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.

Places to visit from a villa in Plakias, Greece

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

Perfect place for a perfect getaway holiday

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay in Armonia, we were there before season starts so it was quiet and relaxing but even though we had neighbours in a villa next to us we didn't even notice their presence apart from occasional water splashes sounds. The villa is very comfortable, feels nice and cool and air conditioning cools air quickly but we only used it really at night to cool down the bedroom. George welcomed us with wine and a lot of advice of what to see and where to eat which turned out very useful. Kitchen is well equipped but we barely ever used it as we mostly walked to Lefkoiga (about 10mins walk) in the evenings to have our tea in the Family Taverna which was the most welcoming and friendly place in the whole area of Plakias. The villa was well looked after by the staff, usually the pool would be cleaned around 8-8.30 every morning and the cleaners would come every day to do their chores (very lovely 2 ladies). We felt very at home and the views from the villa and warm evenings spent sitting at the pool were something we will never forget. We don't own a car but it's very easy to get a taxi to drive around nearby places like Plakias or Mariou or the Preveli beach. It doesn't cost much, we paid 8 euros to Plakias and 10 to Mirthios but we also walked a lot admiring the beautiful views Crete offers. There is one shop in Lefkoiga where you can buy all the necessities but if you need to do bigger shopping, Plakias is the place with many supermarkets, clothes shops and bakeries. Absolutely amazing holiday and we will definitely return.
