The villa is built in the middle of a covered with grass private property of 2400 sq.m. The garden is surrounded by high trees, ensuring the privacy of the tenants. At the back yard there is the 40 sq.m pool with sunbeds and 2 parasols around it for relaxation in the shade. At the same side of the garden there are a barbecue and stone built benches where you can enjoy tasty meals. Moreover, there is a wooden outdoor dining set in a covered area outside the kitchen and outdoor furniture sets on the balcony of the first floor and at the back and front yards.
Stella Villa is a two floor building. The entrance leads to the spacious sitting/dining area with the fireplace. The separate kitchen is fully equipped and has a round dining table for 6 persons. On the same floor there are a cosy twin bedroom and a large bathroom. On the first floor there are two more bedrooms, one twin and one double and a bathroom. Both bedrooms have balconies overlooking the pool.
Stella Villa is located in the historic, coastal village of Maleme, 600m from the beach and the blue Cretan Sea. The area is peaceful, however in walking distance from the beach of Maleme with the taverns, the bars and the souvenir shops. West Crete is the side of the island where some of the most renowned beaches of Greece are found; Falassarna, Elafonisi, Paleochora. As you drive along the mountain roads you will meet many small traditional taverns with home-made Cretan products.

We have never been to Crete before let alone rented our our villa.
All our questions were timely answered and the villa was perfect. The process of reserving was seamless and everything was great.
The house is as the photographs shows. Just take some beach towels (pool and bath towels are provided) the owners were lovely and showed us around - welcome pack of food and drink was great too.
I would advise to take some DVDs for evenings if you have children in bed early as the TV choices are all Greek.
The pool is fantastic and you can properly swim in it.
It is a minute walk to bars, restaurants, shops and the beach. 40 minutes to the airport.
The villa is not overlooked so you can completely escape.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Great villa- very clean and loads of space. Very large pool with lots of shade and some very friendly cats and kittens from next door- although I am sure that they would make themselves scarce if you don't like cats. It's also a short walk to the beach and all the restaurants.
The only small negatives are no aircon or fan in the living room, so this is hot at night, although the bedrooms have great aircon. Also, there is no dust pan for the barbeque so we made our own! Mattresses are quite hard, too, but we all still slept well. The DVD also only played about 1/3 of our DVDs.
Overall, a fabulous place to stay and we can highly recommend the villa.
16 km west of Chania, in this very fertile corner of Crete, Maleme was famously the setting for the epic Battle of Crete in the last world war. Today the countryside is dominated by sweet smelling orange groves and whispering plantations of tall bamboo which fringe the mile upon mile of almost deserted sandy and pebbly beaches. Maleme has a good choice of tavernas, and a fairly large supermarket and although the village has undoubtedly grown in recent years, it still retains a pleasingly unsophisticated air and if you explore a little, you'll soon find the local baker and a real Greek butcher's shop. For a little more action the bustling village of Platanias is just less than 4km away but if you prefer a slower pace of life and a rather more tranquil atmosphere, there are several sleepy villages located just inland.
