Wonderful two week stay, unfortunately Stelios and Maria were on holiday but Antonis their son really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble. Villa was exactly as described, in a quiet area but walking distance to the town of Pigi with two Tavernas and a good bar.
Etouri, the agents, provided us with the best service in terms of booking taxis, restaurants and beach clubs.
We look forward to a return visit.
A fabulous villas for large groups
We hired this villa for a week as a group of 12 and had a fantastic time. The pool was great with plenty of sun beds.
There really is something for every age.
The villa is in a very peaceful location and not overlooked. We felt very safe there.
The nearest shops are a 15 minute walk and have everything you need.
There is a great restaurant called the leaky cauldron which served delicious food and was so reasonable.
The owners Stelios & Maria were gracious hosts and always available to assist us when needed.
We ate in their garden restaurant one night which was a very special experience, the food was amazing and stelios was very informative about where the food had come from.
We loved it at villa Mary and hope to go back one day.
Beautiful villa with a great pool / facilities
We have just returned from a week stay, 3 families of 2 adults and 2 children, aged from 9 years to 10 months. The main part of the villa and the first floor have recently been refurbished to a great standard, we were very impressed. The only thing that let the villa down was the basement level, which hadn't been touched. It was very dated and dark, which was ok for sleeping but there was no relaxation/dining area, unlike the other two floors. It wasn't a big issue as we all ate together but i think that it's something that needs to be addressed and probably will be. Its also away from the main living quarters, so when the adults wanted to relax in the evening, two children had to sleep in a cot / on the sofa in the main part and had to be moved each night, which was not ideal. The owner Stelios and Maria, were great hosts, bringing us home made food which was amazing. They cooked us a meal one evening, the best mousakka I have ever eaten. Lots left over, enough for two days of food. I also would not hesitate booking with Kostas / Etouri travel. Very quick at responding to emails and even arranged for us to use the sun lounges at a beach club, with complimentary wine and fresh fruit. I would definitely recommend them and this villa.
A great villa with a great pool and plenty of space to enjoy!
Has everything you'd want and need, large pool, kids pool, Jacuzzi, gym, football pitch, mini kids playground, basketball court and table tennis.
The owners, Stelios & Maria, were close by should you need and were very welcoming and full of good knowledge and advice on the surrounding area.
Amazing family Villa
The Villa Mary won't disappoint! It has just been modernized almost throughout to a very high standard. The basement rooms had not been done when we stayed, but everywhere else had it was clean, modern and it was evident that a lot of care had been taken. The photos do not do it justice.
As we were traveling with small children my only slight concern was the children's play area, although you could see the swing, slide etc was not old they had started to deteriorate in the heat of Crete, and especially at the top of the slide, the little ones had to go down it on a towel other wise it could have nipped their legs.
We had a Yoga lesson and a Tai massage by the lovely Mireille, I would highly recommend her.
The owners were welcoming, and the few things we needed were addressed quickly. We would go back and we recommend the villa. it was our first holiday to Crete and we absolutely loved it. Rethymno is a short drive away, and it was about an hours drive from the airport.
Visited the villa with my girlfriend and five other couples. Great holiday. Loved the villa, perfect for big groups, plenty of space for everyone inside and outside, and the basketball court, football pitch and pool are all pretty unique.
The owner Mr. Stelios is a great guy and very helpful. For €10/person he whips up a fantastic dinner - well worth the money.
Would highly recommend Villa Mary!
Our villa is located 3 km south from the north coast of Rethymno, between the villages of Pigi and Loutra, as well as from the nearest-awarded EU blue flag-beach. Also, Rethymno old town is just 10 km away (about 10 min by car).
The nearest shops and mini markets are within a short walking distance from the Villa, approximately 800 meters away. Also, meals can be provided upon request from the owners' taverna next to the Villa!
The location gives you the advantage of staying outside a quiet village and be close to the living areas and the beach at the same time! Platanias and Adelianos Kampos, which are only 4-5 km away, are well known tourist areas where you can find everything such as beach bars, clubs, restaurants, taverns, shops and supermarkets!
If you would like to travel around Crete, we could give you advice for many places around the villa, according to your interests. Some sightseeing that you have to visit are: The historical monastery of Arkadi (7 km away), The ancient Eleftherna and the village of Margarites (16-18 km away) and many others that we will suggest to you when you arrive in our villa!
