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

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.

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.

Wonderful stay at this exceptional house

5 of 5
This property is a tradition farmhouse in a small village that has been sympathetically restored and beautifully fitted out in a shabby chic style. It has all amenities, including a lovely pool. It provides ample opportunity for a myriad of different uses (with three bedrooms in the main property and another in an adjoining building - previously a stable - and three different areas for dining). We had an enjoyable and memorable stay here with our adult teens. The owner of the house was lovely. She met us there and later in the week cooked us a wonderful meal. The property is situated close to beaches and other sites of interest. If you want a more authentic experience of a Crecian holiday, of something you will not find by staying in a new build property in a resort, I cannot recommend Dotira highly enough.

Beautiful Villa

5 of 5
We have just spent two wonderful weeks at this beautiful villa and had the perfect holiday. The villa is stunning and the owners are lovely, kind people who make you feel very welcome. They are always on hand but never intrusive. The villa is not overlooked so it is nice and private. We can recommend this villa for couples and for families and for those with reduced mobility. The local village is within walking distance with some good supermarkets and amenities. We were sad to leave and would happily stay there again.
