If two words could be used to summarise the true meaning of authentic Cretan hospitality, they would be no other than “Mala Villa” in the Ierapetra district of the Prefecture of Lasithi, in the historical village of Malles. With dedication, exceptionally sophisticated style, fully respecting the environment and its history, the owners of the complex have created five amazing detached holiday homes each with its own entrance and fully equipped so that guests can feel they’re in their own luxury refuge enjoying relaxing holidays.

From spacious rooms to a relaxing jacuzzi, and from gardens with barbecues to balconies with panoramic views, every corner of the complex exudes a refined, impeccable aesthetic. All residences (two of which are maisonettes) have their own independently adjustable heating system and energy-efficient fireplace, a bedroom with luxury white bed linen, anatomical mattress and pillows, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with jacuzzi, comfortable living room – dining room and of course a fridge, mini bar and LED satellite TV.

Your stay at Mala Villa is complemented by a top quality restaurant where authentic Cretan dishes are served, and a café bar where guests can enjoy not just coffee but also soft drinks, local mezes, local sweets and authentic Cretan raki. As part of its flawless service to guests, additional information about various activities on the island is available and we can arrange to book them for you. At the same time, top hygiene rules are observed and the residences are cleaned daily.
