We had a wonderful family holiday (children aged 6, 3, 8). A very luxurious villa, set in the beautiful Cretan countryside. The villa is very well equiped, the swimming pool in the private garden with Orange tree was perfect. Our children spent most of their time in the pool and picking oranges from the garden. The villa is a short drive from Chania airport and there are lots of amenities nearby. We will definitely be returning for a holiday there again soon.

We (2 adults & 2 Kids (5 months / 2 Years old) spend wonderful 2 Weeks at the villa in October 2017. The place is perfectly hidden in the natural beauties of Kontomari, only 20min by car from Chania. Its an ideal accomondation for a family with kids. The Pool area is great, the infrastruktur of the villa is state of art and the quietness really makes it to a very peaceful place.
I can really recommend the place for visitors who want to explore the island and are looking for a cosy and stylish accomondation in the northwestern part of Crete.

One of our best stay in our life!
We, thats my mother, my to sisters and me - Age from 51 to 90.

I have invited my Family to this special Location, because I wanted to offer them a unforgettable Memory of our holiday, Crete and get-together which we never had before in this constellation.

We met the super nice and polite Owner Couple Despina and Nicos.
They are more than supportive, helpful, funny, honest and straight forward characters, it felt like Family from the first get together. Very warm hearted and trustable People.

Despina is giving you information about Restaurants and hidden places you would not find by yourself.

I guess I called her 15 times during our stay for making reservations and getting direction during driving for special spots. Sorry again for this Despina! ;-)

And I have to say that everything was done and organized within 5 min..
You feel the passion Despina brings to project conte marino Villas.

You get an incredible breakfast which is more brunch than breakfast, served by Efy. One of the most lovely, funny and warm hearted People we have ever met. We had really a blast every morning. Funny stories that brought tears to our eyes, combined with minutes of laughter.
Best cook ever! Native english! Greek specialities I never tried before, amazing taste.

Beautiful atmosphere in the middle of Lemon, Orange and Olive trees.
Breakfast is served at the outdoor kitchen in the middle of the Nature. Mindblowing!

Maria is making an outstanding Service within the house to feel very comfortable.

Spacious Pool and Lounge Area, Living Room and Sleeping rooms. A very luxury place for a special unforgettable vacation.

I traveled around the world many times, privately and as an Entrepreneur, .... and I have to say that Conte Marino Villas are rated within my top 3 list.

A tranquil, very positive energetic place for Families, Couples in Love or Friends who want to have a private luxury place with a perfect service, where you do not have to bend a single finger for anything.

For all future readers of my article. It all sounds very exaggerated, but that's the way it was. "Just excellent".

I am looking forward to our next stay and to see you all again soon.

Thank you very much for this..."just perfect" stay Despina, Nicos, Efy and Maria.

warmest regards/Jassu,

Bernd, Anna, Ingrid & Angelika

Room tip: All rooms are just perfect! Clean, stylish and absolutely quiet. Best sleep ever.

Stayed as a family of 5 during September 2017 in the ‘Orangina’ villa (one of three villas available).
The property is located a few minutes’ walk from the village of Kontomari, a village with significant history. No amenities (restaurants, market, etc) are in the village or within walking distance, so hire car is required. We hired a car to drive to local beaches, as well as all the main attractions in the Chania prefecture (Elafonissi, Falassarna, Balos, Samaria, etc) and chose to take a taxi to Chania town in the evening for dinner (~25e one-way).
The villa itself is stunning, enormous & architectural masterpiece – 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine – the amenities list goes on forever! Lots of light, super clean & amazing landscape views of the mountains, village or sea depending on where you are viewing. The centrepiece is an amazing outdoor area – huge garden with beautiful orange & olive trees, crowned by a wonderful private pool.
We enjoyed incredible daily breakfasts (note no breakfast is available on Sundays), prepared by the wonderful chef Effie – a great mix of local delicacies as well as home grown produce – the best Crete has to offer.
We are very grateful to the owners (Despina & Nikos) for their hospitality (they kindly met us at Chania airport at midnight & due to our late arrival, gratefully organised beautiful refreshments back at the villa) and their passion for their villas and for all things Crete. A stay at Conte Marino is a very unique, luxurious, warm and relaxing experience and highly recommended if you visiting Crete. Thank you to the team and look forward to returning soon.
