Paligremnos Studios Plakias

Right on the sandy Plakias Beach in Crete, family-run Paligremnos Studios offer self-catering studios with free Wi-Fi,  air conditioning and a balcony overlooking the Cretan Sea or mountains. There is a traditional restaurant that serves local food in the garden.

All rooms at the Paligremnos are equipped with air conditioning, hairdryer and an iron. Each has a well-equipped kitchenette with a fridge, a coffee maker and a dining area. A private bathroom with shower is included.

Staff at the reception can offer tips on nearby beaches within 3km of Plakias such as Damnoni, Souda and Ammoudi, book day excursions and offer advice on car hire.   The centre of Plakias is a 10-minute walk away and offers restaurants, tavernas, bars and shops. Free private parking is possible on site.

Paligremnos is the name of the cliff face at the far end of the beach, and during the 19th and 20th century, locals extracted ignite from the cliff.   Today, you can still see traces of the industrial rail tracks and tunnels that passed through the natural flora and mountain side to Damnoni.  It is said that at the start of the second World War, locals destroyed the tracks so that the Germans could not exploit the ignite shaft.
