About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Ville du Soleil is located on the South - East part of the island of Crete and can offer all comforts of a relaxing holiday residence in combination with the simplicity and generosity of the Cretan hospitality to its visitors.

The domain is comprised of four newly constructed Maisonettes (villas) and two Bungalows which are ready to host the ones who seek the pleasure of the Cretan wild beauty and relax in the view of the Mediterranean Sea.

The houses are built with the white regional stone, which matches perfectly with the surrounding landscape. The combination of the stone walls with the wooden furniture and the timber ceilings constitute an elegant decoration of the interiors which can provide at the same time coolness during the summer and warmth during winter.

Each of the four villas and the two bungalows can accommodate up to 5 people and consists of:

• two bedrooms with a balcony (off of the master bedroom on the upper floor for the villas, off the living room for the bungalows), with a panoramic view of the surrounding area and the beach,

• living room with fireplace

• fully equipped kitchen and a terrace area

• bathroom with shower, WC (and hair dryer)

• air condition in each room

• 32” LCD Flat Panel TV with DVD.

• Satellite panel with more than 700 channels

Ville du Soleil provides wireless connection to the Internet and bikes for the rides around the village, the nearby mountain and the beaches in the area.

A visit to Crete is always a challenge to the senses with the colours, the flavours and the aromas of the Cretan nature. “Ville du Soleil” invites you to explore the hidden natural treasures of the region, the beaches, the mountains, and the gorges, to taste the famous Cretan cuisine and to discover life in its tranquillity and simplicity.

The beach of Laggada, with its intact beauty, is only 7 minutes walk and offers its visitors the opportunity to enjoy a long sandy beach with the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Family Dritsas, the hosts of “Ville du Soleil” commit themselves to creating all conditions so that your stay in the island of Crete will worth remembering for a long time.

Great spot for a relaxed vacation week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the Ville Du Soleil appartments. Appartments are very comfortable and the view from the balcony is spectacular. Owners are very friendly and help with all questions. Also loved, that there are two bikes which can be borrowed. There are some nice trails in the area.

Beautiful and personalized service!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the beautiful vista offered by Ville du Soleil. The evening sunsets, view of the beaches of Makrygialos and the vivid night skies will not soon be forgotten. Costas and Manuela were the most gracious and friendly hosts, offering help in all things eastern crete from wonderful food choices to take out at 10pm to help coordinating transportation at a moments notice when unexpected events complicated our stay! They shared their home, their traditional raki and wonderful jam to add their own personal touches and we're happy to offer their help.

The location offers a unique vantage to the area beaches without the touristy crowds and a true flavor of the season and the island.

Highly recommend their Ville and would be blessed to find our way back someday!!

Delightful, comfortable and air conditioned.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 2 in the morning, and Kostas brought us a basket of breakfast things when we surfaced the following day.

Kostas made our holiday very enjoyable, offering advice on the best beaches - of which there are some really gorgeous ones near by - restaurants and even took us to a dance in the mountains.

The villa is neat, and well maintained, and with the air conditioning, very comfortable to sleep in during the hot weather.

We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in recommending the villa.
