BEST decision!!! When we booked the owner, Manolis, sent us an email thanking us! So cool!! When we arrived, he was outside and gave us... More

We had a wonderful time staying at Athina villas. We were met by a smiling Manoli, who waited quite late for us to arrive. The apartment was very spacious, had a lovely view of Spinalonga from the huge balcony and was in a lovely spot. It was far enough from the resorts in Elounda to make it peaceful and one... More

I am in full agreement with all the positive comments on Athina Villas. My wife and I stayed for three nights in May and it would have been good to stay much longer. The rooms are clean, comfortable and a reasonable size and, for those with a car, parking is free. Plaka is a small, quiet village and is ideally... More

We went to Athina Villas on our honeymoon. We were warmly welcomed by the manager. Plakka is a quiet town with a great beach. It's also great for a little snorkling. From Plakka, there are many beaches, archaological sites and towns to be explored. We had a great week! Thanks Emanuelis!

If you want to avoid the monstrous hotels of the bay and you prefer to feel more free, near the beach this is the place to go. Although not hotel-level services, all the personnel is overachieving on offering staff. You can always relax on the beautiful veranda and feel the vibe of the village. Public bus stop are just in...

I had booked via Booking.com but from the point of booking Manolis,the owner, made contact via email. Firstly he confirmed that he would have a double instead of two single beds in the room. Then he... More
