Located directly at the beach on one of the most famously beautiful parts of Crete’s coast - the Gulf of Mirabello - the light and shades of blue changing with the hours of the day. It would be hard to be closer to the sea or in a more relaxing spot. The beach itself is a long and pretty curve of pebbles, with natural shade from tamarind trees. Just across the water lies the deserted island of Spinalonga with its poignant history and atmospheric ruins and from Plaka’s small harbour it is possible to join a boat to explore the island or hire one for pottering up and down the coast. Plaka also has shops and good tavernas serving fish and other Greek specialities. The walking distance between the cottage and the village is less than 5 minutes along the road behind the beach. The village and complete area is a very safe place, far away from any large city. The less than 200 inhabitants that almost all live of fishing or tourism. A watersport is located within the beach area.

Why Ms. S. Klein chose Agios Nikolaos Town
The area of Plaka and Elounda is probably the most desired area in all eastern Crete. Not only because of the cristal clear mostly quiet water of the sheltered bay that makes it ideal for swimming, relaxing or watersports. But also because of the famous fortress island of Spinalonga that lies directly in front of the property, just about half a mile over the bay. The most expensive hotels of all southern Europe are located in the area of Plaka and Elounda : Blue Palace Hotel, Plaka - Elounda Beach Hotel, Elounda - Elounda Mare Hotel Elounda etc. We have done a very good job with constructions of natural stone and wood to give every cottage a lot of privacy by separating the sitting and sunbathing areas close to your cottage, a thing not self understood even in the bungalows of the large hotels.
What makes this Cottage unique
you are uniquely close to the beach with a nice mix of your private gazebo and sunbathing areas just a few feet from the waterline. At night you can enjoy the moonlight on the sea and the soft sound of the little waves on the beach through your open windows. Pleasures that you pay a fortune for in one of the bungalows of the big hotels. And still you are not in the middle of nowhere but in short walking distance to a small fishing village with lots of nice taverns, a small supermarket etc.
