Leave Chania behind for a while and return to your own villa or apartment just above a small sandy beach with full, panoramic sea views and...there just out in the blue water an islet is visible.

Mare Nostrum Villas is located at Loutraki a magnificent place, sandy beach just 10km from the picturesque town of Chania. The location gives you the feeling that you are so far away from the city and yet so close to it, as it is only 15 minutes from the city center.

The ride for the airport is less than 10 minutes away and for the port of Souda you will need about 15 minutes.

Whether in the pool or on the all-surrounding balcony areas - there are always panoramic sea views. Early morning before the others are up and about, you might just want to sink into one of the leather sofas and alternate your glance between the pages of that book you promised yourself to read for months and the vista through the sliding doors as the early morning breeze, the freshness of the sea wakes you softly, gently. 

Mare Nostrum offers you a travel picture-book image of the great place by the sea.

A glass fronted restaurant just to the left of you - on the way to the beach - which is 30 seconds away - serves your desired dish of the day. A cafe bar provides coffees, drinks and light snacks. The sea is protected from any rough waves and storms. 

Mare Nostrum is four different two-storey buildings. So if you want the capacity of a villa for a larger family or group, take two of the apartments that are one above the other and have the exclusive use of one of the pools. The kitchen area, living room and bedrooms, all allow plenty of magical bright sunlight in, tempting you towards the pool, the beach or just to gaze out of the large windows at the view, a boat out at sea, the islet outside. 

Decor is modern, spacious, light, bright, clean and designed to highlight the sea, the sky, the views. You should enjoy comfort on your travels, so every bedroom has its own bathroom and there is a separate WC for visitors. A clothes washing machine is provided. Good closet space, fair-sized bedrooms and enough overall living space to feel very comfortable, spacious (you don't need to go out just to break out!)...add the terrace and pool areas and you feel free and un-crowded. 

Take the footpath down to the beach and feel the sand beneath your feet .... swim, relax, take a walk via a fresh juice at Mare Nostrum's cafe and go back to see the others at the villa. Perhaps in the afternoon you will just swim in the pool and watch the sea, enjoy the picture of children playing on the beach below, watch the sky and that one lump of a cloud reflected in that perfectly colored water. 

Nearby Marathi, a droplet of a village, has two fine sandy beaches and three waterfront places to eat. The above average and delightfully water's-edge positioned Loukoulos, serves very good salads and meals ranging from fish to meats, crisp courgettes and more (that is if you can manage to pass your very own Mare Nostrum restaurant which you can take a few steps to at any moment you choose).

Chania, its shops, restaurants and cafes hugging the Venetian harbour is 25 just minutes by car.
