Valia Kokkinou purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Valia Kokkinou chose Mylopotamos
Panormo is a friendly, seaside village, offering some beautiful sandy beach locations, ideal for families with children. 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 9 am), 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. It also offers easy access to Rethymno city, as well as the highway leading to Chania and Heraklion towns.

Great family holiday villa close to village and beach
Our stay in July 2019 was fantastic. From initiating the booking process with Valia to leaving the keys at the end of our stay - we could not have asked for more. The villa is beautiful, with contemporary styling, comfortable beds, great lighting, modern appliances, spacious rooms, private pool and lawns - very nice for my family of 11 - 3 generations. Roula greeted us as we arrived and made sure we were well looked after. Locally there are plenty of cafes, ice cream and coffee parlours and tavernas, some right on the beach, others tucked away down little side roads. It's not too touristy in Panormos, and felt very easy to wander around the shops and bars, very friendly people too.
The walk to the village only took about 5-6 minutes, down a hill, but not too steep for the walk back! We wanted all of these facilities, especially restaurants, local to the villa as we did not want to hire a car. Our transfer from the airport (recommended by the owner) was happy to stop for half an hour at a Rethymno supermarket en route, for us to stock up on main supplies for our week. That really helped. All in all, I'd have no hesitation in booking this villa again - everything was just perfect. Thank you to Valia and to Roula.
Dear Keely , thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
A stunning village on the coast of Crete
This villa is magnificent: beautifully designed to a grand scale. It’s by far the nicest property in the region. It’s comfortable: it’s spacious; it’s well located; it’s well equipped; it’s got a great pool and well tended garden. It lacks nothing and it’s managed both helpfully and very professionally. 11 of us shared it, ages ranging from 11-85 and we found it perfect.
Fantastic family getaway
We had a half term holiday here with our adult children and grandchildren and it was first class in every way. The booking process was easy with Valia giving speedy and helpful responses to all of our queries.
We were delayed with our flight and arrived at 1am to find Roula , the owner, cheerfully giving us the keys and a tour of the property. The villa was superb, stylish, spotlessly clean and really well equipped and there was a full mid week clean and linen change, which was much appreciated.
The location on the edge of the village was just right for us . Everything was within walking distance - snorkelling off the beach, eating in the many tavernas and generally strolling around.
We really couldn’t fault this place and would highly recommend it to any large group who want to be near the attractions of a resort / village whilst having the benefits of their own private space.
Thank you Roula and your staff for making this a very chilled, hassle free holiday.
Dear Julie, thank you for this amazing review and we would really love to host you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Top quality villa, great for large families or group of friends
Villa is beautiful, recent build, with high quality fixtures and fitments throughout.
Great sized pool, much bigger than most villas we have stayed at, masses of outdoor entertaining areas.
The owner was brilliant, met us on arrival, gave us detailed tour of the property and showed us how everything worked, left bowl of fruit and a few essentials plus bottle of wine and some local cake/biscuits.
Cleaners came mid way through our stay, changed all towels and bed linen and bought lovely Gatueax.
Village is within 5 minute walk of the villa and has plently of bars and Tavernas, three seperate beaches, great view of sea from the villa.
Great location for exploring the Island being two mintes from the main road that runs the length of the island, but not close enough to hear any road noise.
Overall a great villa and a great holiday.
Dear Philip , thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Beautifully maintained and equipped villa and gardens.
We could not fault this villa, just five minutes walk from the beaches and charming village, with plenty of restaurants and shops. The friendly and helpful owner welcomed us in and showed us round, leaving cakes, wine and fruit for all the family. Mid-week she sent over a beautiful huge chocolate cake with the maids, and she came round to say good-bye and make sure our stay had been to our satisfaction when we left. A fantastic holiday villa for a large family group. The best we have stayed in!
Dear Katy, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Fabulous modern villa
We were two families (9 people, inc 5 children) and we had a fantastic holiday at Villa Eolia in the summer. We all loved the fabulous modern villa and would definitely return again, my son regularly asks when we can go back! Having arrived in Crete very late we received a very warm welcome from the owner Roula who looked after us wonderfully throughout our stay. Valia was also great and Roula & Valia kindly organised a delicious cake for one of the children's birthdays. Beautiful outside area and a lovely pool. The boys also appreciated the PS4 in the living room! The villa is in an excellent location for lots of superb restaurants, all within walking distance. I have no hesitation in recommending.
Dear Nicola, thank you so much for recommending our villa to other travellers and we hope to have you back soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Villa Eolia is located in Panormo, a friendly sea side village and is within walking distance to its well know sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds & umbrellas. Water sports are also available. The harbour beach in front of the village is the port of the area, where the boats tie up, this beach is unorganised.
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 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 has regular bus itineraries every 30 minutes that connects Heraklion and Chania cities and the bus stop is just few minutes away from the villa!
