Stavros is located right on the tip of the peninsula of Akrotiri in a beautiful bay at a distance of 14 km from Chania. Stavros is well-known for its beautiful sandy beaches and the clean, blue sea. It is actually a small bay and a long sandy beach next to it. Stavros had been used as the location for the film Zorba the Greek as it represented the archetypal sleepy fishing village. Facing the mountain where Zorbas of Kakogiannis was filmed. Everyone remembers the scene where Anthony Queen, interpreting the Kazantzakis hero, built a quarry which spectacularly fell apart.
Akrotiri Peninsula lies just 10km away from the main city of Chania. The best thing about Akrotiri is it remains largely untouched by tourism, with quaint little villages nestling close to the coastline or sitting proudly in the hillsides of the peninsula. You will find a lot of villages around this area and some amazing white sandy beaches, where you will find yourselves the only person on the beach.
Its dry climate combined with the sea breeze forms an ideal environment not only for people but also for the farm products which are renowned for their high quality and taste. With picturesque sandy beaches, all awarded with the Blue Flag, century-old monasteries and churches, impressive caves with rich lithological and archaeological interest, historical monuments, Akrotiri attracts many visitors every year, who enjoy Cretan hospitality and nature at their best.
