Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Achlades - Kampos Villas, simply chic!

Lovely 3 bedroom villas, with private pool & terrace, BBQ & playground!

Kampos Villas are two autonomous villas nestled in the countryside near Panormos village, in Rethymno and they’re brand new, built with care, unique design and modern amenities! They're light, very sunny and airy…in little words, ideal Villas for your holidays! These beautifully appointed Villas boasts breathtaking country side views, overviewing vast olive groves, small hills and of course the clear blue Cretan sky! Kampos Villas are two split-level Villas, covering 150 sq. m. each and providing comfortable accommodation for up to 16 people. Their design is a modern take on minimalist lines, characterised by spacious areas, that you will just love!

Additionally, the owners of the Villa own a traditional tavern, where you can enjoy your breakfast, homemade meals, coffee and ice creams at any time, as it’s just 50 meters away from the Villas! Also one meal is provided by the owners during your stay!



After entering the stone paved path leading to the secure garage and leaving your car, you climb up the staircase and find yourselves in the outdoor area of Kampos Villas, which could only be described as a summer fantasy! To start with, each Villa has a big sunbathing terrace, featuring a 25 sq. m. private swimming pool (1.50m deep) and a lawn covered area, equipped with sun beds, umbrellas and an outdoor shower, where you can relax and enjoy the sun and fresh country side air all day long! It also features an outdoor sitting area and stone built BBQ facilities with an extra sink, for doing the cleaning up, after enjoying you homemade meal and al fresco dining! Additionally, guests have access to the owners’ vegetable garden, where they can help themselves to fresh vegetables for their meals!

To make things even better, the two Villas share a shaded playground area, with children’s toys and covered with a soft pad, where our younger guests will love to spend their time, as well as an extra relaxation area with sun beds and umbrellas.


Ground Floor

Another staircase from the terrace leads to the Villa’s entrance! Entering each Villa guests may find the lovely living room and a luxurious dining area, featuring a great corner sofa for the whole family and a built-in contemporary fireplace! The home cinema system and the DVD player are offered for spending some quality time with your family and friends! Double doors open out onto a large veranda with patio furniture and wonderful views of the landscape! Next to the dining area, lies the fully-equipped kitchen, with a smaller, more rustic-like dining table! Additionally, one bedroom with two single beds (which can be joined to form a King Size Double Bed) and a bathroom with a shower cabin can also be found on the ground floor.

This villa is truly spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas over the years but this one is by far the best. Everything you could wish for. The villa is very new and the condition is impeccable. The views are absolutely amazing, overlooking olive groves as far as the eye can see. The photos really don't do it justice, it has to be seen to be believed! It is extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing. It even provides beach towels which is an absolute winner, not having to take these left more room/weight in our cases to bring back some of the local products which were amazing!!! What really made our holiday was how welcoming and friendly the villa owners (Xenia and Lefteris) and their family were, by the end of the holiday we felt like part of the family. They were excellent company without being at all intrusive and couldn't do enough for us. The local taverna serves excellent food and drink, very inexpensive and right on the doorstep, we spent many a glorious evening there. We honestly can't think of anything negative to say, and we are very picky!!!!!! We have never reviewed a villa before however felt it would be remiss of us not to on this occasion. We will without a doubt definitely be returning. If you are looking for a luxurious holiday, in rural surroundings (albeit 5 minutes drive from the nearest town) this is a must!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

This idyllic villa is the perfect venue for a quiet getaway. Situated in a sleepy cretian village but a 5 minute drive from a well stocked supermarket. The owners are incredibly welcoming. We arrived late and the brought samples of food from the café as we had not eaten. Very thoughtful. They offered to drive us to the supermarket to stock up on all the necessities.

The villa is modern, new and very clean. Swimming in the infinity pool with the view of the olive groves is just sublime.

If I were to pick fault and this is not worth removing a star, it would be nice to have a fridge down at the pool area and there are no full length mirrors.

Highly recommended, we've had a wonderful stay so far.

Beautiful 5 Star Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeks holiday in this beautiful villa.

Arrived to the villa on a Saturday afternoon all feeling a little tired after the journey to find a imaculate Villa and Xenia there to greet us.

After showing us around and arranging for dinner at the Taverna we unpacked and found a fridge full of cold drinks, a cupboard of snacks and plenty of fresh fruit.

We found the villa had everything you could possibly need and all in brand new condition and the pool area was large and fully equipped.

The village was close to the sea at Panormos and we had a lovely meal in a local restaurant where the staff were very friendly and the little shops were nice to buy local gifts.

We all enjoyed our stay at this wonderful villa and have decided we will definatly visit again as soon as we can.

Fantastic Villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an amazing weeks stay at this stunning Villa.

We travelled as a group of two couples and four children.

Even though the pictures look very impressive they don't quite do justice to just how nice it all is.

The warm welcome from Xenia on arrival including a welcome pack of groceries and local fresh fruit and as an extra touch ,home made Greek yoghurt deserts.

The outside areas are amazing with plenty of room for at least eight sunbeds around the pool,a huge barbecue (with charcoal and lighting blocks supplied).Shaded ,covered play area for young children.

There are two local towns, both less than a ten minute drive away.

We only got to eat out in the restaurants at the beach town and ran out of time to try them all, but the food and genuine hospitality in the ones that we did try was excellent.

I would thoroughly recommend staying at this Villa and will be returning later this year.

Relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Kampos villa end of july. As we arrived very late , it was a little difficult to find the village. But when I phoned the owners, they came immediately to pick us up at the main road. When we arrived at the villa, the owners welcomed us with a lot of fresh food (thank you Xenia & Lefteris!) They showed us around in the brand new villa. The bedrooms are spacious, a wardrobe for clothes and luggage, air-conditioning in every room and a very good mattress. Two bathrooms, one with bath-jaccuzi-shower! The kitchen was very well equipped (coffee, fresh juicemaker, toaster, etc....) The villa was very clean and during the week they came to change the bed sheets, towels. Ouside it it very nice to relax near the pool (amazing view over the olive trees near the village) or have a romantic diner. Although you stay in one of the 2 identic villas, your privacy is guaranteed. The village Aclades is very quite, nearby you can find supermarkets, bakery etc in Perama (only 5 minutes by car) and many restaurants ( not expensive and good food) in the lovely Panormos. We already stayed many times in Crete, but this was far our best week in many years, thanks to the lovely and helpfull owners Xenia and Lefteris and their beautiful daughter Maria. We would certainly recommend the villa to friends or family and hope to come back sometimes.

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.
