Villa Despina 2 is a perfect location for relaxing in a peaceful environment but within easy reach of civilisation. The view is absolutely breathtaking.
The house has all the facilities needed, and the hosts Michalis, Despina and their family took really excellent care of us. The house and pool were cleaned regularly and we were able to pick fresh fruits from the garden. In addition they invited us to eat at their authentic cretan tavern down the road.
This is a place that we would love to cone back to.
We stayed at this lovely house at June 2017 and we had a great time.The villa is very clean and the swimming pool too.Also the garden is excellent and the family who owned it also are great.The sea view is fabulous and we had watching the beautiful Sunday everyday.I recommend this property.
The fabulous Villa Despina 2 is located in Asomatos village about 10 minutes drive from the resort of Plakias in southern Crete.
The villa is maintained to an excellent standard. It has 4 large bedrooms : 2 doubles and 2 with a double and single bed, all with air con. The villa is equipped with everything you might need for the holiday - dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, microwave etc. Towels are provided including beach towels. The pool is also a good size to enjoy a splash around. The garden is watered and well maintained and during our visit there were fresh grapes on the vines. The bedrooms are downstairs and living area is upstairs with a large patio to enjoy the views which are amazing looking out to sea and facing westwards for memorable sunsets. At night with limited light pollution the stars are amazing too!
The family who own the villa run a taverna about 5 minutes drive away. Would recommend eating there as the food is delicious. The family came to the villa most days to clean the pool, change the towels and the whole villa was cleaned twice a week. The family are really lovely and happy to help with any queries or requests.
A car is required for the villa but it is a perfect place to explore Crete and great for families and those wanting to avoid the larger resorts on the northern coast. Would recommend Souda beach just west of Plakias as well as Skinaria, both great for swimming and snorkelling. The coastal drive west to Hora Sfakian is dramatic and the boat trip to Loutro is a brilliant day trip. Also worth a visit is Hania and the nearby water park for kids (Limnoupolis). We loved eating at the Despina Taverna and at the Panorama restaurant close by in Myrthios with fantastic views down over the coast.
We had an absolutely brilliant holiday and could not fault the villa, or the service provided by the owners. Would highly recommend it!
The villa was exceptionaly clean. I recomend it to anyone that wants to spend his holiday at a beautiful place and get the most out of it.
the best reception, a very confortable home with swimming pool
a breathtaking view.,an nice aera,
We recommend this place for the best family vacations.
