“Beautiful villa in fabulous location”

person found this review helpful

We staying the Villa Avra for one week in October. The villa itself is great and has everything - even kids toys and lilo for the pool. The villa is a good 10-15 walk to the village, you can either walk along the road or along the shore. The beach in the village is good with a gentle shelf so swimming in the sea is lovely. The village is small and pretty, has a couple of small shops, good bakery (lovely pasteries) and butchers. The pool in the villa was great and the kids loved it. It was a little cold for me as we were there in October but I think most pools are unheated anyway.

“Beautiful villa”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful stay in Villa Avra. The views are beautiful, sitting on the patio watching the sunrise/sunset was amazing. The pool is stunning.
Argiro the owner is the perfect host and goes out of her way to make you have the best holiday.

“Amazing choice”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We selected Villa Avra at Panormos based on "gut feeling".it was beyond our expectations. The villa is beautiful, clean, modern and comfortable. It's location is the best one can imagine. Quiet, peaceful and serene.
Argiro, the owner, is extremely helpful and welcoming. We arrived to a lovely welcome delicious basket of home made jams and fruits.
We enjoyed our stay in Panormos and especially at Villa Avra.
I think the pictures do not do justice to the villa and its premises.

“Villa Avra has it all”
Reviewed 13 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Villa Avra is a semi-detached villa on a complex of 28. The villa is located on the edge of the plan with free view to the sea and with beautiful sunsets.
Like mentioned: it has it all. It is brandnew and has everything you could ask for. The beds are large and comfortable. Airco in every room. Very well equipped kitchen and living room. The terrace is great, with nice view, nive garden and enough space to play.
The shared pool is lovely, clean with enough space for sunbathing and swimming. The village Panormos is ten minutes walk from the villa. Panormos is a nice village with good restaurants and some supermarkets. Rethymnon is just 20 minutes drive.
The owner Argiro does everything she can to make your stay as pleasant as possible and that is exactly what we had.
