What's happening with Stella Pensions??
« on: September 26, 2004, 09:26:56 PM »
Could anyone who recently stayed at the Stella Pensions shed a bit of light as to what the future now holds for Stella and Yanni now that First Choice have pulled out of Plakias?  Anyone know if we can book them independently, or have they been taken over by another foreign company? Also can anyone recommend accomodation for a family of four (2 children  11 and 7) with a private balcony, as we normally go on our own but want to take the kids next year.

Somewhere recently on this forum someone said they had seen a poster at Stella pension inviting people to book with them privately for next season.

We will be there from Wednesday morning onwards and it is probable that we will book privately with them for next September. Knowing their lack of English I have pre-prepared a calendar with dates, contact details etc clearly marked thereon.

Will report back soon after my return on 13 October.

Looking forward to seeing you there as well. Do introduce yourself - I'm a zomby when it comes to recognising the obvious. Have been know to walk past my wife in the street without noticing  

Re Stella, yes towels provided and changed frequently - rooms kept imaculate. Fridge provided but no cooking facilities - not even a kettle. Take travel kettle, + mugs if you need them - plenty of plugs. Air conditioning available at extra cost.

Yes - me  - just got back yesterday after 2 super weeks in Plakias, staying at Stella pension and also in the company of forum member Dotty and her Husband - two very super people .

Stella are taking private bookings for next year - and I booked with them for the same two September weeks next year (2005) - I already have confirmed flights.

They are charging 30 euro per room per night including breakfast.

Their son Marcos speaks English and you need to ring or fax him (same number) on :-

2832031956

That info is on a hand written notice in reception and Marcos also wrote it on the back of the card for me.

Stella number (reading from their card) is :-

(0832)31.615 - 31.959

Little point ringing them on that number due to their lack of English

That is the number he gave me. Not sure yet about the 2832 as the prefix is usually 0832  - someone else on this forum might help here.

He has asked me to ring him about 5 days before I set off to confirm the room number so that I know which room to look for on my very early morning arrival. All things being equal he is booking me into the room I requested.

Marcos said he or his wife are nearly always at home and both speak English.

Hope the above helps

My experience of Greek telephone numbers is that the number you have for Macros will be correct - just add 0030 in front to dial Greece.

The Stella number is 2 or 3 years out of date. It will now be: 28320 31615 and 28320 31959.

The Plakias Guide confirms this. Telephone 0030 28320 31615. It also gives a fax No. 0030 28320 31956. Info should also be available at the website - www.plakias-filoxenia.gr but it was down when I tried it just now.

Sadly it seems that most of the Stella Pensioers for our 2 weeks are not rebooking at Stella. So it is likely that is the demise of that named group.  

However we are all going to be scattered around Plakias and surely will meet most evenings in Livicon. I heard another reference to us which perhaps might be a fitting new name for "our" group which meets in the so called Plakias British Legion Headquarters (Livicon Bar). The reference was to "The Saga Louts"
