Anna Plakias appartment

It was a wonderful place to stay, all as described, very friendly staff, quiet but still near the beach and shops. We enjoyed a lovely garden area. Everything in the apartment very clean and well kept.

We stayed for a week in June 2014. We were late getting there after a flight delay and a 2 hour drive in the dark over mountainous roads. We we welcomed by the owner, Anna, and shown to a really nicely appointed apartment along with some cake. Everything was well taken care of and the apartment was cleaned daily. I couldn't get the TV to work and a technician was there the next day to get it working. The closest restaurant, the Medousa, turned out to be a top pick in TripAdvisor and well worth the recommendations. The town was small and friendly and we did lots of drives to local beaches. Highly recommended.

Great spot, ideal location, terrific service.

  • 5 out of 5
Ideal, perfect Location. Personal Touches.

Anna Apartments are located centrally in Plakias, just behind the beach front road.
These apartments are quite, well furnished, well maintained and above all very clean.
Our apartment for the 10 days was no 4. Situated on the ground floor it consisted of a large sitting room, cum kitchenette, opening onto a garden area, equipped with tables and chairs for relaxing and eating. A spacious bedroom and good bathroom. Throughout our stay the rooms were maintained daily, fresh towels, regular linen changes and plenty of hot water.
All necessary utensils and equipment were supplied, including some lotions and shampoos.
That’s the facts, however where Anna shines is the high level of personal, non intrusive care which her team lavish on all guests. Anna herself met everyone as soon as possible, Yiannis also introduced himself and offered any assistance we required, and the third member of the team was Mira who daily looked after the cleanliness with such good attention and cheerfulness. The little touches like fresh flower on arrival, Anna’s delivery of a lovely Orange ring cake and the thoughtfulness of Mira who on noticing birthday cards for my wife placed two roses in a little vase beside them.
On no occasion was this attention intrusive or over done, just the right tone.
A must if you stay in Plakias, you will not be disappointed.

We went back to this lovely place!

  • 5 out of 5
This year we decided where to go before long russian winter very quickly - of course in Plakias, to our good friens on Crete! We were there previous summer and liked this place very much. I asked to book room with view on stream, with terrace under palm and lemon trees, and Giannis provided it. High level of service was the same, we didn't have any problems. When we entered our room, perfect cake made by Anna was waiting on the table. Also some water and juice were useful. Such attention and hospitality are very pleasant. We felt that people here are very friendly and always ready to help. Third time lucky, and perhaps in 2014 we will return to Plakias. This place is wonderful: it's quiet here, shops and taverns are close at hand. At the same time Plakias is a good point from where you can begin to discover Crete.

Stavros, Anna, Giannis, we will be happy to see you in Moscow!

It was a lovely apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week at this lovely apartment (ground floor one) which is very spacious, fully equipped and offers all amenities you need. The location is very quite, and, at the same time very central (just a couple minutes` walk to the beach front). Yiannis and his family did their best to ensure our holidays were pleasant and we thank you so much guys! We will be back next September! all the best! :)

A Most Delightful Stay

  • 5 out of 5
One of the most pleasant apartments we have ever stayed in. Spacious, clean, facilities and equipment were as described and the free wifi was very useful . The location was excellent with views to the hills and gorge behind and it was delight to wake up to the various farmyard sounds of sheeps bells, goats & geese. A 5 minute walk into Plakias and it's good selection of bars & tavernas along with the butcher,baker, fishmonger and a choice of supermarkets. Plenty of places to visit nearby or further afield if you are with car.
The owners Anna, Stavros & Giannis make you feel very welcome and any queries we had were answered or attended to promptly.
Mira's daily cleaning and laundry attendance with the added personal touches deserve special mention.
We look forward to being able to return at the earliest opportunity and have already recommended the apartments to friends and relatives.

Thank you for everything and we sincerely look forward to seeing you again soon.

If you want a peaceful, relaxing holiday in a fairly traditional Greek resort with a lovely mile long beach, plenty of good places to eat and drink, then go. If you want a loud brash resort with nightclubs and fast food then you won't like Plakias.

You can still see the fishing village that Plakias was before tourism took over, luckily its been done in the nicest possible way. The resort is very laid back and you can find the day slipping by all too easily while you just potter about. When you tire of the lovely beach (best bit is the naturist beach at the far end of the resort) then there is plenty of walking to be done, especially if you're armed with Lance Chilton's book.

Plenty of amazing untouched and private or even for nudism beaches with blue waters are in walking or cycling distance (Souda Beach, Ammoudi Beach, Damnoni Beach).

Famous Preveli Monastery and Beach is in approx. 15 minutes drive away.

You'll be spoilt for choice for food - all the restaurants seem to be good but for what its worth, favourites are Lysseos (a mix of Greek, Greek-Cypriot and ethnic cuisine), the Coral (fresh fish), Kri Kri (especially the pizzas) and Muses (particularly good for vegetarians). For pre-dinner drinks (or after dinner, or early afternoon or anytime really) you can't beat On the Rocks, fantastic Greek craft beer and cocktails in a perfect spot.

'Plakias is a blessed placed'.

It's the perfect holiday spot, located on the south coast of Crete. Built along a fabulous beach, which has been awarded with The Blue Flag. Everything you need is available in Plakias, shops, supermarkets, a wide variety of places to eat and drink, nightclubs, travel & estate agents. The beautiful south facing curved bay in which it sits is ideal for swimming, recreation, relaxing & sunbathing.

The surrounding hills provide wonderfulwalks, on trails through the olive groves and beyond. There is a small harbour (where you can get a boat to several other beaches) and following the beach road you'll end up on a rough track leading to Souda Bay after about 3 km. Looking into the horizon, across the sea you can see the southern-most part of Europe, the Island of Gavdos.
