When making your own way by car
coming from Chania airport/port to Faidra Apartments in Mirthios, you will take the Main road with direction to RETHYMNON for about 65 kilometers (if you are coming from Heraklion airport/port with direction to RETHYMNON the distance is about 80 kilometers).
When you are close to Rethymno city you will exit the main road following a large green sign indicating "SPILI" (for those coming from Chania make sure that you will not exit earlier to signs pointing RETHYMNO but you will have to pass first under a bridge and 700 meters after you will exit the main road when you see a sign to SPILI).
After exiting the main road you will continue with direction uphill (south) to Spili for about 17 kilometers until you find a right junction WITH A SIGN to "Plakias" and "Preveli". You will follow the right turn to Plakias and after 500 meters you will pass through the village of "Koxare", and 4 km after you will enter the "Kourtaliotis" gorge.
The next village just 500 meters after the exit of the gorge is "Asomatos". Leaving the village "Asomatos" you will find a junction where you will turn left (follow the sign to "Plakias").
After 2 kilometers you will find the village of "Lefkogia". You will continue for 2,5 more kilometers and you will find a junction to Plakias where you will turn left (there is sign to "Plakias") and after about 200 meters you will turn left again. You will see Faidra Apartments building in the right side of this road after about 100 meters.
