Villa Kamares is located in the tranquil and picturesque village of Panormo located in northern Crete. Villa Kamares consists of two apartments, Astraeus and Selene. The villa was renovated with great consideration to detail using traditional earth materials, adorned with beautiful hand finished stone arches and walls. A number of original wood ceilings and floors remain and to our knowledge, the villa is the only apartment building on the Island of Crete which has had stone incorporated into its re-build on such a grand scale.

Few vehicles come down the narrow cobbled street as local people and visitors leisurely stroll through admiring the beautiful old Cretan buildings. The street is closed to vehicles from 6pm during the main tourist season. A heated spa pool is located on the ground floor of Villa Kamares and is open exclusively for our guests.

This apartment has been fully renovated with high quality and exquisite attention to detail. The modern facilities contrast nicely with the old (but renovated) stone walls. The spa area is stunning, with a cleverly-designed waterfall feature. The water temp was fine for summer (hot) weather...More

About the neighbourhood
Panormo village is a very calm, quiet, civilised holiday destination for people of many nationalities looking for a traditionally Cretan, Greek holiday. Panormo has retained its charm and originality and has not been spoilt by tourism in any way. Everything in the village is within a 2 or 3 minute walk - two fantastic beaches, a dozen or so tavernas serving delicious home cooked Cretan food, a few pleasant bars, two decent mini-markets, a bakery, butcher, a couple of hairdressers and jewellers, a massage specialist and three ATM machines. This all makes for an extremely pleasant small resort with lots of character.
Getting around
Panormo is 20 minutes by car to Rethymno, 45 minutes from Heraklion airport and 1 hour 20 minutes from Chania airport. Villa Kamares is a few minutes walk to the bus stop which regularly transports people to the towns of Rethymno, Chania and Heraklion. Panormo also has its own land train offering a choice of two morning trips way inland into the Cretan countryside. This is a great way of exploring the surroundings if you do not want to hire a car or go by bus further afield. If you want to go on one or two further excursions, it is possible to book a trip at one of the travel agents that have offices around the village or rent a car upon your arrival at the airport.
