Relax in peaceful surroundings  

This villa is a must if you are in Crete. Located just out of Heraklion...but still close enough to get to for sightseeing or dinner...this is the place to unwind on your holidays. A well furnished spacious house with great views and a fabulous sparkling blue pool...what more could you ask for?! The owner is extremely helpful...he can guide you to supermarkets, recommend and even book restaurants, introduce you to wineries and show you where to get the best ice cream in Heraklion!! Book your stay now!!

Lovely holiday!  

We had a wonderful time at Villa Despina. Met at the airport by our host Alexandros, taken to the villa, and throughout our visit given very helpful advice. We received delicious local produce of fresh eggs, grapes and honey along with a generous welcome pack for breakfast. The villa was immaculate and cleaning and fresh linen provided twice during a stay of 8-9 days. Alexandros could not have been a better or more attentive and helpful host. Thank you very much.

Meet your host, Alexandros
