On the southern edge of Crete, this villa rental in Greece in the town of Plakias offers a mix of modern and traditional Cretan life. You’ll love lounging by your own private pool, taking in the scenery, or having lunch on the terrace or balcony of this Greece rental villa. But you’ll also enjoy the town of Plakias itself, just outside this villa in Greece and big enough to have a range of activities but small enough to retain its traditional charm. The beautiful south-facing bay is ideal for swimming and sunbathing, while the hills behind provide wonderful trails through olive groves and beyond.
(300 m2) This is a newly constructed Greek villa rental, built in a modern style, with a covered terrace and private swimming pool (4m x 7m, 1.4m deep) with lounge chairs, sunshades, and a garden shower. You also have a barbecue for outdoor dining. The local property representative will meet you at a prearranged place and guide you to the villa. At that point (or, if your arrival time is late, the following day), the representative will answer any questions and introduce you to the spectacular island of Crete. A representative will also remain available on a 24-hour help line for any further assistance you might need.
(150 m2) Ground floor: Entering the ground floor of this villa will bring you to a spacious living/dining room with satellite TV, plenty of couch room, and a dining table with seating for six.

They share one bathroom with toilet, sink, and tub with handheld showerhead.

This Greek island villa on Crete is right in Plakias, 100 meters from the beach. The sand runs in a long strip around the bay, offering areas of both sand and pebbles; there are also spots good for snorkeling and, at the far end, for nudists. The atmosphere of the town can be busy at times, and there are plenty of restaurants along with two discos and a number of bars. The town is an excellent base for walking and cycling in the quiet countryside, offering paths at every level of difficulty. You’ll also want to take a day trip to Rethymnon to visit the sixteenth century Venetian Fortezza, imposing in itself but also the location of the annual Rethymnon Renaissance Festival. If you’re interested in the history of the island you may also want to step into the Historical and Folk Art Museum for a taste of traditional Cretan ceramics, textiles, artifacts, jewelry, and clothing from across the centuries.
