About the neighbourhood
Vilana House is located very close to Koxare Village. A lovely canteen can be found there. A taverna can be found in Pale, 5 min away by car. For super markets and shops guests can find everything they will need in Spili town, 15 minutes driving. Also Plakias a popular tourist resort and can be found 20 minutes away from the villa by car. Originally a very small and quiet fishing village, it now offers a range of amenities. Plakias is renowned for it’s natural beauty, providing all the facilities that a visitor could wish for. Along the main road of the village there are several supermarkets, bakeries, ATM machines, post office, a doctor’s office, restaurants, tavernas, cafes and beach bars while on the beach there
Getting around
By air: There are daily scheduled flights from 'Eleutherios Venizelos' Athens International Airport to 'Nikos Kazantzakis' Heraklion International Airport. Charter flights from most European destinations arrive from April to November to the airport. By Sea: Daily itineraries link the port of Heraklion and Chania with the port of Piraeus (Athens). By bus: There are daily and frequent bus services connecting Heraklion with the main towns and villages of the entire prefecture as well as with the towns of Chania and Rethymnon.  As soon as you confirm your reservation, I will send you all the necessary information and directions, of how you will drive to the villa from the airport. Kind Regards, Valia Kokkinou Property Manager.
