“Lovely villa in a perfect setting”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This villa is fantastic! Spacious, modern and luxurious. The outdoor area was lovely and we spent many hours just chilling, sunbathing and eating long lunches whilst enjoying the amazing view/ The gym was also very useful but the pool was a little cold!

The location is great, a few minutes from Kolymbari and around 30 minutes from Chania. You do need a car though if you want to visit beaches etc.

The owners were extremely helpful, meeting us at the airport and they organised a few things for us and gave us loads of information, especially about restaurants, which were all very good!

We will be back! :)

“Paradise”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in June 2015

I had vacationed at Villa Filira for three consecutive summers with a girlfriend, and it was a dream. The location is stunning, gardens beautiful, pool crystal clear. The villa is spotless, and has every comfort you could imagine--beautifully designed with meticulous care. It is luxury, without any interference. The warm breeze, sun and views are magical. The owners have become dear friends, and so when they decided to take on the challenge of building a new Villa-Ianira, I could not wait to return. I took my teenage son and daughter with me in mid June for 10 days. The new villa is set up in the same style with fews of the coastline above Kolymbari, and endless hills of Olive groves. It is in a more modern style, but VERY comfortable and welcoming. Everything is of the best quality, down to the olive oil they produce. This villa is larger than Filira, with a wine room and workout room. I could live there forever! My son broke his ankle in Chania, while I was on a boat returning from the Samaria Gorge. Roula and Minolis met my son at the hospital and stayed with him hours, until I could get there. They also helped us with the repair of a flat tire on our rental car! They are genuinely the nicest couple, and now friends for life. I cannot wait to visit again.

“Villa Ianira has Upped the Bar!”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have stayed with J&G for the past 4 years. In that time I have grown to love all things Crete. The anchor of my trips are J&G villas and their owners Roula and Manolis. In both their villas you are surrounded by luxury and natural beauty. Every detail has been attended to. Even a very well stocked wine cellar in Villa Ianira. There is also a lovely garden and the grounds and house are immaculate. You will have a hard time staying anywhere else once you've stayed with J&G!
