Make a holiday rental home or villa in Loutra, Greece your home away from home

Loutra is a traditional Cretan village surrounded by olive groves, just set back from the north coast of the island. A holiday home in Loutra offers guests calm and serenity, with several unspoilt sandy beaches close by, making it perfect for couples on a summer escape. At the same time, Loutra is close to some of the island’s larger resorts, making a villa in Loutra the perfect base for families in Greece.

Things to do in Loutra, Greece

There is no better way to appreciate the fantastic Cretan weather than to simply laze on a sun-lounger and soak up the sun. Most Loutra holiday villas have their own private pool, which is ideal for cooling off when the heat gets too much.

If you don’t want to spend your entire holiday by the pool, there are plenty of sandy beaches all within a 5-minute drive of Loutra. Here you can swim or snorkel and some beaches also have water sports on offer such as jetskis. There are also glass-bottom boat trips operating nearby which let you see the local marine life without getting your feet wet.

The area around Loutra is very picturesque, with some great walking trails running close by the village. Visitors may also wish to explore the small village of Loutra itself, a traditional Cretan village with its own small shop and bakery, producing fresh local treats every day.

Only short drive from Loutra are several historical sites, including the Arkadi Monastery, the Arsani Monastery, Melidoni Cave, and several Venetian sites, any of which make for a great half-day trip.

There is also plenty around Loutra catering to families, with a children’s play centre only a short drive away, as well as activities such as go karts, pitch and putt and crazy golf.

FANTASTIC LUXURY VILLA

5 of 5
We are a family of five adults and we had an amazing time staying at this Villa. It's located in a hilly and quiet location, with fabulous views of the sea in the distance and surrounding hills. The beach is a ten minute drive away. The property has everything you could want away from home, pool, lovely modern very good quality internal furniture, washing machine (with powder provided), dishwasher (with tablets provided), two fabulous outdoor seating areas, air con in all rooms, DVD player, hairdryer, microwave etc. We had cleaners every four days who cleaned to a very high standard. The owners were extremely helpful - they even replaced the satalite dish when we had difficulty in receiving english channels on the TV. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They gave us restaurant recommendations together with sat nav links so we could find them easily. The Greek hospitality was very generous in every restaurant we visited. The Villa is a very short drive from Rythmenol where there is huge range of restaurants, shops and bars. You definately need a car if you stay in this Villa. We would definately return to this wonderful place.

Amazing Holiday

5 of 5
We had an amazing time, totally relaxing and a home from home villa. The views from the villas are stunning, down to the bay of Bali. The view across to the other side of the valley when the sun rises in the morning is also beautiful. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The pool is cleaned everyday and the villas every 3-4 days with fresh bed linen and towels/pool towels. Some days it was hard to tear ourselves away from the villa it was just so nice. Highly recommend a stay here and we will definitely return. Colin&Helen Knaresborough North Yorkshire
