We loved our stay at Idili with our two small children. Location perfect down lovely quiet streets and close to all you need. Markos was very helpful and drove us to our next accomodation!n. I'd definitely stay here again!

Very charming traditional house. Markos is extremely friendly, warm and welcoming. It is the house where Markos grew up. He greeted us with coffee, fruit and his home-made wine. The lady who does the cleaning (Anna?) was also very kind. We were staying in Jasmine, where there was a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 2 little terraces (one upstairs and...

My stay at Idili was one of the most special trips I have ever experienced! From the moment I arrived, Markos went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and cared for. He could not have been more accommodating, helpful, or kind. I enjoyed eating, laughing, and sharing stories with Markos and his family. The property itself is...

Loved our three night stay in "Hyacinth", with the large veranda, mezzanine bedroom and sea view. Markos and Maria made us very welcome in the wonderfully restored and romantic former family home. Just what we were looking for. Idili is centrally situated in Panormos but very quiet with a lovely garden too. (And for those who wonder about such things,...

The only place I want to stay in panormos. So relaxing and friendly. Markos is like family to us. He keeps improving Idili each year too. Garden is great with fresh lemons to pick for the gin and tonics after a hard day on the beach! Already booked for next year!

Loved this holiday home, it had everything we could need for 4 people. Very traditional house, with all mod cons, and a very warm welcome from Markos and his family. A few minutes walk from the local restaurants and bars, and 5 minutes walk to the beach. I would fully recommend to anyone thinking about a relaxing get away for...

This was the second time for us at Idili Traditional House. Its a wonderful place to stay, beautifully looked after by Maria and run perfectly by Markos. Maria greets us most mornings with cheese pies and fresh orange, and with Markos we discuss the garden design, the Greek debt and life in the village and London. We can't speak highly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Idili Traditional Guest House in Rethymno, Crete The traditional guest house Idili is located in Panormo, a coastal village between Rethymno and Heraklion. The building is historically preserved, traditional and stone build, with verandas and a garden, constructed at the end of the 19th century. The distance to the beach is 100 m and 80 m to the centre of the village with the shops and taverns. The traditional guest house was renovated a few years ago and the Venetian-Cretan architectural features (traditional rooms/chambers, stone walls, wooden ceilings, fireplaces, grape press) were preserved. The three apartments of the traditional guest house named "Honeysuckle", "Hyacinth" and "Jasmine" were reconstructed with sensitivity and style, combining the Cretan tradition with functionality and comfort. It is a historical and cultural monument of the region which is inextricably linked with quality, tradition, culture, hospitality and comfort. ... more   less
