The Alivia villa is beautiful and well appointed. The owner, Despina, went out of her way to be accommodating. For example, she shopped for food for me bringing us some super fresh seafood and great local products such as cheeses, veggies, and fruits. Despina was also available at all times to give us suggestion and ideas on what to do, see and where to eat. Her staff was friendly and efficient. Having breakfast served every morning from 9-11 is a very nice touch. Effy, the resident cook, was always cheerful and a joy to see each morning. I love to cook and greatly appreciated Effy giving me a Cretan cooking lesson. Maria who cleaned our villa daily did a very thorough job and was also very friendly. The location is ideal with close driving distances to all the top beaches and Chania, Some things to note, the sound carries inside the villa meaning you can hear everything that others say and do. Therefore, if you need privacy and are traveling with others, the house will not work. Despina is running a new operation so some things like inexpensive beach towels where not available but they are easily bought at any of the hundreds of markets on the main road. The house is well appointed with a washing machine, cooking tools, and most things you need. Overall, a very enjo experience.

Thank-you for your lovely review and all your positive comments on how you enjoyed your stay with us at Conte Marino Villas. We are grateful that you took the time to review us and letting us know about your experience. We would like to inform you that we have taken into consideration your comments regarding the beach towels and have equipped the villas with towels that may only be used on the beach and thus acted accordingly of your comments. This has been done to provide the best possible guest experience and we thank-you for your suggestion.

Reading your review we would like to point out that as in other villas, houses or hotels, due to the fact that doors and windows are open during the summer months it is logical that sound travels. We would equally like to point out that at Conte Marino we feel we go out of our way to provide the best possible guests satisfaction, one point of which i.e. is in providing a free breakfast of the highest grade served personally to each guest by our chef as you experienced.

Thank-you once again for your review. We sincerely hope to see you again soon and look forward to providing you with a warm Cretan welcome back!

Kind Regards
The Team at Conte Marino Villas

Many thanks for the wonderful stay we had in your villa. The modern, spectacular architecture of the villas combined with the beautiful design and art inside the house made us feel great during our entire vacation. The peaceful surroundings, with orange trees all around, ensured the privacy we were looking for. In addition, the sea and nightlife were happily close by. The hospitality we have experienced during our stay was perfect. In particular, we would like to thank owner Despina. She gave us many tips for activities in the area and exclusive, authentic restaurants, which we had never found without her help.
Best regards, Apostolis Zolotakis

What a great time we had in your villa in Crete! We enjoyed your hospitality, the tranquility, the beautiful surroundings, the sea and the delicious food. The villas, inside and outside, are an ode to modern architecture. We were also deeply impressed by the paintings on the walls, which were in perfect balance with the materials used for building the house: natural stone, marble, combined with tight glass. These villas are highly recommended! As a reborn, we came back to the Netherlands where we had long talks about the wonderful time in Crete.
Thank you so much!

Perhaps the best 2 week stay we have had as a family hands down. We stayed in Villa Alivia this year and the attention to the spaces, decor, furniture, and service of the owners is quite remarkable. Certainly value for money, we cannot keep raving about this place once we got home. We have traveled the world and these villas are perhaps our favorite! We explored Crete extensively whilst staying here and the surrounding area where the villas are located is very quaint and picturesque. We will be coming back! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
