"Beautiful Villa with a personal touch"

"Beautiful Villa with a personal touch"
  • Submitted: Oct 13, 2013

We spent a wonderful week in sumptuous surroundings . The Villa is tastefully designed and beautifully situated overlooking Kolymbari. It has picturesque views from every aspect to both the mountains and the sea.

What makes the stay at Villa Filira special however, is the personal touch from Roula and Manolis the Villa owners and an extra delight is the free use of the vegetable garden with its organic produce and herbs.

I'd recommend this Villa to anyone who wants to both rest in and explore Western Crete.

Beautilful Villa, and Wonderful Hosts

A group of 5 of us recently spent a week at Villa Filira. It was everything we had imagined and more. The pictures just do not do this place justice. It is magnificent! The property, the grounds, the garden, the infinity pool - everything was perfect and exceptionally well adorned. We were only a short drive away from a Super Market but with the wonderful gardens, we had complete access to all the fresh vegetables (zucchini, eggplant, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.) that we could ever imagine, herbs (oregano, rosemary, chives, etc.) and their pomegranate and limes were the best I have ever tasted! Because the place was so beautiful, with such a magnificient view, we had a hard time pulling ourselves away from the Villa. The outdoor space is heavenly!! That said, I would highly recommend visiting Chania, a 20 minute drive from the Villa, as it is beautiful. The property was clean, well maintained, spacious and super comfortable for 5 adults to live together easily. Roula and Manoulis, the owners, were very accommodating, and always accessible. Roula was quick to respond to all of our questions and offered assistance and useful information in every way possible. We were greeted with an amazing welcome basket complete with home-made Raki, Wine, Honey, Olive Oil and Lemonade. Both Roula and Manoulis were very warm and hospitable. I would highly recommend this property to any friend or relative looking for a place to stay in Crete. Thank you to Roula and Manoulis for making our stay that much more pleasant!!

Fabulous villa,wonderful owners and beautiful view

  • Submitted: Sep 20, 2013

This is, quite simply, the best villa we have ever visited. It is luxurious, with splendid views, and the owners are charming people who do their best to make us feel welcome. The only drawback is that It is a mile from bars and tavernas but that also means it is very peaceful. I strongly recommend it for a relaxed comfortable holiday.

"A stunning villa in every sense"

"A stunning villa in every sense"
  • Submitted: Sep 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Our first visit to Crete has completely won us over not least because of the stunning Villa Filira. Easy to find, we were warmly welcomed by Roula and her husband who were justifiably proud of this beautiful home. An exceptionally high standard of decor and fittings, it had the feel of a luxury hotel but the comfort of a home. The bedrooms are very pretty, the kitchen spacious and well equipped. The outdoor eating area and pool is stunning, the loungers comfortable and there is plenty of shade for pale Brits! The gardens are lovely and Roula actively encouraged us to use the produce grown in the kitchen garden. We more or less prepared an evening meal with the freshly picked aubergine, courgette, tomatoes and chillies - fantastic. The only point to make is that while it is 1.5k from Kolymbari, it is not walkable. This takes you to the outskirts of the village (very well stocked with supermarket, butcher, baker etc) but it is another few km to the harbour and tavernas. However, the taxi firm is very reasonable and reliable! Would 100% recommend this villa for a relaxing and comfortable holiday in a lovely spot.

We would highly recommend this villa to anyone visiting Crete. The villa is a lovely size, high spec, nicely furnished and every little detail has been thought about.

You ideally need a car even to get into the nearby village but its such a lovely villa we didn't want to leave for long.

The owner, Roula, was lovely and very helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed plus some well received extras including local wine, home made preserves and olive oil. We were also able to benefit from the produce grown in the gardens including melons, tomatoes, courgettes to name a few.

We would not hesitate to return and hope we will next year.
