So you think you are getting a basic apartment on the beach right? Wrong! Villa Plori is SO much more. Instead of paying through the odds for sea views, and family rooms, and wifi etc all of this comes as standard. The rooms are spotless. They are not plain and basic, they are beautiful and so well considered. It is... More

Our first visit to Plori was 22 years ago and we were entranced from the beginning - excellent location middle of village on the beach, lovely studios complete with a welcome bottle of wine, water and treats in the fridge on your arrival. The warm friendly hosts (Manolis and Lena and their family) are all you could ever wish for.... More

Probably the easiest place to relax and chill-out as we have ever been to. The accommodation is first class and the owners are there to please. Situated right on the beach, the sound of the waves lapping gently on the narrow shelving beach - ideal for young children - lulls you to a restful sleep at night. The courtyard is... More

Villa Plori and the village of Makrigialos weave their magic again. Just returned from a wonderful 3 week stay at Plori. We are regular visitors having stayed here many times and it keeps getting better. Manolis and Lena are the perfect hosts, warm, friendly, always attentive but never intrusive. They have worked hard over the winter season upgrading all the... More

As regular visitors to Villa Plori we know that the owners are always trying to find ways of improving the experience of guests at these lovely beachside apartments. This year we arrived to find that the shower rooms/toilet have a new "boutique hotel" style - a number have been cleverly enlarged but all vary to some extent. Another addition is... More

We got to Villa Plori by mistake but this was a lovely surprise to find this little gem. A beautiful room few minutes from a nice and quiet beach. Very clean and accommodating. A nice owner who agreed to accept us very late at night. Thank you!

The apartments are right on beach with all enjoying a balcony looking out onto the sea. While many Crete resorts have shingle beaches the Villa Plori has access to pristine white sands with private sun loungers. The rooms are immaculate and the hosts are friendly and helpful. My fiancée and I had a very relaxing week and despite it being... More

The apartment is upgraded ................ new mattresses, very comfortable. The interior................very... More

We stayed at Villa Plori in May for the second time and the experience was magnificent! Even though the first time was superb, this time everything was even better! To be precise, the new Coco-mat mattresses provided an excellent sleep experience, better even than two 5star hotels I've visited. The sea view is excellent and unobstructed, with the beach just...

We ve just stayed a few nights with a 3 month old baby and we loved it! Lina is really helpful and welcoming, the setting is perfect, and if you take a baby phone, you can literally bathe, eat and enjoy drinks at a lovely sports bar while your little one is sleeping in a baby cot with a mosquito...
