Below is the text I just sent to Tripadvisor.
We tremendously enjoyed our stay at Babis at Villa Kerasia Inn !!!
I'm at a lost of words to express our gratitude to Babis for having made our stay such a memorable one. From his warmly welcome with wine and watermelon when we arrived to our departure, everything was just perfect !
Going to Villa Kerasia is like going to a family house, with this flavor of "old south of France".
We had a spacious room on the ground floor close to the pool.
We stayed 3 nights and had dinner there each night prepared by the lovely Iphignenia. Actually, dinner can be arranged but provided there are 4 guests minimum. Most of the other guests had the "table d'hôte" dinner with us. It was very nice and we get acquainted to each other easily, exchanging advice and tips about Crete. We enjoyed very much our dinners in a lovely and warm atmosphere.
Villa Kerasia has only 7 rooms (2 downstairs and 5 upstairs). Breakfast outside in the shade of the vines was really nice.
Babis took us the first night to the Wine Festival to Dafnes, a small village nearby and it was fun. He gives good and precious advice in terms of places to visit or restaurants. Thanks to him we discovered little gems that we would not have visited without his guidance. As Babis runs the place by himself, it is necessary to let him know your time of arrival so that we can be there to welcome you.
Wifi is not working very well outside or in the room but in the reception/dining room it works well.
Villa Kerasia is at a short distance to Heraklion and surrounded by the vineyards (we had a wine tasting at Daskalaki which we enjoyed very much).
Babis is a great person always ready and willing to serve and help his guests. We will definitely come back to Kerasia !
Many thanks Marie ...
