We serve cocktails, drinks and icecream around the garden. We have a carefully selected range of great Cretan wines which we can serve you with a mezze plate in the evenings. We also have an “Honesty Bar” at the poolside where you can buy chilled beers and wines. The property lies in the embrace of the White Mountains, on top of a hill 400m above sea level with all round spectacular views. Wander in the extensive Mediterranean gardens or laze out in the 12m long swimming pool. There is broadband wifi internet throughout the property. We can do a wash for you mid stay (at no cost). Our breakfasts (included) are legendary – varied, healthy with fresh Cretan produce. We bake all our own bread and rolls, and grind beans fresh daily for handcrafted coffee to give you a special experience to start the day. Breakfast is served in different parts of the garden and terraces. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1042K123K2963901More

Interaction with guests
We aim to give you a personal and intimate atmosphere, like staying with friends. You'll see from the reviews that we can do this in a discete way whilst respecting your privacy. We, the owners, live in a small self-contained apartment in the basement of the villa, where we maintain everything in tip top condition, keep the pool sparkling. We've lived here for 5 years and holidayed for 5 before so we know the locality. We eat at the tavernas, visit the sites, and know what we are talking about. A special part of staying with us is the advice and help we provide about what to do, where to go and how to get there. But only if you want it, otherwise you can go and explore for yourself, and tell us of any new places you discover!

We love to have guests who really appreciate the peace and tranquility - that special feel in the embrace of the White Mountains. We know you will come back, just make sure its for at least a week - unwinding and chilling out takes time!

About the neighborhood
At Panokosmos you will be near to the wonderful historic town of Chania, with its picturesque harbour, plateia lined with tavernas and little shops, quaint winding alleys which are always delightfully cool and shady. Aptera, with a unique mix of remains stretching from a Minoan temple to the Turkish fort is but 20 minutes drive away. Hike into the mountains, or take a gentle walk in the orange groves are nearby, or a lazy stroll thru a mountain village to while away an hour or two with a glass of wine in the shade of a huge plane tree in a dusty square.There is a botanical garden to visit, a water park for the children, two wonderful local wineries offering tours and tastings nearby for the grown ups! We can direct you to local artisans – potters, sculptors, jewelry makers, a Greek silk...
Getting around
There are lots of lovely walks right out of our door, but a car is essential to get around. We can arrange car hire with a local company we know well and make sure your booking goes smoothly. They will meet you at the airport.
