Villa Location
Due to its elevated position, Villa Danae Red secures wonderful views of the Aegean Sea. A short stroll downhill takes you to the charming village of Koutouloufari. There are several traditional tavernas and restaurants for you to enjoy. For something livelier, the seaside resort of Hersonissos and its diverse choice of places to eat, drink and shop are just 1 mile away. Our Villa Danae Blue is next door, making these houses a good choice for large groups.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Just 2 minutes' walk downhill from Villa Danae Red is a mini market and some souvenir shops in the village of Koutouloufari. For a more varied choice there's a supermarket 1 mile away, along the main road in the seaside resort of Hersonissos. There's a local market day in Agios Nikolaos every Wednesday morning and the market in Lerapetra is on Saturday morning. The markets predominantly sell local fruit, vegetables and cheeses as well as linens and some clothes.

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 from the villa. You'll be spoilt for choice with bars and restaurants to choose from along the waterfront where you can sit and watch the world go by.


The closest beach to Villa Danae Red is Star Beach, which is a mix of sand and pebbles, along with 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 in Hersonissos, you have 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

If you travel further east, you'll reach the seaside town of Agios Nikolaos, which is 40 minutes' drive from the villa. 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 upmarket 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, being around 50 minutes' drive from Villa Danae Red.


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.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Villa Danae Red Customer Reviews

Wendy McKee, 11-Jul-2018

We have stayed in quite a few Villa Plus villas over the years and we can say that this was, without doubt, the best villa we have had through yourselves. It was beautifully maintained and cleaned, even down to the cutlery in the kitchen draw being sorted into neat stacks. We had requested a 'food hamper' to be there on arrival, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that there were even dish cloths and scourers already there, we have had to shop for these items in the past on our first day. An excellent villa and host. A place where we would love to holiday again. Well done Villa Plus for snapping up this villa for your customers.
