Originally a very small and quiet fishing village, Plakias town has become a renowned tourist resort now providing all the facilities our guests would wish for a self-catering holiday. Within walking distance you can find from supermarkets and bakeries, including a very wide range of products local and traditional goods, to a post office, a variety of tavernas, cafes, bars, ATMs, doctor’s office and souvenir shops. While it has grown in size over the years, it still retains its special charm that draws many visitors back again, year after year.
Accessed by the magnificent Kotsifou and Kourtaliotiko Gorges, the village of Plakias is set towards the centre of a large bay enclosed within the arms of mountains. Sellia and Mirthios mountain villages are nearby with traditional restaurants with spectacular views of the sea, surrounding hills and Plakias bay.
Close to Plakias and our Villa, you will find numerous amazing natural beaches in the whole Greece, such as the palm beach of Preveli, Triopetra, Agios Pavlos, Ammoudi, Damnoni, Schinaria and Souda. Those beaches are famous for their crystal clear blue waters and attract many visitors as well as locals from around the island. Also, you can experience some wonderful activities, like horse riding on the beach, scuba diving, trekking and water sports (at Damnoni beach). From the working harbour of Plakias, there are several boat trips to other beaches and villages along the south coast.
