Daphnis Villas is located in the area of Pyrgos Psilonerou, Crete, 15 km west of Chania city (15-20 minutes driving). In a 200 m distance from the NATURA-protected beach, we find the Daphnis Villas complex.

Around the beach you can find the sea lilies in full bloom; while during the summer months, the Caretta-Caretta turtles are spawning. The beach is well-known for its crystal-clear water, where you can relax and enjoy swimming and diving. On the large beach, you can enjoy sunbathing in either isolation, or in spots that are fully organized with parasols, sun loungers, while coffee, drinks and food are also available.

The ideal location of Pyrgos Psilonerou, which is strategically located just three kilometers west of the center of Platanias, makes it easy to bask in the well-organized tourist facilities, as well as the lively nightlife of Platanias, one of the most popular resort destinations in Crete, while at the same time being able to provide the tranquillity and serenity that can only be found in West Crete and in a peaceful villa, like the ones at Daphnis Villas.

In the village of Maleme, located only 1 km away, you can find a fully-organized beach, taverns, pharmacy, ATM and super market.

The historical city of Chania is in a distance of 15 km, and you can get there by car, by bus or by taxi.

You can use Daphnis Villas as a base for visiting the major attractions in Crete. Its location, close to Chania airport and port, and a stone’s throw away from the national road in Crete that leads to the cities of Chania and Heraklio, is ideal to do exactly that.
