Plakias / Car hire
« on: February 14, 2019, 06:08:43 PM »
After numerous visits to Plakias over the past 27 years some friends are joining us in June. As usual we will hire a car from Autoholidays at Chania airport as we've always found them good and cheap. However on the off chance we need a second car for separate trips I was wondering what the car-hire places were like in Plakias. Any recommendations gratefully received.

Tried accessing the Plakias webcams over the last few days-curious to see if there was any snow! However they are not coming up. Are they down or is it some issue at my end? 

Plakias / Wind!

When is the best time of year to avoid the really high winds you sometimes get in Plakias? We've been coming since '92 and have just been charged with giving advice to a friend who plans visiting this summer. We would reckon September.

Where to stay / Two-bedroom apartment
« on: October 12, 2008, 08:41:14 PM »
Returning to Plakias last week in October to experience what it's like end of season. Posted before trying to find a larger  apartment for 4 but all seem to have one bedroom and convertible bed in the living room rather than two bedrooms. This tends not to suit as unlike on work days at home I am up at the crack of dawn and would disturb our teenage kids who have discovered how to lie in. Any ideas? Also what can we expect in terms of weather, places being open etc? We have always been previously end of May/beginning of June. Thanks.

Plakias / Ferries to/from Paleochora
« on: July 30, 2008, 12:57:37 PM »
Hello to all,
hope that someone can help.
We will be visiting Crete during last week in October. As well as our usual time in Plakias we plan to visit friends who are relocating to Paleochora. Is it at all possible in anyones experience to travel along the south coast between these 2 towns, even with a car and that late in the year?

Maps show those little dotted lines that indicate ferries, but we have never been aware of ferries coming that distance.

Another query - would you know if having hired a car for a week, a company would allow for one car being left in one town and another being picked up in a second town?

Thanks and best wishes


Gossip / October Hols
« on: January 11, 2008, 11:40:30 AM »

Please can those of you who have experience of Plakias in October give us some idea of how things are there.
We usually visit in May half-term hols and therefore had two weeks of unsettled wet weather last time. So we hope that in Oct half -term ie last week in the month, the sea will be warmer, the wind gently breezing and the sun comfortably warm - aah.
Any comments, plus is it quiter than May or similar.



Where to stay / Larger studios/apartments

We are a family of 4 due to return to Plakias at the end of May (half-term) and still looking for the perfect place to stay. Kids are 10 and 12 years and don't fit small places easily. We have been looking for a good sized apt for 4, close to P centre and with a balcony with for that extra beer and a nice view after the kids have gone to bed. Oasis was OK with a pool, but too small and no view. We wonder if we would be better with 2 adjoining studios?
Does anyone have recommendations?
Nice to speak to you, have been guesting the forums for a few years!
