Great value for money

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with three girl friends and booked fairly last minute. Villa is great but you may want to be aware that each downstairs bedroom has an open staircase to the double rooms upstairs and the bathrooms are attached to the downstairs bedrooms. This is great for families but could be an issued if you came to the villa as couples. It was fine for us as we had a room each and were happy to share bathrooms. Pool was perfect and clean but we had awful weather so didn't get to use . Plenty of outside furniture and you soon get used to the barking dogs and cockerels. It is rural so be ready for that. The house is up a steep hill but it's not far to the town for essentials but would recommend a car. We went to Bali and Rethymon and paramos but it was always nice to return to the villa at night. We were left some essentials which was appreciated , the villa could benefit from another hair drier and some smaller cooking pots. Also the lighting was quite harsh so a few lamps in the dining and sitting areas would be good but these are minor things. The owners are lovely and very helpful . Thanks to them for their help whilst we were there

Fantastic holiday, thanks.

Not much in Perama itself so a car is essential when staying here. Otherwise excellent all round

impressive family villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house. The villa is very well appointed - we had everything we needed (and more), the rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. Stepping straight out to the pool was lovely and you aren't overlooked, which was good. We had one minor issue with the wifi during our stay, but the response was very quick to get it sorted.

As with many places on Crete you do need sat nav, phone app or something similar to find it initially, but once you get your bearings it's very straightforward to come and go.

The only thing I would say, is that it's a bit more than 200m from the villa to the town and a bit of a pull uphill on the way back - but, that said, even I managed it 3 times. The bar/café/grill is great (they do take away and delivery if you can't face getting dressed and going out!), the supermarket next door is well stocked and the bakery next door to that does AMAZING cakes, pastries, sandwiches, slices of pizza and homemade ice-cream.

Would recommend as a base to see more of Crete or to chill out.

A beautiful villa in a beautiful location...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for two weeks in August 2016, and were very happy with our stay. The villa is in a beautiful location, and is kept in perfect condition. The outdoor area (including the pool and barbeque) is amazing, with the pool cleaned a few times a week to keep it as perfect as it appears in the pictures. Perama is a gorgeous, friendly village, and Panormos is amazing with beautiful beach and great restaurant. I wouldn't hesitate to come back to this villa, and would highly recommend it.

Villa Dafnos ll is exactly as the web site suggests. A wonderful base for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Mr Yiannis greeted us at the villa and had provided some basic foods as a gift, knowing our late flight would make it hard for us to get breakfast supplies.

The villa was exactly as expected, clean and well kept. The kitchen had all the amenities you could want....the toasty machine was particularly handy.

All the beds were firm and comfy with plenty of wardrobe space.

We had a problem with the WiFi but it did occasionally work from the balcony!

The pool was about 6ft deep, just enough to keep us all 8 of us happy.

Some cleaners came once in a week as did the pool maintenance man. There is only one taverna in Perama and a car is essential. Bali beach is a must!!

The views of the mountains are spectacular and the property gets full sun throughout the day...ending on the balcony.

I would not change one thing about Villa Dafnos ll, a very welcoming, relaxing, enjoyable and peaceful experience. Karen.
