This property is not suitable for young party groups!!! It is the property's policy not to accept bookings from single sex groups and/or groups where the majority of members are under 25 years of age (except in families), as well as certain bookings for the purpose of group events or parties, including graduation celebrations and pre-wedding stag/bachelor and hen/bachelorette parties. This is by no means judgmental and/or alluding to the sexual orientation of guests or in any way discriminatory. 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.
