We visited Terramara as part of our multi-stage honeymoon trip to Western Crete and Athens. In total we stayed for three nights and found the rooms to be beautifully situated, well equiped and very clean. The owner's were approachable and friendly and had clearly put a lot of thought into covering all the requirements guests may have - particularly impressive in this respect was the amount of literature they had compiled to aid tourists unfamiliar with the local environs. this extended far beyond the usual local attraction leaflets to annotated and laminated maps that could be borrowed and their own tour guide information. A very nice touch, which we found particularly useful when we drove the coast road to Elefonisis beach and the wonderful mountain village of Elos (a circular route and excursion I would certainly recommend).

A rental car is a must to get the most from the location, as the site is very close to the excellent national road which connnects Kissamos to Chania and eventually on to Iraklion. Although you could probably manage locally with taxis, being able to get further afield is a must in my opinion.

I have no hesitation recommending this destination, both the rooms and western Crete as somewhere to visit!

We really enjoyed our stay (two families, 5 nights) in Terramara. Terramara is far more than the nice and well equipped rooms. It's isolated location on a hill gives you a stunning panoramic view over kilometers of land and sea. Really idyllic! As there are no direct neighbours, you can walk freely whereever you want. It feels like having booked a whole ranch for yourself. The hosts Margaret and Andrew are very interesting people. They can provide you all the necessary travel information like local maps and explain you how things work in Greece. If you are travelling with children: The local dog Harry and the cats proved to be perfect baby sitters;).
Having a rental car or bike is recommended when staying in Terramara.

What a beautiful place!!! A spacious, clean and well equipped apartment and a beautiful terrasse with a stunning view over the hills and the sea. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at Terramara, which is ideal of you are looking for a calm place to relax, close to nature and not too far from some of the most beautiful beaches in West Crete. Margaret and Andrew are lovely persons and they were really friendly and helpful to us, giving us advices and making us feel at home. It's a pity that we didn't have enough time to try the swimming pool and the barbecue... we would have surely appreciated them!

Room Tip: All rooms have the same beautiful view

If you want stunning views, large spotlessly clean rooms, charming hosts and a location in 'real' Crete, then Terramara has to be your Number One choice. Andrew and Margaret have created a spectacular holiday location where you are free to enjoy the best of Crete's coastal scenery or explore the mountains and gorges which are Crete's 'hidden secret'. Andrew and Margaret are experts on everything Western Crete has to offer and, if they don't know, they will find out for you.
The self-catering accommodation has been carefully thought out to allow guests maximum freedom and comfort with the benefits of first class facilities such as the swimming pool and bar for on site relaxation.
Only 45 minutes from Chania Airport and close to all the main sights, Terramara has an unrivalled location. Sit back and enjoy a spectacular sunset, Ouzo in hand and your own barbecue gently sizzling-Terramara, a little piece of paradise.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally well equipped and all have stunning views

Very nice place, wonderful sight to the Mediterranean sea. Located in the mountain north west of crete not så far from Chania. We recommend this place for those who are looking for rest, calmness and fresh air to spend one or two weeks (Specially couples) there.
Very lovely rooms, clean, well furnished, very good service and besides very lovely personal (Andrew & Margrete). Swimming pool, and even place for grill.
