Villa Marina Luxury Private B&B

Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Milatos, Lasithi Prefecture, Crete
Our villa overlooks Milatos village and has spectacular views in every direction. While drifting in the infinity pool, you can see the whole of Milatos bay below you, and the village is close enough that you can look down on people walking in the village lanes. You'll see the fishing boats come and go, and the occasional visiting yacht as it comes into the harbour. In the other direction you can gaze down over the olive groves, or look for birds of prey and vultures soaring over the ravines.

We live in the rear part of the villa, so we are always on hand to attend to any problems. We enjoy welcoming guests to our home, but you'll be left completely to yourselves if that is what you want. We take only a single booking at a time, whether it is for 2, 3, or 4 people, so your party will be the only guests in residence, and you&#...

My second visit to Villa Marina - and it's been another fantastic week. Its setting is up above it all, tranquil with breathtaking views from every corner of this lovely home. In the garden the olive trees and scents of herbs on the breeze appeal...More

Last year's stay at Villa Marina was so fabulous that we booked again. Everything was as before, spotless and well organised, and Andrew and Maureen once again were the perfect hosts: They are genuinely friendly and helpful but otherwise they leave you to do your...More

About the neighborhood
The villa overlooks Old Milatos, which is the original village. It is small and very quiet, populated mainly by older Greeks. It has many charming old stone houses and you can walk around picturesque narrow lanes untroubled by traffic. There is a coffee shop and two tavernas.

Most of the tavernas are to be found at Milatos Beach, which is the newer part, just 1 km down the road on the coast. Here you will find 10 or so tavernas, strung out along the coast road. All have beautiful sea views; a couple are more or less in the sea!! The food is generally reliable, with varied menus, and all the tavernas have fresh fish landed at the local harbour. There are also two more supermarkets, a couple of bars, and two shops selling tourist trinkets. Compared to nearby Malia and Sissi, Milatos...
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Heraklion: 28.0 mi
Ferry: Heraklion: 30.4 mi
A hire car is essential to get the most from the area, so you'll probably be driving from the airport. All the main rental companies have offices at the airport. If you prefer, you could grab a taxi at the airport to bring you to the villa, and we will help you organise a hire car the following day.

The drive from the airport is mostly motorway standard, so you should have no problems. We'll mail you full instructions showing you the route to the villa.

If you do drive, we will be waiting to greet you and settle you in. You will have our telephone number, so if you get lost, we will send out a search party. If it's after dark, we'll meet you off the motorway, and bring you home, as the signposting is fairly random....
