Fantastic villa and facilities
There were 8 of us in our family party for our two week holiday to Crete and Villa Dafni was the perfect set up for us. From the email support before we arrived through to the regular linen changes the carers for this complex are exceptionally good at looking after their guests. All the villas were presented beautifully and the pool and outside cooking and eating area is fantastic. The villa is situated in a small village which has everything you need and is just a short 10minute drive away from the lovely beach town of Panormo. We would highly recommended this villa and the location for larger families who are travelling together but also need their own living spaces.
Beautiful pool area, and outside eating areas. Great shaded areas which are good for children etc. Fantastic BBQ.
Very close to Perama, walking distance to shops. Perama is a little run down and not many nice restaurants but plenty of well stocked supermarkets.
Villa's need updating; limited range of kitchen equipment.
Overall we had a lovely time, and the layout of the properties is perfect for big families so they can have space and privacy as well as being together.
Dear Sophie, we are really glad that you had a comfortable stay in our Villa and we are thankful for your beautiful review and comments! Regards, ThinkVilla Team
Wonderful villa with fantastic pool and outside areas
The villa was wonderful, had everything you would need. Each of the houses had a lovely welcome basket on arrival.
It is a 5 minute walk in to town where there are a couple of nice tavernas serving good food. It was a perfect relaxing holiday and I would definitely recommend the villa to everyone. We hope to return ourselves one day’
Dear Chris, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Exactly as described and very clean.
A lovely set of 3 separate houses which are perfect for giving families with older children their own privacy. Couldn't fault the cleaning regime, towels, linen, mopping etc twice a week. You do need a car though and I wouldn't advise arriving late at night due to finding it. A handy tip is to enter the name of the larger villa near it into Google maps, Villa Elaida when in the town. Good BBQ area and pool chemicals checked on a regular basis. Would definitely return to the villa.
Dear Rob, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Perfect Greek holiday base!
Friendly, helpful owner & lovely staff. Good to be welcomed with wine, fruit & olives and the apartments were well furnished & generously stocked - nice not to have to buy loo rolls, washing stuff etc.The 3 apartments worked perfectly for the multi- generation family & we could eat together by the pool or on the terrace surrounded by the beautiful flowers & herbs. The town had everything we needed - fishmongers, bakery, greengrocers & a choice of supermarkets & places to grab a drink or meal. We appreciated the air-conditioning and pool when we got back from exploring the island - the swimmers made the most of snorkeling in the clear waters. We'd love to come back to see the area in spring or autumn. Thoroughly recommended!
Dear Mary, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Fabulous! Perfect for an extended family.
Split into three separate self contained houses with a fantastic outdoor cooking and dining area next to the pool, this was perfect for our extended family holiday. Frequent cleaning and linen change was included. We couldn't fault the accommodation. A car is necessary. There are a couple of good restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance but in general the local high street is a bit run down. Within a short drive are some lovely villages and beaches so there is plenty to see and do. Check out the reptile place which is not far by car. The guy who owns this knows his stuff and you get to hold snakes and lizards. The local olive factory is also worth a visit.
Dear Beverley , thank you for this amazing review and we would really love to host you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Villa Dafni is located in Perama town which is within 5 minutes walking distance to everything that you might need like shops, bakery, grocery store, butcher’s, taverns, cafes, supermarkets, ATM machines, pharmacies, gas stations and post office.
Also Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, 10 minutes away by car and well know for its sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds & umbrellas. Water sports are also available. The harbour beach in front of the village is the port of the area, where the boats tie up, this beach is unorganised.
The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.
Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.
Panormo has regular bus itineraries every 30 minutes that connects Heraklion and Chania cities.
