The villa was named “Daphne” after the fragrant homonymous plant (laurel) which grows around the property and is used by local people to make tea or as a herb in traditional Cretan cuisine! If you believe that accommodation is a major factor in aiding a unique holiday experience then Villa Daphne is exactly what you are looking for! Built in 2006 and renovated mostly in the outdoors in 2014 and indoors in 2018, Villa Daphne can accommodate 10 people in beds. This outstanding property provides total privacy in both the indoor and outdoor area, surrounded by nature and at the same time is conveniently located very close to the beach and all kinds of shops!

Layout of the villa


Located in a 4,000 sq. m. high fenced olive grove Villa Daphne is a 350 sq. m. accommodation consisting of two floors. The open plan first floor is accessed through the main entrance and there you will find a living room with an open fireplace, cosy sitting area with large sofas and a dining table. Through its large glass doors, the room offers lovely sea views and direct access to the garden and pool, after descending a few stairs. A 40’’ HDTV, a Playstation 4, a Nintendo Wii and board games are also available in the living room. Next to the dining area, a fully equipped kitchen makes sure that you have all that is needed to prepare your homemade meals. The master bedroom with a double bed and a twin bedroom are also available on this level, as well as a bathroom with a bathtub, a WC and a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The living room opens up to a large veranda, equipped with patio furnishing, providing additional siting areas overlooking the sea and the pool, an ideal place to watch the sunset and relax.


The remaining three bedrooms of the Villa can be found on the ground floor, two of which feature a king size bed each, while the last one has two single beds. If needed, the single beds in the bedrooms can be converted to a king size bed with a king size bed size mattress topper. Furthermore, a second kitchen and an additional bathroom with a bathtub can be found on this floor, providing independence and privacy to large groups when required. Last but not least, the ground floor boasts an indoor,15 sq. m. swimming pool (minimum - maximum depth: 0.6 m - 1 m), which also functions as a Jacuzzi and can be heated if required with an extra charge. Please note that the indoor pool heating can be used upon advance request for the entire stay and it requires at least one week advance notice.


The terrace of Villa Daphne is complemented by a huge 100 sq. m swimming pool, (minimum - maximum depth: 0.4m - 1.7m) equipped with sun beds and umbrellas for your comfort. Barbecue facilities and an outdoor dining table under the shade of the pergola give you ample opportunity to try al fresco dining, while an extra shaded siting area and a gazebo are also available. On the other side of the pool a lawn covered area with a playground and toys under the olive trees is at the disposal of our young guests, while on a covered part of the ground floor veranda, by the pool, a mini football table, as well as gym equipment including a bicycle, wights and an exercise bench.
