About the property

Bungalow with 2 bedrooms, living room-kitchen, 1 bathroom (max 5 persons)

Bungalow was newly built in 2010, and a very quiet location on the edge of the typical Cretan village Mariou, and only 5 minutes from the beach Plakias (on the south coast of Crete). The bungalow is modern and comfortably furnished and has a private swimming pool (7m by 4m and 1.50m deep). The view of the surrounding area is breathtaking. It's linger here in the tranquility of the south, and yet close (35 min drive to Rethymno) the busier north.

Car: recommended

Detached bungalow with private pool, located on the southern coast of Crete, 5 min car Plakias. Villa Kristina, new since early 2010, is just on the border of the picturesque village Mariou, with breathtaking views of sea and mountains. Very quiet location. In the vicinity are Preveli (with monastery), the Kourtialiatiko gap, and also typically kretenzischr villages like Lefkogia, Asomatos and Myrthios. Plakias can go for shopping (bakers, butchers, fish shop, laundromat, gas station, supermarkets, doctor, pharmacy, and many cozy taverns or restaurants), as well as sea and beach. The town of Rethymno is only 35 min drive. In itself Mariou Mariou Taverna is highly recommended to get good food.

Attention: from the end of March 2012 also Ryanair flights to Chania (both from Belgium and Germany)

Bungalow au calme dans région sauvage etmagnifique

  • 5 of 5

Beau bungalow, très bien équipé (électroménagers de qualité, vaisselle en suffisance) propre, pratique, parfait pour 4 personnes. De la terrasse et la piscine, vue magnifique sur la baie et Plakias.

Bien situé pour visiter le centre et les sites à 2h de route si on veut faire des excursions d'une journée. Voiture indispensable.

Région très venteuse rendant la chaleur de juillet et août tout à fait supportable. Belles plages pas trop fréquentées à proximité.

Beaucoup de tavernes dans les environs, nourriture excellente, variée et pas chère. Coup de Coeur pour la Taverna Mariou à 10min à pied de la location.

Les consignes du propriétaire étaient claires et précises, bon contact avant le départ.

Nous avons vraiment passé un très agréable séjour.

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Mariou. La situation géographique est parfaite pour les visites des environs, la vue est superbe et les plages à quelques minutes. Le bungalow est très bien équipé, il ne manque rien. Nous recommandons également la Taverna Mariou tout près du bungalow, tous les plats y sont excellents et le personnel très souriant.
