Guestbook comments from the manager

spacious super clean and well kept vacation appartment, but with generously equipped kitchen. Quite secluded from the next village and all traffic and touristic activity in a small newly built settlement. Owners of the place live next door and are very hospitable and friendly (only speak Greek but get across all necessary informantion) - rocky cliff coast with stairs and mini pebble beach all to yourself with cristal clear water and a lot of sealife - beautiful.

Crete fot the 3rd time. We still love it.

  • 5 of 5

As ever our friendly hostess was part of a lovely holiday. We were surprised by a warm welcome with some national Greek (Cretan) products. The apartment was very clean as usual.

We had a lot of fun in the neighborhood of Panormos, but also in some other parts of the island.

We definitely will be back again.

Large, bright apartment on the sea

  • 5 of 5

Lovely large apartment equipped with everything you could need. Faces directly onto the sea, which is only a stones throw away. Note: There is no beach in front of the apartment, just short cliffs into the sea. However there are several beaches nearby. The owner lives next door so very convenient should you need anything. Panormos is probably the nicest of all the villages we visited on the island

Beautiful location, excellent condition with almost everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days this August (2016) at Lili's apartment in Panormo, Crete and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is fantastic, being right on the sea front with uninterrupted views over the lovely garden to the sea - including spectacular sunsets! On calmer days, you can swim off the rocks in front of the apartment if you are up to it, else the beaches are a short walk away along the seafront from the apartment. The garden is as beautiful as the pictures show and great for relaxing with a book, or to enjoy the view, suntan or sit in the shade, bbq and for our 2 year old, it was nicely equipped with various play things that he thoroughly enjoyed. The apartment is in great condition and fully equipped, including washing machine, dishwasher, aircon etc. Lili took care of all the basics and more and was always on hand if we needed anything. She and her husband and daughter were attentive, but not intrusive and very kind and thoughtful. The only slight difficulty we had, was that the wifi was a bit erratic, but it was not a great loss when we had so much more to enjoy - although one of our two teenage sons was slightly frustrated by difficulties connecting. A small detail, but it is also worth ensuring you confirm and agree beforehand what time you would like to arrive.

Panormo is a smallish village, but big enough to have all the basics including a dive shop at the 5 star hotel nearby. The taverna's we visited were good, many with great views over the harbour, if not brilliant. Although small, Panormo is not even an hour from Heraklion, easy to get to, is not hectically busy and touristy and is also close to Rethymno, which is much bigger, has a very nice old town area and is also a starting point for tours to Samaria Gorge, Santorini etc.

Overall a wonderful time, great accommodation and great service. Thank you Lili (and family) and Valia for your hospitality and a wonderful time in Crete! We would love to see you there again one day.

Our 2nd time, but not the last

  • 5 of 5

Because of our great experience we were back in Crete this year and it certainly will not be the last time. I do not know where to start naming the good experiences. Area? The House? The hostess? Weather? The food? The car rental?

It is too much to mention. Therefore, I advise everyone to consider himself to go on holiday to Crete. And if you, like us, have also Lili as hostess, you will never regret it.

She is very friendly and the house is comfortable. Fully equipped. The house is cleaned twice a week and provided with clean linen.

Lili grants your privacy, but it's very nice that you occasionally get some nice things. Fresh vegetables, fresh honey, homemade cakes and tasty things from the BBQ. And do not forget the occasional glass of Raki.

We will definitely come back again to once again enjoy all this.

Valia thanks for the good care and Lili thanks you for the hospitality.

Thoroughly recommended

  • 4 of 5

We were staying in Panormo as part of a wedding group dispersed around the vicinity. The property was ideal for us, being quiet but within easy walking distance of the many restaurants, bars and supermarkets in the village. Although there is no beach in front of the property (just sit on the balcony and listen to the waves breaking on the rocks) the well-managed sandy beaches of the village are only a short distance away. We were lacking nothing in the property, it is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Thank you Valia and "Mrs Lily", who lives next door, for your very prompt attention to anything we needed. We would love to come again.
