Panokosmos offers exclusive, luxurious holiday suites in Crete. With its unique location, spectacular panoramic views it provides a unique “away from it all” experience.

Welcome to Panokosmos!

We are John and Yasmin.  We have created an exclusive, luxurious, relaxing holiday experience for you set in the foothills of the White Mountains of Crete. Choose between our two room Penthouse apartment with kitchenette or the elegant bedroom suite with luxurious ensuite bathroom.  You will be our sole guests, as we only book one party at a time.  Panokosmos – “on top of the world” in Greek – has spectacular panoramic views of mountains, gorges and the sea and offers peace and tranquillity, a personal and intimate “away from it all” experience.

Set in lush Mediterranean gardens, we have a large private pool and shaded sitting areas where you can relax in natural surroundings, breathe in the mountain air, watch the eagles floating overhead and listen to the tinkle of the sheep bells.   Right out of our door are wonderful walks in the nature to experience the serenity and warmth exploring the Cretan countryside..

We love to surprise – every breakfast is different, and served in a different corner of the garden.  We are passionate foodies, we never offer you a menu, but always a new and special creation for you.

Panokosmos – the luxury of a first class hotel, the privacy of a private villa, the atmosphere of staying with friends.
