Visited here with family, rented one room apartment for week. Place is bit far away from centrum, you need car to visit city centre. Accommodation is basic, room is old and bit used (for example lamp wiring was broken). Room has climate. Pool was big and clean. Only few visitors during July! Can recommend for budget traveller with car. Restaurant... More

I spent an unforgettable week here in September and can't wait to return. The pool is perfect, the apartments are really lovely, but more importantly, the hosts are wonderful. They are so incredibly welcoming and kind.

My husband and I have stayed at Venus Apartments many times, we love it so much we just have to keep returning. In the last 12 months there has been some redesigning done, the apartments now have tenting over the balconies to keep that strong sun off your heads it all looks very nice and tasteful. The family who run... More

Another fantastic holiday at the Venus apartments with the Perakis family, can not fault anything. Rooms clean, tidy & well maintained. The most amazing pool & very well looked after. Breakfast was a great way to start the day & kept Daisy & I going most of the day. The Perakis family make you feel so welcome & nothing seems... More

My first stay at the Venus Apartments with the Perakis family. I couldn't fault it, the family made me feel very welcome, the rooms were spotless, lovely breakfasts and the pool area was second to none, very clean and very relaxing. I was a bit wary as the apartments are not actually in the town, they are a good ten... More

Just returned from yet another stay at the Venus. The apartments may not be a modern as others, they are clean and comfortable. The swimming pool remains well maintained with plenty of sun loungers and chairs. Overall,once again, I must highly recommend these apartments for independent travellers who enjoy being welcomed into the Cretan way of life.

A spotlessly clean pool awaits you at the Venus Apartments in Platanias. Most days we had the pool to ourselves, but even when others were there it was still a picture of tranquility. The owners were extremely hospitable and gave great advice about where to go and eat and where not to. There were lots of greek families and couples... More

These family-run apartments are spotlessly clean and neat. I've marked down the sleep quality because the beds are rather hard - that won't be unexpected if you've self-catered in Greece before. The swimming pool is a huge bonus - very clean and, more to the point, quiet! We quite often had the pool to ourselves but even if all guests... More
