About the neighbourhood
Plaka is a friendly little village set out in a horseshoe shape on the hillside with stunning views over Souda Bay, Almyrida and the azure blue sea of Crete. The village is green with plants and largely preserves its lovely natural environment as it is set on the slopes of Mount Drapanokefala with its own verdant and varied vegetation. It has a lovely main square which is the focal point of the village. Here locals and visitors alike meet up in the bars and restaurants. The permanent inhabitants, about 400, are mostly farmers and the production of olive oil, wine and tsikoudia (raki) is widespread. The local shops tavernas offer very good local wine and food.
How to get there
Getting to the villa is easy. All the budget airlines fly into Chania or Heraklion. Villa Daymer is 35 mins by car from Chania or 1hr 30 mins from Heraklion. You can catch a ferry from Athens or the other neighbouring Greek islands into either Chania or Heraklion.There are several car hire firms that will deliver a hire car to the airports or ports.
