Villa Dafni

Rethymno, Crete
2 km

Villa Dafni is a luxury villa with a private pool and stunning sea views, beautifully located in the pretty village of Gerani and able to easily accommodate 8 guests in 4 bedrooms. Finished to the highest standard, air conditioned and surrounded by manicured gardens with flowers and lawn, this is the perfect property for a special holiday in Crete. The property enjoys the most stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea and is located just 800m away from the village of Gerani (with traditional tavernas and minimarket) as well as less than 2.5km away from the beach. Sit on the balcony enjoying the views, or prepare a delicious charcoal grilled dinner, or take a stroll along the alleys of the village: Villa Dafni will be the perfect frame for a holiday to remember.  

Inside, the villa is set over 2 floors and is fully air-conditioned in all the areas. Particular attention has been given to the quality of the furnishing, to the design (traditional yet modern) and to the feeling of light and air. On the ground floor there is a spacious open plan living room with a dining area and fully equipped kitchen, opening straight to the pool/sea facing terrace. There are comfortable sofas, satellite TV, DVD player, fireplace and the kitchen (purposely built for Villa Dafni) has all the essential for a self-catering holiday including oven, cooking rings, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine (in a dedicated storage room). On the ground floor there is also a double bedroom located next to a family shower room. The further 3 bedrooms are located on the upper floor. They are respectively 2 doubles and 1 twin, once again beautifully finished and air-conditioned. Two of them (one double and one twin) share a family bathroom with a bathtub, while the last double bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with a bathtub. All the bedrooms open straight to panoramic terraces offering breathtaking views to the sea, perfect for relaxing or reading a book.

Also the outdoor areas of Villa Dafni have been designed to impress. The large private pool measures 9m x 5m (depth 1m to 1.6m) and has a separate section for children (0.6m deep). It is set within well cared gardens, providing a further sense of peace and relaxation, with colourful flowers, scented shrubs, and olive trees. It is the perfect place to enjoy the views of the sun going down, hearing the sound of the crickets accompanied by the gentle breeze through the trees. 8 comfortable sunbeds are provided for the guests, together with parasols and outdoor dining facilities for the lovers of al-fresco dining (barbecue, table, chairs). The terraces and the gardens offer stunning, unobstructed views over the Mediterranean Sea.
