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.

I booked this villa because of the location and the facilities, especially the pool. It didn't disappoint! We loved being by the pool and listening to the waves breaking on the beach below. The pool itself was excellent for swimming lengths, games and relaxing. We are a family of five with three teenagers and everyone loved the holiday. The location is stunning - on a headland in the middle of nowhere. If you need nightlife, good roads and shops within walking distance, go somewhere else. The roads are quite scary and the last bit is completely unmade, but it's worth it when you get there. There's a path down to the quiet beach and an area where you can get in and snorkel easily. Elafonisi Beach is a 20 minute drive along easy roads compared to most of the roads in the area- go early and leave at lunchtime if you are in high season as half the world turns up in buses from 12 - 2pm. The villa had everything we needed to a high standard, including very welcome air con - it was very hot! Gregory and Natasha were very helpful and sorted out any issues that arose. All in all we had a superb, relaxing holiday and would love to go again.

Weit ab vom Touristentrubel. 3 Tavernen fußläufig erreichbar direkt am Strand.Man kann also wählen wo man den Sonnenuntergang genießen möcht (Taverne oder Haus)....Muß jetzt aufhören sonst packt mich der Frust :-). Jederzeit gerne wieder.

Somebody was available at all hours in case of necessity. This is for everyone that wants a 5 star experience in all natural surroundings, loves peace and quiet, wants to go to sleep with the waves of the sea in their ears. A small piece of the road to this villa is not paved, a normal car can easily drive it but do not hire an extremely low set vehicle. A good local restaurant delivers meals to you on request and it is delicious.
