I read in the newspapers that Plakias all together had a good  season 2005 and that there are Hotels having guest until 15th of November. In Hapimag a small group of pensioners will make their overwinter holidays and also Anna's has guest. Surely Plakias will be again the most lively village on the south coast this winter. Let's hope we dont get too much of rain and cold days, just enough for the olives and flowers.

I hear bad news from Iliomanolis, my good friend that's has a taverna in the Kotsifou gorge near Kanevos. I am a little afraid to call, as I dont want to make things more sad as they are maybe. Anyone that has been to Manolis and Maria and the girls in the best Taverna from the Plakias area. Please reply.......

The ghost army, named Droussolites appear every year around the 17th of May and YES once I was there on that date and I you could see a fog hanging around the castle in the morning. Many years ago in Plakias there was a men named Barba Spiros ( uncle Spiros) he used to make a trip to the castle every year around that date, since he was an ancestor from the army that attacked the castle in 1823. You'll will believe it or not. His last trip was on the day he died, they found him dead on the beach.

Hello there is even a small Venetian Fortress, later used by the The Turks on a hill just outside Plakias named Koules, now there is an excellent accommodation a little lower to find there with the same name
Than near Koxare there are the ruins of a Turkish fortress with in front a Byzantine chapel, strange the Turks were afraid to take it away.

In April the weather can be very nice. Some days are good for a long walk, for which this area is very good, some days you can get the first tan on the beach.
Nights are little cooler.
In Plakias its a depending on the foreign easter holidays if everything is open. For sure you'll find some good taverns open, like mouses and sofia or harakas.
and coming direct you'll notice that you can get cheap rooms. No April is a good alternative if you cant come in the Summer.

Plakias / Horse Riding
« on: July 22, 2005, 09:23:16 AM »

Go this website with information about horse riding. Its in Pitsidia a little village just before Matala, about 1,5 hrs from Plakias. Some years ago you could go for donkey riding in Hapimag, if still available, maybe this will suit you as an alternative.
