Fantastic villa with every amenity you could think of. Very luxurious and comfortable for all the family. The pool and grounds are simply amazing. Because it was so fantastic it is difficult to pick out the best points as it was simply wonderful.The location is idyllic and peaceful but still close for all amenities. The owner was a perfect host who went way beyond expectation. He made our stay extra special and had two meals with us at the local taverna, he was a lot of fun and very interesting. He was always contactable and gave lots of useful advice on places to go. We would recommend a stay here to everyone. Many thanks Georgios for all of your thoughtfulness and kindness.

We spent the last week of October and first few days of November 2019 on the amazing island of Crete, staying in this beautiful villa. We took a chance with the weather - our research had shown that November is the start of the wet season - but we got lucky and enjoyed a week of 24-25 degrees with sunshine most days. We picked Villa Ermis on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews, and it totally deserves the reputation. Villa Ermis is perfect, hidden away from the rest of the world at the top of a hill, behind an enclosing wall and tall gates - you are truly shut away from it all. Yet the villa is easily within reach of local amenities - the local taverna in the village, several supermarkets, and the fascinating old town of Rethymno. The villa itself is simply beautiful. With the high ceilings and wooden beams you feel like you are in a castle; the garden is spacious; the views from the roof terrace are amazing (we stayed up to watch a thunderstorm one night), and the kitchen i...

We stayed second time in Villa Ermis. Holiday was magical, place is perfect: beautiful, peacefull, comfortable. George the owner is very warm and helpfull, the real soul and heart of Villa Ermis. Location is extremely nice: air is fresh up in mountain, but sun is still shining and warming. It is easy to do trips around Crete from villa and George has a lot of good ideas where to go and what to see. Stars at nighttime are also like a dream. We warmly recommend Villa Ermis for everyone who would like to stay in beautiful paradise at holidays.


A holiday is an escape. A getaway from everything and everyone you know, to somewhere you can recharge your batteries, relax your mind, rejuvenate the body and re-connect with yourself. And sometimes you may seek solitude or simply the freedom to choose by yourself when you want to socialize, or to see anyone other than your loved ones.

This "Castle" is hidden high above the quaint village of Kastellos, offers spectacular views to the Countryside, Mountains and the Sea.

When staying in villa Ermis you can relax completely in a trustfully and warm ambience, surrounded by the unique Cretan nature and feel part of its centuries long history, using, at the same time, any modern facility and equipment one might need. It is ideal for those who love nature, peace and quietness . Standing among Ancient oak forest ,time moves slowly and the “noise” of everyday life is soon forgotten. Perfect retreat away from everything!

The villa is like a fairy tale Castle and its decorated with finest designs. Become part of our peaceful household for a while and enjoy the unspoiled atmosphere.

The people of Crete know well how to celebrate life and how to make you feel welcome. Toast with people who make songs out of life and let these songs transport you!
