Villa Petra a special house in Southern Crete

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed for a week in Villa Petra and had a wonderful time thanks to the owners, a quiet location in a very small village and the overall charm of the house. Panoramic views, with plenty of outdoor space and a pool compliment this house which is equipped with everything one might need to "stay at home" and cook, bbq, relax, etc.. At the same time Villa Petra is near excellent beaches, small towns for markets and supplies, mountain villages, ancient sites and other natural attractions. If you are looking for a great place to stay in southern Crete this is an excellent option.
We can't thank the owners enough for their hospitality and opening this home to us. It is our hope to return for a much longer stay in the future.

Wonderfully relaxing, with most hospitable owners.

  • 5 of 5
We had a superb relaxing week here. The house is large, and with only an outside staircase, is like 2 flats. This would make it ideal for 2 couples or families, as each would have their own space and privacy. It is fairly simply furnished, but as you will be spending all your waking hours outside, this is irrelevant (but don't miss the ancestral photographs downstairs). The views across to the coast are stunning, especially from the balconies. The largest one gets dappled sunlight all day long and we had almost all our meals here. The garden is beautiful with seating to suit every need and time of day and lots of flowering plants and fruit trees. The pool is small, but big enough to swim round in circles so you can fool yourself that you have deserved your evening barbecue! The best bit is that it is fresh unchlorinated water in the pool - when the pump is on, fresh water flows in at one end and out the other to irrigate the olive grove further down the hill! The barbecue is large enough to cook for the whole village, and there is also a wood fired oven. I would have loved to try cooking pizza in this but somehow never got round to buying the ingredients.
If you want to see a lot of Crete, this is probably not the best place as it is not near the main tourist sights, but once you arrive, you won't want to tear yourselves away. At least that's what happened to us and we're not lazing by the pool type of people. We did manage a trip to Knosos and to Heraklion, about 80 or 90 minutes away. Towns with a good selection of shops are about 20 minutes drive. There are supermarkets, but ignore these and try the local shops - people are friendly and helpful and everything is fresh. There are tavernas in the next village, but we never tried them as we enjoyed barbecuing so much.
I've left the best bit till last - the owners. We arrived at about 2 a.m. and Vagelis and Stella were extremely welcoming, even apologising for keeping us waiting while they came from their home, when I hadn't rung them until we had actually arrived! Even at that time of night, they took time to show us around and make sure that we were settled in. Throughout our stay we were showered with gifts of home grown produce – melons, raki, olive oil (from the aforementioned olive grove), apple cake. They even brought friends and cooked us a barbecue one evening! Nowhere else in the world have we experienced such genuine friendliness and generosity.Book this old family home – you won’t regret it!

Villa Petra - ein Traumurlaub auf Kreta

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten zum 2.Mal einen wunderschönen Urlaub im Ort Kalohorafitis in der Nähe von Timbaki an der Südküste Kretas in einer liebevoll eingerichteten modernisierten Steinvilla. Es war für 4 Wochen wieder mal ein Traumurlaub auf Kreta. Das Dorf liegt sehr nah des Ida Gebirges und man kann zum Psiloritis oder zur Kamares Höhle wandern. Ein geländegängiges Auto ist vom Vorteil, so kann man die Schotterstraßen bis auf 2000m hoch fahren und von dort aus wandern. In den Vori und Timbaki kann man sehr gut einkaufen, auch auf dem Markt immer freitags. Zu den Stränden nach Kokkinos Pirgos, Matala oder Agia Galini ist es nicht weit. Das Haus bietet viel Platz und ist komfortabel eingerichtet mit schönen Gartenmöbeln, Es gibt kostenlos WLAN und internationales und deutsches Fernsehen. Die Küche ist perfekt mit großem Backofen, Kaffeemaschine, Toaster, Saftpresse, Sandwichmaker. Es gibt frisches Olivenöl, Obst und Gemüse vom Vermieter. Der Pool ist riesig und wird ausschließlich mit Frischwasser gefüllt, also ohne Chlor. Der Garten bewässert und es gibt Zitronenbäumen und frische Kräutern. Dieses Haus ist das Beste was wir je auf Kreta hatten. Die Lage ist einzigartig in der Nähe der Berge und dem Strand. Einfach wunderschön. Carolin

