Plakias / Re: 'New' Creta Mare pictures
« Last post by Daniel on June 07, 2018, 10:46:48 AM »
Thanks for those photos.
We are currently in Paleochora for 10 days and wishing that we were back in Plakias.
Will post a report on Hotel Aris in Paleochora v Crete Mere in Plakias and Paleochora v Plakias when we return home.
But Plakias looks like a hands down winner !!

Here's another outside view. There's nowhere to hang wet clothes so we've had to improvise.

Here's from inside the room. Very good soundproofed doors plus a net covered door.

Plakias / 'New' Creta Mare pictures
« Last post by Noggy on June 07, 2018, 10:00:46 AM »
Here's a picture of the 'new' Creta Mare from the outside. Looks very good. Because of the forum restrictions I'll post one pic at a time. Sorry for the small size, only 128k max allowed.

There's still a problem with ants. The wife, being a Norwegian, freaked out and spent the first ten minutes hunting and killing them on the balcony. She then moved indoors and started moving furniture around. Found some near the balcony door so freaked out even more and continued her killing spree. She's gone home now leaving me and the ants in peace for two more weeks.

When I got up this morning and looked out from the balcony thers was a fog bank from the left all the way to Souda. Couldn't see Gavdos. As I walked towards Souda it started coming in to land. Quite spectacular.  There were still lots of people Sunbathing on the beach (fogbathing?). By the time I got back to Creta Mare it was completely blanketed in Fog. Could still see the sun, though.

Anyone seen the webcam this morning, fog so thick you can't see the water, same in Sfakia.

Never seen it like that before

Thanks Jackie, i think I could manage that, it sounds lovely !! I have previously been swimming in Makrigialos, Milatos, Panormos and Ligaria but they are all relatively sheltered xxx I'm just a big scaredy cat :) :)

Thank you Yvonne, you are kind - although I could ramble on for the rest of the week about Plakias, in text or verbally! So many good walks as well as the beaches,

Maybe some of us could consider updating things? With Plakias having gone down from four travel agents to one, for people travelling from the UK, I'd hate to see it forgotten. Not presuming to fill Lance's shoes, but perhaps something for more recent visitors?

Anyhow, just a thought, don't mean to be intrusive.
