Akrotiri Chanion

There is a little village on the Akrotiri peninsula in NW Crete just 12 km east of the old Cretan capital of Chania. In this quiet rural setting, there is a small group of self-catering apartments known as Tersanas Village apartments. Built in 1991 they are owned and run by the Pantzelioudakis family together with the nearby taverna. The family has built up a well-deserved reputation for their friendliness, helpfulness and the provision of a relaxing atmosphere in which you can enjoy your holiday. The apartments are set on level ground on the side of a hill. This  location affords spectacular and panoramic views both to the sea and the mountains and from this unique vantage point you can view the most magnificent sunsets-hence the name of our restaurant!
This picturesque location also ensures that our guests can have peace and privacy when they need, yet still have the convenience of a large bustling town like Chania within a 20 minutes' drive. With a pool and taverna so ideally situated and a little beach just a stroll away, you may decide to stay in our hotel for the whole of your holiday! Should you feel like trying something more active there is plenty to do at the Akrotiri and the surrounding area, plus of course the longest gorge in Europe!
The Apartments are furnished to a high standard with traditional painted furniture and all of them have at least one terrace or balcony with their own tables and chairs, and a separate bathroom with shower, washbasin and WC.
All bed linen, hand and bath towels are provided and changed twice weekly.
All apartments are air-conditioned and TV equipped and small safe for your valuables.
The pool has an adjacent shallow area for children. It is reserved exclusively for the use of guests staying at Tersanas Village. Sun beds and parasols can be found around the pool for the use of guests, and there is a small bar serving drinks, snacks and ice cream.
The apartments are surrounded by landscaped gardens that have been planted with a rich variety of trees, shrubs and flowers. These include mimosa, fig, oleander, hibiscus, palms, the ever-present olive, begonias and bougainvillea. There is also wild thyme, fennel and rosemary growing nearby and in the early spring the irises, gladioli, sun roses, and many more wild flowers fill the local pastures and mountainsides.
The Sunset Taverna is very handily situated across the garden from the pool and is open every day for lunch and dinner. It is known for its high standard of authentic Greek cuisine. It is a popular place to eat at the Akrotiri with both holiday makers and local residents. At Tavern's kitchen, traditional Cretan dishes are freshly prepared each day by Maria according to her own family's recipes using local products. There is a wide selection of dishes to choose from for both meat eaters and vegetarians.
Tersanas beach with its little pink snack bars is about a ten minutes' walk down the hill. It is sandy, safe and clean. Also within easy traveling distance are Blue beach and Stavros and Kalathas beaches. A few minutes' walk away is the little village of Horafakia with two more tavernas, a small supermarket from which you can purchase all the essentials, a bakery and a garage. Here you can catch the local bus that makes a round trip between Chania and Stavros.
