Owner's description:

Twin bedroom (A/C) with sitting area, (TV, DVD,CD), en suite bathroom (washing machine) and steps up to first floor roof terrace.First Floor:  Landing/seating area with doors to roof terrace.

Entering by way of impressive solid wooden, arched doors set into the substantial stone walls that encompass the house you are immediately aware that you have arrived at a property of stature. Just 200m from shops and tavernas and 1km from the sweeping stretch of sandy beach that runs all the way along to Almyrida, this property enjoys an unrivalled location in the centre of the old village and yet, curiously, is so well hidden from sight that few people even know of its existence!

Few houses can claim such a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Inside, a restful colour scheme adds a homely glow with the attractive soft furnishings of the living room further enhanced by contemporary paintings and elegant artefacts. The dining area boasts wooden ceilings and traditional carved furniture while thick stone walls help to keep the house agreeably cool when outside temperatures are at their height.

The sleeping accommodation is spacious and tastefully furnished with en suite bath or shower rooms and air conditioning. The first floor at this property is virtually a private suite comprising a double bedroom with vaulted beamed ceiling and four poster bed, a separate shower room and dedicated seating area. The large roof terrace with its table, chairs and chunky hammock presents the perfect place in which to relax and enjoy a cool drink, particularly at sunset with gorgeous Souda Bay backed by the craggy silhouette of the Akrotiri peninsula sparkling invitingly ahead.

Flanked by low sand cliffs with the imposing White Mountains towering behind, Plaka’s gently shelving sandy beach is considered very family-friendly, attracting swimmers and non-swimmers alike. The village also makes an ideal base for exploring this delightful corner of Crete which has so many interesting places to visit that it is no surprise to see so many visitors return year after year.

Art students, historians and amateur photographers regularly come to marvel at the abundance of well-preserved Venetian and Turkish architecture found in Chania (20km). With its warren of cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, the former capital of Crete is an iconic location and a town that merits visiting both during the day and again in the evening to experience the dramatic differences in atmosphere. Daytime is great for general sightseeing, shopping and perhaps a light lunch at one of the harbour front cafés. Evening sees the ancient monuments illuminated, the quayside lined with craft stalls with locals and visitors alike enjoying the night air perusing the menus of the many waterfront tavernas.
