Hotel Porto Loutro is special, in the
words of the hotel's guests who stay for the first time, only to
return when they discover that any year is incomplete without a visit.
Loutro is quiet. It has no cars or mopeds -
just conversation and the occasional boat bringing fresh food to the
waterfront tavernas and cafes.
The hotel, created with quality, comfort and simplicity, is made up of
two buildings. Hotel Porto Loutro I is in the middle of the beach -
your room is five steps from the water - for those who like to
open the door, fling their towel on a lounge chair and read, swim, chat
or sunbathe. Hotel Porto Loutro ll stands overlooking Loutro and its
sparkling bay, surrounded by dramatic and soul-calming mountains, hardly
a one minute stroll to dive into the clear water below!
have a cafe/bar where breakfast is served to warm the day with a
splendid view and a feeling of well-being - as noted by so many
There is no road to the village.
So you arrive by ferry. The bay dramatically unfolds in front of you as
you sail in and step onto the beach just in front of the hotel. The same
beach which you will after a day or so, think of as your own.
"There is nowhere else like it in Crete and having traveled in
search of wonderful and heart-warming places, I have not found any equal
to Loutro....the view from the hotel terrace bar is one of the best
in the world, of this I'm sure." *
