Ville du Soleil, the place to stay when visiting Crete. Never ever have I experienced more heart-felt hospitality than at Kosta’s house! The four Villas are set on a hill, surrounded by about 1000 olive trees, overlooking the Libyan Sea. Each evening the sun sets over the mountains, I was sitting on the terrace, each evening, marveling at the beauty of this island.
I fell in love with Rosa and Pussycat…two kittens, too cute, living with Kosta’s. Well, I would have loved to take one of them back home, but I think, they are better off there. I think I would be better off there too, 320 days of sun a year. Imagine! I think, here it is “au contraire”, 320 days of fog, rain, cold….
Oh and the beaches, simply wow! Who needs the Caribbean, Seychelles or Maldives if the Cretan beaches are equally splendid? A lot of them are very remote and none of them are ever over-crowded.
And on the way to Ville du Soleil, there is this family selling organic fruits and vegetables on the street…and Raki! They are so nice and generous, and the stuff they are selling is very tasty and freshly picked.
