Grandes Apartments are located in the eastern part of Crete, on one of the most beautiful and clean beaches, the Kouremenos beach. Their name was derived from islands Grandes, which you can see from the terraces of the apartments deep in the bay.
Kouremenos beach is a long beach with intense alternations from fine pebbles to sand. The sea is very clean, most of its part is sandy and, regardless of the wind speed, you can always swim carefreely since there are no waves to prevent you from doing it.
Grandes Apartments are located just 15 metres from the beach, which allows you to enjoy the sun and sea any time of day you prefer.
Next to the apartments and at the same distance from the sea there is the Grandes restaurant where you can enjoy your breakfast, your coffee, your meal, even your drink late at night. The restaurant serves traditional Cretan cuisine with fresh local ingredients and fresh fish supplied by local fishermen from the nearby bays, exclusively.
Each apartment is about 40 m2 and can accommodate up to 5 people. They have a separate bedroom, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and an open-plan space in which there are two built-in beds that can be used as sofas. All the apartments have large terraces for some rest and relaxation with a view of the sea and the lush garden. There is also a parking space for each apartment. Room cleaning and bed sheets changing is carried out every 3 days.
All the apartments are equipped with:
– Air conditioning
