This stunning new complex of 9 luxurious, individually designed villas by renowned designer Olyvia Siskou, all with private pools, hangs over the hillside overlooking Mirabello Gulf, between Elounda and Aghios Nikolaos. Each villa has its own style of interior décor and furnishing but the extremely high standard of accommodation is universal to all.
The Villas are contemporary, luxurious and spacious, and offer the combination of an independent villa holiday with the advantage of hotel-style service. Awarded by Conde Nast Johansens as well as World Luxury Hotels in 2007, The luxurious Villas are suitable for couples, groups or families. Relax in comfort and serenity and take the opportunity to order breakfast and meals on your private terrace or by your pool.
Better than a Five star Hotel
Because on average, a group gets much higher value per person for the price of a villa compared to seeking individual, equivalent hotel accommodation.
The equivalent 5 star hotel room is less spacious, doesn't have personal service or a private pool and is more expensive on a per person basis!
Crete, the island of history and beauty inspired us to create “The luxurious villas”, a constellation of nine exquisite luxurious villas all overlooking the breathtaking gulf of Mirabello. At The luxurious villas you enjoy your own private luxurious villa with spacious garden, personal swimming pool, secluded from your neighbours, all with the amenities and services of a 5 star hotel whenever you may request them!
Our vision was to create for our guests a place of inspiration, a ‘home away from home’, combining elegance, individuality, pleasure and comfort with direct connection to a vast and beautiful Cretan palette of wild flowers and herbs. Our team of professionals personally deals with the needs and requests of all our guests, ensuring that they enjoy everything about their stay, not just the fascinating landscape and intricate architecture.
We invite you to pamper yourself with a visit to “The luxurious villas”.
Aghios Nikolaos is a historic coastal town built on a lake!
Aghios Nikolaos is the capital of the Lasithi province, built on the western side of the Gulf of Mirabello around the famous Voulismeni or Apatos Lake. According to the colorful Greek Myth, the goddesses Athena and Artemis bathed in this lake and it is bottomless! The town is a cosmopolitan tourist resort which has maintained, to a great extent, its traditional feel, especially around the lake. Its a wonderful town that offers everything from shopping, taverns and restaurants, enjoying Greek culture, including a number of archaeological museums and sites nearby.
Special sites include the sunken ancient city of Elounda, parts of which we can see under water, several beautiful organized but also undiscovered coves and beaches, an aquarium, water park and golf course all at under a thirty minute distance!
The chapel of Aghios Nikolaos lies on port’s peninsula. This is where small boats set off to visit the islet of Spinalonga, with its Venetian castle, from Victoria Hislop's best selling novel "The Island". The town is also connected to the Cyclades (Melos), Cassos, Carpathos, Cos, Rhodes and the port of Piraeus.
Aghios Nikolaos is an ideal base for excursions as it is situated 75 kilometres from Herakleion, 70 kilometres from Siteia and 36 kilometres from Ierapetra.

Appartement propre et spacieux. magnifique vue sur la mer. proche du centre ville. village calme et agreable. accueil sympathique
My boyfriend and I just spent 3 nights at the apartment in Oia and had an amazing stay. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. The property is so nice and clean with an amazing view. The location is also great just up the stairs is the main part of town with plenty of restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend this property for a romantic vacation
I can't say enough good things about our Santorini experience, and Effie (I hope I've spelled her name correctly) and the apartment were great contributors to that experience. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the island, as well as offering suggestions on fun and unique things to do. Our only regret was not staying longer.
We had a very nice stay at the villa .Everything you might need is in the house. Very need and clean and Sarrah is always there to give a helping hand. Maybe 1 thing; there is a very small bathroom. When staying with 4 adults you really need to arrange to use it. I can recommand the villa strongly to every one who likes to be in a quiet environment with an extremely vast sea sight!
Great view. Everything seemed really new and modern. It was great having a kitchen. It's hard to find the place at night. Trust the instructions. Good value.
We chose to spend our 6 days family vacation in this villa and enjoyed every minute!! It is fully equipped, authentic but totally new, suitable for families with kids and babies.
The hosts were very nice and everything we needed was nearby.
We arrived at 6am with flight delayed originally at 2am arrival. There was no pickup arranged even if I responded on email (they said they do not check emails on weekends) and when I canned the apartments, they were not aware of our booking yet which caused me to worry so much at the airport. It was very hard to communicate with Sole Mare though the owner and management of the apartments did everything to help us and get us to checkin. Good thing the place was amazing and the apartment and management was helpful but Sole Mare (this registered here in AirBnB was not reliable and helpful at all. Regarding the apartment, we encountered problems with the shower as it caused some flooding but overall, the apartments had a good location across the bakery, beside the grocery, car rental, and the best restaurants of Oia were nearby plus Caldera view was walking distance as well. I recommend the apartment but not though this Sole Mare agency registered here so just (website hidden) the apartments and contact them directly.
Maison villa vraiment très belle avec toutes les commodités!!! Nous étions comme a la maison !!!!
Un complexe au calme très bien entretenu avec beaucoup de charme !!!
The place did not match the expectations. We decided to take something more expensive to really enjoy the place and the hotel was really disappointing. The quality is worse than average, the service was poor. The pictures and even the location indicated on the website do not give the good indication of the place. What you see on the picture as a swimming pool is a jacuzzi for example...
Vallas Hotel Apt. is ideally located in Firostefani and it is just a walk from the center of Fira, Santorini. Since it is high, the views were great. They serve great breakfast and they had great customer service! We love to come back here!
