September update
« on: September 11, 2018, 05:28:18 PM »
Checked into the updated Crete Mare with George at 3.30 pm.
Only one sugestion about his Raki:
Don't get it on your clothes as I suspect that it is corrosive!!
But that did not stop us from enjoying his hospitality.

Updates and modifications to the place are excellent and improve an already beautiful hotel.

Been to see Siffi and Anna and had a beer with them .
Will be eating with them a couple of times during this holiday.

Table booked at Gio Ma for 8.15.

Flights with Ryanair first class and arrived at Chania 15 mins early ( but could do without the fanfair  on arrival.)
Picked a car up at the airport and leasurly drive down to Plakias.
Will update as the holiday goes on.o

Major thunderstorm and heavy rain overnight but now fine by lunch time.

As promised, an update on the town.

Fair bit of work has been going on since our last visit September of last year.
The actual town and Main Street from Alianthos thru to Crete Mare is very much as it was, with just a few minor changes/improvements.

The main building work is on the periphery of the town.

Multicoloured Sea View Luxury Appartments are now open on the hillside behind the main supermarket.

Just behind that supermarket, and attached to it,are now Belvedere Spa and Appartments

On the main junction, by the Alianthos Hotel, is now a new block of appartments with a snack bar/caffe in front called Blu.

Now on to the road towards the "far end":
There is now a sign for a major new development next to Plakias Resorts.
Looks like it could be for a lot of apartments, according to Siffi.

Additional building next to Plakias Suits of just a small development.

2 largish blocks of appartments part built behind Antonines Place.

Various other bits and pieces of building going on but not major work.

Will update on the holiday later in the week.

The 2 blocks are a bit back from Antonia Place so do not encroach on it.
How big?
I will have another look tomorrow afternoon when passing andreport back.

Back from our morning stroll along the front.
The two blocks of new appartments are about 120 yards behind and slightly to thr right as you look from the sea..
Do not look like they will have much, if any, effect on Antonios Place.
Had a word with the team building these apartments.
There will be only 6 in total but they will be 2 or 3 bedroom luxury appartments, more like holiday homes than holiday appartments.
Looking at other builds in the area, this now seems to be more of the norm.
No longer one bed studios.
Now multi roomed appartments.
As for the rest of the town, a lot of buildings have been updated and some have hade slight additions to then.
But all in keeping with the "feel" of Plakias and nothing which stands out and offends the eye.
Will report back on the holiday as a whole later next week.
