Plaka, Chania Prefecture, Crete
Annie's Villa has been approved by the Greek Tourist Board EOT and is legal to advertise and rent.
EOT Reference Number 10 42 K 12 3K 03656 0 0.

The property has 2 bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin, but also has a sofa bed in the lounge so can sleep up to 6. There are floor to ceiling wardrobes so plenty of space to hand your holidays clothes. Patio doors open out from each room, with a table on each for further lounging. The lounge patio area looks out to the sea from the front and the White Mountains to the left, it is truly mesmeric. A few minutes walk takes you down to Plaka Square, a very special place indeed.

There are several restaurants and a Sports Bar, but more a bar for people watching that happens to show sport. It is also where our mail gets delivered to so we have pop in occasionally ;) There is satellite TV...

We had a wonderful time at the villa. The outside area is wonderful with the shared pool and two balconies. We used one balcony for breakfast and the other one in the late evenings. There is A/C which works really well. The roof terrace has...More

Thank you for the review - I have had new covers made for all the roof furniture, which I am sending out this week. The benefit of the Villa being hillside is the lovely breezes which are welcoming in the High Summer. Having a car...More

Additional amenities & feature info
There is a fully equipped kitchen and also a BBQ available. There is air conditioning in each room and also ceiling fans. There are plenty of travel plugs, and alarm clocks in the bedrooms - in case you have a trip booked! There is a dining table in the living room, though we mostly tend to eat on the outside tables to take in the beautiful views!

There is a dongle available for wi-fi access though you would need to buy airtime from the local Vodaphone shop. However, all the local bars etc do also provide free wi-fi.

The pool is used at your own risk. The plot is shared with 2 other Villas, however the other Villas are owned and not let, so are quite often empty and you have the area to yourself.

About the neighbourhood
Plaka and the surrounding villages were used for filming some of the scenes from Fiddler on the Roof, in fact there is a statuette in the main square in tribute. It is not actually square, it is more of a strip, but it is a very special place to us. The local restaurants offer excellent food and wine at very reasonable rates. We eat out mostly, but a couple of nights like to BBQ at the Villa too.

Almerida beach is close by, and due to it being shallow until very far out, it is excellent for young children. Further on you also have Kalyves, more beautiful beaches and restaurants. The town of Chania itself has to be seen. A bustling harbour town it has a lovely market, including Leather Street, and beautiful back lanes originally designed to the width of 2 donkeys.

How to get there
Airport: Chania: 30.0 km
Ferry: Souda Bay: 17.0 km
Easyjet fly to Chania and Heraklion daily. Whilst Chania is closest to the Villa, Heraklion is only 90 minutes away. The ferry port of Souda is also very close. Whilst it is possible to get around without a car, I would recommend hiring a car to get the most out of the area. We have used Flisvos and Autoclub, both have offices close by.
