Lauras sea view villa review

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in October (not half term) and it was lovely and quiet, there is a shared pool but we had it to ourselves. I think the pool is shut for the winter soon. The apartment was lovely although challenging to initially locate (its opposite number 16). if you have mobility issues there are 25 steps up to it and a couple of steps down into it. I would have liked more patio furniture but inside is fine just like the pictures.

The location is beautiful, you can walk into Panormo in about 15/20 minutes. Panormo has lots of character, craft and gift shops, a couple of supermarkets, plenty of restaurants and a nice Bakery.

All the restaurants we tried were good but I would recommend Kastro Cretan cuisine both for the food and value for money.

we hired a car as we wanted to be able to go sight seeing, I'd recommend Best cars they were very efficient and didn't try to sell us any extras ( I booked them online from the uk and the car was waiting at the airport. We used Google maps for navigating.

You don't need to leave the area to get to a beach as there are 3 close by.

we visited Knossos, Heraklion museum, Spinalonga island, Imbros Gorge and Rethymno all of which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Very clean, spacious and well equiped apartment. Good shared pool. Quiet and attractive complex.

  • 5 of 5

Four in our party, 2 adults and 2 kids (7 and 10 yrs). The apartment was clean and well equiped with great sea views, particularly impressive at sunset. The lounge/diner has adequate seating including a sofa. It feels like home. TV is a bonus for the odd evening in but lacks English channels other than BBC News 24 and other International news channels. However the free Wifi is reasonably fast and reliable and Netflix streams fine from a UK account.

Apartment is on second level of a two level building, better for the sea view, but not good if you have anyone with mobility restrictions.

Shared pool is adequately sized and is clean and generally quiet / relaxing, with enough loungers.

It's about 10 - 15 mins on foot to the village centre, good restaurants, bars, cash point and beaches. A quite village retaining a traditional theme. We managed to walk to this with the kids without problems, but on one occasion after a slap-up meal the restaurant called us a taxi (5 Euro).

There is some development work going on at the side of the track which leads to the complex. Not close enough to be a disturbance, but it does mean the access track is a mess so drive slowly and pick the best path to avoid losing your exhaust (and CDW excess).There was always space to park on the road at the side of the complex, with less than 30m walk to the door of the apartment.

Beaches in the village are quite small, but clean and quite well protected if the sea is rough. There are better beaches within 15 mins drive.

You could manage without a car, if you got a taxi to/from airport, but with a car you can access more beaches etc. You can also shop at out-of-town supermarkets which are cheaper.

A great holiday. Would recommend.

Lovely quiet apartment

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the apartment for a week in April/May with my 60yr+ mother and two children aged 3 yrs and 10 months. Any suggestions I have revolve around travelling with young children, guests with kids 6yrs+ will be fine!

The apartment was lovely and clean. Any questions or quibbles were picked up immediately by the agent and dealt with straight away. A brand new cot and high chair were provided at no extra cost. The kitchen was well equipped but could do with a larger chopping board and a better cooking knife for those cooking a lot (we knew we'd be cooking each night so took our own knife). The apartment complex was lovely and quiet, it was a pleasure to have a sea view. The two terraces we didn't use much but I'm sure guests without such small children probably would. The pool was pretty chilly and as it was out of season I'm not sure it was cleaned daily. There was a cute play area for children on the complex but some residents informed me it's technically owned by other residents not the whole complex, anyway we used it and nobody said anything! As a whole complex it was very clean and well looked after. There are a lot of DVDs and books (mostly Italian) in the apartment which were all at the danger height for little kids so we moved it all out the way as soon as we got there! The welcome pack was useful although our kind taxi driver went via the supermarket so we had provisions on arrival.

The walk to the shops in town was more like 800m I'd estimate - I jogged up there each day and walked back with our shopping as we didn't hire a car. The walk was too far for my 3yr old in the 23 degree heat. We ended up using the nearest hotel (500m away) for their excellent pool, beach & restaurant facilities for 4 of as the town was very quiet (it was also Greek Orthodox Easter while we were there) and the walk was too much for my eldest as previously stated. They charged us €45 p/adult p/day all-inclusive. There are lovely restaurants and bars in Panormo, and the small town beach is v good but there's no shade for the children there. I think a month later things would've been more lively.

If I was to visit again I'd take a double buggy as the unshaded walks are a lot for little legs, or even consider hiring a small car for the run to the shops or visits into town.

Overall it's a great place to stay, the local people and other expat residents were all wonderful and welcoming. Enjoyed the shoe shops in Panormo and the food everywhere was delicious!

Laura’s Apartments are located in Panormo, a friendly, seaside village, offering some beautiful sandy beach locations, ideal for families or couples. Within a few meters walking, guests will find all the facilities and amenities they would need : well-stocked super markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.

Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.

Panormo is a tranquil resort, which has met a fast development in recent years, without however losing its traditional face. The wild beauty of the pure Cretan landscapes, the picturesque village, the beautiful beaches and easy access, have contributed to this development.

In Panormo there are actually two main beaches and a few smaller ones. As the name implies, Panormos is a natural harbor with calm waters. The harbor (Limanaki) beach in front of the village is the port of the area. It is sandy and has clear waters. It is ideal for children, as it is shallow and well protected from winds with piers, where the boats tie up. It is organized with umbrellas, showers, water sports and accommodation facilities around.

The second main beach named Limni is located just 200m west of the village. Similarly to the harbor beach, it’s a sandy beach, well protected by a rocky pier. Even further to the east, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkeling.

Rethymno city is just 20 minutes driving away from the villa. Finally, in panormo there is a bus station, with regular itineraries every 30 minutes that connects Heraklion and Chania cities.
