Wonderful and memorable stay at Penelope Home

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of 5 adults and one child, had an outstanding holiday, beginning with the very warm welcome by our friendly hosts, Mrs. Penelope and her husband, in the evening of our arrival and again the next morning with lots of raki and delicious cheese. A plate of fruits on the table, everything for a first breakfast in the fridge, even a bottle of wine for the first evening. The property was well-maintained and clean, everything very convenient and homely. It is positioned only a two minutes walk from village center with shops and restaurants (Makis the best) and only one minute to the beach. The views from the balconies over the bay are beautiful. The only little negative point is, that one of the showers was out of order. But the remaining two showers were more than sufficient for our group of 6.

I will surely recommend this house to friends and hope to come back someday soon to such friendly hosts who even gave everybody a goodbye present.

Penelope Home is located in Panormo village, a beautiful seafront village with a lovely view overlooking the Cretan Sea.

It is the most central location of the island of Crete and from here you can visit the whole island. It is only 22 km from Rethymno and 56 km from Heraklion town.

Panormo has all kinds of shops such as supermarkets, pharmacies, traditional taverns, cafes, restaurants and some of the best sandy beaches in North coast of Crete and everything can be reached on foot from the house.

With its Cretan hospitality and traditional character, Panormo ensures an unforgettable visit that features impressions of Crete that will remain in the minds of all of its visitors.

Additionally take advantage of the location and explore the nearby villages of Melidoni, Margarites, Eleftherna, Zoniana and Anogia where you can interact with real Cretan people and feel the Cretan hospitality. Around those villages you will also be able to see some unique sightseeing spots like the Idaion Andro cave where the Zeus was born according to Greek Mythology, the Zoniana village museum with candle statues and the cave “Sfendoni”, the well known cave of Melidoni, the traditional pottery shops in Margarites, the Ancient city of Eleftherna with its museum and many more.

On your arrival we will provide you detailed information of the area and what really worth a visit based on your interests.
