Just Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed absolutely everything !

Very clean rooms, perfect location (everything was in walking distance), excellent facilities, modern building and the view very spectacular.

I usually never comment on any of the places I stay however the Kosta Mare merits any expectation.

Thank you Kosta Mare for an amazing experience!

The most amazing place in Crete

  • 5 of 5

What can someone say about this magnificent place?

The Villa is on a quiet place, with trees, pool, Jacuzzi, and a beautiful garden, and all of the facilities are BRAND NEW and of course I will never forget the AMAZING VIEW.

Ohhhh my God the View of the sea can relax you so much while you are on the pool or taking your coffee. We have never – NEVER – see such a great view before.

There is no better place to stay that combines all the above.

We will for sure return next year.

Villa Kosta Mare is located in Atsipopoulo village, an amazing location, as it is within walking distance to a playground and cafe. Every day amenities can be reached at hand, as a mini market, a fish shop, a taverna and a bakery all located in Atsipopoulo, are just a short drive away (less that 5 minutes).

Atsipopoulo features a convenient location, as it is just 10 minutes away by car from the city of Rethymnon. The village has been also characterized as a traditional settlement of medium cultural value and has a great artistic past.

The sandy beach of Gerani is also very close, 6 minutes away by car, ready to welcome you in its clear blue waters. It's a relatively small beach and it is slightly organised with a few umbrellas, sun beds and taverns, also ideal for snorkeling. Whilst on the beach and some meters south, one should visit the cave of Gerani, one of the most beautiful caves in the island!

Furthermore, 10 minutes away by car, you will find the beach of Episkopi, which is a beautiful, sandy beach with clear blue shallow waters, suitable for families. You will also find taverns and beach bars along the way, absolutely it’s worth visiting!
