Description Elafonisi villas - Livadia: The villas is located in the seaside village of Livadia, Keramoti bay, Innahorion, in the south western part of Crete, at a distance of 72 km from Chania and 31 km from Kissamos. The villa can be accessed through a 4 km long road that is connected to the regional provincial road. The village is located in the middle of the European hiking path E4– a seaside route of exceptional natural beauty- that starts at the village of Kambos and continues through the villages of Keramoti, Livadia, Chryssoskalitissa and Elafonisi. The route is typical of the rugged beauty of Crete with amazing changes of the scenery between olive and locust trees and sea-beaten rocks of black and red volcanic lava-In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done in the traditional way – you may buy fish from the fishermen in the small harbour, vegetables, dairy products and meat from the farmers, but you will also find three small taverns.
The west coast of Crete,: all the way from Mpallos and Falasarna till Sfinari, Livadia, Elafonisi in Kissamos until the Krios peninsula in Paleohora, has managed to remain intact despite the passing of time and to have many parts of it included in European Union programmes for the protection of nature.The coastline continues for many kilometres sprinkled with amazing beaches and quiet fishing villages. A few meters higher up in the mountains, mountainous villages pass the time gazing into the infinity of the African sea. Time goes by very slowly up her. Just about in the middle of the west coast, in the village of Livadia, we built the first residence, which was followed by all the rest, with the last two being funded by European Union through Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food programmes for the development of agrotourism. Our concept has been based on notions like luxury, simplicity, natural beauty, ecological conscience, environmental respect.
This concept inspired the construction of dreamy retreats, residences with unique architectural design destined for special people who have seen and tried just about everything and now seek privacy, comfortable and luxurious relaxation in an enchanting setting that guarantees absolute enjoyment.It is a combination of adventure and return to nature at the same time...You can swim in secluded beaches, walk alone and barefoot on the sand and pebbles of the beach, enjoy the rugged beauty of the Cretan landscape on hiking tracks, taste traditional dishes in small local taverns in beautiful villages scattered around this area, savour wine and tsikoudia in the company of locals, go fishing and, weather permitting of course, enjoy a small trip on a speed boat in a search of secluded beaches. You can enjoy captivating sunsets;You can put aside your everyday problems, feel rejuvenated, fill your batteries, get in touch with the people you love but most of all, get in touch again with yourself.

Amazingly beautiful place
Villa Hermes is a paradise on earth!
It is a villa that is built in harmony with the nature around it and has amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea, especially from the infinity pool.
A lovely breakfast is served every day and the local tavern can bring you food at the villa, which is delicious and authentic.
We would definitely recommend staying here when going to Crete for a relaxing holiday.
Thank you so much for your review and your kind words!
We hope to have you as a guest again in the future!

A real paradise at the sea
Our 14 day family holidays at Villa Hermes were wonderful. All family members of 21 or 60 years, felt comfortable. The house is in a secluded bay and this is not visited by tourists. The sunsets were spectacular. The house is stylish and functional. In addition, we rented the somewhat remote guest house. Every morning we were brought the fresh morning meal into the house and the day started very well. You absolutely need a car to explore the closer and further surroundings. Finally, I would say that we certainly come back again. Thanks for the great experience!
Thank you for being our guests! Thank you for sharing your experience!
We hope to see you again in the future!

Unique Experience that feels like Home!!!
Living for several days on the western edge of Crete and waking up every day with the astonishing view of the Mediterranean Sea was an extremely amazing experience.
The property was neatly cleaned.
It had all the necessary facilities that makes the stay easier and the infinity pool gave us the sense of swimming in the endless sea.
The manager of customer service was really attentive to our needs and desires. We were served a traditional, delicious breakfast with local products.
We ate in small hospitable taverns not far from our villa and we easily visited the well-known beach Elafonisi which is a special nature monument.
I would totally recommend this property to anyone who wants to relax by a heavenly landscape.
Thank you very much for reviewing our villa!
We would be more than happy to welcome you again soon.

Stayed here for a week in 2016 for a honeymoon. It was beautiful and I wish I could go back. The rooms, the view of the sea and island, the untamed nature, everything was lovely. The house was so unique and amazing that really set the tone for the rest of the honeymoon.
I wish the area will remain unspoiled and pristine in the future as well. In very few places in Europe you can find something equivalent. Fingers crossed!
thank you for your review!
Our best wishes to Tom!

The countryside is characterized by wild beauty, offering an incredible variety of landscapes and combining the rawness of the mountain ranges, the luscious green riverbeds with plane trees and oleander, together with the endless blue of the sea.
