“Short fat Greek holiday”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family has spent 7 days enjoying Villa Avra /first week of July/ . That means short , because according to my wife we should stay much longer.
What we like:
- Argyro, Makis and in general Greek people -in particular their hospitality
- accommodation itself - house is new and very clean ,air conditioned ,access to the swimming pool, very nice patio ideal for morning coffee and observing sunsets. Peace and quiet thanks to house location in the village outskirts.
- Makis taverna - means fat - highly recommended . You can always see the food in the kitchen before you order it. Anyway does not matter what you order - everything will be really top quality. There is is also very nice small local bakery just opposite the taverna offering nice fresh bread and some local sweeties.
-renting car is recommended .It makes travel to Panormo much more comfortable and also let you travel a little bit to see some local attractions. Do not afraid Greek drivers -they are only slightly crazy , but you will get use to it quickly. In addition you can stop from time to time and buy some fruit and veg from locals.
- there are only two small sandy beaches in Panormo . They were not extremely crowded but if you wish you can drive somewhere else . If you need some advice ask Argyro.

What we do not like: nothing really

In conclusion owned by Argyro Villa Avra is strongly recommended as a holiday destination and seems to be one of those places you want to visit again.

“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We just returned from our third vacation at Villa Avra. The impressions do not change with the time - the villa is the perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Comfortably equipped and perfectly located it gives you an opportunity to enjoy the sunset from the patio or have a walk to a nearby taverna. Very comfortable for holidays with kids.

“Splendid Villa Avra”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Very attractive modern three bedroom villa with everything you could need to make your holday so enjoyable. The owner made it that little bit extra special with a basket of produce including homemade jam,a bottle of wine, olives and dip and more. There is everything you could need in the villa with all modern appliances such as dish washer, washing machine, although the kettle is a little small, plenty of clean towells, including beach towells kids toys books and waterwings. The village of Panorma although small and quaint was lively and had plenty of eating and drinking places with a small beach with a beachfront restaurant with very friendly and attentive staff. The villa is only a five minute walk to the supermarket, giftshops and tavernas. It is aproximately 25 minute drive to the larger town of Rhymyno which is well worth the trip. What we particularly liked was the garden area was enclosed and you had to go through the garden gate to get to the pool which with a very lively three year old was great. The complex the villa is on is quiet and has a lovely view out to sea where we sat and watched the spectacular sun sets. This was a lovely villa and we had a great holiday.

“Perfect in every way.”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Everything went smoothly from the detailed instructions for finding the house to the welcoming basket, the supplies, the cleaning halfway through our visit, to eating breakfast on the patio. The villa looked just like the pictures. It really is just a ten minute walk to the nearest taverna and fifteen minutes to the harbor. Panormo is a tourist village but still has much of its original character.
