Loutro, Sfakia-Crete | 06 Aug 2015
Loutro is small picturesque village located on the south-west coast of Crete just a few km from Chora Sfakion and about 75km from Chania. This little settlement feels like a Cycladic island with its whitewashed houses and blue windows. As the ferry approaches, truly unexpected scenery unfolds before the travelers’ eyes. The ragged location prevented the construction of roads and even today accessible by sea only, Loutro retains a friendly and notable laid back atmosphere, protected from the stresses of our modern lives. The crystal clear turquoise waters are – if not always – most of the times calm as the natural bay of Loutro is well protected from the winds. Loutro is ideal for walkers, for people who love nature and seek peaceful vacations. No cars, no modern noises to destruct, and to remind us the troubles of our modern lives. A visit to Loutro feels like a journey back in time, a journey back to you.
