Welcome to Villa Maria in Ligres Beach Rethymno

The Villa Maria offers the cultivated ambiance of a house build from natural stone on the shores of the Libyan Sea.

Ligres is a vast beach with coarse sand and fantastic deep sea.
The relatively tough access has fortunately kept the development of tourism away,
making it one of the nicest, tranquil and most secluded beaches on the island.

You should walk the beachfront to Triopetra, till Xiromilia area,
with the amazing rock formations. In the middle of Ligres, a nice redish big rock stands near the sea.

Every day of your stay
will prove to be a new discovery
