Villa Marina I


Villa Marina I is a stunning eight bedroom Premier Villa situated on a gentle hillside overlooking the sea in the Elounda region of Crete, Greece. The site is surrounded by handmade stone walls containing mature gardens with numerous olive trees, flowers and other Cretan / Mediterranean vegetation.

Villa Marina I is sister to Villa Marina II and together they form a delightful estate which can be rented as one for larger groups or independently.  The villas have total privacy from each other.

These stunning contemporary residences offer panoramic views of magnificent sunrises and sunsets against backdrops of the Mediterranean sea and the Cretan landscape. The architecture, sophisticated furnishings and beauty of the surroundings combine to make these villas unique. The estate is approached via a stone paved road lined with plants between lit rocks and a small stone bridge that leads to welcoming stone paved courtyards, shaded by olive trees and coloured by flowers.
