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

Known for its magnificent beach, Plakias is a hotspot for active family holidays in the sun. 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.

Things to do in Plakias, Greece

The stunning south facing Plakias Beach upon which the village made its name is of course, a huge attraction to Plakias villas. Plakias Beach is huge, and makes a perfect swimming beach. Or, if you simply wish to lie back and relax in the Mediterranean sun, the sand is perfect, and there is a lot of it! There is even a designated naturist area at one end of the beach.

Being in a rural area, villas in Plakias are also a magnificent base from which to explore the mountainous countryside of inland Crete. There are a good range of trails leading out through the olive groves and beyond into the mountains.

The town does provide all that you could need during a self catering holiday, including many excellent restaurants and bars. Plakias is not known for its raucous nightlife, but there are some excellent little bars.

Beautiful stone villa with fantastic views of sea and mountains.

5 of 5
Fantastic villa in the hills above the beach. If you like sitting watching the sun set over the mountains then this place is perfect - just like the photos. Owner and agent were friendly and helpful. Only niggle was construction work down the hill about half a mile away - I suspect though that we were unlucky to coincide with early drilling and the wind from the north - I doubt this would be a problem next week. We had an excellent holiday. Thanks.

An amazingly wonderful holiday, one never to be forgotten

5 of 5
Everything about our holiday was simply outstanding. From our first contact with George he was most helpful and gracious when booking and throughout the holiday itself. When Irene met us at the estate on arrival she was also very gracious and such a warm person. The whole team were exceptionally helpful and served with excellence throughout, both in cleaning and maintaining the property and pool, and also there if we needed anything at all. A welcome pack was provided on arrival, which was such a help when you first arrive from a long journey. The accommodation itself was simply outstanding. Beautifully maintained and cared for, excellent facilities, wonderful grounds and set in a peaceful valley of olive groves. Watching buzzards flying overhead, hearing cicadas singing away, soaking up the incredible peace all around, interacting with the dogs and cats/kittens - it was all just amazing. We had a holiday above and beyond what we could have ever expected, and can only thank George and his team for making it such a memorable stay. We'd have stayed forever if we could. Crete is an amazing island with so much to do, beautiful beaches galore, lots of history to soak up and also wonderful restaurants and dining places. George's recommendations were so helpful, and we are just so grateful to him for providing us with the holiday of a lifetime. We cannot fault Vederi Estate in any way. We will miss it, already do, and hope to return. I can thoroughly recommend any and all of the properties, anyone going here for a holiday will not be disappointed - exactly the opposite, they will be surprised and overjoyed.
