Villa Kynthia, a charming family hotel of considerable historical value, rests in the picturesque fishing village of Panormo.Panormo, centrally located on the north coast of Crete, is 25 km from the Venetian town of Rethymno and 55 km from Heraklio and the Minoan palace of Knossos.
Villa Kynthia retains its grand charm as it has been lovingly restored with its wood-paneled ceilings, beamed eves, parquet floors and time period furnishings to complete this intimate five-room guest house.
Step through the ornate gateway and you find yourself in the enclosed pool courtyard, shaded by a venerable pine tree and flanked by a raised pool. This is the perfect spot to relax and have your breakfast surrounded by 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) which all overlook the peaceful courtyard.
The hotel’s high-ceiling lobby bar welcomes its guests for a drink to pass their evening relaxing and listening to music. The lobby opens out to a lively cobbled street where guests can enjoy a meal in one of the many tavernas situated in the area. A good cozy tavern, on the pedestrian street a couple of buildings away is very convenient for delivering your meal to your suite or the hotel’s pool courtyard.
