Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Geropotamos - Villa Rosso Karrubo

3 bedroom villa with 50 sqm pool and panoramic views

Villa Rosso Karrubo is approved by Greek Tourism Organization with license number: 1041K133K3128701.

Villa Rosso Karrubo is a 150 sq.m three-story brand new villa, ideal for people who look for holidays away from the usual tourist areas but also to be close to the beach and living areas!

It is located in a private land of 2,000 sq.m on the outskirts of Keramota village, 14 km away from the well known beaches of Panormo village.

The exact location of the villa which is actually on a hill overlooking the small village, offers to our guests the advantages of full privacy in all the outdoor areas, unique panoramic views from the surrounding area till the sea and total quietness!

Furnished in a combination of romantic and minimalist touches, the villa can accommodate 6 people in beds and up to 8 people if it is necessary.

The villa is separated into two independent parts. The first part is the main house (100 sq.m) which has two floors with two bedrooms and the second part is the apartment (50 sq.m) with one bedroom on the lower level which has independent entrance from the garden.

Both parts are fully equipped and independent from each other and they can only be booked as one villa, offering an advantage of more privacy between a group of friends or families.

Entering the main house on the ground floor there is a spacious open plan area which consisting of the living room with a fireplace, a satellite HDTV and Playstation4, the indoor dining area, one small office desk, one WC and a fully equipped kitchen of top quality fixtures and appliances.

The living room area has direct access to the main balcony where you can find an outdoor big dining table.

Reaching to the first floor from the stairs, there are two bedrooms, one with double bed and the other one with two single beds. Both bedrooms have air condition and access to balcony with a small coffee table. Between these two bedrooms there is the main bathroom with bath and shower.

Finally on the level of the garden and the pool, you will find the independent apartment which has one bedroom with double bed, one bathroom with shower and an open plan area with a fully equipped kitchen, a sofa with HDTV and an indoor dining table. The apartment has direct access to the garden-pool area.

Outdoors there is almost 1,000 square meters organised fenced area with many facilities and spots for relaxing, unique beautifully landscaped aromatic herbs, flowers and trees!

More specifically in the outdoor area you will find a sitting area on the veranda, an organised barbecue area with dining table under a pergola, a 50 sq.m private swimming pool with sun beds and umbrellas which also contains a children’s pool, a fenced parking area for many cars and enough space covered with grasses in order for young children to play with safety.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits of Villa Rosso Karrubo according my opinion are:

- Outstanding panoramic mountain and sea views.

- Spacious outdoor areas with high construction quality.

- Full privacy in the outdoor areas.

- Total quietness surrounded by nature.

- “Away from it all” but close to the beach and living areas where you can find everything!

- Designed for both families or couples offering more privacy between your own group because of the independent apartment on the garden level.

- The two small but great traditional taverns which you can reach on foot in the village of Keramota.

- The opportunity to interact with real traditional Cretan people to feel their hospitality and explore the island away from tourist areas in one of the rare parts of the island where the traditions and its values are passed down from the past!

- The hospitality of the owner and his family who will be on hand for advice and information if need be.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Copied from TripAdvisor:

This villa looks even more beautiful and spacious than in pictures. There are really large pool with cooling water and beautiful views on mountains and small village from the outside and balconies of villa. Beautiful sunsets are every evening guests because the location on the top of hill. Villa is definately 5 star and fantastic!

You can hear local voices (children, domestic animals) from the near village and see local doings as well, so you can enjoy pure cretan village life. Villa location is endeed far from all but near for everything. Villa is situated in the small village not big resort, car is strongly recommended, the capital of crete is 60 minutes to drive and nearest centre Rethymnon is 30 minutes to drive. We enjoyed Bali resort which has just 15 minutes drive away from villa. Bali has several tavernas, tourist shopping points and sandy beach. Really interested Melidion cave is about 10 minutes to drive from villa.

Villa itself has the main side with two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, toilet and living area, all rooms have air-conditioner and all necessary equipment. Villa has apartment side as well and there You´ll find kitchen, toilet and bedroom. We were travelling with three children ages 9, 3 and 3 month, also grandparents travelled with us. So, our grandparents lived on apartment side which has sepparate entrance. Outside area is spacious and well cared and of course our children loved the pleasurable pool.

Rooms are beautifully designed and decorated, all rooms, furniture and equipment are clean and new.

Villa owners Irene and Rocco were really helpful and hospitable, also Kostas, the villa renter, helped us with everything we need.

Of course if You look resort life then its not suitable and if you are travelling with children You need an extra look for their safety because of pool and villa location (on the top of hill).

We had memorable and fantastic stay in Villa Rosso Karrubo! Thanks for Kostas, Irene and Rocco!

We loved our stay in Rosso Karubo villa.

the house is a bit further away from the coast, but not too much, so you feel away from the touristic noisy areas but still short distance to Panormos coast. Even not too far from Rethymno, we had dinner there and didn't feel the travel back was that long.

Because you are a bit high up in the mountains, the view is wonderful, from every room of the house, the many terraces and of course the swimming pool.

The house is spotlessly clean, the beds are very confortable, a bit hard which I like. The main bedroom is very spacious and with lots of space in a big wardrobe which means you can settle properly and hide the suitcases.

The house was cleaned twice a week, as was the swimming pool

There is AC in every room which comes handy in the summer.

The owner Irene is super nice and welcoming, she had prepared a Cretan welcome snack which was much appreciated as we arrived late with children.

Speaking of children, there were board games, and outdoor toys which came handy, there is a basketball ring too.

The wifi works great, although not that well in the upstairs bedrooms, but elswewhere very well, even at the pool.

There is plenty of outdoor space, to park cars, play around, and have dinner outside.

It's a great villa and service that I thoroughly recommend.

Thank you Irene for welcoming us that well

Vue exceptionnelle, maison confortable et piscine formidable

  • 5 of 5

La maison est située en face d'un petit village, au bord d'une vallée, avec vue sur la mer et les montagnes.

La maison (un studio au RDC et une maison avec 2 chambres au dessus) est moderne et confortable. Clim très appréciable.

La piscine est vraiment belle et de belle taille. Il y a aussi un panneau de basket.

La mer (Panormo) et est à 20 minutes

Le supermarché (Perama) à 10 minutes

The villa is located on a hill overlooking the small village of Keramota which is 14 km away from the closest sandy beaches in Panormo area and 8 km from Perama town where you can find everything that you might need like shops, taverns and supermarkets.

The whole surrounding area is in a quiet natural environment and even though the living areas are close, you can feel “away from it all”!

In Keramota village there are two small but great taverns which you can reach on foot.

The location is giving you the advantage of staying in one of the most traditional areas of Crete where people are still growing up with the traditional values and the real traditions!

Take advantage of the location and explore the nearby villages of Melidoni, Margarites, Eleftherna, Zoniana and Anogia where you can interact with real Cretan people and feel the Cretan hospitality in the highest level. Around those villages you will also be able to see some unique sightseeing spots like the Idaion Andro cave where the Zeus was born according to Greek Mythology, the Zoniana village museum with candle statues and the cave “Sfendoni”, the well known cave of Melidoni, the traditional pottery shops in Margarites, the Ancient city of Eleftherna and many more.

On your arrival we will provide you detailed information of the area and what really worth a visit according to your interests!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
