To the side of the house there is also a wood burning oven built into the stone wall and a stone built BBQ where you can cook some of your meals while enjoying the beautiful scenery!

Dear Julie, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Perfect Getaway for three families!
The villa is located at the top of the village in a secluded and quite spot. With three families traveling together (11 of us in total) the 5 bedrooms, 2 balconies and ample living space provided the perfect amount of space to be together or apart!
The large pool is the best we have had ever, cleaned and topped up daily (very early in the morning with out any disturbance to us).
We enjoyed breakfast & lunch below the canopy at the front of the house, snacks and games around the table by the pool and sunbathing on the sunbeds.
Towels and bedding were changed every 4 days, and lovely Eleftheria was available to assist when we arrived and throughout our holiday.
It is a 10-15 min walk down to the sea and up hill all the way back, but this was not a problem even for me with some limited walking ability and taxi's were only 5 euros.
Everyone we met in the village was helpful and pleasant, there are lots of restaurants to choose from and we can strongly recommend 'Post Office Pleasures' for pancakes and waffles, 'Taverna Geronymos' for a perfect evening meal and 'O Maki's' for fabulous home made food - don't be put off by the lack of menu! Oh mustn't forget cocktails by the beach and the man with the parrot! Eating out was so well priced that we only cooked twice during our 2 week stay!
The beaches are small but the sea is warm and clean and the drinks are brought to your sunbeds!
Panormos is only 1 hr from Heraklion. The local bus took us to Rethymonon without any bother. We didn't hire a car and didn't feel the need for one during our stay.
We all had a very relaxing time and agree that we would return again.
Age range from 8yrs to 57yrs.
Dear Alexandra , thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Clean and spacious.
Friendly welcome. Quick responses from owner and property manager. Owner seems to live in basement floor but doesn't intrude at all. Pool great. Village is small and friendly with everything you need.
thank you for your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete!
Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
We spent a perfect week in this beautiful villa in Panormo! The house is amazing, it had enough space for us 13 friends to live together, cook together and to have a great time! The pool and the jacuzzi were the absolut highlight of this villa and everything was very clean. The owners of the villa Eleftheria were very kind and if we had questions it was no problem for them to help us...
We loved to sit at the table outside the house in the evening, visit the beautiful village of panormo or take a trip to the beach nearby...
To sum up, we can all say we loved this week in greece, it was just amazing and we'd love to come back one day! :-)
Dear Michele, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa!
Villa fort sympathique près de Panormo
Avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette villa bien agencée avec sa grande piscine et son jacuzzi . Nous avons adoré le village de Panormo avec sa petite plage au port , ses ruelles pleines de boutiques ainsi que ses tavernes ( Kastro et chez George et Georgia avec la meilleure moussaka du coin !)
Dear Veronique , thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
