Exactly what dish was 'Pepi' in? LOL
Sorry, but I've had a couple of glasses of very nice Ozzie wine, and well it seemed funny at the time.

Hello Peter and Dawn.

I am staying at the Irida in September - first time to Plakias. I haven't found many photo's of the views from the balconies but I am imagining the top floor would be best.

Could you tell me what the view is like and if the road noise is too intrusive - there has been mixed reports regarding this.

Also which room numbers are furthest away from the road and top floor - I am hoping to email the owners with a request nearer the time.

Many thanks

Hi Nora,
We had a ground floor room, not sure how many rooms Olympic have at the Irida. The view was over the garden, but looking right from the balcony we could see the hills behind Plakias, looking left we could see the pool.
As for noise, you could hear the odd motor bike charging up the road, but they could be heard everywhere in Plakias, but on the whole noise was not a problem. We did not loose any sleep because of it.
We enjoyed our stay at the Irida, and if we weren't in Australia we would be back there again this year.
We hope you have a great time.

Hello. We have booked at the Dora for end of June/ beginning of July. My Wife wants air con and a bit of a view. Which are the best rooms to book? Do the upper and larger rooms have air con and a better view? We have read that some look out on a concrete wall as a large house is now blocking. Thank you for any help.

We stayed there a few years ago, and if its views you are after then you will be dissapointed.
The rooms were very basic, but clean. We had one of the ground floor rooms which did look out on the unfinished multi story property next door.
If I remember correctly, there was no aircon, but they may have added it since we stayed.
As a base only we found it OK, but we only stayed there once, the following 2 visits we were in Flisvos, (looking out over the bay) and then in the Irida, (which had garden views).

Wherever you stay though, Plakias is an unforgettable experience.

Hi Nora,
The best stifado we have had was at Lysseos restaraunt just by the bridge. Always one of the first meals we have in Plakias.
(Now resident in NSW Australia, hoping to return at some time in the future)

Hi Mike,

Thanks for you comments,
We are moving to the Central Coast, NSW, somewhere around Gosford, about a hour or so North of Sydney, as close to the sea as we can get.
A location similar to the Livicon would suit us fine  ;D

Hi everyone,
Fredy is not working on the beach anymore. (had an email from Emma confirming it)  :( :(
He can still be found working in Vrisi restaurant, and of course at the Livicon after he has finished work.

We hope everyone planning to go to Plakias in 2012 will have a great time, unfortunately we will not be there again, as we are emigrating 'down under'.

Plakias holds a very special place in our hearts, and its George we must thank for that.
We will be back, don't know when, but our heart felt thanks to all our friends in Plakias who have made our stays over the years so enjoyable. (To Ali, Dave, Emma, Fredy, Dionysis & Georgia goes our special thanks, and appreciation for their friendship)

To everyone we met at the Forum dinners, please raise a glass (or 2) to absent friends in 2012.

Wishing everyone a great Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous 2012.  :)


P.S. We will still keep an eye on the forum, so we can still feel part of the community.

Using the toolbar near the top of the page.
Go to 'Profile', then 'Forum Profile' from the drop down menu.
Personalized picture is the first topic.
Mine was set to 'No Avatar', I changed it to 'Upload an Avatar'
Use 'browse' to find a previously stored .jpg file.

I hope this helps,

[Otherwise it is a good excuse to sit in a bar in Plakias and watch the waves.


We spent a very pleasant day in the Livicon last year doing just that, by the end of the day we had quite a gathering of Forum members.

Sadly we are not returning this year    , but have a great time all of you that are going.
