Make a holiday rental home or villa in Lassithi, Crete your home away from home

The Prefecture of Lassithi lies in the east of Crete, offering gorgeous beaches, and a huge, lush plateau, covered in archaeological treasures and beautiful places to walk. This quieter region of Crete is the perfect place to take a top class beach holiday, yet still be able to immerse yourself in the traditional way of life, and with a little peace. The larger resorts can be loud during the peak season, but many of our holiday rental villas in Lassithi are in remote areas.

Things to do on holiday in Lassithi, Crete, Greece

Lassithi has been awarded no less than 32 European Blue Flags for the cleanliness of its many beaches. This means that whether you go in search of a blissfully secluded cove beach or a large, sweeping beach adorned with beach bars and endless facilities, you are almost certain to find a clean, safe beach. The larger, more tourist focused beaches are almost certain to offer water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and diving opportunities, as well as the change to go deep sea fishing off the shores of the island. There are also a variety of scuba diving centres scattered across this side of Crete.

The inland regions of Lassithi are quite remarkable. Towering sandstone cliffs are scoured with deep valleys and deep, blue lakes, making it the ideal location for hang gliding, hiking, climbing, caving, mountain biking, fishing and walking.

After a long day of sport or relaxing on the beaches, there is no better way to finish the day than enjoying the nightlife of the regions capital, Agios Nikolaos. There are some excellent little bars and a number of great clubs, but you can also find a fantastic night out in the beach resorts of Elounda, Makrygialos and Sitia.

Like in much of Crete, the history of Lassithi lasts back into the pre-historic times, meaning that there are a huge wealth of historical monuments and archaeological treasures to investigate from your self catering Lassithi holiday rental, including Ottoman mosques, Venetian castles and the Roman mosaics at Zakros.

Places to holiday in Lassithi, Crete, Greece

The island of Mochlos is only a few hundred metres off the coast of Lassithi, but is a treasure trove of Mionian ruins, with many fascinating sites having been excavated, producing the largest collection of gold jewellery ever found. However, Mochlos is not only an archaeologists dream, but is also a perfect place to spend a lazy day, dreaming by the water’s edge.

Elounda is a great tourist resort on the coastline of Lassithi, boasting some stunning shaded beaches and crystal still waters. Taking Lassithi holiday accommodation in Elounda gives you a magical mix of Greek charm, modern facilities and a great number of activities on offer. After a day on the beach or in the water snorkelling, the lively nightlife of Elounda is particularly good fun.

Makrygialos is a lovely beach resort which also holds one of the most impressive single archaeological discoveries in Crete. A full Minoan country house can still clearly be seen, but in all honesty, it is the combination of stunning beaches and a quiet atmosphere which means the Lassithi villas in Makrygialos have been so popular for so long.

Average temperatures in Lassithi range from between an average of 14°C in winter and 28°C in summer. Daily peaks are higher than the average, meaning that on summer days, villa in Lassithi with pools or those close to the beach are in very high demand.

Excellent. Recommend a powerful and not too large hire car for the steep hills and odd narrow road

romantisches Appartement, atemberaubende Umgebung

5 of 5
Die gepflegte und im traditionell kretischen Stil erbaute Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und war als Ferienwohnung für uns zwei fast schon zu geräumig. Das Appartement verfügt über ein romantisches Schlafzimmer, gemütliches Wohnzimmer, eine Küche, einen Essbereich und ein Badezimmer. Durch die Fenster oder von der Terrasse genießt man die atemberaubende Bergwelt und den grandiosen Blick auf das Lybische Meer. Trotz der zentralen Lage, in diesem kleinen Dorf, fanden wir unerwarteten Komfort und absolute Ruhe, die nur am Sonntagmorgen kurz durch die Kirchenglocken durchbrochen wurde. Unsere liebevollen Gastgeber, versuchten permanent uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abzulesen. Von Giannis erhielten wir nicht nur unbezahlbare Ausflugsempfehlungen und wertvolle Tipps, er besorgte auch gleich Tickets für die Überfahrt zu der quasi gegenüber liegenden Insel Chrisi, sodass wir uns nicht persönlich darum kümmern mussten. Unweit der Appartementanlage befindet sich die einzige Taverne des Dorfes, in der wir authentisch und immer bestens gegessen haben. Besonders empfehlenswert ist hier auch der selbstgebrannte Raki/Tsikoudia. Der kleine Tante-Emma-Laden, kaum 100m entfernt, konnte allerdings nicht allen unseren Bedürfnissen gerecht werden. Größere Supermärkte gibt es beispielsweise auf dem Weg nach Ierapetra. Der nächste Lidl-Markt ist ca. 15km entfernt. Das kleine Bergdorf liegt als Ausgangspunkt wunderbar zentral für schöne Ausflüge, angefangen bei Ierapetra, Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, Vai und viele andere süd-östliche Ziele. Als Wanderer empfehlen wir insbesondere die kleine Kapelle auf dem Hausberg (toller Ausblick), die grandiose Sarakinas-Schlucht und den kleinen Ort Myrtos nebst seinem wunderschönen Strand. Familien mit Kindern sollten vielleicht auch der kleinen Eselfarm einen Besuch abstatten, in der insbesondere „Esel-Rentner“ ihren Lebensabend genießen dürfen. Über ein Mitbringsel in Form von Möhren oder Äpfeln freuen sich die lieben Vierbeiner sehr. ;-) Ich glaube, diese kann man sogar für einen Ausflug mieten (haben wir nicht gemacht). Einfach mal nach „Walk With Donkeys“ googeln. Die Kritik an den Kirchenglocken und dem winzigen Supermarkt ist wirklich Stöhnen auf hohem Niveau. Wer das "echte" Kreta entdecken will und trotzdem nicht auf Komfort verzichten mag, ist hier genau richtig. Unsere Erwartungen wurden jedenfalls deutlich übertroffen.
