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 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.

"Couldn't ask for more!"
Overall a fantastic trip. Home from home in terms of the villa, we really couldnt ask for more! Totally private, sights, sounds and smells just as it should be! Every tiny detail had been thought of,… More
So pleased you had a great holiday. Thanks for your feedback. Pool maintenance routine has been addressed. Petra Bay and Dragon's Cave are good, and there are loads of others. Just ask Anja for recommendations. Hope to see you again sometime.

"Peaceful, relaxing, welcoming and worth every penny."
I was first here two years ago and only broken fingers kept me away last year! It was an absolute joy to return to Villa Danae again this year. All was just as I remembered but now with the added bonus of a solar cover over the pool which has really increased the water temperature. The new gazebo is an excellent idea for shade as are the facilities for babies. It seems to me that all is needed now is for the parents to bring along the baby's clothes. I spotted everything from kitchenware, bedding, towels, toys, games and a spacious looking playpen, paddling pool, the list is endless. Well done to Kay and Steve Wright! They really have thought of everything it seems to me! Very impressed with all the facilities as before. Oh there is wi-fi too now! Weather was superb too! We arrived in a heat wave and so it went on for almost two weeks! Looking forward to my next visit already!
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you can return again one day

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
