Tucked away on a small peninsula extending from the northern edge of the enchanting Samos Island lies Marnei Mare Estate, a luxurious oasis that seamlessly merges the five-star hôtellerie experience with the raw beauty of the natural world. This paradise is the culmination of the Mytilineos Family’s passion and vision to offer guests a serene getaway, nestled in the arms of awe-inspiring nature. Every facet of Marnei Mare is designed to let spirits roam free, against the backdrop of panoramic vistas of the Aegean Sea and the verdant terrains of Samos.
As you step into the estate, a cluster of three bespoke villas awaits, perched gracefully on a 40,000 sq.m. stretch that cascades from pine-forested heights down to the shimmering embrace of the sea. The villas, named Katerina, Stelios, and Nicholas, embody the earth’s tones, drawing inspiration from the volcanic hues and beach pebbles. Each villa, with its array of rooms complete with ensuite amenities, offers vistas that oscillate between the majestic mountains and the boundless sea. Within, the décor celebrates a global sensibility, seamlessly blending international furnishings with the innate simplicity of the island. As well as individual villa bookings the estate can sleep up-to 20 guests and be booked as a private escape for family occasions, group events or retreats.
Guests at Marnei Mare are not mere visitors but participants in an immersive Grecian narrative. With access to two secluded coves equipped with chaise lounges, a sparkling pool, a vibrant pool bar, and even the estate’s own farmstead, there’s no end to the possibilities. One could start the morning gathering eggs or simply lose themselves in the meditative dance of olive groves and organic vegetable patches. As dusk approaches, the estate becomes a haven for relaxation, with options for yoga, meditation, or simply to recline with a glass of the finest Samian wine, bearing witness to the ethereal sunsets over the Ikarian sea.
Beyond the walls of Marnei Mare, Samos itself is an odyssey waiting to be experienced. With a history dating back 25 centuries, it was the birthplace to luminaries such as mathematician Pythagoras and the astronomer Aristarchus and boasts awe-inspiring archaeological wonders such as the Temple of Hera.
