Apartment was adequate, clean and conveniently located. Let down by the poor view from the balcony of the adjacent incomplete property. However for the money we can't complain.The package deal was cheaper than we could get a flight.

Lovely clean & tidy accommodation in a quite part of Plakias yet only 3 to 4 minutes walk to the beach and tavernas. Dora the owner & maid is very friendly and helpful and does not pressurise you into leaving so she can clean the rooms. Excellent views over the village even from the ground floor rooms.

These studios are run by Dora herself - a very pleasant Greek lady who enquired whether the room was ok and provided the additional welcome of a flask of raki. The room had nice furnishings a bit above the usual basic and was in a quiet location. However, we had quite a walk with our cases from the coach drop-off/pick-up... More

We stayed at Dora's studios previously in 2007 so knew what to expect. With the exception of air conditioning being available, it doesn't seem to have changed at all - even the unfinished building next door is the same! This time we had room 10 - a good room because there is a window at the front and the doors... More

Our fourth visit to Plakias and this time we stopped at the Dora studios. We were lucky and were allocated room no 1, on the top floor, we had a super view over plakias bay, nice roomy studio nice big balcony. The only drawback was the bed, not the most comfortable, but hey, it's only two weeks. The standard of... More

Shared a room with 2 others which became uncomfortable at times due to the hot weather, not Dora's fault of course, more a question of how you time your air con as you can end up waking up to a sub zero room! Shower and sink worked fine along with fridge, didn't use cooking facilities. View from balcony was very... More

Stayed here in Ocober. The studio was basic but clean and with some nice little extras. The loction is quiet and there is easy access to the beach and tavernas. The small balcony had a nice view of both the sea and the olive clad hills. Dora was most helpful. I have travelled extensively but Dora is the only person... More

Spent a week at Doras studios room number 8, I would not recommend any one to stay in this room, I cant comment on other rooms but this one is dark, dirty and very run down. We are well aware of what to expect from a basic Greek studio as we have been to Greece many times over the last... More
