This is an absolutely lovely villa in a quiet location, just inland from hotels along the coast. It is well laid out and extremely well equipped. Zacharias is a great host who met us at the villa when we arrived in the early hours. The starter food package was much appreciated as were the gifts on our departure. We managed to lock ourselves out at one point and Zacharias quickly came to rescue us with a gift of some amazing cakes to say sorry! He was so gracious to us. There is plenty to do in the immediate area as well as further a field or you can just chill by the pool! Zacharias' warmth together with that of his brother and mum, really made the stay for us. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Crete.
Villa Dafni exceeded our expectations. The villa itself is just as beautiful and clean as it looks in the photographs. We are a family of 5 and had way more space than we needed. In my opinion this villa is perfect for two families of 4/5 due to the layout of bedrooms and bathrooms. The upstairs bedrooms are huge and both lead out onto a large veranda equipped with outdoor furniture, a lovely place to have a morning coffee or a drink at sunset. The large kitchen is very well equipped. Airconditioning and wifi worked perfectly throughout the entire house. The outdoor area was by far the highlight for us. The pool was exceptionally clean and the whole space was beautifully laid out and maintained. There were 8 very comfortable sunbeds and a large umbrella aswell as a table and chairs and barbecue area. The outdoor area is not overlooked and provides beautiful views of the surrounding areas. A car is a must as only the town of Perama is within walking distance but there are a number of lovely beaches within a short drive. During our stay we visited Heraklion, Knossos, Rethymno and the beaches at Plakias, Bali and Panormos, loved it all. Communication with Valia was fantastic before and throughout our stay. She went above and beyond in ensuring all was well. The welcome pack was exceptional! The house was cleaned once during our week long stay. We had a problem with the washing machine and were delighted when it was replaced within a couple of days, thank you Valia! Would highly recommend this villa.
