Overview

About the property

fully equiped apartment close to the beach with shared pool with sea view

Surroundings

Between Agia Pelagia and Ligaria. Two calm, sparkling clean beaches cooled down by the clear blue that stretches before them. Just a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Heraklion, the Keramos complex with the six separate areas of accommodation, gazes from high up into the splendour of the sea and the tranquillity of the surrounding Cretan landscape, wild and hospitable all at once. From the organised exterior but also from all interior spaces, the view sprawls uninterrupted, beckoning for exploration and relaxation.

Sunlit as its name states, in shades of orange, generous size of 48 square metres, the apartment Ilios is another hospitable, comfortable and functional accommodation for a family up to 4 people. The spacious bathroom with clean lines and choice comforts, among them the fluffy towels with the logo of the complex and the full kitchen with all the necessary utensils, dinnerware and appliances, have transformed this small apartment into a small holiday house with a view to the sky blue of the pool and the deeper blue of the sea.

Outdoor area:

A green fragrant garden full of fresh herbs to season your food. Two blooming lemon trees for a juicy taste of life. A brick BBQ functional and equipped for tasty creations. A big table for the breakfast hours laid with suggestions of Cretan diet, or, for lunch or dinner, rich with tastes we made here together. The sky blue pool, just as generous in its dimensions, keeps company to our moments and invites us for one more dive with a view of the blue of the sea that stretches majestic before us.

Massage and Gym:

Claire, a teacher of music and specialising in the sound massage by Peter Hess, will take on to lead you into the world of relaxation and well being that she knows so well. The placing of special sonar utensils on specific point of the body achieves a deep relaxation, and self-therapy from high levels of stress and the disharmony between body and spirit.

In the choices for relaxation and well being, prominent position is given to the ‘After sun treatment, a deep hydrating therapy with a mask from fresh Cretan yoghurt and the ‘Traditional raki massage, a ritual of invigoration and rejuvenation.

What’s more, in the specially designed gymnasium of the Keramos you can exercise uninterrupted, following your programme.

In Crete hospitality is sacred. It is registered as genetic information. It’s part of everyday life for the people of Crete. It is with this hospitable disposition that George and Claire created the Keramos . It is with this hospitable heart that George and Claire welcome you. With a genuine smile. With knowledge and experience of all they owe and want to offer their guests.

Talk with George about the way you would like to get here. Ask him about anything concerning ways of access. George will wait for you at the airport or the port, if so arranged. Alternatively, he will take care to have a vehicle of your choice at your disposal, at the prearranged time and place, at the best possible price.

House rules:

Absolutely no smoking inside the apartment!

Please use the nearby shower before entering into the swimming pool!

Please respect the place and keep it clean

Please keep the noise down and respect the calmness of the area

Please dont throw papers in the toilet

**** Some info of the near bays ***

The beautiful and calm gulf of LYGARIA in only 400m away. It is a lovely narrow stretch of sand with calm and warm crystal clear waters. Watersports, scuba diving, sea beds, super markets and fish tavernas make this spot one of the most famous in the area.

The AGIA PELAGIA sandy bay is about 2 Km away. It is protected from the north winds, and the sea is almost always calm.

AGIA PELAGIA village has developed around its shores, so that's where you'll find many of the tavernas and cafeterias. In the center of Agia Pelagia you will find a super market, tourism offices, pharmacy, an ATM, tourist and souvenir shops and the taxi stand.

There are many restaurants and tavernas featuring Cretan, Greek or international cuisine, and all have a beautiful view of the sea. As you dine in Agia Pelagia, you can also partake of the wonderful scenes around you, and snap these memories into a treasured photo album: the various shades of the rippling sea, the cute little kid building a sand castle, the old fishing boats anchored in the bay, the fishermen preparing their nets for the night's labour!

Beautiful and peaceful, non crowded neighborhood

Just 15 to 20 min drive from the airport. The place has a secure private parking for your car.

Great little apartment with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The place was clean and everything we needed was provided. They even provided a pack-n-play, high chair, and pool toys for our 1 year old. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, and we could sometimes hear our neighbours, but we still had good sleeps.

Beautiful apartment and view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week and it was great. The whole building and the grounds are lovely and very well maintained. Our apartment was well appointed with ample room for the two of us. It was very clean, there was plenty of hot water and the bed was comfortable. The view was spectacular. We cooked some and the kitchen had all the items we needed. George was very helpful and attentive to our needs and we appreciated that. We enjoyed the little town in which the apartment is located. The apartment is in a good place to drive to other points on the island. We would definitely stay here again.

Superbe semaine crétoise!

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour en Crète a été parfait, du début à la fin.

Nous avons profité de la vue magnifique donnant sur la mer Egée.

Rien ne manque dans la location: tout est pensé pour que l'on s'y sente bien.

Le beau temps et les nombreux lieux de visite nous ont permis de découvrir un endroit vrai, riche et encore authentique.

George nous a accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse et de professionnalisme.

Il a été de bons conseils et nous a guidés vers les sites les plus intéressants.

Il a su nous faire partager les valeurs de son pays et, plus particulièrement, celles de son île.

Parler anglais à des Français peu polyglottes, c'était parfois très cocasse!! Peu importe, nos échanges ont toujours été agréables et on a ri.... surtout après le Raki qui a fait rêver: chanter en Grec, danser le Grec .. il ne reste plus qu'à le parler!

Et que dire de Claire? Elle pâtisse le Lemon Pie comme personne!!! MERCI à vous 2 pour vos sourires. Et... bon séjour en France! Hervé et Sylvie

Lovely apartment for a sunny spring break

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous week in George's great villa/apartment complex. The views are stunning and the apartment had everything you would need (sunshine included) and was immaculately clean. George is a fantastic host and was often nearby with advice (and raki!) if we wanted anything. I would heartily recommend any of the apartments and would love to come back one day.
