I traveled with a friend and our adjoining rooms each had their own small balcony with table and chairs and each ensuite room had it's own kitchenette. The large shared terrace gave spectacular views over Plakias bay... More

Clean and spatious appartments with small kitchen, close to town center but very quite. Every room has a balcony or small terrace with seaviews. Suitable for couples and families. Parking in front of the house. Eleni is a very friendly housekeeper, and always willing to help with local information about activities, travel, restaurants etc. Booking: info@plakias-studios.gr
