About the property

Large garden & BBQ facilities! Walking distance to Panormo village & amenities!

Villa Eleutheria is located in Panormo, a friendly sea side village and is within walking distance, just 500 meters, to its well known sandy beaches, sheltered in coves with thin sand and shallow water far out, making them ideal for families with children. It is in a quiet location, surrounded by beautiful countryside creating a very peaceful atmosphere. At the harbour and the village several shops are also nearby for your daily needs and several restaurants with stunning sea views, located directly on the beach are unique for a drink or lunch. Also, water sports are available in the beaches for those seeking some summer fun and action!



A path in the lawn covered garden leads to the entrance of Villa Eleutheria. Along this path you will find a beautiful wooden swing and also an outdoor dining area where you can sit, relax and enjoy the nature.

Furthermore, the grassy path continues on the side of the Villa and takes you to the rear side of the Villa, where the private swimming pool welcomes you! The pool covers 45m2 and has a varying depth of 170 - 185 cm. The pool terrace is also equipped with parasols and sun loungers for your outmost comfort where you can either sit during the day and enjoy the sun or relax during the night and take advantage of the peace and quiet that the countryside can offer while stargazing. There lies also an old and original well, where the villagers used to take water from, stating the history of the village.

To the side of the house there is also a wood burning oven built into the stone wall and a stone built BBQ where you can cook some of your meals while enjoying the beautiful scenery! To make things even better, a large Jacuzzi with room for 6 - 7 people (not heated) is also available and promises to offer you endless hours of relaxation and enjoyable family moments.

Villa Eleutheria is divided in two levels, covering 180 m2 and can comfortably accommodate up to 13 people in its 5 bedrooms.

The wooden, rustic furniture add a traditional tone to the decoration of the Villa and create a unique atmosphere. Past the living area, lies the fully equipped kitchen, which provides all essentials for your self catered holiday. A large dinning table for the whole family, as well as an additional sofa and an open fireplace create a family ambience, that will make you feel right at home. Τhree of the Villa’s bedrooms can also be found on this level (two of them are interconnecting bedrooms) and they offer access to the garden and pool terrace.

Very clean and spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa is clean and airy with lots of outdoor space, having multiple balconies and plenty of seats/loungers allowed us to make the most of the sunshine even as it was setting! Kitchen is very clean and well equipped for cooking for big groups. The pool is great and the town is lovely and fun. Would recommend using the coordinates in a sat nav to get there- our first taxi driver didn’t and it’s not easy without, but it was fine once he looked at one of our iPhones. Very sweet of the host to provide olive oil and local eggs, everyone was super friendly. Loved hearing the goat bells during the day and having drinks in the well lit garden in the evening. All in all it’s a great villa!

Perfect Getaway for three families!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located at the top of the village in a secluded and quite spot. With three families traveling together (11 of us in total) the 5 bedrooms, 2 balconies and ample living space provided the perfect amount of space to be together or apart!

The large pool is the best we have had ever, cleaned and topped up daily (very early in the morning with out any disturbance to us).

We enjoyed breakfast & lunch below the canopy at the front of the house, snacks and games around the table by the pool and sunbathing on the sunbeds.

Towels and bedding were changed every 4 days, and lovely Eleftheria was available to assist when we arrived and throughout our holiday.

It is a 10-15 min walk down to the sea and up hill all the way back, but this was not a problem even for me with some limited walking ability and taxi's were only 5 euros.

Everyone we met in the village was helpful and pleasant, there are lots of restaurants to choose from and we can strongly recommend 'Post Office Pleasures' for pancakes and waffles, 'Taverna Geronymos' for a perfect evening meal and 'O Maki's' for fabulous home made food - don't be put off by the lack of menu! Oh mustn't forget cocktails by the beach and the man with the parrot! Eating out was so well priced that we only cooked twice during our 2 week stay!

The beaches are small but the sea is warm and clean and the drinks are brought to your sunbeds!

Panormos is only 1 hr from Heraklion. The local bus took us to Rethymonon without any bother. We didn't hire a car and didn't feel the need for one during our stay.

We all had a very relaxing time and agree that we would return again.

Age range from 8yrs to 57yrs.

Amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect week in this beautiful villa in Panormo! The house is amazing, it had enough space for us 13 friends to live together, cook together and to have a great time! The pool and the jacuzzi were the absolut highlight of this villa and everything was very clean. The owners of the villa Eleftheria were very kind and if we had questions it was no problem for them to help us...

We loved to sit at the table outside the house in the evening, visit the beautiful village of panormo or take a trip to the beach nearby...

To sum up, we can all say we loved this week in greece, it was just amazing and we'd love to come back one day! :-)

War ein gelungener Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 9 Tage auf Kreta insgesamt zwei Familien.

Die Vermieter waren freundlich und haben sich um das wichtigste gekümmert: wann sie vorbei kommen können die Betten frisch zu beziehen usw. ansonsten waren sie eher zurück haltender, was uns nicht gestört hat. Bei Anliegen unsererseits waren sie stets zur Stelle und haben auf SMS Nachrichten sofort geantwortet.

Die Villa hat genug platz geboten, es war sehr groß und der Außenbereich war sehr sehr schön. Wir haben jeden Tag halbtags am Pool verbracht und es genossen. Man hatte die Möglichkeit selbst zu kochen, wenn man nicht immer auswärts essen wollte. Die Betten waren bequem, die Zimmer sehr sauber. In jedem Raum gab es einen Fernseher und eine Klimaanlage. Möglichkeiten alles zu verstauen gab es auch.

Die Villa ist bisschen abgelegener, was aber in unserem Interesse war, da wir sehr viel wert auf Privatsphäre legen und aneinanderreihende Villen/Häuser nichts für uns wären.

Es gab wunderschöne Strände in der Nähe: Bali hatte sehr schönes zu bieten, als auch die Strände direkt in panormos. In der Stadt Rethymnon hat es uns besonders gut gefallen, viele Restaurants und Möglichkeiten zu shoppen. Ein paar Sehenswürdigkeiten kann man sehen, Schifffahrt oder Boot Tour buchen inklusive Schwimm und Schnorchelmöglichkeit. Ein Auto zu mieten ist empfehlenswert.

Ein bisschen was zu „meckern“ gibt es jedoch:

Die Spülmaschine funktionierte nicht ganz wie sie sollte und säuberte das Geschirr nicht richtig und auch das Badezimmer war ein kleines Manko. Es war sauber, aber es sah nicht ganz so aus, genauer: es glänzte gar nicht und das Kalk wurde, glauben wir, nie richtig versucht zu bekämpfen.

Aber nur ein kleines Manko, da das im großen und ganzen sehr gepasst hat und der Urlaub wunderschön war.

Wir wünschen allen alles gute!
