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.

Very spacious and comfortable and beautiful outdoors space. The views are very special and The outside terrace is fantastic for entertaining, eating outside, relaxing, reading, or just chilling out. Everything you need is in the villa, and we found the owners were extremely helpful. Local beaches are sandy, and sea is clear you can walk out for awhile before it gets too deep - great for kids. There are some really good local Taverna's/restaurants in Kissamos, and Platenos (about 10 mins drive away) so car hire is essential. Local bakers and mini market 5 mins away in car. The Villa is located in an unspoilt area of Crete - we would really love to return here again next year. It was a wonderful place to stay in a great location and we would highly recommend it.

It was perfect! We had the sea view apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well sized and had a wonderful sea view. Xristina and her husband were available if needed and often dropped products from their farm. The location of the apartment was ideal and we will definitely be staying here again. This holiday was our 7th year visiting Crete and we found the location and apartment perfect for what we wanted from the holiday. Excellent holiday, excellent apartment, excellent location.
