We loved the amount of space at this villa, it’s a huge traditional property with a beautiful pool & gardens kept immaculate by Manolis. He prepared a lovely meal on arrival which was gratefully received, the Greek hospitality is the best in the world. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa, perfect for a family of 6. We particularly liked the upper balcony where we had our meals overlooking the olive trees & sea & mountains with a lovely breeze. Manolis had left lots of information on the surrounding area & best bakery etc. He spoke perfect English & was a true gentleman with great attention to detail, he gave us a gift of olive oil to bring home too. We will definately return in the future. Thank you Manolis for a memorable holiday.
I wish to thank this group of three for sharing their experience at M&M villa. I am also pleased that all had a wonderful stay and appreciated the care and attention given to them. The villa can accommodate up to 6 persons... It is also ideal for smaller families or groups of friends who are looking for space, comfort and privacy. The property and its unique large pool contribute in assuring a successful stay. Thank you for coming!
Top class in every way.
A wonderful villa in a superb setting. Manolis was waiting for us when we arrived, even though it was gone midnight, with a smile and a lovely home prepared meal. The villa is superbly equipped and beautifully furnished. The pool is big with plenty of space around it for sunbathing or sitting in the shade. It has a pool house with a bathroom which like all the villa, is beautifully finished and very convenient as the pool is accessed by walking around the villa through a lovely garden.
The view from the balcony is a wonderful panoramic scene of olive groves, white mountains and sea, it really is spectacular!
The nearest village is Kolymbari which is 3 minutes drive. It has great supermarkets and some lovely tavernas and restaurants. I would highly recommend Palio Arhontiko on the sea front. It's extremely high class cuisine at reasonable prices. Try the Mushroom starter - Wow!
Royal Octopus diving is superb. We snorkelled with them and I completed my PADI open water.
In summary, we had an amazing holiday in a wonderful villa. Thanks Manolis. We WILL be back!
I wish to thank Carol and her family for taking the time to share her experience... I am especially grateful for her kind words towards me... I am happy that they all enjoyed their vacation here at my villa and that they also enjoyed Kolymbari with its facilities... The villa offers comfort and space situated in a beautiful setting where one can admire the sea, the mountains and olive grove as he sits on the veranda enjoying a meal or just relaxing. The pool is large, private, beautifully designed and has a complete adjoining bathroom with enclosed shower, toilet, bidet and vanity to be used at the convenience of the villa's guests. The pool house near-by is used as a storage space for pool equipments and others. Again thank you and see you soon again at M&M Villa.
Top of the line
Outstanding! Beautiful pool, villa, and country side. Very private. Sleeps six comfortably. The bleating of the neighbor's goats and calls from the roosters added to the ambiance. The view is terrific. See what an entire valley of olive trees looks like. Manolis is a wonderful gentleman who was very responsive with our questions before we arrived, left us a great meal for our late arrival and demonstrated great pride in his villa.
Somewhat remote, about 30 minutes from Chania, but close to beautiful beaches we shared with only a few locals on very warm mid September days and charming mountain villages close by. The crush from the cruise ships generally didn't reach this far. Excellent restaurants, bakery and market near by.
I would like to thank this beautiful family of 4 adults from America for their review. I am also happy to learn that all have enjoyed the villa and pool and have enjoyed their trip scouting western Crete.
M&M villa is well located and ideal for those who want to discover western Crete or just relax around a unique and spacious pool. It is situated on the hillside of Marathokefala with great sea and mountain views, only 2 kilometers away from the town of Kolymbari with its many facilities (supermarkets, butchers, bakery and pastry shop, pharmacy, post office, bank and ATM) which are all at the disposition of the travelers during their stay. Kolymbari is also the place where one will find the closest beach to the villa and a variety of beautiful cafes, taverns and restaurants by the sea side. Ideal for those who would like to enjoy good Cretan traditional dishes while admiring a great sea view. In addition to the above, one will also find in the villa's area some of the most beautiful beaches that the Mediterranean has to offer : Falarsana, Elafonissi, Balos-Gramvoussa and others. Vibrant night life can be found at 15 minutes away from the villa by car at Platanias. Chania, 30 minutes away from the villa by car, a jewet not to be missed, is the area's biggest center known all over Greece for its old Venetian town and harbor. All for you to discover and enjoy!

it was for the second time that we rented the villa and as last year, it was marvelous. The villa is very spacious and has all comfort, the swimming pool is lovely and beautiful and the bathroom nearby very comfortable.
