Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Mirthios - The Village Apartments

The Village Apartments offers spectacular panoramic sea views of Plakias bay

The Village Apartments are a modern complex consisting of one and two bedroom apartments and is situated in the beautiful traditional mountain village of Mirthios. One can stroll through the narrow paved side streets and see the traditionally built houses, many of which have been restored back to their original beauty. The village offers the guests 4 different tavernas to choose from, all offering international and traditional Cretan Cuisine. There are also 2 craft shops and a typical greek coffee shop called a Kafeneion where you can see the older men of the village sitting drinking their coffees and playing Tavli (Backgammon).

Plakias is only a 5 minute ride away, and offers everything one would expect of a sea resort. There is a wide choice of supermarkets, souvenir shops, cafeterias and of course tavernas and restaurant, a doctor, chemists and the post office.. There is a footpath close to the Village Apartments that leads through the olive groves and takes you right down into the centre of Plakias. The walk takes about 20 minutes to get to Plakias, and a little longer on the return walk to Mirthios.

The Maisonettes have 2 bedrooms and private garden terraces with an exquisite panoramic sea view of Plakias Bay.

The kitchen is fully equipped and provides all the necessary utensils and pots and pans for making either full meals or snacks. There is a fridge/freezer, coffee maker, and toaster. A hair-dryer and iron is also provided. The maisonette is a 2 level accommodation and can accommodate 4 people. There are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper floor, and living room, kitchen and second bathroom with washing machine on the ground floor. The Maisonette has satellite TV, air-conditioning, and free wifi internet connection. The balcony is furnished with table and chairs, so guests may enjoy the spectacular view over Plakias Bay.

The one bedroom Apartment has a separate bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, a living room with a sofa that also makes into bed and a fully equipped kitchen with dining area. The Apartment also offers the same accessories as the maisonette although there is no washing machine available. (If the guest is on holiday for a long period, then they can arrange with the owner about having their clothes washed).

The Village Apartments are well maintained, and a high standard of cleanliness is observed. The building is cleaned daily, and clean towels are also provided for the guests on a daily basis.

The most outstanding thing about the Village Apartments is the breathtaking view of Plakias Bay. Imagine sitting on the balcony at the end of the day, enjoying a long cool drink, and watching the sunset over the mountains and sea. It is an experience that will never be forgotten.

About Georgia Kalatzidaki

Hi, I'm Georgia, and together with my husband Yiannis and the rest of my family we are the owners of the Village Apartments in Mirthios. We built the apartments in 1998. I have 2 teenage children, my daughter Maria who is now studying for entrance to university, and my son Nondas who is in Junior High School. I was born in the village of Mirthios and have always lived here. Our family has been involved in Tourism for many years, both here in the village of Mirthios as well as in the sea resort of Plakias.

Georgia Kalatzidaki purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Georgia Kalatzidaki chose Rethymnon area

We chose to build the Village Apartment in Mirthios, because of the beautiful view of Plakias and the surrounding mountains and outlying villages. Mirthios is in many ways still a typical traditional Cretan village, and as it is only a few minutes away from the beach by car, offers the visitor the best of both worlds. I, like most Cretans, feel most at home in my village surroundings. It is peaceful, and it's natural beauty breathtaking.

What makes this apartment unique

The beauty of staying in Mirthios is that you have the peace and quiet to unwind on your holiday. It is lovely to take a slow stroll around the village through the winding side streets and past the typical village houses of an evening perhaps before going for a traditional evening meal, and hearing the old ladies calling out to each other from the balconies. (This goes back to the time before telephones and mobiles were used). There are also nice walks along footpaths through the olive and orange groves down to Plakias, where you can then enjoy a swim in the sea, or walk along the sandy beach. The thing that I like best about Mirthios is its panoramic view of Plakias which of course can be seen from all the balconies in the Village Aparment Imagine, sitting on your balcony with a nice cool drink of whatever you fancy, and watching the sunset!! It is the most unbelievable experience. I have seen it for most of my life, and still every sunset is different.

Village apartments are situated in the traditional mountain village of Mirthios approximately 3 kilometers from the sea resort of Plakias. For those who like walking, there are many interesting walks around the surrounding villages, where you can see the old mill where they made flour. Preveli Monastery, about 9 kilometers away is well worth a visit. You can read all about the part it played in the 2nd world war, and then visit the famous Palm beach of Preveli. The beach of Plakias, is safe and clean and has been awarded the Blue flag for cleanliness. Along the sea front of Plakias, there are many tavernas serving traditional Cretan Cuisine, and also restaurants with inter-nation dishes. There are many cafeterias and souvenir shops with handmade Cretan products ranging from small lace tablecloths, to beautiful handmade jewelery. Plakias has a post office, a doctor, 2 chemists, a laundry, and international book and paper shop, 3 hairdressers and many supermarkets where those who stay on self catering holidays can find all the necessary things needed for their holiday. For those who like a holiday that involves sea sport, there are water sports, and diving schools to be found in Plakias, Damnoni Beach, Amoudi Beach, and Skinaria Beach. You can go horse riding along the beach or through the mountains, and donkey riding is also available. There are car hire offices where you can also book excursions such as a walk down the famous Samaria Gorge, or take a boat trip to Gramvousa, a place that reminds me of what paradise would look like.
