Sorry Dora, but although we enjoyed our holiday and have stayed with you several times before, this is the last time we will be staying with you. We booked through Olympic, as the package deal was cheaper than we could get a flight only. They get you there eventually [it took 3 hours for the transfer] – but the cost... More

We stayed at Doras Studios in August and absolutely loved it there. The rooms are a great size, the kitchen and bathroom have everything you need for a comfortable stay and the Balcony has the most amazing view of Plakias. We spent hours out there just watching the sky change colour in the evening and watching the moon come up... More

The rooms are quite basic, but a decent size and kept very clean. The location is ideal as you are only a couple of minutes walk from the beach, shops and restaurants. Some people complain about the view from the lower floor of the unfinished building, but if you have the ability to turn your head to the left you... More

We had a room on the top floor, which was well proportioned, clean, comfortable and had a great little balcony - the parrot next door seemed to be especially chatty when we were out there, had us in fits of laughter! The rooms were cleaned daily (except Sunday) - they even folded your bedclothes - which was a lovely touch.... More

I was glad to have the downstairs room on the south side of the apartment block as it is quieter and more private than the room near the main steps which I stayed in previously. It is near to the shops and the Ostraco bar where you can send emails and access the Internet and the rooms are cleaned regularly.

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
