Great family vacation villa
The villa and our host were amazing, very friendly and helpful! Also the location of the villa is really convenient!
We hope to come back soon with the family!
Thank you for everything! 😊
Dear Trish, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Very clean and spacious villa
The villa is clean and airy with lots of outdoor space, having multiple balconies and plenty of seats/loungers allowed us to make the most of the sunshine even as it was setting! Kitchen is very clean and well equipped for cooking for big groups. The pool is great and the town is lovely and fun. Would recommend using the coordinates in a sat nav to get there- our first taxi driver didn’t and it’s not easy without, but it was fine once he looked at one of our iPhones. Very sweet of the host to provide olive oil and local eggs, everyone was super friendly. Loved hearing the goat bells during the day and having drinks in the well lit garden in the evening. All in all it’s a great villa!
Dear Sinead , 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.
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 Eleutheria is located in Panormo, a friendly sea side village and is within walking distance to its well known 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.
