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.

Outstanding

5 of 5
The villa was large, clean and fully equipped. The owners who also run the taverna 200m from the property were very hospitable and helpful about local knowledge. Can't recommend the villa enough will definitely be back.

Stunning location

4 of 5
Beautiful location in the mountains but with a village close by and a short drive to Plakias for its shops and beach. It was lovely sitting round the pool or on the first floor patio with views towards the sea. Just a few small issues. A double bedroom being used by 2 people for a 2 week stay needs more than 6 hangers in the wardrobe especially as limited shelving. Only 3 hot drinks mugs in a villa with 4 bedrooms? Small things mentioned only so that the owners can perhaps attend to them. The owners themselves are lovely friendly people. We ate in their nearby taverna and the food was lovely. The villa was also cleaned twice a week including clean bedding which is very unusual. I would like to warn visitors to take care on the stairway. It is marble and looks lovely but there is only a stair rail on one side. As that is the side that curves towards the bottom the only handhold is on the side where the stair narrows. As I have some arthritis I needed to use the handrail, became momentarily distracted, lost my footing on the narrow stair and slid rather painfully to the bottom. My own fault but please be aware. It did not spoil my holiday and I would certainly recommend this villa if stunning scenery, peace and quiet, plenty of room and friendly helpful owners are what you are looking for
