We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Stella Apartments. They are in a most beautiful setting, with wonderful views and pretty gardens. Our apartment was well equipped for more than basic catering for two - the only item we ought to have taken with us was a pair of scissors. The apartment was comfortable and extremely clean, and the bathroom is excellent with a very good shower. We couldn't make the TV work (and the only instructions were from a previous guest and in German) but this was not important enough to us to mention it to Stella herself.
The apartment was quiet and private and we were not much aware of other people in the other apartments. There is easy access to excellent tavernas in Myrthios - we know some people walked to them but as the way down is rather steep we drove, taking about 3 minutes. We especially recommend the Plateia on the village square, and had one thoroughly enjoyable evening in the adjacent Panorama when it had very good authentic bouzouki music. Plakias and other beaches are only a short drive away, and it is easy to get to historic sites such as Frangokastello and Phaistos, as well as the cities on the northern coast of Crete.
Stella and her husband are delightful hosts, eager to help and make visits a success in a very relaxing atmosphere. We'd certainly recommend the apartments and consider going again.More
