Overview

About the property

Studio with terrace, roof terrace, kitchenette - all privacy and comfort

Galini Breeze is a luxurious, small-scale holiday resort, quietly situated on a gently sloping hill with stunning sea views.

Stunning views all around, and yet just 5 to 10 minutes on foot to the beach, shops and restaurants. Moreover, Agia Galini is an authentic and lively fishing village on the south coast of the island of Crete.

The ‘Only Adults’ formula guarantees a quiet stay, while the attractive surroundings, the heated swimming pool and its cosy pool-bar invites you to be active some hours too.

Each of the four detached studios (for 2 persons) and the villa (which houses 6), offers maximum privacy. You will enjoy your shady terrace adjacent to the living/sleeping room and roof terrace above!

In particular we warmly welcome guest who highly appreciate rest and privacy, combined with a certain level of luxury and service. Hence, we adopted the popular Only Adults (21+) formula. Our accommodation is perfectly suited for couples to recover from everyday stress. Here you fully enjoy the Greek hospitality, sun and warmth for some days. It is our pleasure to do anything we can, to make you feel at home.

The weather in Agia Galini is perfect for a holiday between April and early November. The Mediterranean Sea calls and abundant hours of sunshine are guaranteed…

The core of Galini Breeze are the 4 detached studios. From the sunny pool area you overlook the Mesara Gulf and White Mountains. The Villa on top of the complex is comparable to a block of 4 studios (in 2 duplex units), with private swimming pool. On demand we love to arrange drinks in your fridge, yoga lessons, manicure/pedicure, massage, champagne on the roof terrace etc. etc…

Well, Galini Breeze offers everything you need for an unforgettable stay in a lovely area of Crete! Open since April 2017.

About Marc Hinfelaar

After years of dreaming, we decided to develop this project a long time ago.

We are the owners, Marc and Monique Hinfelaar (both born in 1962, The Netherlands). In summer we live and work here in Agia Galini; in winter time we live in Amsterdam. Our 2 grownup kids both are studying and working in The

Greece has always been our favorite holiday destination, and in April 2014 the quest for a suitable plot of land finally ended on this hill near Agia Galini.

This location offered the ideal combination of quietness, loveliness and liveliness we were looking for to create our concept ‘Galini Breeze’.

Marc focused primarily on business planning and marketing, while Monique took up styling and furnishing. As a team we run Galini Breeze on a daily basis now, combined with freelance work (in healthcare-communications and management). Finally, in summertime we coordinate rental our apartment in Amsterdam central too.

We enjoy music, cultural festivals and concerts very much, and we love good food and wine. Of course we won’t forget to take a sound portion of physical challenges like running and mountain biking. Or just to stroll on the beach or along the Amsterdam canals – we love it!

Marc Hinfelaar purchased this studio in 2014

Why Marc Hinfelaar chose Agios Vasileios

This spot, just above Agia Galini is the ultimate location we found after 3 years of research on Crete.

Car: recommended

Galini Breeze is situated just outside the borders of the village of Agia Galini.

Agia Galini was a dormant fishing village once. From the 1960’s the area was favorite among backpackers and hippies; in recent decades more tourists that love some more luxury and convenience found their way to the sunny south coast.

The narrow streets adjacent to the port host small shops and plenty of terraces. Approximately 20 restaurants are located in the village and along the pedestrian promenade. Finally, the village offers some cozy music-cafes and lounge-bars.

Galini Breeze studios are at a 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from the village and its main beaches.

After a day at the beach, hiking in the mountains or sniffing culture and history near Komos Beach, in Galini Breeze you’ll find exactly the rest and privacy you need.

Imagine yourself overlooking an unprecedented wide panorama of Messara Gulf and White Mountains, unique to this gently sloped hill just outside the village.

All in all, Agia Galini is a vibrant village, and in addition Galini Breeze offers a private hide away.

However, you will not find an official dancing here; for this a 30 minutes drive is needed to Plakias or Matala, or – for the diehards – one and a half hour to Hersonissos.
