Guestbook comments from the owner

A group of 4 of us had a wonderful stay at Villa Nefeli for 4 nights over a long weekend.

It is such a beautiful relaxing place which we hope to return to.

The owners were very helfpul in organising the booking and when we arrived when the father owner kindly welcomes us with a little tune on the guitar and having provided some food & drink in the fridge so that we didn't have to head off to the supermarket straight away - a generous & lovely touch!l He also delieved some delicious local cakes on our last day!

The villa itself was very spacious, clean and cosy. The photos are great but it is even nicer when you are there. The pool area and roof terrace area amazing! It could easily sleep 8 people with 4 decent sized bedrooms.

We will certainly be recommending this Villa to friends and family. We loved everything about it and wouldn't change or complain about anything!

The perfect vacation spot in Crete

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples traveling together and we had a delightful time at Villas Kallergi. The house was perfect, the pool was incredibly refreshing when we returned from our daily adventures, and the owner's father, Costas, was the most welcoming and charming host imaginable. Loutra, where the villa is located, is easy driving distance from everywhere we wanted to go and this villa was ideal for a relaxed vacation. I would unconditionally recommend it - and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Traumhaus in einer wunderschönen Lage!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen unvergesslich schönen Urlaub in Loutra. Die Villa Nefeli ist noch schöner, als es die Bilder erahnen lassen. Sie ist liebevoll bis ins kleinste Detail eingerichtet, und alles was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub benötigt ist vorhanden! Besonders die wunderschöne Terrasse mit Pool vergisst man so schnell nicht wieder. Sehr schön angelegt, da gut eingewachsen nicht einsehbar und Abends stimmungsvoll beleuchtet. Der nächste Strand ist in 10 Minuten mit dem Auto erreichbar, man kann sein Auto dort gut parken und das Strandrestaurant des Hotels ist absolut empfehlenswert. Am Besten aber speist man in unmittelbarer Nähe, 2 km ausserhalb von Loutra Richtung Arcadi Kloster! Absolut faire Preise, sehr gute Küche und nicht so touristisch. Auch ist es ratsam die Tips der Vermieter anzunehmen, wir fanden so wunderschöne Orte zum Speisen und Verweilen. Die Gastfreundschaft der Besitzer wurde hier ja schon ausführlich gelobt, und wir können uns dem nur anschliessen: Da wir durch den Streik der Taxifahrer erst um kurz nach 1 Uhr in der Nacht ankamen, hatten wir etwas die Orientierung verloren. Dank Handy und unserem Gastgeber, welcher uns mit dem Motorrad entgegen kam und lotste kamen wir aber wohlbehalten an! Wir wurden mit Essen versorgt, das Frühstück war gesichert! Wir bekamen sogar noch Nachts unsere Hausführung;-) Während unseres 3 wöchigen Urlaubs wurden wir mehrmals bekocht. Der Sohn des Hauses hat uns sogar einen Kuchen gebacken, da sich seine Mutter gerade in dieser Zeit den Arm gebrochen hatte. Also wie gesagt: Eine sehr herzliche Familie. Loutra ist ein kleiner ursprünglicher Ort. Das Haus liegt an einer Art Marktplatz, wo man gut parken kann. Manchmal kommen dorthin auch die Händler und bieten per Lautsprecher ihre Waren an - ein typisches Dorfleben. Wir hatten zu Anfang etwas Pech, da nebenan bis Nachts um 2 bzw 3 Uhr lautstark Party gefeiert wurde. Da der Ort normalerweise sehr ruhig und beschaulich ist, sollte man sich auch wirklich hier nur einmieten, wenn man abseits vom Touristenstrom das ursprüngliche Kreta geniessen möchte. "Ballermann" gibt es in den Küstenorten genug! Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder zumal wir von einem roten Katerchen "adoptiert" worden sind!

Villas Kallergis are set at Loutra village

Villa Athena and the four levels in which the villa is split makes sure you keep your privacy in a relaxing setting. The area is generally very safe and cars rarely pass from the centre of the village if their destination isn't the village square where your villa is.

(on the map we appear as "Villa Kallergi" and are pinned exactly in the middle of the one and only village square of Loutra(Λούτρα).)ΕΝ

The village of Loutra is a medieval village and so the first place for you to explore.The streets are more like village alleys and you can see two groups of tourists that arrive in Loutra every day to see the remnants of an old "Fabrika" ( oil factory) built inside the house of Louis Tikas which is located a few meters away from Villa Kallergi .

There is a free parking space on the village’s central square.

If you walk down the hilly road you drove to get to the village square where the villa is you will find the local bakery where you can buy bread pastries and milk every day as well as refreshments and even beer .

Right next to the bakery there is the bus stop that takes you either to the city of Rethymnon or towards the other hilly villages driving closer to Psiloritis mountain. On that road and only 2minute drive from the villa there is a greek tavern where you can enjoy panoramic views of the bay and the olive groves while tasting casual Cretan cuisine.

One of the places you could visit around Loutra is the Agreco farm a 40.000sq estate. It's an ideal choice for dinner and pretty close to our village .

You can witness unique events organized where seasonal crops are harvested and processed traditionally .Unfortunately the olive oil collection starts in autumn and until January you could be able to witness the process of oil production. At this time of the year you could only visit the facility to buy fresh olive oil of 2014's production or dine there and explore the farm after 7pm .Other choices are Avli restaurant in the old town or as I have already mentioned Loutra's local tavern named Chovoli "Xovoli" where the whole Cretan cuisine is offered while enjoying panoramic views of the bay of Rethymno and the olive groves. An ideal choice for quality food just a 2 minute drive by car .

The village is small quiet and safe . The nearest supermarket is at Pigi village (1 km also) and a 24/7 grocery store at the village after Pigi, named Adele( / Άδελε ).It is on the way to Rethymno on the left side of the road named "Manos".

For larger (big supermarkets, Lidl etc) you need to get to Platanias (4 km), which is also an area with cafes, bars, tavernas by the sea .

The closest beach is called Chrisi Ammos ( Golden Sand (Xrisi Ammos) ) named after the sandy beach that extends from the Pigianos Kampos where our village

is until the center of Rethymno town for 12km . Being one of the longest , this sandy beach offers more than 20 km in total and many spots to choose from either organized or free . Most places have a beach bar or a tavern where you could possibly have something after your swim . However, being in Crete we recommend that you explore a different beach every day may that be close or further to the south wild sea shores of Crete. please advise the weather forecast since beaches to the south of Rethymno sometimes should be avoided. Preveli beach , a beach of the south Rethymno for instance is a natural park protected by the Νatura 2000 law and is a stunning palm forest set inside a gorge with a river running its length and reaching the sea where Preveli Beach is . Preveli Monastery and a number of other monasteries and historical sites will be waiting for you to explore on your drives through the island of Crete dating as early as 3400BC

The distance to the closest beach is between 2-3 km but we consider car or scooter hire essential.

For a beach just about a 10 min ride from your house you can choose from the area of Sfakaki or Stavromenos or Adelianos Kampos. Our neighboring beaches are either of sand or small pebbles, so you have the choice.

Other beaches of south are Damnoni, Schinaria or Ammoudi.

For further information on all beaches you could find :

Another 5-10 minute drive from your villa and you can be either in the historic monastery of Arkadi,

or explore Patsos gorge with its lush green trees and the stream running deep in its heart. At the entrance of the gorge there is also a great place for greek food.

Kids favorite choice on our island could easily be the Thalassokosmos aquarium of Crete
