included if you book this accommodation as part of one of our holiday packages
We've plotted your holiday accommodation as accurately as possible. But for some smaller hotels or villas the map may pinpoint the centre of the nearest town rather than the property itself, so make sure you read the location description too.
In the UK, this holiday is only available from the Thomson Group.
This is our 24-hour phone service. You can use it to book days out, find out the local bus times and let us know about any problems that crop up. Prefer to speak to someone face to face? You can call us to arrange a personal visit too.
Contemporary villa with private pool
Your guide to Aghia Marina, Crete, Crete
“Colourful Aghia Marina couldn’t be better if you love being in the thick of the action with a shimmering gold-dust beach on tap.”
Set on top of a hill this large and contemporary villa is ideal for families and large groups
It’s steeped in history, yet cutting-edge. And wonderfully peaceful, yet close to amenities. Granted they might sound like contradictions, but the Kourouni Villa pulls them both off. The villa itself is built in a contemporary Cretan style, so although the chunky stone exteriors look traditional, they’re whisked into the 21st century with arched windows and patio doors. Then there’s the pool. It’s a decent size and comes with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside and out to sea.
Inside, it’s just as vogue. All open-plan, the area feels particularly big thanks to the high ceilings, while the chic kitchen gives it a real Grand-Designs feel. And such is the thought that’s gone into the layout, that you’ll also be able to take in the view from the comfort of a modern three-seater sofa.
Location-wise, the winding road leading to the villa isn’t for the faint hearted. But such is its elevated position, that it was used by the Resistance to fend off German troops during World War II. It saw action, too – spent cartridges have been found embedded in the rock. Elsewhere, Chania is only a 20-minute drive away, while Omalos, the start of the spectacular Samaria Gorge, is easily reached by car. Closer to home, the nearest shops and restaurants are a five-minute drive away.
