Villa Danae is important to us because we could make our ideas true and could makes our family stronger by sharing our thoughts together.

A perfect vacation in a small paradise

  • 5 of 5

This listing is perfect if you want a REALLY nice place away from the tourist hotels. You need to rent a car, but then you are all set for a perfect vacation! Dimitris, Sophie, Nicos really are the perfect hosts and always tried to help out if we had any questions. The fridge broke and was fixed next day. We forgot our car key and they shipped it next day. I would mention that there are 14 cats next door, very friendly and cool cats. The pool was clean and looked after every 3rd day. I would not hesitate going for this villa if you like a quite, peaceful and cheap stay. Bargin. We will be back! Thank you so much!! :)

Maison idéale pour le repos et découvrir cette île merveilleuse

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans cette maison parfaite pour famille , avec l'odeur du jasmin qui borde la maison , un coin sieste en exterieur avec hamac ombragé et aéré, piscine nettoyée régulièrement. L'accueil des propriétaires est parfait , très attentifs à ce que le séjour se passe bien. L'équipement de la maison est plus que suffisant et la maison est propre . La situation géographique est parfaite pour ceux qui aiment le calme loin des grands groupes hôteliers et du amas de touristes.

10 minutes en voiture pour la plage la plus proche.

Conseil de visites que nous avons bien aimé et pas très loin en voiture. Monastère Arkadi/ Les petits villages de montagnes /Marguarite pour les poteries/ Centre historique d'Héraklion et Rethymon/ Dans le sud Monastère et plage de Préveli (magnifique) / Matala et ses grottes hippies. Dans l'est l' île de Spinalonga à faire au départ en bateau d' Agios Nikolais

Nous recommandons vivement cette maison.

Perfekte Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

...perfekte Unterkunft wenn man nach einem langen Tag wieder die Ruhe sucht.

Die Anlage bietet mit seinem Obstgarten und den vielen Rückzugsgelegenheiten eine perfekte Entspannung und lässt einen zur Ruhe kommen wenn man den erlebten Tag Revue passieren lässt, nicht zu vergessen der hauseigene Pool der zusätzlich ein Gefühl von Unabhängigkeit aufkommen lässt wenn man mal eben nicht an das Mittelmeer fahren möchte und trotzdem ein wenig schwimmen möchte. Schön wars und wir kommen gerne wieder. :) Hier ein kleines Andenken:

Schöner als die Fotos versprechen

  • 5 of 5

Als Erstes: Wir haben nur 5 Katzen gesehen, alle gut erzogen :) und es waren nur beim Grillen im Garten alle gleichzeitig da.

Der Empfang war sehr herzlich, man fühlt sich, als trifft man alte Freunde wieder. Das Haus bietet absolute Privatsphäre und ist mit allem ausgestattet, sogar Grillkohle war vorhanden und es gab auch ein kleines Willkommens-Geschenk.

Es gibt einige Ziele in der näheren Umgebung (Myli-Schlucht, Lake Kournas, ...) und wenn es mal wolkig ist, fährt man in nur 30 Minuten auf die Südseite der Insel (Preveli, Matala, ...) und springt dort ins Meer.

Wenn wir wieder auf Kreta Urlaub machen, werden wir gerne wieder hier unsere Zeit verbringen!
