What makes this Villa unique
The location of Pelagos is perfect, with a beautifully relaxing view. It is also close to everything but at the same time, far enough from the noise and hassle. We promise you will love the serene afternoon time just before the sun sets.

What an exceptional stay at Pelagos!
We were a family of 4, with 2 kids of 11 and 14 years old. Apartment very very clean and well equipped. Well-located, a 5-minute walk to Platania’s main street and from a reasonable driving distance to all western beaches. The owners were very generous of their time, providing the best advices that made our stay in Crete won-der-ful. Maya and her little puppies will be missed from our daughters. We would highly recommend Pelagos.
Fabulous accommodation, home from home in a stunning setting!
We had read lots of reviews of different properties before booking our stay at Pelagos, and we hadn't necessarily decided to stay in Platanias when visiting Crete - I had searched for 'Chania and around' - but the reviews swayed our decision and we're so glad they did! We have just returned home from 6 days there and we really didn't want to leave. The apartment played a huge role in the success of our holiday, the set up is beautiful - think Scandi in a Mediterranean setting with a fabulous view! Apartment was immaculate, beautiful interior and exterior - two outside seating areas, incredibly comfortable beds, beautiful bathroom, everything furnished and kitted out to a really high standard and well thought out when designed. The compact kitchen area had everything I needed to cater for a family of 4, we ate two meals a day at 'home', sometimes three, and I could use the hob and the oven. There are communal washing and drying facilities and the outdoor pool is beautifully set in the rock face, with a view of the sea. The apartments are private and tranquil, there were other guests but if felt as if we were on our own.
I think what really takes Pelagos into the 5-star category is the hospitality and friendliness of Marianne, the owner and manager of Pelagos. She is so pleasant and thoughtful, she was keen to help us with anything we needed and her recommendations for where to go with our two small boys were priceless (Falasarna beach and Ravdoucha bay for snorkelling, out of this world - next time we will get to Elafonissi Beach too!). If you are used to going self-catering, you are used to taking washing up liquid/tea towels/cloths/beach towels/pegs etc- we needn't have, as Marianne has everything already and if it's not in your room, you can almost guarantee she has it elsewhere and is happy for you to use it. Our boys borrowed games from the communal 'stash' and there are books and beach things to use too. Our car hire was excellent value and problem-free, we used the company which Marianne recommended. Take away menus, guide books, pamphlets for day trips - it's all there.
We will definitely return to Crete, as there is so much to see and it is a stunning island, but we will also definitely return to Pelagos Holiday Appartments, as I can't imagine finding anywhere which suits our family so well, where we know we are going to have a real 'break', in quality comfort and a beautiful setting.
Thank you so much Marianne!
Clean comfortable apartment with great views close to beach& shops.Friendly English speaking host.
Loved our first experience of Crete made special by our stay at this place.Lovely beach.Easy access to Chania and local excursions.
Amazing views! Helpful host! Quiet and relaxing!
What a beautiful place to base a holiday! We spent 8 days here relaxing and exploring the South-West of Crete, all thanks to the friendly help from Marianne. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to prepare our own meals. I also appreciated the use of Marianne's herbs from the garden! The apartment was light and airy with a balcony upstairs and courtyard downstairs, both with the most amazing views! It is only a short walk down to the shops and Platanias beach, from which we enjoyed a beautiful sunset and lovely swim. Marianne was so helpful as we planned our day's outings; giving us ideas, maps and beach umbrella/mats to use, and recommendations for less touristy places to visit. Pelagos is a very peaceful place to holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the many beautiful beaches and mountain towns. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. The only problem we had was...pulling ourselves away from that view to go and explore!!
Accueil exeptionnel, vue sur mer, beau duplex
Une hôtesse charmante, toujours disponible pour un conseil. Un beau duplex vue sur mer avec terrasse et balcon. Des prestations quasi hôtelières , tout en étant chez soi. Une piscine et la mer à 10 minutes a pied. Super-marches à proximité. Le camp de base idéal et zéro souci pour explorer l'Ouest de la Crete (Gramvoussa, Elafounissi, Hania, les montagnes blanches)
De chouettes vacances !
Nous avons passé une semaine dans cet appartement à Platanias et tout était très bien. Nous avons été parfaitement accueilli. Le logement est récent, très propre et joliment décoré (au niveau de l'équipement de la cuisine, il faudrait peut-être ajouter quelques ustensiles pratiques : ouvre-boîte, éplucheur légumes, plat pour le four, une seconde poêle, pour que tout soit parfait !). La piscine est également très agréable pour se rafraîchir. Marianne est de bons conseils et toujours disponible. Une dame de service vient vider la poubelle chaque jour et fait le ménage complet une fois dans la semaine. L'environnement est très calme et nous pouvons aller dans le village (nombreux restaurants et commerces) ou à la plage en 5/10 minutes à pied. Très pratique ! Location que nous recommandons.
From Pelagos apartments, a walk of less than 10 min (500 m.) will take you to the sandy beach, with clear blue waters (Blue Flag award) or else to the shops and the centre of Platanias.
