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.

Perfect villa

5 of 5
Nice place to go anywhere to visit the island. The owners are so much lovely. They assist us quickly, gently and respectfully. They speak French, what is a good point. Before the arrival, Kostas and his team gave us all the keys for a good stay. Everything was very well organised. Once we landed, I received a message to know if we were arrived. All the team make us have a wonderful stay in villa Belle. Congratulations!! We recommend this villa, you won't regret

Perfect villa for a peaceful / adventurous break

5 of 5
Super villa with STUNNING views and everything you need for your holiday. The villa is impeccably clean and just as it appears in the photos. Valia from think villa.com and Eleanna, the villa owner, were both lovely people to deal with. Excellent location just outside the pretty little village of Sellia. We ventured far as we had a car but learnt that we need not have as everything for a perfect holiday can be found in the Rethymnon area. Every meal we ate was fantastic and very reasonably priced even in the more touristy areas. My personal highlights were shopping for souvenirs in the old town at Rethymnon followed by lunch at Avli restaurant, lazing on the local beach at Rodakino and climbing the rocks and splashing out on hiring a small boat for the day from Hora Sfakion and visiting Louthra, Samari gorge and small coves. £120, no licence required - worth every penny for the experience. Enjoy!
