Villa del Sole is located in the rocky and wild west coast of Akrotiri Cape, just 14km away from the picturesque city of Chania and 1.5km away from the sandy beach. It is built 25m from the sea surface and offers a breathtaking view of the sea, the north coast of Chania Prefecture and the imposing mountain range of Lefka Ori. As the sun falls the sky is painted red and the city lights begin to turn on, offering a magnificent view.

On the 50000sq.m. fenced and coastal property where the villa is built there are more than 600 palm trees, a vineyard and melon patches. If you stroll in the garden you will see the farm animals. You can ask the owner to give you some fresh eggs from the chickens. A downhill road leads to the sea, where a private, smooth boat ramp is fount. The sea is deep but the access to it is very easy. Around the 40sq.m pool there are sunbeds and next to the pool there is a barbecue. A basketball court is also found in the property.

Villa del Sole is a three storey building of 300sq.m. The main entrance door opens to the middle floor and to an L shape cosy area that consists of the sitting and the formal dining area. The fully equipped kitchen is separated from the dining area by a bar. The huge French doors offer an amazing view from every point of this area. A wc is also found on the same floor. Three of the five bedrooms of the villa are found on the upper floor - one double and two twin. All bedrooms have balconies and the double one has an ensuite bathroom. One more bathroom, a small sitting area and an utilities room complete this floor.

The lower floor of the villa comprises of a spacious living room with the sitting area and a second dining set, one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom.

Covid-19 policy update

On Monday 13/04/2020, Greek Government Gazette published a new regulation (ΦΕΚ 84/Α/13-4-2020, Article 70) to help Greek tourism businesses (hotels and travel agencies) to avoid bankruptcy, due to the unprecedented number of cancellations caused by the pandemic.

The regulation allows these businesses to reimburse customers with 18-month vouchers instead of cash refunds, if these businesses are obliged, based on their policy, to refund any amount that the customers have paid in advanced. The regulation is valid for cancellations made between 25/02/2020 to 30/09/2020.

Holidaymakers will not lose their money and will have the chance to use their booking towards another holiday at a future date with the same business. If, for any reason, customers will not use the voucher within 18 months, businesses will be required to refund the initial amount of the bookings to the customers.

  • Fantastic

    Period of Stay: Jul 2019
    Let’s start with booking process which was easy and excellent.
    Spent two weeks in Chania with a group of 8 of us and our second week was spent here at Villa Del Sole. Upon arriving at Villa you will enter into a large gated area with 1 other Villa that is also rented out. When we pulled up to Villa we were all very excited and impressed. It sits up on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean and the views and sunsets are amazing. It has a large pool area with beautiful landscape around it that you just don’t wanna leave.

    The Villa is modern and clean.AC throughout the house which is really not needed in living areas if you open sliding doors to balconies and a few windows.The breezes are amazing.House is well equipped with all you need.There is a paved road that leads down to ocean where you can enjoy the beautiful blue water.

    There are beaches and tavernas all very close by.Would definitely suggest a car. Old Chania Town is about a 30 minute ride and is beautiful for shopping and eating.

    I have absolutely nothing negative to post about this Gem. We have stayed at many different Villa s throughout Greece and this ranks right up there.Highly recommend.Vila Del Sole thanks for the memories.
  • Awesome villa, breathtaking views

    Period of Stay: Aug 2018
    We rented the villa for a week in August 18. We were 2 families sharing the house. Pool fab, villa beautiful but the view...breathtaking! The most amazing view I have ever seen by day and beautiful stars by night. We never got bored of the scenery, even the kids got off the Wi-fi to appreciate it.
  • Absolutely incredible

    Period of Stay: Aug 2018
    This villa was absolutely incredible! It gave all that was promised and more. After a major let down on our planned holiday we well and truly landed on our feet when we were offered the rent of Villa Del Sole. The owner met us and was very welcoming and told us that we would have a view of the sunsets. What he neglected to say was how spectacular the sunsets were The villa itself had everything we needed.
  • Villa del Sole gorgeous but could be even better

