Mrs. Eleanna was a really nice host. We arrived late and she walked extra mile to accomodate us. View from Villa Michalis is spectacular (pictures don't lie). The villa itself is not of a big size but it's modern and have everything you need. It is located within walking distance from the quite small village on the slope of the mountain. Due to the nature of the location be prepared to drive narrow streets of the village and mountain roads on the way to the villa and around. There are at least 3 locations to eat and a mini market in the village. You can also drive 10 mins down the mountain to Plakias where you have plenty selection of everything. It can get REALLY windy at the villa but that's of course beyound host's control. I would reccomend this location if you are looking for something away from the hype of a city and want to spend a quite and peaceful vacation.

Great view! The photos don't lie. The house is well kept, the pool gets cleaned every day, trash is removed. The host was always reachable and helpful. There are nice tavernas in the village. If you go during the summer months, beware of the north wind, it can get very stormy up there.

Villa Michalis has the most amazing stunning views. It really does make you want to just look every moment. Take binoculars if just to look at the moon and stars. The outdoor space is great and the pool allows for 2 people to splash around. We did use the bbq with meat from the butcher in Plakias. Sellia is an is idyllic charming small village. The store is 10 min walk and everything we needed. Two really good restaurants in the village so you can walk home. Plakias is a super town of everything you need and a great beach. Souda Beach is 10 mins and wonderful. A car is advisable an will allow you to get to beaches and gorges. The villa is a functional clean space. August has high winds and the windows are double glazed.

Fantastic views, clean airy house within an easy walk of a small shop and restaurants (really good). Cleaners and a pool man came regularly, we felt very spoilt. Plakias beach is about 4km away down a steep hill so not really walkable in the heat of the summer or with small children, I would definitely recommend a car. There are some lovely beaches to the East of Plakias which are good for snorkelling. Some of the driving is a bit hairy! if you are on the drop side including the little road to the villa. If you go slowly it is fine and the views spectacular. The agent, owner, cleaners and pool man were all lovely and so helpful, the owner waiting up until 2am to welcome us to the villa ( well beyond the call of duty )! We went in July which is known for it's winds, although sometimes annoying on the whole it was lovely to have the breeze making it feel less hot but watch you don't burn. We would definitely stay in this villa again.

Our host Valia could not have been more helpful, any query answered or issue (Internet) resolved straight away. Location simply stunning up on the mountain side overlooking the sea and Plakias bay - wow! Villa spotless, bedsheets & towels changed twice a week, pool cleaned pretty much every day. Really peaceful location yet easy walk to little village Sellia with great restaurants. Family of five with three teenage kids all very happy, that is an achievement! In the evenings sit by the pool watch the sun set and the moon rise and listen to the sound of the sheep bells on the mountainside. Bliss!

A great stay in a great location. The Villa is new and nestled between the quiet Village of Sellia and the beautiful beaches in Plakias - both are great locations for a relaxing vacation away from the main tourist spots. The Villa itself is well appointed, clean and has views that are simply amazing! Valia is also great to work with, always willing to help with any needs. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of main tourist hot spots but still close to beautiful beaches then this Villa is definitely worth a visit.
