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.

The sea was so much closer than we thought at to wake up to that every morning watching the sunrise while sitting on the balcony was like a dream. The owners are unbelievably friendly and welcoming making our stay that much more comfortable and amazing. We were greeted on arrival by Mr Xanthoudakis who provided us with some raki and wine and with some grapes and food in the fridge, even though we had just taken a rushed detour to a local shop to make sure we had everything! The apartment is a 10 mins drive away from Kissamos where there are plenty of markets and cafés, along with shops. Apartment was cleaned roughly every 3 days by Mrs Xanthoudakis and her group of cleaners who do an absolutely fantastic job and even left us anow amazing homemade berry pie one time! We will definitely have this apartment for our annual getaway holiday for the foreseeable future!

Diesmal zum Sommerausklang Ende September/Anfang Oktober. Wir waren wieder begeistert: das Haus und die ruhige Lage im wunderbaren Westen Kretas, dazu Sonnenschein und noch warmes Meer (24 °), mehr brauchen wir nicht zur Erholung. Das Haus war tadellos, z.T. mit neuen Möbeln es fehlte uns einfach nichts. Dazu der 2 x wöchentliche Reinigungsdienst, sowie die Möglichkeit Essen ins Haus/bzw. auf die Terrasse bestellen zu können. Die Sonnenuntergänge auf der Terrasse und der grandiose Sternenhimmel waren beeindruckend. Wir hatten diesmal Rennräder organisiert, mit denen wir großartige Touren in der Umgebung machen konnten. Obwohl zu dieser Zeit alle Häuser belegt waren, fühlten wir uns ganz alleine in dieser Umgebung, es war immer sehr ruhig. Die Betreuung durch Niko, den Manager funktionierte von Anfang an bestens, e-mails werden sofort beantwortet, Wünsche wenn möglich erfüllt. Uneingeschränkte 5 Sterne!
