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.
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.
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.
The villa had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday and we particularly enjoyed the outside space. The location was perfect, peaceful, yet a short walk into the local village. Communication with Elizabeth was fantastic. She made sure we had everything we needed and we felt like we were staying with friends. The surrounding area and villages were lovely but we weren't inclined to spend much time away from the villa.
Wonderful relaxing get away
Even though we arrived late at 23:00 Eli meet us with a smile on her face and was a delight to deal with the entire holiday. The local beaches are fantastic for sunbathing and swimming and Matala is awesome for food and shopping too. We spent most of our time enjoying the pool and tranquility of the local traditional village. Would absolutely recommend. Thank you Eli xxx
We spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Elizabeth in Petrokefali in early August. The Villa is great with a very good kitchen for all needs, lovely garden and dining area, with the perfect host, Elizabeth, who is extremely helpful. The Villa is in a lovely peaceful location with some beautiful beaches not too far away and some great places to dine out in the surrounding villages. Would definitely recommend!
