Exceptional Old Venetian Home, strategically placed at the heart of the medieval town of Rethymno, with charismatic interior/ exterior spaces and cutting edge amenities that reflect artistic elegance and respectful renovation. Style enthusiasts will love the way in which the architect has re-invented the Venetian element of the house in order to attract international audience, combining contemporary lifestyle with boutique hoteliering.

Daphne Villa is an old castle house offering a glimpse into the historical background f the island, perfect for experiencing the cultural side of Crete enjoying luxury comfort, attention to detail items and airy atmosphere. It has been recently upgraded with respect to its historical background boasting a private terrace, a private heated pool and personally handpicked furniture. Located right at heart of the historical centre, it puts you within your arms reach of all of the city's offerings, the attractive medieval sites and the vibrant life of a modern city. It offers comfortable accommodation for up to 4 people in a quite minimalistic scenery, while the highlight of the villa is the outdoor lounge sitting area, as well as the outdoor heated pool, found nowhere else in the preserved Rethymno Old Town.

Within 3-5 minutes walking, you can reach the fort 'Fortezza', the Venetian Harbor, the Venetian Lotzia. It's close to the lovely beach of Rethymno, famous for its golden sand and crystal clear waters, but also the city's shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars.
