Danae's Villas are located in a quiet area above Koutouloufari village and have been designed and equipped to provide ideal holidays for families and groups of friends of older ages. Important Notice: To help maintain the quiet, family character of the villas, we respectfully advise our guests that the use of quad bikes, motorbikes and/or vehicles that produce high levels of noise is not allowed on the property's grounds. Thank you in advance for your kind co-operation. Danae's Villas complex is located 25km east of Heraklion International Airport, at the highest and most serene area of Koutouloufari traditional village. The complex consists of four luxury villas, identical in architectural design, but individually named and decorated after four colors most frequently observed in the Mediterranean landscape. The visitors' choice of one of the four villas will be met with satisfaction from the very first moment of their arrival, as they will find a carefully balanced combination of luxury and simplicity. The spacious and functional interior is elegantly decorated and provides moments of rest and rejuvenation. At the same time, the visitors can relax at the private pool of each villa next to the wonderful gardens and enjoy the splendid, panoramic view. Built with zest, refined taste and respect to the privacy of every visitor, the four independent villas of Danae's complex are the ideal destination for a pleasant and unforgettable holiday experience, in an area of superb natural beauty and excellent climate, tenderly caressed by the breeze of the deep blue Cretan Sea. The names of the four villas were inspired by four vivid colors, each one of them bearing a symbolization of its own. The four villas of the complex share the same architectural design and facilities. The interior of the ground level (pool area level) consists of a spacious sitting room, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, a twin bedroom and a bathroom with bathtub. In the exterior of the ground level, there is the pool and the pool area, as well as gardens and flower-beds. An outside dining area can also be found on the ground level. The interior of the upper level (parking area level) consists of a twin bedroom, a bedroom with a king-size bed and a bathroom with shower cabin, which is accessible by both bedrooms. On the exterior of the upper level, there is a spacious terrace, flower-beds and a large parking area. All three bedrooms of each villa come out to either a terrace or a balcony. The two levels of each villa are connected with interior and exterior stairs. Each villa is accessible by two entrances on both the ground and the upper level.

We stayed in the Danae Green villa for two weeks , end of September/ beginning of October . Second time in this village but first time at these villas . We hired a car from the airport, and we arrived at the villas in no time at all . On our arrival George showed us round our villa , and wow we were amazed at how luxurious and comfortable our villa was . The swimming pool is such a good size too , and we enjoyed playing pool and table tennis throughout our stay . We really liked our view down to the sea , whilst we were having a drink or lunch . Every night we walked down into the village and enjoyed a meal at one of the many excellent restaurants . We really recommend these villas and hope to come back .

Arrived at the Danae luxury villas 2 hours before our official check-in time George greeted us at the door and told us that we would be able to use the villa although we were early which was warmly appreciated. The villa is built to a very high standard There was an extensive welcome pack containing milk ,water,tea & coffee and also toiletries in every bathroom with everything that you need for a self catering holiday washing machine, dishwasher etc... it has a good sized swimming pool also a pool table full-sized table tennis table for your entertainment The villa is situated at the top of a very steep Hill about a 300m walk from the village of koutalafari We hired two small quads for the duration of the holiday from Moto Express in the village of koutouloufari make sure you hire a 80 cc or above quad as anything less will not get up the hill with two people on.If you are going to hire a car make sure it is a small one as a lot of the roads in koutouloufari are very narrow.The only complaint I have got is the quality of the Wi-Fi everything else about the Villas is excellent and George gave us a leaving gift of olive oil which was very nice we would definitely go back and also recommend danae luxury villas

Just returned from a fabulous week at Danae Villas. We are a group of 5 friends and stayed in the yellow villa. Cannot fault a thing. The villa was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and perfectly located with many lovely bars and restaurants a short stroll away. The welcome pack is a lovely touch as was the gift of local olive oil at the end of our stay. The hill is quite steep so probably not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. Cannot wait to return next year. Tip-the lady at the supermarket at the bottom of the hill is happy to lend the basket with wheels to take your shopping back up the hill!

The Danae Blue villa is up an extremely steep hill which for our party was a bit of an issue. The taxi which we arranged through Villa Plus couldn't get up the hill so we had to walk up with our suitcases, an elderly mother and another on crutches in our party so not ideal start. The rep apologised and the return journey to the airport was much better. The villa was ill equipped for a self catering holiday, no oven trays, no BBQ tools, very limited supply of kitchen equipment, no cupboards for food storage, absolutely no workspace. There was a dishwasher but no tablets, salt or rinse aid. We had to buy absolutely everything which in all the other villas we have stayed in, the basics were provided. We had no blankets, just sheets so had to ask for those too. The rep, Julie was fantastic and responded very quickly to all our requests. Our privacy was also invaded a lot more than necessary on our holiday. The owner came most days, unannounced and uninvited, she even came and took the cushions from the sun loungers the evening before we were due to leave! The view is unfortunately spoiled by an enormous villa right in front of Villa Danae Blue which is a shame. There is only 1 umbrella outside so difficult to get any respite from the sun. The table tennis had seen better days. WiFi was awful, you could just about read an email if you persevered but definitely no streaming of any sort. The villa grounds were over run with kittens and stray cats. The positive things were the air conditioning was great, villa was big and clean, the rep from Villa Plus was great, the pool was lovely and the pool table was really good fun for the teenagers and adults! We’ve stayed in much better villas especially for the price!
