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 6, 1 bedroom 

On the second floor and with entrance door into a small hallway with Double bedroom to one side and adjacent full bathroom with shower.

Beyond the hallway, the spacious open plan living room (A/C) has a kitchen to one side, whilst to the front, full length patio windows lead out to a good sized balcony overlooking the pool and of course enjoying stunning seaviews. 

Apartments 5 and 6 each have private front balconies with  full 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.

Location of Rouladina Apt 6
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!

Ideal location
"Apartment spacious and clean.Well equipped kitchen for the occasional meal in. Pool towels provided also. Access to washing machine with iron and ironing board in apartment.Good for long stays or if you want to travel light........ Well positioned for access to beach,mini markets,Tavernas and bus stops. Owners Dimitra and Manolis lovely people,very obliging. Lucky to sample Dimitra's cooking. Twice she gave us a dish of "Horta"(a mountain or village green similar to spinach cooked with zucchini and potato and then drizzled with fresh lemon).Delicious.Its one of our favourite dishes. Was also given some oranges(which made a large amount of fresh juice) and some cucumbers.Thank you very much Dimitra. Internet a bit intermittent but only to be expected,not an issue. We have been visting Crete twice a year for many years and have covered a vast amount of the island. Like a slower pace now so no longer hire a car. Chania has captured our hearts so we like being handy for bus stop or to get a Taxi for 12 euros. Rouladina( or Casa Loma also known as) situated away from the main road so quiet just the way we like it.You will hear a cockerel or two or the odd dog barking but as we say that comes with "The Territory".............. Diana organised a jeep trip to a local Winery.Paid by credit card over the phone in room.Most enjoyable.Thanks again Freelance for another relaxing holiday.Top marks all round."
Gillian Boothroyd
A truely enjoyable couple of weeks...
"The accommodation itself certainly lived up to the 'blurb' being spacious, well maintained with all necessary equipment and, for us, ideally positioned - elavated thereby giving a clear sea view from the balcony whilst genuinely a mere ten minutes walking distance from an uncrowded sandy beach. Awaiting for us in the appartment on arrival was water and cake in the fridge together with wine and rakki on the table - the rakki went immediately into the freezer compartment! As Manolis and Dimitra [the owners] were away visiting we were welcomed on their behalf by Dina the younger daughter. This 'personal touch' remained a feature throughout our stay especially when there was a 'problem' and we were really looked after - including delivery of a bag of fresh produce from Manolis's garden. Whilst we hired a car for four days to tour the local [Smart Cars by Maria's for value and friendly approach] the pattern of many days revolved around a leisurely breakfast, a walk to a sunlounger on the beach at the bottom of the road, back to the appartment around 1 o'clock for a cool down swim in the lovely pool set amongst colourful shrubs and a light lunch. Possibly after a siesta return to the beach until sixish then back to Rouldina for a shower and beer. As there was a well equipped kitchen we were able to cook and enjoy a decent evening meal whilst enjoying the view from the balcony. However, more often than not we ate out our favourite taverna turning out to be Kimatogi - in part for the setting on the beach close to the waves and excellent food at reasonable prices but just as importantly the impressive table service provided by Yanis together with his impressive knowlege of the area and advice freely given of places to go... If time permitted one could go on about such niceties as the range of novels held in the reception at Rouladina which together with our Kindles meant we could read for hours each day - but now we're back in the real world!!! Mind must end with a note about how great Freelance crew have been and in particular Diane who's based in Crete - effective, always helpful with the best interests of the 'client' always at the forfront..... "
Rouladina July 2012
" Another relaxing stay at the Rouladina Apt 6. I cannot fault this accommodation ,up the hill just far enough away from the busy main road. Bus links west and east excellent. Chania Harbour nice but expensive we spent most nights at Platania plenty night life. Bus there will cost you 2.40 euro there each and a taxi back about 8 euro but there are buses running late as well. We found the beach in front of the Seaside Hotel a great place for sunbeds and the couple who run the outside bar really nice. To get there walk down the hill turn left at Maria,s cross the road and walk about 400 yards turn right at the Seaside Hotel and you walk to the beach. This is the forth time we have holidayed here so must be OK. "

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! "
Elizabeth Tipping
"Our 2nd Freelance holiday, absolutely great, thanks!"
MR & MRS McEwan
"Thank you for the excellent service which we had from your company, we will most definetly be going back to the Rouladina.Close to the beach, with good bus links to Chania and very friendly people.The owners of the appartments were very nice to us thanks all. "
Mr Senior
"My wife and I enjoyed our first visit to Crete and look forward to returning in the future - your company offers and delivers an excellent service."
Mrs Wall
"We had an excellent holiday and were very impressed with the accommodation and with Freelance Holidays."
Mr F Ashfield
"This is our second visit to Rouladina, first visit was in May 2006. We plan to return via Freelance in 2008. Very impressed with arrangements and accommodation."
barry and ann painter
"We are regular attenders at Rouladena and love it so much we have been back for six years running. Dimitra and Minoli are lovely people and we would thoroughly recommend it. The reps were also great and helpful. As you can imagine after six years we had begun to make a few friends of the locals. best wishes to everyone. "
John Steger
"We all had a great time the apartments have amazing sea views and a great swimming pool, the owners were charming and helpful, we loved the village of upper Stalos and think the Taverna there "O'Leventes" is the best in Crete !!!"
