#1 of 3 Specialty lodging in Nea Kydonia
ELEA is located at Makris Tichos, one of the most beautiful areas of Chania, only 4km far from the town. The first characteristics that gain visitors are the tasty decoration and the feeling of homely care. The four most beautiful beaches of Chania are only 400m away. Except for the beaches, there is a beautiful swimming pool that can cool guests during hot summer days. Each apartment, which was renovated in 2011, has a big modern and well-equipped kitchen with lively colors, big cupboards and a sofa bed for one person. It also has a big balcony with great view to the swimming pool and the bar-restaurant which is surrounded by olive and banana trees. In the area there are two big super-markets and several restaurants (300m). There is well-organized transportation to the town (every 10 minutes) and the bus stop is only 300m away. We have created a peaceful place for relaxation and calmness and we are

Lovely location in a dip with plenty of parking! Very pleasant and helpful owners we there on hand if required during the day! The property is in a dip about 150M away from a very busy road, but you could not hear the traffic noise, only the occasional conversation between the neighbours dogs!

This was in a great location as it was close the the beaches and the harbor of Chania but far enough away that you got away from the crowds. Many restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The apartments offer a pool, bar and small restaurant. The room was clean and George and his team were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a two bedroomed apartment for 2 weeks in September 2019. Spacious apartment but quite basic. Typical Greek electrics! Air conditioning included which is great, wifi too but this was a bit hit and miss, downside was no cleaning whatsoever!! Never even had the paper bins in the toilets emptied and neither were we supplied with any replacement plastic bags to do it ourselves. No clean towels or bedding either in 2 weeks. They do provide a washing service for your personal laundry for 5 euros. Apparently extra cleaning was available for another 10 euros. The bath was ridiculously small. My husband who isn't very flexible found it difficult to get clean. He's unable to use a cubicle shower because he cannot bend or twist in a small space and found the bath quite awkward to get in and out of. Having said that the apartments are set in beautiful grounds with fruit trees and plenty of seating areas. The pool was great too and we could often get a swim all by ourselves, there was also plenty of hot water whenever we needed it!! Situation is good. 10-15 minutes walk to some lovely beaches and Lidl a walk away!! Overall, the accommodation has potential to be excellent but is let down by the lack of cleaning services which I think is more than adequately paid for in the rental cost of the apartments. Why full sized baths weren't installed in the first place I really cannot understand as the bathroom was a decent size.

We had a wonderful fortnight at Elea The apartment was very clean and spacious with a lovely view through the olive trees to the mountains on one side and the sea on the other The pool is large for the area and mostly quiet (with a life guard on duty ) There are a lot of shady spots in the garden if you want to get out of the sun which are so welcome in August The bar / snack bar is very useful and they are always happy to taylor make anything you want The beach is 400mt away and its a lovely sandy one with good snorkeling plus two beach bars, there is also 2 more beaches within 200mt Good tavernas and two supermarkets very close plus you can get the bus to Chania next to the beach (buy your tickets before you catch the bus 1.20€ in advance 2.0€ on the bus for each journey) A lovely holiday was had by all three of us and we are already looking at returning

We have been to this area a few times now but not to the Elea Apartments. We arrived late in the evening from the airport which is about 30-35 minutes drive away. We had been informed previously that the reception would be closed at this time of night by email but on arrival a note was on the front gate entrance of apartments telling us number and where apt. was and a note on apt. door. Helpful. The apartment was a nice size, well equipped for your needs, separate bedroom with twin beds and air-con, a modern bathroom with shower, living/kitchen area with table and chairs, single bed with cushions. Kitchen had a microwave, fridge, two hot plates,sink, electric kettle and toaster and utensils. You can do basic cooking, we did a spag bol which worked out well. Room safe in the bedroom. Air-con and safe plus room tax included in our price, very reasonable. The following morning we met the owners and family and staff who were very nice friendly and helpful. The area is quiet apart from a couple of dogs barking at night in the distance. Pool area is nice, grassed with olive trees and other plants. Apartments around pool have a nice outlook. Front and rear balconies, with table and chairs.Terraces for Grd.floor. Bar/Restaurant is nice, they do different food to eat here although we didn’t eat food here but had drinks,with nibbles, again reasonable. There are various restaurants nearby 10-15 minutes walk away, more restaurants a bit further. Two big supermarkets 15-20 minutes walk away, across the road from one another. Other shops nearby as well. Various beaches 25-30 walk away. Bus stops on main road to and from Chania Town. A couple of travel shops for trips out and about also nearby. A very nice stay indeed, If I remember their names are Mikailis and Irene, thank you for our stay hope to see you again. They are also doing there bit for recycling. Green Bin,Blue Bin,Yellow Bin.
