“Peaceful with beautiful sea views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We are staying in one of these idyllic apartments at the Souda end of Plakias on the south coast of Crete about one and a half hours easy drive from Chania. Run by Manolis and Filio this scrupulously clean place has well equipped kitchen, balcony with views over the Lybian sea and is comfortable in every way. Just 5 minutes walk from the main town and expansive bay with sandy beach this place provides all the peace (except of the gentle sound of the sea) one could wish for but all the access to excellent nearby restaurants and town activities. The fish on the south coast appear to be more varied and less expensive than on the north and there are wonderful boat trips to secluded and interesting beaches. This is one place we would recommend without hesitation and the season starts early ( end March at least).

Room Tip: Book early

We were guests from Filo and Manolis this April. The welcome was very warm and heartly.
We had a very nice appartment with view to sea. The kitchenette is fully equipped. Filo and Manolis were always there if we needed something. Manoli makes his own olive oil, very tasty ...
We enjoyed both the stay there very, felt a little like being at home...

Room Tip: The most wonderful appartment ( really !) is that on the roof. But normally it´s booked fully during...

Manolis and family run a handful of lovely self-catering rooms less than ten yards from the beach. Just far enough outside of the village to be quiet, yet less than five minutes walk from many tavernas.

Rooms are clean, airy, and well-serviced.

Views from the terrace to the south and south-west over the Libyan Sea are fantastic.

Highly recommended!
