Overview

About the property

Five star luxury villa in Crete

The villa is luxury itself, sporting a gym and indoor swimming pool/jacuzzi, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and several balconies. The generous external terrace overlooks the swimming pool and provides shade in the heat of the day. Take your morning coffee sitting on one of the balconies and splendour in the views of the swimming pool and gardens studded with scarlet hibiscus and crimson bougainvillea, the calm green hills and distant turquoise beaches. Each bedroom is fully air-conditioned for the hottest times of year. The kitchen is extensively equipped with everything a group of up to 10/12 could need for ease and comfort: a dishwasher, oven, large fridge, washing machine, microwave, sandwich toaster and meat grill. In addition, you can benefit from cable TV, a DVD player, an indoor gym, indoor heated pool/jacuzzi, outdoor swimming pool and toddler pool.

Villa Selli combines the traditional features of an old farmhouse with five star luxury bathrooms and kitchen. Set apart in its own grounds of olive and orange trees on a hilltop it is the perfect place to unwind. Selli boasts a list of facilities rarely found in villas to rent in Greece and the owner's aim has been to create a villa where a large party, be it extended family or simply a group of friends, can really holiday in private surroundings with almost every whim catered for!

The beach is never far away in Crete and Gerani Beach – one of the most peaceful and clean 2 km stretches of sandy shoreline in west Crete – is only a 2-minute drive away.

Only five minutes' walk out of the old village of Gerani, the narrow stony ascent to the villa cuts through olive and orange groves. As you approach the villa you are carried back a hundred years to the traditional agrarian economy of Crete: from its hill-top position surrounded by olive trees, the villa commands spectacular views to Gerani and Maleme bay and unspoilt countryside, carpeted with more olive groves and orange orchards. Olive farming has been the dominant industry in this area for centuries if not millennia.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Travelled with extended family for birthday celebrations

This villa has everything ....... 2 pools gym BBQ nice living area and stunning views

would say it sleeps 10 not 12 as it was a little difficult in the annexe with a couple and then 2 youngsters in their 20's in an open plan area but we managed

Car is essential to get anywhere

Stavros and his family the villa owners were very helpful

Worth a visit just for the stunning scenery

Lovely spacious villa.

  • 3 of 5

Excellent location to get away from it all, stunning scenery. Villa and pool both need maintenance and maybe even some updating. Kitchen not adequate for 12. Clean and tidy, Kiki did a great job. All enjoyed the gym, although some equipment was faulty. Cold jacuzzi was great after a workout, but we missed the advertised hot tub. Towels and linen good quality and plentiful.

All in all a great experience.

Gorgeous villa in a splendid spot.

  • 5 of 5

This very spacious house was better than we imagined. There was more than enough space for the large group that we were (7 adults, 4 kids). The pool and terrace are amazing, the view is stunning. Crete is lovely.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had a fantastic time at Villa Seli. We wanted a last minute holiday for us and our two kids and found this villa with a good price and near Chania the town we wanted to visit. We stayed for six nights and we where well impressed. The owne met us and show us the villa, the villa had everything you need and the best part was that it was all to our selves. Highly recommended.
