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.

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.

Superb villa, wonderful hosts

5 of 5
This villa was spacious and very comfortable. It was well equipped and maintained and was perfect for a relaxing weeks holiday. It was spotlessly clean plus we had a mid stay clean and change of towels & linen which was very welcome. The village of Gonia was remarkably well serviced – as well as Marianna & Nikos’ wonderful taverna, it had a café, petrol station and mini market. We used all of these facilities several times, great to be able to walk rather than have to get in a car. The hospitality of the Greek people in general was excellent and Marianna & Nikos were in particular very hospitable. Plus their taverna was fantastic value with great food, we will review that separately on Trip Advisor as it was so good! Thank you for a great holiday. Would happily recommend this villa to friends and family.
