We stayed at the Villa Sophia Apartments at the end of June, 2014. Our apartment was clean, spacious, well equipped and the beds were fine. The hotel was close to the main road and center, but quiet at night. The location by the beach was perfect, with an excellent pool. The whole place was very well maintained and clean. As... More

We stayed at Sofia Beach in mid August and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel and it's rooms are immaculately clean and the bedding and towels were changed daily. The resort is mostly populated by scandanavians which seems to give it a bit more class. The local restaurants were excellent with a really good atmosphere. We would particularly recommend Mylos Water... More

Just returned from Sophia Beach a couple of weeks ago and I have got to say it is in a perfect location right on the beach. We stayed there for two weeks in a two bedroom apartment that sleeps six but there were only four of us. The apartment itself was pretty big, clean as the maid comes every day... More

Just returned from a week in Platanias, and had a great time. The rooms in the sophia beach apartments were basic, but clean. I would advise anyone going there to put money aside for air conditioning though, as it gets very hot during the nights; this costs 45 euros a week. Outsice the apartments is a long path that leads... More
