Our host Mary and the owner Pantelis were wonderfully friendly and generous. Our apartment there had stunning views of the surrounding countryside, was so homely and beautifully decorated with all the amenities we required. Breakfast every day is fresh local produce, Pantelis makes his own wine [VERY nice] and Mary kept us supplied with Raki and plenty of useful information for visiting the surrounding villages. Sellia is quiet and steeped in history and a truly wonderful spot to unwind and relax. Strofillia Villas is the perfect place to get away from city life and the people there so friendly and warm. So very peaceful and we can't wait to visit again.
