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.

The outside bar proved to be my favourite feature and such fun. We did go in the pool but it was cold at this time of year as expected even though the outside temperature was still quite warm. The upstairs bedroom door handle broke as the door was difficult to close but they were aware of this and didn't charge us. I assume this will be fixed for next visitors. Eva was really helpful throughout the stay and let us stay longer on the day of departure as the villa was to be empty the following week which was greatly appreciated. All mod cons in the kitchen and plenty of space and room in the large fridge.

As a group of friends we hired both Villa Charoupi and Villa Kali Skia for my 40th birthday celebrations for 8 nights.. It was absolutely perfect. The setting is insanely beautiful and we loved the different areas to swim, and to hang out. We had a 9month baby with us and the pool was great for her to bob around in and easy for her Mum and Dad to get her in and out. The wee deck area over the pool was great to sit and have a few drinks in a sun lounger. And then there was the (other) private bay. It was absolutely superb. We spent a LOT of time there. From the perfect early morning wake up swims to antipasto lunches to cocktails all day long made at the 'bar' - it was awesome. We loved the privacy and clarity of the water was what dreams are made of. The two villas were also superb. A few niggles with a few bits and pieces breaking but nothing that couldn't easily be replaced or fixed. They were super comfy and a lot of thought has been given to small details. With the 2 villas we were spoilt - we all met and had group breakfasts down at the lower villa, spent the day by the water, and at night moved up to the top villa for BBQ's (amazing bbq area btw!) and lovely long dinners around the table on the deck with the most amazing views and sunsets. Georgios was amazing to deal with and couldn't heave been more helpful and friendly. He really looked after us and nothing was too much trouble- he was superb!! I wish we could be transported back there now, I'd love to book in every year - it is such a special place. I can't imagine a more perfect holiday and way to celebrate /commiserate the big 4-0. I feel really lucky to have spent time there - I almost don't want anyone else to know about it so we can keep it to ourselves, but obviosuly we want Georgios to get lots of visitors - these places are just so, so special. Can't wait to go back!
