Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Chania - J&G Villas

Luxury villas in NW Crete, hospitality, modern elegance

The J&G Villas complex consists of two luxurious villas, conveniently located in the picturesque village of Kolymvari in NW Crete, 22 km from the historical town of Chania and a short drive from the coast. Since the area is not a mass tourism destination, it has retained its original character and offers a unique combination of local, traditional and modern. Visitors may want to take the opportunity to meet locals, taste fresh seasonal products and regional specialties, walk along the seaside promenade and dine at family-run restaurants and taverns. There are numerous golden sand, crystal clear beaches with both popular and quieter spots to choose from, depending on your mood. The area also boasts many historical and archaeological sites, monasteries and museums.

The village of Kolymvari has all necessary facilities, including supermarkets, bakeries, a post-office, bank and ATM machines, petrol stations and a doctor's office.

There is frequent bus service to Chania and other towns as well as a convenient taxi stand. If you enjoy late nights out or shopping, the lively resort of Platanias is just a 10-minute drive away, while cosmopolitan Chania and its wider variety of shopping and entertainment is just 20 minutes away.

The two villas, “Villa Filira” and its brand new sister “Villa Ianira”, enjoy a privileged hillside position overlooking Kolymvari Bay. They are absolutely independent of each other, with the former having been built on a spacious 5000 m² property and the later on a 3000 m² plot. Each of them is entirely fenced in, boasts its own infinity pool and is surrounded by lush olive groves and beautiful gardens. A children’s play area can be added upon request for our young guests. The villas’ architecture, color schemes, decoration and furnishings have taken their natural setting into account in order to provide guests looking for privacy and seclusion with the peace and serenity they desire. The villas’ oversized glass balcony doors and bay windows allow sunlight to flood in while opening onto verandas and patios and providing breath-taking panoramic views of the sea and mountains.

The villas have been outfitted with comfortable, high quality furnishings which are at once cozy and elegant. Special attention has been paid to every detail, including equipping the properties with top-quality, state-of-the-art modern conveniences such as wireless internet, flat screen Led TVs, music systems, alarms, cameras as well as air-conditioning in all rooms.

J&G Villas boast unique aesthetics with an authentic Cretan feel combined with a wide variety of services from which to choose.

At J&G Villas, our aim is to ensure that your highest expectations are not only met, but surpassed during your stay with us.

About Roula Simantiraki

Hello there, my name is Roula Simantiraki, and my husband Manolis and I would like to introduce you to J&G Villas and welcome you to our island. We are both natives of beautiful Crete and want your experience here to reflect the pride that we feel for the natural splendor and historical magnificence of this land. We lovingly constructed our villas in a style that fits in with the gorgeous landscape we are so lucky to have surrounding the properties, and furnished and decorated them in an understatedly elegant manner befitting of the island’s traditional aesthetic. We invite you to come and stay in these luxurious villas for unforgettable holidays on the majestic island of Crete!

Why Roula Simantiraki chose Chania

Located along the sun-drenched northwest coast of the island of Crete, the villa is nestled between the sea and mountains and boasts proximity to beaches, historical towns and spectacular mountain trails and gorges. Elegant decor, luxurious amenities, top-notch services and stunning private grounds are but a few of the reasons to choose the Villa Filira for your holiday in Crete.

What makes this villa unique

From the outset, the concept behind the villa was to create a vacation home of uniquely high standards with elegant, modern aesthetics and contemporary conveniences, and as such no expense was spared in its construction, outfitting or decor. Understated elegance meets natural, environmentally-conscious beauty in this home away from home, whose owners welcome guests as extended family members. Visitors are encouraged to take full advantage of the amenities and conveniences available, including sourcing the freshest of natural ingredients for gourmet meals from the organic vegetable garden and myriad of fruit trees, dipping in or lounging by the exquisite infinity pool or relaxing on the cozy verandas for soothing evenings under the Mediterranean stars.

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.

Highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, with a stunning view on mountains and see. Very nicely decorated, relaxing, well equipped, suitable fro children. Oranges, lemons, olive tree in the garden. Pool is not heated, making it more decorative than useful in Spring, but must be perfect during the hot summers of Crete. Roula is very responsive and has been essential in recommending us unique places (4x4 tours in the White mountains, Organic Olive factory, restaurants, beaches...)! Nicely located to visit West Crete ("Chania Region"). Car is essential.

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 .

J&G Villas are located near Kolymvari, a small village in western Crete nestled between the sea and cliffs, 22 km from the bustling historical town of Chania. As the area in not a mass tourism destination, it still retains its original character and offers a good taste of the local lifestyle. You can take advantage of the opportunity to socialize with the locals, taste fresh seasonal products and regional specialIties, walk along the seaside promenade and dine at family-run restaurants and taverns. The village beach, with some spots being more popular and others quieter, has both sandy and pebbly areas for all preferences and moods. In Kolymvari you can find all necessary conveniences, including supermarkets, bakeries, a post-office, bank and ATM machines, petrol stations and a doctor's office. There is frequent bus service to Chania, as well as a taxi stand. If you enjoy late nights out or a bit of shopping, the lively resort of Platanias is just a 10-minute drive away, while cosmopolitan Chania has an even wider variety of entertainment options.

Distances from the villas:

Kolymvari village : 1.5 km

Nearest beach : 2 km

Chania town: 23 km

Souda Port : 24 km

Chania Airport : 38 km

Heraklion Airport : 150 km

The nearest airport is Chania International Airport, with many daily flights to/from Athens and a number of charter flights to/from European airports. Driving time to the villa is approximately 40 minutes. Heraklion International Airport is roughly 2 hours away and has an even larger network of direct international charter flights.

J&G Villas are an ideal starting point for exploring western Crete and its gorgeous mountain ranges, historical sites and monuments, coastal towns and stunning beaches. Chania town, a 20-minute drive from the villa, is replete with colourful neighbourhoods to wander through and impressive monuments to visit, including the picturesque Venetian port and its lighthouse, the Archaeological Museum and the town’s lively covered market. Those wanting to go behind the scenes can explore spots that are still off the beaten track, with cultural influences that have given Chania its supremely unique character.

Leaving the coast behind and taking inland roads, there is an impressive variation of mountain scenery, with the White Mountains and their famed Samaria Gorge being the most notable. The relaxing coastal resorts of the south and west will offer you a taste of the vast blue sea, with golden beaches and crystal clear waters. Near the villa, you will find the picture-perfect beaches of Falasarna and Balos that are not to be missed.

Our concierge will be pleased to assist with suggestions for places to visit, tours, shops and restaurants.
