I stumbled upon Conte Marino Villas by accident a couple of years ago, went for one day and loved it so much I stayed for a week!
Not much impresses me but the passion of the owner Despina Sivaropoulos in describing the details of these magnificent properties was infectious! Enough for me to want to assist in letting the world know that in one corner of Crete this wonderful place existed.
Architectural Design and an attention to detail were first when this was originally conceptualized and remains in place today.
When I heard that these villas were in the final competition for 'Leading Luxury Private Villa in Greece' I was not surprised nor did it ever occur to me that they wouldn't win.
There was tremendous competition from some stunning properties but they prevailed as the winners at the World Travel Awards!!
Fast forward to 2016 and many more awards for these villas!
