Fantastica vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Siamo appena rientrati da una stupenda vacanza a creta, stupenda oltre che per i fantastici posti anche per la fantastica casa che abbiamo trovato.

Appena arrivati siamo stati accolti calorosamente dal proprietario che nonostante non parlasse italiano o inglese aveva al seguito un traduttore c'ha ci ha tradotto ogni cosa...

La casa era stupenda, dotata di ogni confort possibile, dal microonde alla lavatrice, la piscina stupenda ci ha regalato bellissimi momenti assieme al barbecue nuovo di zecca. I proprietari hanno provveduto a far pulire e controllare la piscina e far pulire le camere da personale addetto. Avevamo a disposizione asciugamani puliti a volontà sia per la casa che per piscina, all'arrivo abbiamo trovato in ogni porzione di casa bottiglie di vino e prodotti tipici. Per qualunque cosa i proprietari sono stati sempre disponibili e gentilissimi.

La vacanza non poteva andare meglio, casa veramente consigliatissima sia per grandi famiglie che per gruppi di amici come noi

Excellente villa avec superbe vue

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié nos 2 semaines au sein de la villa. Nous étions seuls et avons profité de la superbe vue qui repose énormément. La piscine est extra et les propriétaires très sympathiques. Nous avons très bien dormi également, très bonne literie. Nous n'étions pas très loin de la mer (Panormos à 15 minutes). Les plages ne sont pas extraordinaires à proximité mais nous avions trouvé une plage sympa à moins d'une heure (Georgipolis). Nous avons aussi loué une chambre d'hôtel pour voir les belles plages de l'Ouest.

Bref, notre séjour a été très agréable et nous recommandons cette villa ainsi que les services de Homelidays (second année que nous passons par eux) Valia est extrêmement à l'écoute et aux petits soins avant notre arrivée et même des messages pendant notre séjour.

Merci !

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.

The village of Perama offers whatever you might need during your stay, big super markets, bakery shops, butcher shops, pharmacies, post office, banks, petrol stations,health center, local cafes and restaurants!
