Lefkogia in the mountainous area of southern Crete. The villa (180sqm)
is suitable for 10-12 people, and sits within 10,000sqm groves of
olive and fruit trees, with attractive surrounding gardens of
2,000sqm, and a shady vine covered terrace. The pool is 40sqm in size
with a children’s pool, and further facilities include a BBQ, and a
play area for children.The open plan ground floor has a living room
with a double sofa bed, Satellite TV, Radio/CD player, and leading off
this there is a fully equipped kitchenette and dining area. There are
two ground floor bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with twin
beds, and two bathrooms, one with a corner bath/shower/WC and washing
machine, and one with a shower/WC. On the first floor there are a
further two bedrooms, each with one double bed and a single bed, and a
further two showers/WC. All of the bedrooms open up to either a
balcony or sun terrace with patio furniture, offering a variety of
views over the surrounding countryside, the Kourtaliotis gorge, all
the way to the sea. All bedrooms have air conditioning (extra local
charge), two of them have a TV and three come with a little fridge.
For cooler spells the house is also equipped with central heating
(extra local charge). In the basement of the villa there is an
apartment occupied by the owner, who is away at work during the day.
The nearest beaches are at Ammoudi approximately 2 km away, and
Shoinaria with its diving centre is just 3 km away. Further beaches
can be found at Preveli and Damnoni, each 5 km away, and at Plakias at
approx 6 km distance. The nearest taverna is approx 50 metres away,
and a small selection of little shops and tavernas can be found in the
villages of Assomatos and Lefkogia, with a wider variety of all
tourist amenities in the coastal town of Plakias



The old Cretan fishing village of Plakias with its little harbour,
lies in a particularly beautiful landscape between the blue Libyan Sea
and vast majestic mountains that edge down to one of the loveliest
bays on the south coast. It is about one and a half hour’s drive from
Chania or Heraklion. Many years ago, there were only a few houses, but
today, because of its delightful setting, the village has spread to
cater for the growing numbers of tourists, who have told each other of
this special place that they have found. However, it still retains its
particular Cretan character and has kept its laid back charm. The bay
has a long sand and shingle beach between headlands that gets sandier
the farther you go from the village. Not far from the old harbour are
tiny bays and small coves where you can find quiet spots to sun bathe
and swim. Boats sail daily to a variety of beaches, some of which have
a good selection of water sports and the whole area is ideal for
swimming, and sun bathing in a blissfully uncrowded setting. There is
a variety of amenities for visitors and surrounding mountainous
countryside. For short trips with minimum effort there is Preveli, the
Venetian fortress at Frangokastello and the Minoan site at Phaistos
are all well worth a visit. Further afield to the east you may like to
visit the cliff caves of Matala and the ancient Roman capital of
Gortys, or to the west the picturesque old town of Rethymno and the
atmospheric old Monastery of Arkadi.
