Guestbook comments from the manager

Nikki We were given such a warm welcome, from the moment we booked, and the owner and his family could not have been more kind or helpful, ensuring that we had everything that we needed and providing wonderful fresh fruit and plenty of other goodies. The house was comfortable and cleaned twice during the week, the pool was cleaned daily and was such an asset. A car is essential as it is a short distance, too far to walk, from the nearest small town. There are plenty of places to visit in the local area, but the pool is a wonderful place to spend hot, Pool, near the beach, low rates

Brilliant villa, superb host

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Barbounis Villa was wonderful. The pool is ideal for recovering from outings, and makes for a lovely backdrop for dining on the patio.

The villa itself is clean, modern and perfect for any type of family holiday, from active to sunworshipper.

Kostas the owner and his two delightful children make you feel v welcome, and react to any issue promptly. We had a lock on a gate break, which was essential for keeping our nosey two year old away from the pool. After alerting Kostas, he arrived within the hour to replace it. He also appeared throughout the week to water plants, and surprise us with desserts and beer.

The only addition I would suggest to the villa would be a book with all the necessary information - how everything works - so that visitors dont have to keep asking Kostas.

Overall a lovely experience. Bravo

Lovely relaxing Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday in this Villa. Absolutely loved every minute, from the time we arrived to the time we left. The owner and his 2 children were there waiting for us when we arrived to welcome us and show us around. They had kindly stocked the fridge with some beers/soft drinks and some local cheeses. They had also left us some wine and oil for cooking. The Villa itself is nice and clean and has everything you need for cooking. The Aircon worked perfectly and kept the rooms whichever temperature you set without being intrusive. The pool area is beautiful, with plenty of space and is very well kept. The owner and his children were there most days doing pool maintenance and were also kind enough to drop off another pack of beers and local homemade desert. We only ventured out to the beach a couple of the days as it was so relaxing spending time by the pool. I would say a hire car is essential as the local village is a 5 min drive and there are a couple of lovely beaches close by, but they are a 10-15 minute drive too. We went to Panormos and Bali, both really nice and not too busy! Overall i would highly recommend this Villa to anyone who wants a relaxing weeks holiday!!

Wunderschönber Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Blue Villas sind sehr zu empfehlen. Unsere Villa war mit modernen Küchengeräten ausgestattet, der Pool ist groß und der Ausblick auf die Hügel einfach schön.

Bei Fragen wurde uns sofort von Valia, der Haushälterin und dem Besitzer Kostas und seinem Sohn geholfen. Alle sind sehr bemüht um einen und Kostas und sein Sohn sind äußerst gastfreundlich und man fühlt sich sofort wohl.

Einziger Verbesserungswunsch aus unserer Sicht: weichere Matratzen, für uns waren sie zu hart.

Wer Ruhe und Erholung sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Perama ist ein griechischer Ort abseits der Touristenpfade mit zahlreichen Supermärkten (sie sind größer, als sie von außen aussehen), Fleischer, Bäcker und Obst/Gemüseläden.

Zum Essen fährt man ins 8 Minuten entfernte Panormo mit zahlreichen Tavernen, von denen wir besonders Makis Taverne empfehlen können, wo es authentisches griechisches Essen gibt. Als Abwechslung, gerade auch für Kinder, ist die 'Creperie' schräg gegenüber mit süßen und herzhaften Crepes und leckeren selbstgemachten Burgern sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Strände in Panormo, Rethymno und Bali sind schnell erreicht und in ihrer Art sehr unterschiedlich, allein in Bali gibt es drei Strände von ganz klein (der am Ende) bis zu etwas länger (ganz vorne), aber mit 4 oder 5 Reihen Liegestühlen hintereinander kein Massentourismus. Parkplätzte an den Stränden gibt es immer in direkter Nähe ohne Probleme.

Tolles Haus, herzliche Gastfreundschaft

  • 5 of 5

Kalimera Costas,

herzlichen Dank für 12 wundervolle Tage auf Kreta.

Das Haus ist sehr schön und gut eingerichtet. Die Küchengeräte sind alle neuwertig und von hoher Qualität.

Der riesige Poolbereich ist wunderschön, hier findet jeder sein Plätzchen, egal ob sonnig oder im Schatten. Was uns auch besonders gut gefallen hat, waren der Essbereich am Pool mit Kühlschrank, Spüle und einem riesigen Barbecue-Grill.

Der Ort Perama hat alles was man braucht. Einige Supermärkte, Bäckereien, Cafes, Läden und sogar ein Medical Center. Der dörfliche Charakter hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir waren froh vernab vom Massentourismus zu sein.

Das schöne Fischerdorf Panormos und einige Strände sind aber in einigen Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Außerdem kann man im Umland schöne Ausflüge machen.

Aber am aller Besten hat uns deine Gastfreundschaft und die deiner ganzen Familie gefallen. Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und das gemeinsame Barbecue mit Euch werden wir sicherlich nie vergessen. Du hast uns mit kretischen Spezialitäten verwöhnt.

ευχαριστώ

Viele Grüße und ein herzliches Dankeschön

Christian, Liane, Pia und Amelie

Panormo is a friendly, seaside village on the north coast of Crete. It has a very warm and friendly atmosphere and is an ideal holiday base for people wanting to stay in Crete. Panormo is located about 20 Kms east of Rethymno. It is a quiet touristic resort, which has developed strongly in recent years, without nevertheless losing its traditional form, which is based on the wild beauty of the Cretan landscape, the picturesque villages and narrow streets to explore, beautiful beaches in the village and easy access. It’s the perfect place for those who want to escape a little and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Cretan life.

The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9am!), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices. There is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food as well as international dishes.

Panormo lies above the harbour and overlooks the beautiful little coves with lovely sandy beaches. In Panormo there are essentially two large beaches, with calm waters, since, as its name suggests, is a natural harbour. Limanaki beach lies in front of the village and is the port of Panormo. It is sandy and has clear waters. It is ideal for children, as it is shallow and protected on the east by a pier, where boats tie up. It is organised with umbrellas, sun beds and showers. The west beach, Lake, located just 200m from the village, is also a sandy beach with crystal waters.

From Panormo port frequent boat trips to the nearest coasts are organised and there is a variety of other activities one can do : sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and water sports. Panormama Seafront Homes II complex it is situated very close to Creta Marine five star hotel, where within a 3 minute walk, you could benefit from its five star services such us spa, massage, tennis court, diving courses, scuba diving etc! It is also possible to rent fishing boats by the hour or day. Panormo offers a perfect holiday and safe environment for you and your children.

As far as sight seeing is concerned, the existence of an ancient city is confirmed in Panormo, based on the finding of the basilica church of Hagia Sophia, 500m southwest of the village. The 6th century B.C. basilica is regarded as one of the largest Paleochristian churches in Greece and the largest in Crete.

Also, traces of a fortress can be seen by the port.

The village hosts a folklore celebration on the 24th of June.

Perama village offers a range variety of tavernas, big super markets, post office, ATM machines etc and it is situated just 1km from the villa.

Also Bali, 15min driving from the villa, which was a small fishing village, but over the years has become a charming touring village, overlooking the little fishing harbour and the sea. It is a very attractive and romantic place, combining sea and mountains. Life is easy going enjoying the sun and the clear calm sea at a number of sandy and shingly beaches. Bali offers a large choice of taverns, restaurants, little shops, diving school, bars and discos.

Also, in a short drive you will find Melidoni, Margarites, the village of Eleftherna, famous for the arheological finds, and the historical monastery of Arkadi.

Finally, should you feel like having a late night out or do some shopping, you can drive to the lively city of Rethymno, a 20min drive away.
