We had the best time at Terramara during our honeymoon! We only spent two nights here, and regretted not planning for more. The rooms look out over the most amazing view we had on all of Crete, and the patio could not have been more relaxing. The rooms were bright, clean and cozy. Margaret and Andrew were the best hosts...

Had a great time in Terramara, Margaret and Andrew were amazing hosts. The views from the rooms are perfect with a lovely balcony to sit out on which gave us a really peaceful time away. The rooms themselves where clean and bright, and the bed was very comfortable. We had a hire car so getting around the island was really...

Margaret and Andrew are great hosts and their place is a wonderful location up in the hills of Western Crete. Margaret went above and beyond to find us things to do and see locally and checked in to make sure all was well.

A lovely private place to stay. Only four rooms each with their own en-suite and balcony with a beautiful view down to the sea. Margaret is a great host with lots of local knowledge and suggestions of places to visit and eat at. Visited in the Spring and there were lots of local flowers!

We found Terramara purely by chance driving along the old road from Chania to Kissamos. Margaret was out but left her phone number on the door. One call later, and she so kindly offered to let us just sit at the pool and drink a beer! In the end my girlfriend and I took room 3 and loved every minute....

Last year in August, we found Terramara by chance searching on Tripadvisor....We had a wonder full time! The accommodation is simple and clean, exactly as I like! it is a quiet spot, surrounded by beautiful landscapes. The view from the Studio is breathtaking. After a long day sightseeing our little boy enjoyed the refreshing pool while we enjoyed a relaxing...

We spent a couple of nights at Terramara in May whilst touring around Crete. Although we've visited the island many times before, we hadn't been to this area. Having spent a few nights in the middle of Rethymno (which was great) it was quite a contrast to get to the peace and quiet of the countryside. Margaret met us and...

Terramara is a gem . Set on a beautiful hillside overlooking mature olive groves looking to the sea and mountains, this is a spectacular location. But there's much more to it than that .Margaret and Andrew really know how to make you welcome .Obliging is an understatement. They could not have been more welcoming,caring or generous The accommodation is beautifully...

With stunning views and great hospitality, Terramara is a hidden gem that looks out over Kissamos Bay to the west and the mountain and valleys to the south. You can easily spend the day at sevreal destinations and still return to rest and relax poolside.

We found Terramara purely by accident on our first day in Crete this summer after getting completely lost looking for the villa we had booked to stay in. As it turns out getting lost was the best thing we could have done! The place is just lovely and Margaret was so kind that we ended up making Terramara our home...
