Babis had restored this farmhouse with taste and we're sorry for not staying there another 2 nights... With a simple map and some lucky...

While it can be a bit challenging to find Village Kerasia (thankful we did it during daylight), it is well worth the effort. The setting for this lovingly restored home is exquisite, the outdoor space is great to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. Our room (a junior suite) was very large, nicely decorated,...

This is such a wonderful place, we will keep going back. A peaceful location but a good base to see the Island. The owner, Babis, is one in a million and cannot do enough to make your stay unforgettable. Breakfasts are terrific - try the fried eggs!

My mother, sister, and I loved the 3 days we spent at Villa Kerasia recently, a perfectly restored farmhouse peacefully located in the mountains, about a 20 minute drive from Heraklion. Babis, the owner, welcomed us warmly and made our stay absolutely comfortable. He provided us with personalized recommendations for the region that enhanced our stay (including a great nearby...

Old building, restored to be modern and comfortable. Good breakfast, pool, location, but chiefly memorable for the warm hospitality and friendly help of owner Babis. Well placed for Heraklion / Knossos - 20 minutes, but also pretty much all of central Crete within 75 minutes. We stayed a week and ate there twice - good value and excellent red wine,...
