Positioned on a small hill, just like growing out of the ground amongst olive trees, these villas look like they where always a part of this beautiful landscape. Newly built out of natural local stone, wood and clay, Keramoti-Villas reflect our sensitivity and respect towards our unique natural environment.

Enjoy a truly unique and special experience of elegance and beauty at one of the few remaining unspoilt natural niches.

For those truly special holidays Keramoti-Villas is a promise!

The design of the villas had two major goals, first to make a comfortable and functional space that will meet the demands of the most discerning holiday makers for beauty and comfort, and second to integrate the villas in to the existing landscape so that they do not become obtrusive in anyway but rather give the feeling that they are part of the existing landscape.

In addition special care was made for the design of the outdoor spaces, with comfortable niches for entertaining or chilling out, for sunbathing or reading.

And to enhance all this we have carefully implemented our designs for grass and garden spaces, adding colour and vitality to the whole setting.

And to top of the experience, our villas are positioned on a slightly slopping hill, amongst olive trees and facing straight west, enjoying magnificent sea views and the most extraordinary sunsets. A marvellous show just in front of you.

Each of our villas is absolute private and has its own private swimming pool, designed to be enjoyed while marvelling at the amassing sea views. The impression created, while in our pools, that the pool and sea are mingling together is a very special effect of our design considerations.

All in all Keramoti Villas is an amazing place to enjoy the most memorable holidays with your loved ones.

Villa Ariadni's design was based on the concept of luxury, comfort, and elegance blended with functionality. Using natural earthly materials and offering a wonderful space to relax, to play and to entertain. At the same time consideration has been given to the respect of the traditional local architecture and the harmonic integration with the surrounding natural environment. With large garden areas on each side it blends naturally with the surrounding olive groves on the small hill where it is situated. The amassing infinity pool extends right in front of the terrace area offering the delight of its blue against the blue sea and blue skies stretching right beyond it. A place where the most colourful sunsets can be experienced. Built out of local natural stone, wood, and terracotta, it reflects a warm and familiar sense of hominess.

Oase der Ruhe

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im August 16 Tage in dieser wunderschönen Villa. Wer Ruhe sucht wird es hier lieben! Bilder und Beschreibung stimmen zu 100%. Klasse Pool! Die Betreuung durch Nico ist super. Immer ansprechbar. Wir hatten zweimal Stromausfall. Nico hat uns stets unaufgefordert informiert, wann das Problem behoben sein würde. Wir bekamen bei Anreise 4 Termine mitgeteilt, zu denen geputzt würde und Bettzeug wie Handtücher ausgetauscht würden. Auch das funktionierte einwandfrei. Die Damen und Herren, die sich um uns kümmerten waren unglaublich freundlich. Weil wir gerne olympische Spiele sehen wollten, aber kein deutsches Fernsehen bekamen, schickte uns Nico innerhalb von wenigen Stunden einen Techniker, der die Satellitenschüssel neu justierte und so für den Empfang von Deutschem Fernsehen sorgte. Das war wirklich toll! Das WLAN funktionierte dagegen nur im Schneckentempo. Für WhatsApp hat es gereicht. Viel mehr dann aber nicht.

Von den anderen Häusern haben wir nichts mit bekommen. Man hatte wirklich absolute Ruhe. Die muss man auch mögen, denn der Weg nach Kissamos, der nächsten etwas größeren Stadt ist weit. 45 Minuten Fahrt muss man rechnen und das durch die Berge. Es ist wirklich einsam gelegen. Von der Hochsaison bekommt man hier gar nichts mit. In der Ecke gibt es außer einigen Tavernen und ein paar nicht wirklich gut sortierten Mini-Markets nichts! Wir empfehlen daher direkt auf dem Weg vom Flughafen den ersten Großeinkauf!

Der bekannte Strand Elafonisi ist nur etwa 20 Minuten per PKW entfernt. Ein wirklich tolles Fleckchen Erde. Im Sommer allerdings sehr voll. Nur wenige Minuten vom Haus (rechts abbiegen Richtung Norden) gibt es eine einsame Bucht. Von der asphaltierten Straße muss man links in eine unbefestigte Straße abbiegen. Nur mutig runter fahren! Glasklares Wasser, Felsen auf die man Klettern und ins Wasser springen kann. Herrlich! Menschenleer, sogar im August. Badeschuhe sind aber empfehlenswert. Es handelt sich um eine Steinbucht. In Sfinari gibt es ebenfalls einen schönen Strand mit drei Tavernen. Auch nicht voll.

