Rethymnon - Loutra / West Crete

distance distance distance distance distance

In the medieval village of Loutra, many elements mainly from the Venetian times retain.

There are picturesque lanes, inner courts, arches, a fountain with an Arabic epigraph etc.

Villa Ithaka is slightly above the old village, on a pocket of land apart from the country road to Arkadi.

Some new holiday homes have been built here during recent years, and Villa Ithaka was completed in springtime, 2009.

A fence and high ornamental plants envelop the proverty.

Below the village on the coast there are the hotel suburbs of ▶ Platanias and ▶ Adelianos Campos which provide beaches, watersport facilities, supermarkets, shops and restaurants.

A bus stop is 400 meters away, from there during daytime regular public bus connection to ▶ Rethymnon town.

Iraklion airport is 71 kms away, ▶ Hania airport 74 kms. With respect to the winding character of the motor highway, transfer times from and to the airports must not be underestimated.

A list of airlines and charter companies is shown here: ▶ Flights to Crete

A rental car makes you independent of public buses and tour organizers. We recommend to hire a car straight from the airport which also allows you an individual journey to our place.

The car rental agency Eurocars ( is regarded to be particularly reliable. Their website includes most comprehensive information on insurance, payment and all other important items.
