Villa Philia is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Gavalochori in Crete.  Combining the warm atmosphere and feel of a private residence, it has the perfect setting from which you can enjoy the unobstructed view of the olive groves, the blue sky and the dazzling houses that create the enchanting backdrop of Crete.

The villa features stone walls, traditional arches, exposed wood beams and stone finishes which have been restored and retained. Together with the modern features and amenities the home provides a comfortable and warm environment for anyone requiring a permanent home. The property is in possession of an EOT licence and is ideal as a summer rental property as it is close to the beach and all amenities and spacious enough to accommodate large families.
