Location

Rethimnon, Crete, Greece

Villa Ioanna is located just 6 minutes away by car from Panormo, a friendly, seaside village, offering some beautiful sandy beach locations, ideal for families or couples.

Panormo is a tranquil resort, which has met a fast development in recent years, without however losing its traditional face. The wild beauty of the pure Cretan landscapes, the picturesque village, the beautiful beaches and easy access, have contributed to this development.

In Panormo there are actually two main beaches and a few smaller ones. As the name implies, Panormos is a natural harbour with calm waters. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds & umbrellas. Water sports are also available. The harbour beach in front of the village is the port of the area, where the boats tie up, this beach is unorganised.

The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.

Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.

Rethymno city is just 20 minutes driving away from the villa. Finally, in panormo there is a bus station, with regular itineraries every 30 minutes that connects Heraklion and Chania cities.
