This was a lovely, new villa. The owners were relaxed and helpful. The view was beyond expectations. It was a relaxing and pleasant place to stay. The pool was small, but fun for our 2 children (8 and 5). Decent beds, air-conditioning in bedrooms. The only negative thing about our stay was that the electricity went out a couple of times, although Yannis came to fix it promptly. A suggestion might be to provide guests with directions to the villa via Plakias as well as the more scenic (and more difficult) route via Sellia. We had a fabulous stay. Thank you

Plakia-Sellia is a pleasant place. Jet skis but no quad bikes nearer than Rethymno . Good beaches esp Damnino with taverna and boat trip young to prevail also good to visit by road to visit the monastery there -worth seeing. The villa is up a longish zigzag, careful driving required, and not feasible walking to Plakeas. We had a good holiday somewhat pricey

Eigenlich alles vorhanden, wenn hier nicht groß gekocht werden soll. Über einige Spülmaschinentabs hätten wir uns gefreut, sollten wir aber auf Nachfrage bitte selbst kaufen. Die Matratzen waren uns zu hart, aber das sieht sicherlich jeder Gast anders. Gereinigt wurde auf Wunsch täglich, frische Handtücher und Bettwäsche gab es ebenfalls in einer Woche zusätzlich. Der Roboter-Poolreiniger war am Morgen bereits aktiv, ohne dass wir hier jemanden gehört haben. Das WIFI hat Verbesserungspotential, ein Sonnenschutz (-Schirm) wäre von Vorteil, da nachmittags unsere kleine Terrasse in praller Sonne stand.....Sicherlich alles kleine „Meckereien“ und der Blick auf das Meer und die Bucht von Plakiás ist einfach ein Traum. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gern wieder (dann gibts auch 5 Punkte plus Stern, wenn es einen Sonnenschutz gibt....)

Une semaine de pur bonheur avec vue sur la baie de Plakias! Parfait pour se reposer, au calme, l'équipement de la villa haut de gamme. Nous n'avons pas souffert de la chaleur, toujours de l'air de ce côté de la Crête. Très bon accueil, très belles plages et restaurants très bon marché. Je conseille vivement.

Waren mit der Ferienwohnung alles in allem zufrieden. Modern eingerichtet und alles vorhanden. Hatten die Mittlere der 3 Wohnungen, wobei die Aussicht der Wohnung links sicherlich die Beste ist. Trotzdem tolle Aussicht. Es ist etwas verwirrend wegen der Schlüsselübergabe, die nicht stattfand, macht aber nichts, da der Schlüssel steckte. Hatten nichts zu meckern, alles toll. Sogar wurde täglich geputzt, der Müll entsorgt und die Handtücher getauscht. Klasse. Kenne ich so nicht. Einzig gestört hat, daß es keine Steckdose im Bad gibt.

It was amazing villa, absolutely gorgeous part of Crete. plakias is a 10 min drive and has so much to offer. I would definitely recommend a car for this villa. I was already planning another stay in the villa. But 2 things on the last day changed my mind. 1) I wanted to use the pool before we checked out, but the pool was being cleaned from 8.30am (when I woke up) until we checked out at 11am - this was very disappointing as we stayed for a short time and wanted to make the most of it. 2) I was accused of stealing 2 towels. I think they should keep better track of their inventory before they throw these accusations around - it can be very off putting.

This villa offers a lot of advantages, but above all a magnificent view on Plakias and the coastline and the sea. All rooms with huge windows, so the whole appartment is very friendly and bright and cosy. It is located on one of the hills above Plakias, and is a perfect spot for those who love nature and quietness. To enjoy your meals on the top terrace with this gorgeous view is really awesome. The service was really perfect, thanks to the nice ladies coming every day to clean the appartment. If you like, you may hike down the hill and through the olive groves to Plakias. But it is recommended to have a car when staying in the villa. All the more, you can enjoy the touristic hotspots of the region around Plakias (palm beach of Preveli, Mátala, Agia Galini, Frangocastello etc).

The perfect stay. We didn't want to leave! Amazing views, really fabulous. Peaceful and relaxing. A big modern apartment (bigger than it looks!) very clean and comfortable bed and sofa. The team came everyday to clean the pool filters and empty bins which we didn't expect. They are very friendly! Added bonus - all of the patio sliding doors have net doors attached which is fantastic for keeping any insects out but allowing the breeze to come in. A couple of very small issues we had were resolved immediately, the team are very quick at responding which was great. The apartment is quite high up on the hillside with steep roads so I would recommend car hire if you want to explore Plakias and surrounding villages. Very easy to drive around as the roads are small and relatively quiet. We did see quite a few taxis so not essential to do car hire but allows more freedom. Windy in this area so was a little noisy on a few nights- I quite liked it but just bring your ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! This place really is lovely and relaxing, I would highly recommend. Thanks again Stratos, 5 stars for you and your great team!

Das Häuschen liegt wirklich sehr schön am Hang über der Bucht von Plakias, der Blick ist toll! Der eigene Pool ist wunderbar - und wird täglich sauber gemacht. Es gibt zwei Schlafzimmer und zwei Badezimmer. Der Wohn-Ess-Bereich ist großzügig und sehr hübsch. Mit dem Auto ist man schnell unten im Ort. - Für Familien mit kleinen Kindern: Die Treppe ist steil und eng, da bekommen Mütter möglicherweise Angst um ihre Kleinen. ;-) Im TV gibt es nur griechisches Fernsehen, KiKa ist also nicht. WLAN ist unten zu schwach, um deutsches Fernsehen ruckelfrei über Laptop zu gucken. Oben in der Nähe des Routers geht es aber. - Supermärkte sind etwas teurer als bei uns. Einen kleinen Laden gibt es oben in Sellia, mehrere größere in Plakias. In Rethymnon Richtung Chania gibt es einen Lidl. Mittags sind wir immer essen gegangen, das ist günstiger als bei uns. Es gibt einige schöne Strände in der Nähe. Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen!
