We stayed for 2 nights in Athina Villas. We had the 2 bedroom apartment which is huge with a big terrace overlooking Spinalonga Island which is well worth the short boat trip from the pier a couple of minutes down the road. Very clean and well equipped. Manolis, the owner, is so friendly and helpful. He also has a coffee... More

I was at Elounda for a few days to attend my friend's wedding, and came across the positive feedback on Athina Villas onTripadvisor. The villa, located in Plaka, is also conveniently located not far from the wedding venue, and so we promptly decided to stay here. As praised by all reviewers, the host, Manolis, made our stay a very enjoyable... More

We had a wonderful time staying at Athina villas. We were met by a smiling Manoli, who waited quite late for us to arrive. The apartment was very spacious, had a lovely view of Spinalonga from the huge balcony and was in a lovely spot. It was far enough from the resorts in Elounda to make it peaceful and one... More

We went to Athina Villas on our honeymoon. We were warmly welcomed by the manager. Plakka is a quiet town with a great beach. It's also great for a little snorkling. From Plakka, there are many beaches, archaological sites and towns to be explored. We had a great week! Thanks Emanuelis!
