Villa Kynthia, a charming family hotel of considerable historical value, rests in the picturesque fishing village of Panormo. 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) Breakfast is served in the tranquil courtyard in the shadow of the age-long pine tree. Our morning meal includes homemade marmalade, cake made with organic olive oil of our own production as well as pure local produce like goat’s yoghurt, prime quality cheese, eggs, olives, oatcake and brews of Cretan herbage. The pool, under the ancient pine-tree, is large enough to take a swim if the beach which is only a three minute stroll…seems too far.

Our second visit to Villa Kynthia and again a wonderful relaxing experience. The wonderful Effie has been replaced by the equally wonderful Maria who cared for us with skill and charm. The marvellous Karina suggested a days sailing and it was everything we had hoped for. We

Villa Kynthia is a delightful hideaway in the unspoilt village of Panormos. Rooms are huge, the pool a refuge after a hot day and the breakfasts are fantastic. The exotic Korina has her finger in everything, has great restaurant recommendations and knows everyone, and Maria is

Panormos is a largely unspoilt fishing village on the North coast of Crete. There are no nightclubs and a scarcity of teenage holidaymakers. Whatever rocks your boat, but this suited my wife and me very well indeed for our recent 10 day visit. Villa Kynthia is a haven. You enter

"Only 5 rooms, they all looked very nice.Unfortunately stairs to or in all the rooms makes it difficult with people with mobility problems."
"They are all good rooms but Artemis opens up to the huge pine tree and a view of the pool which is amazing!"
"I loved our room with a balcony overlooking the street so we could people watch."
"We stayed in Oddyssos, which was large,air-conditioned and quiet with it's own balcony and large private bathroom en-suite."
"Nefeli is the cheapest room but you do have to negotiate the stairs and the shared corridor to access the bathroom from the bedroom."
US$108 - US$242 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
