    In the rooftop apartment, high in the foothills of the White Mountains you will feel 'on top of the world'. Lie in bed, gaze thru wide open concertina doors at views of towering mountains, deep gorges slicing thru Mediterranean landscapes, rural villages nestling under the mountains. You have huge terraces with lots of seating options to choose from - the sea, nearby Samonas village, the wild and barren White Mountains. Surrounded by pots of bourgainvillea, geraniums and olives, you can listen to the flocks of sheep, bells tinkling, meandering up the hillside opposite, watch eagles circle lazily over the gorge, or scent jasmine on the clear mountain air.

    The Apartment comprises the entire upper floor of Panokosmos - two rooms with a large roof terrace with panoramic views. A bedro...

    The rooftop apartment is the top floor of the villa, which also has a further apartment for two on the floor below which may also be let out. The swimming pool is completely private and for guests sole use, as is access to the large garden and grounds.

Panokosmos is not for everybody. We wouldn't recommend it for families with small children or for people that need many attractions around them to keep them happy. But, if you want to spend a few days in a real authentic place, far away from the crowded touristic areas, up in the mountains with lots of fresh air and amazing views,... more

Management response:

It was great to have you here, and we both enjoyed our discussions. Our goal is to provide a place where guests can really take a break from busy lives, destress, and chill out. We are so glad that it helped you do this, and we look forward to seeing you again soon, work permitting! more

We traveled to Panokosmos in the summer fo 2013 Overall impression: What to expect in Chilimoudou: a really “away from it all” experience. If you have the patience and are open to non-standard tourism, you can discover lovely places such as local tavernas, small art & crafts workshops…and lots of others to make for a truly unique holiday that will... more
