Vasos House, Kerames, Crete

Please Note:  Vasos House can now be booked for a minimum of 3 nights

Hauntingly  beautiful views of olive tree studded, rock strewn mountainsides dropping to a ragged edged coastline edged by azure blue sea accompany  a holiday at Vasos House. Newly built, on the outskirts of the traditional south coast village of Kerames, the  spacious and exceptionally comfortably furnished rooms, all enjoy direct access to the long sea view terrace at the rear.  Vasos House is a wonderful spring board for exploring this delightfully uncommercialised part of the south coast. 

 

Location

It’s just a few minutes wander from Vasos House through  the narrow streets of Kerames to a simple cafenion/taverna serving traditional fare and a small but amazingly well stocked minimarket, but this is ‘off the beaten track’ and you will need to head back up the 25 minute drive to Spili for more shopping and banking etc.

If all you need is a quiet sandy beach and a scattering  of traditional tavernas, wonderful views and walks, to complete your holiday then this is the place for you. In the villages around you will discover a choice of traditional tavernas, from a very well liked taverna in Drimiskos, to the small harbourside Taverna at Agia Fotini and beachside, Ligres.

Please Note: Below the house is the home of Vaso’s parents, Stella & Manolis, whose  path down to their own house is just inside the gated entrance of Vasos House. They both work in the area & are on hand should you need them but otherwise they will leave you to enjoy your holiday. Stella is a good cook & you may even be offered a dish or two or  a plate of Cretan kalitsounia. Vaso’s husband is a beekeeper and produces matchless honey, whilst Vaso works in Rethymnon.

Please Note:  Vasos House can be booked for a minimum of 3 nights

Vasos House, Crete Latest review - Vasos House, Crete
What a find!
"What a find! We love this 'undiscovered' area of Crete and this apartment on the edge of the tiny village of Kerames is a really comfortable holiday home. The views are truly spectacular. The beds are really comfortable. We didn't make full use of the lovely kitchen, as the tavernas in the village are just a short walk away. Kerames is in a land that time forgot with its maze of narrow streets leading to a tiny square where there's a taverna and a cafenion. There's 2 minimarkets and another simple taverna above the village (best stuffed tomatoes ad pork chop we had in Crete)..."

Location of Vasos House
Kerames, Crete

Turning off the road after passing through the pretty spa village of Spili, you are entering a different world. As you wind towards the coast, first climbing upward towards the tiny village of Akounda, with its wonderful old wash house hidden away amongst its tiny streets, followed by equally tiny, Ardaktos then turning and winding before you cross over the ridge and catch site of the Libyan sea stretching below. Then begins the downward stretch of the journey, passing through more tiny villages where life continues in much the same way as it has for centuries, then at last, Kerames balancing on the hillside.

Beaches are a short drive away and the beach below Vasos House (go to Fotini and turn left), are gorgeous and you can have a whole sandy bay to yourself. Highly recommended. "

Flights to both Chania (CHQ) & Heraklion (HER) Airports

We don't book flights, we prefer to stick to what we love doing ( finding the best villas in the best places) below is  a rather good app showing flight routes, airlines, prices with links to the airlines to book.

** Top Tip **, if you avoid flying at the weekends or in different durations, 5,10 16 nights, flights are often a lot cheaper, and remember with Freelance you can arrive ANY DAY at our villas, good eh ...

If you prefer to talk;

Alan Garner - IAG If you prefer to speak to someone, we have found Alan Garner at VHG  Flights (A fully ATOL bonded company ATOL5889) very helpful (mention our  name when booking), you can call Alan on 01444 225 618 during office hours.
