Book Accomodation in Laithi Region - Check Availiability

Lasithi, at the easternmost side of Crete, has few truly touristic spots, such as Elounda and Sissi, while the rest of the prefecture remains off the beaten track even in high season. Your holidays in Lassithi can be cosmopolitan or ascetic, depending on your preferences. A drive around will bring you to traditional villages, secluded beaches, impressive gorges and old monasteries. Agios Nikolaos, Sitia and Ierapetra are also touristically developed, without losing their traditional character. Lassithi is famed for its significant archaeological sites, such as the Minoan palace of Zakros, as well as the one-of-a-kind in Europe palm tree forest at Vai beach. Nine hundred metres above sea level, in the domain of eagles, the Lassithi Plateau rings with the trill of goat bells, is hemmed by the cloudy peaks of the rock-studded Dikti range, and is arrestingly beautiful, offering a glimpse of secluded,rural Crete at its most authentic. In Lassithi, as in most other regions of Crete, there are splendid villas for rent, for the eclectic traveller.
