equipped. The pool was lovely too and the other guests very polite and respectful. Whenever we had any queries, the Freelance team dealt with them very quickly, and seemed very keen to make sure we had the best possible holiday. Which we did!"

Location of Rouladina Apt 5
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!

Tolle Gastfreundschaft
"“Tolle Gastfreundschaft, nicht weit von Restaurants entfernt, toller Startpunkt, um die schönsten Strände im Westen mit dem Auto zu erreichen.” "Great hospitality, not far from restaurants, great starting point to reach the most beautiful beaches in the west by car.""
Patrizia
Appartamento perfetto
"Bellissima vacanza, appartamento perfetto.Se torniamo ci piacerebbe soggiornarvi di nuovo! "Beautiful holiday, perfect apartment. If we go back we would stay here again!"
Catherine
Great apartment
"Our stay went very smoothly. The apartment is spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children. The beaches are close and lots of lovely villages."
Adelle
Beautiful apartments
"The apartments are beautiful with a lovely shared pool, which until our last day we practically had to ourselves. The owners were lovely and helpful and couldn't have been more welcoming. The apartments are very central. You can walk into town with the local tavernas within 5 minutes and there are lots of buses to take you to the larger town of Chania. We hired a car for a few days so that we could explore the rest of the island. I would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments."
Joakim and family
We would surely stay here again
"Our stay at Rouladina in Kato Stalos was excellent. Our hosts were most kind and the apartment (No 5) exceeded our expectations. The apartement is spacious enough for our family of 5, the pool area is very nice and the location is quiet with some 500 m down to the main road with restaurants. If we were to return to Kato Stalos, we would surely stay here again."
Maglie

Just what we wanted !
"The apartment was just what we were looking for. Dimitra and Manoli were very charming and they helped us with everything we needed. I would totally recomend this place if you want to visit the beaches that are located in the north and the west coast of Crete."

The apartment was pleasant, well equipped for cooking and there was even some nail polish remover when we needed it the most. The hosts were kind, generous, mindful and available. The pool was great, fun and clean. We had some beautiful evenings on our magical balcony, and we highly recommend the stay here!"

Julia Allan
wonderfull weeks holiday
"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" "

Flights to both Chania (CHQ) & Heraklion (HER) Airports

We don't book flights, we prefer to stick to what we love doing ( finding the best villas in the best places) below is  a rather good app showing flight routes, airlines, prices with links to the airlines to book.

** Top Tip **, if you avoid flying at the weekends or in different durations, 5,10 16 nights, flights are often a lot cheaper, and remember with Freelance you can arrive ANY DAY at our villas, good eh ...

If you prefer to talk;

Alan Garner - IAG If you prefer to speak to someone, we have found Alan Garner at VHG  Flights (A fully ATOL bonded company ATOL5889) very helpful (mention our  name when booking), you can call Alan on 01444 225 618 during office hours.
