Note:

Due to COVID-19 Corona virus pandemic and certain travel restrictions we are applying some temporary policy changes to some of our tours.

For Panorama Ride on Crete (IT-GR-SRCR02):

For all guests that reserved a riding holiday with us in March and April, we would be happy to change your holiday to a new date. It is also possible to move your holiday to a new date in 2021. Of course, any changes in the reservation like extra booked nights or riding will be charged.

We are opening again for horse riding holidays from the 1st of July!
All European nationalities are welcome from the 1st of July but only for guests travelling from code green airports as marked by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency are allowed to travel into Greece without a quarantine period. Code red airport guests need a self-quarantine period of 1 week.
For a detailed weekly updated list of code red/high risk airports look at this link;
https://www.easa.europa.eu/SD-2020-01/Airports

We just finished a 4 days training from the University hospital with all our staff members, on all the rules, protocols and measurements we need to take in our hotel to keep all our guests and staff safe, and what we need to inform the people.

Every tourist visiting Greece needs to fill in the PLF (Passenger Locator Form) 48 hours before check in at the airport. For more information on the form, see: https://travel.gov.gr/#/

For guests travelling to Greece they need to know that they need to comply with all the necessary hygiene measures (use of masks and physical distancing).
Masks need to be worn in any situation where a 2 meter distance cannot be kept or where there is close contact like at hairdressers or doctor visits.
Masks also need to be worn during the transfer from the airport to the hotel and in the airport building.

All our staff needs to wear masks during work, with the exception of the guide during the horse treks or outdoor lessons.
All our staff gets their temperature checked daily.

Reception desk is moved outdoors and indoor contact is kept at a minimum.
Guests are requested to use the toilets inside their own room.
Check in times have changed to 15pm and departure time to 11am. So after cleaning and disinfection, the rooms are left to ventilate with open windows.

As our hotel has plenty of outdoor space we have room enough for all guests to eat at the same time and keep all the necessary physical distance.
The pool is open but we do have a maximum amount of guests that can be in the water at the same time.
Massage and face/body treatments are not possible at this time

We apologise to the guests for the use of 1 time packed products in the restaurant and rooms. But at the moment even napkins or pepper/salt are prohibited for use and are provided in 1 packed portions.

We are not allowed to enter the rooms of the guests. Not even for the cleaning. Except if the guests invite us to do so.
So guests are given the choice to have the room cleaned as normal or to have us put the clean towel on the balcony from where we will also collect the dirty wash.
We ask guests daily if they like full cleaning or just towels out.

Disinfectant gels are provided in all areas and inside the rooms.

Hotel rooms have recently been renovated to make them more spacious.
We created 3 new room types that can be booked at an extra charge:

  • Wellness rooms feature a 2 person Infrared Sauna cabin as well as a radio system, aromatherapy and colour therapy. The Superior wellness suite is located at the highest point of the hotel and it has a fantastic view on the surrounding. It also has a private balcony and a private garden with a furnished veranda and a sun deck with sunbeds. The room is equipped with the same amenities as the wellness rooms. It comes equipped with a sitting area with fireplace, a king size bed and a split level extra bedroom for an extra person.

  • Deluxe double suites (2 persons) have a private garden with sunbeds, and an open plan sitting area with a fireplace.
  • Family rooms. Families now have the choice to book the one-bedroom family suite which has a double and a single bed as well as a split level bedroom for another single bed OR the Superior family suite which consists of two connecting bedrooms.

Rooms included in the horse riding holidays are the Classic double room for 2 persons, the Family panorama suite for 3 persons and the Superior family suite for 4 persons.

The swimming pool area has a new closed off area with a 6 person heated jacuzzi with hydro massage and a lounge area for relaxing. The jacuzzi can be rented by the hour and includes Cretan sparkling wine and a fruit platter. The jacuzzi has led lights and a sound system for romantic evenings.

If guests stay in the wellness room for 7 nights they have a 1-hour jacuzzi for free.
The restaurant has now an extra 2 new verandas for all weather outdoor dining and a tremendous view of the lake. Under warm conditions the glass walls can be opened electronically from all 3 sides and the roof can also be opened/closed.
The outdoor terrace has been enlarged and covered with an electronic roof closure.
