The Crete 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.
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
