Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Plakias, Greece your home away from home

However, this is by no means a large faceless resort, Plakias has remained a small resort on the beautiful Rethymnon coast, where nature still dominates and culture is still authentic. Located in the Rethymnon region of Crete, you can be assured of beautiful beaches and delightfully quiet countryside from any Plakias holiday.

The peace was lovely, with very few people around we mostly had the beach to ourselves. The family run restaurant next door was great, the food was delicious and the family were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely return to the villa and have in fact already discussed our return. The one criticism we had was it would have been nice to have been given some basics like soap washing powder, tea and coffee and also things like the kettle could have been of better quality. However it has not changed our discussion in our rating because the villa was just what we wanted.

Our faces and squeals of joy when we first walked in must have been a picture. Back up from the owner was only an email away and a local man popped by most days to clean the pool. Crete is an amazing island, great food, loverly people and a sea that you can just play in for hours and not get cold. From what we saw of Crete we definatly prefered the South side. We would love to visit again.

                                                                                            5 of 5

The apartment had everything what you would need - fully equipped kitchen, clean bed linen, spacious living room and short walk to the sea. We also wanted to say positive remarks to manager Valia for all suggestions and answering all our questions, to Eleana, who greeted us warmly in the apartment. Thank you for making our stay very pleasant and cozy. Wish you all the best and hope to come to Plakias once more! Regards, Gertruda
