When we say that parts of Crete still remain pretty much off the beaten track, with a relatively low influx of tourists, then its places such as the small fishing village of Panormo we have in mind. It may only be 25 km from Rethymno, or 55 km from Heraklio and Knossos, but it remains strong to its roots - a small village with plenty of typical tavernas to eat and fine, sandy, beaches to boot.
The Villa Kynthia, a late 19th century house, is an integral part of Panormo, in part because of a loving renovation undertaken by the owners, Antonis, a wine producer and his sister Korina. They have imbued the place with their own special brand of charm, to which can be added period pieces, wood panelled ceilings and beamed eves. The end result is friendly five room (suites, double and apartment) guest house that makes for a fantastic stay.
Step through the ornate gateway and you what you see is a lovely sheltered pool courtyard, shaded by a pine tree and aside a raised pool. It is the most perfect spot to relax we can think of.
Breakfast can be taken here alongside the colourful and aromatic flowers. The interior decoration together with the furnishings and the architectural structure combine to create a time reminiscent of days gone by. At the same time all modern conveniences (central heating, air conditioning, TV, radio, telephone, free wireless Internet, safety box, refrigerator and hair dryer) expected in such quality accommodation can be found. Each room at Villa Kynthia has its own character and style and caters to different family needs.
There are 2 suites (Artemis – Odyssey) 1 apartment (Rea) and 2 rooms (Pandora, Nefeli): Artemis & Odyssey Suites – 38m2. A floor screen separates 1 double bed from 2 single sofa beds. Located on 1st floor.
Pandora Room (Superior Double) – 18m2. 1 double bed with balcony overlooking the village.
Nefeli Room (Double) – 12m2. Double bed with shower, overlooking courtyard. Rea (Apartment) 18m2 living room and 9m2 bedroom. Plus 2 single sofa beds. Ground floor looking onto courtyard.

Wonderful place
Date of stay 01/10/2019
This is a true gem. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the splendid Ioanna, to the last moment when we left and said goodbye to her and to the villa, we felt at home, and spoiled - bit just by Ionna's endless patience and attention to detail, but also by the peace of the charming courtyard and pool area, the quality and size of each of the five large and charming rooms - kept immaculate by Maria - the gentle atmosphere of the whole place, the excellent breakfast which Ioanna cooked, and the evening treats which she also provided. The history and intimacy of the place makes a striking and welcome contrast with more conventional hotels of any size. No wonder so many people go back year on year. We plan to as well.
The best location in Panormos
Date of stay 17/06/2018
Very nice and very individual. The best location to stay in Panormos. Definitly a recommendation. Very friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast. We had room no. 4/Pandora. Probabely not the largest room but the only one with a large balcony with a table, chairs and sun beds on it. The only downer was the very small bathroom and the bed which is with 1.6 m x 1.9 m definitely too small.

Das Kynthia Hotel hat uns vom ersten Augenblick an begeistert. Einmal so, wie es auf den Fotos abgebildet ist - paradiesisch schön, sauber, ruhig! Sehr persönilche Ansprache - die Hotelbesitzerin nimmt für für die Gäste Zeit für spezielle Tipps von Ausflügen, guten Tavernen etc. Das Frühstück war mit regionlaen Früchten und einem großen Angebot darüberhinaus vom Feinsten. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort buchen!
