The Crete region
Rock Houses' "Villa Rhapsody" is in the most touristic village of Chania prefecture, Platanias. It is only 3 minutes walking distance away 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.
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.
Visit the Venetian fortress of Firka, in which the naval museum of Chania is accommodated. Precisely opposite dominates the famous lighthouse in the entry of the old harbour. 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.

"A peaceful haven"
Villa Rhapsody is very tastefully furnished, with lots of extras which you would expect in a good quality hotel. The second bedroom is a mezzanine so it is more suited to a family of four than 2 sets of adults. We travelled with out 2 daughters in their early 20's and they were very comfortable. It was very clean and the pool was a pleasant respite from the heat. We spent a lot of time outdoors but the lounge area was very pleasant. Villa Rhapsody is very near to the hustle and bustle of Platanias but once through the gates you wouldn't know. Can recommend Cosmos restaurant which you can see on the hill from the pool. Take a taxi as it is a long walk! The owner Yioulia was very pleasant and spoke excellent English. She was there if we needed her but not intrusive. The owners run a bar near the premises but we never heard it even though it was open until 5.00a.m. It opened at 10.00 but we never made it there! Lovely villa.
We want to have guests just like this family! They were great, very respective of the villa, very polite and wonderful family. We wish to see them again in our of our villas in the future.
