Villa Nafsika, Crete, Greece, offers a 20% off couples’ discount perfect for honeymooners
Say ‘Greek islands’ and we think Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper in Mamma Mia, singing and toe-tapping their way down those quaint cobbled streets and into those rustic stone houses (we know, we’ve got to lay off the musicals). So you can imagine the goofy grin on our faces when we spotted Crete Escapes’ Villa Tigga – which matches our Abba-soundtracked honeymoon daydreams and then some, and comes with a 20% couple’s discount!
The Kokkino Chorio stone villa packs not only that so-Sophie-and-Sky look, but an outdoor dining terrace, wooden pergola, private pool and a sea view that will have you pulling on your bikini as soon as look at it. But the best part has got to be that with its £524 per week (£262 per person) couples’ discount price, it’s actually the budget choice in Crete Escapes’ triplet of couples’-offer villas.
Next there’s Villa Leodis over in Plaka, just a 15-minute flip-flop away from Almirida’s sandy beach, or five minutes from Plaka’s tavernas and mini markets. No stony walls here: it’s all about chic modern open-plan space, complete with en-suite master bedroom that opens right onto the terrace of your very own pool. The couples’ 20% discount on this one takes you to £600 per week (£300 per person). Bargainous.
Or if you’re willing to shell out a little bit more (yes, you can justify it – it’s your honeymoon), there’s Villa Nafsika (pictured) – crammed with an almost embarrassing amount of indulgence, right from climate-controlled underfloor to sky-high oak-beamed ceiling. We’re talking four bedrooms (where do you feel like sleeping tonight, hubby?), fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor barbecue area, dining area, lounge, sun terrace, lawn and, of course, pool, set in the ultimate privacy of tranquil Litsarda, where the White Mountain vista peeks over the trees.
Totter home from the renowned local pizzeria, slip under the sheets of one of your ridiculously opulent bedrooms, and dream of what you’ll do with the cash you saved when you paid just £840 per week (£420 per person). A cookery class in Vamos? Dinner at Oinos Elaion, Kefalos? Or just lying back and soaking up some rays on the beaches of Apokoronas? And relax.
