Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Daedalos sits at the top of a hill with stunning views across the bay and down to the village of Almyrida. The Bolarakis family, who were charming and very helpful, have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and easy as possible, even providing a mobile phone with a Greek SIM card for local calls and a telescope to make the most of those views! The villa was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped. A welcome basket of fruit, fresh bread, milk and wine was provided and very much appreciated after a day's travelling! The gardens are beautiful and fragrant with plenty of different seating areas to provide either sun or shade but, from wherever you sit, you can still enjoy the views. There is even a small swing and a seesaw for the children and an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue and pizza oven. The infinity pool was a little chilly in October but would be wonderful in the heat of the summer. We could happily have spent every day lazing around the villa, but we did tear ourselves away to explore the towns of Chania and Rethymon (both of which were lovely) and the Palace of Knossos.

The quaint village of Plaka is a short distance away and has several tavernas/cafes and two mini-markets which sell all the basic necessities (we didn't need to venture to the larger supermarket during our week's stay). Almyrida has more shops, restaurants and a beach with shallow water, ideal for younger children.

In summary, Villa Daedalos was, for us, the perfect villa. We do a lot of travelling and there are only a few properties to which we would consider returning. Villa Daedalos is definitely one of them.

Thank you to the Bolarakis family!

A wonderful house with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Daedalus and we had a such a wonderfully relaxing time. The house itself is fabulous, with everything a family could want. But for me it's the stunning view you wake to every morning that makes this a very special place.

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.
