Athena Apartments is a beautiful resort in the North of Crete, nestled between the party town of Malia and the more laid back area of Hersonissos. It is in the tranquil Stalis area, and is set within picture perfect, well manicured gardens. The Mediterranean climate means beautiful weather all year round, and in the summer it really sizzles. The resort is also a quick journey away from the picturesque golden beaches and calm, warm waters of the Northern Crete shoreline.
The rooms themselves vary and include studio apartments and family rooms with separate bedrooms. They also come with a kitchen and balcony that offers stunning garden views or a nice view of the pool. The rooms are all air conditioned so you can cool off from the sweltering summer heat. The hotel is replete with a number of other amenities, including a 24 hour reception, currency exchange, a well stocked bar and parasols for lounging near the pool. There is also Wi-Fi available for the convenience of guests.
The nearby towns of Malia and Hersonissos offer plenty of places to explore. Both have a wide range of restaurants and bars nearby, with Malia famous for its vibrant and exciting nightlife – if you want to let your hair down on Crete there really isn’t a better place to be. The strip has a number of bars and nightclubs that draw in numerous locals and tourists throughout the spring and summer months, offering a wide number of drinks deals.
For the more culturally minded, or those who want to escape the hubbub, Northern Crete has some of the most interesting and diverse history in the world, having been continuously occupied for over four thousand years. Take a trip to one of the many monuments, museums and ruins, or even just stroll around and look at the natural beauty of the rugged mountain landscape.
