We visited Terramara as part of our multi-stage honeymoon trip to Western Crete and Athens. In total we stayed for three nights and found the rooms to be beautifully situated, well equiped and very clean. The owner's were approachable and friendly and had clearly put a lot of thought into covering all the requirements guests may have - particularly impressive...

We really enjoyed our stay (two families, 5 nights) in Terramara. Terramara is far more than the nice and well equipped rooms. It's isolated location on a hill gives you a stunning panoramic view over kilometers of land and sea. Really idyllic! As there are no direct neighbours, you can walk freely whereever you want. It feels like having booked...

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...

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...

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

Terramara is located overlooking stunning olive groves and mountains with the sea in the distance. This is one of the most picturesque locations and relaxing holidays I have ever had!

We spent a total of 16 nights with Andrew and Margaret during our summer holiday to Crete this year. We thought we knew Crete (the western end) pretty well, since this was our third visit, but we had never stayed in such lovely surroundings. If you like natural, uninterrupted views and spectacular sunsets you must go to Terramara. The rooms...
