Magnifique endroit

  • 5 of 5

Hôtes très hospitaliers. Chambres avec cuisine équipée, spacieuses, au calme et avec une petite terrasse. Belle vue sur la mer et très joli jardin bien entretenu. Il vaut mieux par contre disposer d une voiture car le lieu est en hauteur. Excellent rapport qualité prix.

Welcome to the most southerly point of Europe-the beautiful island of Crete.

In the centre of the south cost,at the shores of the Libyan sea the picturesque area called Gialia,is situated with its centre ,the village PLAKIAS.

During the last 20 years the village of Plakias has developed into a modern summer resort,while at the same time the natural beaty of the surrounding has been preserved.

The village of Plakias is situated in the south of the Prefecture of Rethymno, at the shore of the Libyan Sea.

The distances to the three main towns of the island of Crete are as follows: Rethymno 35 km, Heraklio 110 km, Chania90km.

Sunshine during most months of the year as well as our healthy and refreshing climate guarantee most agreeable holidays.

Enjoy the sun, the sea, and the clean, sandy beaches (equipped with umbrellas, sun-beds, showers and life guards). Should you be an aficionado of water sports, we recommend you visit Damnonni beach and Plakias.

The central location of the village of Plakias allows for visits to the neighbouring beaches of Polyrizo, Korakas, Souda, Damnoni, Ammoudi, Skinaria and the Lagoon of Preveli. Also at a close distance are the Monastery of Preveli and the picturesque mountain villages of Rodakino, Sellia, Myrthios, Mariou, Asomatos, Levkogia, Gianniou, Koxare, Mpale, Atsipades, Palioloutra, Agkouseliana, Ai Giannis, Kanevos and Kali Sykia.

Furthermore, the overall picture of our municipality is influenced by two rivers, which helped to create the two extraordinary gorges of Kotsifou and Kourtalioti. Their natural beauty makes it worthwhile to explore them either on foot or by bicycle. On a similar line walks through the olive groves or to the near-by mountain villages will give you the opportunity to experience the rich flora and fauna of this area.

The locals are friendly and hospitable. They continue to live their traditions and customs; they speak their dialect and love their Cretan music (Lyre) and dances. You will always be welcome to participate in traditional feasts such as the sheering of the sheep, the grape harvest, the raki distillation and the feast of tourism.

The infrastructure of this area covers all demands. You can relish the traditional Cretan cuisine, which is based on fresh and local products and of course on the ubiquitous olive oil.

Special menthion in this description should be given to the magical lagoon of Preveli with its palms trees and the

monastery of the same name, which is absolutely worth seeing. It is the estuary of the Megalos Potamos

(big river) ,which created the Kourtalioti gorge.

Given you are up to it with respect to disposition and condition,you can explore the mountains and gorges

on foot,as for example the Preveli gorge,through which the Megalos Potamos river finds its way to the sea,

displaying century old palm trees along its banks.At the estuary an enhancing sandy beach invites you to a refreshing swim.

Also worth seeing are the imposing gorges of Kourtalioti and Kotsifou with their waterfalls and rivers.

We suggest you follow their course and experience a different feeling of relaxation and refreshing.

A most important aspect regarding walking tours is the safety provided in this area.

In area of Plakias they are 4 museums who you can visit.

The monastery hosts the wonder working Holy Cross. Further religious object are exhibited in the museum of the monastery.

Folklore museum in the village of Sellia and Lefkogia exhibit magnificent hand-woven textiles,tools and decorative items and allow a closer look into the history of the area.

Furthermore the Papageorgoulakio museum in Asomatos is worth visiting. Papas Michalis, the priest,founded it with much dedication and love for his home village.

In this enchating surrounding you will meet Cretans with slender bodies and a stature, which expreeses the pride they feel for their island. Local women with headscarves friendl approach you to offer you a glass of tsikoudia-hospitality is a main characteristic on this island. Traditions and customs have deen preserved;

during festivities you will see traditional costumes and dances according to the heritage of the ancestors.

Each year from April to October our visitors are given the opportunity to participate in various festivities and

events. Which are organised in Plakias area.

We wish you pleasant and relaxing holidays!
