Hi Dotty,

Hi All,

   Although we've never visited Plakias, it is posts like this that convinced us that it is our sort of place. 30'ish years ago, our first holiday together was to Crete (Elounda, when it really was "a sleepy little village") and since then we've had great holidays all over Greece, always trying somewhere new, and so we've never returned to Crete, even though we both thought that the Cretan people were in some way special.

   When the time came to plan our 2004 holiday, the urge to try somewhere new seemed to have faded, and as this would be our first holiday without the family in tow for many years, we decided it would be the ideal opportunity to re-vist Crete.
   After much brochure-browsing we realized that most of Northern Crete seemed to have been "over-developed"(to our eyes, at least), and that the South-West seemed to be just what we were looking for. A bit of research on the net and we had our shortlist; a bit more searching brought this site to our attention and our shortlist suddenly became very short indeed.

   First Choice were offering some very generous discounts at that time so the booking was made and we arrive in Plakias on 18 May.

   We are both convinced that we've picked the right spot and everything we've read on this site confirms it.

   So thanks to everyone for the wealth of information posted on the site, and special thanks to the people who have answered my queries in the past. It seems that we will be in Plakias at the same time as John(Ostraco) and we are looking forward to thanking him in person. (Mythos with Metaxa chaser okay for you John?)  
Bye for now

John and Lorraine

Thanks to everyone for their replies, SWMBO is now reassured that the
industrial-grade toupee tape will not be required .

Well, we've taken the plunge and will be in Plakias on May 18 2004  
Really looking forward to a nicely chilled out fortnight and of course the nicely chilled Mythos  
However, SWMBO is a tad concerned about "THE WIND" which is often mentioned. Is it quite as bad as is rumoured?

Thanks Andy.
Sorry to have committed the "newbie" sin of posting before looking. I didn't realize that only 60 days posts were shown by default. I'll make sure I look at all posts before asking my next question.

Hi all,

Although I've been holidaying in Greece for a good few years, I've never visited Plakias.  The enthusiastic posts in the forum have perked up my interest and I wonder if anyone has any info on the appts in the title.
