“Every year it's like the first time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Every year it's like the first time, Chrisanthi takes care of us as if we were family members. The apartments are really beautiful, spacious, comfortable and excellent cleaning. The view is exceptional, perhaps one of the best on the island and great location for excursions all over the island.

We arrived at Chrisanthi nearly by chance in August 2012. We liked the place so much that
we came back in 2013. Mirthios is a small village just over Plakias, but it is the ideal location for doing many things, from swimming in Souda, in Plakias and in the other many beautiful beaches, or trekking in the gorges (try Imbros Gorge: shorter than Samaria, but very very beautiful), or trying some good restaurant nearby.
At Chrisanthi, we found an ideal base for exploring a region with a fascinating history and culture (give a look to Frangokastello).
The place is very clean, and the owners are very kind.
I especially liked to spend my time on the terrace overlooking the Libyan sea: a never-ending performance!
All in all, a very pleasant stay.

We stayed at Chrisanthi Studios now for the fifth time. Usually we are in september and sometimes also in May. The weather is gorgeous, though there is sometimes a hard wind. The view from the apartment is great, the accommodation very tidy, and the people very friendly. You can walk and through the Valley to Plakias. In short, we see when leaving the apartment already forward to the day when we come back.

Last September we stayed at Chrisanthi's and this year we are going back. The location is stunning with views of the mountains to the right (from the room) and overlooking the bay to the front. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the owners very friendly. There are three restaurants a short walk down the road and they too overlook the bay. I like the village as it remains unspoilt , little changed since my first visit in the 80's.

Excellent location with panoramic view over Plakias and Lybian sea! It is within short distance to Preveli, Damnoni, Plakias, ecc., and excellent base to explore Frangokastello and the Sfakia region. Staff was extremely kind and the studio was fully equiped and very clean. In addition, there are lovely restaurants nearby in Mirthios and Mariou. An accomodation we would surely recommend!

We stayed at Chrisanthi Studios & Apartments earlier in June, Miss Chrisanthi and her husband were so welcoming and hospitable, they really made us feel at home. The location is wonderful with stunning views and easy access to lovely restaurants in Mirthios. The Studio was always kept really clean and the grounds were very much cared for. It was just the holiday we needed, so relaxing and peaceful, would definitely recommend anyone to stay at Chrisanthi Studios & Apartments.

Excellent place. We love to visit Chrisanthi and Zaharias every year. It realy feels like home, well it is home. We fully recommend to anyone who wants to go beyond a breath-taking view and experience a true family atmosphere of southern Crete
