Guestbook comments from the owner
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.

Very close to paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family (6 adults) stayed at the villa for ten days. It was perfect from the beginning. Driving through the gate we entered a garden full of flowers, olive and apricot trees as well as herbs, not to mention the vegetable garden we discovered later. Everything was excellently kept, and we made ample use of the latter three.

Entering the house we were overwhelmed by the spacious living room - tastefully furnished and decorated - and kitchen area, that invites to prepare breakfast and dinner and offers a lot of kitchen helpers and gadets. But even more impressive was the view over the infinity pool, down on Kolymbari and the sea.

The sleeping rooms and bath rooms are all beautifully furnished individually and offer solitary space for everyone. There is even a basket containing shampoo, shower gel and other cosmetics.

For every time of the day there is a optimal patio, with view to the sea for breakfast or catching the afternoon sun for dinner. There was always a slight breeze from the sea to allow sitting in the sun even at noon.

Villa Filira offers virtually everything required for a perfect holiday and none of us had any issue that could not be satisfied.

Within 5 minutes driving range there are two villages, Spilia with an "always open" super market and a gas station and Kolymbari with excellent fish restaurants, a bakery and super markets.

Roula and Manolis, thank you again for the opportunity to be at your villa. Your affectionate and hearty reception and the tavern and excursion recommendations really were the icing on the cake for a perfect holiday.

We will highly recommend Villa Filira to our friends.

Best regards
Elke, Thomas and family

Beautilful Villa, and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5
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!!

A simply stunning villa to fall in love with

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the villa with our 3 children in late July. The house was simply far more than what we expected. Being a villa guest for years I can tell that this is a truly exceptional property, that invites you to unwind and relax. If we ever get to have a summer house on our beloved island of Crete, that is just exactly the kind of place we would love to own.Thank you for your hospitality and we promise to be back soon .

We stayed at Villa Filira the last 10 days in march and it was hard leaving such a wonderful place.

It's a great feeling being treated as a 5 star guest in a boutique hotel and in the same time the warmful cretan hospitality makes you feeling like home.
What amazed us:

The welcome on the airport where Roula the owner was waiting for us.
The villa is surrounded by magnificient olives and citrus trees and the different aromatic plants.
The villa has a very high standard and perfectly maintained are the outside areas with a spectacular view over the mountains, the sea and the lovely village of Kolympari.
The 3 terraces let us choose where we wanted to have breakfast or al fresco dining.
The gorgious barbecue- place where we took the aperitif and tasted the local fresh fish on the grill.
Inside, the villa is very tasteful decorated and we won't forget the nice attention for our son a nice pet-dog on his bed. Many thanks!!!
The villa was cleaned and the linen changed twice during our stay of ten days.
The best lamb ever!Roula is a perfect hostess and a great chef and let us taste the cretan cuisine.

I nearly missed to mention the very nice housewine of Villa Filira and the homemade welcome hampers.

A very well composed information and documentation about the island,different excursions and local restaurants.(Great recommandations we started our cretan adventure in the Argentina Restaurant, a local tavern with authentic good food and great family hospitality.)

Many thanks to Roula and Manolis for the perfectly prepared villa and the amazing white Callas Bouquet in the entrance.
When perfection becomes reality and hospitality so easy given it's hard to leave...!

The village’s beach has bot a sand and a shingle part, with some more popular and some quieter spots,

so you can take it as you please. In Kolymbari you can find all basic facilities, such as a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, bank, ATM’s, fuel station and a doctor’s office.
