My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in the beginning of October. It was absolutely the best part of our trip in Crete (and Santorini). Our spacious villa had an upstairs terrace with a hammock, a kitchen already equipped with three different types of coffee (Greek, espresso, and filter), not to mention homemade jams, olive oil, and, most importantly raki, an extra bedroom, a living room, and two bathrooms. But certainly one of the best things about our stay was our host, Kostas, who is easy-going, full of information and ready to help anyone out. He took us on a great tour of a nearby cave and told us a beautiful trail to walk down. He let me borrow a pair of hiking boots since my shoes were certainly not up for the job, and he even let me borrow one of his cameras when ours ran out of batteries. Just a very nice and knowledgeable guy. I'd happily return here and heartily recommend this place to others.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "Ville du Soleil”, is located in the South-East part of the island of Crete, and is comprised of 4 double-floored stone-built houses & 2 bungalows. The houses are built in a traditional Cretan style with wooden ceilings and furniture, with a panoramic view over the sea and mountains, 500 metres from the beach of Laggada. The visitors of the houses have only positive comments to provide, concerning the beauty of the place and the personal care for their comfortable vacations, as can be seen in all internet sites. Costas and Manuela, the owners of “Ville du Soleil” have excellent communicative skills in English. As a Greek national, I can communicate moderately in German and my wife is a native French speaker. The business is open from 1st of April until 30th of November, however, since my wife and I live permanently onsite, we could potentially offer accommodation possibilities throughout the year. The experience that is provided in our business can potentially be expanded to an insider’s look to the area around, by: - organising hiking and bicycling tours, - olive oil seminars (I am an olive oil judge, part of the International olive oil Jury of "Der Feinschmecker” magazine. - daily trips to Koufonissi and Chrissi island, - visiting archeological sites of the area, - as well as an insider’s look to the local cuisine. The houses do not provide a swimming pool, however, the sandy beaches around the area and the relaxing atmosphere provided by the absence of the pool, is one of the attractions to our guests in the past 5 years of operation. I will be looking forward to hearing from you in the near future, Best wishes from Makrygialos, Konstantinos Dritsas ... more less
