Gerani villa description

Just a few minutes from the modern beach resorts of Maleme and Platanias, step back in time as you turn into the meandering lane that leads to the picturesque hamlet of Metochi, with a history dating back to the 1700’s, when Crete was still under Turkish rule. The tiny hamlet is laced with evocative stone walls surrounding centuries old buildings built in weathered limestone, with vine covered pergolas and lush gardens overflowing with jasmine and roses. It takes little imagination to evoke an atmosphere of yesteryear, whilst enjoying all the comforts of a relaxing luxury holiday.
Our villas 'Laina' and 'Sofas' – are both listed buildings, entirely renovated in 2010-2011 and sympathetically restored to a level of luxury appreciated by the discerning traveller, seeking comfort in an environment which only an ancient building can provide. Each villa is totally independent,set within its own spacious and private stone walled courtyard garden, private pool, with parking for both villas.


Villa 'Sofas' - 1 bedroom sleeps 2+
Villa 'Sofas' is the perfect romantic holiday haven. Open the wooden picket gate and step into the delightful stone paved courtyard, set behind the stone wall. The villa Sofa is built in warm honeyed limestone, and the old wooden shutters and ivy combine to create a wonderful building, full of character. Surrounded by mature shrubs, lush foliage and stone patios, it is easy to imagine you have stepped back in time. The swimming pool and outside barbecue area provide the perfect promise of fun filled days and evenings.
Step inside, through the old wooden doors into a delightful room laid with flagstones, old stone walls and a wonderful beamed ceiling. The beautiful stone fireplace has been used over many centuries. Throw open the wooden shutters and venture upstairs to the master bedroom and pinch yourself. What could be better than this?

Villa 'Laina' - 4 Bedrooms sleeps 8+
Villa 'Laina' is the perfect place where a large family or group of friends can enjoy a wonderful holiday. Open the wooden picket gate and step into the delightful stone paved courtyard. The picturesque garden is just made for chilling out and soaking up the sun. The ancient courtyard flagstones, the lush foliage and sweet smelling flowers, combine to create a wonderful private area to swim, sun bathe, enjoy a cool drink or relish the mouth watering aroma of food being cooked on the outside barbecue.
Step inside Villa Laina and you’ve stepped back in time. See the graceful stone arch leading the eye from the breakfast kitchen into the lounge with its original Cretan ‘banquettes’ set along the stone wall, and the beamed wooden ceiling – yet there are also modern features to provide the level of luxury you expect to find on a holiday such as a satellite 40” LCD flat screen TV and a luxurious spa bath.
Upstairs there is a huge furnished roof terrace with amazing sea and mountain views

“Metochi Villas”: “Metochi Villas” are a group of 4 officially declared as traditional preservable old mansions – “Sofas”, “Laina”, “Nembarta”, and “Kamares” - dated back to the 18th century. They have been restored with respect to their history, preserving and setting off their original architecture. Our Villa “Laina” and Villa “Sofas” have been renovated in 2010-2011 to meet our valued customer’s expectations. Each Villa is totally independent, surrounded with a stone wall providing absolute privacy. Fully equipped, with all the amenities guaranteeing a relax staying and a perfect base for discovering Crete’s lovely beaches.
