Sport & Nature
Loutses is the ideal place for nature lovers, with unspoiled trails to the hills and to the CAVES or to the Old Perithia Village.
Loutses is not the resort for nightlife lovers. The only nightlife can be found either in Acharavi or Kassiopi, both 20 minutes away.
Culture and History
There is no history for Loutses on its own, but the nearby Old Perithia village is very historical.
Old Perithia was built in the Byzantine times, around the 14th century. The village grew up when people left their coastal properties seeking the safety of the mountains, away from pirate attacks on the coast. Here they enjoyed the luxury of seeing the coast without being seen themselves and soon the village prospered and 8 churches were built.
