About Villa Darina

 

Villa Darina is an award-winning Cretan villa surrounded by verdant olive and orange groves. It offers a stylish but rural idyll that provides the perfect peaceful haven to escape to. However, with easy access to local beaches and the historic town of Chania you are far from being out on a limb.

Villa Darina accommodates six guests in consummate comfort within its terracotta stone walls. Outside there’s a peaceful pool within a garden packed with fruit-laden citrus trees and fragrant herbs. Inside, natural wood, glass, and distinctive steel beams all combine to create a strikingly modern interior. The open plan design, by visionary architects Aristomenes & George Baroudakis, maximises the light and space within the villa.

The countryside views include the dramatic White Mountains beckoning in the distance. They are best appreciated from the spacious master bedroom, that takes up the whole first floor.

This villa in Crete is also suitable for those travelling with a larger party. Nearby you can also book either of the Villa Darina's neighbouring three-bedroom properties, Villa Alsos or Villa Esperido.
