About Ibrahim Soliman
My name is Ibrahim, I am British/Egyptian. I work as a finance analyst and management accountant. I bought Sunset Villa 5 years ago. It's not just a holiday home for me, it's much more than that. I picked Crete because I use to go there each summer holiday when I was student in Alexandria University. I use to work in farms, restaurants and hotels. I made loads of friends and I speak the Greek language. It was a dream for me to build a house in Crete as I felt it was my home. I came from a very poor background and this would be my first house ever. I finished at university then went to the UK to specialise in management accounts. Worked very hard, saved some money, then went back to look for a plot of land and built with a new vision in my mind of a holiday home.
Ibrahim Soliman purchased this villa in 2004
Why Ibrahim Soliman chose Rethymnon
I went to many places in Crete to buy the plot of land I had imagined, but nothing really moved me.
One day I went to see a plot in Agia Triada village, when I arrived there and stood on the land, I said 'wow!'. I said yes immediately, it was exactly what I wanted, near the beach, supermarkets and restaurants, but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. (It is only half a mile.) The views from where I stood were magical. It's very strange how you can feel that you are related to a place from the first visit, you just feel at home. I had a lot of input in designing the villa, so I feel it is my baby! I wanted to make the villa different to other holiday homes. I wanted people to feel at home, relaxed, at peace and to enjoy every minute of their holiday.
What makes this villa unique
A holiday in sunset villa will re-charge your batteries because of the fresh air, peace and quiet. The villa is surrounded with magical views of the sea, mountains, olive groves and across the valley. Where ever you are in the villa you will enjoy the views. Even when you are in the sitting room having a drink you will see the valley. This is one of the benefits you get in sunset villa and you wouldn't be able to get it in many other places due to the location of the villa. It is high on a hill so you can have great views from anywhere. If you go up to the roof terrace there are 2 even bigger benefits; number 1 the views are even better, and number 2, you will have more time in the sun while other surrounding villas have no sun around late afternoon.
