Pavlakis Beach, Stalos, Crete

 Free wifi

This small oasis of 3 apartments and 6 studios on Stalos beach share a swimming pool overlooking the sea as well as a little sheltered garden dotted with patio furniture and sun beds in the shade of feathery tamarisk trees. The apartments belong to Antonis, one of Crete's favourite sons and renowned for his kindness and hospitality to all, including for more than 20 years, a loyal following of discerning holidaymakers who will stay nowhere else in Crete.

 

Antonis has been a good friend for more years than we care to remember and we have shared numerous cups of excellent filtered coffee in the apartments little reception or mini-bar, where guests and friends  are always warmly welcomed . 

Like many Cretans Antonis philosophy is that in a warm and sunny climate you don't necessarily need a huge amount of living space but you do need a decent terrace with good sea views, some shady trees and as many mod cons as you can squeeze in.

 

When you first arrive at your studio or apartment you will find bottles of local wine and olive oil with Antonis compliments which you will be told to re-filled whenever your supply gets low. Any time you are passing the reception or the little mini-bar outside, you're always welcome to have a freshly filtered coffee, a soft drink or perhaps an ouzo with a delicious local pastry. It's all entirely gratis, whatever the time of day or night and as Antonis is fond of saying, you must treat his house as your home. 

Finally, if you happen to be eating at one of the numerous local tavernas or even in Chania, don't be surprised if a bottle of wine magically appears on your table as more likely than not, Antonis has spotted you and had a quiet word with the waiter.

 

Ground Floor Apartment, sleeps 6/7

 

At ground floor level and to the rear of the reception is a large two bedroom apartment with a spacious open plan living area, with large picture windows providing lovely views towards the sea through the tamarisk trees. To the rear of the room is a cosy sitting area with 3 large sofas, whilst off the dining area is a door to a small well equipped kitchen, with full cooker,  fridge as well as a good length of marble work surface and plenty of cupboards and drawers.

 

Both the bedrooms are twin bedded with fitted wardrobes and their own TV. One bedroom has an adjoining full bathroom plus a washing machine, whilst the other has an en-suite shower room.

 

A popular feature of the apartment is its lovely terrace at the front with patio tables and chairs where you can dine alfresco within sight and sound of the sea, glimpsed through the Tamarisk trees in the communal garden. 

 

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.

Right on the beach !
"What a friendly place, the owner Antonis and the other guests all really nice and welcoming. The place has all you could need within the flat and the common areas and there are plenty of shops/restaurants around for everything else. Pool and sea at your toes, but plenty of other wonderful beach locations around within easy drive. The more popular ones of Balos and Elafonisi lovely, but get there early, and once done as a "check, did it", stick with the beach in your back garden or the tiny local ones - all much better..."

Location of Pavlakis Beach Grnd Flr Apt
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!

Fantastic Holiday
"We had a fantastic holiday as guests of Antonios. He was a superb host and looked after us brilliantly, providing local guidance and great hospitality. Our apartment was spacious and clean, well-equipped with a fantastic view from a large balcony overlooking the pool, sandy beach, and clear sea beyond. We felt that the current photos didn't even do the space justice! The local tavernas and bars were excellent and there was a lovely (French?) bakery/café for breakfast. Easy taxis and buses are available - car not necessary for Stalos, nearby beaches, Chania, and airport transfers. Many other guests had been returning for years, creating an atmosphere that was convivial but not intrusive - we can see why!"
The Bottone Families
Best ever
"Antonis is the best homeowner I have ever met. We arrived at night and he greeted us with dinner for 6 people. The apartment was great for our two families, with the pool and the sea very close. I will definitely be back. Efharisto"
The Simonsens
Recommend without reservations
"Very very happy with service, communication and most of all with apartment. Would recommend without reservations"
Norah
Fantastic
"The location is fantastic - pool plus beach plus lovely terrace and an absolutely amazing sea view. Antonis was so friendly and welcoming! He was extremely helpful and our girls loved all the orange juices and ice creams he gave them! A genuine, kind and knowledgeable host. Highly recommend! "
Keith K.
We had a great stay.
"Freelance Holidays is the agent for this apartment and they were very efficient and helpful in handling the booking, answering queries and providing directions The actual host is Antonis who is the owner/manager on site. Antonis is incredibly welcoming and friendly, very generous and always around for any help or advice needed. He speaks decent English too. Many of the residents of other 8 apartments here were repeat customers. The apartment is certainly not the newest accommodation but is spacious, cool in the July heat and well equipped, with a generous and shaded outdoor area. It is superbly located at the rear (north) of the building overlooking (but not too near) the pool and, immediately beyond that, the beach and the sea. The pool is a decent size, deep and well maintained and one of the closest pools to the sea in the whole area- it's almost built on the beach. The beach itself is a beautiful strip of clean sand, busy but not ridiculously so, and the swimming is excellent in very clear water. Kato Stalos has everything you need for a holiday- supermarkets, restaurants, bars, car hire etc. etc. even if the strip of settlement along the coast where one 'village' is connected to the next one all the way along for many miles is a functional and aesthetic disaster zone. It's easy to get into Hania and onto the 'national road' for adventures further afield. Altogether we had a great stay."
Frances Pirie
Welcoming atmosphere
"Wilst not be the most stylish and modern accommodation, but the slightly worn and shabby appearance is more than compensated by the warm, welcoming atmosphere created by the owner and his 'extended family' of friends and guests. Antonis Pavlaki is the most generous of hosts, deeply passionate about giving visitors a taste of the 'real' Crete and its people. In just one (too short!) week I know that I barely scratched the surface of this fascinating island, but the experience was richer and profoundly more satisfying than any all-inclusive package with its organised guided tours could have provided. I hope that in the future I will be counted among the many of Antonis' guests who have been returning for 20 years! "

"Mr. Pavlakis is a very nice man, and took very good care of us, and i recemend his place"
John Bennett
Great holiday is guaranteed
"A comfortable apartment literally only a stone's throw from the sea, plus Antonis Pavlakis, a generous host, even by Cretan standards. Who could ask for more? A great holiday is guaranteed."
Jean Barker
"We had a wonderful reception from Antonis. He looked after us most carefully. I have never known anyone telephone to see if you had caught your plane before, and arrived safely. We had a great time. His apartment block is just as you get into Stalos. Near enough for the usual night clubs which are further on if you require them, but also quiet enough for us to keep away from night time activities. "

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.
