Chrisanthi Studios & Apartments
Ranked #4 of 4 Mirthios B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We stayed at Chrisanthi Apartments almost by chance. Four years ago we travelled to Crete without a reservation. On the ferry I phoned the family hotel I had chosen (Anna View) but it was fully booked.
The man over the phone (Yanis Maragoudakis) told me not to worry and that they would find accommodation for us. And they really did. His mother Anna treated us with cookies and cold tea and his sister Errie took us to Chrisanthi Apartments....This was and still is the unique and unmatched Cretan hospitality you would rarely find elsewhere ...
We liked so much the location, the view of the sea and the Kourtaliotiki gorge , the garden, apartments, our hosts etc. that this year when we planned our trip we decided to check first at Chrisanthi's. She replied immediately that there was one apartment for us and ....here we go! Crete (Myrthios) revisited, Y2013!
We arrived late in the afternoon, around 5.30 p.m., but Chrisanthi and her husband were waiting for us, helped us with the luggage, had left a welcome drink of juice and beers in the fridge ....The garden had become even more beautiful, it was lush and green because of the watering system of hoses and Chrisanthi had planted more vegetation, there were benches, sunbeds....and tranquility, silence and relax....You can even see goats grazing on the rocks above the house....
All other people (Germans mostly) staying at Chrisanthi's at that time behaved very well - I mean they made no noise at all, as that is what you usually encounter in big hotels....
Besides, everything is immaculately clean and tidy - you just can't believe it !- And it stays so, because Chrisanthi cleans every single day, even though we stayed only two days!
I sincerely recommend this wonderful family hotel - the service is great at an affordable price. There is a parking lot if you come by car. The famous taverns of Myrthios are within walking distance...
We have found that by far this is the best place for relax that money can buy! You can sit on the bench facing Plakias bay, with the palm tree over your head, sip your drink and melt away with the sunset...
See you next year, Chrisanthi!

We stayed here already several times – and we'll surely do it again. It's a really nice place to spend some days, the studios are well equipped, have a huge terrace with a gigantic view onto the whole Plakias Bay, a great place to enjoy a lazy afternoon or a beautiful sunset. The area is calm, many spots of interest are easy to reach (by car). Everybody of Chrysanthi's family is very nice, friendly and helpful, we really enjoyed their warm hospitallity - so we can highly recommend to stay here.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Chrisanthi twice already and we are going to come back later this month.
We both loved the place. It's clean (gets cleaned every day), simply but comfortably furnished, there are parking spots in case you come by car. The location is fantastic, on top of a hill at the end of a windy gorge. You can see both the sea and the mountains. It's only 5 minutes away from Plakias. Our hostess Chrisanthi has always been very helpful and nice.
This is a small family business which deserves the best praises just for this homey feeling you get from the whole experience. Try it, definitely!

Every year it's like the first time, Chrisanthi takes care of us as if we were family members. The apartments are really beautiful, spacious, comfortable and excellent cleaning. The view is exceptional, perhaps one of the best on the island and great location for excursions all over the island.

We arrived at Chrisanthi nearly by chance in August 2012. We liked the place so much that
we came back in 2013. Mirthios is a small village just over Plakias, but it is the ideal location for doing many things, from swimming in Souda, in Plakias and in the other many beautiful beaches, or trekking in the gorges (try Imbros Gorge: shorter than Samaria, but very very beautiful), or trying some good restaurant nearby.
At Chrisanthi, we found an ideal base for exploring a region with a fascinating history and culture (give a look to Frangokastello).
The place is very clean, and the owners are very kind.
I especially liked to spend my time on the terrace overlooking the Libyan sea: a never-ending performance!
All in all, a very pleasant stay.

We stayed at Chrisanthi Studios now for the fifth time. Usually we are in september and sometimes also in May. The weather is gorgeous, though there is sometimes a hard wind. The view from the apartment is great, the accommodation very tidy, and the people very friendly. You can walk and through the Valley to Plakias. In short, we see when leaving the apartment already forward to the day when we come back.
