I would think there must be. A good place to start would be to contact Anso Travel and see what they can offer.

Thanks Mike

We always stay in Myrthios at Annaview (http://www.annaview.com/) or Chrisanthi apartments
(http://chrisanthi-mirthios.com/en.html).  They both have heating in all their apartments and do also rent during the winter.  I am sure they will make special prices for long stays.  Good luck!


Thanks they look v good but they all look out of my league moneywise for 1 person unless I only try winter. Probably worth getting a quote tho when I've collected my thoughts more

Are there any in the area? I was thinking of 6 - 12 mths to see if I like the area before jumping in to buy

Well I'm home and was happy with Plakias windwise to what I'd feared, in fact the wind was probably worst during the night keeping me awake. When it was too blowy in the daytime in Plakias I went to the rather pleasant and fairly sheltered Mikra Amoudi 2 days and tried Souda another day. Thanks to those who guided me to these other beaches.

Are Souda and Damnoni walkable or reachable by public transport? I'm also TT so not interested in spending too long in bars, I really just want a short sunbathing and reading break!
I often take a stroll to Souda Stewart. It's a very pleasant stroll along the coast and takes me about an hour. There's a couple of bars there for a refreshing cup of tea and the beach is clothes optional and ideal for a slow relaxing afternoon having a read.
The less said about Dambednomi the better as far as I'm concerned but it is walkable Stewart.

I was in Plakias the last two weeks in August last year and for a lot of the time it was very windy - Force 7 and 8 on some days.  For me this was more than a little inconvenient as I use crutches, and was in danger of being blown over, so I needed to use my wheelchair much more than I would have liked.  We had to eat breakfast crowded around a cupboard in the room, as it was too windy to eat on the balcony.

However it is worth noting that if it is windy in Plakias, it is usually sheltered in Souda and Damnoni, and the wind means that the walk is not too hot (even pushing a wheelchair).  You can always get a taxi (if they are running, with the strikes at the moment).  Otherwise it is a good excuse to sit in a bar in Plakias and watch the waves.

We are going back again on 16 to 30 August  - I am not sure if it is a truimph of hope over experience!  If you are there at the end of August, we might meet - or just be planes that pass in the night....

Enjoy it!

I went to Plakias about 10 yrs ago in May for 2 wks and the wind made sunbathing on the beach a bit of an ordeal as far as I can remember but as it hardly seems mentioned here I wonder if my memory is exaggerating how much of a nuisance it was. As I'm thinking of a week there at the end of aug/start of sep i wondered what the reality is regarding wind ???
