Great villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a fortnight at Villa Thromila. There were 13 of us the first week, two families. Stellios had arranged for an extra bed. The layout of the villa worked well for us, with one family in each of the separate villas, but eating together either on one of the balconies or around the barbecue area. Initially there were only 6 sunbeds,(the area around the pool is not huge) but when we asked Stellios, he arranged for more to be brought for us. We were all adults, many young, so everyone wanted to sunbathe! This worked fine. We loved the laundry changes every 3 days, and the wonderful cakes which were delivered at the same time! The only other issue we had - a shower head which wasn't working properly - was sorted over a laundry change before we had even mentioned it. We spent a long time round and in the pool, playing lots of volleyball. We had been warned that it can be very windy in the area, and 6 days of the fortnight were like this. We had to be careful not to lose things over the villa boundary! It was good to have such a lovely villa and pool to be around on these days, as the sandier beaches were uncomfortable as the sand was whipped up, and no boat trips went on these days. We visited and enjoyed Souda beach, Damnoni, Schinaria but we really liked Plakias itself - specially the far end where the volleyball net is! We went to Preveli- be warned that the drive to Palm Beach is 5 km of very twisty narrow road, not great surface and a bit of a walk to the beach at the end. Or you can park at the top of the cliff and have a steep walk down. Might be better to go by boat! We did a boat trip to Frangikastello - just us on the afternoon boat from Tasomanolis, calling in at a couple of other beached on the way back and stops for snorkelling, then seeing the sunset from the sea. We all really enjoyed this. 350 euros for 11 of us. Loads of great places to eat out in Plakias, Sellia and Myrthos. Great holiday thanks!

Exceptional Villa in a beautiful, laid back area of Southern Crete

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Villa mid April 2017, two families with a total party of 10. The Villa was perfectly clean upon arrival and 100% fulfilled all our expectations. All of the stuff you are looking for in a vacation home is available (chairs, sun loungers, large outdoor grille etc.) and of good quality like very comfy matresses etc. In- and outside dining is available. This area in Southern Crete is more laid back compared to the north coast, very friendly people, moderate price level and a beautiful landscape (canyons, mountains, beaches etc.).

Pictures don't lie in this case. Wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

Regarding the pictures on this page, I have to say "what you see is what you get". In reality, the house looks just as good as on the pictures shown here. It has nice interior and exterior as well as a lot of space. The view over the ocean at breakfast is astonishing. The landlords are really friendly and helpful, offering fresh cake whenever they visit the house. Everything looked clean and organized, including the really nice swimming pool. The landlords share a lot of ideas for activities around the island. Only one point of "criticism". It could happen that there's a power outage/ the water is not working anymore. This is not the fault of the landlords (we already knew this happens on Crete from time to time) and they are also really helpful on the phone in case this happens. The point I want to make is, that maybe that could be explained when arriving at the house for the first time. Just to make sure that the renters know that this might happen and how to solve it.

Anyway, 5 Stars for the house and an incredible 2 weeks of vacation.

Perfect house, superb service, beautiful sea-view

  • 5 of 5

From start until we left this property there was an excellent service from the owner. Water, fruit basket, olive oil, honey and a superb orange cake were in the house when we arrived.

A warm welcome by the owner's family and explanation of what to see in the area was a good introduction to the southern part of Crete.

Several possibilities of both outside and inside seatings for larger groups. We were 9 persons travelling together and had both possibility of privacy and also sitting separately in smaller groups.

Outdoor kitchen was perfect and also were the several restaurants/tavernas in both Plakias, Souda and Selia (Taverna Elia is highly recommended).

Villa Thromila is built on the mountain side and has a magnificent view of the Plakias/Souda bay and city.

Several very nice beaches with snorkeling possibilities are also found in this area.

Especially we loved the tranquility of the southern side of the Island. However, it was quite windy on some days, but this was not necessarily a minus as it would otherwise have been too hot on the terrasse.

Both Villa Thromila and the Plakias area can be highly recommended for a relaxing vacation.

Our expectations were fully met.

Very romantic and comfortable place!

  • 5 of 5

In December we’ve made concrete appointments with our nine adult children (and partners) and we’ve booked both apartments for May. We were the third group who hired this place, because it was all newly build.

The apartments are located on a place with a panoramic view over the bay. At the evenings and night you have a romantic illumination of the swimming pool and the balconies. If you stay over there you will need to hire a car to visit places on the island.

The apartments are built side to side, but the other part can only be entered via a small gate of the balcony. This is very nice when you are with a large group. There is a lot of privacy, but also space for coming together.

We have played a lot in the swimming pool. Besides that we’ve walked to the small beaches in the surrounding and to Plakias. One of us has hired a bike and has conquered some mountain tops. We also visited other places on the island, like the beautiful harbour and the fort of Rethimnon.

We also used the large bbq and both kitchens several times to prepare our dinners. Kitchens are very well equipped and the place has comfortable furniture, including excellent beds, bathrooms, toilets, dish machines, chairs and lounge chairs etc.

The hosts are very, very friendly and kind and offer a lot of service. We could phone them whenever this would be needed. They speak German and English and offered us some special Greek products (drinks, honey and cakes). The place is cleaned half way, the pool is cleaned on a daily basis and also the garbage litter is emptied early in the morning.

We have had a wonderful time together with our extended family!

Our villa is located on a hill between the traditional village of Selia and the well known seafront village of Plakias. The natural beauty of the place helped Plakias to become a renowned tourist resort now providing all the facilities that a visitor could wish. Accessed by the magnificent Kotsifou and Kourtaliotiko Gorges, the village of Plakias is set towards the centre of a large bay enclosed within the arms of mountains. Originally a very small and quiet fishing village, it now offers a range of amenities. While it has grown in size over the years, it still retains its special charm that draws many visitors back again, year after year. For those interested in self-catering, the supermarkets, bakeries and other shops offer a very wide range of products, including local and traditional goods. There are, however, a tempting variety of tavernas and cafes. While there is no bank, there are a number of cash point machines, a post office and a doctor. For those wishing to explore further afield, there are books available describing the range of local walks.

Plakias makes a good starting point for walks along the coast to Souda, or up into the encircling hills to other villages such as Sellia or Mirthios, which give spectacular views out to sea. Bicycles are available to hire, as are motorbikes and cars.

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
