The landscape west of Chania is a palette of silvers, greens, blues and terracotta, its timeless hilltops and olive groves set against the backdrop of the White Mountains. Trouli sits on the crest of one of these small hills and combines style and space with all the comforts of home. From the pool, terrace, barbecue and gardens, panoramic views encompass the peaceful countryside and the sea beyond, yet it is only a short drive to the lively coastal village of Stalos and its sandy beaches. The picturesque village of Upper Stalos with some excellent tavernas is even nearer.

Customer feedback

We had a relaxing holiday in beautiful Villa Trouli thanks to Stavros, Sophia and Ray. It has one of the nicest pools we have ever had in a villa and it is immaculately kept.
The Read Family – July 2018

We would thoroughly recommend a week at Villa Antiopi followed by a week at Villa Trouli for exploring Western Crete. Each villa is beautiful with fabulous views and they both have large pools and beautiful gardens for relaxing at any time of the day. Enjoy the swallows swooping low over the water in the evenings and the bats flying around at night. Magic!
Sarah & Martyn Pearce – July 2018

Villa Trouli is an absolute gem – a beautiful villa with expansive views over the surrounding olive groves to the sea in the north and to the White Mountains to the south. The owner (Stavros) was very welcoming. It’s an ideal base for exploring the mountains and beaches of western Crete, mixed with lazy days by the pool.
Alvin Wilby – June 2018

We had a lovely stay at Villa Trouli. Many thanks to Stavros for his warm welcome and generosity. We had a fabulous time exploring this beautiful part of Crete.
Jill, Mary Anne & Michele – April 2018

Another wonderful holiday in idyllic location. Perfect for exploring western Crete if you can bear to leave the beautiful pool and garden!
Mrs Lynch – September 2017

Beautiful villa with wonderful views, very helpful information pack. Owner lovely and helpful.We will book more Simpson Travel holidays!
Mr Crouch – September 2017

Villa and villa owner can't be faulted. Could you please transfer the villa to Italy for a change of country next year? Perfect three weeks just like the previous seven Simpson Travel holidays that we have had.
Mr Mitchell – August 2017

Villa and gardens were maintained to a very high standard in a lovely location with good access to places of interest. Ray was very helpful in guiding us to the most interesting places in the area which saved time and helped make a stress-free holiday. Thank you.
Mr Perry – May 2017

Holiday made easy.
Mr Harrison – August 2016

Will return for our seventh stay with Simpson Travel next year. There is no point changing when you have found perfection.
Mr Mitchell – July 2016



We book with Simpson Travel because we can rely on them to give us a worry-free holiday with very helpful staff. Flights and seating arranged in advance so no hassle at the airport with welcoming reps. Always try and book villa holidays with Simpson Travel.
Mrs Perry – July 2016

We had a truly lovely holiday. Villa Trouli is fabulous. It is in a great location and beautifully maintained. It has a wonderful garden and pool, with stunning 360 degree views of the high mountains behind and the sea to the front. The villa is comfortable and well equipped. The beach, tavernas, shops and Chania town are just a short drive away. We were thrilled by all of the wildlife we saw too – birds of prey, owls, bats, frogs, cicadas and lots of beautiful butterflies. Stavros, the owner, and Ray, the rep, were very friendly and helpful and made sure our holiday went perfectly. We were very sad to leave! We wouldn't hesitate to consider Villa Trouli and/or Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Thomas – August 2015

Simpson Travel came up trumps again. Amazing holiday and will be back next year!
Mr Mitchell – July 2015

Mr Jenkins – May 2015

All aspects of our holiday were dealt with in a professional and friendly manner. Our local rep, Ray, was very helpful and always available. Villa Trouli was wonderful and maintained to a high standard by Sophia and Stavros. We plan a return visit.
Mrs Clegg – September 2014

Crete has been a particular favourite holiday destination for my wife and me since 2001 and we have travelled with Simpson Travel since its inception. The standard of service provided by the company is superb and it is so refreshing to travel with an organisation that really values its clients and does absolutely everything to ensure we have a great holiday. Thank you!
Mr Jenkins – May 2014

Villa Trouli is a gem. Amazing pool, lovely views and stunning position. Definitely the best villa we have ever rented. Crete is a wonderful place to visit. The people are friendly, the food was excellent and we had a brilliant family holiday.
Mrs Green – August 2013

Villa Trouli is an exceptional villa – spacious, comfortable, in a great location with fantastic views and a really good pool. It was difficult to drag ourselves away to explore the island, and we always look forward to coming back.
Mr Halstead – July 2013

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

The soaring White Mountains, known in Greek as the Lefka Ori, are at the heart of West Crete’s dramatically beautiful landscape and the villages in their foothills offer traditional Cretan fare in glorious abundance – that’s if Chania’s twinkling harbour lights and waterfront dining don’t entice you first. Spring brings an abundance of flowers, turning hiking trails and gorges into welcome destinations for walkers, and in summer, the many beaches offer sun worshippers a choice of scenic locations to spread their towels.
