A stunning setting with the perfect hostess in Despina. First class service is rare these days, yet this team delivers above and beyond. Our Cretan breakfasts and morning chats with Yanis will be a lifelong memory where our 16, 14 and 12 year old children learnt more than they realised. We now find ourselves looking for olives and cheese at breakfast! Our architecturally designed, well planned villa was exceptional. We could have stayed for a month. And nothing but praise for Despina. Her knowledge and passion for Crete is infectious and she will share many a restaurant or activity to do that you won't find in the guidebooks. Attention to detail by Maria and cleanliness like no other are what you will receive. Six stars and a family memory that will be always treasured. Thank you Despina.

Conte Marino villa mandarina was amazing. I came here to meet up with my friends from the USA. The villa accommodated all of us (5)to a very high standard. Nothing was missing and Despina was fabulous. Anything we needed was arranged straight away. The location was perfect and all the techno stuff you could want. Will definitely return

The villa was perfect for our family of 6. We had room to spread out, the villa was lovely, and the location was in a quiet area that was still close to restaurants, etc. My kids say the breakfast was one of their favorite parts of the trip. I'm so glad we had the quiet privacy of the villa instead of staying in a hotel. Despina went beyond my expectations making sure we had everything we needed and answering any questions about the area.

It’s difficult to add anything new to the previous reviews but just to say that we had a really lovely relaxing half term break at Alivia villa with our two teenage sons. A big thank you to Despina who works hard right from the outset to ensure that you are warmly welcomed to the most beautiful villa and then helps with suggestions for local restaurants and places to go. Our maid, Maria, was also super.

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!