    Period of Stay: Jun 2018
    Eight of us (all adults) just returned from a absolutely fabulous week at Villa del Sole. The villa is huge, was in immaculate condition and had beautiful furnishings if a little sparce. We loved the relatively isolated location of the villa (no problem with cars) and the views and sunsets are to die for. To be able to walk down from the villa and swim in the sea was an added bonus. The pool was glorious and by luck for early June I think, a lovely temperature. It was serviced every morning and was beautifully clean. To have made our stay 100% perfect I have the following comments: There was only one sunshade by the pool. Not enough! To access protection from the sun we had to move the very heavy tables that were positioned under some shade next to the barbecue so we could put some sun beds there. Two of our group of four couples had bedrooms that had no mirrors and no tables to put things on. This was not satisfactory at all and spoilt the stay for those two couples. Such a shame as so easily rectified.

    The fifth bedroom which we didn't use similarly had no tables or mirrors either. Only two of the five bedrooms have mirrors and enough practical furniture. In all the bedrooms there is loads of wardrobe space. We noticed a leak underneath the pool platform in the corner which dripped constantly onto the rock beneath and wondered if this contributed to the mosquito problem that we experienced at the villa. The dishwasher bottom shelf was irritating as both the back and front wheels constantly fell off the rollers. The dishwasher needs replacing or serious repair! It was such a shame that with such a magnificent pool table in the downstairs living area it couldn't be used satisfactorily for some shots because it was positioned too close to the wall, also that there was no chalk. Both points a considerable spoiler for keen pool players. I hope the owner of Villa del Sole notes the above. I don't want to sound too critical, the villa was gorgeous and we did have a lovely time, but if these points above were addressed it would be perfect.
  • Breathtaking

    Period of Stay: Apr 2017
    Wonderful stay at the end of april and beginning of may. Beautiful weather in a beautiful house.

    The view is really amazing. The sea is so clear, a bit chilly but that's normal in april, may.

    Chania is a beautiful place where you can choose from many restaurants. Tersanas beach, very nice and also a lovely restaurant near the water. Stavros is also very nice with a supermarket and several restaurants. Nearby there are enough supermarkets. The house is well equipped.

    We've had a great time and like to come back someday.
  • Great villa, beautiful sunsets!

    Period of Stay: Sep 2016
    Our group of ten adults spent a week in this beautiful villa in September. All facilities were in good contition, the view from villa was spectacular! Specially in the evening when the sun was setting down.

    Only slight minus was the bit remote location of the villa, but then again if you want privacy this place is berfect for you. Taxi to/from Chania central costed about 25 euros/ one way, so that wasn't too bad either. Rental car is recomendable if you rent this villa.

    I would definitelly recomend this villa!!
  • Vacances parfaites à la Villa des Sole

    Period of Stay: Jul 2016
    Nous avons passé 2 semaines merveilleuses à  la Villa del Sole début juillet 2016. Tout est parfaitement conforme au descriptif et la réalité est encore plus belle que les photos. Les prestations sont de très grande qualité et l'accueil est excellent.

    Nous avons apprécié le calme de la propriété, l'accès direct à  la mer juste au bout du petit chemin qui passe sous la maison, les magnifiques couchés de soleil depuis la terrasse, la piscine qui est très agréable, le coin barbecue et toute la décoration design, moderne et raffinée de la maison.

    Le ménage est fait 2 fois par semaine, c'est très appréciable.

    Par contre, une voiture est nécessaire car les commerces sont un peu éloignés. Ce furent peut-être nos plus belles vacances, nous en gardons un merveilleux souvenir et espérons revenir en Crète, où nous avons trouvé 100% de soleil, une mer superbe et chaude, des randonnées inoubliables et des personnes très accueillantes.

    Merci également à  l'agence Chania Rentals avec laquelle nous avons eu une relation de confiance parfaite. Nous les recommandons vivement ainsi que la Villa del Sole.
  • Great place!

