Great choice for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this property. The appartment itself has everything you could need and is a good size, we have 3 kids and it worked out really well. The best bit is you can watch the sunrise from one large balcony and the sunset from the other whilst also getting a brilliant view of the see. The complex is really well kept and clean and is wonderfully relaxed and quite. Plus the location is great. A short walk from Panormos which is a really authentic fishing village with great tarvernas. Christos and his wife were brilliant hosts and we couldn't of asked for more.

Wonderful apartment with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for 2 weeks. It is a lovely apartment with every home comfort you need for a relaxing holiday. The standard of furnishing and amenities is excellent and the arrangements during the whole booking process were superb. The complex itself is lovely and well maintained - not too big but equally big enough so you don't feel overlooked or overcrowded. The pool is fabulous!

We arrived very late evening and were met as soon as we arrived to be given the keys and shown around.

The local village is a treasure - a nice walk in from the apartment to be met with a great choice of restaurants, cafes and shops - spoilt for choice. I would recommend this to everyone - you will not be disappointed.

I would recommend hiring a car to explore - there are lots of lovely beaches nearby but equally if you just want a relaxing holiday by the pool its perfect!

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely two weeks here with our two children (ages 6 & 8) and would love to return. Comfortable and clean home, great facilities and location and the owners were so welcoming and hospitable. Short stroll to the sea and to nearest town for bakery, tavernas and other shops. Great if you want to stay at home, relax and swim in the pool, but also easy to hit the road and venture in to the mountains or along the coast. Highly recommended.

Perfect place for a relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks in this apartment complex in the small town of Panormos. The picture and description of the apartment does it fully justice, you will not be dissapponted, rather positively surprised. The apartment is very well equipped (too many little decorations if you have small kids like us) and spacious with two good bedroom and a very nice balcony overlooking the pool area.

The service was excellent, both the owner and the guy looking after the apartments were very helpful and friendly, as was our impression of all Cretans.

I summary, we very much enjoyed our stay, there were other families with kids staying there so the kids could play together. We would like to come back one day when the kids are older. The town itself is a bit small, but it has the necessary things like restaurants, small grocery shops and a pharmacy. If you want to go to bigger cities, both Rethymnon and Heraiklos are within 30/60 min drive, and there you will find all you need. The beach close (10 min walk) to the apartment was fine, be we liked more another beach in the next town up along the coast.

Superb facilities and a great host.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days at Valia's apartment. We have a 5 year old so the location was perfect. The pool has different sections with differing depths, one was shallow enough for our daughter to play without armbands. The apartment was very well equipped and décor lovingly put together. Valia and her husband were very welcoming and always ready to help.

Super appartement très bien situé

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours formidables dans cet appartement situé dans une petite résidence avec une énorme piscine entretenue quotidiennement. Nos 3 enfants en ont pleinement profites! L'appartement est très bien équipé et la vue depuis les 2 terrasses est sensationnelle! Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et très acceuillants. Panormos est un très joli village, paisible avec beaucoup de très bons restaurants et toutes les comodites nécessaires. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir!
