Beautiful Greek Villa

  • 5 of 5

2 adults and 2 teenagers had a fantastic holiday in Villa Danae.....it was home from home with a fantastic large pool and stunning gardens complete with hammock which was very relaxing when I could get a turn....views were stunning of the mountains and with a lovely breeze, far enough away from the tourist hotels but only a 10 min drive to the nearest supermarket, and Taverns and within easy reach to the main road that takes you around the island....all in all a perfect villa and location...must mention Sophia who was very kind and helpful....would highly recommend this Villa for a very chilled holiday...

Many thanks, hope to see you again soon.

A perfect vacation in a small paradise

  • 5 of 5

This listing is perfect if you want a REALLY nice place away from the tourist hotels. You need to rent a car, but then you are all set for a perfect vacation! Dimitris, Sophie, Nicos really are the perfect hosts and always tried to help out if we had any questions. The fridge broke and was fixed next day. We forgot our car key and they shipped it next day. I would mention that there are 14 cats next door, very friendly and cool cats. The pool was clean and looked after every 3rd day. I would not hesitate going for this villa if you like a quite, peaceful and cheap stay. Bargin. We will be back! Thank you so much!! :)

grosser uneinsehbarer Garten, sehr privat, das Haus bietet alles was im Urlaub benötigt wird

  • 4 of 5

Unbedingt empfehlenswert. Ein Auto ist erforderlich. Die Vermieter sind äusserst hilfsbereit. Der Fernseher hatte keinen Empfang von deutschen Sendern gleich am nächsten Tag kam ein Techniker, der einen neuen Receiver anschloss. Der Pool wurde 2x wöchentlich gewartet. Das Haus liegt abseits vom touristischen Troubel, jedoch ist bei Bedarf alles nach kurzer Fahrt zu erreichen.

Wir werden gerne unseren nächsten Urlaub in der Villa Danae verleben.

Nous avons sejourné une semaine dans cette maison ,c'etait un pur bonheur en commençant par un accueil chaleureux avec des cadeaux de bienvenue.

Nous avons profité du grand jardin ou nous prenions les petits dejeuners a l'ombre des caroubiers,des repas servis sur la terrasse et des baignades dans cette grande piscine qui nous a bien rafraichi.

L'environnement est tres calme,Rethymnon n'est pas loin ainsi que les plages.

En un mot ,superbe.

Eine erholsame Woche fern des Touristentrubels

  • 4 of 5

Wir durften eine Woche lang im schönen Haus Danae unseren Urlaub verbringen.

Am Anreisetag wurden wir herzlich von Sophie und ihrem Sohn empfangen und im Haus rumgeführt. Es wurde uns alles erklärt, vom Lichtschalter bis zu der gut ausgestatteten Küche, sowie Auskünfte zu dem nächsten Supermarkt in der Nähe, so dass wir keine langen Such-Aktionen starten mussten. Außerdem stand uns schon Obst, Wein und eine Flasche Wasser bereit, was uns das Gefühl gegeben hat, willkommen zu sein.

Das Haus ist zwar klein, aber charmant. Die Küche ist offen und mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht. Es gibt zwei Schlafzimmer mit Klimaanlage, so dass es abends schön kühl im Zimmer ist. Die Wände sind recht dünn, kann also passieren, dass man mal die Nachbarn vom Nebenhaus bei ihren (nächtlichen) Aktivitäten hört ;)

Die Dusche im oberen Bad ist eine Duschwanne und im guten Zustand. Die zweite Dusche befindet sich in einem kleinen Badezimmer wo die Dusch-Armatur direkt gegenüber dem WC hängt. Wir haben diese nicht benutzt, da man unweigerlich das Klo samt Mülleimer mitgeduscht hätte :)

Der Garten ist das Highlight der Villa, echt wunderschön angelegt und ein kleines Paradies. Es gibt einen gemütlichen schattigen Essbereich mit tollem großen Stein-Grill. Blumen, Rosmarinbüsche, Weinreben und Obstbäume, sowie eine einladende Hängematte erwarteten uns. Die Bäume werden von Zikaden bewohnt, deren Geräusche tagsüber für Dschungel-Flair sorgen. Generell sollte man sich jedoch bewusst sein, dass das Haus eher ländlich steht. Wer ein Problem mit Insekten hat, wird hier nicht glücklich. Wer Spaß an der Natur hat, findet hier viele interessante Arten: Asseln, Heuschrecken, Schmetterlinge, Nashornkäfer, Libellen, Zikaden usw, manchmal sogar Geckos oder Eidechsen.

Daher hätten wir es auch schön gefunden, wenn der Pool eine Abdeckung gehabt hätte.

Dieser ist nachts beleuchtet, was toll aussieht, aber schnell Insekten anzieht die man wieder rauskeschern muss.

Apropos Tiere: Es sollte für Allergiker erwähnt werden, dass die Nachbarn viele Katzen haben. Die sind alle lieb und eher scheu, aber ein verspielter Kater hat sich gern mal selbst ins Haus eingeladen, wenn nicht hingeguckt wurde.

Ansonsten ist das Haus, anders als beschrieben, ein Nichtraucher-Haus und es darf nur draußen geraucht werden, lt. Besitzer!

Die Stadt Rethymno ist ca. 25 min mit Auto entfernt. In nur 10-15 min kann man schöne Strände in der Nähe erreichen. Skaleta können wir empfehlen mit klarem Wasser!
