Posted on Tuesday 18th December 2018 by Crete Escapes

We are delighted to introduce the latest villas to join our portfolio of fully licensed holiday rentals in Crete!

If you are still in the process of researching your villa holiday for 2019 then why not consider these excellent properties? 

Villa Selene

villa in creteVilla Selene is located in Agios Vassilis, which is between the traditional village of Gavalochori and the popular beach resort of Almyrida with its many wonderful restaurants, shops and amenities. As one of five detached properties set within a large, gated olive grove – this villa offers exceptional privacy and outdoor space with the closest property being over 200m away.

With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, Villa Selene is an ideal choice for two families or two couples travelling together. From just £945 per week, guests can enjoy an unusually large 9.5m long private pool, air conditioning, a BBQ and unlimited free internet. The owners of this property have taken great care to capture the essence of the “real Crete” by incorporating local stone and wood into the build of Villa Selene. Many of its interior fixtures and decorations have been lovingly handmade to add a stylish and boutique feel to the decor.

A large covered terrace overlooks the private pool which is safely set within a fenced and gated area. This is the perfect place to relax away from the heat of the midday sun and is comfortably furnished with a rattan sofa, table and chairs – as well as a BBQ. The private pool is easily accessed via the roman steps at the shallow end making it suitable for families with young children as well as serious length swimmers!

Warm balmy evenings can be enjoyed against the backdrop of a peaceful countryside setting, with the many fine restaurants of Almyrida being only a short drive away. Villa Selene successfully combines the peace and privacy of a large plot with the convenience of a fabulous location.  Because of this, guests can choose whether to enjoy a wonderful al fresco supper at the villa or savour some home cooked Cretan cuisine in a nearby taverna. 

Whether you are looking for a relaxed villa holiday away from the bustle of busy resorts or an excellent base from which to explore the North West Coast of Crete - Villa Selene is a fantastic choice for families, friends and couples.

Ideally situated for trips to Almyrida and Georgioupolis, Villa Ocean Breeze is also within easy distance of local tavernas and well stocked local shops which can be found in nearby Kefalas and Drapanos.  An impressive pool terrace overlooks the stunning private infinity pool which features a safe children’s section as well as roman steps leading into the shallow end – perfect for guests with young families or mobility issues.