The view is amazing, the sea and the hills. Quiet and yet nearby Kolymbari, a restfull and beautiful place at the sea, not overcrowded and with many nice restaurants.
The owner Manolis is very friendly and even cooked for us a special cretan stifado!
everything was provided, even a welcome diner and some food for the first morning!
there is beautiful spacious terrace but the only minor point was the difficulty to shelter for the sun in the morning, there was a curtain but because of the wind, this was not really efficient.
It was the best villa we ever had during our vacation and we hope to come again.
Marc and Lucie
I would like to thank this beautiful couple for their review and I was pleased to welcome them to M&M villa for a second time. I am also please that they have enjoyed the villa and the swimming pool as in their first visit. As for the note pertaining to the curtain on the veranda, if the curtain had been properly placed outside the ramp of the veranda, the problem caused by the wind would have not occurred. Unfortunately, we were not made aware of this during their stay. Again thank you for coming and I am looking forward to welcome you again.
Beautiful and in a Stunning location
This was our second visit to M and M Villa - having spent two weeks here last year. Again we weren't disappointed. It is a truly lovely position with views of both the sea and the mountains. The Villa itself is extremely clean and very well stocked with everything you can think that you may need to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable. Again Manolis provided us with food on arrival - meaning we didn't have to rush to the supermarket straight away.
Having been told by my sister that my husband and I were celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary - Manolis provided a lovely cake and sparkling wine for us - a lovely way to celebrate, on the veranda with the stunning views.
The Swimming Pool is a lovely size and enjoyable to swim in. The depth range allows for more nervous swimmers to swim comfortably at one end and the more adventurous to have deeper depths to enjoy. It is too easy to just sit on the veranda and watch the world go by - and forget to go out and explore the rest of Crete. We did, however, get out and manage a fair bit of visiting and walking. A lovely two weeks again. Thank you"
I was pleased to welcome to my villa once more these two beautiful couples from the UK, two sisters and their husbands. I was especially honored to have them celebrate at M&M villa one of the couples 40th wedding anniversary. Big event! I would like to thank the four of them for their beautiful review. I am pleased to learn that their 2nd visit at my villa was just as enjoyable as their 1rst one. From year to year, we continue and strive on giving to travelers who put their trust in us a special welcome in a well kept villa, a unique property with gardens, large pool, views and tranquil setting. Among so many other villas, thank you for choosing M&M villa. See you again soon and many more anniversaries to the four of you!
A simply stunning villa, pool and location!!!
We have recently returned having spent three weeks in Villa M&M with our family and cannot praise this villa highly enough. There was nothing that Manolis (the owner) hadn’t thought of to make our stay more enjoyable including music CDs, movie DVDs and a selection of books (in his library) along with a very well equipped kitchen. The villa is very comfortable & spacious and being on two levels meant that we (the grandparents) could have our own space and also be with the family on the upper floor for evening meals and drinks on the balcony which looks across at the beautiful White Mountains and surrounding countryside. On our arrival, Manolis had prepared a meal with wine and soft drinks so that we didn’t need to go shopping until the next day.
Everything is immaculately kept and very clean and exactly as shown in the photographs. He even provides towels for use around the pool, something we have never come across before when renting a villa. There is a large family bathroom beside the pool, with a shower and toilet. The pool is amazing and the view is breath taking. Manolis cleans the whole area every day in the early morning so that it doesn’t disrupt your day and once a week the pool is deep cleaned. The pool is cleaned without the use of chemicals but with salt.
The gardens are quite amazing with olive and fruit trees and some beautiful flowers, particularly the beautiful Angels Trumpets which flowered for the last couple of days of our stay. There is also a herb garden which clients are welcome to use if they do their own cooking. The downstairs apartment has a balcony that overlooks the garden and is so quiet and peaceful. Nothing to be heard but birdsong.
We all enjoyed our stay at M&M villa, which was in a fantastic location to explore the Eastern side of Crete and cannot thank Manolis enough for making our stay so enjoyable.
I wish to thank this wonderful family for their kind words and their enthusiasm about the villa.
I was very please to read that M&M villa met and exceeded their expectations. For me, the owner, it is the greatest satisfaction to know that my guests had a memorable and restful vacation and the enjoyed my welcome, the villa with its privilege location, the lush and diverse gardens, the pool with its unique design and the pool washroom and area.
I hope to have you all back at M&M Villa.
Thank You again
