The space

Villa Ioanna is a luxurious, stone-built villa of 120 m², that enjoys absolute privacy, set in an olive grove, filled with trees and fragrant flowers, an ideal place of calmness and relaxation. The entire property covers 1.000 m² and all of this is offered in a green clad environment. The great sandy beach and picturesque village of Panormo are only 2,5 km away, where you can find everything you need from shops, restaurants, taverns, supermarkets and bars!

In front of the house there is huge lawn covered garden, where kids can play safely, with the toys and swing provided. The terrace is complemented by a magnificent, 40 m² private swimming pool 0.8-1.4 meters deep, with a special children’s compartment, equipped with sun beds and parasols, where the whole family can enjoy the games, sun and fresh village air! Additionally, in a covered, shaded area, barbecue facilities and a big dining table are available, where you can enjoy your meals all together! Each point of the garden and pool terrace offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area and hills. The pool and garden are beautifully lit at night, creating a magical, romantic ambience!

The interior of Villa Ioanna is very carefully decorated and furnished with a sense where comfort meets tradition. The villa consists of two totally equal designed floors and it can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people, which makes it perfect for big families or group of friends.

The ground floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, a dinning area (table with 6 seats), living room area (2 large sofas and fireplace), a bathroom and two bedrooms(one double and one twin).

Stone stairs lead to the first floor, which also features a fully equipped kitchen, a dinning area (table with 6 seats), living room area (2 large sofas and fireplace), a bathroom and two more bedrooms (one double and one twin).

Sun or shade, terrace or gardens, indoors or outdoors, the choice of where to have that relaxing drink is going to be a difficult one!

This place is wonderful! Absolute privacy it is. You're in a middle of a big olive grove in a valley with great views. Accommodation is nice, aircon etc. The town in 5 minutes drive.. 30 minutes walk. A quaint place with 10 or 15 restaurants, a couple of beaches etc.. everyone is friendly. Dimitris is a great guy.. pops in and helps out with anything.. really friendly. Basically, get on and book this place for your holiday.. you'll love it!

What can I say, Villa Ioanna is simply a great place to stay! We were a group of 8 and occupied both the ground floor and upper part of the villa. Upon our arrival, we were greeted very friendly and found both fridges were filled with food and drinks!! There are no direct neighbours in the area, so its both quiet and no problem for the guests to be “a litte louder“ in the evening and even until sunrise :). There is plenty of space in the outside area, welcoming you to stay there the whole day and night. Get into the nice pool and have a swim, or sunbath on one of the plenty of sunbeds, or stay in the shadow as there are 2 big sunshades. Our highlight was definitely the bbq area that includes a stone oven which we used daily (selfmade italian pizza!!). The house from the inside is equipped with everything you would need. As there are 2 kitchens, there is enough space to store food and drinks and keep them cool. And to keep yourself cool at night, every bedroom is equipped with AC, perfect! Even if you do catch a rare day of bad weather in crete, there’s TVs everywhere in the villa and a fireplace if needed. What you need to know: Get a car when you stay there. If you do, there are lots of nice places reachable in a few minutes. Like rethymno for nightlife and restaurants, or the small town of bali with a nice clean sand beach and clear water (8-10 minute drive). A local supermarket is also only 3 minutes by car. We also recommend a trip to Elafonissi Beach even though it takes 2 – 3 hours to get there. I want to especially thank Valia and our host Mr. Dimitri for the incredibly fast replies to all of our messages (often within 1-3 minutes). Not only did she make it possible for us to checkin 2 hours earlier and stay at the bit longer. There was also a small issue with the water supply of the house which they helped resolve within a few hours. When she says „I am always at your disposal and glad to help“, she really means it. We would come back to the villa in an instant.

We stayed at Villa Ioanna for a week, with two families including three kids. Lots of space for everyone, we all had a great time. The house was exactly as it is shown in the photos. We had a lovely welcome from the property manager Dimitris and he was always available for any questions re. the house. Dimitris left us plenty of food and drink; brilliant since we arrived late on a Sunday.

We were a family of 9, including a baby of 4 months, and we had a great time. The house is described accurately, and has a broad yard, beautiful view and comfortable indoors. Unfortunately we didn't have the best weather during our stay, so we could not enjoy the pool and the outside area as much. Even though, we had a nice time traveling to the near by village Panormo and the close city Rethymno. It is important to consider that it is not possible to walk by foot from the house anywhere, so a car is crucial for every trip outside. The house is great for cooking, with a pizza oven & BBQ outside, and a well-equipped kitchen in every one of the 2 floors. Valia was great and helped us quickly with any problem we had, we were welcomed warmly by Dimitrios upon our arrival, and on our last night we even got to eat wonderful homemade greek food by the house owner's wife.

Willa w całości odpowiada opisowi na stronie. W rzeczywistości jest nawet lepsza. Absolutnie idealna na wakacje dla dwóch rodzin. Gospodarze bardzo się troszczą o gości z niczym nie ma problemu. Do morza, sklepów i restauracji blisko (do plaży 2 minuty samochodem). Niezbędny samochód - bez niego jest jednak wszędzie trochę za daleko. Jestem bardzo, bardzo zadowolony z tej willi i na pewno jeszcze raz tam pojadę.
