Stavros

Stavros

Stavros is not a real village but more a conglomeration of houses built in the last three decades and more recently a fair number of small hotels and apartments.

Getting there

 14 km from Chania. A few public buses. It is really a good idea to have your own car if you want to be able to move around easily.

Atmosphere

A quiet place somewhat lacking in atmosphere.

Accommodation

 Nowadays there is a fair bit of choice.

Restaurants

There are only a couple of restaurants in Stavros

Shopping

Minimal but enough to cover your basic daily needs

Nightlife

None

Beach

A very beautiful little bay (this is where the beach scenes in the movie Alexis Zorbas were filmed) as well as a longer, almost deserted sandy beach.

Additional comments

Stavros is worth considering as a base if you want a quiet holiday but it is really best to have a car.
