The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Crete is a great holiday destination for all, from families to experienced travellers! Holidaying in Crete offer us a great and unique way to see the largest and the most southern of Greek islands. The island has an enormous wealth of myths, legends and historical sites.

In addition, there is also incredible natural beauty through the island, combination of outstanding views with sea and mountain can be enjoyable. Furthermore, many caves and gorges exist to make adventure, creating unforgettable experiences!


Villa Daphne has an amazing location for unforgettable holidays!


Totally isolated and centred in the middle of a rural area abundant with olive trees it offers full privacy for those wishing to stay in a luxury accommodation away from it all! 

Simultaneously the villa is only 1.5 km away from the beach, living areas and Sfakaki market. Also found at a distance of 5 km are the well known tourist resorts "Platanias" and "Adelianos Kampos" where you can find supplies, amenities, services and entertainment! 


Finally the city of Rethymno is 10 minutes (12 km) away by car!

The location gives you the advantage of quiet and private holidays engulfed in Cretan nature but close to everything!
