The area is totally quiet offering both sea and mountain views. The beach where you can easily go on foot is only 1 km away while lively areas where you can find a variety of shops, taverns and supermarkets are 1.5 to 2 km away.

It is furnished in a combination of romantic and minimalist touches and can accommodate 6 people in beds and up to 7 people if it is necessary.

Entering the villa on the ground floor there is a spacious open plan area consisting of the living room with fireplace and home cinema with a 46” HDTV and video games, the indoor dining area and a fully equipped kitchen of top quality fixtures and appliances. Also on the same floor there is a bathroom with shower and a washing machine.

The living room has direct access to a furnished balcony where you can find an other dinning table with views to the pool area and the sea.

On the first floor you will find the main bathroom with bath and 3 bedrooms.

There is one bedroom with two single beds which was mostly designed to accommodate children and an other one with double bed. Both bedrooms have access to a furnished balcony where you can relax and enjoy the sea views.

Finally on the other side there is the main double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower and a 42” HDTV.

Outdoors there is a 200 square meters highly fenced area covered by grasses and trees!

More specifically our outdoor facilities include:

- 25 sqm swimming pool with 4 sun-beds.

- Fully equipped charcoal barbecue area with dining table.

- A variety of furnished spots (with sun beds, outdoor sofas and armchairs) for relaxing in the balconies and the gardens around the villa.

- Safe areas for children to play.

- Gated parking space for two cars.

Although there are neighbouring houses nearby, the outdoor area offers privacy because of the high trees which are around the fence.

Fantastic family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Mario. The villa itself is located in a lovely private and secluded area but still quite close to beach, shops, bars and restaurants. We had such a warm welcome from Xenia and Mario (the owners of the villa) - they have children themselves so were very accommodating and understanding to our needs (we have a 4 and 2yo).

We arrived to fresh bread, tea, coffee, milk, olive oil, salt etc. and supplies for our first day's food, which meant we had no need to leave the villa until the following evening and could just relax into our holiday.

The villa came equipped with everything we could possibly need and I can't stress enough the welcome that we received from the owners and their willingness to assist us with anything we needed. Everything was spotlessly clean - We had fresh bed linen and towels every 3 days and the entire villa was immaculately cleaned regularly.

We have stayed in a few villas on holidays with the kids and Villa Mario certainly comes out on top. Thanks to the fantastic welcome, service and hard work of Xenia and Mario it felt like a home away from home and we will definitely be back.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family 2 adults and 2 teenagers have just returned from the Mario Villa in Crete. The villa is stunning, it has outstanding views from the many balconies. The house is very clean and decorated to a very high standard. We found comfort and luxury. You can walk to the shops, beach and restaurants fairly easily. The villa has beautiful well kept garden and a good size pool, which was cleaned during the stay. The owners Mario and Xenia met us on arrival to show us around the villa. They had stocked the fridge with essentials and drinks, the villa has everything you need for a comfortable stay, it is a home from home experience. The owners are kind friendly and are on hand to advice and help. I cannot praise the villa enough it is a five star experience I would recommend it to anyone visiting Crete.

Car: recommended

The villa is located in Pigianos Kampos area, in a new constructed neighbourhood called “Papida” which is 8 km east of Rethymno town and around 1 km away from the beach.

The long 15 km sandy beach of Rethymno lies in front of Pigianos Kampos stretches. In Pigianos Kampos and Adelianos Kampos you will find options for eating, shopping, entertainment and activities such as tennis court and kart tracks, most of them are reachable in around 1 to 2 km distance.

In the beach you find both isolated spots which are not organised and spots which are very well organised with umbrellas, lifeguards, changing rooms, showers, bars, etc. It is very popular for its infrastructure of the water sports and beach sports. The sea is shallow but often wavy, like all open beaches of north Crete. Sea turtles lay their eggs on this vast beach and that is why you might see some marked points with ropes and signs.

Next to Adelianos Kampos and before the town of Rethymno, you will find an other well known touristic area which called Platanias. In this area you can find even more shops, restaurants, beach bars, nightclubs, supermarkets and everything else that you might need!

It is a great location for vacations in Rethymno, close to everything but also a quiet place to relax..!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
