About the villa

Mediterranean gardens surround this airy house, with fruit trees and flowering shrubs, huge lawns and herb borders, a gorgeous pool with a ‘floating’ gazebo and Jacuzzi seats, and a children’s pool and toddlers’ play area. With exquisite views of the mountains and the Med, and automatic night lighting around the pool and gardens, facilities for outdoor living include a rustic dining pergola; a barbecue corner in the shade of a broad-leafed mulberry tree; and a covered veranda hemming the house, stylishly furnished for dining and relaxing, with bags of cushions piled on built-in seating. Indoor design is a contemporary version of country chic, with décor in alabaster and ochre, high ceilings with exposed rafters, and flooring in clay tiles and polished oak. 

Replete with modern appliances, the kitchen also has a traditional wood oven, and is open plan to the dining room and elegantly informal sitting room. Each of the villa’s three bedrooms has air conditioning, a TV and private terrace or balcony, the king-size master suite enjoying its own romantic bathroom. And Villa Felicita is within 2km of shops, eateries and the beach at Kolymvari village.

About the area

Western Crete

Average weather

When it comes to sheer character and beauty, there are many who consider Crete to be a true Grecian gem. It’s the country’s largest island with contrasting landscapes, a distinct culture and an atmosphere immersed in charm. It also offers a treasure trove of riches from villages steeped in tradition, the landmark White Mountains, secluded coves and architecture from the pages of history through to delightful coastal areas and lively resorts. It is this western part some say is the most enticing; it’s where you’ll find enchanting towns, a good range of beaches and pockets of local life untouched by the passage of time
