Villa Selene (meaning 'moon' in Greek).

A single storey (bungalow) villa -- no stairs!

It features a fabulous 9 x 4 m pool with walk down steps. The shallow end is 1.2 metres, the deep end is 1.6 metres.

Sun is happening all day long on the terrace.

Patio and pergola at Selene.

This photo was taken last year in 2010 so does not show the new covering over the pergola which provides lots of shade.

Outside dining area. Please excuse the distortion on this photo as it is a composite of several photos stitched together.

The windows really are straight, not wobbly!

There are 8 sun loungers for each pool so plenty of space to stretch out and relax. The pool is in full sun most of the day and has a usual summertime temperature of 28 degrees centigrade.

Rear view of Villa Selene.

In the foreground is one of our baby olive trees, planted as part of our tree replacement programme to repolulate the olive grove after our builders cut down rather more trees than necessary.

One of the Selene bedrooms. Double doors to the right open onto the patio.

All bedrooms are of course airconditioned, and have ceiling fans if you prefer natural ventillation.

Modern bathroom suite (there are two!).

Simple and practical, with Northern European plumbing! All paper goes down the loo, not in a bin which is the common Greek method.

Selene has fastastic views of the White Mountains.

This is the front entrance - which for 2011 has a porch over the front door.

Our own villa Fos (which we do not rent out) is to the far left of the photo. There is a good 30m between the houses and there is a screen of olive trees between the two - far more space than with most other holiday villas in Crete.

All bedrooms have double door access to the patio area.
