Very enjoyable stay
We (family of 4) stayed in this apartment at the beginning of August this year and had an absolutely fabulous time. The apartment is ideally situated and is in a very quiet location. We spent most of our time around the pool area which was impeccably clean and was not overly busy, great for our kids with the three pools at different depths. Our youngest normally stayed in the middle one as she could easily touch the bottom. The location was absolutely spot on for us with town and the beach being a short walk and the pool being a stones throw from our balcony. Lots of lovely accommodating Tavernas were nearby and we ate very well. Our host, Valia, was very attentive and responded quickly to any queries that we had, couldn’t wish for a better service! Have booked to come back next year!
Très bel appt. dans un très joli village.
Belle vue, bien pensé, bien équipé.
Village sympathique avec de bons restaurants.
Notre séjour nous a semblé trop court. Nous recommandons.
Dear Frederic , we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
We have just returned after a weeks fabulous holiday. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a self-catering holiday. You can watch the sun go down over the sea from the balcony. The pool area is well maintained. The apartment is in a great location for the shops and restaurants in Panormos, only a 10 minutes walk down to the harbour. Panormos is beautiful, you get the real feeling that you are in a traditional Crete village and the people are very friendly and welcoming. The food in the restaurants is execeptional. If you are looking to see some of the Island of Crete, Rethmynon is only a 20 minute drive away. Chania is a bit further, but well worth the visit. We also took a ferry to Santorini which was a lovely day out.
All in all I would definately recommend this apartment, we will be back! Thank you.
Dear Helen, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Apartment! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Nous sommes restés 10 jours dans cette location. Tout était parfait ! L'appartement, le petit village de Panormos à proximité, la magnifique vue sur la mer et la piscine...
Un grand merci à Valia pour sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité et ses indications sur les choses à faire et à visiter. La remise des clefs pourtant tardive le soir n'a posé aucun problème. Nous garderons un magnifique souvenir de ces vacances.
Dear Sandrine, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our apartment! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Lovely apartment in a great location.
This apartment is really lovely; well equipped, spacious, clean and well presented. All the appliances and furniture are of excellent quality with a good, big fridge freezer. Even the crisp, white bed linen was nice. There are three balconies; one off each bedroom and the main one off the living area. The view from the main balcony takes in the swimming pool area and the sea. In the evening there is a great view of the sunset. The balcony does not get a great deal of direct sunlight which is a good thing as it never got too hot. We didn't need the air conditioning when we stayed there in June. The pool area and grounds are beautifully maintained with lots of flowers and plants. You are a short walk from the village of Panormos which has lots of good places to eat. There are a number of small beaches nearby and you can also swim off the pier. We stayed for two weeks and got a change of linens and a clean of the apartment half way through. Overall we had a lovely holiday and I would highly recommend the apartment and the village.
Dear Carmel, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our apartment ! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
A lovely apartment close to a beautiful fishing village
We really enjoyed our time here. The apartment was clean and well appointed with a lovely view out over the sea.
The kids enjoyed the pool and there was no problem finding a lounger.
Panormos is about five minutes walk away and has a great choice of restaurants and bars to choose from plus a couple of small, picturesque beaches. The harbour beach is best for kids as it is sheltered and shallow.
A car is definitely recommended if you want to explore more of Crete.
Dear Ian, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our apartment! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Despina apartment 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.
