Villa Daphne is approved by Greek Tourism Organisation & managed by 'etouri vacation rental management'. The villa was named “Daphne” after the fragrant homonymous plant (laurel) which grows around the property and is used by local people to make tea or as a herb in traditional Cretan cuisine! If you believe that accommodation is a major factor in aiding a unique holiday experience then Villa Daphne is exactly what you are looking for! Built in 2006 and renovated mostly in the outdoors in 2014 and indoors in 2018, Villa Daphne can accommodate 10 people in beds. This outstanding property provides total privacy in both the indoor and outdoor area, surrounded by nature and at the same time is conveniently located very close to the beach and all kinds of shops!

About the neighbourhood
Villa Daphne has an amazing location for unforgettable holidays! Totally isolated and centred in the middle of a rural area abundant with olive trees it offers full privacy for those wishing to stay in a luxury accommodation away from it all! Simultaneously the villa is only 1.5 km away from the beach, living areas and Sfakaki market. Also found at a distance of 5 km are the well known tourist resorts 'Platanias' and 'Adelianos Kampos' where you can find supplies, amenities, services and entertainment! Finally the city of Rethymno is 10 minutes (12 km) away by car! The location gives you the advantage of quiet and private holidays engulfed in Cretan nature but close to everything!
How to get there
