Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Villa Avra for two weeks in July/August 2014. We are a family of 5 and the villa was perfect for us. Three double bedrooms meant that each child age 9, 14 and 17 had a comfy bed and lots of space and my husband and I had a wonderful bedroom with a gorgeous sea view to wake up to.

The villa has a very large sitting room with adjoining kitchen and a large table with six chairs on the terrace, perfect for eating breakfast and lunches and we enjoyed watching the sunsets there most evenings before heading into the local village for evening meals.

The village of Panormo is only a 10 to 15 minute walk away and is full of lovely restaurants and bars. Many lovely restaurants such as Geronymos, George and Georgias and O Makis have their table and chairs on the street and offer delicious homemade Cretian food at very reasonable prices. Around 50-70 euros for a family of five including starters, mains and drinks. Around the harbour are more touristy restaurants but they also offer delicious fresh food. Most evenings were rounded off at Elias Cafe Bar for a cocktail (or two!).

A small beach with sunbeds and beach bar is about a five-minute walk away and is well worth a visit as most days you could get a lovely breeze. The communal pool was also very relaxing. No need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve your sunbed as each apartment/villa has their own allocated beds. Some days the pool was so quiet we had it to ourselves (even in August!). Saying that, my daughter made lots of friends from many different nationalities.

Argyro and her family were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Thank you Argyro, Irana and Maria for the lovely welcome pack, gifts and friendship. We will most certainly be back. My only doubt about writing such a good review is the fact others may read it and the villa will be booked-up when we want to go!

Amazing place! We loved everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the villa! Very clean and nice place to stay and relax! Amazing sea view with nice restaurants and the sandy beach in walking distance! The villa is very well equipped and had everything we needed for a luxury stay.

Evmorfia was an amazing host and she was really helpful during the run up to the holiday. She was exceptionally helpful and always answered emails promptly. She welcomed us personally, even though we arrived after midnight. She even organised our holidays suggesting places to visit based on our needs! Prior to our trip, we received all the information we could require about the villa and the local area and excellent recommendations for local car hire and airport transfer.

The villa is in Panormo which is very small authentic fishing village. It is very sweet with some local tavernas a few mins walk away. There are small shops, mini markets and bakery too! We loved relaxing on the sandy beach and the amazing meal prepared for us from a local lady, suggested service from Evmorfia the letting agent The kids loved the pool. We loved the villa so much and we definitely will come back!

The area is really peaceful and also a great base to explore the island! This is a truly wonderful accommodation in an unspoilt area on Crete, only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful village of Panormos and it’s amazing sandy beach. In Panormos you can find all the facilities and amenities one would need - well-stocked mini-markets, a butcher's shop and bakery, various gift shops and traditional seaside shops and some excellent tavernas overlooking at the harbor which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy the Cretan cuisine as well as international dishes. The house and indeed the whole complex, is giving the taste of safe and secure, which give you some very welcome peace of mind. The complex is situated beside Grecotel Creta Marine five star hotel, where, with a few steps, you could benefit from its five star services such as spa, massage, diving courses, scuba diving etc!
