We stayed for only 6 nights during a 3 week tour of central Crete but will return for a longer stay next time. Our apartment was so well appointed it had everything we needed and more.
We had visited Plakias twice before just for the day from Chania and couldn't work out why we liked it so much - our photos showed a rather scruffy beach and not very beautiful buildings but there was an atmosphere about it we loved. The famous Plakias wind blew strongly for the whole 6 days this trip, but we found it only invigorating and loved the place even more.
This year we had time to explore the surrounding area and discovered many little beaches and coves to swim in, each with its own character, beautiful mountains, history, interesting monasteries and people who made time to speak to you, even at the end of a busy season. Cities like Chania, beautiful as they are, seemed a little harsh and rushed by comparison.
The owner Manolis made us feel welcome and was very patient answering our questions. Our apartment was spacious, quiet and cleaned by a young lady who was both thorough and sensitive to our needs. We could see the mountains from our balcony and a little strip of the beach but the studios at the front have the ultimate seaview and facing south, are a great place to top up tans.
And all this at a reasonable price.
