Location of Rouladina Apt 2
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!

Noelle B et Sa Famille
Je recommande vivement.
"Très agréable et très accuillant, nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cet appartement. Je recommande vivement."
Nous avons adoré notre séjour
"Nous avons adoré notre séjour, les propriétaires étaient très sympathiques, on a eu de très belles attentions, petits gâteaux à l'arrivée, Raki, huile d'Olive maison, Tomates du jardin ! L'appartement est très agréable avec une belle terrasse à l'ombre :-) Nous avons découvert un endroit top, une jolie plage pas très grande à environ 40 minutes de l'appartement et la route n'est pas trop difficile d'accès comme d'autres peuvent l'être, il s'agit de la plage de Marathi ! On peut s'y restaurer avec une jolie vue pour pas cher, on est arrivé vers 10h mais c'était fin septembre, si vous y allez l'été, je pense q u'il vaut mieux arriver plus tôt car la plage n'est pas grande !"
Christophe B
A great week
"Translation: Upon arrival we were met by the owner who lives next door and this is very convenient as she is available if we have any needs or questions. The apartment was very clean and very well equipped. We had a great week by the pool with our private terrace! The place is very quiet and close enough to HANIA (15 min drive). Supermarkets are very close (possible on foot) as well as bakery and butcher. We recommend this apartment: you will not be disappointed. Thank you "
Chrsitophe B
Nous recommandons cet appartement
"A notre arrivée, nous avons été reçu parla propriétaire qui vit à côté et cela est très pratique car elle est disponible si nous avons des besoins ou questions. L'appartement était très propre et très bien équipé. Nous avons passé une super semaine au bord de la piscine avec notre terrasse privative ! L'endroit est très calme et assez proche de HANIA (15 mn en voiture). Des supermarchés sont très proches (possible à pied) ainsi que boulangerie et boucherie. Nous recommandons cet appartement : vous ne serez pas déçu. Merci!”"

Hope to be back
"We were incredibly happy with our stay! Wonderful hosts and the Freelance team were extremely swift in their response to our queries. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to be back to this wonderful place in the near future!"
Very Happy
"Translated: Very hospitable and friendly host. We were very happy and the holiday was very successful!"
Erittäin tyytyväisiä
"Todella vieraanvarainen ja ystävällinen majoittaja. Olimme erittäin tyytyväisiä ja loma oli oikein onnistunut!"
The Hyman's
Great time
"Most lovely, kind and generous hosts. Very comfortable and relaxing flat, great pool for kids and adults. Close to nice beaches and to the city Chania. We had a great time."
The Barnetts
Exactly as described
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Appt 2 was exactly as described and was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Shower in the en suite has to be well timed as you inevitably get the floor wet which makes using the loo a bit of an issue but once you get the timing right it's fine! The pool was immaculate and the area really well maintained. Stalos is very much a resort, but the beaches are great and there are loads of good Tavernas to choose from. We had a great family holiday there. The booklet that Freelance supply is excellent! Make use of it!"
Great Apt and views
"Great location & sea views and good value for families. Nice pool."
Lovely Apartments and sea views
"We (5 of us) stayed at the Rouladina apartment 2 in Crete All communication was very pleasant with precise information available to us before arrival. The directions and check in was smooth The apartment was very clean, and well equipped with lovely sea views. The kitchen is also well equipped and we spent a few mornings having breakfast on the terrace and evenings with a drink, just perfect for a small group. The pool is clean and suitable for a dip before heading out or just lazing around. There is also sufficient parking space. The rooms were cosy, and there are two bathrooms, one attached to a room and another from the living room. The cleaning was done twice during our stay which was more than sufficient. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place and we would surely go back on our next visit to Crete!"
Très bonne
"Très bonne location"
Sea Views were the best
"Great apartment in Stalos! . It was spacious, tidy, located in a good location and the staff were really friendly. The swimming pool with a quiet courtyard and sea view from the terrace crowned the whole. Really good price-quality ratio. I highly recommend!"
