The Crete region
Beautiful Crete and Chania, a heavenly and pure land brimming with natural beauty, history, memory and culture. It is a land whose visitors will experience nature in all its glory and will encounter breathtaking sights.
Endless stretches of seashore bordered in frothy lace, inlets and islands of exotic beauty and sandy beaches tucked away at the foot of forbidding mountains. Impenetrable but yet such majestic gorges, holy caves, blessed rivers and lush, green plateaus thickly covered with olive and citrus trees. It is a self-sufficient land in every way that is rich in endemic and rare flora and fauna.We highly recommend that you take a stroll in the city centre of Hania which is steeped in history; a sightseeing tour of the crossroads and the winding cobbled paths of civilizations with the starting point being the most central point in Hania: the Municipal Market or the Agora.The Venetian old town with its harbour and Lighthouse, with its excellent restaurants and shops will fascinate you!
Loutraki is a pretty small cove with a sandy beach and very clear turqoise sea. There is a small beach taverna and also a lovely restaurant located just above the sea, serving excellent seafood and cretan specialities.
Below this restaurant, a large lawn area along the coast with parasols and sunbeds available for hire, seems to be THE place to be! Small boats and the occasional yacht, will approach the Loutraki cove and these seem to be the only passing traffic! Near Loutraki, Marathi, offers two lovely sandy beaches and several seafront tavernas , well known to the locals!
Further in Akrotiri, the two historic monasteries, unique architectural treasures, can be visited, and further, the cosmopolitan Chania town with its endless choice of restaurants, shops,antiquities, museums and cultural events is only 17 kms from Loutraki.

The Villa near Sternes village was amazing. Me and my family, total of 7 people, stayed there for a week and the hospitality, and actually everything, was awesome - The views from the villa to the sea and the gardens on the area and everything! There also was a great barbeque area just below the villa and it was a great place to throw parties or just small get-togethers. We know we will be getting rental villas from this real estate agent again, thank you so much!
