Stunning place - breathtaking views, great comfort
Hermes is a a great house in a very exclusive setting. And the very friendly service of Filippa and her team made the stay even more enjoyable.
Private and Attentive to Detail!
This home was everything that it purported to be - modern, beautiful, private, with a great layout (for a family or a group of friends.) The view from the home is amazing, and though it's part of a cluster of four uniquely designed spaces - all with private gardens and pools, it is truly secluded. What surprised us, though, was the care that we received from Filippa, the site manager; she was amazing! The AM breakfasts were sweet, and the nearby taverna run by Yanis and Xania was excellent.
Thank you so much for your time to review our villas and for your excellent review!
It's going to be really helpful for any future guests!
We hope to see you again!

Perfect stay in Crete
This place is perfect! When we arrived late at we had an amazing view of the stars they where so clear. Villa Hermes is perfectly located on a cliff with an amazing unobstructed view of the bay. Litterly meters away from the private beach with crystal clear waters!! The villa is very spacious an luxurious with a lot of windows so everywhere in the appt u have an amazing view of the sea. EVEN IN THE INDOOR JACUZZI AND SHOWER!! The villa has all the aminities that u should expect like BBQ well equipped kitchen and lovely staff that take care of everything we even got fresh fish delivered on request on day for our BBQ! They also had great tips for nice places to go do sightseeing we saw some beatiful beaches in the area and had great food thanks to them. We would definetly come back here for another stay.
It doesn't get any better than this
The villa is even better than on the photos. Service is impeccable and high standard. Somebody was available at all hours in case of necessity. This is for everyone that wants a 5 star experience in all natural surroundings, loves peace and quiet, wants to go to sleep with the waves of the sea in their ears. A small piece of the road to this villa is not paved, a normal car can easily drive it but do not hire an extremely low set vehicle. A good local restaurant delivers meals to you on request and it is delicious.
Thank you so much for your nice words and your helpful review but above all thank you for being our guest!
It was a great pleasure to meeting you and we will try our best to meet you again in the future!
All the best,

Villa Hermes is EXQUISITE. Truly an incredibly special place. We stayed for two full weeks. The owner is incredibly helpful and always willing to help organize and plan your trip. The caretaker was equally helpful and, as he lives nearby, always on hand and available to help when needed. We had a few small issues with the A/C and the wifi, both of which were resolved immediately (though be warned, the wifi is very slow). During our three weeks on the island, we did not ever once see another villa even remotely as chic, modern and luxe as this one. They just don't exist on Crete, which makes this one even more unique and special. The architecture and decor are minimal and very high end, both incorporating the natural surroundings with wonderful touches like the indoor/outdoor herb garden, the rooftop gardens, the waterfall, the infinity edge pool, the wading pool...even the master toilet closet was an absolute work of art as it had a glass wall that looked at an illuminated boulder which had been cut in half and looked like an agate. The location is REMOTE...definately not the place to go if you are looking for nightlife. This is more for families and close knit groups who either want to luxuriate in a gorgeous slice of heaven overlooking the Mediterranean, or have a sense of adventure and want to explore the nearby tiny villages, gorges, rocky coves, monasteries, tavernas, etc. The property was impeccably clean, the listing was accurate in every way, and we would highly recommend Villa Hermes for those who want an incredibly magical and beautiful villa experience.
thank you so much for your detailed review! It was our pleasure to have you in our villas and I hope that in the future we will have the chance to meet you again in one of our properties!
We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in Crete!
We wish all the best to you and your family!
Even the superb photographs of Villa Hermes cannot do it justice - fantastic architecture, rocks and crystal-clear sea. The massive indoor/outdoor space when the main living area doors are completely open, with a large outdoor sofa about two or three steps from the pool, barbeque, or kitchen makes for a very lazy holiday if you wish it. Interior comfort level is very high, with excellent beds and bedding. The house is full of natural light but well-designed to avoid the heat of the sun, and at night - be prepared to spend a few moments mastering the myriad lighting options! But then too, if you like star-gazing there is next to no light pollution in this remote location.
We had great food at several different tavernas but found it hard to beat our poolside barbeques at the villa (the trip into Kissamos to shop at the Carrefour is about 50 minutes, but along one of the prettiest drives on the planet).
For a very high-end break off the beaten path, it would be hard to improve on this stunning property.
Thank you so much for your review! I'm sure it will be really helpful for future guests! Thank you once again!
The west coast of Crete is considered to be one of the most admired regions of the island as it combines all the virtues of Crete; magnificent sandy beaches, pure, wild landscape, rich flora with unique herbs and flowers as well as all the particular elements of the Cretan tradition.
Besides from all those natural beauties, visitors can taste the traditional cuisine in a variety of small local taverns which can be found around the beautiful villages, savor wine and tsikoudia, the well renowned cretan drink in the company of locals or go fishing and enjoy trips around Western Crete.
