Visitors in self-catering accommodation in Tavronitis can stock up on fresh local produce at several small, local shops in the area, an experience in itself. There are also several restaurants down along the beach in Tavronitis, where visitors can sample traditional Greek food and occasionally see traditional Greek dance performances.

The villa is exactly as it is represented in its advertising on the website. The area around the pool is ideal for relaxing in the sunshine. All the rooms were light and airy and the whole property well furnished and beautifully clean. The wonderful view of mountains in the distance was a bonus. There are two supermarkets and several tavernas within a short walking distance of the property - all very friendly and helpful. A trip into Chania by taxi cost us €15, which was really good value. Kostas and Elaine were extremely helpful prior to and during our stay. We would definitely recommend the villa and area to anyone wanting a completely relaxing break.

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.
