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.

my daughter and i had a lovely stay at mary beach however i must stress that a car is absolutely essential thank goodness for the caretaker and his family they were so helpful and delightful to us they took us to the supermarket several times and gave us some lovely cake as well also the lady at Kioni tavern was very helpful and i must point out it would be helpful if the information book inside the villa was in English please

We loved it here and wouldn’t hesitate to return!

This modern detached villa with private pool sits in a beautiful location surrounded by stunning landscape and views. The villa is very clean (I’m fussy) and perfectly equipped whilst the pool and private gardens to front and rear are well maintained. Friendly cleaners visit daily, towels are renewed every two days and bed linen changed every four. George is very helpful, knowledgeable and on hand if needed. Lefkoiga village with supermarket and tavernas is within easy walking distance. In our opinion, a car is needed to reach local beaches and the nearest town, Plakias, just a ten minute drive away.
