plakias... a natural oasis just moments away

Sene Villa is just 3 km from the centre of Plakias on Crete’s lesser-developed southern coast. Until the 1970’s, Plakias was just a tiny fishing village with a small quay but it now offers a range of tavernas, cafes, shops and amenities.

While it has grown in size over the years, it still retains its unique charm that draws many visitors back again, year after year, to its gorgeous beaches & tranquil atmosphere.

Plakias is an idyllic spot for quiet relaxation, both for couples & families with small children.



No holiday in Crete is complete without a visit to these fascinating landmarks in the timeless city of Rethymno:

Fortezza: the striking Venetian fortress built in the 16th century, offering amazing views over Rethymno’s old town & out to sea.

The Archaeological Museum located in the heart of the old town, presenting the proud history of the area from the Neolithic to the Roman period.

The sacred Monastery of Arkadi, one of the most important monuments in Crete and indeed all of Greece. A lasting symbol of the heroic Cretan struggle for independence during the 1866 rebellion



Starting from Souda, with your inner compass guiding your quest for exploration, you can choose to travel by road or by boat to destinations of unsurpassable beauty as well as important historical interest.

Top of the list is the historic Monastery of Preveli and the nearby palm tree lined lake which runs through the spectacular Kourtaliotis Gorge.

Also highly recommended, either independently or as part of an organized tour, is a visit to picture-perfect Loutro with its famous marble caves & secluded coves, to explore & admire the unspoilt natural beauty of the landscape.
