Terramara Apartments are situated close to the village of Plakalona, near Kissamos on the North Western coast of Crete. We visited these apartments during the first week of September this year. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners Margaret and Andrew and their gorgeous dog Harry!! The view from these apartments is just breathtakingly beautiful. They are set on a hill in olive groves overlooking coastal mountains and the Bay of Kissamos. We had followed the instructions on their web site as to how to get there and found them no bother.
There are 4 apartments in this small family run establishment. All are very well equipped with en suite rooms, kitchenette, beautiful patios and lovely gardens which were at their best when we were there. There is a small swimming pool and the most friendly bar you have ever been in.
As well as the equipment supplied in your kitchenette there are washing and ironing facilities available which means a lot if you are moving to another location after leaving Terramara. You're travelling with all clean clothes!!!!We did a lot of touring from there also. The nicest place we visited was Elafonisi, which is on the south West coast, about an hour and a half from Terramara. This is a stunning beach with turquoise waters and clean golden sands.
Both Chania airport and Herakalion airports are easily reached from Terramara.
I would recommend Terramara to anyone who wants to experience the real Crete and some real peace and quiet.
