Hi, My Partner and I are staying at the Bueno Hotel in September. Could anyone with knowledge of the surrounding area tell me if there are any bars within reasonable walking distance please?
Yes, the main road through Platanias (Leof. Machis Kritis) is full of restaurants and bars. It's about 150 meters. There are also supermarkets, car rentals, travel agencies and a bus stop with local buses to Rethymnon (you buy the tickets for 1,20 in the Kiosk). If you want to eat really good food there is a restaurant called Zisis. You walk towards Rethymnon (turn right on the main road when coming from the beach) for 15 to 20 minutes. It's on the left side of the road and the food is much better than the average restaurants in the area and still not more expensive.
Many thanks for your reply.
