Situated on Lagada Ridge, Villa Danae Crete provides 5 bedroom luxury accommodation just outside the delightful village of Makrygialos in south east Crete.
Overlooking the sea, Villa Danae is the perfect setting for the ultimate laid back holiday in the sun with your family and friends
Designed by architect Konstantinos Korakakis, the villa provides quality accommodation both inside and out, in a style sympathetic to its surroundings
The lounge, kitchen and dining areas are replicated outside around the inviting private heated pool, surrounded by a terrace with sun beds and settees for lazy days in the sun and evenings under the stars.
The finishing touch is provided by the purpose built BBQ where the men can prove their culinary skills!
The well appointed lounge extends onto a patio with further comfortable seating
There is a double (king size) ensuite bedroom on the ground floor, ideal for older guests or those with disability, complete with grab handles and wide doors for wheelchair access.
The whole ground floor has been designed to facilitate older or disabled guests with ramps enabling access all round the ground floor inside and out.
Upstairs you will find another 2 double (king size) en suite bedrooms and 2 twins with house bathroom all with private balconies. The twin beds can be joined to make further king size beds - the villa will accommodate 11 in beds + 1 baby in a cot
And for all you sun worshippers and stargazers, there's the roof terrace
Air conditioning is provided in the lounge, dining room and all bedrooms

If you've had enough sunshine, the lounge has a music system (iPod, mp3, cd, radio) and a 42" tv with satellite tv, DVD player, Wii and Playstation3 (bring your own games but make sure they are compatible first!) and the wireless router for internet connection via our satellite dish

The Crete region
Crete is famous for its weather and no more so than the south east of the island
The nearby town of Ierapatra is the most southerly city in Europe
The history of Crete revolves around the ancient Minoan civilization with numerous sites of antiquity to visit, particularly the Palace of Knossos
The Makrigialos / Bayview Resort area
The Makry-Gialos area is ideally located in the south-east of Crete to enjoy the benefits of both a relaxing beach holiday, and as a base for exploring eastern Crete. It has the best beaches in south-east Crete, including two blue flag beaches, and enjoys the superior North African influenced climate.
Road access is good, allowing day trips that range from Toplou Monastery in the far north-east, the palatial ruins of Minoan Kato Zakros on the east coast, the Venetian fort and subsequent leper colony of Spinalonga to the north-west, and the Lasithi plateau to the west. Even a day trip to Knossos is achievable.
Closer to base, the area is rich with stunning mountain scenery, uncrowded beaches and coves, historical sites, and traditional Cretan culture.
Explore the many traditional Cretan villages that nestle amongst the mountains
Experience the natural beauty of south east Crete on foot down the Pefki, Butterfly, or Pervolakia gorges
Guests at the villa have full access to all the organised water sports, gym and spa facilities at the nearby Mikri Poli Hotel.

We arrived at Bay View reception to meet Anja who took us to the Villa. When we started
along the "road" it was a bit of a shock, it was unmade,if we had known this it would have
influenced the model of car we would have hired, off roader might have been better. But
oh whoa what a Villa; beautiful from the outside and wonderful inside. We were a party of
eight adults age range 42yrs to 80yrs, 1 child almost 4yrs and a toddler 15months.
We wanted for nothing with regard to equipment and furnishings supplied, perhaps the only one thing that I would change personally would be a proper cot for babies/toddlers
instead of a travel cot.The pool was an absolute winner for all. The different outside spaces available was really pleasing, quiet areas, relaxing areas it had it all. We had great
barbie too. Pool service was second to none. This Villa guarantees you a fabulous time.
Many thanks to Steve and Kay
