Where to start, we were a group of 8 people and stayed 2 weeks. We arrived at midnight and were met my the wonderful villa owner Mrs. Rena. We had received an email from our ever efficient rental company Etouri Rentals a few days previously asking if we needed any essentials and were delighted when they were there for us. Mrs. Rena also had some homemade greek pies ready for consumption whuch were devoured, along with two bottles of olive oil. I have worked in travel for 13 years in a previous life chapter and for me this villa was beyond what I expected. It had everything we needed to enjoy a hassel free holiday. We did hire a car which we rented from Arkadi Car Rentals who were also superb. The villa location is so peaceful with amazing views of the sea, mountains and the countryside. I think a car is necessary should you want to explore Crete a little more however, not essential as there are a few restaurants nearby along wirh a shop, butcher and bar. There are 2 bikes at the villa for use though cyclying uphill in over 40° may not be for everyone. A quad is another option which we availed of also and great fun.
I loved the outdoor facilities of the villa, again we had everything and would sit for hours in the evening sipping on our drinks, playing cards and lighting up the BBQ which a selection of deliciouz meats from the local butchers in the supermarket at the end of the hill. Though, our favourite evening was when Mrs. Rena cooked for us a fabulous Moussaka which was so tasty everyone had seconds. We also gad a fanrastic lady Eleni come to clean our villa and provide us with fresh towels every three days which was always welcomed, she was arrived full of smiles and we always looked forward to seeing her smiling face. I can't recommend this villa enough it was everything and more my family and I could have wished for.
Wow. That's the only way to start off a review for the Mare blue villa. It was everything we had hoped for and more. As well as all the amenities the villa had to offer the welcome and help we were given from Rena and her staff made our family holiday unforgettable.
We stayed in lovely Villa Blue Mare for a week and had a wonderful time! We were 6 adults and 2 children (8 months and 3 years) and found the house just perfect. The villa contained everything we needed and more, and the outdoor area was breathtaking. The kids loved the children's pool, and we could enjoy a nice barbecue by the poolside after they went to bed :) Rena and Sophia were super friendly and really helpful. They even drove us to the supermarked the day we arrived so we could buy necessary groceries. On our last day Rena made us homemade moussaka, and it was amazing!
The villa was a 20min walk away from the nearest beach, but if you are traveling with small children I would recommend to hire a car. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely recommend it to everyone!