We spent the second time a wonderful holiday in the village Kalohorafitis near Timbaki at the south coast of Crete in a beautifully decorated modernized stone house. It was for 4 weeks again a dream holiday in Crete. The village is very close to the Ida Mountains and you can hiking to the top of Psiloritis or to the Kamares cave. An off-road car is the advantage, so you can see the dirt roads high up at 2000m and hike from there. In Vori and Timbaki you can buy, even on the market every Friday. The beaches of Kokkinos Pyrgos, Matala and Agia Galini or Georgios are not far away. The house has plenty of space and is comfortably furnished also with beautiful garden furniture. There are free Wi-Fi and International and German television. The kitchen is perfect with a large oven, coffee machine, toaster, juicer, sandwich maker. There are fresh olive oil, fruit and vegetables from the owner. The owner is very friendly and lives in Timbaki. The pool is huge and only filled with fresh water from the fountain, without chlorine. The garden watered and there are lemon trees and fresh herbs. This home is the best we have ever had in Crete. The location is unique in the proximity of the mountains and the beach. Just beautiful.Carolin

Sehr schönes Haus und super netter Vermieter

  • 5 of 5
Die Villa ist sehr schön gelegen und bietet eine herrliche Sicht bis hinüber zu den Paximadia. Es gibt am Haus und im großen, liebevoll angelegten Garten viele Plätze zum Sitzen in der Sonne und im Schatten. Auch der Pool ist ausreichend, so dass man durchaus mal einen halben oder ganzen Tag dort verbringen kann. Alles wirkt sehr gepflegt und wir können die Villa guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen. Leider gibt es in Kalochorafitis keinerlei Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und auch keine Taverne. Alles muß mit dem Auto erledigt werden. Das sollte man bei der Planung berücksichtigen. Erwähnen möchte ich noch die Gastfreundschaft des Vermieters, der jederzeit ein offenes Ohr und so manchen Tipp parat hatte.
Fazit: jederzeit wieder!

Sensationelle Unterkunft mit erstklassigem Service

  • 5 of 5
Es ist einfach eine wunderbare Unterkunft. Wir hatten eine wahnsinnig schöne Zeit dort. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Der Ausblick von der Sonnenterrasse ist grandios und die Gartenanlage und der Pool laden zum relaxen ein. Habe bisher niemals eine solch schöne Unterkunft und einen so gastfreundlichen Vermieter erlebt. Die Unterkunft ist sehr gepflegt, sauber und in einem idyllischen ruhigen Bergdorf gelegen. Gerne wieder.

sehr schönes Haus und Garten

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren schon einige male auf Kreta, doch so ein schönes Haus mit einem liebevoll angelegten Garten hatten wir noch nie. Unsere Kinder und wir haben uns rund um wohl gefühl. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt, ein großer Pool und viel Platz im Haus haben den Aufenthalt unvergesslich gemacht. Der Ort liegt etwa 10 km von den Stränden entfernt in einem ursprünglich kretischen Dorf, wo man wirklich noch in Ruhe seinen Urlaub geniesen kann. Ein PKW ist unbedingt erforderlich. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es zu Genüge in den Nachbardörfern. Die Vermieter sind die nettesten Griechen, die wir je kennengelernt haben. Sie bemühen sich sehr, den Aufenthalt perfekt zu machen. Wir können das Ferienhaus nur empfehlen und werden sicher wiederkommen.

Kalohrafitis is a veträumtes village on the southern slopes of the Ida Mountains, on the edge of the Messara plain. It is located 230m above sea level. The climate in the region is very mild throughout the year: the height ensures a light, cool breeze in summer, so the game very pleasant in winter there is very little rainfall and the average temperature is between 15-20 ° C, that rarely drop below 10 ° C on the coldest day.

The village offers an indescribably wonderful view to the Libyan sea and the olive - embossed and orange trees landscape.

Particular note are the panoramic views of the still snow-capped peaks in the spring of Ida Mountains.

The small idyllic village, surrounded by unspoilt nature, is an ideal base for those seeking peace, hiking and nature lovers and individualists.

In Kalohorafitis can discover the original Crete.

The healthy climate of a Cretan village near the mountains, which is located only a short distance from the towns Zaros, Kamares and Voroi, is a perfect location for exploring the region.

Nearby, there are some interesting, archaeological excavations, as Gortyn, Phaistos and Agia Triada.

Beautiful beaches such as Kokkinos Pyrgos, Kalamaki, kommos and Matala can be achieved in the near future. Here can be wonderfully the Cretan sun and enjoy the Libyan Sea. The weather in the south of Crete is sunnier than anywhere else in Europe, with higher water temperatures due to its proximity to North Africa and the Libyan.

None of these beaches is crowded, mass tourism is examined here in vain.

Near Kalochorafitis are some traditional villages where celebrations take place with Cretan music and dance in the summer months.
