LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
Three of us spent two weeks in this apartment in August. The apartment is in a peaceful location with only some local goats as a neighbour. Still all the services and the beach are only a few minutes walk away.

The apartment was clean and comfortable and had all the necessary mod cons. There is a lovely patio outside with sun beds and a table for meals al fresco. (Though the place can be bit windy especially in the evenings.) We could also use the owner's bigger garden with olive trees and some wondering chicken.

Plaka is a wonderful place for anyone who doesn't like the big tourist crowds - it tends to be bit more busy during the day with all the day trippers but the atmosphere is more charming in the evening. There is a wonderful place by the beach to have a romantic drink in the moonlight. Plaka has a handful of nice tavernas and there are many more in the nearby Elounda. A restaurant called Kanali (http://www.eloundakanali.gr/) was especially remarkable.

The owner was very helpful and even recommended us a very good local car rental company. (Much cheaper than the ones you will find through the websites.) I was delighted to befriend the owner's friendly cat too!

CHARMING PLACE WITH WOUNDERFUL GARDEN

  • 4 out of 5
Very charming place with wounderful garden. Quiet location and not far from the sea. Plaka is a very nice little village with a small supermarket and a few tavernas.

Plaka is situated towards the north east of Crete overlooking the sheltered Mirabello Bay. The village overlooks the famous island of Spinaloga and is backed by beautiful hills and mountains. Elounda is 5 minutes away by car and has most amenities that you would expect on holiday. The main town of Agios Nikolaos is a further 15 minutes away and is famous for its 'bottomless lake' and has many restaurants and bars. The capital is Heraklion with its main airport, a further 45 minutes away and also the famous archaeological site of Knossos a few minutes south of the city. A further 2 hours away to the west and you will reach the town of Chania. The main national road linking the main towns is well kept and signposted.

Further to the East you can visit the town of Sitia and in the south the town of Lerapetra.

There is much to see and in easy range of day trips by car or coach.

You might even consider a day trip to Santorini by high speed boat; unforgettable!
