The family-run Elgini Studios lies on a hill 900m from the sea. It can host up to 3 people in each of its 5 rooms. Each has a private terrace overlooking the Libyan Sea. It offers self-catering units, a beautiful garden and free Wi-Fi in all areas. Zania and Stelios named Elgini after their three children El-Eleftheria, Gi-Giorgos and Ni-Nikos which shows that the studios are a part of themselves.
The studios are located in an area with endless sea view. They are 2km away from the village of Plakias, making the stay unobstructed of road and restaurant noises.
Each room has its own aircondition, kitchenette, bathroom and private terrace with wooden pergola for great shadow. Access to each room is made through 5-20 stairs, so do let us know if you need facilities for disabled.
The closest bus station is 800m away. However, the most comfortable transport our guest find is their car. There is free parking for you or any friends at the site of the studios. If you prefer you can explore the area on foot or by bicycle. Occasional transport to the village by hired taxis costs around 3 euros per trip.
