Loutro - Any Package Holidays?

We have always dreamt of going to Loutro. Are there any Package/holiday companies that go? Are the hotels Breakfast only, as we would like to sample the individual tavernas and not be oblidged (or have paid for) to eat at the hotel /guest house we would be staying at. We prefer basic accommodation, with merely clean bed and shower etc.

Thank you

Loutro almost entirely consists of 'rooms for rent' places and a couple of ones labelled as hotels. A lot of tavernas as well some of which have rooms for rent.

For the vast majority it's a room only arrangement even if a taverna owns the rooms. You are free to eat anywhere as is the case everywhere in the Greek Islands.

You can probably find a specialist package company that goes there but they are usually pricey. Can't help with that as I just find a room on arrival.

Thank the Mythological Gods that the T.O. avoid this unique place, because their coaches cant come into the village, book online, here for example https://www.facebook.com/madareshotel.loutro

There are no package holidays to Loutro. Freelance Holidays went to the Hotel Porto Loutro for many years, as did Simpson Travel later on, but no company does now.But if you want to go to Loutro, it is easy to get there by yourself: you don't need a package. Easyjet fly to Chania, from where you can take a taxi (or bus, depending on the time of day) to Chora Sfakion and the ferry to Loutro.

There are two hotels (as in hotels proper) the Porto Loutro and the Daskalogiannis. Both have websites you can study and book from. Otherwise, there are many rooms places. If you want to stay at either of the hotels you should book in advance; otherwise you will be able to get a room at one of the many rooms places. (That depends to some extent on the time of year: August is very busy as Loutro is very popular with Greek holiday-makers from Athens and the mainland). Just walk along the front from the ferry, and see what you like the look of. Madares, the Blue House, Maria's, Ilios, To Limani, and Nikolas Rooms are all good, and there are a number of others.

As RH says, wherever you stay, you can eat anywhere you like - and Loutro is famous for its good food.

If you need more help sorting out a trip, please say: I've been travelling to Loutro for 20 years and will be able to help.
