Near the town of Chania, just 9 miles to the north, lies the sea-side village of Stavros in an area called Akrotiri. Stavros is world-famous for being the filming location of the critically acclaimed film ‘Zorba the Greek’ based in a novel by famous author Nikos Kazantzakis.
Hotel Zorbas, named after the hero of the novel, is just a few meters from a small sandy beach in 30,000 square meters of private land. Facilities at the hotel include a tennis court, outdoor chessboard and sea-water swimming pool for adults with a separate children’s pool. Zorbas Hotel’s playgrounds in the gardens are a safe location for the children to play. The gardens are well-tended and contain a wide variety of carefully selected flowers, herbs and trees which; provide shelter for the myriads of birds which nest in the hotel grounds.
Undoubtedly, what remains unforgettable is the wide, unobstructed view of sea all the way to the horizon setting the scene for picturesque sunsets which can be enjoyed from the privacy of each room’s covered veranda.
Your stay at Hotel Zorbas is guaranteed to be pleasant and you will likely find yourselves visiting every year, like many guests do, and recommending them to your friends.