Wir können das Haus jedem empfehlen, der Ruhe sucht und nicht täglich ausgehen möchte.

The blue paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded the description. The location of the house is fantastic: It is surrounded by olive trees with a stunning view over the sea. The house is well maintained with a beautiful landscaped garden and a large pool. The equipment is well maintained. We were impressed by the great shine and friendly care by the manager before the trip and during the stay.

It absolutely requires a car, as the nearest small supermarket is 15 minutes away. There are several tavernas nearby where you can eat well. By car you can reach the beautiful sandy beaches of Elafonisi, Balos or Falassarna. There are secluded bays (not sandy!) in the immediate vicinity where you can go for a swim.

The nearest large towns Kissamos or Chania are worth a visit. In Kissamos (45 min.) there is a big supermarket and also other shops.

The always blowing fresh wind has let stand the summer temperatures well.

For those who love the solitude and peace this is the perfect stay - we would definitely recommend this house and would love to come back again.

Spacious, spotless clean and perfectly locatef

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in one of the Keramoti Villas in July 2016 (villa Ariadni; one out of five villas).

The villas are perfectly situated for a calm and relaxing vacation, as this western part of Crete is more or less hidden from the hordes. Just a few minutes from the villas we actually found a pebble beach where we were completely alone, and which was great for swimming and snorkelling. Very clean and safe. Nevertheless, the famous sandy beaches of Elafonissi and Fallassarna are also within a fair driving distance (~ 20 and 40 minutes, respectively) if you should prefer some more facilities.

The villa itself is very spacious, spotless clean and equipped with everything you need for a nice holiday. The large pool and beautiful outdoor area are facing the sea, and offers a spectacular view of the sunset.

At arrival we were welcomed by a representative of the management, who will bend over backwards to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Grocery deliveries are offered free of charge (you only pay for your merchandise), and you can also have dinner cooked and delivered to the villas for no extras.

Summarized: Great value and highly recommended.

Ein herzliches Danke schön an Nikos und sein Team !

Uns wurde der Aprilurlaub in der Villa Adiadni zu einem unvergesslichen Aufenthalt gemacht. Die Villa ist riesig und fantastisch gelegen. Wer Wert auf Stil und Harmonie legt ist hier genau richtig ! Die Außenanlage und der Pool ist wunderbar angelegt und äußerst gepflegt. 2 x Woche wurde gründlich gereinigt, die Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter sind alle unwahrscheinlich freundlich und zuvorkommend. Alles in Allem einer der schönsten Plätze der Welt !

Toll war auch der Serivce, von Yannis (besten Koch Griechenlands!) verwöhnt zu werden. Jedes Abendessen war ein Genuss !

Vielen Dank Nikos, wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen

Perfect calm and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two teenage children and stayed in the Easter week. We found the flat in impeccable condition: clean, with a lovely view over the countryside towards the coastline. The description to reach the house from Chania airport, provided by Niko, our very attentive host, was very clear. Once arrived we were greeted warmly. The free welcome dinner provided by the nearby Taverna Gialites was delicious, and the young family of the owner who delivered it were very friendly and kind. We gladly came back to order more food from them during our stay - very fresh, simple and tasty local food - a real treat!. When we wanted to cater for ourselves, Niko's home delivery grocery service came in very handy indeed. We only once had a problem with the water heating and this was sorted out straight away thanks to Niko. Although not really warm yet, this time of the year has its advantages. The beaches at Elafonisi (20 mins drive) were empty and refreshing, if you don't mind the water a bit cooler (including the pool). A ramble in the mountains around Elos and Kefali (30 minutes away) took place under perfect walking conditions. Paleochora (60-90 minutes drive) is still very sleepy, relaxed and pleasantly empty at this time of the year, while restaurants have started to open. We fully recharged our batteries for work and school. This great location helped us enjoyed the great Cretan landscape, culture and people!

