LOVELY VILLA WITH POOL AND PANORAMIC SEA VIEWS

Plaka Villa Rental Photos and Description

Lovely villa with pool and panoramic sea views

Villa Nostalgia is a modern villa that is perfect for either families or couples who would like a rural setting with incomparable sea views and sunsets, but would also like to be only a few minutes away from the beach, tavernas, shops and other amenities. Located on a hillside just above the village of Plaka, the villa has absolutely stunning panoramic views of Souda Bay, The Akrotiri Peninsula, the Turkish Castle at Aptera, The White Mountains, and acres of olive groves.

The interior of the villa is particularly comfortable but we are sure that you will want to spend most of your time outdoors in order to enjoy the wonderful views. There is a choice of sun or shade on the many outdoor areas, which are fully equipped with tables and chairs, sun-beds and umbrellas, and a built-in BBQ. There are individual balconies off the twin bedrooms, the pool terrace, and the spacious upstairs sun terrace which is perhaps the best place from which to marvel at the the glorious sunsets.

Villa Nostalgia is set just about the adjacent villa (Villa Poppy) but has its own pool and private parking area. The owner is a local lady who has taken great care in furnishing and decorating the villa. There are natural coloured floor tiles throughout the villa, comfortable leather couches in the living room, dark mahogany furniture in all of the bedrooms, and natural wood cupboards and bookshelves in the kitchen.

The warm coloured draperies and textiles in the villa give the house a lovely friendly feeling. All modern comforts are available at Villa Nostalgia, including WIFI internet access (though air-time cards will need to be purchased), satellite TV, DVD and CD players, dishwasher and washing machine, mosquito screens on all the windows, and air conditioning units in all the bedrooms and the living room.

The a/c units also double up as heaters for the cooler nights at the start and end of the season. The water is heated by either solar panel or a back-up immersion heater.

Villa Nostalgia has extra large water storage tanks to ensure that the villa never runs out of water during our long hot summers.

Larger groups or families who like to be near each other but still value their privacy, could also book the adjacent villa, Villa Poppy.

Plaka village square is only 1.1kms from Villa Nostalgia and is an easy 10 minute walk. Plaka was one of the original village sets for the film “Zorba the Greek” and it still has quaint whitewashed houses and narrow streets just off the mulberry tree lined square.

The modern outskirts of the village have expanded recently as have the facilities, which now include 5 tavernas, an excellent Italian restaurant, 3 well stocked mini markets, a hairdressers, and 7 cafes. 3 of these cafes are just a short five minute walk from the villa.

Villa Nostalgia is just 5 minutes by car to the lovely village of Almyrida which is built around a crescent shaped sandy beach and has many shops, tavernas, cafes, a scuba diving officea water sports centre which rents out windsurfers, kayaks, and catamarans, and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding, and guided walking tours or coach excursions.

Plaka

The main square in Plaka is only 1.1km from The Villa Nostalgia and is still very much the focal point of village life. There are lovely shady mulberry trees under which the locals sit to watch the world go by whilst enjoying a delicious meal or even just an ice cold frappe. Plaka was one of the original village sets for the film “Zorba the Greek” and it still has quaint whitewashed houses and narrow streets leading off from the square. The modern outskirts of the village have expanded recently as have the facilities, which now include 5 tavernas, an excellent Italian restaurant, 3 well stocked mini markets, a hairdressers and 7 cafes. The lovely village of Almyrida is only 2km from Villa Nostalgia, and is built around a pretty crescent shaped sandy beach, with a small fishing harbour at the eastern end. The beach is very shallow and safe, which is good news if you have children or are not a strong swimmer. Lining the beach are 7 excellent tavernas, 9 café/bars, 2 bakeries, 1 jewellery shop, 5 mini-markets, 3 gift shops, a butchers shop, a fabulous fruit and vegetable shop with a deli counter, a pharmacy, and an off-licence/liquour store. Also in Almyrida there is a scuba diving office, a water sports centre which rents out kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans, and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding, and guided walking tours and coach excursions. A few minutes by car from the villa, there are a huge variety of archaeological sites and traditional villages with wonderful tavernas. There is also an interesting selection of small craft centres and museums, including glass blowing in Kokkino Horio, lace makers in Gavalohori, and silk makers in Kalamitsi.

For those of you looking for even more activity, the historic town of Chania is only 35 minutes away by car. With its stunning Venetian harbour, quayside bars and restaurants, what better place to relax and watch the world go by. In the narrow streets behind the harbour you will find tavernas, bars, the famous covered market, and many local shops selling handicrafts, textiles, jewellery and hand made ceramics.
