Truly as good as it looks!

  • 5 of 5

Marietta Villa in Gouves, Crete is a truly fantasic holiday location for any family holiday. An amazing villa in a beautiful location overlooking the olive tree-covered hills with the sea in the background.

You have the peace and quiet of being 10 minutes from the sea in a very secure, beautiful villa equipped with everything you might need and more! The villa was immaculately kept with a cleaner twice weekly. The swimming pool was fantastic. Yiannis and his father looked after our every need, were very welcoming and provided a hire car at very reasonable rates.

We cannot recommend this villa more highly, our children loved it and we would all love to go again!

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in villa Marietta July 2013, and it is absolutely stunning. It looks exactly like the pictures, the kids loved the pool. The BBQ area was great for evening meals. The villa was very clean inside and the views from the villa were amazing. It's a great location but a car is necessary.

The owner Yiannis and his family were very helpful and polite.

We loved every minute staying here and can't wait to visit again.