vacanza fantastica

  • 4 of 5

Dopo un inizio un po incerto poiché ci aspettavamo di avere una spiaggia raggiungibile a piedi e per il fatto che ci trovavamo lontano da qualsiasi centro abitato, ci siamo rassegnati a dover utilizzare l'auto e a percorrere le strade tortuose di Creta e allora abbiamo scoperto il vero paradiso. La spiaggia rosa di Elafonissi, la spiaggia selvaggia e paradisiaca di kesodrados, la piccola laguna con la spiaggetta di Chrisoskalitisa, la spiaggia di Balos con il suo panorama mozzafiato. Se poi non avevamo voglia di uscire avevamo comunque tutti i confort nella nosta villa: piscina, barbecue, vasca idfomassaggio, lettini per prendere il sole e, se volevamo, potevamo ordinare il pranzo o la cena alla taverna a prezzi bassi e fatta con ingreduenti genuini: olio d'oliva, pollo casareccio, spezie locali, pesce appena pescato, formaggi di capra locali. Tutto molto buono. Ringraziamo Niko per la sua cortesia e disponibilità. Consigliamo il posto a tutti.

Why Mario chose Kissamos

In a beautiful unspoiled natural setting in the farthest western part of the magical island of Crete we have created in a secluded peaceful location Keramoti Villas . On a hill facing the beautiful Mediterranean sea and in walking distance to the gorgeous and wild beaches Keramoti Villas enjoy the most beautiful sunsets emerging every evening with the most wonderful colours. Experiencing the sun melting into the sea, playing with the sky's blue and creating magnificent art pieces just in front of you eyes again and again. While enjoying the tranquillity of your villa submerged in your cool swimming pool the sense of leaving all worries behind and flowing with the magical current of unspoiled natural beauty is enhanced.

Today's holiday demands ask for a place where people can get away from their fast pace life styles, and away from stressful influences. Nature itself has these wonderful attributes offering calmness and tranquillity.

Keramoti Villas are privileged to be located in one of the most beautiful spots of Crete and probably one of the least unspoiled natural surroundings of all Greece.

Away from the noise and the hectic influences of the more developed parts of the island, the natural surroundings where Keramoti Villas stand reflect a natural paradise which is simply magical to experience.

Just 500 meters from the sea and on a slightly higher altitude Keramoti Villas are enjoying the most magnificent panoramic see views, with extraordinary sunsets.

If you wish to avoid the 'hassle' of cooking any day during your holidays but also looking for fresh home made food, we have the solution. After the request of many of our guests who tasted our food we are offering a take away service.

Car: recommended

One of the few unspoiled natural niches in Europe. Wild natural beauty in a very special spot of the western part of Crete where development is at its infancy. A rare experience for those who seek tranquillity and peacefulness. An experience of something rare, something special and unique which you can only appreciate after you have lived it. Truly not a place for the most, but equally true a place for those who seek beauty combined with solitude , to enjoy those special moments with their loved ones and with themselves. The endless possibilities on a blank sheet of beauty!

A place you must dare to visit, because for some things of value you must be willing to take that risk!!

Elafonisi beach is only a fifteen minute comfortable drive from the villas. One of the loveliest sand beaches in Crete.

The clear, shallow turquoise water and fine white sand create a tropical paradise. Elafonisi is a magical place!

Mountains rearing straight up from the sea, deep wooded gorges, ravines and valleys and yet more glorious mountains,standing proud and acting as a magnet to the eye and the imagination that's western Crete, or real Crete, as some would say.

Western Crete rural life continues at the same slow pace as it has for centuries and the Western Crete visitor who ventures off the beaten track will be suitably rewarded with fabulous scenery and a friendly welcome at every Western Crete wayside watering hole.

Keramoti Villas are situated at the least developed western part of Crete, in the area of Keramoti village on a beautiful small hill surrounded by olive trees next to the sea and close to Livadia, a traditional fisherman's village. An ideal get-away of privacy and complete luxury for those seeking the ultimate in comfort and luxury in their own villa at walking distance from the sea.

The most renowned Elafonisi I beach is only a 15 minute comfortable drive from the villa. A beautiful and exotic sandy beach. A must for all.
