A beautiful private villa in a peaceful area with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we had hoped it would be.

It was totally private - and the views from the terrace were amazing.

We spent our days in and around the private pool - just soaking up the beauty of the place!

Pool, views and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Villa Damythri is very comfortable, well located and a great place to take a relaxing break. It is located about 1km from the village of Plaka where there are a number of bars/restaurants and about 2km from the beach side village of Almaryda with its many bars/restaurants.

The village of Plaka is an easy 20 minute walk down hill, though some may find the return more challenging. There are generally sufficient places to park if driving is preferred.

Almaryda is another kilometre down the hill and has a good beach with shallow waters, perfect for families with small children. There are many places to eat and drink but it is not overdeveloped.

The villa is within a two hour drive of Heraklion, 40 minutes of Chania, one hour over the mountains to the South Coast and about two hours to the beaches of the west coast.

Summer Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4, with children aged 15 and 12. Having stayed in a hotel last year and had to fight for sunbeds by 8am, we decided on a villa holiday.

Our criteria was; wifi (to keep the 12 yr old happy), pool, air conditioning and decent quality accommodation, preferably in a secluded location.

Villa Damythsi more than exceeded our expectations! Pre-holiday I liaised with the owner Kevin on several occasions with odd questions, and Kevin was always quick to respond and help, so my natural nervousness with booking direct disappeared.

The villa is ideally situated in our opinion, it's a short drive (4 mins) to the lovely local square which has a handful of well priced/great food restaurants and a couple of supermarkets, and is off the beaten track with a few villas dotted around.

When you open the curtains on that first morning the view is stunning, the mountains to your left and the sea to your right with the pool glistening in the sun - bliss!

The villa is very comfortable, all the rooms are air conditioned which is crucial with the July heat, the kitchen is well equipped and each bedroom has plenty of hanging space/drawers. The pool is just the right size and has a jacuzzi style seat at one end. It is very private and no one can really see you from neighbouring villas. There are balconies to the front and rear and it was lovely to sit on the top balcony in the evening with a glass of wine looking at the stars.

We can't wait to go back!

Great 2 weeks!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 2 small children (0 and 2). Kevin arranged 2 baby cots (without matresses) and 1 high chair. Chris (local caretaker) did his best to arrange matresses. The result was great, the children were happy so we were happy.

What we loved:

- views to the white mountains and the sea

- high part of the swimming pool

- close to the Beach and supermarkets

- Well equiped house

- airco in all the rooms

- very good price / quality

Tip: tiles around the swimming pool can be slippery :-)

Great location for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Damythsi turned out to be a perfect location for our family; there were 7 of us, youngest being 17. All had a great time; the pool was lovely, the villa slept 7 comfortably & views are amazing. A great choice when eating out locally. Beaches are lovely too. A hire car is a must; the villa is an ideal base to explore further afield - routes to the south coast beaches are well worth the journey & the drive to Balos beach is a must, as long as you don't mind a rough road and a walk!

Kevin was really helpful & helped us to sort a hire car for our stay.

Absolutely Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

Apart from the amazing view of the White Mountains which constantly changed with the weather and the time of day, this villa is very well equipped and comfortable. The listing was pretty accurate and everything listed was in the villa and more. The owner was very approachable and concerned that visitors had an enjoyable trouble free stay. I would certainly recommend this villa to others for a relaxing holiday close to some very good restaurants and not far from the beach. And if you don't like sand you can just kick back and enjoy the more than adequate pool.
