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

We came back from Sophia Beach last night after spending 2 weeks there. Nice resort and clean studios. We were pleased because we had a studio on the upper floor. We paid for the 2 weeks air conditioning because the temperature was very hot and we did need it. The price was in fact cheaper than we paidy last year... More

Great fairly basic apartments built along a lovely walkway with borders/pots of flowers, leading to bar area, pool, and beach. Convenience of having pool next beach just a stone's throw from apartment was superb. Sophia and her family (owner) oh and not forgetting Victor, helped make the holiday memorable. New Platanias not characterful but has all you need, restaurants some... More

We have just returned from a fantastic two week holiday at the Sophia Beach Apartments in Platanias! We only booked two weeks before we went and so, naturally, we were a little wary of how they would be. No worries at all. The apartments are large and situated on a lovely, leafy "avenue" leading up to the pool and bar.... More
