Located in Kato Galatas, a 5-minute walk from Kalamaki Beach and 600 yards from Glaros Beach, Rea's Sea House offers an outdoor swimming pool and air conditioning. Big thanks to the hosts - Yanni and Georgia - for the excellent place to stay they prepared for us. From the first time we've met at the day of arrival till the end of our stay everything was great. Villa was so comfortable to accommodate four of us (two adults and two kids) and very well equipped. It has everything you need for perfect vacation - enough space for four people, kitchen equipment, air conditioning in all rooms, well operated wi-fi, satellite TV including Russian channels, bed lining and towels change every four days, outside terrace with foldaway sunshade, barbeque area and swimming pool in the garden. Located in the quiet area with no noise. Walking distance to several good restaurants. With the car all Chania part of Crete including Balos and Elafonissi as well as Cretan brewery and small cozy beaches are close to you.
Surrounded by olive trees, Villa Vallia - Villa Marina is 2625 feet from Kalamaki Beach and features a private pool, furnished sun terrace and lush garden. Villa Marina was beautifully decorated and clean. The pool was also kept clean. The big balcony was nice. We appreciated the homemade cake, wine and fruits we got extra.
Located in Kato Galatas, Balito Apartments is less than a mile from the blue sea and is close to the traditional village of Galatas, many eateries and supermarkets. This is a great place to stay at when you’re in Crete. The hotel is located between Chania centrum and Platanias with just 10-15 minutes car ride to both places. It is recommended to have a car when staying in Crete but it’s absolutely no problem without. The bus station is right outside the hotel and another one down the road. There is a beautiful beach just down the road about 10 minute walk from the hotel along with other beaches within 20-35 minutes walking distance from the hotel. There are restaurants and grocery shops not far from the hotel and a couple travel agencies that arrange trips to all the famous places on the island. We stayed 12 days in this beautiful hotel. George and Jennifer are wonderful hosts that were very welcoming and helpful, and made the check- in and check- out process so easy. The rooms are just like the pictures, very clean and spacious with everything you need and they provide daily cleaning and change of towels etc. We highly recommend this place and will definitely stay here when we come back to Crete. Thank you so much to the whole Balito crew!
Offering a seasonal outdoor swimming pool and a garden, Villa Armonia Chania is located in Kato Galatas, not far from Glaros Beach and Kalamaki Beach. We love everything, very spacious and clean accommodation and good location not too far from charming Chania's town.
The most relaxing place, secluded and away from hustle and bustle of main promenade. The apartments are in great condition with balconies overlooking either garden or sea. Pool is blissful. There is a great taverna within 5 mins walk, lovely sandy beach is 10mins walk away. Chania is 15mins drive, beautiful port with old town and market. George is every so helpful and advise on everything from best beach to visit, to live music venues and car rental. He goes even so far as to sort it out for you. Can’t get any better.
We chose Kato Galatas because we were holidaying with three teens in our party - two sixteen year old boys and a nineteen year old girl. It fitted the bill really well because the beach and a few lovely restaurants and tavernas are just a walk away, as well as supermarkets, so the younger teens could have some independence in a safe environment. Also, we could jump on the bus to Chania and be there within 15 minutes - the bus stop was right outside our villa. Chania is lively and beautiful and there's plenty to do and see, as well having a massive amount of lovely restaurants to choose from. Taxis back to the villa from Chania never cost more than €9 or €10 Euros.
€2.5 on the national green bus from airpirt to chania town. The city buses are very regular we got the 15 from the square opposite the national bus depot in chania which dropped us near balito our accomodation for €1.70 per person, free for age 6 or under. The times are not on the local bus stop but some of them have a digital readout letting you know how long til the next bus. Get the 21 to chania from the end of the road near the coast. There is a lidl within walking distance with a great beach at the end of the road. Lots of shops and restaurants which all offer similar food. Trips to Samaria gorge or the local waterpark etc can be organised which pick up from your accommodation.
Many restaurants, hotels and tourist shops available. Much of the Greek originality has vanished, sorry! Heavy traffic on the main road and you should head towards Chania or Agia Marina to find better beaches.
Different beaches are near. Big shopping centers like LIDL or Inka are near too or You can use small shops if You want to eat in the hotel. Of course we found taverna with a very taste food too. Galatas s very quite and not crowded. Chania and it's airport is very near.
The location of the place is fine because it is near Chania which is easily and quickly reachable by bus if You do not have a car. There are also nice beaches at walking distance (Stalos, Kalamaki and the best Iguana beach and Agio Apostoli). If You are by car this is an excellent base for exploring West Crete.The bad thing is that there is practically nothing special to be done in the evening, because there are only few shops, but there are a few tavernas and a nice pizzeria- Nesaki where You can eat well. We prefered to go to Chania every evening because it is very near and wonderful.
