We just recently returned from a weeks holiday in Villa Minoa in Marathi and it was just heavenly!
The villa is beautiful, spacious, everything is high quality, a beautiful big garden overlooking the beach with stunning views..
We were 5 adults and one toddler and there was more than enough space for all of us, and every one of us adored the villa and Marathi.
The beach is beautiful and kept spotlessly clean, with crystal clear clean water. The bay is absolutely perfect to swim in; shallow, sandy with very few rocks, perfect for children
The village is a small, authentic, relaxing beach town. The local tavernas are lovely, and with everything just a 2 minute walk it really is the perfect setting for a peaceful, calming family holiday.
Alex who coordinated the trip for us, and Spiros the owner were outstanding! They helped us organise birthday cakes, transport, restaurant bookings, this really was above and beyond what we have experienced before from owners / hosts. Whilst always maintaining a respectful distance to never intrude on our holiday.
I can’t rate this highly enough. It was a perfect family holiday for us all, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes calm, laid back, authentic beach vibes, a beautiful home to enjoy it from, and friendly helpful hosts to support your stay.
We will be back!
My family and I stayed in this villa for a month and a half from February - April. The location is absolutely amazing, just meters away from the beautiful Marathi Beach. Coordinating the stay was easy with the help of Alex. While staying there, Spiros was available whenever needed and was the most gracious host we've ever encountered. When we arrived, the fridge was stocked with necessities and a wonderful basket full of fruit was available on the table. While there, Spiros caught a squid and gave us a good portion of it to enjoy. The house itself is gorgeous, with stunning views of the water. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
