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.

Places to visit on holiday in Loutra, Greece

Although Loutra itself is a tranquil village, the larger town of Rethymnon is only a 5-minute drive. Here visitors can walk around the old town, dominated by a medieval fortress, and meander around the traditional fishing port. The town has lots of great waterside cafes in which to try traditional Cretan fare, as well as having several bars and clubs for those looking for some night-time fun.

Winters too stay very mild, with temperatures rarely dipping below 10C and often hitting 18C, even in January, making a Loutra villa the perfect place to escape the cold British climate.

No 8 Panorama Seafront Homes

5 of 5
Our holiday in Apartment No 8 was just what we had hoped for. We were a party of 4 and arrived late at night and let ourselves in. The apartment was immaculate and the provisions we had pre-ordered had been delivered, beers and wine in the fridge, milk coffee, eggs, bacon etc ready for breakfast in the morning. The beds were very comfortable and the aircon efficient. The location was peaceful and ideal for chilling out. The swimming pool and surroundings were well kept and cleaned daily and there was an ample supply of sun beds and umbrellas. The restaurants in Panormo village served a varied selection of fresh food that would appeal to all tastes, the village harbour, and sandy beaches were only a 10-minute walk from the apartments. We explored Rethymno Town and really enjoyed the shopping and night life. We also enjoyed a day trip to the South coast and Preveli Monastery. We would not hesitate to recommend the apartments and we have re booked for 2017.

Sehr empfehlenswerte Villa

5 of 5
Die Villa liegt ca. 10 Minuten Fußweg vom Strand des kleinen Fischerdorfes Panormos entfernt. Der Weg dorthin führt durch eine schmale Strasse bergauf. Die Villa ist durch einen Sichtschutz ausreichend eingefriedet und gegen unliebsame Blicke geschützt. Lediglich das dreistöckige Haus des Vermieters befindet sich etwas höher gelegen auf der anderen Straßenseite, was aber auch überhaupt kein Problem darstellt. Der Vermieter ist sehr zuvorkommend und aufmerksam, die Kommunikation in englischer Sprache problemlos. Die Villa ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Im Oktober hat man leider auf allen vier Terrassen vormittags keine Sonne, auch ist der Pool nicht beheizt ist dann einfach zu kalt. Im Sommer ist dies mit Sicherheit eher willkommen. Panormos hat zwar nur einen kleinen Sandstrand, ist aber dennoch empfehlenswert, weil eben nicht überlaufen. Zudem befindet sich im Ort eine sehr gemütliche Gasse mit einer überschaubaren Anzahl von kleinen Lokalen, die nicht mit leckerem Essen geizen und zudem noch moderate Preise verlangen. Aufgrund der geografischen Lage ein ausgesprochen guter Ort, um Ausflüge in alle Richtungen der Insel zu starten.

Stunning cottage in a tranquil location

5 of 5
Our autumn getaway was reserving a wonderful surprise. We experienced the wonderful little world of Lily’s cottage, a breathe taking, cozy farmhouse in an olive grove with a magnificent view to the sea. It is a little gem in a tranquil location, further enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town but close enough to enjoy it. The cottage even in November is amazing. Maybe you can’t enjoy the nice pool but you enjoy for sure the fireplace instead. Personally I found it more romantic. Lily, the host, is a wonderful person herself. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a lovely holiday. We highly recommend Lily’s cottage even this season. We will back soon
