We stayed for a week in September in Alivia Villa (2 adults 3 kids 3-5-7 years old). The villa is amazing, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We were afraid that the kids would have easy access to the pool because the bedrooms have a door that opens directly to the pool area. However, those doors are very heavy and difficult to open even for my 7 year old.
The breakfast was the best part of our day! It is an unique experience to have a personal chef prepare our food just the way we wanted it, at that moment!
Despina is an amazing host, made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. She prepared a surprise party (on her own) to my daughter, with a cake, heart shaped balloons and music! Also brought them ice cream (delicious, by the way) and even helped me when I got sick during our stay.
She was always available for us, and helped a lot!

Human elements are the cornerstone of an authentic experience . I would like to thanks Despina / Maria and many other people who made our stay like dream . Wonderful welcoming from despina with 24 x 7 service , organizing boat trips and sharing the nice places to visit , Despina is really a kind person with sense of hospitality , amazing breakfast made by Maria really true connection . The villa is really amazing, the architecture , the art in the wall with many beautiful paints . The kids enjoyed the nice and quiet pool . Orange trees as well as olives trees around, you can enjoy the pleasant smell and taste every morning and evening . there are many places where you can run around and enjoy the beautiful landscape. You can also enjoy the sunset the evening in the roof Terasse . Indeed we stayed 2 weeks in the villa and we enjoyed our holidays and I really recommend this this place this heaven .

Two years in a row and we still love it.

This time we booked Villa Alivia for 6 nights and it was incredible.

The villa was very spacious for six and extremely clean and very well maintained, exactly as described and published.

Housekeeping was top notch and the villa was always spotless.

Effie is still as smiley as ever and her cooking is yum yum. You can ask this lady for anything and she will make it or bake it....

Despina managed to book me again this year a private boat trip to Balos but unfortunately due to bad sea conditions the trip was cancelled! We ended up driving to Balos

If you are into scuba diving look no further as Despina has the right address for you.

Words will never be good enough to describe this experience and all i can say is thank you Despina and Nikos for letting us into your home...

Looking forward for our 3rd visit

It’s hard to over-estimate the quality of these villas or the hospitality. The accommodation is 5 star plus with beautifully appointed two storey villas with three bedrooms, superb quality furniture, festooned with stunning modern art and all mod cons for self catering if required plus each villa has a gorgeous HEATED private pool. But that is not all. the combination of Despina, the owner’s, care and attention to detail and advice, and Effy’s superb cooking in the communal breakfast area - preparing a classic and varied Cretan breakfast which is more of a brunch, is unique. the place and service is flawless. We had a fantastic week, everything from historic Chania to incredible beaches, is within 20-30 mins drive and there is a local beach and taverna 5 mins down the road. We would recommend these villas to everyone with hesitation. Amazing value for money.

We are totally in Love not only with an amazing Island Crete, but also with incredible villa Olivia, were we stayed for a week in May. Everything was breathtaking! The most amazing feeling is to live surrounded by orange trees, every morning we had fresh orange juice for breakfast! Amazing pool area, where you can just chill and enjoy every moment of your vacation in Crete! Amazing luxury furnished villa, where you have everything you need for your wonderful time! Top quality! But, of course, this villa wouldn't be so charming without its owner Despina. She was so polite, so friendly and she helped us every day, every time we needed! Only with help of Despina we discovered best places, restaurants, tavernas in Crete, she even made the reservations in all restaurants, and we had best tables there! We are totally impressed and we will never forget it!

One day will come back to Crete, Conte Marino Villas with our children!

With warm regards,
Rita & Justinas
