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...

We stayed here from 13-20 June 2014. We had a ground floor studio,overlooking part of the well tended garden and a view towards Spinalonga. 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

The high rating of Athina Villas is well deserved. Our ground floor room was nice, spacious, basic in its furnishings, yet comfortable and practical with a wonderful large terrace. The excellent and quiet location is great and very convenient in the center of the village within minutes of many very nice restaurants, and yet practical for exploring the region. Luckily,... More

The excellent experience we had staying at Athina was down to not just the great location and comfortable rooms but, more so, the welcoming, warm and kind-hearted host we had in Manolis. We were so happy to spend the last few nights of our two week holiday there - a perfect ending. So close to the beach, cafés / restaurants... More
