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

The peace was lovely, with very few people around we mostly had the beach to ourselves. The family run restaurant next door was great, the food was delicious and the family were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely return to the villa and have in fact already discussed our return. The one criticism we had was it would have been nice to have been given some basics like soap washing powder, tea and coffee and also things like the kettle could have been of better quality. However it has not changed our discussion in our rating because the villa was just what we wanted.

Large bedrooms, well equiped kitchen and the huge living room and nice terrace have a wonderful view to the white mountains. The pool is large and well maintained and behind (one terrace below) is even a nice garden where our kids loved to play. We were with 3 young children (5,4 and2) and it was very easy to close the stairs to the swimming pool with a chair, so our youngsters could not enter the pool unguided. That felt very safe. Mrs Frosso came by every day to maintain the house. She is really Nice, speaks English and knows a lot of the environment. The house is situated in a litlle village with a bakery, a few little supermarkets and Some Nice restaurants. It is a little but charming and friendly village. Nearby in Almyrida is a Nice beach (safe for little Children). I really can recommend this beautiful house!

Pool kept immaculately. Fantastic hospitality - family very welcoming and responsive to needs. Stella and parents really looked after us and took time to make us feel most welcome. Nice outdoor cooking facility and we used the charcoal grills and wood fired oven several times during out stays. Beautiful oak trees surround the garden inter spaced with olive groves that abound the property. You need a car at this location though. Some nice restaurants locally in Prines and great little bakery in nearby village of Atsipopoulos. Plenty supermarkets locally though not on Sunday's - will need to go into Rethymnon. Fantastic holiday. We love Crete
