Our family really enjoyed our stay at Zafiri Villa on Crete! Super quiet, lovely property just 5 minutes from the beach.
Had a great stay at our villa but had some communication issues with the caretaker for checkout process.
We have just returned from a lovely week at Panormos. The villa, pool and garden are all lovely and the area is beautiful. Nicoletta, the caretaker was so helpful, even meeting us outside the village to show us the way - we would have struggled without her help to guide us there! However, after the first trip, it was not a problem.
We received a delicious box of pastries from the owners of the property. Thank you very much, Mr and Mrs Stone. They were greatly appreciated.
Truly beautiful authentic cretean getaway!
Wow. What can we say. We have just got back from a magnificent week staying at the beautiful villa Zafari!
Nestled deep within the traditional village of Roumeli, we were warmly welcomed by the bubbly and enthusiastic Nicoletta. It was very clear she has a strong passion for looking after the guests of the villa and left additional local treats etc throughout the week, which was extremely thoughtful.
The villa itself is stunning and the photos really don't do justice to its location, you are simply removed from life with nothing but the tinkle of cow Bells and tweeting of birds, with views overlooking miles of lush olive groves - the perfect relaxation. The villa was clean, spacious and well equipped, easily meeting all of our needs and more!
That being said, villa zafari is in walking distance to supermarkets and the local Taverna Roumeli (you can't get more traditional cretean and the food and friendliness of the owners were second to none!). Those with a decent level of fitness can make the 25 min walk into the seaside village of panormos, which has a good range of shops, restaurants and tavernas, as well as a sheltered sandy beach, perfect for a cooling off dip.
Having had quite a few trips to Greece, to a range of different resorts, I can honestly say that this has been one of the best due to the location. If you want a proper experience of unspoiled crete I highly highly recommend this area and also this villa. We only hope to be back again soon!
Dear Mrs Hemsley and family,
Thank you so much for the warm words. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the villa and its surroundings. Your comments are welcome as they guide us how to improve our services even further.
We hope that you would be able to visit us again in the future. Thank you for visiting our villa.
Fantastic Place to Stay!!!
We had great time at villa "Zafiri" with our 4 year old son. We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Stone and Nikoleta for your generosity and making it special for our 10th wedding anniversary. Its a great location with beautiful views, very close to local beach and shops. The property was very clean and had all facilities and more.. We will definitely book this place again and recommend to friends:)
Beautiful setting nestled in mixed orchards
Lovely well kept Villa with very attentive caretaker. Nikoleta was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great tips on where to go and what to see. Villa was well equipped and had a great brick bar-b-que on the deck next to the pool which we used a couple times. I would highly recommend this place if your interested in staying the Panormos area
