Location The Old Beach House

The Old Beach House is a charming detached house directly set on a pebble beach, 2 km from the traditional village of Livadia on the west coast of Crete. This area is characterized by quiet scattered bays, striking mountains, and pristine villages.

In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done in the traditional way, buy fish in the tiny harbor, or dine out in one of the small traditional taverns. Both fantastic culinary experiences! There is a mini-market in the village Chrisoskalitissa (15-20 minutes’ drive), and larger supermarkets can be found in the village of Kissamos (30 km).

Although the area around Elafonisi is especially known for its golden pink beach with turquoise waters (20 minutes away), there is much more to explore.

Below are our suggestions:

  • The historic old port town of Chania with its Venetian harbor is about an hour away. It is known for its long history and the different civilizations that have left their mark.
  • The holiday home is situated on the edge of the European hiking trail E4 - a route of outstanding natural beauty where you can enjoy the captivating rugged coastline of Crete.
  • Drive to the picturesque north coast and visit the medieval archaeological village of Maroulas and the nearby port town of Rethymno.
  • Take a bike ride in the unspoiled countryside where locals still embrace their ancestral traditions.
  • Make a boat trip in search of the most beautiful beaches of Greece: Balos and Elafonisi. The latter is also an ideal spot for diving and snorkeling. Snorkel sets can be rented through the villa.
  • Participate in daily life and join the locals on an early morning fishing trip.

You fly to Chania airport (Crete), 75 km from the villa.

ligging meteen op het strand, de bijhorende geuren en golven... bijzonder rustig, intiem, bijna desolaat. eenvoudig en elegante inrichting, maar met alle comfort. lieve Filipa die altijd paraat staat. heerlijk ontbijt!

Bijzondere en rustige setting!

Location directly on the beach, the accompanying smells and waves ... very quiet, intimate, almost desolate. Simple and elegant design, but with every comfort. Dear Filipa who is always ready to help you. Delicious breakfast!
