Guestbook comments from the manager

5 of 5 starsReviewed June 9, 2014 NEW

We were a party of 11 including 4 children under 4 and what a wonderful villa.

When we arrived, we were excited and amazed at the size and standard of the villa- it is luxury from to bottom. Although there was only 2 double beds stated, we found all rooms had double beds bar one, with 2 singles. All rooms were fantastic and supported by 4 bathrooms. This allowed copious space for the 2 separate families.

Outside was beautiful. We were in love with the outdoor seating in the BBQ area, and the children adored playing in the garden with the Wendy house, paddling pool and main pool. The view is breath taking- Crete mountains and vast stretches of olive trees.

We all fell in love with Crete, is a a beautiful country and this villa is in a fantastic location to explore it. The closest small village of Panormos packed character and traditional Crete atmosphere and we ate here most evenings. We loved exploring the cobbled streets and little shops.

We travelled further afield to Lake Kourna where you can explore an amazing mountain set lake on pedalo boats amongst turtles. We also experienced Aqua Plus twice ( water park just past Heraklion) as the kids adored it on the cloudy days! We preferred the beaches just past Chania as the sand was of better quality than Panormos and they had beautiful mountain back drops and play parks for the children.

We would return to Crete in a heartbeat, and would stay in this Villa without hesitation. We hope to return one day, and we thank the owners very very much ( and for their beautiful moussaka they made for us).

Many thanks

Ruth Jewell and family.

Family villa with great location and outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 families had a very enjoyable stay at Villa Dimitrios.

The villas was easy to find with the directions provided and it's a short 7 or 8 minute drive to the nearest town where you'll find restaurants and supermarkets (there's a great bakery next to the supermarket on the left as you enter town).

All rooms are a good size. Most rooms have air-conditioning, but those that do not (the 3 bedrooms in the lower ground floor) are adequately cooled by air-con units in the living area.

There is a great outdoor BBQ area with a small gym if you're in the mood for a workout!

Great responsiveness from both the villa owner and agent with questions.

Recommended for families.

Perfect villa with amazing BBQ garden house

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 11, three generations, two kids, staying one week. The villa was ideal for our purposes and it served well also the kids's needs, with playground, baby-cots, high chairs and the pool. We loved the Crete evenings in the garden house, with bbq and even the pizza-oven. Mrs Eve was most kind and always helpful in everything we asked for. Perama village was nicely nearby, with good variety of supermarkets, groceries, butcher, fish-shop etc. Panormos, lovely Bali beaches and Rethymnon were easily reached by car. We had a lovely stay in the Villa and the sunny island of Crete!

Honeymoon at the lovely Villa Dimitrios

  • 5 of 5

We took our family and friends, totalling 10 adults, to the Villa Dimitrios celebrating our recent wedding.

The villa was fabulous and exceeded our expectations, very well equipped with plenty of room for us all. The outside space was perfect for family fun, al-fresco breakfasts and barbeques.

The information supplied prior to our trip was comprehensive and easy to understand and the directions to locate the Villa were easy to follow. We were warmly welcomed on arrival at the Villa by Miss Eva even though it was in the early hours of the morning.

We hired cars from Best Rentals, who contacted us after our booking, which proved to be simple and cost effective. We would recommend hiring cars as the location was a short drive from the local towns and amenities. Panormo was a charming little town to visit or stay on the beach which became very atmospheric in the evening. The local bakery in Parama was a particular hit for breakfast/brunch trips

We had a wonderful holiday and very much enjoyed spending time at the Villa and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Stunning garden and outdoor facilities

  • 4 of 5

There were 13 of us staying at villa dimitrios for two weeks and we loved it. The villa is beautiful, exactly as you see in the pictures and provided us with wonderful relaxing surroundings. The house is perfectly laid out for big groups of people to have comfort and privacy. The garden with outdoor eating area was lovely and we enjoyed using the pizza oven! Panormos is a lovely little village where the people are so friendly and welcoming. Eva, the owner was lovely and so accommodating and her moussaka was delicious and much appreciated! We would recommend villa dimitrios to anyone wishing to explore the beauty of Crete and we really hope to return in the future! Thank you for a wonderful stay! Alexia and family

Beautiful villa lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful plenty of room the only downside was the two double bedrooms on the middle floor were a bit on the small side and the master bedroom was very large so the planning could have been a bit better. There were 13 of us in all, celebrating my 60th birthday. 3 children aged 1,4 and 6 who loved the pool and garden toys. Two couples in their 30's and 6 of us aged 50+.

Beautifully clean everything worked. Had a problem with the TVs which was quickly rectified ( our problem not theirs, didn't understand the remote)

The jacuzzi was a bonus and lovely on the warm evenings and the moussaka made by the owners was the best we had all holiday.

We would definitely recommend this villa.
