We (four adults) spent 9 days in Villa Artemi, which was even better than the photos. Stylish, spacious and very comfortable, equipped with everything you could want. Spotlessly clean, with oodles of wardrobe space (and wooden hangers!) and a really well-equipped kitchen.
it's private in a quiet road yet only 5 minutes' walk from the beach, restaurants, tavernas and supermarket.
Plakias itself was lovely - long clean beach, a bit pebbly at 'our' end but sandier the further along you walked, warm crystal clear sea and plenty of choice of places to eat - the food was delicious.
Filippos our host was very helpful and friendly and his recommendations were spot on.
Would thorougly recommend and can't wait to go back.
Stayed in Villa Alkisti, excellent accommodation, great layout, perfect for families - young & old, all mod cons. Very welcoming & helpful owner, Filippos. Would highly recommend!
We spent 10 days there and absolutely loved it.
The place is very spacious, airy and clean. With the added bonus of a great private pool. The garden also gave us plenty of space to be either in the shade or soak up the sun, with sun chairs and hammocks widely available.
We travelled with a baby and Filippos kindly arrange a cot bed and a high chair.
The location was super handy, in the heart of Plakias with the beach, supermarkets and loads of restaurants within walking distance!
This is simply the best villa we have stayed in. Location is perfect, has all the facilities you need and is absolutely spotless. For six people it is great value, a little extravagant maybe for a couple. However once you've stayed here you get so used to the space and the luxury, you will not want to stay anywhere else! The owner is helpful and friendly, the accommodation is perfect. You really can't go wrong with this one. We will return as often as we are able
We stayed for a week in Plakias having visited Western Crete before, but never the Southern Coast and we were blown away by the area and the quality of the accommodation. Filipos could not have been more attentive - he and his son work hard to keep the pool and Gardens immaculate and the Villa is exceptional in terms of comfort and facilities. We could not believe our week went so quickly - we will be back!
