If there was an official ranking system for villas, Aspalathos Villa would be a 6-star. In terms of architecture it follows the “less is more” paradigm, where aesthetical harmony and ergonomics make a perfect match. In terms of quality and comfort, it goes way beyond common standards, yet without any exaggeration. In terms of location, it offers absolute privacy and “card-postal” views. Allow yourself to have it all.
The interior of Aspalathos Villa is characterized by openness, ample space, functionality and attention to detail. On the ground floor there is a large kitchen equipped with branded main appliances plus extra electric appliances of all kinds. Large surfaces offer comfort in preparing your meal. There is also a very large living room with a modern fireplace, bamboo furniture along with a dining room that sits more than 10 people. You will immediately appreciate the tall windows on every side allowing you to enjoy the magnificent views of the villa no matter where you stand. On the east, there is a bedroom with a double bed and panoramic sea views. Next to the bedroom, there is an industrial style bathroom with shower cabin, plus a guest WC. But, we saved the best for last: on the ground level there is also an inner monastery style open air terrace!
On the first floor there are three more bedrooms and a guest room. The master bedroom, has a dome style roof (Santorini-style), a super-king size bed, spacious wardrobes and a luxury private bathroom with bathtub. It also features a private extra-large terrace with breathtaking panoramic view of the sea and mountains. There is one more bedroom with king size bed and a terrace with view and one bedroom with two single beds and a balcony with view. On the first floor, there is also a bathroom with shower cabin and luxury marble and mosaic surface, plus a guest bedroom with a romantic four-poster king size bed and a single bed. This room has a private bathroom with shower.
The outside is equally magnificent, with a large private swimming pool paved with pebbles, sun beds, two gardens with grass and plenty of relaxing space.
During July and August arrivals are only at Saturdays.
Aspalathos Villa is located in Lygaria, which is just outside Agia Pelagia, a famous cosmopolitan village 14 kilometers from Heraklion City.
Agia Pelagia used to be a fishing village like most seaside villages in Crete. With time, its privileged location attracted touristic investments that led to its boom two decades ago. Still, it keeps its traditional character, while the natural environment has been unspoiled.
Agia Pelagia features two wonderful beaches, Lygaria and Made. They are both sandy, with crystal clear waters and organized.

Wir sind von Maria herzlichst empfangen worden, das Haus ist sehr stilvoll eingerichtet und es fehlte an nichts. Alles war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Wir würden dieses Haus jederzeit wieder buchen.
Absolutely beautiful. We had such a relaxing time at the villa and in it’s surrounds. Maria is an outstanding host who really thinks of everything. We were 2 families with young children staying here and had the most marvellous time. It was very hard to leave.
