Peaceful Villa with Beautiful Views
Really hard to fault this wonderful villa. It is right on top of the mountain giving beautiful views as well as a sense of seclusion. It is has ample grounds yet still gives cosy feel. We stayed as two couples with a baby each and found everything clean, well ordered and very well equipped for self catering. Having to take the rubbish / recycling down the mountain each day can be problematic but it seems to be the way it’s done in Crete. We would happily stay again and have already recommended it to others.
My husband & I, together with our two teenage sons, had the most wonderful time here at Villa Petra! Due to our flight being delayed, we didn't arrive until nearly 3am, but the directions were so clear we managed to follow them even in the dark!
The villa is comfortable and homely, and we settled into our holiday immediately. Whether we were relaxing by the pool, enjoying the beaches - Kalives, Kalami & Yorgiopolis, exploring the Akrotiri peninsular, finding ancient churches and Minoan ruins or going head-first down slides at the water park, we simply had a really great time. We had some wonderful food too - Chania, Douliana, Vamos, Kalives & Armenoi all came up trumps! We very much hope to be back to explore some more of this beautiful part of Crete.
Superb views and very comfortable
Villa Petra was everything we hoped it would be and more: very comfortable and well appointed, well located for exploring the countryside of western Crete and - best of all - the dramatic views of the sea, countryside, villages, and mountains. Many relaxing hours were spent reading or lazing in the pool with that gorgeous view spread out in front of us. A wonderful antidote for the stresses of modern living, without sacrificing holiday comforts. The kids loved the pool and the wood or charcoal burning bbq was great. We loved the location - away from the noise and hubbub of the towns and other tourists. It is a short drive to Stylos to pick up provisions or eat at one of the tavernas. We also appreciated the thoughtful welcome pack of milk, juice, jam, butter and wine. 2 minor quibbles which can be easily fixed: the single bed mattresses downstairs were not comfortable (springs were prominent) and we struggled to make the wi-fi work, despite the instructions (difficult to top up the balance using the Cosmote page). 2 suggestions for an even better experience: we found ourselves wishing for electric fans to provide an alternative to aircon for personal cooling (especially when sleeping - the aircon is noisy and has a drying effect (and uses a lot of electricity and is expensive to run, although that cost is not paid by the guest)) and we would have liked some fuel and lighting fluid for the bbq so we didn’t have to duck back to town to pick up charcoal on the first night. But those comments do not lessen our overall endorsement of Villa Petra.
Thank you for your review and your helpful comments.
This villa on top of the hill with views of the sea was like Heaven on Earth. A dip in the pool every night after a day of sightseeing was both refreshing and relaxing. The villa was well appointed and the location perfect with short drives to all of our destinations. Thank you so much for making this home available to us. I would highly recommend a stay here!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our Villa... we hope you will holiday with us again in the future. You were perfect guests.

A 2 min en coche del tradicional pueblo de Stilos donde hay pequeñas tiendas para provisiones diarias y tabernas locales. El pueblo playero más agitado de Kalives (a 10 min). La ciudad más cercana con farmacia, panadería, tienda de vegetales (donde también venden vinos blancos y rojos de los pueblos locales), bancos, oficina de correos, numerosas tabernas y cafés, mini-mercados y dos playas pequeñas. Vamos - Centro de salud, tabernas y cajeros automáticos. La Canea (a 30 min) - (una bahía veneciana animada) - Buceo, paseos en bote, parques acuáticos, mercado los sábados por la mañana, bancos y mucho, mucho más. La Canea, antigua capital de Creta, ofrece calles estrechas y pintorescas así como un hermoso puerto bordeado por tabernas y cafés que sirven excelente cocina local. Un poco más lejos está un parque acuático en Limnoupolis, la pista de karting más grande en Creta, oportunidad de paseos en bote desde el puerto de La Canea y puntos históricos como los cementerios de los aliados y los alemanes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Para aquellos que disfruten caminar, se recomienda una visita al Parque nacional de Samaria el cual serpentea por 18 km en una sinuosa pista al complejo vacacional de Agia Roumeli. También el lago natural de agua fresca de Kournas provee un lugar pintoresco para comer o nadar. Hay tantas cosas que ver en esta hermosa isla de Creta que una visita no será suficiente.
