“Stunning villa! Highly recommended”
Enjoy this beautiful villa with stunning views and amazing furnishing. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. We enjoyed the infinity pool, outdoor bbq and patio. You will see the sunrise right from one of the upper bedrooms. The next time we are in Crete, we will stay at the same place. What a treat!
Not only is the house beautiful, comfortable and charming but the village in which it is located is a gem as well. The people are lovely, the history abundant and the food is fabulous. And if that is not enough for you the five star hotel down the road has a first rate spa. Perfection!
“Haven of tranquility”
Splendid villa in beautiful garden with nice pool and view. Catched some hot autumn sun in October. Had a great stay! The villa is perfect for discovering Western Crete. Located close to the village of Kolymbari, but you will need a car to get around. Facilities are modern and the villa is well kept and clean. Vegetable garden and the local welcome basket are delicious! The host family is very welcoming and helps guests to make the most of the stay at Villa Filira. Absolutely recommend!
“Beautilful Villa, 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, Marmalade, 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!
“Beautiful Villa with a personal touch”
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.
We have had a perfect holiday - redolent of beauty, substance - a delight from start to finish. Roula and her husband have created a haven which is as marvelous inside as out. Situated in an olive grove and with a garden featuring fresh limes, lemons, fruits, vegetables, as well as roses, hibiscus and jasmine, we often had to pinch ourselves to realize it was real. Indeed the garden, the pool, the views, the sea, the house itself created a backdrop of enchantment. The house itself is a joy. Immaculate, perfectly furnished - and with great good taste - stocked with anything anyone could possibly desire - what a joy. None of us wanted to leave. As for Roula and her family, their hospitality was extraordinary. Really beyond words. They were available to answer our questions, give us guidance and direction but only as we needed. Their hospitality defined the concept. Their graciousness, too. Roula's daughter, Joanna, met us at the airport and guided us brilliantly through the car rental process and then gave us a fascinating tour of the village of Kolymbari. We were smitten from the moment we landed with a sense of gladness and well-being. Not one bit surprising given our guides. Our thanks for a splendid holiday. We will be back! In the mean time, we carry with us a present memory of wonder and appreciation. I must add we loved the village of Kolymbari. Wonderful places to eat - esp. Argentina, which we went to several times - a fascinating and beautiful monastery, a lovely little beach; and it was within easy distance of all sorts of wonderful places to visit. I can't think of a village in this part of Crete where we would rather have been living. Roula, Manolis, Joanna, Gregory... our ebullient thanks, and as ever, Liz and Woody Littlefield - and Kate Littlefield
“It could not have been better!!!”
What a dream!! The house, the view, garden, pool, absolutely everything has exceeded our expectations. We have spent an unforgettable week at Villa Filira. Everything fits perfect and you feel the loving details of the owners. The warm and bright friendly welcome gave us immediately the feeling of beeing at home. Roula and Manolis have created a jewel at Crete, and we can only be thankful that the both of them share it with their guests. We say thank you again! Thank you for everything and we would love to come back any time but then for a longer stay!
The owner's hospitality is beyond expectations. We were greated with homemade Raki and fresh cucumbers from the garden, along with a basket of homemade olive oil, wine, raki, herb tea mix, honey and jams. The villa is beautiful, very clean with all the comforts of home. The outdoor space is private, pool sparkling, and gardens beautiful. The usable vegetable garden and fruit trees were a treat and added to many of our Cretan meals. The location gives you expansive views of coastline, olive trees and the village Kolympari below. We walked to this village for pastries, groceries and memorable meals in restaurants next to the sea. It was very hard to leave, and look forward to my next visit.
“Beautiful villa in a perfect location”
Last friday we came back from a one week stay in villa Filira in sunny Crete. What a splendid week we had! The villa exceeded our expectations. The whole villa smelled fresh and was very clean, we felt instantly at home. Every detail is taken care of. The beds are excellent, perfect showers with view (!) There are infact a lot of views in this beautiful house, even the bbq has a window with a gorgeous view! The gardens are meticulously taken care of and beautiful. The lemons from the lemon tree were amazing and we made drinks and lovely desserts with them. There is every opportunity to enjoy the sunny climate of greece. We admire the owners who put there soul in this place and felt privileged that we could enjoy this. This is a holiday destination we hopefuly return to soon.
“A lovely holiday experience in a truly magnificent villa”
We stayed at Villa Filira 3 weeks in October and had a really enjoyable stay, many thanks to the beautiful villa with all its lovely qualities and the great follow-up and hospitality we received from Roula, Manolis and anna. The check-in and check-out procedures were easy and smooth, from anna met us at the airport upon arrival til we left the gate three weeks later. The villa was spotless upon arrival - as it also was after the cleaning and laundry service twice a week during our stay. The villa's high qualities are sustained throughout - including the very nice interior decoration and amenities, the lovely terraces, the beautiful and well-kept garden and not at least the fantastic swimming pool. It was also fun and practical to be able to pick fresh tomatoes, peppers, salads, limes and grapes from the garden! The outdoor barbecue was frequently used in the evening. We travelled with small kids and the villa was very suitable for our needs. The pool was excellent with its separated child area and shades. Upon our request, Roula and Manolis kindly supplied many outdoor toys for the children, e.g. a play house, a slide, swings etc. The location was nice with lovely views of the sea and the small village of Kolymbari. Although not a very picturesque village, we learned to appreciate the charm of the day-to-day life in Kolymbari during our stay. Unfortunately the road was not very suitable for walking, so a car was needed to drive the 1-2 kilometers to the village. Chania was only 15-20 mins away, and the beautiful Falasarna beach about 30 mins. All in all the villa and the services exceeded our expectations and gave our stay a touch of luxury - we can highly recommend a stay at Villa Filira!