Suosittelen lämpimästi
"Olen todella tyytyväinen majoitukseemme Haniassa. Se oli tilava, siisti, sijaitsi hyvässä paikassa ja henkilökunta oli todella ystävällistä. Uima-allas rauhallisella sisäpihalla ja merinäkymä terassilta kruunasivat kokonaisuuden. Todella hyvä hinta-laatu -suhde. Suosittelen lämpimästi!"
Giuseppe P
Exceptional view
"Wonderful location for families, with a nice swimming pool and an exceptional view on the Mediterranean."
Perfect location
"The apartment was very clean and you could feel comfortable there. The location is perfect for excursions of all kinds and the dream beaches are in the immediate vicinity. The contact person on site had always an open ear and was very helpful as the rest of the team :-) "
Heerlijke !
"Heerlijke tijd gehad. Warm welkom mbv een heerlijke cake, saki en een bloemetje. Keurig schoonmaak team. Koffieset apparaat, toaster en haardrooger waren aanwezig. we genoten van het strand en het itialaans restaurant in Kalamaki. De plaatsen Chania en agio Maria waren wandelend langs de kust/strand bereikbaar, een heerlijk tocht"
Wonderful sea Views
"The apartment is very smart, bright and big enough for 6 people, it was also very useful the private bathroom in one of the bedrooms, to ensure more privacy to the couple sleeping there. I liked in particular the terraces with a wonderful view on the sea and how they were furnished. We had a Great stay !"
The Enersens
Friendly owners welcomed us with cake and Raki!
"Friendly owners that welcomed us with cake and raki. Clean rooms, nice view, pool right outside the door and walking distance to shops and beach."
Michele and friends
Proprietari gentilissimi
"Proprietari gentilissimi, appartamento in buone condizioni proprio di fronte la piscina, con una bella terrazza. Davvero ottima la vista. Posizione strategica perchè sia vicino le spiagge più belle dell'isola, che vicino la bella città di Chania e l'animata Platanias. Ci tornerei sicuramente."
Merci à Rouladina
"Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet appartement qui correspond bien au description donnée ainsi que les prestations les propriétaires sont accueillants l'appartement est bien entretenu ainsi que la piscine et aussi bien situé pour pouvoir visiter toute la côte ouest de Chania nous aurons un grand plaisir d'y retourner dans que je conseil à d'autres. Encore merci à Rouladina et son mari pour leur chaleureux accueil à très bientôt "
Wonderful Apartment
"The description of the place is very accurate. It is a wonderful location with peace and quiet, shopping for necessities nearby, beach close by and lots of great restaurants in the neighbourhood. We felt very welcome and were even greeted with homemade cake, olive Oil, Wine and raki in the apartment. It was our second time there and we very much hope to come back next year. ”"
Vi har haft en fantastisk ferie i Stalos.
"Vi har haft en fantastisk ferie i Stalos. Lejligheden var fin og meget rummelig og med en fantastisk udsigt fra terrassen. Beliggenheden er fin - rolige omgivelser og alligevel tæt på alting. Dog er den lidt svær at finde, når man ankommer. Lejligheden var ren og veludstyret. Servicen var i top og Dimitri og Manolis er meget imødekommende og venlige. Vi er en familie med 2 voksne børn, så vi var i alt 4 voksne i lejligheden. Translation from Danish: :We have had a great holiday in Stalos. The apartment was nice and very spacious and with a great view from the terrace. The location is fine - quiet setting, yet close to everything. Yet it is a little hard to find when you arrive. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The service was top notch and Dimitri and Manolis are very welcoming and friendly. We are a family with 2 adult children, so we had a total of 4 adults in the apartment."
