The Crete region
Rock Houses' "Villa Melody" is in the most touristic village of Chania prefecture, Platanias. It is only 3 minutes walking distance from a sandy beach which is unfolded in an extent of many kilometres and in which the visitor enjoys moments of relaxation in isolated beaches, moments of adventure with water sports in the well-organised beaches, or moments of frantic amusement in innumerable beach bars.
Precisely in front of the villa the magnificent port of Platanias is found, a small Marina that entertains fishing boats and tourist boats. From there you might visit, with a small boat that makes daily trips, the islet “Thodorou” precisely opposite Platanias in which the unique kri - kri (Cretan chamois) are protected, you can swim in splendid waters round the islet, and you can also enjoy diving, snorkelling and boat rides in innumerable other points of the gulf.
The village of Platanias, which in combination with its preferential place in the prefecture and the splendid beaches, is classified as one of the most touristic parts of Greece and you can find all services needed. Here you will find banks and ATM machines, post office doctor’s office, drugstores, super markets, commercial shops and shops with touristic types and souvenirs, a lot of playground areas and mini golf, restaurants, cafeterias, bars, clubs, as well as live music scenes.
There is also regular transportation urban and long distance, taxi and a lot of tourist offices and motorbike and car rental offices.
Also from a lot of points of the village, you can take the graphic mobile trains that make near and distant trips in beautiful locations and traditional villages outside the region of Platanias.
Souda which is the commercial harbour of Chania abstains only 30 minutes and the airport of Chania 45 minutes.
In Chania prefecture there are many choices for daily excursions or near walks, like the city of Chania, which abstains hardly 14 km from the villas. There you can walk in splendid small roads of the old city of Chania with background the famous and beautiful Venetian harbour, with the innumerable tourist shops taverns and restaurants, as well as a lot of bars and cafeterias.

Little further is also the archaeological museum of Chania, which has important discoveries of the Minoan years and from the ancient Kydonia. Also a very beautiful and interesting place to visit is the Municipal Market of Chania.
Platanias is also in the middle of a lot of destinations and it is very easy for you to be directed to the beauties of the island from here. The splendid Falassarna with the ancient harbour and the amazing big sandy beach, abstains hardly half an hour from the villa. Just about on the half of the way there, you enter Kasteli with its graphic port and fish taverns, as well as the main harbour of Kasteli which connects Western Crete with the island Kithira and Peloponnesus. From there you can take small boats that make daily excursions to splendid Balo with the magical landscape and Grampoysa with its castle.
In the southern part of the prefecture is Palaiohora, a graphic fish village with a lot of taverns, bars and tourist shops. From there you can take the boat for the island Gaydos, which is the European continent’s outmost southern piece, and Elafonisi with the sandy beaches and gulfs with all the nuances of blue colour in the sea.
By car you can go to the famous area of Sfakia and enjoy the very tasty “sfakianes pites” and other splendid flavours in their taverns. A big municipal parking where you can leave your car exists there and you can take the boat in order to visit Loutro village, a village of unique beauty in which automobiles don’t exist, it has spotless waters and a lot of hotels if you would want to stay for a night.
