About Kalliopi Sopas

We live here in Crete, and we have two lovely daughters. We work full time in the tourist branch for more than 25 years. After so many years in tourism we know exactly why people come to Crete. People want to escape from all the stress and everyday living. Relaxation is what people looking for. We have tried to create with a lot of love and imagination this little “paradise” for you and for ourselves.

Kalliopi Sopas purchased this villa in 2009

Why Kalliopi Sopas chose Heraklion

We chose this particular area for its peaceful location and beautiful sunsets. Within a few minutes drive you can find everything you need in the villages nearby. There’s easy access to the property and the beach is only 1 km away. To the airport it is only 15 minutes drive with the car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wunderful and relaxing honeymoon in villa Valentine.The views are spectacular and each day the stresses of "normal Live ebbed away.

Will definately return for another visit.

John & Vicky (Liverpool) May 2014

Had a wonderful holiday at villa Valentine. Particularly enjoyed the pool, doing yoga in the garden by sunset. A lovely House in a beautiful setting, what more can we say.

Lucy & Mark U.K July 2014

We are so glad we found your villa. We had an amazing stay that much we didn't want to go home, but all good things come to an end. We will be back again sometime in the future thats for sure.

Margo & Derek Anderson October 2014

Thank you for such a lovely place to relax. We loved the garden and the views of the sea. Also enjoyed walking on the beach and discovering a bit more about Minoan civilisation of Crete. Also a time to reflect away from our busy lives at home. A truly romantic destination for honeymoon, couldn't have been set in a better location.

Phil & Zoe November 2014

We absolutely loved it, so romantic and so private.

Absolute paradise for couples, and as private as it can get and you can't imagine the rest! .

Perfect for a romantic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a week in May and loved the villa. It is a lovely, compact little home with a fantastic outdoor space. The pool was wonderful relief from the hot weather.

We loved using the BBQ and even had an attempt at using the pizza oven after finding some pizza dough flour in one of the nearby supermarkets. Plenty of pots, pans and utensils if you want to cook but the villa isn't far from Hersonissos where you can eat in tavernas.

I'd recommend getting a hire car as it's too far to walk to the nearby town, which is great if you want to escape the touristy areas but still be close enough to travel to them for day trips. The villa was a great base for us to explore the island.

Poppy was really welcoming and helpful. Hopefully we'll be back one day soon!!

Ideal for a relaxed, romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came to Villa Valentine on honeymoon and it was perfect for us - a small but beautifully-kept villa out of the busy touristy areas, plenty of space to relax outside in the shade, a private swimming pool and within walking distance of a bus stop. Poppy our host was very welcoming (we were thrilled to find fresh fruit and bread waiting for us when we arrived late at night with no idea where to find food) and really helpful, going out of her way to help us make the most of our stay. We enjoyed a trip to the local beach, and to a lovely restaurant in the old Hersonissos village. We would highly recommend to others.

Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week. The villa is small but the large and well equipped outside area is magnificent. The pool is lovely and the garden and shaded area are everything you need for complete relaxation. We drove to nearby villages for dinner where the food was lovely. If you are looking to get away from it all, it's worth a look.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have spent two perfect holidays at Villa Valentine, and are booking a third. It is in a wonderful location - quiet and peaceful but within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. The garden and pool are beautiful, and the villa is very clean and well equipped - small but with a wonderful outdoor living area. We absolutely love it. Crete is a very friendly island - all in all, a perfect place to spend a holiday!!!

Charming peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, remote and quiet, but still close to Hersonissos and Heraklion, with lots of restaurants, beaches, museums, attractions near by to visit (need a vehicle, we've rented a car from airport). Private pool, beautiful garden with sea view. Perfect for couples.

Lovely place for a perfect holiday in beautiful Crete; we enjoyed every moment of it. Thank you, Poppy. Thank you, Crete. Hope to see you both again soon :)

Spent 2 weeks in Villa Valentine. Daughter slept on sofa bed downstairs. Air Con in upstairs bedroom. Private Pool - Sea View. Highly recommend this villa. It would be great for romantic couples but couples with one child too. You need to hire a vehicle. Loved Crete. A++++

There're sun beds but the green grass is so nice and soft that you will enjoy to lay down in grass as well.
