Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa Dafni. The villa is very well appointed, the pool is beautiful, and there are very pleasant views. We found the villa manager Valia extremely helpful. I would say a car is essential as the village is limited, and it is well worth exploring this lovely island.

Lovely villa and great host

  • 5 of 5

Host Tula was superb - lovely home cooked meal ready for us on arrival and loads of stuff in fridge etc - wine, beer, fruit, salads Tula was so helpful and welcoming - she and her son Manolas made the holiday perfect.

The villa was really clean and very well equipped, furnished to a high level and loads of room, indoors and out. Very convenient for Rethymno and beaches etc - 20 mins drive. Two nice taverns in the village with hospitable owners.

Again, can't say enough about our hosts - we highly recommend a stay here to everyone.

14 Days of tranquility & fun

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the beautiful scenery and peaceful location to the typically Greek town below the amazing villa is an absolute delight. Having two grown up children 19 & 17 and still as much work as travelling with a toddler the three houses as one worked amazingly well for our large family three teenage kids (two with Boyfriend/Girlfriends) and a 14 year old but the space and layout allowed everyone space and time to enjoy Crete. Pleasant drive to beaches and mountains added to further the Cretan experience. The local staff are amazing nothing s to much or a bother. The local restaurants and shops are typically local and lovely to experience and although a rural farming community they make everyone very welcome. Can't wait to visit again and if you do book make sure you also take the Land rover safari it is a day to remember and enjoy xx

Fantastica vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Siamo appena rientrati da una stupenda vacanza a creta, stupenda oltre che per i fantastici posti anche per la fantastica casa che abbiamo trovato.

Appena arrivati siamo stati accolti calorosamente dal proprietario che nonostante non parlasse italiano o inglese aveva al seguito un traduttore c'ha ci ha tradotto ogni cosa...

La casa era stupenda, dotata di ogni confort possibile, dal microonde alla lavatrice, la piscina stupenda ci ha regalato bellissimi momenti assieme al barbecue nuovo di zecca. I proprietari hanno provveduto a far pulire e controllare la piscina e far pulire le camere da personale addetto. Avevamo a disposizione asciugamani puliti a volontà sia per la casa che per piscina, all'arrivo abbiamo trovato in ogni porzione di casa bottiglie di vino e prodotti tipici. Per qualunque cosa i proprietari sono stati sempre disponibili e gentilissimi.

La vacanza non poteva andare meglio, casa veramente consigliatissima sia per grandi famiglie che per gruppi di amici come noi
