We did like our stay at the Green Villa. The swimming pool was maybe what we appreciated the most. We were 2 families with total 9 persons. Everything was clean and nice. Pool was cleaned daily and a housekeeper came for about 4 hours every 3rd day. What I missed most were smaller pillows. The beds were fine and excellent air conditioning but too big pillows and it was easier to sleep without them and put clothes under your head instead. The villa is on a hill and not a easy walking distance to beach and shops so a car is important for most people. It is also possible to use bicycles to go to shops and beach. We did hire extra bicycles and used them quite a lot. Two bikes came with the villa.
Lovely Villa in Rethymno
We stayed at Green Mare Villa during the second week of September. Maria greeted us and showed us around the villa. She was very kind and accommodating. If we had any questions or concerns, there was a telephone in the villa where we just needed to dial 777. This was extremely helpful. The owner Ms. Rena is very nice. Kostas Vasilakis from Etouri was extremely helpful answering questions that we had while making the booking. Upon our request, he was able to hire a local chef to come to the villa to prepare a beautiful dinner for our friends and ourselves. There were many local restaurants near by. Our favorite one was "Eleven". Many thanks to Ms Rena and Maria. I also want to thank Maria's mother, who made us a delicious dish!

A great villa offering everything you need.
A great villa for use of 2 families or big group. The company managing it is friendly and approachable organising all aspect of you holiday thinking ahead and offering those added extras. The owner is lovely and welcoming cooking us a taste cretian meal. The bikes would of been well used if not so hot to ride down to the village for fresh bread etc so that’s a great idea to have. Having a cleaner come and freshen the villa every few days is a treat she even tidied our teenagers girls room! A car is definitely needed to explore the area as there is so much to see and so many beautiful beaches to visit.
Lovely villa for 2 families
Great villa had everything we could have wanted. Company that manage it are really approachable and organised ensuring all areas covered plus that little bit more. The owner is friendly and welcoming offering a traditional meal cooked by her for you is an added bonus. Car is definitely needed.

Fantastic villa - fantastic service
We are a party of 7 that has just returned from a 2 week stay at the Green Mare.
The accommodation is fantastic, a real home from home where they have thought of everything from bathrobes to sandwich toasters.
The pool area however is the jewel in the crown with a selection of seating areas whereby you can choose to sit in shade or sun throughout the day.
The owner and all the staff from the cleaning ladies to the pool man provided an excellent and reliable service but went that extra mile by bringing fresh fruit from their own gardens to the owner cooking us a marvellous moussaka.
The letting agents were also great and provided us with brilliant local information and restaurant recommendations.
You would need a car to stay here but can't recommend highly enough.
Green Mare villa is located in a totally private area, on the outskirts of a small village called (Nea) Magnisia. The location of the villa 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 villa 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 Green Mare villa 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.
