Luxury Villa Seli

Although only five minutes' walk out of the old village of Gerani, the narrow ascent to Villa Selli is stony and shrouded in olive groves, taking you back a hundred years to the traditional agrarian economy of Crete. The villa commands a hill-top position nestling among olive groves with spectacular views from three sides over the bay and breathtaking views of the surrounding unspoilt countryside , populated in turn with olive groves and orange orchards. Newly built but with traditional features and on the site of an old farmhouse, it is set apart in its own grounds of olive and orange trees , and is the perfect place to unwind. The beach is never far away in Crete and Gerani beach is a particularly peaceful and clean stretch of sandy shoreline only a 5-minute drive away. The beach is remarkably quiet even in the height of summer.

The traditional one small grocer shop in old Gerani is only a 5-minute stroll down the hill, providing basic provisions. It also has one 'kafeneo' (a traditional cafe where mostly old men sit and drink their strong Greek coffee and play backgammon, seemingly without a care in the world) and two traditional Byzantine . The nearest mini markets are in the new village of Gerani (there is an old and new village) which is a five-minute drive by car.
