Villa -
5 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Gerani, Chania Prefecture, Crete
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.

We visited Villa Seli in July 2016. We had a couple of criteria for choosing our villa, since we are travelling with our extended family for a summer vacation.

We stayed at Villa Seli in July 2016 and enjoyed our stay (with extended family, ages from 70 to 4 years old). We have been renting villas for years in various countries within Europe and even though Villa Seli is a nice place to spend your vacation, we were a bit disappointed after our stay. This mainly due to the...

We were looking for a suitable villa for a family Holiday in Crete, there was 11 of us, the youngest was 20 months and the oldest 70. I should begin this review with a quick word on the financial situation in Crete, if you are traveling there and have any worries about money, banks, shops running out of food or...

About the neighbourhood
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.
