Very Good Villa

5 of 5
We had a great stay in Villa Katerina. The owner, Manolis, was like a hotel concierge. From sending us directions from the airport to the villa, supplying fresh eggs, and being a source of useful local information. The villa is spacious, modern, and has everything one needs. With views over the village one way, and across countryside to the sea another way, the villa is in the perfect peaceful location. I highly recommend it. Andy Hennigan - May 2017

A serene refuge on the western coast of Crete

5 of 5
Villa Aretousa is a spacious, yet cosy, tastefully furnished with great attention to details and noble materials home in traditional Cretan style. It enjoys a privileged location on a mountainside facing the sea, immersed in the virgin landscape. You may contemplate the sun setting into the sea every evening from the terrace, enjoy local wine in the shade of lemon trees or jump into the swimming pool straight from the bedroom. The hosts are very welcoming and available. We had a basket of fresh local food upon arrival as well as a welcome dinner. As an epitome of Greek hospitality, Ioanna invited us to take part in the Easter feast. The only issue is that there is no short way to the sea and no beach in the immediate proximity. The very nice Elafonisi beach is within 25 minutes' drive from the villas. Also the internet connection lacked stability and speed. All in all, Keramoti villas is an excellent choice for those who seek to escape the fast-paced rhythm of urban life an have some days of calm in a native setting.
