A beautiful villa in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Daedalos is a beautiful villa in a stunning location. The villa was very clean and was exactly as described. The gardens are beautiful with plenty of areas for quiet relaxation whilst looking out at a truly magnificent view of the bay and the mountains. The owners are lovely people who offer exceptional customer service. We could not have been looked after better. We would not hesitate in recommending this lovely villa to our friends.

Luxurious villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa so much we often stayed home all day and lazed by the pool, admiring the wonderful views. It's a perfect spot for a spell of total "surrender yourself" relaxation, and evenings on the terrace watching the sun go down were just perfect. When we did go out, the restaurants in the village made us incredibly welcome and we ate and drank very well.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

Villa Daedalos exceeded our expectations. The owners live there for some of the year and it shows. It is very well equipped and much thought has been given to make sure you have a relaxing holiday.

The absolute highlight has to be the stunning views. Views over the coastline down to Almyrida with the White Mountains as a backdrop. It was hard to drag ourselves away to explore the surrounding area.

Terraces surrounding the villa, are equipped with good quality loungers, seating and tables. The outdoor kitchen (Pizza oven and BBQ) is fully equipped making eating in, whilst enjoying the most amazing sunsets, an absolute pleasure and in fact our (adult) offspring commented, these were their favourite meals of the holiday.

Thanks has to go to the owners, the Bolarakis family, who were a pleasure to deal with. This was definitely a favourite Villa for us.

Where the gods would like to live

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is simply a must. If you like to spend perfect holidays with or without kids, family or lovely friends on a unique spot, here is one. 360° of stunning views with either mountains or the beautiful seaside. All promises are kept. The villa is in a timeless design and its style fits perfectly to nature and all human needs. You can live with the sun all day long. Inside there is nothing left to hasard and the fine details make smile gentle people.

The owners are very friendly and you really feel save.

The village is alive and there are plenty of nice places to discover without a car.

The region of Chania is certainly one of the most beautiful.

This is a place to fall in love with and our next stay is planned.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The view alone was worth it all! The owners were most accommodating and made sure we had everything needed to truly appreciate this immaculate villa. Our two young children enjoyed the play set, running around the property and of course the beautiful pool. If we never left the villa our vacation would have been wonderful. Nonetheless, the village (Plaka) was only 1 kilometer away and has some greater places for dinner. The beach was only an 8 minute drive and has great places for lunch and dinner that are right on the water. Villa Daedalos is truly paradise found in Crete!
