Thanks to strict planning regulations, it is not usually possible to build villas directly on the beach in Crete. However, the land on which these magnificent villas stand was gifted to a group of Cretan civilians in recognition of their efforts during WWII. With this land came building rights by the seashore, and the opportunity to create possibly the best placed properties on the island.
The Perseus Villa are situated directly on Rapaniana Beach, just a short drive from Kolymbari, a small authentic fishing village with fish restaurants and the fortified monastery of Panagia Odigitria.
The Perseus has an exceptional outside area with a rectangular swimming pool and spacious terraces with elegant sunbeds. Interiors are stylish and practical, with the thoughtful addition of a spacious playroom where little ones can escape to in the heat of the day. There is a summer kitchen and barbecue for alfresco dining and for relaxation all day and into the warm, starry nights there are funky beachside stone sofas taking full advantage of the spectacular location.
Fifteen minutes away is the town of Kissamos, from where you can take a boat trip to the incredible Gramvousa and Balos Lagoon. Whilst less than half an hour away is the famous Falassarna Beach, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and renowned for its variety of flora and fauna.

We've had a fantastic stay here at the Perseus House. The location cannot be beaten and it's been fabulous waking up to the sunshine and sound of the waves. Eleni & George have been wonderful hosts - friendly & very helpful. Eleni's hospitality has been exceptional, every day new home-made treats delivered with a smile and a chat. We've loved our time here at the villa & particularly enjoyed the pool & using the BBQ. Alba has been a first class rep - always on hand to help & full of wonderful suggestions. We will definitely return to Crete & the Perseus House as we've had such a fabulous holiday.
As soon as we turned left off the coast road and came down the hill and spotted the four beautiful villas up against the coast we knew that we'd picked a brilliant place for our holiday, and when we were shown round by George we realised how truly lovely the Perseus House is. It is truly a luxury villa, spotlessly clean and beautifully positioned. The villa was too lovely for us to want to leave it very often but we have ventured out to many local tavernas, the highlights being Palio Arhontiko and Argentina (try the fish soup, it’s amazing). Maria has been a fabulous Rep, full of great recommendations for places to go. Eleni & George are fabulous hosts who make you feel very welcome without intruding. Eleni's homemade treats were a lovely bonus in the mornings, thank you!
Another amazing holiday! We have now come back to the Perseus House for three years and it really is a true sanctuary. Eleni & George are simply amazing hosts and it almost feels like they are now family. The villa is just perfect and always immaculate, as is the pool and surrounding area. We have been so well looked after it makes it feel even worse leaving! We truly love it here - it is a piece of heaven on earth! Alba, as always, has been great and is always more than happy to help with any questions or requests and has great recommendations on everything depending on what sort of holiday you are looking for. Alba - you are a star! Thank you so much from us all!
What an amazing place!!! We absolutely loved the house, which had everything we could have imagined. The location and the magnificent view of the water was such a magnificent highlight. We are all so grateful for the wonderful hospitality of our hosts who did everything imaginable to make us feel very welcome. The daily treats and surprises were just amazing and very unexpected - Elani you are an amazing cook and a great hostess. Thanks to Maria from Premier Holiday Booking for giving us such wonderful suggestions for bars, restaurants and tavernas. We went to Palio Arhontiko twice - fabulous food!! Strata in Chania was fantastic - big servings!! The fish restaurant at the little marina at Kissamos was fantastic. Finally Anemomylos Windmill is very unassuming but a real find!! We had a fantastic holiday and we will definitely be back!!
We love the villa, lovely swimming pool and stunning views! It is a beautiful place and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you to Maria for being an amazing host and bringing us delicious daily treats! Overall, we loved our holiday here. The villa is spacious and clean, the pool was amazing to swim in on a hot day.
