Description

Blue Mare

Blue Mare villa has better sea views than Green Mare which has better mountain views, otherwise both villas are exactly the same.

Both houses are designed to have wheelchair access on the ground floor and outdoor areas but villa “Green Mare” also has a bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor which meet all the standards for wheelchair access.

You can book both villas as one with a discount price, taking the opportunity of more privacy between your own group. The outdoor areas can be connected with a secret door which can be opened in case you book both villas as one.

Although both villas are semi-detached, we took good care of your privacy. The only part that you have to share with the other house is the parking area, otherwise the villas are designed to offer full privacy between them.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits of Mare Villas according my opinion are:

- Stone made brand new villas with all the furniture and electric devices are high quality.

- Constructed in a way to offer privacy between the two villas.

- The location as the villas are in a quiet natural environment but only 2 km away from the beach and living areas where you can find everything. Also it is a great base if you want to explore Crete.

- The layout of the outdoor area and the design of the pool, the sitting areas and the barbecue are great for relaxing!

- The buildings are stone made which means that the houses keep the same temperature in winter or summer and it will be always cool.

- All the bedrooms have private balcony with sea or mountain view.

- Safe children playground in the backyard.

family week in Greece

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with 8 people 8 days in the Blue Mare

I was very impressed by the help of Sofia, our contactperson.

Every question was answered in a few moments, she was a good help

The owner of the house was waiting for us, and showed us the whole house. The house was very clean, and the swimming-pool and garden were very nice. Everything we needed in the house was there, we didn't find anything we missed

During the week came the cleaning-lady two times to clean and we felt a very luxery feeling of this. The owner offered us to cook for us and we agreed, it was very nice and tastfull.

We all had a very good feeling of the house and all the services and we woulf really recommend this to every one we know.

we have 2 recommendations :

1. We arrived in the evening, and it was soo dark that without a navigationsystem we never would found the house.

We were thankfull that the hirecompany of the cars lent us the navigationsystem

2. We found that around the swimming-pool should be having a gate or something to protect little children of falling int the water

Blue Mare is a dream in the beautiful Crete. TOP!!

  • 5 of 5

Rena's Blue Mare Villa is a very beautiful house in Creta. We were 6 adults and 2 children, the Villa is very comfortable and has all the amenities you might need during your stay in the house.

Moreover both Rena and Kostas (our contact in the agency) are nice people and they can help you with everything you need. The villa is in a small village near Rethymno, a beautiful city and harbor. The villa is also in a great location because it is located mid-island and allows with a car to visit daily both the east and the west of Crete.

If you want to travel to Creta, Mare Villa and Kostas's Agency are the best solution.

Mooi gelegen huis op prachtige rustige locatie

  • 5 of 5

Grote moderne woning die is voorzien van alle gemakken.

Elke verdieping een eigen badkamer.

Alle slaapkamers voorzien van badjassen/handdoeken en badlakens

2x gedurende de week hele huis schoongemaakt, wat een luxe

Contactpersoon makkelijk te bereiken en erg behulpzaam

Je moet wel een auto hebben want de winkel en de zee zijn toch wel op zo'n 1,5 km afstand

Woning is voor iedereen aan te bevelen

Mocht je in de avond arriveren, zorg wel voor een goede navigatie want Kreta in de avond is erg donker en wegen zijn slecht verlicht !!!

The perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in lovely Villa Blue Mare for a week and had a wonderful time! We were 6 adults and 2 children (8 months and 3 years) and found the house just perfect. The villa contained everything we needed and more, and the outdoor area was breathtaking. The kids loved the children's pool, and we could enjoy a nice barbecue by the poolside after they went to bed :) Rena and Sophia were super friendly and really helpful. They even drove us to the supermarked the day we arrived so we could buy necessary groceries. On our last day Rena made us homemade moussaka, and it was amazing!

The villa was a 20min walk away from the nearest beach, but if you are traveling with small children I would recommend to hire a car. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Long sandy beach of Rethymno
Car: recommended

The villas are located in a totally private area, on the outskirts of a small village called (Nea) Magnisia. The location of the villas is perfect as it is only 2 km away from the beach and living areas such as Sfakaki and Stavromenos where you can find big supermarkets, bakeries and taverns.

Also in a distance of 5 minutes drive away from the villas you will find the beach front areas of Adelianos Kampos and Platanias which are two very well known tourist areas with many hotels, shops, big markets, bars, night clubs, restaurants and organised beach bars!

Furthermore Rethymno city is only 12 km away.

Having our villas as a base you can also explore central Crete, not only the beaches in the North coast but also the unique and historical sightseeings of the island.

The whole surrounding area is in a quiet natural environment and even though the living areas are close, you can feel “away from it all”.

Staying in our villa will give you not only the advantage of relaxing in a quiet private area but also be close to everything.

The closest beaches to the villa that we suggest you visit are:

The long sandy organised beach of Rethymno with its numerous water sports only 2 km away. The sandy beach of Episkopi which is 27 km away on your way to Chania. On the same direction Georgiopoulis is 34 km away with its shallow waters which are ideal for families with small children and the sandy beach of Panormo village on your way to Heraklion is 12 km away or Bali beach is 23 km away. 

On the South coast of the island you can also discover some of Crete’s most amazing natural beaches such as “Schinaria”, “Damnoni”, “Triopetra”, “Agios Pavlos” and "Preveli". The distance to the South coast from the villa is about 1 hour drive by car and all the above beaches are located near to Plakias village where you can find shops and many taverns.

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").
