Occupying the secluded and tranquil Marnei peninsula from where its name derives, Marnei Mare’s cluster of three beautiful private villas and the discreetly withdrawn reception cottage are set in a 40,000 sq.m. orchard reaching from a lush pine forest down to the crystal clear Aegean sea. The villas’ stucco finish replicates the colors of the earth and the pebbles of the nearby beaches, while the traditional dry stone walls were built by local stone masons, creating a setting that is in perfect harmony with the natural environment.
The orchard itself overlooks Megalo Seitani beach, a designated conservation area for rare fauna and flora. Apart from the villas, the orchard includes an olive grove, a vegetable garden, a vineyard with a variety of grapes, aromatic herb gardens, colorful flowers and luscious fruit trees, all grown and tended according to strict organic guidelines. In this scenery, guests can choose to either relax on their villa’s verandas, swim and snorkel at the property’s two private coves, lounge by the pool taking in the views and being pampered, or set-off on excursions, whether to nearby Karlovassi with its nightlife and restaurants or, by sea or road, to a multitude of coastal or inland destinations which offer a broad variety of activities and pastimes.
Marnei Mare is conveniently located 45km from the Samos International airport and just a ten minute drive from Karlovassi town and port, which combines traditional elements and locations, with all modern facilities and amenities.
The villas are light, sunny and include fully equipped kitchens, marbled baths and showers, indoor / outdoor seating and dinning areas, outdoor shower and BBQ, satellite TV, internet, DVD, CD, telephone and fax service. All linen and toweling is of the highest quality.
Additional services are available upon request & at a fee.
The fully-equipped open-plan kitchen, is separated by a counter with stools from the adjacent dining area, offering unobstructed sea views. The dining area opens into a comfortable and cozy sitting room with sliding French windows that spill out to verandas with stunning sea views. High-ceiling with exposed wood beam gables, sitting rooms feature working log-burning fireplaces for cooler early spring and late autumn evenings. The kitchens also open onto the shaded rear patios equipped with a charcoal-burning barbeque where mouth-watering grilled meat or freshly-caught fish can be prepared. Each patio has an outdoor shower, ideal for a quick cool-down when sunbathing in the garden or returning from the beach. Terracotta-tiled front verandas are shaded by wooden pergolas and offer stupendous panoramic views of the property’s gardens and vineyard, the southern Aegean, and Samos’s incredibly lush mountains. Verandas are ideal for relaxing over morning coffee or a sunset cocktail. Each of the three villas boasts its own private landscaped paved garden which offers a third al fresco dinning area option to guests.
