“Lovely place to stay, very clean. Helpful and friendly owner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed in the Athina Villas for three nights. Nice room, very clean, good position in the lovely town of Plaka and Elounda only about eight minutes drive away. Buses also available. The kitchen was ideal with kettle and toaster as well as cooking facilities. The owner, Manoli, was very helpful and always on hand for advice. We would definitely stay there again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We have just spent two nights in the lovely Athina Villas in Plaka. We were staying in nearby Sissi, but my sister was staying in Plaka and we decided to spend a few days together in the beautiful Plaka. The apartment was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with air conditioning in both lounge and bedroom. The apartment had all the essentials and more. The owner met us and was most accommodating and helpful with everything we could need to know about the area. Can recommend these apartments, in their immaculate gardens, to anyone.

Room Tip: We had the ground floor front apartment. If you prefer total privacy, would request the upper floor...

i stayed in Athina Villas for a few days visiting a friend nearby. these apartments are in the middle of everything in Plaka-Elounda thus very quiet and peaceful. Apartment was comfortable and very well stocked kithenette was available. Free Wi-fi worked perfectly throughout the whole stay day and night. staff was super friendly and the manager Manolis looks like the person that can become your true friend.
It is not luxury but it is more than you need under the cretan sun:)
would definately recommend this place.
