Additional Location Information

PLAKA
Plaka is a lovely Cretan village within walking distance of HARMONIA and it contains a number of excellent Tavernas, some that are open all year round. Other interests are the nearby city of Chania (pronounced Hania) that supports a large covered market and an interesting Venetian military complex. There is so much to do for the adventurous in Crete; the Minoan ruins at Knossos dating back 5,000 years are a must if you are interested in pre history and there are many other interesting sites and numerous walks that offer healthy exercise. The beaches and a secluded cove for sea swimming are only minutes away by car.
Banks: Bring Euro cash if possible. The hosts have a secure area available for keeping cash. ATM's are plentiful, but expensive if you are paying via a sterling account. Travellers cheques are accepted by some, but not all. Credit and Debit cards are accepted by most, but tavernas and petrol stations usually prefer cash.
Tavernas: Usually provide excellent food and wine at very reasonable prices. The portions tend to be large so take a doggy bag. A meal for 2 with wine should cost around €22.00 (€11.00 each or about £9.36). Most tavernas serve deserts and raki free after a meal. (Raki is a spirit derived from the grape stalks and skins after the wine has been extracted. It is strong and is similar in taste to a schnapps).
Plaka: is 5 minutes walk from the house, but getting back is strenuous because of the hill. The hosts can arrange to pick you up if the hill is too much for you. The nearest sandy beach is Almyrida, about 15 minutes walk from the house. There is a cove nearby which is perfect for swimming and that takes about 10 minutes in a car. Georgioupolis is about 25 minutes by car and has a beach 7 kilometres long - great for walking and swimming.
To Do: Walking, trekking organised or not as required. Horse Riding, water sports including Hobie Cats, Paddleos, surf boarding, snorkelling and diving is available locally, but not all in the off season. There is a Go-Kart track near Chania, also a bowling alley. Bycycles are easily rented as are cars. There are evening quizzes, bridge classes and a local spa. There is also a local tennis court and 2 golf courses in Crete.
