Surrounded by a peaceful Mediterranean garden, this modern apartment-complex offers plenty of Greek charm. You won’t find a huge resort packed with guests, but that’s its magic. What you do get is a family-run hotel, designed like a small village, set away from the main road, approximately 300 metres to the seafront, along with the good old fashioned Cretan hospitality.
Our guests love to chill out and relax at Ourania Apartments.
Accommodation at the hotel consists of spacious apartments, suitable for couples and families. And what better way to enjoy the calm surroundings than from the comfort of a lounger? The pool terrace is dotted with sunbeds and parasols, so there’s no need to put your towels down before sunrise. And if you follow the sound of ice cubes clinking into a glass, you’ll find the handy snack bar. Entertainment options include a library, an internet corner (free Wi-Fi) and a pool table where you can show off your skills with a cue. Finally, the friendly staff of Ourania organises live music nights, Greek nights, karaoke nights, bingo/quiz nights on a regular basis.
If ever there were apartments that prove less is certainly more, welcome at Ourania Apartments...
Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and Gouves is a perfect base for those wishing to explore it. Ourania Apartments is easy access to the main road where the frequent bus service can take you along the north coast.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
We visited Ourania apartments in June. Our family of 5 (3 daughters, early teens) had one 2 bed apartment and my dad had a 1 bed. Both were in the older part of the complex but they have great character, were spacious and spotlessly clean. Bins were emptied and towels changed very regularly. We loved everything about our stay. The gorgeous gardens, beautiful, well kept pool area, delicious breakfast every morning as we went b&b, great cocktails, reasonable priced snacks and lunches, friendly staff, friendly cats!
