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

We are just ending our honeymoon in plaka, Crete and were lucky enough to have chosen Athina villas as our accommodation. Firstly the rooms provide excellent value for money, location is perfect just by the sea and lastly the owner Manolis is an absolute... More

My son and I were lucky enough to stay at Athina Villas for two weeks, end of June, beginning of July. What can I say? We had a truly wonderful time, and I have nothing negative to say. Manolos is the perfect host, ensuring that all is well and that he is doing all that he can. I really liked... More

We booked a one night stay here while on holiday in Sisi to spend some time in Plaka and visit Spinalonga. When we arrived at lunchtime, we were greeted by Manolis the owner, who showed us to our apartment and chatted to us about Plaka, advising us regarding our Spinalonga trip. Our apartment was clean, spacious, fully air conditioned and... More

I booked a last minute break by myself just to get away from everything for two weeks, I originally only booked to stay at Athina Villas for 5 days, but once in Plaka ended up staying for the whole 14 days. Firstly, the owner Manolis is such a nice guy, extremely likeable and genuinely kind. He doesn't live at the... More

We stayed in this apartment for two nights. We wished we had booked for longer. Manolis, the owner, was courteous, and kind. The apartment was large, clean and bright, with a stunning view view from the south facing balcony, to Spinalonga. We were in an apartment upstairs, which doubtless improved the view. The apartment was ideally situated for visiting Spinalonga,... More
