Plakias / Re: Still fantastic
« Last post by paleo on November 16, 2017, 09:09:15 PM »
Sorry - no idea about the bars , never go . Also rarely eat out except if we have visitors during our stay but got some takeaway dolmadakia at otherwise empty Mousses ( I think it was) last week - the rest in that cluster seemed closed - get Feta Pitta odd times from the Xekoristo , it stays open all year except for their annual hols. Travelled 45 mins to our favourite in Argyroupoli , the Archaia Lappa - closed. Went for another favourite takeaway to the one in Kanevos - closed. Unusually called in to the middle one in Damnoni , the Mesogeios (Middle Earth) and had a v nice meal  - closed the day after (pattern emerges - trying to tell us something) . However wife's homemade gigantes and feta baked in tom sauce as good as any you'll find. The sea and Timios Stavros (new section of 'paved' track 1/2 way up) still open for business though - to work off the gigantes and baked feta , and dakos etc etc.

Good to hear the weather is still fine.  Are any of the restaurants and/or bars open at this time of the year?
Enjoy your stay.

Y - very wavy - but warm waves . Sometimes calm , sometimes wavy makes swims different. And a bit of wind means you can drip dry.

Minus 2 this morning and scraping ice off car windscreen at 06:05am.....no heating on train....Monday morning joy .....so to hear Plakias is still fab is a tonic on the day like this in Scotland!  Am very envious and just waiting on EasyJet opening up flights for September 2018.   Booked in with Kostas Chrysoula as usual and looking forward to that already !

Came back for the 4th time this year - still tee shirt weather - 4 or 5 people at the  far end , a dozen at Amoudaki - water still in the 20s so swimming a couple of times every day - everything very laid back - olives about to be picked - things could be worse.

That's half the problem........you book something that fits your timetable (for example we have to travel up to Gatwick from Plymouth and back) and then Olympic go and change it...Gatwick's chairs aren't that comfortable and this year the two ladies sitting behind us wouldn't keep quiet so no-one got any sleep anyway. I am still prepared to tolerate it for the sake of my time in Plakias but it is really annoying !

The flights to Heraklion that Olympic is offering for 2018 from LGW are at pretty anti-social times, either for arriving in Crete or UK. Having spent a long night in October at the airport waiting for the trains to start, when Olympic changed the flights at the last minute, I am reluctant to volunteer for it.

This year we had one week in Plakias followed by one week in Paleochora. Next year, 2 weeks in Plakias. 'Nuff said.
