Plakias / Tourist Event in September
« on: August 12, 2017, 06:22:42 PM »

A few years ago I was on holiday in Plakias late September when a big social event was held in the car park square.  The local tavernas provided food and drink and there was a Greek dancing display, live music and various other entertainments - a fabulous time was had by all.  Does anyone know if this was a one off, or is it a regular annual event.  I ask because I will be in Plakias late next month.

Thank you for sharing that info with the forum.  I had also noticed the transfer issue and in fact was considering Kalymnos instead of Crete due to the high cost of transfer from Heraklion to Plakias.

Many thanks for the directions.  I have been to Plakias before but tend to use the tavernas along the front overlooking the sea as I love the views - Gioma being a favourite.

Thanks for recommending.  I will be visiting Plakias in September and would like to visit.  Please could you be more specific about location as I am unfamiliar with the Cozy Café.  BTY I am staying at Kosta Chrysoula, where is it in relation to there.

Have booked for Plakias September 2017 with Olympic and transfers are included.  I made the booking last October with Olympic direct over the telephone.  I depart from Gatwick with Enterair, the Polish airline who I have always found to be very efficient.

Hi, Is anyone prepared to say how cheap the flights with TC and EasyJet are for 2017.  Just wondering if it may be worth going independent instead of with Olympic.  I fly from Gatwick and have been unable to access any good deals.

In May this year, transfer was 3.5 hours both ways.  However, we were offered comfort breaks at drop offs/pick ups en route.

May I request our forum administrator draw a line under this thread as it has become most unsavoury. Thanks Ploppy.

It's not looking very hot, apart from a couple of days, for my 2 weeks from 13th May.  Just hope it's not windy.

Depends what time Christmas lunch is ie: if early then toasted crumpets, if late then smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.  Happy Christmas to all and I look forward to being in Plakias May2014.

Booked with Olympic for next May £385 staying at Kostas Chrysoula - fantastic bargain despite the long transfer time.

I am taking a chance and have booked with Olympic at KC (v good deal) for May 2014- have only had to pay £50 deposit. The airline showing has a prefix QS but I have no doubt it will change several times before next May.

Lysseous has always been a favourite of mine and I am puzzled as to where one could be sat  to hear the 'ping' of the microwave.
 However, having returned from Plakias on 28th May following a 2 week holiday I was surprised how few tables were occupied at Lysseous each evening. In previous years it was a case if you did not get there by 7.30pm there would not be a table available.

It is not only Lysseous who seem to be suffering in the present economic climate, apart from Gorgona and Kri Kri the tavernas had significantly fewer diners than at the same time in previous years as holidaymakers seem to be opting for self catering.
