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.

                                      Amazing Villa, with stunning sunset views!

                                      5 of 5
                                      An amazing Villa, with the most beautiful views of the sunset in an unspoiled village where after one visit at one of the local tavernas, they recognize you. The owner Vassilis was quite available for questions on the property or the area and his recommendations were very adapted to the desires of our family. We hope to be able to return soon. Sfinari is the perfect location to visit some of the most beautiful beaches of Crete (Balos, Elafonisi, and Falassarna were our faves).

                                      Fantastic Vacations

                                      5 of 5
                                      We have the best memories from our weekly holidays in Crete. First of all, the island is a great destination even in September. We enjoyed the crystal clear waters of Elafonisi without the crowds and the locals were more relaxed in comparison to another year when we had chosen August for our journey to this amazing island. However, this year we were super excited for one more reason. Villa Nautilus made our stay in Crete unforgettable. The location was excellent, the pool, the interiors and the privacy, all deserve our five star rating! I must say, that the few times we decided that we were very tired to go out, we enjoyed staying in, playing in the pool with the kids or simply relaxing. The restaurant was nearby and we had easy and quick access to great food (an important factor when you have children). We are very happy to have met the people from Elafonisi Villas and we look forward to be back in a couple of years. I hope that we will be lucky enough to find Villa Nautilus available again. Until then, many thanks to Natasa and Grigoris for their discreet and continuous support whenever we needed help. We fully recommend staying at Villa Nautilus.

                                      Avslappnad solsemester i lyxigt fristående villa

                                      5 of 5
                                      Både i jobbet och privat är jag bortskämd med bra logi när jag reser. För mig är det en väldigt viktig del för att kunna slappna av. Under min vistelse (sommaren 2014) på Villa Ostria fick jag en perfekt mix av allt jag behövde för en veckas semester i lugn miljö. Huset var smaktfullt designat, bra utrustat och hade en utsikt i världsklass. Jag har redan och kommer fortsätta att rekommendera era fantastiska villor till vänner och bekanta. På återseende snart igen! Kristofer Högberg, Sweden
