The Greek-style recently built house located on the outskirts of the quiet mountain village Mariou at about 250 m altitude. The seaside village of Plakias with its lively promenade and harbor is 4 km away. Delicious and affordable food in the many little restaurants, nice taverns, shops, banks, a beautiful sandy beach. Sociability without mass tourism. Car, scooter and bicycle rentals are available here.

From here you can book various excursions, such as a boat trip to the famous palm beach of Preveli.

Within a radius of several kilometers are also several other easily accessible splendid sandy beaches between the beautiful rock formations. The area is perfect for making beautiful walks through the mountains and gorges, olive groves or along the coast.

The ancient city of Rethymnon with its many things is half an hour away by car (also accessible by bus). Less than 100 meters away is a Greek restaurant with delicious food.

what a view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable stay at Villa Anna and found the property to be at least as good if not better than described. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and very well equipped. Outside the view is amazing and the pool is perfect for cooling off. The villa is easy to find on the edge of the village but not far from the beaches and town of Plakias. There is a local housekeeper who is very helpful and calls round to ensure everything is ok. The booking process with Andreas was quick and easy, we would book again for a future visit and would be happy to recommend it to friends.

entspannende Zeit an einem schönen Ort

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten die Möglichkeit zwei Wochen im Ferienhaus zu verbringen und waren sehr zufrieden.

Die Buchung und Abstimmung per EMail funktionierte sehr gut, der Vermieter hat jederzeit prompt und hilfsbereit reagiert.

Bei Ankunft fanden wir ein sehr gut ausgestattetes Haus vor. Für unseren Sohn (1 Jahr) war alles perfekt vorbereitet, es gibt ein Reisebett und einen sehr bequemen Hochstuhl.

Der Service vor Ort war tadellos. Sabine, unsere Ansprechpartnerin, hatte jederzeit ein offenes Ohr und war immer prompt zur Stelle wenn es etwas zu klären gab.

Die Lage des Hauses ist perfekt wenn man etwas abseits vom touristisches Trouble sein möchte und trotzdem kurze Wege zu diesem mag. Der Blick auf Meer und Berge, die Stille und nicht zuletzt die fabelhafte Taverne gleich nebenan haben unseren Urlaub sehr angenehm werden lassen.

Einzig zu beachten ist das es im Haus kein WLAN gibt, was sich aber auch als Vorteil für den Erholungsprozess herausstellen kann.

Abschließend nochmal ein herzliches Dankeschön an Sabine, als auch an den Besitzer nach Holland für den tadellosen Service und die sehr gute Unterkunft!

Wir kommen gern wieder.

quelques regrets....

  • 3 of 5

La maison est confortable et la vue saisissante. La proximité immédiate de la taverne de Mariou est un gros avantage.

cependant quelques détails ont un peu assombri le tableau. une communication avec le propriétaire réduite à sa plus simple expression , pas de wifi , contrairement à ce qui est annoncé il n'y a pas de wifi et le hot spot (payant) ne fonctionne pas.

de plus , après avoir confirmé notre réservation , le propriétaire nous a annoncé des frais de ménage (60 euros pour 5 nuits!!) . On aurait aimé le savoir avant. surtout que le ménage est fait à notre départ et jamais pendant le séjour. un peu cher non ? La personne est passée une ou deux fois pour mettre des produits dans la piscine....

Certes ça ne nous a pas gaché nos vacances mais j'aurai aimé connaitre ces points avant.

Geweldig uitzicht, uitstekend restaurant naast de deur, goede service , mooie stranden op korte afstand, prima uitvalbasis voor tripjes , vriendelijke mensen, kortom een stek waar je geen spijt van krijgt, wel aanbevolen een huurauto met minimaal 1600 cc, ivm de steile helling naar de villa, je kunt .

overigens ook beneden parkeren en de trap nemen.

Séjour inoubliable en Crète

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de très belles vacances dans cette belle maison idéalement située avec une superbe vue sur la mer. C'est un endroit très calme, la villa est bien aménagée,la maison est propre, la piscine est un vrai plus. Les plages environnantes sont sauvages avec une eau limpide. Les paysages sont à couper le souffle. Randonnées (les gorges de samaria), visites culturelles (Réthymnon, Chania, Le palais de phaistos) on été de la partie. On peut vraiment sillonner dans la région et ce, du nord au sud. Je recommande cette location à des familles avec enfants et à des amis.
