Dafnes Village

Allure Luxury Villa is located at a privileged location just outside the village of Dafnes, in the south of Heraklion in Crete. At a top of a hill is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, while it endorses panoramic views of the Mediterranean sea, the mountains, the city Heraklion and the magnificent Cretan countryside.

Dafnes is 18 km from Heraklion town south by the national road, central to the Heraklion region. A proud Cretan village, sits along a ridge line looking over the foothills of Mountain Psiloritis, surrounded by gently sloping valleys. It is an agricultural centre busy producing sultanas, grapes, wine, spirits, vegetables and olive oil. The name comes from daphni which means laurel. This is a tree that was growing in the chapel of the village.


Crete is the island of history, myths, legends and the most diverse nature in the Mediterranean. Crete presents itself, on the one hand, wild, lively and dreamy. And on the other hand, she calls you to experience her diverse history in the museums, excavation sites and monasteries to experience and feel the time from the distant antiquity of Minoan kings to Venetians, the Bizantine and the Ottomans right through to the present day.


Crete - the island of contrasts: sunlight and sea, high mountains and deep gorges, rolling hills replete with olive trees and vineyards, romantic fishing villages and wide miles of beaches, simple and inviting. Something for everyone.
