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.

Why Niko Grigoriadis chose Crete

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. You may come and pick up your order, and enjoy our delicious homemade traditional meals in the privacy of your villa while wandering at the fantastic view. All our meals are always fresh as they are prepared after you place your order.

We had a wonder week at Keramoti Villas. Great location for exploring Elafonissi beach and area. The villa exceeded expectations with a beautiful infinity pool and we were well taken care of by the team. Added plus is the possibility to order in dinner from the local taverna. Highly recommended.

Fantastischer Blick und Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum zweiten Mal zu Besuch in Keramoti. Was soll ich sagen? Der Blick ist unbeschreiblich, der Pool fantastisch, die Einrichtung super. Niko ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend und findet für alle Eventulitäten eine Lösung. Aufgrund der Abgeschiedenheit hat man Ruhe pur was natürlich mit etwas Weg zu den Stränden und Städten verbunden ist. Das muss man kalkulieren. Wir wären auch dieses Jahr wieder hingefahren, haben uns aber gezwungen was anderes zu buchen, da es noch zu viele schöne Orte zu entdecken gibt. Wir kommen aber auf jeden Fall wieder.

Beste Grüße aus Leipzig/Deutschland

Entspannender pur vor atemberaubender Kulisse

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man Entspannung sucht ist man in dieser Villa richtig.

Das Haus lässt keine Wünsch offen.

Wir waren 4 Leute – alles kein Problem da jedes Zimmer ein eigenes Bad hat.

Sie liegt etwas abseits der anderen Keramoti Villas und hat eine einzigartige Aussicht auf den Sonnenuntergang.

Haus, eigener Pool, Garten – alles sehr gepflegt!!

Essen kann man sich in der Taverne „Gialtes“ bestellen, der Lieferservice ist sehr zuverlässig, das Essen sehr schmackhaft.

Nico hat uns jede Menge Tipps für Unternehmungen gegeben

Wir werden sicher wiederkommen.

Absolut empfehlenswert!!!!

This place is absolutely fantastic! A real gem in a remote area of this beautiful island called Crete. When fe found the offer here, we could hardly believe the beauty of the pictures, but when we arrived, we found it just like this. You can sit all day on the terrace and watch the sea, watch the sun, jump into the pool (which is not too small; you can take a few strokes). There is a nice garden on the lower level around the house which creates a contrast to the rocky surroundings on this most Western stretch of the island. There are nice sun loungers out there and the outside dinner table is just in front of the huge living room windows/sliding doors, where we sat nicely covered from the wind (which was still mild).

The interior is well thought of. The living room/kitchen provides a lot of space (couch wasn't used at all though, because it was too nice outside!). From there, at each end, two bedrooms with an attached bathroom each can be reached. Also these bedrooms provide a lot of space.

The kitchen is well equipped, nothing is missing. Also, as a nice gesture, we found some fresh groceries upon our arrival. The restaurant that cooperates with Keramoti Villas delivers good local and fresh food.

We stayed there for only four nights, would have loved to stay longer. We stayed there with our two little kids (3 yrs and 5mths) and especially the bigger one enjoyed the house (and the pool) a lot.

The surroundings are dominated by the rocky cliffs and slopes. There are bikes for free included and I took the advantage of discovering the area.

The beautiful beach of Elafounissi and other great swimming spots are not far away.

A car is definetly needed for a stay at Keramoti Villas.

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.
