About Marc Hinfelaar
After years of dreaming, we decided to develop our small scale resort 'Galini Breeze' a long time ago. We are the owners, Marc and Monique Hinfelaar (both born in 1962, The Netherlands). In summer we live and work here in Agia Galini; in winter time we live in Amsterdam. Our 2 grownup kids both are studying and working in The Netherlands. Greece has always been our favorite holiday destination, and in April 2014 the quest for a suitable plot of land finally ended on this hill near Agia Galini. This location offered the ideal combination of quietness, loveliness and liveliness we were looking for to create our concept ‘Galini Breeze’. Marc focuses primarily on business planning and marketing, while Monique took up styling and furnishing. As a team we run Galini Breeze on a daily basis now, combined with freelance work (in healthcare-communications and management). Finally, in summertime we coordinate rental our apartment in Amsterdam central too. We enjoy music, cultural festivals and concerts very much, and we love good food and wine. Of course we won’t forget to take a sound portion of physical challenges like running and mountain biking. Or just to stroll on the beach or along the Amsterdam canals – we love it!
Marc Hinfelaar purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Marc Hinfelaar chose Agia Galini
This spot, just above Agia Galini is the ultimate location we found after 3 years of research on Crete. With a team of architects of Action Construction (Rethymno), we developed and build the project in 2016 - 2017. First opening was April 2017.
What makes this Apartment unique
Galini Breeze is a luxurious, small-scale holiday resort, quietly situated on a gently sloping hill. Crete is the main historical and cultural center in Mediterranean see, with great nature, beautiful beaches and good food. The ‘Only Adults’ formula guarantees a quiet stay, while the attractive surroundings, the heated swimming pool and its cosy pool-bar invites you to be active some hours too. Each of the four detached studios (for 2 persons) offer maximum privacy. You will enjoy your shady terrace adjacent to the living/sleeping room and roof terrace above!

Wonderful accommodation and hosts.
Galini Breeze is everything it says it is and deserves the five star rating. Simple things done well with no fuss, but plenty of attention to detail!
Galini Breeze is situated just outside the borders of the village of Agia Galini, central south cost of Crete Island (the most southern island of Greece, middle of Mediterranean sea).
Agia Galini was a dormant fishing village once. From the 1960’s the area was favorite among backpackers and hippies; in recent decades more tourists that love some more luxury and convenience found their way to the sunny south coast.
The narrow streets adjacent to the port host small shops and plenty of terraces. Approximately 20 restaurants are located in the village and along the pedestrian promenade. Finally, the village offers some cozy music-cafes and lounge-bars.
Galini Breeze studios are at a 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from the village and its main beaches.
After a day at the beach, hiking in the mountains or sniffing culture and history near Komos Beach, in Galini Breeze you’ll find exactly the rest and privacy you need.
Imagine yourself overlooking an unprecedented wide panorama of Messara Gulf and White Mountains, unique to this gently sloped hill just outside the village.
All in all, Agia Galini is a vibrant village, and in addition Galini Breeze offers a private hide away.
However, you will not find an official dancing here; for this a 30 minutes drive is needed to Plakias or Matala, or – for the diehards – one and a half hour to Hersonissos.
