Great villa and great host!

5 of 5
The villa is absolutely lovely - very comfortable and relaxing to stay in. The pool is beautiful and great to cool off in in the July heat! The villa is also really well located for exploring the western part of Crete and you will certainly not run out of things to do (including visiting the various stunning beaches). Manolis is a brilliant host. He made sure we had everything we needed including helping with arrangements such as a trip to the Samaria gorge and restaurant suggestions etc. Overall we had a fantastic stay and thank you very much to Manolis.

Beautifully appointed villa with stunning views of the sea and memorable sunsets.

5 of 5
We had a wonder week at Keramoti Villas. Great location for exploring Elafonissi beach and area. The villa exceeded expectations with a beautiful infinity pool and we were well taken care of by the team. Added plus is the possibility to order in dinner from the local taverna. Highly recommended.
