Directions from Heraklion or Chania to Loutra
With a (rental) car
The easiest way to get to our house in Loutra is by car. When you arrive by plane, we recommend the use of a rental car to reach our house in the simplest way and to be able to reach the surroundings.
You can book a rental car on www.voyagerincrete.gr which will then be waiting for you at the airport on the day of arrival. If you arrive with your own car, you will arrive in Crete at the port of Heraklion by ferry from Athens.
When you come by car or indicate that you are going to rent a car, we will send you a detailed route description when confirming the reservation.
Guests without a car can also enjoy their holiday in our house and the surrounding area by making use of the bus or taxi or by renting a scooter to explore the area.
With public transport
From the airport of Heraklion a bus runs every half hour to the large bus station in the city of Heraklion (15 minutes). From here, a bus goes to Rethymnon which, after about an hour’s drive, passes the town of Platanes. You can get off here. You can then take a taxi that will take you to our house in about 15 minutes.
You can also take the bus from Platanes to Loutra or Kyrianna. The bus to Loutra stops in the center of Loutra, which is a 500-meter walk to our house. The bus to Kyrianna stops about 200 meters from our house. The buses to Loutra and Kyrianna run every hour and half hour to and from Rethymnon, so that it is only a maximum of half an hour to wait. So a trip to the cozy old town of Rethymnon can also be made daily by bus.
If you are coming from Chania airport, you can take the bus to the city of Rethymnon. This ride will take approximately one hour and thirty minutes. From here you can take the bus directly to Loutra or Kyrianna. It is also possible to take a taxi directly from both airports to our house. However, the costs for this are considerably higher than the bus. The choice is yours.
If you would like the days of your stay to be a little more flexible when it comes to transport, it is also possible to rent a scooter at the Voyager rental company in Platanes.
Their web address is www.voyagerincrete.gr . This is a very reliable rental company with full insurance for your vehicle.
After many nice holiday years in Crete (Rethymnon) and the desire to own a dream villa on this beautiful island, we found a beautiful piece of land in the year 2009 among the olive trees, on which we were allowed to build a villa. At the end of May 2011 our villa was delivered to full satisfaction. The tranquility and the fantastic view of the sea make it a unique place for us. We also give you the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the hospitable people.
