“Lovely, quiet place with friendly hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

What a beautiful place!!! A spacious, clean and well equipped apartment and a beautiful terrasse with a stunning view over the hills and the sea. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at Terramara, which is ideal of you are looking for a calm place to relax, close to nature and not too far from some of the most beautiful beaches in West Crete. Margaret and Andrew are lovely persons and they were really friendly and helpful to us, giving us advices and making us feel at home. It's a pity that we didn't have enough time to try the swimming pool and the barbecue... we would have surely appreciated them!

Room Tip: All rooms have the same beautiful view

If you want stunning views, large spotlessly clean rooms, charming hosts and a location in 'real' Crete, then Terramara has to be your Number One choice. Andrew and Margaret have created a spectacular holiday location where you are free to enjoy the best of Crete's coastal scenery or explore the mountains and gorges which are Crete's 'hidden secret'. Andrew and Margaret are experts on everything Western Crete has to offer and, if they don't know, they will find out for you.
The self-catering accommodation has been carefully thought out to allow guests maximum freedom and comfort with the benefits of first class facilities such as the swimming pool and bar for on site relaxation.
Only 45 minutes from Chania Airport and close to all the main sights, Terramara has an unrivalled location. Sit back and enjoy a spectacular sunset, Ouzo in hand and your own barbecue gently sizzling-Terramara, a little piece of paradise.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally well equipped and all have stunning views

Very nice place, wonderful sight to the Mediterranean sea. Located in the mountain north west of crete not så far from Chania. We recommend this place for those who are looking for rest, calmness and fresh air to spend one or two weeks (Specially couples) there.
Very lovely rooms, clean, well furnished, very good service and besides very lovely personal (Andrew & Margrete). Swimming pool, and even place for grill.

We have travelled all over the world and stayed in some amazing locations, and Terramara is right up there with the best. The accommodation is at the west end of Crete set in the foothills of the Lefka Ori Mountains. There is a choice of four different rooms, with us choosing the double as it included some cooking facilities which suited our stay. The rooms are very well set out, spacious with all the essentials, plus satellite TV for those who require it. Step outside the back and all the rooms have their own patio with unbeatable views down over Kissamos bay. The sun sets over the peninsula on the far side creating a wonderful setting for a evening meal and glass of wine. The olive groves spread out to the south and the mountains can be viewed to the south and east, it really is an amazing setting.
There is a pool on the site at the end of the room block which is a perfect place to relax and again take in the stunning scenery. It has a private bar serving cold drinks, which is also self-service if the owners are not about. We spent many days by the pool as it was simply a perfect place to relax in the sun.
There are a huge number of places to visit in west Crete, which has some of the best beaches in Europe. Ancient ruins and monasteries just add to a well rounded holiday to suit all travellers.
The owners Andrew and Margaret have spent many years choosing and creating a wonderful place to stay. They are always on hand for advice and have great knowledge of the local area. They will tailor to your needs and it is this personal touch that will make Terramara a place you will want to visit again and again.

Room Tip: All four rooms are perfect

We went a year ago with our 7 month old twins (hence the delay in writing review!) and it really is such a wonderful place. The views are stunning and the owners were brilliant in helping us out. I would thoroughly recommend it if you want a chilled out holiday
