About this location

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Panormo is a typical example of a Cretan Fishing village. Central located at the North coast of the island, 58 km west of Heraklion and only 20 km from Rethymno. Panormo has not been affected by the onslaught of mass tourism. The warm and friendly inhabitants, less 500, still work in the fields on the small fertile plains, or else are shepherds and fishermen.

Whitewashed buildings gleaming in the mid day sun, a mini-maze of back streets sloping gently down to the small harbor and pretty beaches. There's the traditional village square, with tavernas and Kafenions and the old picturesque houses are being renovated and restored with great elegance. For shopping the village has mini markets, a bakery, butchers, gift shops, jewellery shop, post office, car hire etc.

In and around Panormo you'll find small beaches of smooth sun-warmed pebbles, sandy coves, some with shallow waters, ideal for children, some with water sports facilities, fishing, diving etc. There are buses, which go regularly to Rethymno (15 min) or to Heraklion and Chania making Panormo an ideal base to explore many parts of Crete.

For culturally interested outings you may choose to visit the Monasteries of Arkadi and Prevely, and the world famous Minoan Palace of Knossos. Otherwise you may wish to explore the wilderness wonders of the Samaria Gorge, or simply take time to visit the mountain villages, for example the village of Margarites where traditional pottery and wood carving are still being produced.

Panormos

Rethymnon Town is a 20 minute drive from Panorama Seafront Homes. The Old Fort (Fortezza castle) dominates the town; it was built in 1590 to protect the city from pirate raids and the Turks. Rethymno is smaller than Chania, but is developing quickly. The old town is the place to go with its narrow shop and taverna lined streets that run along and off the water front.

Rethymno is full of charm and can compete with Chania for the title of "Most beautiful city of Crete". The old town streets are full of lovely old traditional stone houses many are of Venetian origin. There are also Turkish houses and Minarets. Rethymno has a long sandy beach that starts in the town centre and runs eastward. The beach is lined with Palm trees, hotels, Restaurants, cocktail bars, cafes and tavernas, plus all the tourist shops one would expect. The town is full of life and energy and eating out under the stars is a pleasure not to be missed.

There are several museums in the town.

Parking is easy if you head for head for the town centre and leave the car in a large car park across the road from the towns lovely gardens, just a few metres from an arch way that leads in to the lovely old town with many shops tavernas and bars

"Schöne Ferienanlage nahe eines intakten Dorfes mit kleinem aber feinem Strand"

Die Ferienanlage ist schön bepflanzt und lädt zum verweilen ein. Beim Pool wird allerdings viel Chemie eingesetzt. Vor allem störend ist, dass sich die blaue Poolwandfarbe bei Berührung auf die Ha… More

"Absolutely delightful!"

This is a truly wonderful accommodation in a peaceful, unspoilt rural area on Crete. We hired a car at Iraklion airport and found the owner's directions very easy to follow and found the accommodation without any difficulty. The accommodation and the surrounding complex really are as nice as they look in the photos, if not nicer!! The apartment, and indeed the whole complex, felt safe and secure, which gave us some very welcome peace of mind given that we have three young children. The apartment is modern, very clean and tidy and very well equipped; there is even a washing machine in the apartment if the children run out of clean clothes, and they are dry in no time when put on the drying rack provided on the balcony. Our balcony overlooked the pool area to the left and we had spectacular views of the sea to the right, which made for a lovely setting at breakfast time once we had made the very short walk into the village and back to buy some fresh fruit and bread. The complex was very quiet at all times even though most of the apartments were occupied while we were there. The well-sized and well maintained pool is ideal for a family with its three sections plus smaller pool and neither the pool or pool area ever felt overcrowded. The bedrooms are very comfortable - the air con was worth its weight in gold - and we found that the kitchen contained everything that we needed to prepare a variety of meals for the whole family when we fancied a night in. The bathroom was also nice and clean and had one of the most powerful showers I've ever used when turned up to max! We had no issues at all while we were at the apartment - everything worked as expected and we were able to enjoy our holiday in comfort. It is only a 15 minute walk to the village which has all the facilities and amenities one would need - well-stocked mini-markets, a separate butcher's shop and bakery, various gift shops and traditional seaside shops and some excellent tavernas overlooking the harbour which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food as well as international dishes. The area doesn't seem to have been overwhelmed by tourism, but the locals are very accommodating. Although we stayed around the apartment complex and the village on most days since we felt that these offered more than enough to keep the whole family happy and entertained, we did venture to Rethymno on two afternoons - only 20 mins by car and a very pretty town - and Elounda (just under 2 hours away) in order to take the boat to the pretty islet of Spinalonga. Panorama Seafront Homes was very conveniently situated for these outings. It is also close enough to explore the towns of Chania and Iraklion. We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, and the owner was very helpful in providing information about the complex and the surrounding area, including some recommended excursions, before we travelled. We would definitely return here in the future.

Great review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you very much.
