wonderful villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most wonderful week at Villa Thalia. The view is sublime -- the pictures do not do it justice. It is windy, but that can't be helped, this is generally true of the Cretan southern coast. AC in the rooms work great.The location is great to explore the center southern coast. Plenty to see there. Plakias is 10 minutes away. A supermarket is 5 minutes away. Wonderful little beach at Shinaria is 10 minutes away (arrive early or you will have a hard time parking!).

2 hours from xania, an hour from triopetra, 90 minutes from Matala. Too far away to go to elafonissi. The swimming pool is very nice, so his the lounge chair area which is well protected from the sun.

The kitchen could benefit from a microwave oven. The wifi works, but don't expect to stream game of thrones.

All in all, a truly wonderful stay in Southrn crete for two families of four (which left a room to spare--10 people would still be comfortable).

Car: recommended

Villa Thalia is located very close to Lefkogia village, on the south coast, where guests can find all the necessities they need such as a taverna and a supermarket in 400 meters walking distance.

Also Plakias is a sea front village, that can be reached within 8 minutes by car and has a sandy and very well organised beach with sun beds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers, etc. The rocks surrounding the beach are ideal for fishing and snorkelling, as well. The road along the beach is also ideal for walking or cycling. Along the main road of the village there are several supermarkets, bakeries, ATM machines, post office, a doctor’s office, restaurants, tavernas, cafes and beach bars while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars and other shops offer a very wide range of products, including local and traditional goods.

Also the well known beaches of Schinaria, Ammoudaki and Damnoni which are definitely considered as the beauty of the south cost, are close and can be reached within a 7 minutes drive.

Sea waters are warm in July and August, but be prepared to bathe in Saharan-style heat and the ‘meltémi’, the northerly wind which regularly blasts beaches. On the other hand the winds also drive away the mosquitoes and break through that solid wall of summer heat. These breezes are known to locals by individual names, depending on where they come from, how long they stay, and what gifts they bring with them.
