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

Livadia is a wonderfully simple, peaceful village on the western tip of Crete, Greece. Those who know Livadia will know of its charms, seemingly many, many miles from the nearest tourist shop, English bar or rented sun-lounger. Taking a self catering private villa in Livadia is the perfect solution for anyone wanting to really escape, get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and truly relax on the unspoilt, rugged coastline of Crete, soaking up the authentic atmosphere and lazing on the fine beaches of the Mediterranean.

Things to do on holiday in Livadia, Crete

The beaches of the Livadia coastline are secluded, quiet and astonishingly beautiful. The beaches which adorn the inlets, rocky coves and rock outcrops of the Mediterranean coastline are unforgettable. Lined with fine sand and protected from the elements, you will only be sharing Livadia’s beaches with local fishermen or possibly another family. Whilst swimming and snorkelling thrive in the area (especially from the stunning pink beach of Elafonisi), there are not a huge number of water sports available directly from a Livadia property, purely due to the remoteness of the village.

There are some marvellous walks which take you into the Cretan countryside too. The European E4 walking route passes through the village itself, offering beautiful walking along the coast, through olive plantations, past the astonishing lava formations and onto a range of Cretan villages including Sfnari with its fantastic tavernas and Kissamos which is home to some fantastic stalls selling the finest of local produce. Walking along the back of the Bay of Livadia is a wonderful way to spend the early evening before heading to one of the local bars or tavernas for your evening meal. The lush green vegetation contrasts perfectly with the blue of the sea and the blazing oranges of sunset, producing absolutely unforgettable landscape scenes, ideal for artists, photographers and painters to try to capture.

One of the best ways to explore the region is by hiring a little fishing boat from Livadia Bay and heading along the coastline under your own steam. There are many treasures to be discovered, from the pink sand and coral reefs of Elafonisi to the fine beaches and beautiful old houses and villas of Vamos on the Rethymno Peninsula.

Places to visit on holiday in Livadia, Crete

When you arrive in Crete in transit to your Livadia holiday rental property, you will almost certainly pass through the town of Chania, a wonderful town of two distinct halves. The old town of Chania is world famous for its amazing Venetian Harbour, as well as the enormous wealth of historical attractions from Turkish bath houses to 15th century lighthouses, ancient shipyards to huge Orthodox Cathedrals, well worth exploring from any Livadia accommodation.

Weather in Livadia, Crete

Crete benefits from a wonderfully warm Mediterranean climate. Summer temperatures are around 27°C, with average high peaks reaching around 35°C. During the winter months, you will be very unlucky to experience temperatures of less than 12°C, and even the evenings are warm enough to eat outside in your shirt sleeves.

Travel to Livadia, Crete

A holiday rental villa in Livadia is just 45km from Chania Airport (CHQ). The airport receives scheduled flights from London Gatwick (LGW) and Manchester (MAN) on ThomsonFly throughout the year. In order to reach your Livadia accommodation from the airport, there are both hire car companies and fixed price taxis available from Chania.

A lovely villa perched on the hills over-looking the sea on the west coast of Crete

4 of 5
A lovely villa - clean, tidy and a great position. If we were to suggest any improvements it would be better directions to find the villa as we struggled as did others who visited us. The villa was slightly let down with the shower in the 2nd bedroom - could do with upgrading. A proper shower to the main bedroom would be better than the bath. The kitchen could be of a better quality - the worktop was very basic; we would normally expect a granite / stone worktop in a villa like this. Also, perhaps soft close doors etc to the units. The swimming pool was not heated and took a while to build the courage to brave the cold water! However, overall, the villa was very good and we would recommend to others.

Amazing sea side, sun set, tranquil Villa!

5 of 5
We had a really lovely 5 night stay in the fantastic Pericles Villa. We decided that sea side view and away from it all was top on our agenda and needed three bedrooms to sleep two of us (parents) two kids (4 and 8) and one Grandma! Having not traveled to Crete before we researched that for us West was going to be best with the added bonus of catching the last rays and watching the sun dip into the Mediterranean sea from the veranda. The Villa was very neat, clean, comfy beds, good air con in the bedrooms, loads of space inside and loads and loads of space outside (we never got under each other feet), great pool, a Jacuzzi in our bedroom! and amazing location! It was an easy drive to the three amazing beaches we visited, Falassarna (20mins) Elafonissi (55mins) and Balos (50 mins). We mostly ate out and found that the nearest Taverna on the beach Captain Fidias all of 800 meters away was run by a really lovely family and the freshly caught fish (daily by the sons) cooked on the BBQ was delicious. When we stayed in, the kitchen, BBQ, and multiple dining table options were great and the snacks and a few basics that the very lovely Xristina had left for us on arrival were a delightful treat! We loved it, we could have easily stayed for 10 days and will definitely be going back! Danny and Alexa
