3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
For the ultimate relaxing break, to relax, unwind and chill out from busy lives, hectic work schedules, or tough times, this is the place! Meet up with friends, have that family get together, or get to know colleagues better – Panokosmos gives you the ideal environment.

The most difficult decision may be to decide who has which bedroom! There are three, each with different character and facilities.

Main Floor Luxury Bedroom
For the ultimate luxury for one couple, luxury bedroom on the main floor has it all. Sleep as if you were outside with windows on each side. Stretch out on the super king size bed, gaze thru wide open concertina doors at a Cretan landscape with villages, gorge, mountains down to the sea. Be woken by the sound of sheep bells, the cock crow, or the first rays of the sun, coming up over the Mediterranean sea. The...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

'Wow' is the overarching sense of amazement we felt when we arrived and saw the property for the first time. Panokosmos is perched on the top of one of the peaks of the white mountains is a sight to behold. With panoramic views all round, that stretch to the mountains in the west and the coast in the north it's hard not to spend hours gazing into the distance. I can't see anybody could get tired of the views.

We had an amazing week having hired both floors of the apartment to accommodate my family of 4. The quality of the accommodation is very high and you are left wanting nothing which is amazing. This coupled with the warm hospitality provided by John and Yasmin put us at ease from the outset and allowed us to relax and enjoy the experience in full.

During our stay we enjoyed both breakfast and dinner prepared by John and Yasmin which was very well received by the whole family. We especially enjoyed the amazing pancakes we were served on our last morning before...

Management response:

It was great to have you at Panokosmos, and particularly cooking for you and helping you with directions and suggestions for places to visit. We really do love to share this very special place with people who fully appreciate it, and what we try to achieve. We do hope to see you again in the future – there’ll be new... more

We stayed with John and Yasmin at their rooftop apartment, which was a great experience especially to wake up and see the sun rise above the Crete mountains. Their house is really something special, brand new and luxurious accommodation with stunning views. Really a must for those who want to go off the beaten track and unwind but still close enough to everything else for a change of scene. John and Yasmin take every effort to make you feel at home and provided us with a great dinner and breakfast with fresh local and homemade ingredients and good wines. Although not for everybody we can only recommend this unique place and excellent hosts. We will definitely go back again.


Management response:

Lovely to have you Fred, and hope to see you again soon more