Richard and Anne Ansell
good standard, good position with a lovely sea view
"FREELANCE - excellent service and would use again ROULADINA APARTMENTS - good standard, good position with a lovely sea view, clean and well maintained, very friendly owners, great pool and poolside area. We could not have been more pleased. KATO STALOS - good number of well stocked mini markets which suited our needs very well, very helpful car hire company 5 mins from apartment, numerous places to eat - a particular favourite being Kimatogi. Bus to Chania cheap and only a 15 minute journey. A quiet resort with a nice beach which again suited us perfectly. CRETE - best Greek island we have visited and we loved the combination of fantastic beaches and mountains. People incredibly friendly and helpful. Highlights for us were, in order: BALOS BEACH CLIMBING GINGILOS ELAFONISI BEACH BOTANICAL GARDENS CHANIA OLD TOWN - favourite taverna was XANI. Hope to book with you again in the future. Best wishes Richard and Anne Ansell"
Austen Potter
Very friendly place
"nice apartment, very clean excellent service and very friendly great place to explore the west side of Crete"
Gavin Buckner
Enjoyable holiday!
"We have stayed on many Greek islands and this accommodation is up there with the best. Clean and spacious and a great shower over a bath that was ideal for our 3 year old. The owners were very friendly and even gave us some home made olive oil which was nice. Very peaceful location and pool. Other people staying there all seemed to have been here before which was good as they gave us some local info. We had a car for the week so went to Chania a couple of times for lunch and explored the many beaches along the coast. We like to eat at different restaurants every night and I will say there was not a massive choice in reasonable walking distance so we ventured to Platanis a few nights (would recommend the olive tree). Overall a great holiday that offers a bit of everything."
Pam Wilcox
apartment clean and spacious
"To be honest we were at first disappointed with the location. The apartments are situated in a suburban area close to a long sprawl of bars/minimarkets/tourist shops. However, there are some lovely places at the west end of the island. Chania, of course, and we can recommend the botanical gardens near Fournes where you wander around a hillside planted with plants from different parts of the world along with more familiar Mediterranean species. Beaches we liked included Loutraki on the Akrotiri peninsula and Falasarna on the west coast - there are loads more - and the inland scenery is stunning. The apartment itself was clean and spacious, and the kitchen better provided with crockery, utensils etc than most holiday lets so catering at home was easy. For eating out, we recommend Triana (on the right of the road down to the shops and beach); good Cretan food and Eve, the waitress, is delightful. The apartment owner, Dimitra, welcomed us with cake and wine, and stopped by to make sure we didn't need anything and for a chat from time to time during our stay without being intrusive. "
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 "
Michael Briggs
"Excellent. Really handy for the pool if you have little ones. It enabled us to keep an ear/eye on her while she was asleep while we chilled out on the terrace/ verranda. "
David Westley
5 visits, still love Rouladina
"We have been to Rouladina about 5 times now - love it; Dimitra and Manolis are treasures, Stalos and Chania are wonderful. "
Julia Allan
Nice cake !!
"Great location, wonderful owners"
Alan Harrison
"The apartments were great and the owners were fantastic. We had a great time and every aspect of the holiday that Freelance were involved with went completely according to plan"
"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" "
Anthony Goad
Great apartment
"What a great apartment. Greeted with drinks and cake by a friendly owner. Everything needed was in the apartment. Comfortable beds, great pool and nearby shops and restaurants. You need a car to experience the full delights of this island but the local rep gives great ideas of places to visit. "
Mr D Elks
"A Fantastic holiday we were made to feel very welcome by the owners."
Westley Family
"The holiday was really great and the owners of Rouladina, Dimitra and Manolis are a lovely couple. Having already been to Rouladina before we are already planning on returning in 2006."
Cook family
"We had a lovely holiday in excellent accommodation. The hosts gave us a very warm welcome, with home made cake and raki! Our local representative Diane booked us onto half day cycle tour at short notice - which we thoroughly enjoyed and recommend. Also recommend a visit to Lake Kourna. Local tavernas all very friendly with plenty of good food. We will definitely book with Freelance again."

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.
