We spent 2 weeks at the Lili Sea Front apartment and it was one of the best holidays we've ever had. The situation of the apartment is on the outskirts of the gorgeous Panormo - a little, traditional Cretan village. There are plenty of restaurants, a few bars, supermarkets and shops in the village which was a 10-15 minute walk away.
Mrs Lili was the perfect host. She lives next door but was very unobstrusive. She was helpful and even gave us some homegrown figs during our stay and a welcome pack of delicious Greek honey, some break, cakes etc, which was a nice touch.
The swimming pool is shared but we quite often had it to ourselves and we went during peak season.
There is a little beach a minute's walk away where we snorkelled as well as two larger beaches within walking distance where you can rent sun loungers/parasols etc.
My favourite part of this accommodation was the immaculately kept garden at the front of the apartment. I spent many an hour laying on the sun lounger under the canopy reading and looking out to sea. Ah, I wish I was back there now!
Thank you Lili and also Valia who provided an excellent service before and during. Touches like emailing when we arrived were lovely.
These photos look great, but reality even better. This complex is spotless and seeing them being cleaned explains why - they do a real thorough job. apartment was immaculate and very well furnished and fitted out. but it was the outside space that really made it. perfect for chilling out, very peaceful with the sounds of waves from the coastline only 10yards away and the sheep in the neighbouring field. yet only a 10min walk along the coastline to beaches, tavernas and 5 more minutes to the beautiful parnormos resort itself. mrs Lili was very friendly and helpful and even brought us round desert when we were lounging around one day. lots of great eating places in panormos and the evening stroll back in the warm air was very welcome and needed. we have been arranging our own holidays for a couple of decades and this place is in our top ten - we will definitely return, perhaps renting the accompanying apartment to bring other family members too.
