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.

Weather in Lassithi, Crete, Greece

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.

A Lovely little apartment!

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at The Studio, Lagada Bay. The apartment had everything we needed for a short stay. It is bright, clean and nicely fitted out with modern Ikea furnishings and with a very good air conditioning system for the hot Summer months in Crete which you will need! Cosy enough to enjoy a night in but equally so many places to explore and eat that, the apartment was all we needed as a base and with plenty of good restaurants, and site seeing near by. We loved it, the only minor issue was that we felt the double bed needed a couple of slats either replacing/fixing underneath as it sagged a little on sleeping, but this was the only fault. The rest was bliss!

Exceeded expectations

5 of 5
We arrived at the villa and were greeted by the owner, Despina, who was very welcoming. Having showed us around the villa and pool, we were then pleasantly surprised to be presented with a delicious home cooked Cretan chicken meal, cooked for us by Joanna along with a bottle of local wine to complete our meal. A wonderful beginning to our holiday. The villa was very comfortable and supplied all our needs. Joanna visited us after a couple of days and gave us some traditional Cretan cakes and wanted to check that we were happy and had all we needed. Both ladies spoke excellent English and recommended some wonderful places to visit, tavernas and beaches. Mum came with us and had the guesthouse suite downstairs, with her own front door, perfect! The pool was lovely, little bit cold as we visited end of October, but we did swim practically every day and nearby Valissimos beach was beautiful, shallow warm crystal clear water and golden sands. We had a car, arranged for us by the villa owners. We were greeted at the airport and followed the young man who greeted us from the airport to the villa door! A car was necessary for the location and would recommend bringing own dvds as there are none in the villa (blu ray player) and english speaking tv was limited to news channels. The villa was visited by maids and a pool attendant every day. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, the weather was wonderful, one rainy day in 14, and the first rain in Crete for 6 months! Defintely recommend, wish we could have stayed longer!
