Anything we needed, he made sure to take care of it. The rooms are also great and clean. It was one of favorite place to stay in Greece.... More

We stayed at Emilia apartments during first half of August 2015. In short: - Apartments are positioned ideally, walking distance to the long and wonderful beach and to the centre of the Plakias village yet secluded. - Apartment we stayed in was built with enough civil engineering sense - windows and doors enabling natural air circulation so no air conditioning...

We thank Ruzdi very much indeed for his nice words about Emila in Plakias. Ruzdi has been a gentleman during his stay with us. It was a pleasure to serve him.

There was hot water all the time (even although it had rained our first evening!!) and Joanna was very friendly and helpful. Well priced too - what... More

“Rooms at the back are quieter but view on olive groves and mountain - you need to be upstairs at the front if you want a view.”
