Kurmulis Studios are located in Stalos, in the Nea Kydonia area of Chania. Chania is Crete’s western most regional unit, with the largest mountain ranges, as well as deep gorges and precipitous cliffs, steep coastlines, and some of Greece’s most charming beaches. In addition to the natural beauty on show, Chania is a region rich in archaeology and history. The 2011 Census conducted by the Hellenic Statistical Authority recorded 156,585 residents in the Chania region, in an area of 2,376 km2. Stalos (or the Stalos Local Community to give it is official name) is part of the Nea Kydonia Municipal Unit in the Municipality of Chania and according to the 2011 census the permanent population was 868. The village’s history is relatively unknown: records from 1881 show it was part of the Municipality of Perivolia whose seat was in Galatas. In the 1890 census Stalos is reported to have had 32 Christian families without a single Muslim one. The Kurmulis Studios were built in 1990 in a residential area of Stalos.

The rooms are located in private grounds, amid quiet surroundings. Nearby are restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and local clubs. Just 700 m away is Stalos’ sandy beach, and if you're looking for one of Chania’s award-winning beaches such as Falasarna, Balos or Elafonisi, you’ll need a car for the short drive or alternatively you could use public transport. We recommend that you visit the Chania Archaeological Museum on Halidon St., and the Historical Museum at I. Sfakianaki St., as well as the Naval Museum in the Firkas Fortress in the Venetian harbour. Other great places to visit include Omalos which is the starting point of SamariaGorge, and the town of Kissamos, as well as Crete’s most westerly edge which is home to Falasarna and Sfinari. Alternatively visit Lake Kournas (Crete’s only lake), or try the island’s southwest coast which is home to Panagia Chrysoskalitissa Monastery, Elafonisi with its enchanting beach, and Frangokastelo, in the Mun. of Sfakia. A short trip that combines natural beauty and historical monuments is the route to Therissos. The distances from the main points in Chania town are:

20 km from Chania Airport, 15 km from Souda Port, and 7 km from the centre of Chania.
