Is the Gavdos ferry up and running,or not? Anyone know?????    Alex

Svetlana from the Smerna bar told me that Lefteris does Gavdos trips on sundays if enough people are interested.
Contact the Smerna bar for more info.

Spottttt - My (and several others') understanding is that the end 'shower' is allowed to run continuosly so that the water in the pipe doesn't get scaldingly hot. Maybe not a strong arguement at the moment but makes sense in the height of summer.

Maybe it also reduces the risk of legionella developing.

Will be landing in Crete in one weeks time to look for work for the season and would ideally like to find some in Plakias. Am I right in thinking that because the town is so small that jobs will already be taken up by the locals and expats?
Really like the sound of Plakias and the hostel their. Also is it pronounced Plaa-kee-ass?

I think that you're right in your thinking: not much jobs to find!

Yes, it's pronounced Plakee-ass.

Veel plezier!

Greetings to all!

Does anyone living in Plakias, or staying there now, could get me the email address of the pharmacy?

I'd like to inquire about the availability of a certain product. (No it's not Viagra!)

I just got a quote from Alianthos ( in Plakias:

A Fiat Seicento for one week, including a driver that will take me from HER airport to Plakias, for 175,- .
Since it saves me from driving the stretch in the dark, after a sleep inducing flight, I'm quite happy with that.

You're welcome Dutchy

Well, I mean a private room with a Greek family, or with somebody that lives there and has a unused room.

Something very basic and cheap. Just a bed and a shower will do, as I'm spending as much time as possible outdoor.
Since the recession hit me quite hard, i'm not willing to spend 30,- euro's a night this time...

Depends what you mean by a private room Dutchy, try the 'Acommadation' link in the 'Article sysytem'.
