clean, well equipped and convenient Villa

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the smooth, professional and accurate organisation by Valia Kokkinou. When there were any questions, Valia responded immediately, and we always felt very welcome. Also Andreas and his wife who regularly took care of the cleaning and the pool service did a great job. We enjoyed our stay in Villa Julie, from the facilities (from our point of view) there is nothing left to be desired. Air condition, water, electricity, bathroom installations etc. worked perfectly, and WiFi connection was great. Unfortunately the terrace of Villa Julie doesn't allow views on Plakias bay, but of course there is sea- and mountain-view.

Maybe two things to be mentioned: 1.) Sometimes there was some kind of unpleasant smell apparently coming from the drain in the lower bathroom (although we never used it).

2.) The floodlight from the upper Villa Despina is a bit annoying, because it directly flashes down on balcony and terrace of Villa Julie. Unfortunately it was not possible to turn it off.

Villa Julie is located in the traditional village of Selia, situated on the south coast of Rethymno, where guests can find many necessities they need such as tavernas and a bakery within 2 minutes walking distance.

The world famous beach of Plakias and the homonym sea front village, can be reached within 9 minutes by car. The sandy beach is very well organised, providing sun beds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers, etc. The rocks surrounding the beach are ideal for fishing and snorkelling, as well. The road along the beach is also ideal for walking or cycling. Along the main road of the village there are several supermarkets, bakeries, ATM machines, post office, a doctor’s as well as a dentist’s office, restaurants, tavernas, a pastry shop, a bakery, cafes and beach bars while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars and other shops offer a very wide range of products, including local and traditional goods.

The long, sandy beach of Souda, which is just a short drive from the villa, 10 minutes, is well organised with sun beds and umbrellas.

Also the well known beaches of Schinaria, Ammoudaki and Damnoni which are definitely considered as the beauty of the south cost, are close and can be reached within a 10 minutes drive.

Sea waters are warm in July and August, but be prepared to bathe in Saharan-style heat and the ‘meltémi’, the northerly wind which regularly blasts beaches. On the other hand the winds also drive away the mosquitoes and break through that solid wall of summer heat. These breezes are known to locals by individual names, depending on where they come from, how long they stay, and what gifts they bring with them.
