The location of Castello apartments is excellent as you can easily go in the center of Plakias on foot within 5 minutes. Our room was very clean and spacious, while the beautiful yard was the perfect place for our children to run around and play when we were not at the beach.

We stayed in the top floor two bedroom apartment (room 20) for a week in April. The Castello apartments are tucked away in a wonderfull and beautifully kept garden down a little backstreet, a 2 minute walk from the beach & restaurants but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. The owner Christos was warm and friendly and couldn't... More

The owner Christos provided a Cretan breakfast at an extra charge of 6 euros per person and it was superb,served in the garden and very tasty. Would highly recommend this accomadation but pay a little extra... More

We stayed 21-1 Nov 2014 and found apartments to be very clean, in a lovely garden setting just a short distance away from "main strip" of shops and tavernas and beach which meant it was really quiet. Owner Christos was charming, helpful and kind especially when my partner unfortunately became ill (food poisoning) and we had to extend our stay... More

We have been staying at this family run accomodation for over 20 years, we have stayed in all of the types of accomodation including the very modern new apartments on the top floors. The older parts of the Castello are being modernised including installation last winter... More

“Appartment on higher floors”
 of 5 bubbles BobB770, 11 Sep 2015 | Read review
“Top floor apartments are probably the best for views but the overall garden setting of the entire building is very nice.”
 of 5 bubbles roisind82, 11 Nov 2014 | Read review
“Much better views from a higher floor (there are only 2 or 3 floors depending where you stay). Christos is happy to show you what is available and allow you to to choose unless he is fully booked.”
