“Hidden gem in Cretan countryside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Had an excellent stay here..everything was great. The two bedroom apartment was spacious, comfortable and very clean and we had a lovely sunset sea view from the balcony. The pool was large and warm with plenty of sunbeds. Excellent pool bar, which was frequently open quite late, with friendly and helpful staff. We also tried the taverna, which had really good food, although a slightly limited choice, and a great sunset view. There was a mini market within walking distance, as well as a few tavernas in the village. There was a small beach with a nice taverna nearby - it would be quite a steep walk back up the hill though. Kalathas beach was great and only a short drive away. It was about 20 minutes drive into Chania and close to the airport. Stavros was a 5 minute drive and had some nice tavernas. Overall an excellent place to stay - we would stay again.

Stayed here last week for a week in the sun. Received a warm welcome from Georgio & Maria who
were perfect hosts. The atmosphere was calm & relaxing, we could not have wished for a better location. Maria's cooking was brilliant (authentic greek) & very reasonably priced served in a beautiful setting. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone seeking a quiet place in perfect surroundings. Special mention to Michael in the pool bar.

Room Tip: We had a two bedroomed apartment (first floor) overlooking the pool & garden & were very sat...

Stayed here while in between a cruise and heading back home on Ryan air. We had a 2 bedroom apt and it was lovely. Air conditioning helped during the heat of the day, the pool was lovely to lounge by and it was easy to find not too far from the airport. The food was excellent! We had a great lunch and were totally stuffed on local cuisine for a fraction of what we pay in Germany. Karaoke by the pool/bar Saturday evening was a hoot. Americans should remember that in typical European places, soap is not provided, but with local grocery stores nearby we found everything we needed with ease (including some excellent red wines!) The mattresses were hard, but you can't have everything in paradise right?

Room Tip: All of the rooms probably have good views, but ours was mostly of pool, though we could see the ocea...

I absolutely adored staying with the family who owned and ran Ternasas Village, The location and gardens are stunning, beautiful pool area, my apartment was large ,spotlessly clean, and split level, very quiet at night. Lovely restaurant area where you can watch the sunsets in the evening and delicious home made cooking by Marie the families Grandmother. Within easy reach of Chania, bus stop only a very short walk away and bus fares are very cheap.Many families I met on this my first visit were on return visits. It is lovely and safe for children who seemed to be having the time of their lives around the pool. I too felt very safe in the more quiet and select part of Crete as a lone female traveller and could not have been made more welcome by Georgios the owner and his family who also ran the bar making delicious cocktails to your own taste. I have recommended Ternasas Village to all my friends. Not a place to go if you want wild nightlife and Clubs and the reason I chose it.

i've visited tersanas village 5 times now, and i would go there a million times more, i've been going there since i was a child so i know how welcoming and friendly the people are there, including all the people staying there too. The food is delicious and the woman who cooks it has even made her own recipe book. It is such a beautiful place in a beautiful area with breathtaking sunsets every night. It is very close to the most idealic beaches towns. the apartments are simplistic in a very sophisticated and refreshing way, i can honestly say i wish i lived there!

Nice pace to stay , the owners are very pleasant and the food in the onsite restaurant is very good and good value as well , no meal for the 2 of us cost more than £25 including wine. The rooms were cleaned every day apart from Sunday. There are 2 other restaurants in the village, The Ramblers was all so very good value with a good atmosphere, and it had an English chef and had a menu to match.

Down sides is you will defiantly need a car to get out and about as it is stuck out on its own, The rooms are basic with just a shower attachment in the bath, so you could not stand up and have a shower, and you have to pay extra for AC.

We have stayed at the Tersanas Village Apartments before and had another lovely holiday here in June. The apartments are huge (we stayed in a 2 bedroom split level apartment with 2 children, which was really a small house) with lovely views. The apartments themselves are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The complex itself is small and well maintained, with a good sized clean swimming pool where there is plenty of room and sunbeds. The whole complex is very well run with friendly staff who speak good English and they look after you very well. I couldn't fault anything - it was perfect and we will return again. The on-site taverna is fabulous and serves fresh traditional food, which makes the whole package perfect for us with children.
I think to sum the place up, it is very well run and managed so that you feel valuled and well looked after, the staff are lovely and the place itself is spotlessly clean. Just what we want from a family holiday.
