Just return from 10 nights at Daphnis Villa. It was our first visit to Crete and we were very pleased with our Villa and have had a great holiday. The villa was spotless when we arrived and the pool very well maintained. My three children who are 15, 13 and 8 loved the pool.
We had a hire car for the duration of our stay and would recommend that anyone staying at Daphnis does for easy of purchasing food shopping and also to be able to drive to the lovely beach at Falasarna which is much nicer than the beach near the villa. There are lots of nice restaurants on the beach front in Maleme which can be reached on the bikes supplied be Daphnis Villas but if you have children who may get tired in the evenings then a car is better. During our stay we found lots to do including go karting and horse trekking. The harbour in Chania old town ( 20 mins drive ) is a must visit as is a boat trip to the secluded Balos Beach. We found eating out at the local beach restaurants very good value and the Greek locals were very welcoming.
If you want the flexibility of self catering and eating out and are happy to share the pool with a couple of other families then i would highly recommend a stay at Daphnis Villas.
Thank you Maria.
We had a lovely holiday at Daphnis Villas. The pool is amazing, the kids loved the kiddies pool. The villa was cleaned every day and had everything we needed. We went against recommendation and didn't hire a car, which could've turned out bad but Maria was amazing and went out of her way to help us with rice milk for our little boy. An overall relaxing stay.
