In the stress and routine of today’s modern world, we dreamt of creating a living space that one could find solace in. A sacred sanctuary, an escape, to perhaps one of the most enchanting parts of the world, Chania-Crete. An island that has so much to offer one could not possibly grasp the entirety of its grandeur in just one visit.

Inspired deeply from the architectural philosophy of our ancient Minoan for-fathers, and humbled by the beauty of nature surrounding us, our journey of this vision began in 2008.

With passion to intricate detail, Conte Marino Villas were constructed to embody the architectural traits of stability and class of Crete’s Nobel civilization, with that of the exceptional life breathing soil of the grounds in which they lay – enabling nature and structure to become one effortlessly.

Simply put, “ we created a “dialogue” of transparency between Conte Marino Villas and the outside world..” , note from Architects, Aristomenis and George Varoudakis.

Paired with this, lies the unmistakable notion of Cretan Hospitality, where our home becomes yours. Where the purest notions of the fertile land and warm sun are utilized to nourish the soul and unwind the senses daily.

With a contemporary and timeless approach to interior design against a magnificent backdrop of endless green, we have created a masterpiece hide away retreat that will re-define your concept of comfort and privacy.

Step away from the world you know, and take an authentic journey with us into to the heart of Chania through Conte Marino. Once a dream, now a materialized vision, not a space, but rather a pure way of living.
