Right in the middle of things, but tucked in a little backstreet, these apartments are perfectly placed (somebody says 100m to the sea, but I don't believe it can even be that far), and yet far enough away from the bars on the front that you won't be disturbed by noise. The very friendly and helpful family also own the...

They are large enough and they are fully equipped with kitchen appliances. The bathroom and the hole room is very clean. All appartments have a large balkony in front of...

We stayed at Helios Apartments in July 2013. Our apartment was very clean and spacious (2 separate bedrooms and large livingroom) and very well located in the heart of Plakias. The apartments are run by a very friendly and helpful family that also runs the downstairs supermarket, which provides everything you need at any time - very highly recommended !!

On holiday with a friend who had worked previously in this area of Crete. I was not dissappointed with the location (Plakias) or the accommodation at Helios Apartments. Heliios Apartments are centrally located just off the main area. (Plakias itself is a quieter village although there is bar/disco area for those who prefer). In saying that there is plenty of...
