Our spacious 4 bedroomed apartment provided rather more accommodation than was necessary for just two people but welcome nevertheless. Cleanliness and linen were faultless, with maid service each day, except Sunday Patio doors on the ground floor opened onto a magnificent swimming pool, immaculately clean and most welcome in the heat of the day. The owner, Emmanuel, and his wife,...

Perfect for a week or two of relaxation. Great beaches within ten minutes drive. Chania town about twenty minutes by car. Apartments are very clean with air conditioned bedrooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

We just checked out of Villa Alexander after our week stay in Crete. The view first thing in the morning is quite fabulous, almost too surreal. After quite a few hours of searching for a place that will suit our needs for our daughter's Sweet 16 birthday trip, Villa Alexander was our winner. (2 bedroom villa) We opted for something...

My friend and I stayed at Villa Alexander over Eastern Orthodox Easter and had the best experience. We each had our own bed, and we had a kitchen and a living room. The wifi was good on the lower level apartments, but in the higher apartments it was a little spotty but still worked. Alexandros was very prompt with communication...

Our weekend in Crete was wonderful! Alexander was so much help to us, he told us the best places to go and ordered us a taxi whenever need be! He even helped us order pizza that was delivered to our door step! He was very quick to respond with emails whenever we needed something (like the bus schedules or the...

The apartments are full equipped, spacious, with a great view. The location is great to start small day trips in Crete. It is calm enough to get relax but also close to Chania in case of evening activities are needed. I totally recommend it!

After having spent some days with my family in the Western part of Chania, we planned to stay in the Akrotiri peninsula during the last week of our stay in Crete. The Villa Alexander is the perfect retreat for exploring the sights of this part of the island. Within ten minutes drive we reached the beaches of Kalathas, Tersanas, Stavros,...

Me and my friends spent a week at Villa Alexander and we really liked it! The staff was very helpful and kind. We stayed in a room for 6 people and it was big enough for all of us: there were also two showers and three toilets, so that was nice too. The little kitchen was nice, because there's no...

We were very excited one we arrived at Villa Alexander! I wasn't sure what to expect. After messaging Alex a few times to get directions and just to help myself feel more at ease, I was blown away with my experience! His description on how to find the place was spot on we found it with no issues. He welcomed...

We've already came back from 10 days in Villa Alexander. It was wonderfull time. Really nice beach 15min walk away, Chania Town 13 km away so you should rent a car but you can also visit Chania by local bus. It has a really good, peaceful and quiet location, 2 markets are 5 mins away by walk, beautiful Stavros beach...
