Travel

Crete has two international airports, Heraklion, and Chania, both on the North coast & about a 90 minute straight forward drive to our home.

Heraklion is larger with much more regular flights but always both airports to get the best price.
There are scheduled services from various UK airports available; Easy Jet, Jet2, and most charter airlines fly to Crete. During the winter season, you have to travel via Athens.

Good websites to look for flights are Charter Flights (which will check all charter companies), and SkyScanner (which will also search budget airlines).

Onward Travel to Plakias

We recommend hiring a car as it means you can enjoy the area to it’s full potential. We use www.thebestcars.gr if hiring from the airport or Moto auto Plakias if hiring locally. We get discounts with both.

Taxi Transfer – We can arrange taxi transfers for you & the cost each way is 100 euro’s.

Late Arrival?

The local supermarket is normally open until 11pm in high season but if you’re arriving late we can arrange a welcome pack for you. Just tell us what you would like e.g. bottle of wine, tea, coffee, milk etc.
We’ll advise cost and you can pay our keyholder.
