3 Bebdroom, 2 bathroom, newly built, seafront villa with private pool
Located on the Southern Crete coast, an untouched area with picturesque scenery, where you will find a small selection of tavernas scattered along the coastline flanked by magnificent sandy beaches. The traditional villages of the area, the long history of the local venetian castle, the serenity and the tranquil atmosphere is the idyllic setting of Mary beach villa Dio.
Mary beach villa Dio is a modern, brand new, beachfront, 3 bedroom villa with private infinity pool, overlooking the unique Libyan sea, literally a few steps away from the sandy isolated beach of Laki. It is very close to 3 taverns, while homemade cooking based on traditional recipes and local fresh products, can be prepared, on demand, by the hospitable owners.
The villa with high modern and luxury standards is all in one level (110 square meters). It consists of a big bright and airy lounge with a comfortable sofa (which can open as an additional bed if required), with TV set, dvd player and WiFi coverage. Next is the modern open plan kitchen with ceramic top, oven, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and all useful utensils.
Three nicely decorated bedrooms, one of them with an en-suite shower/wc and a family bathroom with shower/wc and 2 sinks, completes the comfortable layout of the villa. The master bedroom has a big double bed with views to the sea and direct access to the pool and the veranda. The second has 2 single beds and the third a double bed. All bedrooms have air-condition units.
The sitting room leads onto the pool with a sliding door. The private infinity pool is 27 square meters in size. A covered terrace which is next to the pool is the ideal place to enjoy your lunch or dinner with extensive sea views!
This villa is the perfect choice for a quiet beach focused family holiday or for Honeymooners who wish to enjoy a very romantic and peaceful setting. The privacy and exclusiveness of the setting and it's surroundings is priceless.
For bigger groups, families or parties, the sister villas Mary Beach Ena and Mary Beach Tria are available on the same grounds.
The village of Fragokastello is just 5 km away where more amenities can be found including supermarkets, restaurants, ATM, etc and the traditional small village of Skaloti some 2 km away where a mini market can be found.
The Fragokastello castle itself is a living history and a window to a vivid and revolutionary past! The remains of the castle is not very different from the way it looked when it was first built in 1371. Above the main entrance there is a sculptured slate with the Lion of Saint Mark and two Venetian feudal coat of arms.
The view to the impressive White Mountains is breathtaking and inviting for daily excursions. The European Hiking Footpath (E4) passes through Fragokastello. It passes through the beautiful gorge of Imbros and crosses the gorge of Kalikratis, which both are easy to visit and hike.
The seawater of the area is crystal clear, shallow and warm and it is a marvellous combination with the sand dunes that are formed and an opportunity for many hours of play and leisure.
According to the local legend, every year, on the anniversary of the battle of Fragokastello (4-6 June), at dawn, you can see a long procession of visions. Figures with their weapons, walkers and riders, marching from the church of Saint Charalambos towards the fort. The phenomenon is observed when the sea is calm and there is moisture in the atmosphere and it lasts about 10 minutes. The figures reach the sea and disappear into it, with the first rays of the sun. They are called Drosoulites.

Great villa in quiet spot of Crete.
Lovely modern villa with nice pool at quiet little beach. 2 small tavernas within walking distance but need a car to access other areas. Not far from Imbros gorge. Could have done with a bit more kitchen equipment for self catering.
Beautiful morning views
We had our children with us two girls (19 & 16) and our son (13) and because of the fairly isolated location a week was probably enough for them, however my wife and i would happily stay for a month.
The villa is very clean, and in good working order; we were unfortunate to arrive after a problem with the waste pipes and for the first 4 days had the smell of human waste around the pool and patio area, (the agent who greeted us informed us of this immediately on arrival and finalised the repair on the fourth day). the pool was cleaned regularly.
The three tavernas are all in walking distance and are the hosts very welcoming with good home cooked food and a very friendly disposition. The nearest supermarket is approx 4.5km away and personally would advise on car hire when staying at Mary Villas but if you just want to CHILL this location is PERFECT.
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful and peaceful Place.
There is nothing more to say.
Thanks for beeing such a good host.
Schönes Haus in toller Lage direkt am Meer
Wir erlebten sehr spät im Jahr, Ende Oktober, noch wunderschöne Sonnentage in dem neu gebauten Bungalow 50 m vom Meer entfernt. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet. Etwas mehr Geschirr, Gläser und Besteck wären für 6 Personen manchmal nützlich gewesen. Aber mit Hilfe der Spülmaschine war das kein echtes Problem. Den angekündigten Maid Service gab es nicht - wohl wegen des baldigen Saisonendes. Der Pool wurde von einem ebenfalls auf dem Grundstück wohnenden Mann sehr gut gepflegt. Diesen konnte man auch wegen anderer Kleinigkeiten ansprechen. In der Taverne 100 m neben dem Haus gab es leckeres griechisches Essen mit sehr freundlichem Service. Insgesamt genossen wir alle unseren Aufenthalt sehr, auch die Kinder. Für Menschen, die es laut und lebhaft wollen, nicht zu empfehlen, für alle, die Natur, Meer und Ruhe schön finden, aber um so mehr.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. Your remarks are highly appreciated and they help us improve even more. We take your opinion under serious consideration because we strive to satisfy our guests' needs and inquiries. We would love to be able to welcome you again in Crete and offer you another great stay!

Keep it a secret!
I am so pleased with the villa that I would like to keep it to my self......
On the south coast of Crete, on a magnificent white sandy beach, stands one of the most beautiful Venetian fortresses of the island, Frangokastello.
It is located approximately 170 km from Heraklion, 70 km from Rethymnon, 80 km from Chania, 12 km from Chora Sfakion en route to Plakias.
Frangokastello was named after the castle that the Venetians built right on the beach in 1371, in order to protect themselves from pirates and from the constant revolts of the locals. The Venetians called it Castle Franco.
Today, Frangokastello is a small, but developing, community, with nice beaches covered in sand dunes, and limited, but increasing, tourist facilities.
Frangokastello, together with the neighboring villages of Kapsodasos, Kalikratis and Patsianos, belong to the municipality of Sfakia.
