Located in the Rethymnon region of Crete, you can be assured of beautiful beaches and delightfully quiet countryside from any Plakias holiday.

The villa is about a mile from Prines and a mile and a half from Atsipopoulo where there is a good supermarket, a bakery and a few tavernas. 5 minutes in the car or 20 minutes on foot. Rehymnon and the beach 15 minutes by car. The villa itself has a good size pool and is very well appointed inside. The owners, the Sofoulakis family, are most welcoming and do everything they can to make for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

We were a group of five friends who were welcomed by our wonderful hosts, Eleni and Giorgios with both lovely food and drink. The villa was wonderful and had everything you would need for your stay and having the owners next door meant they would be hand if we needed anything, we didn't. When you enter you could not help, but be drawn to the outside. The view was spectacular. The pool, which seemed quite new was lovely. Whilst on holiday we would normally go out in the evening, but the patio area at night , when the lights in the both the pool and garden came on gave us the best place to sit and share some wine. We had one day of rain which was when we made use of the lovely spacious upstairs lounge, again with stunning views, Netflix and chill. On this day Giorgios knocked and asked if we needed to be taken anywhere, as we didn't have a car. He really went above and beyond what was expected. Overall we all had a lovely time. The beach and amenities are all in walking distance, a bit of a hill back, but we like to walk whilst away. Thank you again .
