About the property

4 bedroom villa with pool and panoramic views, 14 km away from the beach!

Villa Elisa is a 170 sq. m residence and totally refurbished in 2015 with superior design, touches of warmth and charm.

It is located in a quiet village called Keramota, offering full privacy and splendid views of sea and mountain. It is literally a hidden gem around the beauty and tranquility of a uniquely green landscape of olive trees and vineyards only 14 km away from the sandy beach of Panormo.

Totally isolated but close to everything, our villa offers full privacy to our guests and a variety of facilities for the whole family.

Furnished in a combination of vintage and luxurious touches, the three-storey villa can accommodate 8 people in beds and up to 10 people if it is necessary.

Entering the villa from the main entrance on the ground floor you will find a spacious open plan area with a fully equipped authentic kitchen, the vintage style living room area with satellite HDTV and the indoor dining table! From the living room area, you have direct access to the veranda which offers exceptional views of the landscape.

Reaching the first floor from the stairs, there are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms and one bathroom with bath and shower. Both bedrooms have a double bed and access to the balcony.

The lower floor of the villa can be accessed through stairs from the ground floor or it can be totally independent from the rest of the villa as it has also its own entrance. In the hall there is a sitting area with sofa and a small kitchenette with a fridge and small oven. On the same floor there are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with double bed and the other with 2 single beds. There is also a bathroom with shower.

Our magnificent outdoor area is one of the highlight of the villa. There is a 4,500 sq. m fenced organized area with many spots for relaxing, unique beautifully landscaped aromatic herbs gardens, flower gardens and trees!

More specifically our outdoor facilities include:

- 40 sq. m swimming pool with sun-beds, umbrellas and pool side tables

- Fully equipped charcoal barbecue area plus a wood oven, a sink and a fridge under a pergola

- A large outdoor dinning table next to the barbecue with views to the pool and the surrounding landscape

The whole outdoor area is totally private and fenced, offering 100% privacy to our guests!

Fantastic villa set up in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Elissa in August 2017 and had a fantastic time. The outside area is the main selling point for the villa. It has a good-sized pool and lots of sitting areas to sunbathe or escape to the shade. The garden is beautiful and it is full of fruit and vegetables which the owners Yiannis and Natasha are happy for you to pick and use. It is in a good location - lots of nice villages nearby including Anogia and Zoniana, and the busier town of Rethimno is only 30 minutes away. We would definitely go back to Villa Elissa!

Très beau et agréable jardin

  • 4 of 5

Très belles vacances passées dans cette villa. Nous étions 2 familles avec 5 enfants et les espaces intérieurs et extérieurs étaient totalement adéquats pour nous tous. Nous avons surtout profité des extérieurs : terrasse en hauteur offrant une très belle vue, jardin magnifique, très bien aménagé, environnement autour de la piscine tres agréable, cuisine extérieure où nous prenions notre petit déjeuner... A noter : la maison en altitude permet d'échapper aux fortes chaleurs et offre toute la journée un souffle d air rafraîchissant. Avec une touche spéciale qui a agrémenté considérablement notre séjour : la très grande hospitalité des propriétaires qui nous ont donné de nombreux conseils pour sillonner la région, trouver les endroits magnifiques et non touristiques.... Et nous ont fait rencontrer des villageois de Kermota, des gens adorables et tout aussi hospitaliers. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir !

Fantastisch huis voor een familievakantie

  • 4 of 5

We hebben 10 dagen in deze villa gezeten met 7 volwassenen en een baby van 9 maanden. Het huis ligt op een prachtige locatie met zicht op zee. Er is voldoende ruimte binnen en buiten. Zon of schaduw keus genoeg. Mooi kinderbedje met een goed matrasje en een een verstelbare kinderstoel. 8 km verder in Perama zijn supermarktjes en een bakker met heerlijk vers brood. Het was nog mooier geweest als het brood iedere dag vers bezorgd kan worden. Klein maar mooi strand in Panormo 16 km vanaf de villa. Gezellig stadje met veel betaalbare eettentjes. Bedjes op het strand waren goedkoop en incl. frisdrank. Lidl in Rethymnon aan de grote weg. Een avond ons laten verwennen door een kok. Goed eten en alles wordt netjes afgewassen en opgeruimd. Klein minpuntje is de stroom die vaak uitviel als meerdere apparaten tegelijk aanstaan. Is zelf te verhelpen als je weet waar alle schakelkasten staan.

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").