    Period of Stay: Mar 2015
    we had a great time at Villa de Sol, very spacious, the owners were very nice and helpful, very clean, the location high above the sea with a beautiful view to the white mountains was amazing. I can highly recommend this place.
  • villa del sole

    Period of Stay: Aug 2015
    what can i say, the villa is fantastic,the views from inside and outside are spectacular.

    we were a party of 10 and there is bags of space around the large pool,and inside the villa.Its decorations and fittings are of a very high standard,the pool and full size pool table kept us happy all day long.

    A car is required if you want to get out and about,but to be honest we ate al fresco nearly every day.

    I have stayed in a few villas over the years,and i can honestly say this was the best
  • August 2014

    Period of Stay: Aug 2014
    The location and atmosphere at Villa Del Sole is amazing. Evenings BBQ'ing as the sun set across Chania Bay are memories we will all treasure. All the party were able to relax and unwind - plenty of space both inside and out to be alone if required and plenty of space to enjoy each other's company. The owners were very helpful and made some excellent restaurant recommendations in Chania. Showers/baths a little problematic at times - maybe some operator error but a simple walk in shower would have been appreciated. Highlights of the holiday apart from the Villa - Samaria Gorge, Scuba Diving, Snorkelling from the villa's boat ramp and Chania's Market first thing to purchase some quality produce. A memorable holiday - the Cretian people are wonderful; so friendly and welcoming. Many thanks for a lovely break.
  • Great vacation

    Period of Stay: Jun 2014
    This is a magical place on the island of Apollo. The crystal clear waters, the serenity and purity of the mountains, the fine architecture and interior design of the villa itself all add up to an idyllic experience. Management team was responsive. All you need is a car to get there and get around a bit. Otherwise it is an oasis of beauty away from the world.
  • Dream View, Dream Villa

    Period of Stay: Apr 2014
    We were absolutely happy with the villa. Nothing was missing. It was the perfect vacation. The owner is also very nice.
  • Great house, great welcome

    Period of Stay: Aug 2013
    The house is perfect. The pool is great, the view is beautiful and the BBQ is huge ! We had a wonderful time in the house. And above all, the owner and its entire family was very welcoming and nice too us. Everything was handled and simple, we just had to chill out.
  • A Great Stay

    Period of Stay: Jul 2013
    Our week at the Villa del Sole has to rank as one of the most relaxed holidays we've had yet. The villa itself is fantastic, well furnished and cool as all room have efficient AC if required. The only criticism we have is that the bathrooms are a little tired, there are no showers and the water pressure is very low, especially in the top bathrooms. However, these are only minor issues really. A car is a must as there are no shops or attractions within walk-able distance and be prepared to do a shop for groceries on the first day as no basics are provided. The owner 'Konstantinos' was also brilliant and met us from the car-hire pickup at a very unsociable hour to ensure we found the Villa quickly (only 15 mins from airport). He also provided much help through the week and made sure we were OK on a number of occasions. For families with children it is highly recommended. The pool is in lovely condition and great snorkeling can be found off the boat ramp at the bottom of the garden All in all a great trip.
  • Amazing villa!

    Period of Stay: Jun 2013
    Me and my girl friends stayed at Villa del Sole for our graduation holiday and we couldn't have had a better time! The villa itself is amazing, nicely decorated and clean, not to mention the incredible views and scenery. The owner Stelios was also very friendly and helpful and organised our transport from the villa into Chania as we did not have a car. I couldn't recommend Villa del Sole more!
  • magnifisant vieuws

    Period of Stay: Apr 2013
    The villa was unbelievable fantastic, even better than the pictures, very luxurious feeling in every room and at the pool, great having two livings, with both magnefisant vieuws and a large and sunny terras. Very good maintenance for both the house and de surroundings. A car is absolutely nessecary for trips, beachvisit and shopping for food. For dinner pick a local restaurant, good food an very friendly and kind people! We had a fantastic week.
  • Dont believe the photos! - the place is even more beautiful when you see it !

    Period of Stay: Oct 2012
    Beautiful secluded property with a great villa as promised, sitting on a cliff with the best view of the most beautiful area in Crete, WHAT CAN YOU ASK MORE? me and my friends had a wonderful time. We miss it deeply..
  • Very nice
