Mirthios and Sellia above Plakias in Crete

Above the very pleasant tourist resort of Plakias in southern Crete are two smaller villages: Mirthios and Sellia. Both are worth a visit, I might even recommend you to stay overnight.

 

Mirthios lies in the mountains above Plakias in Crete.

Mirthios is located just above Plakias. In the village there are several excellent restaurants. Feel free to go there one evening if you are staying in Plakias, you will be astonished by wonderful views of the sea and great food. The Taverna Plateia is probably the best of the restaurants in Mirthios.

Sellia is located on a hill west of Plakias, the ascent is probably the steepest I have ever driven. Sellia is just as beautiful as Mirthios. In the village there are some tavernas and a small privately owned folk museum.
