Alykes Villa

Location: Crete > Rethimnon > Plakias 

Luxury villa next to the beach with 3 bedrooms and huge balcony with panoramic view

Plakias, Rethymnon

Alykes Villa located 1,5 km west from Plakias village in the sandy beach of Souda that is famous for its crystal clear waters. Plakias, is a lovely village in the south coast of Crete, famous for its beautiful beaches and the amazing countriside area.

Initially a fishing jetty and a few houses, Plakias developed in the last few decades into a tourist resort. The first official notice of Plakias was in 1961, when it was mentioned in a census as the permanent home of six fishermen. The history of surrounding mountain villages like Myrthios and Sellia goes back into the 10th century, when the Byzantine Emperor Nikephoros II Phokas (961 AD) built roads and bridges in order to link those villages.

Plakias has a 1300 metre long sandy beach and several other beaches within walking distance (Souda, Damnoni, Ammoudi and Skhinaria). To the east exists the famous Monastery of Preveli, and the amazing Preveli Palm beach.

There are two roads into Plakias through the mountain range which lies to its north, both of which run through gorges - to the north of Plakias, the Kotsifos Gorge, and to the northeast, the Kourtaliotiko Gorge.

The area is quite developed and provides many facilities to the visitors such as organized beaches, super markets, all kind of shops, lovely taverns and restaurants and of course an interesting nightlife.
