Villa Location
Villa Danae Blue is in an excellent location, with the authentic Greek village of Koutouloufari being a short walk downhill. There's a good choice of restaurants and tavernas dotted along the cobbled streets. Alternatively, the seaside resort of Hersonissos and its abundance of restaurants, shops and bars, as well as the fabulous Star Beach are just 1 mile away. Our Villa Danae Red is next door, making these houses great for large groups.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Just 2 minutes' walk downhill from Villa Danae Blue are some souvenir shops and a mini market in the village of Koutouloufari. There's a supermarket 1 mile away, along the main road in the seaside resort of Hersonissos. The local market in Agios Nikolaos is held every Wednesday morning and the market in Lerapetra is on Saturday morning. The markets sell everything from local fruit and vegetables, as well as cheese and olives.

Bars and restaurants

There's a good choice of tavernas in the laid back village of Koutouloufari, which are a short stroll from Villa Danae Red. The neighbouring village of Old Hersonissos is just 2 miles away, also on the hillside. Life here centres around the charming village square, with a choice of authentic Greek restaurants and cafes. Alternatively, the seaside resort of Hersonissos is just 5 minutes' drive away. There's an array of bars and restaurants to choose from along the waterfront where you can sit and watch the world go by.


Star Beach is the closest beach to Villa Danae Blue, which is a mix of sand and pebbles, as well as clear blue sea and a beach bar. In the height of season this beach is buzzing, with its foam parties and water sports. The laid back beach of Stalis is good for families, with its shallow waters and golden sand. There's also some tavernas and bars, plus its only 15 minutes' drive away.

Family fun

There is something for everyone at Hersonissos, including Watercity, which is a fun water park with slides, pools and a lazy river. There's also the action-packed Star Beach that has jet skis, scuba diving and banana boats, as well as a family area with pools and water slides.

Places of interest

The sophisticated town of Elounda is worth a visit. You can enjoy spectacular views of the coastline from one of the many waterfront restaurants, as well as the charming harbour. It makes a great day out and is around 50 minutes' drive from Villa Danae Blue. Further east is the seaside town of Agios Nikolaos, which is 40 minutes' by car. There's a small fresh water lake, as well as some tavernas and cafes. The small harbour is next door and has waterfront bars, along with chic boutiques and local shops. From here you can catch a boat and enjoy a trip to Spinalonga. This is a very small island and a popular tourist attraction in Crete, it's also known as the setting for the 2005 novel, The Island.


The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos. There is also the 9-hole course at the Elounda Porto Hotel.

Other activities and places of interest

For those looking for more cultural diversions, look no further than Heraklion, where the Minoan Palace of Knossos draws visitors from around the world. This was the most important and opulent of the Minoan Palaces excavated. It's the largest Bronze Age archaeological site in Crete and is considered Europe's oldest city. To get here, it's 40 minutes by car but well worth a visit.

Villa Danae Blue Customer Reviews

Philip Oakley, 16-Aug-2018

Danae Villa Blue was an excellent base for a wonderful holiday in Crete. The thought into the villa design was fantastic, from the mosquito nets on the windows to the security of the shutters. George the landlord was a true gentleman and very friendly like every single local we met. The Wi-Fi actually worked very well considering some warnings about Greek telecoms. Great sea view and would definitely recommend the welcome pack if you are arriving late. A place I would definitely go back to.

Scott Irving, 12-Oct-2017

The villa was very well finished and clean. We stayed as a group of 6 adults and had plenty space and glasses etc. The pool was a very good size as was the area around the pool. The outdoor table is shaded from mid-morning by the villa itself which is great for getting a bit of time out the sun for lunch. The pool area remains in the sun until late at night from first thing in the morning. Koutouloufari itself if a fantastic place to visit with lots of lovely authentic restaurants and small supermarkets. There is a larger supermarket only 5 minutes away if you have a car. I would absolutely recommend Danae’s villas.
