Un petit paradis niché dans les montagnes !

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison, une magnifique et grande piscine ( 10 m sur 5m ), situation géographique éloignée de l'agitation du bord de mer et qui permet de découvrir la Crète ( véhicule indispensable). Location idéale pour une famille de 4 personnes .Villa totalement conforme au descriptif annoncé. Nous retiendrions la bonne organisation de notre séjour ( 17 jours ) par Valia et surtout la gentillesse et l'accueil exemplaire d'Anastasia ( même à 1h00 du matin après un retard d'avion de 11h00 ! ). Service d'entretien de la maison et de la piscine irréprochable.Pour un 1er voyage en Crète nous avons été comblé.

Anastasia, la villa et les hirondelles nous ont donné envie de revenir...

Throughout the area the visitor is invited to walk in a region of particular natural beauty, to admire important monuments and to experience the customary local hospitality. We are pleased to offer our delightful region for excursions or holidays, combining naturalist and archaeological routes that, in their total, constitute an important 'map' of experiences.

Also Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, approximately 20 minutes away by car and well know for its 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.Even further to the east, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkeling.

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.
