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.

Beautiful views, surrounded by stunning mountains, a beautifully kept garden surrounds the property with plenty of sitting / eating / sunbathing space. The pool is not overlooked at all. Inside, the villa is immaculately kept, with plenty space for sitting indoors. Bali itself has lots of restaurants to choose from and mini supermarkets for essentials. A day trip to Chania and Rethymnon are well worth doing and also a drive inland for more mountainous scenery. We love this bolt hole and would not hesitate to return.

It was perfect for us as we were with my one year old son so he could explore without us worrying about the stairs. The pool and outside area was great and we used the BBQ quite a few times. Helena was absolutely fantastic and very welcoming and at the end of the phone if we needed anything. Would reccomend this villa to anyone but I would say it is especially family friendly.
