My family, friends and I recently returned from our stay at Villa Panorama and it was without a doubt one of the best holiday’s that we have had in recent years. We were very fortunate to have got away at all this year. So we were really grateful for the service that Etouri provided which was impeccable from leaving a welcome basket on arrival to being contactable via the villa phone and dealing with our queries within a matter of hours.
The villa itself is exactly as pictured online; modern and well-equipped with unbelievable views. The two separate kitchens and multiple seating areas made dining as a group of 9 people easy. We particularly enjoyed the outside BBQ area which was perfect for alfresco dining with the outside lighting automatically turning on in the evening.
With regards to the stay taking place during the COVID-19 pandemic, the tour company ensured we were up-to-date with all of the local regulations and we felt extremely safe given the isolated location of the villa. That being said, supermarkets and beaches were easily accessibly with car hire from a company kindly recommended to us by Etouri.
Overall, the stay was almost faultless although the Wi-fi was not the strongest but as we were enjoying the holiday so much this did not really matter. My only suggestion to improve the villa would be to provide oven gloves for both kitchens as it made taking trays out of the oven rather difficult, but that is only a very minor point.
We stayed in Villa Panorama for a week end of July 2020 which was not long enough. We could have stayed a month it was so perfect. The location was amazing, just near a traditional village called Sternes and 5 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Loutraki and Marathi. The view was out of this world, location was wonderful and the facilities were all 5 star with everything you could ever need. the villa is great for 2 families or a group of friends as there is so much space, 5 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms, table tennis, table football as well as huge grounds and a beautiful pool. Etouri who manage the villa were incredibly helpful, knowledgable and always there for us. I cannot recommend this villa and Etouri highly enough. We look forward to going back!!
It is how it looks. This house is perfect for everyone. Families with their children, or young groups looking for some fun. Every accessory you want and need is there!
We send in Villa nearly two weeks. It was realy great time. Villa is very comforteable. The swmming pool very clean like all area. Beautifull view
The view from the villa to the sea and the landscape is stunning. We had such a great time, when we had breakfast and dinner outside. We were sitting and just looking to the sea and enjoyed it so much. The villa is so well equiped, you have everything you need. You can even bake cakes and bread, if you like. There was so much space and the pool was really warm and pleasant, perfect for us and our little daughter. It is perfect to have two separat accomodation units on both floors with everything you need. There is a military base really close and you can hear and see the jets, for my husband and our daugther it was great. Chania is also really close for shopping and eating out and Marathi beach is really close too, but a little bit to crowded for us.
We have booked the villa with Etouri and everything was as perfect and well organized like the times before. We can only recommend Etouri for having great holidays in wonderful Crete.
