Excellent hosts and comfortable villa
The good things: the villa is large with four large bedrooms,the owner is exceptionally friendly and welcoming. He owns the adjacent taverna which serves simple but tasty food and is good value.
Things which could be improved: there is a lack of kitchen equipment and crockery. We were a party of 8 and struggled. If you were 10 or 12 you’d certainly find it difficult. The property needs a table big enough to sit all guests outside with lighting. We ate inside every night because of the lack of this. The online listing mentions TVs and fridges in bedrooms and a sauna. We didn’t want or need any of these things but couldn’t find them either. Lastly the hydro massage shower did not work.
Despite all theses issues we enjoyed our stay and thank everyone at Villa Despina for their kindness.
Bellissima permanenza. Beautiful stay
La villa è molto accogliente, conforme all'annuncio, in posizione molto comoda per vedere la costa Sud. I proprietari sono molto cordiali. Molto adatta a famiglie con bambini. Molto vicino alla villa c'è una taverna gestita dalla proprietà dove abbiamo mangiato molto bene.
The villa is very welcoming, conforming to the announcement, in a very convenient position to see the South coast. The owners are very friendly. Very suitable for families with children. Very close to the villa there is a tavern managed by the property where we ate very well.
Large family holiday at Villa Despina
Just returned from a wonderful two week stay at Villa Despina. A very large villa with all the amenities you need, very clean and spacious. The views are amazing and completely private, the owners run the taverna next door and are very welcoming making you feel part of there family. Spent most nights there just for evening drinks, food is very nice aswell. Nice location to explore south of the island, plenty of nice beaches.
Fantastic 2 weeks with the family.
From the moment we arrived and were greeted with free drinks at the family taverna the holiday was a complete success.
We traveled with our son & wife, daughter & husband and our 5 grandchildren. The Villa accommodated all 11 of us, was well equipped and provided a good base for the southern beaches of Crete.
The well maintained private pool provided hours of entertainment for the grandchildren when not at the beach.
The family run taverna, only 50 metres from the villa, provided an excellent variety of delicious dishes at reasonable rates such that we dined there every evening of our stay.
The owners whole family were very friendly and could not do enough to make our whole stay most satisfactory. We almost became part of their family.
We would not hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone wanting a good time in southern Crete.
Dear Trevor and family,
Thank you very much for your great review
We are all very happy that we hosted you and we really had great moments together.
Hope to see you soon.
Villa Despina family
Just back from 2 weeks at villa despina 1. A fantastic holiday with a huge villa that gave 4 adults and 3 children loads of space to spread out in. Excellent hospitality shown by the family who also own the taverna next door.
Villa was well maintained, cleaned regularly and any issues dealt with quickly. A perfect base for exploring the south of the island and it's superb beaches.
We would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing holiday. We will be back!
The property is located in a great location at the South Rethymnon with nice sea and mountain view. The hours of relaxation at the swimming pool were amazing and we generally enjoyed very much our stay in this property. We recommend it.
