Oozing traditional Cretan charm, the Papadakis Villas are a fabulous choice for a holiday combining relaxation with fun.


Papadakis Villas form a compact complex of haphazardly arranged, attractive apartments. Splashes of ultramarine on the doors, balustrading and sunbeds contrast with the whitewashed walls of the one-storey buildings and the verdant tropical greenery breaks the scene further. The family-run apartments are set on a hillside and ooze charm; rooms are cool, comfy and cosy, each with a balcony or terrace of its own to ensure you don't miss a moment of the sunshine. If you're not enchanted by these, take a look at the fantastic views. A pretty pool directly adjacent to the café, where breakfast is served, is a great place to sky-gaze and count your blessings.

The friendly owners, Kostas and Maria are on hand to oversee the smooth running of the apartments and to help whenever they can. They are keen to protect the natural beauty of the surroundings and insist on eco-friendly cleaning. They regularly host barbecue nights with Cretan music and dance. Cold beers, tasty food and fab cocktails are served at the bar, The Fat Frog, where it's said the fun often goes on until sunrise.

The location of the Papadakis is ideal for trips into Koutouloufari and Hersonissos, being just 10 minutes from both. Here you'll find shops, bars and restaurants aplenty to ring the changes, and sample some of the local specialities and nightlife.
