This villa is ideal for vacation for 3 families, there are three autonomous 2 floor houses. Kids beds can be provided upon request. We were meet with very generous compliment included bread, cheese, olives, wine and other great staff. All rooms are well equipped with all technics, including washing machine, microwave, grill for sandwiches and coffee machine. Everything looked exactly like on photos. Villa has a spectacular view upon Perama. Cleaning of the pool and backyard is made daily, and cleaning inside houses is one per 3 days with changing towels. It is located ideally for exploring the northern par of Crete, but it is necessary to rent a car. Our vacation was just perfect, thanks to Valia and Yanis! Вилла Дафни идеальна для отпуска 3х семей, там 3 отдельных и полностью автономных двухэтажных номера, бассейн, место для барбекю и отдельный стол для завтраков. Все выглядит в точности как на фотографиях. Мы отдыхали составом из 2 семей с детьми (3 и 10 месяцев) и одной парой без детей. Для деток нам предоставили классные детские кроватки и стульчики чикко. В качестве приветственного комплимента нас встречал поистине роскошный стол (а приехали мы заселяться поздно ночью из-за задержанного рейса)! Вино, сыр, колбаса, хлеб, вода, фруктовая корзина, рахат лукум, оливки и оливковая паста, мед. И это было в каждом из трех номеров! То, что нужно для усталых и голодных путников. Каждый день у нас убирали на территории - выносили мусор из общественных зон, чистили бассейн. Раз в три дня полная уборка номеров и замена полотенец. В каждом домике микроволновка, бутербродница, плита, чайник, телевизор, кофе, сахар, куча нужной посуды - в общем, все, что нужно для готовки. Первое время мы готовили, а потом открыли для себя прекрасную доставку из ресторана, которая за 15 минут в среднем доставляет вкусную и недорогую еду - порции огромные, греческий салат 4 евро, пицца/паста/салаты/сувлаки - все, что угодно. В пешей доступности маленький и нетуристический городок Перама - там есть небольшие супермаркеты, ресторанчики и кафе, но выбор скудноват, прямо скажем. Но зато Перама расположена посередине северной части Крита и отсюда одинаково удобно добираться до Ретимно, Ханьи, Ираклиона. В 15 минутах езды классный пляж Spilies - очень красивый, между двух скал, галька и волны. Если любите спокойные пляж с песочком и кристально чистой водой - примерно в 20 минутах езды прекрасный городок Бали и 4 бухточки с песчаными пляжами. Мы прекрасно провели время на этой вилле и с удовольствием приедем еще - красиво, удобно и любая просьба исполняется. Мы несколько часов пользовались услугами няни, которую нам порекомендовали.

We were warmly welcomed by Yannis on our arrival - he came to collect us after I rang him as we were unable to find the exact location of the villa - be aware that the listing here is in English script but in Greek script on a sign off the road there! The appartment is a beautiful wood furnished stone maisonette in a terrace of three overlooking the pool and an amazing vista over the local village and out to the coast. We enjoyed meeting the other guests staying there for the week with us, and this was important for us, so we felt lucky. We were able to get some good trip ideas from the other guests who'd been there longer than us, like a local restaurant and beach which weren't mentioned by the owners or Valia, and also what to avoid. We also discovered the local town was mainly cafes with locals hanging out, and not touristy at all: a supermarket, a few shops and one taverna owned by a very friendly woman and very good value, very simple and delicious food just a short walk down at the near end of town. Panormo was the nearest tourist place - and beautiful. We used our Lonely Planet and sat nav to get around, it's not great for anxious drivers! So you definitely need a car and you need to want peace and quiet rather than tourist/party areas. Rethymno seemed a mix of party town and upmarket harbour area. Valia was very available and the hosts were a phone call away so we felt taken care of. We would definitely go back to this place, maybe with friends/family to share the place, though we also enjoyed meeting new people.
