Where you’ll be

Panormos, Greece

Panormo is a small picturesque village at the North shore of Crete, 20km away from Rethymno. It is a traditional Cretan village with small streets and sandy beaches.
Panormo offers a great experience at the spectacular nature and the idyllic environment and it is the ideal place for peaceful holidays. If you wish to go swimming to a more quiet place, you can go to the West of Panormo where you will find small and isolated bights where you can enjoy your bath. Additionally, it is possible to go on short cruises to the surrounding beaches that are organized at the marine.
At the village you can find anything you might need: mini-market, post-office, drug store, doctor’s clinic, butcher shop, bakery, gift store as well as stores with traditional products. Cafeterias and traditional taverns with a view to the marine that offers a warm welcome and a wonderful scenery are only 10 minutes walking from our facilities.

Information about the beach
The two beaches of Panormo, the “Limni” and the “Marine” are located at 300m from the villas. The beaches are sandy, clean and organized where you can find diving centers that can offer you a variety of water sports and other activities.

Panormo or Panormus means the sheltered harbor. The existence of the ancient town is confirmed by the Basilica church “Saint Sofia” of the 5th A.C century 500 m South-East from the village. The Basilica is considered as one of the biggest Christian churches in Greece while it is the biggest in Crete. Panormo is also called Kasteli of Mylopotamos or else Roumeli Kasteli since it was fortified by the Genovese in 1206. The fortress was destroyed a few years later by the Venetians. Ruins of it have remained near the port.
During the history, Panormo has been the centre of the transportation of products as well as the production of huge amounts of olive oil and carob. There is still a carob-mill inside the village near the “Limni” and it is a cultural centre where many events take place during the summer. After the World War II when it was destroyed, the village was reconstructed and became a touristic attraction. The highway was then built while in 1980 the marine of the village was created.
Three festivals take place in Panormo every year: Ascension Day, Saint John on June 24th and Saint Nicholas on December 6th.
