Overview & Facilities

About Kerasia Villa

Villa Kerasia is a home from home and a wonderful base to tour around the Greek Island of Crete by car. The property has been beautifully restored and tastefully decorated. Originally an old farmhouse building, Villa Kerasia was revived to a truly charming property that combines harmonically both traditional elements and modern style with a distinctive genuine Cretan aura. Today, Kerasia is featured in some of the most popular magazines and ranks among the most exclusive destinations in the area, in terms of design and aesthetics, location, character and services. This beautiful Cretan villa can accommodate up to 18 Guests in its spacious well-furnished and comfortable bedrooms. It is located quite close to Heraklion, the bustling capital of Crete and one of Greece’s largest cities, in a very quiet and peaceful area, with some pleasant strolls from the house.

Villa Kerasia is located within the settlement of Vlahiana, approximately 23 km southwest of the centre of Heraklion at an altitude of 580 meter. Kerasia’s elevated position at the southeast foot of Mount Psiloritis offers beautiful amphitheatrical views over the valley and the villages of Kerasia, Venerato, and Avgeniki at a distance of about 1 km. The area’s breathtaking natural beauty is accentuated by the intense morphological contrast of the terrain and the vineyards that embrace the settlement, along with the intrinsic beauty and sweeping views of the gorges at Ano Asites, Agia Irini and Venerato.

Location & Details


The area around Villa Kerasia is ideal for walking through the old trails leading to nearby Byzantine churches. The international hiking trail (E4) crossing next to the settlement leads to the organised shelter of the local mountaineering club (Prinos, 1200m altitude). You may also join organised climbing groups to Psiloritis. Within a short distance of about 2 km from the settlement there is the archaeological site of Ancient Rizinia. The city was discovered during an excavation between 1906-1908 and prospered from the late Minoan period of 600 B.C. until the Hellenistic period of 67 B.C. The location of Rizinia on top of a hill, at about the centre of Crete and midway between the two large Minoan cities of Knossos and Faistos, was of great strategic importance.
