Plakias / What's Changed?
« on: May 04, 2016, 04:12:45 PM »
Hello all....
We had to cancel our Plakias trip last year (lost a small fortune!)... we are very much looking forward to visiting this July but --- what's changed? What should we brace ourselves for? Anything unpleasant? Is the Far End still the same? Is any of Bar Platia still existant as a bar..?

Taverna Manoussos is one of our favourites!

We are really missing Plakias already this year and have booked accommodation for next year.... But how is it all looking? How are Mousses, Sofia, etc., coping? Still umbrellas on concrete??

Anyone stayed at the Panorama, above the town? Looks OK and has a pool..?

We will now have to wait till next year to eat there again :-)

We are really upset not to be able to get to Plakias this year. I hope everyone has a great time this summer!

At 5.0am this morning,  a fire swept  through the beach side restaurants at plakias,  completely destroying them from Sofia to ostracio.  As far as I know  no one  was injured  fortunately.  A sad day for the town,  I  have many happy memories of eating there.  I hope there is sufficient time to rebuild before the peak of the season.

Oh no ... how awful.... we are still not sure if we can make it this year - we have a new dog with separation issues and, even though we have the air tickets and accommodation paid for, we may have to miss out :-(

Staff at Monarch airlines have agreed to 700 redundancies and pay cuts of up to 30% as part of a deal to save the Luton-based company.


(Thanks for that Stuart - they're still holding on then?)

I heard a rumour that Monarch might be in difficulties. Anyone else heard this??

Yes we photo'd them at Plakias and at Ag. Roumeli.
Ooooooooooh!  Can you upload some of your pictures?
Yes can do Noopsy. Luckily they don't all have me in!

And one from Plakias - I have left out the one with me :-)
