5/5 Excellent

And ..... relax !!!
This was our second time of visiting Crete and our favourite Villa of the four we have stayed at to date. We stayed for a week and had a fantastic time. The villa is lovely and for us we enjoyed the full experience and amenities and it was great for all of us just being able to properly relax in a peaceful non-touristy setting surrounded by olive groves. We were all very happy in the pool and with access to the internet and media equipment. The kids even enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and watching the sun go down over the mountains and then having some amazing, very clear, stargazing experiences (!) as the villa is nicely positioned in the hill above the village of Petrokefalion. The kitchen is well fitted out with all the typical gadgets and more to easily prepare family meals with all the great quality local produce on offer at this time of year. There is very easy access to the local beaches Komos, Matala and the many restaurants and bars. The local village also has restaurant’s, butchers, bakers and small supermarkets, (there are larger supermarkets in Mires or Pistidia about 10 minute drive away in opposite directions) Elizabeth is a friendly and generous host who speaks great English and was very helpful with local knowledge and advice. She was especially helpful sorting out our hire car challenge! She was also very respectful of our privacy and communicated with us before turning up at the villa. All windows and the main door have retractable insect screens which was useful in the early evenings and the air-con in each room worked fine and was much needed overnight. We found some lovely local jogging routes for our early evening runs (when it was cooler), typically through miles of olive groves! Overall, we had a great time at the villa as we able to totally relax in these surroundings and we look forward to returning in the future.

4/5 Good

Nice Villa with an awesome view
Elizabeth is very nice and helpful with everything you need and could need. The Villa is located after the Property of Elizabeth at the end of the road and a bit above. The Dogs and Cats are lovely as Elizabeth and the Villa is. Recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Villa Elisabeth, Petrokafali
We stayed for 2 weeks at the Villa Elisabeth near Pertokafali. The villa is in a beautiful part of southern Crete with outstanding views all round. Elisabeth and her husband made us feel welcome from the outset despite arriving at 12.30 am with a small RAKI (local drink). It was very hot during our stay and the air conditioning was a life saviour. The TV and internet facility was also of immense benefit. The pool was also invaluable at keeping us cool. Matala was only 15mins away and the local supermarkets were very handy too. We loved our stay there and were very sad to leave.

4/5 Good

Rural getaway, de stress and chill
We spent a delightful week at Elizabeth’s villa up in the hills with lively views. Very friendly and helpful hostess with her even more friendly dog and cats. Komos beach was exotic with crystal clear sea. It was boiling hot weather and so pleased with the air con in villa especially at night. Would definitely recommend.

5/5 Excellent

A little oasis of peace and quiet
If you don't like busy resorts and prefer something quieter and less touristy, then this is the place for you. We were a party of four (mum, dad & two teenage+ daughters). Our host, Elizabeth, asked us to message her when we were en route to Petrokefali and arranged to meet us in the village to guide us up to our villa. She was the perfect host - showing us around the villa, offering to provide us with anything we wanted and on hand for any problems or questions throughout our stay without being intrusive. Gifts of water, eggs and watermelons were a lovely touch both on arrival and throughout our stay. The villa was ample size for our needs and could have easily accommodated another 4 people. All the facilities you would expect were available: washing machine, microwave, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms and several different places to sit to eat and relax. The pool wasn't particularly large but was very welcome given the temperature throughout our stay was around 30-32 degrees. The views from the villa particularly up on the terrace were spectacular (a hire car is a necessity). Petrokefali is set in the central south of the island which is far quieter and less tourisy than the northern coastline. Having said that, there are still plenty of places to visit if you fancy venturing out. The ancient ruins of Phaistos are about a 10 minute drive away and the beaches of Matala and Kommos not much further on. The beautiful fishing town of Agai Galini has shops and plenty of restaurants and comes to life as the sun goes down. All in all a beautiful, peaceful place to relax and take in the Cretan hospitality away from hustle and bustle.
