Peaceful surroundings with views of Spinalonga, and only a stroll from Plaka village with it's beach and restaurants. Short drive to Elounda. My wife and I spent two weeks here in July / Aug 2014 and balanced days by the pool with tours of the region. We've been to Western Crete in the past but were still stunned by the... more

Situated a short walk from Plaka village, the return journey was welcome after a meal at local, friendly tavernas. We preferred the relative quietness of our early season... more

Management response:

We are sorry that a construction at Plaka seafront was taking place at the time of the visit. This is out of character with the area, as can be seen from other feedback. What little construction there is, has always taken place between November and March each year in the 7 years we have owned the property. more
