Laouteris   2 Bedrooms   |   2 Bathrooms   |   Air Conditioning | WiFi | Taverna 600m | Beaches 3km   |   Sleeps 4

  • Accommodation: Open plan living/dining room (A/C, TV, DVD, WiFi) with doors to terrace. Kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher). Twin bedroom (A/C) with en suite bathroom. Double bedroom (A/C) with en suite bathroom and terrace.
  • Outside: Sun terrace. Shaded dining terrace. Private parking.
  • Private swimming pool (7m x 4m).


Sweeping all the way down to the sea, framed by lush vegetation that includes olive groves, citrus orchards and vineyards, the far reaching views from Laouteris are quite simply a sight to behold. In this wonderfully scenic, gently paced part of the island warming coastal air from north Africa mingles with cooling mountain breezes to create a heady, sub-tropical climate that is perfect for summer relaxation.

Stelios, the property owner, is a celebrated lute player (Laouteris translates as 'lute player' in English), fiercely proud of his Cretan heritage and passionate about creating an authentic local atmosphere both in and around his charming house. External walls of beige granite and sandstone help keep the interior comfortably cool when summer temperatures are at their height while the generous pool and dining terraces are each carefully positioned to maximise those panoramic views.

Inside, so many aspects of a traditional local cottage can be seen including wooden rafters, floors of marble and polished wood, an original feature fireplace and attractively unpretentious Cretan décor. Smart red sofas adorn the living area, the practical kitchen sits next to the dining room (and is just a few steps from the exterior dining terrace) while each bedroom is air conditioned with its own en suite bath/shower room.

Just a ten minute/3km drive from Laouteris is wonderful Triopetra Beach which is, in effect, two beaches separated by a small peninsula facing three majestic rocks rising up from the sea; overlooked by the ancient chapel of Profitis Ilias, Koumado has a few tavernas and sun shades for hire while the larger beach, Chatzi, offers more tavernas and famously picturesque sunsets. The fine sands wander westward for several kilometres offering magnificent views to the Lefki Ori mountains, great for a leisurely stroll or perhaps a scenic drive along the small coastal road which zig zags inland now and then around river valleys and other natural topography. En route, why not stop at sleepy Ligres, home to a couple of very highly regarded tavernas offering delicious local dishes in a delightfully unspoilt environment, or maybe the tiny hamlet of Agia Fotini with a couple of equally appealing tavernas and quiet bays ideal for snorkelling (the South coast of Crete famously offers some of the clearest water in Greece).

Averaging over 2800 hours of sunshine per year, southern Crete is a fascinating region with unique flora, fauna and birdlife (African swallows can be seen almost all year round) and so many wonderful beaches (Frangokastello,Plakias, Preveli and Aghia Gallini to name but a few). All of this, combined with the balmy weather means a visit to this laid back and soothing corner of Greece is sure to surprise and delight.
