Esplanade Apartments Chania



Welcome to Hotel Esplanade. The story of this hotel begins in 1960. Back then, my father Michael, emigrated to Canada with an aim. When he was going to return, he would build his own family hotel. Having been born and raised abroad I know how important it is for someone to feel comfortable at his place of staying. So, I always try to do my best for my guests and make them feel like home.

The Location
Esplanade Apartments is located in Kalathas and the Akrotiri peninsula. The area of ​​Akrotiri is suitable for couples and families with children who want a quiet, comfortable, seaside stay in an apart hotel near Chania town with an easy access to the airport and highway so that they can explore the other beauties of Chania prefecture and Crete.

The beaches
In Akrotiri, within 5 to 10 minutes by car, there are many different beaches depending on the wishes of each guest. Almost all have a blue flag.
Beaches for families and couples are the beaches of Kalathas, Marathi and Loutraki. The latter, though smaller than the rest, is prefered by the locals as it combines a calm family atmosphere and a lifestyle for young people.
Also, there is the beach of Stavros where the famed scene of "Sirtaki" was filmed from the multiple awarded film "Zorbas the Greek". Finally, about 20 minutes away from the property by car, is the small, hidden beach with the blue and crystal clear waters, Seitan Limani beach, a point that definitely deserves a visit for anyone coming to Chania.

The area has several small family restaurants and tavernas near the beaches and at the main city of ​​Akrotiri peninsula, Kounoupidiana.
