Zorbas Apartments**+ (Stavros) 55 Apartments

Much of the filming of Zorba the Greek took place at Stavros so these apartments are aptly named. Stavros is at the end of Akrotiri peninsula, 14 km from Chania and sits in a small sandy bay, with the apartments across the bay from the village. There are 55 apartments spread around on this 20,000 square metre complex in pretty bungalows linked by paths, all set in spacious grounds with verdant hedges and shrub in between offering a surprising amount of privacy. The sea comes right up to the property on to a small sandy beach and there is a large swimming pool, 250 sqm, a children’s pool, a reception, hich provides service a few hours in the day, and a beach bar. Ideal for a family with active young children. Sun umbrellas and sun beds around the pool are free of charge. Although there is a bus service three times each day, in the summer, to Chania it would be somewhat limiting without a car. Further tavernas and shops can be found in Stavros village. It is possible to have two studios, with a connecting door, forming an apartment for up to 6 people.
