Platanias Vilages

Following the north central road network from Hania to Kissamos for no more than ten (10) kilometers (6,2 miles) and without losing sight of the beautiful coast side that oversees the Cretan Sea, we meet the most organized tourist region of the district of Hania: Platanias.

As most of the villages of the area, the first references of it can be traced back in ancient times, while there is a clear history of it in the Venetian archives.

Placed on the top and the slopes of a steep hill, it extends downwards towards the sea, accompanied by the clear waters of the beautiful river Keritis on its side. The river is well known from the epic poems of Homer by the ancient Greek name of Iardanos.

Pano Platanias (the citadel) is the oldest and richest in history part of the village. Many aspects of its history are still alive and can be seen in its architecture and in the remains from the Turkish occupation (like the remains of the Turkish lookout tower). Built amphitheatrically on the slope, the village offers a unique panoramic view of a serene and welcoming landscape. Moving on through the narrow picturesque streets, we will come upon gardens full of flowers and basil, white-washed walls, the "bendenia", and the warm greetings that come easily to the lips of the local population. All these reassure us that the way of life here is a happy and hospitable one.

Vrises VillageKato Platanias (the lower region of the village) is the modern extension towards the sea. Here are gathered all the amenities and services a modern tourist designation may offer. From food and shopping, to small sea excursions that begin and end at the picturesque, crowded with small fishing boats marine, you will find everything that matters for a beautiful vacation.

Beautiful beaches that have never failed to be nominated with "blue flags" for their organization and cleanliness surround Platanias. They all look upon the little island of Theodorou, which, according to an ancient myth, was a giant sea monster that was petrified for eternity in that very location.

The village possibly employs the very best in quality and the most complete tourist services in the district of Hania. Beyond its network of hotels, restaurants, caf╬╣s, shops and recreation facilities of all kind, as well as jewelry shops, super markets, banks etc. there can also be found health clinics, pharmacies, nurseries, an elementary and a high school that cover the local needs of all the municipality. Transportation and communication with Hania by bus is well scheduled and on the clock. The village's good transportation network, combined with its well-put location (close to Hania but also in the countryside) gives the visitor of Platanias the opportunity to travel fast and easily to most of the worthwhile sights of the district of Hania.

Here you will have the chance to meet and truly understand many of the aspects of Crete itself, its agriculture, its unique beauties, its superb cuisine and flavors, its tradition, its villages and its monuments that attest how this land has put a deep mark on history and civilization.
