Large villa with very good surroundings which met the needs of our two families travelling together. Close distance to the beach and local tavernas.

“Amazing villa and wonderful Greek hospitality!”
Reviewed May 12, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our trip was a family party of 9 people to celebrate an 80th birthday. We have stayed in many villas but this was the best by far, absolute luxury, it's as good as the photos and has some surprises. Markos,Kostas and Sophia looked after us so well and spoiled us with cakes,pizzas and croissants. When we needed a doctor Markos got one to us within 10 minutes. The villa has everything you need and more and we will be returning next year. Thanks for helping us celebrate in comfort,style and luxury, a truly unforgettable holiday !

“Great villa with fantastic hospitality from owners”

I don't usually post reviews but we chose Villa Daphne for our 'Familymoon' (our honeymoon but taking our children, 3 and 13).

The villa is around an hours drive from the airport and easy to find.

Overall we were delighted with the layout and condition of the property. It is hugely spacious and exceptionally well maintained. Wonderful views from the terrace of the mountains and ocean (with great sunsets every evening). Everything you could possibly need is there and the owners have gone out of their way to provide a wonderful array of useful items such as charcoal for the outdoor BBQ, their own olive oil and a host of other items.

The villa was cleaned very regularly and always spotless. On each visit and wonderful array of gifts were provided which was a very wonderful touch. On arrival and departure the owner also provided gifts, deeply sweet.

The owner was warm and helpful and we had to contact them a few times during our stay for one reason or another, nothing was too much trouble.

Location wise it is about a five minute drive from the nearest shops etc so you need car and can't easily walk out for an evening etc. But the upside is complete peace. The private gardens are huge, you are not overlooked and even around the gardens are just acres of olive groves to explore for nature walks.

The indoor pool was a nice touch but the outdoor one the main event. Large, clean and definitely the wow factor. The outdoor BBQ and dining area overlook the pool which makes a nice backdrop to relaxed dinners.

Overall a great time was had by all. Would recommend taking on some of the optional extras such as the private Chef (Stelios Fanourakis) - food was incredible and plentiful and made a couple of very special evenings once we had put the children in bed. The masseuse(Antonis Maragoudakis) and his colleague we booked for two occasions and having a massage whilst listening to music on the terrace as the sunset is a special memory. We also hired a private boat for the day to take us to Balos Beach (Sea Star Chania) which was great but a little rough with the waves for our little ones liking!

In terms of places to visit that are nearby (we were on holiday here for 9 days and didn't manage to explore a tiny fraction of what Crete has to offer) we recommend Old Town Rethymno - wonderful shops and restaurants with a nice little harbour - about 15 minutes drive (eat at La Boheme - wonderful Cretan food has service - we ended up returning to eat here twice).

I think that we would definitely be back. Our warmest thanks to Markos

“Most amazing villa ever!”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had the most amazing experience in Villa Daphne. We were provided with such incredible service, starting with a lovely meet and greet tour around the villa, cleaning every 3 days and boxes of treats, cakes, chocolates, vegetables etc left and a lovely departure gift. Markos kept in contact regularly to ensure that we were all alright, to advise good places to eat or visit and to warn us when the cleaners would be coming. The villa was one of the most beautiful villas we could only of dreamed of. The eldest children loved the indoor jacuzzi whilst my younger son enjoyed the air hockey! The pool is massive and such fun for pool games and races. We couldn't of wished for a nicer holiday. Definitely recommend!!!
