The J&G Villas complex consists of two luxurious villas, conveniently located in the picturesque village of Kolymvari in NW Crete, 22 km from the historical town of Chania and a short drive from the coast. Since the area is not a mass tourism destination, it has retained its original character and offers a unique combination of local, traditional and modern. Visitors may want to take the opportunity to meet locals, taste fresh seasonal products and regional specialties, walk along the seaside promenade and dine at family-run restaurants and taverns. There are numerous golden sand, crystal clear beaches with both popular and quieter spots to choose from, depending on your mood. The area also boasts many historical and archaeological sites, monasteries and museums. The village of Kolymvari has all necessary facilities, including supermarkets, bakeries, a post-office, bank and ATM machines, petrol stations and a doctor's office. There is frequent bus service to Chania and other towns as well as a convenient taxi stand. If you enjoy late nights out or shopping, the lively resort of Platanias is just a 10-minute drive away, while cosmopolitan Chania and its wider variety of shopping and entertainment is just 20 minutes away. The two villas, “Villa Filira” and its brand new sister “Villa Ianira”, enjoy a privileged hillside position overlooking Kolymvari Bay. They are absolutely independent of each other, with the former having been built on a spacious 5000 m² property and the later on a 3000 m² plot. Each of them is entirely fenced in, boasts its own infinity pool and is surrounded by lush olive groves and beautiful gardens. A children’s play area can be added upon request for our young guests. The villas’ architecture, color schemes, decoration and furnishings have taken their natural setting into account in order to provide guests looking for privacy and seclusion with the peace and serenity they desire. The villas’ oversized glass balcony doors and bay windows allow sunlight to flood in while opening onto verandas and patios and providing breath-taking panoramic views of the sea and mountains. The villas have been outfitted with comfortable, high quality furnishings which are at once cozy and elegant. Special attention has been paid to every detail, including equipping the properties with top-quality, state-of-the-art modern conveniences such as wireless internet, flat screen Led TVs, music systems, alarms, cameras as well as air-conditioning in all rooms. J&G Villas boast unique aesthetics with an authentic Cretan feel combined with a wide variety of services from which to choose.

We are both natives of beautiful Crete and want your experience here to reflect the pride that we feel for the natural splendor and historical magnificence of this land. We lovingly constructed our villas in a style that fits in with the gorgeous landscape we are so lucky to have surrounding the properties, and furnished and decorated them in an understatedly elegant manner befitting of the island’s traditional aesthetic. We invite you to come and stay in these luxurious villas for unforgettable holidays on the majestic island of Crete!
Why the Owner Chose Chania (Hania): Located along the sun-drenched northwest coast of the island of Crete, the villa is nestled between the sea and mountains and boasts proximity to beaches, historical towns and spectacular mountain trails and gorges. Elegant decor, luxurious amenities, top-notch services and stunning private grounds are but a few of the reasons to choose the Villa Filira for your holiday in Crete.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: From the outset, the concept behind the villa was to create a vacation home of uniquely high standards with elegant, modern aesthetics and contemporary conveniences, and as such no expense was spared in its construction, outfitting or decor.
