We have been coming to Village Apartments for several years. It has always had a rather basic, if cosy, feel to it, with brownish dated interiors and the most ancient beds. Why we kept coming back was the unbeatable views over the valley and Plakias to the sea (honestly, none of the other hotels have the same setting here) and...

We stayed in No 2 for 2 nights. Upon arrival there is a friendly note on the reception notice board and the key was in the door; such an easy way to check-in. The apartment was ground floor with a balcony with a fantastic sea view. The apartment is large with a separate lounge/kitchen area. the main bedroom is spacious...

The Village Apartments on the mountainside at Mirthios are comfortable, spotless & affordable with a wonderful view of Plakias Bay. We have stayed in various apartments and enjoyed all of them. Kitchens allow you to cook (fresh fish from Plakias - yum!) or you can find excellent dining just up the road. Staff are extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful.

We had a wonderful stay in Village Apartments in August 2015. It was peaceful and serene. We had a great view, AC and nice kitchen. The bed was bit hard though. Thats the only minus. The owners are relaxed, helpful, accomodating and warm. We will be back. Please check out the the Dinoysos tavern just few steps away. Its a...

Village Apartments is on on the top of the hill overlying Plakias bay when you enter Mirthios village. It has several types of apartments; we rented the largest one, a two-level maisonette, which had a spacious living room/kitchen, an outdoor patio with sunbeds, umbrella over dinner table and roofed porch, and two air-conditioned bedrooms on the upper level accessible through...

We just happened to be driving by, and we stopped here. Very clean, very friendly, and the view alone is worth double the money! We will definitely be coming back on our next trip to Crete. Breathtaking can't even start to describe it. We feel very lucky to stumble across this little gem!

We stayed in Village Apartments in one maisonete.. The room was clean and really comfortable, we could stay all summer there (we were 4 people)! The best was that there was a completely new yard with grass, which had a unique view at Liviko Sea.. You could stay day and night outside at the yard, so relaxing!!! The next great...

The apartments are in the hills behind Plakias in the village of Mirthios which we preferred to staying down on the coastline. The apartment was comfortable and had a large balcony with an amazing view of the countryside and sea. There are three restaurants in the village so no need to go down to Plakias. This was the nicest place...

Fantastic view and perfectly located: 30 min walk to Plakias (or 5 min by car), several beaches, walking tours and places of interest easily reachable by car. We stood in a two-bedroom apartment with two bathrooms that was spacious and adequately equipped. Our room was reliable cleaned every day. Setting Greek standards we have been absolutely pleased with our accommodation...

We offer our clients not only pleasure and joy during their vacations, but also the sensation of being in the warmth and comfort of their house. ... more   less
