We were a party of 4 and arrived late at night and let ourselves in. The apartment was immaculate and the provisions we had pre-ordered had been delivered, beers and wine in the fridge, milk coffee, eggs, bacon etc ready for breakfast in the morning. The beds were very comfortable and the aircon efficient. The location was peaceful and ideal for chilling out. The swimming pool and surroundings were well kept and cleaned daily and there was an ample supply of sun beds and umbrellas. The restaurants in Panormo village served a varied selection of fresh food that would appeal to all tastes, the village harbour, and sandy beaches were only a 10-minute walk from the apartments. We explored Rethymno Town and really enjoyed the shopping and night life. We also enjoyed a day trip to the South coast and Preveli Monastery. We would not hesitate to recommend the apartments and we have re booked for 2017.

Villa Helios proved to be a good choice as it is in the middle of beautiful countryside with every kind of ramble literally on the doorstep. The house has more space than we imagined and very well laid out. Views towards the White Mountains from the upstairs bedrooms are truly spectacular. We especially liked the colourful mediterrainean plants and shrubs growing around the house. Although just two of us this time, I can imagine it would be an excellent base for family holidays. Very good value, the owner (John) is a pleasure to deal with and responded to my questions very quickly. Will be returning with more friends sometime soon.

We cannot compliment the owners enough with their kind gifts of local produce. The villa was just a short drive to the town and beaches. Some lovely restaurants in the surrounding area. We thoroughly recommend the villa and will hopefully return one day.
