We got the bus from Heraklion-chania and got off at souda a 12 euro taxi from the apartments. We booked directly with Anna over email and had no problems with communication and she gave us detailed information on how to get there and was extremely helpful. The apartments were beautiful, the view from our THREE balconies was spectacular in the...

We booked here at the last minute from the UK via Freelance Holidays , who are superb, on the recommendation of friends. We were nervous it wouldn't live up to expectations after looking at other reviews but needn't have worried. The location is excellent, 2km up in the hills from the coast. The views out over Souda bay are wonderful....

We had precise requirements for our two weeks in Crete -- a clean, quiet self catering apartment in a village away from the conCrete. Aptera ticked all these boxes. The apartment complex is immaculately wrll maintained, the staff are really lovely people, the location is superb. Inevitably there are one or two features that were less than perfect. The apartments...

This was our third stay at Aptera Apartments, and they are still an absolute delight. The setting, the views, the quality accommodation, the grounds, the pool, the location - everything is perfect. An addition this year was a safe in the apartment - always a good idea. The care that Anna and her family take over the rooms, the grounds...

A twenty-minute walk from the small village of Aptera, and en route to the ancient Roman ruins. Stumbled across these apartments by accident four years ago, and have been going ever since. Quality modern apartments, with balconies looking out over the bay of Hania. Everything you need, including a superb pool. The owner Anna loos after you extremely well -...

All the previous reviews have said it all, great location, great scenery, great pool. Cleanliness all good and the walk down to the local restaurants made it even better. But the bed is so hard......and the pillow. The shower/shower curtain is extremely small and is like showering in a plastic bag! Otherwise had a fun and memorable time in this...

Very nice apartments, spacious, very clean & quiet and 3 private balconies. Relaxing atmosphere, nice swimming pool. Good view over Souda bay a small grocery store, 2 restaurants and a pub on the nearby main crossroads / village. If any points for improvement: a little better mattresses would really make it great. Anna is a very welcoming and accommodating host!

We spent two weeks in Aptera Apartments for the 5th time since 1997. It is still the most stunning location in the whole area. The views down Souda Bay are spectacular. The ancient city of Aptera is 5 minutes walk down the road. Most nights we walked down to the village for our meal. Nothing beats the walk back up...

I've travelled throughout Crete for a number of years, and stayed at some of the most highly-rated properties according to Lonely Planet, Booking.com & Trip Advisor (Palazzo Duca, Hania - Stella's Traditional Apartments, Kato Zakros, Argoulias Apartments, Tzermiado - The Blue House, Loutro). However, the Aptera Apartments are bester than any of them - by miles. I can not understand...

So glad we found this beautiful spot. Our one-bedroomed apartment was spacious and immaculate, with three balconies, two of which had fantastic views over Souda Bay, with the added bonus of superb sunsets over Chania. The apartment complex is located on a quiet rural hillside (walking distance to Ancient Aptera) and the peace and serenity was "disturbed" only by the...
