This house lies near Plakias and is a good destination for travellers that enjoy Crete in the summer, but want to see more than just one part of it. The family offers nice clean rooms with heating.
Downstairs is probably the best tavern from the South of Crete where the lady in the kitchen prepares food with only the fresh products from their own farm. Prices are modest and the atmosphere in the summer with the locals is great. Distance to Rethymno is 40 Km and to the small seaside resort of Plakias it is 6 Km.
The area around the house is well known for special bird species, like the grey vulture.. In the spring time from February the landscape on the south coast offers the best scenery for walking trips and our walking team will offer some with guidance. You can visit an Olive Oil press installation and a cheese factory. One of the few pine tree areas on Crete is within walking distance from Iliomanolis
Bus connections are not very frequent, which means that a rental car here would come out handy.
The nearest amenities, such as supermarkets, ATM machine, pharmacy and doctor can be found in the village of Plakias. From here there are regular busses to Rethymnon.
