Taverna Akrogiali
Ranked #3 of 8 Loutro B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We returned here for Easter after our first stay 2 years ago and, if anything, enjoyed it even better. Pavlos and his family offer friendly hospitality, simple good value rooms in a stunning quiet car free location. It's a great base for exploring the local coastline (the E4 coastal footpath goes right past the taverna) mountains and gorges and there are great beaches and swimming spots nearby. The food is simple but delicious and much of it their own including milk, yoghurt, cheese and meat from their sheep and goats and honey from Pavlos's bees. Pavlos will collect you in his boat from the ferry at nearby Loutro (a 20 minute walk away over a headland) or from the bus at Anopoly if it's low season and the ferries aren't running or are infrequent. A real gem of a hideaway if you're looking for peace and quiet, fresh air and beautiful surroundings.

The taverna is away from everything, a genuine place! Great location accessible only by foot or boat, simple comfort, with a/c, large bathroon and your own seaview terrace.

We stayed there for a couple of nights as part of a trekking week. We were welcomed by the 2 brothers in Loutro, who took our luggage by boat to their family taverna, whilst we walk for less than an hour to their family business.

Having stayed in some of the best hotels for work and leisure, eaten in Michelin star restaurants, the quality and simplicity of the welcome, of the food cooked by the mother and daughter from the local ingredients produced by their father was just great!

We just got back from a week staying at this lovely taverna - the setting is very quiet (only two hotels on this beach) but it' just a half hour hike over to Loutro which has lots of restaurants. Brilliant service - clean room for 25 euros and then the evening meals and breakfasts are charged separately (reckon on about 12 euros for dinner and 7 for breakfast). Yoghurt and honey, bread and fresh orange juice for breakfast and Pavlos' (the oldest son) mother does a set menu for the evening meal. Day hikes, swimming, renting a canoe in Loutro are the main activities - and lazing around reading a book. Its idyllic!

Pavlos will extend a genuinely warm welcome to this family run taverna in a stunning isolated location. We didnt stay here so can't rate the rooms but we ate most days his mother's excellent home cooking of their own local seasonal produce. Good swimming nearby and a great place to base yourselves for the fantastic coastal and mountain walks nearby. And no road! Blissful.

Having kayaked from Loutro we stopped at this lovely taverna with rooms to enquire about staying later during our holiday. A few days later we were met in Loutro by brothers Kostos and Pavlos in their small boat and taken round the headland to Lykos. The taverna has a beautiful location directly by the sea with a terrace shaded by vines. It is a family run business and guests are made to feel warmly welcomed. The pace of life at Lykos is very slow and tranquil and suits those looking to escape the commercialism of many other parts of Crete.If you are looking for Cretan simplicity then this place will suit you. The 8 clean, basic rooms all have balconies facing the sea. We enjoyed long lazy meals with home produced yoghurt, cheese and honey. The walking and snorkelling in this area are wonderful with many paths, pebbly beaches, caves and coves to explore. Nothing is too much trouble and the family are justifiably very proud of their little slice of heaven.
