Chic and Comfortable Elessa Villa with spectacular views and landscape, beautifully furnished with private pool and garden near Gerani seaside village and Petres beach, and about 10 km from historic Rethymno city.

Elessa Villa is a three-bedroom vacation villa that looks out over scenery of exceptional charm and beauty, with an enchanting view of the Cretan sea and bays. It is an entire private villa with a garden and private pool which is aimed at providing you with a perfectly comfortable and relaxed stay. It stands in a privileged landscape with its sunny, exclusive position. Its geographical position, even though quiet, and secluded, allows you to easily travel to the beautiful little settlement of Gerani, the long sandy beaches of Petres, Kavros or Giorgioupolis and the medieval jowls of Rethymno and Chania. Elessa Villa is a beautiful villa that welcomes its guests with a very stylish relaxation area and key facilities: the swimming pool in the middle of the terrace, next to a beautiful, well-maintained garden can be used as an outdoor living and dining area for alfresco meals during the pleasant summer days. Indoors, the villa has two floors and can accommodate up to 6 guests: the ground floor is composed of a living room with a suite, satellite color TV and open fireplace, a dining area with an integrated open-plan kitchen, a bedroom with a double bed and balcony, a bathroom with a shower and a storage room. The first floor, reached by a staircase is composed of a second bedroom with a double bed and balcony, a third bedroom with two single beds and balcony and a bathroom with a bathtub. Framed by walls of natural stone, the outdoor space of Elessa Villa is perfect to spread out, relax and play games. It consists of a 40m2 swimming-pool with paddling-pool, a sun terrace with garden furniture, sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as a garden with lawns and ornamental plants. The BBQ facility of the villa is the ideal setting to enjoy grill lunch or dinner with friends and family. With its own plot and amazing panoramic views, Elessa Villa is inspired by the modern private living vacation model in order to provide the privacy of your own home, as a leisurely alternative to a day at the beach or sightseeing.


Elessa is part of Gerani Villas, four modern and spacious detached holiday homes with a private garden with swimming pool and sun terrace belongs to each villa. The property is set in Gerani, a quaint seaside village surrounded by orange, olive, cypress and pine trees. Just 5 km west, the bridge over Petres river marks the beginning of one of Crete's most beautiful sandy dream beaches. Gerani is a charming coastal village which is known for its long shoreline and the archaeologically impressive Gerani Cave, located on the outskirts of Rethymno town which boosts history and a rich culture. The broader area is perfect for guests who want to lounge on the secluded and spacious beach, hike the surrounding hills and enjoy the sleepy ambience of this traditional town. During the season, plenty of sports, watersports and dive centers are on offer on the beaches of Rethymnon (10 km), Kavros (13 km) and Giorgioupolis (19 km).

Charmante villa, calme et paisible, en pleine nature, propre et bien équipée ! Nous avons passé une très belle semaine avec nos 3 enfants. On reviendra avec plaisir dans cet endroit unique et dépaysant ! Merci

We stayed in Villa Elesa (Elessa) for 8 days. A very basic welcome. The villa is very well maintained and very clean. But the value for money was very disappointing, mainly for the following 2 reasons: - we expected a "sea view" as indicated in the description of the villa whereas "(very) partial sea view" corresponds to reality. A plantation of olive trees completely blocks the view from the gr... more

Super Unterkunft, die Betten / Matratzen sind jedoch etwas unangenehm.
