Aptera Bay View Apts and Studios, Megala Horafia, Crete

 

Free wifiMeticulously cared for by two brothers and their delightful sister and perched on the hill above Souda Bay, the Aptera Bay View apartments, share a privileged position overlooking Souda Bay  a view first enjoyed by the Minoans when they built their fortress at Aptera  just over 500 meters away. Chosen as a good viewpoint then, it still cuts the mustard these days and although theres no longer any need to keep watch for pirates, its certainly very pleasant to sit on your balcony at breakfast with a bowl of yogurt and honey and watch the ferries and fishing boats  plying their way across the bay. Perfect for a holiday in Crete where the culture of sigar, sigar (slowly, slowly) gradually seeps into your being.

 

These smart, sparkling white apartments arranged in two separate units, have a generosity in their layout which is reflected in the prettily flowered gardens in which they sit.

 

The lovely 6.30m x 13.50m pool has a separate childrens pool and is set beside a large lawn, with space a plenty for sun beds under the shade of the palm trees.

 

Conveniently, three tavernas can be found in the village of Megala Horafia, 1 km away, as well as a small mini market. A further 3 kms brings you to  the tiny hamlet of Kyani with a choice of 2 tavernas and a quiet sandy beach and if you drive for  5 minute more you will arrive at  the bustling seaside town of Kalives.

 

Two Bedroom Apartments

 

The four first floor apartments, two to each unit have entrance doors leading from a balcony into a large open plan living area furnished with Cretan sofa and arm chairs and solid wooden dining and chairs.

 

Two sets of French doors open onto sea view balconies, furnished with outside dining furniture. The kitchenette has tidy a run of wooden cupboards, a two ring hob, a small oven and a fridge.

 

Both bedrooms have air conditioning and the double bedroom has its own sea view balcony, whilst the twin bedroom shares a sea view balcony with the living room as well as having its own sunny balcony to the front of the apartment. The bedrooms share a tiled shower room.

 

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 Aptera Bay Apt 2 Bdrms
Megala Horafia, Crete

Some 12 km from Chania and perched atop a thyme-covered hillside overlooking the islands of Souda Bay the small village of Megala Horafia with a population circa 300, still boasts a church or two, plus a local kafenion, three tavernas and a thriving economy based on sheep and honey! The panoramic views of the distant mountains are quite remarkable.

A big thank you
"I did not get a chance to say to you our "thank you" for wonderful vacation at Crete Aptera. This was our first time on the island and not the last. We fell in love with Greek culture, history, friendly people, food, wine, greek sun and sea. Please pass on our BIG "Thank you" to Christos and Anna for warm welcome and keeping our stay comfortable and careless"
John Folkes
Simply stunning view
"The view from Aptera apartments looking out over Souda Bay was simply stunning. The ancient ruins of Aptera are just a 5 minute walk away and provide an idyllic way to spend a couple of hours away from the pool and gardens. The village of Megala Horafia is 1km away and has 3 decent restaurants and a small bar all of which make you very welcome. Forget the long trip to the Samaria Gorge and instead try the local Theriso Gorge."

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.
