Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Plaka - Plaka Beach Holiday Cottages

400 sqft Studio with integrated kitchen and separate bathroom, private gazebos..

50 ft. from the waterline lies this exceptional small flock of three separated cottages on a beautiful and safe plot of fenced land. A few steps bring you from your cottage directly down to the sea which is not more than 50 feet away from your terrace. The cottage is a spacy 1 Studio room with sea-view, a built-in kitchenette and a separate bathroom with sink, shower, toilet. The studios are inside identical with vaulted high ceilings, ca. 400 sq.ft. (about 37 square meters), large comfortable double bed (King size), separate sofa/bed (2m x 90cm), view to the sea, inside and outside eating area, built in kitchen, separate windowed bathroom with marble tiling, Shower, sink, toilet. The Studio room has full A/C with the most modern inverter technology for enhanced environmental and noise protection. Every cottage has its private shaded outside Gazebo with table and chairs, with unobstructed view to the sea as well as a private sunbathing area also just for you. The cottages are separated by high natural stone walls for a maximum privacy. It would be hard to be closer to the sea or in a more relaxing spot with the soft sound of the waves around you. And it would be hard to find such a safe location far away from the big cities but still in short walking distance (ca. 650 ft, ca. 200m) of a friendly little fishing village with many original tavernas and cafes. A bus stop is close. FOR RATES AND OUR CONTINOUSLY UPDATED AVAILABILTY CALENDAR PLEASE SCROLL DOWN!!!

More about the location:

You will spend a wonderful and relaxing holiday directly above and on a beach on one of the most famously beautiful parts of Crete’s coast - the Gulf of Mirambello - the light and shades of blue changing with the hours of the day. It would be hard to be closer to the sea or in a more relaxing spot. The beach itself is a long and pretty curve of pebbles, with natural shade from tamarind trees. Just across the water lies the deserted island of Spinalonga with its poignant history and atmospheric ruins and from Plaka’s small harbour it is possible to join a boat to explore the island or hire one for pottering up and down the coast. Plaka also has shops and good tavernas serving fish and other Greek specialities. The walking distance between the properties and the village is less than 5 minutes along the road behind the beach. The village and complete area is a very safe place, far away from any large city. The less than 200 inhabitants that almost all live of fishing or tourism. A watersport is located at the beach.

About Natalia

Hi, I am Natalia. I am property manager for several selected properties on Crete. I am fluent in English, German and Russian and very much look forward hearing from you!

Natalia purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Natalia chose Plaka

The area of Plaka and Elounda is probably the most desired area in all eastern Crete. Not only because of the cristal clear mostly quiet water of the sheltered bay that makes it ideal for swimming, relaxin or watersports. But also because of the famous fortress island of Spinalonga that lies directly in front of the property, just about half a mile over the bay. The most expensive hotels of all southern Europe are located in the area of Plaka and Elounda : Blue Palace Hotel, Plaka - Elounda Beach Hotel, Elounda - Elounda Mare Hotel Elounda etc.

We have done a very good job with constructions of natural stone and wood to give every cottage a lot of privacy by separating the sitting and sunbathing areas close to your cottage, a thing not self understood even in the bungalows of the large hotels.

What makes this cottage unique

you are uniquely close to the beach with a nice mix of your private gazebo and sunbathing areas just a few feet from the waterline. At night you can enjoy the moonlight on the sea and the soft sound of the little waves on the beach through your open windows. Pleasures that you pay a fortune for in one of the bungalows of the big hotels. And still you are not in the middle of nowhere but in short walking distance to a small fishing village with lots of nice taverns, a small supermarket etc.

Pure peace.

It was dark and very windy when we arrived and were met by Christina who showed us to the kolokitha cottage, and gave us lots of useful information. It wasn't until next morning that we saw just how stunning the location is. We could not have been any closer to the sea without being in it! We had many spe coal moments during our stay, early morning swims in crystal clear water with only the sound of goats breaking the silence, watching the little fishing boats returning with the days catch, watching a huge fireball moon rise over Spinalonga and send a Golden path out across the sea, seeing the island of Spinalonga lit at night, long lazy days spent on our terrace. The village is just a couple of mins. Walk where there is a small store selling essentials and some great tavernas where you can while away the time people watching. Christina and Lela were like little secret squirrels cleaning and changing linen and towels regularly. Some words of advice, invest in rubber swim shoes, the stony beach is not comfortable to walk on. The kitchen is compact and lacking in equipment for serious cooking, but we easily overcame this by improvising and the bar-b-q was great. We certainly came home feeling rested and would love to return!

A hideaway with a perfect outlook

  • 4 out of 5
We were greeted warmly after a delayed flight by Christine, who was to be a superb help during our stay. Kolokitha Sudio was spotlessly clean and kept so during our stay by a marvellous cleaner. All the fittings, bedlinen and equipment were new and functioned perfectly.
The private terrace area with sunbeds was blissful ! a few steps to the water and with excellent views across to Spinalonga. Accessing the sea from the pebble beach is eased by water shoes. Great location for the local village (2 mins walk),which has about 8 tavernas and a small supermarket. Going to Spinalonga on the first boat was a wise decision, in view of the large numbers later on. The Carob Tree was easily the best and cheapest place to eat and drink with excellent customer service. Would highly recommend for a quiet, restful break.
