Why Vasilis Anastasopoulos chose Petalidi
The House is situated in my mother's village. I grew up there as a kid and spent my summer vacations. I have personal strong feelings for the area and hold excellent relations with local people.
What makes this House unique
The House is ideal for family and friends vacations. House has three main areas. First floor (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms), ground floor (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) and the garden with the two swimming pools, the BBQ, a bathroom and a kitchen with dining area. Facilities provide for friends and family to have fun all together but it also provides for private moments for relax as the two floors are autonomous. Children will have a lot of activities to do such as swimming in the sea or in the kids' swimming pool, play with toys or in the playground. We also provide baby bed lodge for infants or very small children.

Fantastic property with a marvellous host, Vasilis. Always willing to help but totally non-intrusive, The welcome meal was so good we went to the taverna it came from later in the week and were not disappointed. The vegetables in the garden were delicious and in abundance, The two cycles provided were useful for shopping trips. Fresh fish from the village on the barbecue were superb! We had a wonderful, chilled out time. There were four of us including a teenage boy who is asking to go again soon! I cannot think of anything that was wrong -it was all brilliant. Highly recommend this property,
Everything works, house is nice and clean
We had a wonderful holiday at Friends and Family House on October. Although there were 12 people in our group, we had enough space and peace for all. House has two apartments, so it was good for us. Pools were clean and everything was in good condition. Owner keeps everything in in good shape, also guests. For example, we had a nice welcome dinner and enough food for next breakfast. We swam in the sea every morning and visited Petalidi village which has good services. Thank you Vasilis!
Perfect House - Perfect Host!
Just arrived back home from a fantastic weeks stay at this gorgeous property - Vasilis the owner is without doubt the best host I have ever experienced - the perfect blend of helpful without being ever present - he's simply a phonecall or a text away if needed. The chances are though once you have found your bearings then you'll need for nothing - The house has everything - superbly equipped through-out. Great for one big family or 2 separate families as each level of the house is fully self contained with its own sitting room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms (one with ensuite) and a family bathroom and all wonderfully clean. Outside is perfect - another kitchen for preparing drinks and food for the massive BBQ (buy some lamb chops from the butchers in town - very good) with a separate shower/toilet room by the pool area to save you going inside. 2 pools perfect for the adults and the little ones (we had a 2 year old in our party) - with seating area's that make the most of the sun and indeed the shady areas to cool off - all sourrounded by lovely gardens and a vegetable plot growing tomatoes, onions and aubergines for you to enjoy. If you want a relaxing holiday and to unwind then this is the place - you need to venture out if you don't want to. If you do then the village of Petalidi is a 10-15 min stroll away or a very short hop in a taxi (3 euro's) with a taxi rank in the village for your return... Its a charming village to, with plenty of restaurants, most of which centre around the square which comes alive with Greek families in the evenings. 50 Metres from the house is a pebble beach, great for an afternoon dip in the Med..... Not that we ventured away from the house much as it had all we needed to be able to soak up the sun and relax. Thanks again Vasilis we had a fantastic holiday......... Oh forgot too - he even has 2 bikes at the property, so if like us, you didn't hire a car (we got there by private transfer) these are perfect for those quick dashes for more beer/water from the supermarket...... Like I said.... you'll be hard pushed to find something you need at the house that Vasilis hasn't thought about.
It was a pleasure being a host to such a wonderful and kind people.The property was left spotless and in excellent condition. Happy to know that David and his family had such a great time here and hope to see them again soon.
Great spot, great hosts
Vasilis did a tremendous job of making us feel welcome. We arrived to a fridge with all the essentials stocked and two trays of food for lunch.
The house was perfect for our needs - spacious, plenty of beds, very clean, good internet connection. We didn't make use of the pool, but the outside space was great.
The town of Petalidi is a short walk away with a villagey feel and a couple of bars and restaurants. Everyone was very friendly.
In short, highly recommend staying here.
Ben and his friends were the excellent guests.
Very polite, friendly and warm. They looked after the house as it was theirs and they left it in excellent condition.
Thank you Ben for your stay and we look forward to seeing you again !!
Sehr schönes, sehr gut eingerichtetes Haus in toller Lage.
Thank you very much for your words!!we wait to see you again in the future.
Wir haben gerade zu elft eine wundervolle Woche im Friends and Family House in Petalidi verbracht.
Vasilis, der Vermieter, ist sehr sympathisch, unglaublich hilfsbereit und gastfreundlich.
Begrüßt wurden wir mit einem sehr leckeren Abendessen, das für uns bereit stand. Außerdem war der Kühlschrank gefüllt mit allem, was man für das nächste Frühstück braucht.
Das Haus hat 2 separate Wohnungen, jeweils gut ausgestattet und zusätzlich noch eine Außenküche und Außendusche.
Alles ist wunderbar sauber. Handtücher gibt es sehr viele, sowohl zum Duschen, als auch für den Pool.
Es ist wirklich für alles gesorgt und an alles gedacht. Die Ausstattung mit Haushaltsgegenständen ist perfekt. Vom Sandwichmaker, über die Mikrowelle bis zur Zitruspresse ist alles vorhanden. Außerdem noch 3 Geschirrspülmaschinen und 2 Waschmaschinen.
Das Meer ist ca. 50 Meter entfernt, der Strand dort allerdings nicht ganz so schön.
In der Umgebung gibt es aber ein paar schöne Strände, die Vasilis uns empfohlen hat.
Wie schon erwähnt, ist Vasilis sehr bemüht um seine Gäste. Er ist immer erreichbar und konnte uns immer sofort weiterhelfen. Als einer unserer Freunde einen Arzt brauchte, hat er ihn sogar hingefahren und vor Ort übersetzt.
Ein Highlight war auch unser Abendessen im „O Platanos“. Eine kleine, ursprüngliche Taverne in den Bergen, die von Vasilis Familie betrieben wird und von der das „welcome dinner“ am ersten Abend stammte. Sehr zu empfehlen.
Alles in Allem eine perfekte, wunderschöne Unterkunft!
We just had an amazing week in the Friends and Family house in Petalidi with a group of eleven people. Vasilis, the host is an incredibly hospitable and helpful guy. On the day of our arrival a very fancy dinner was already set for us on the table. On top of that, the fridge was filled with everything one could ask for as the next breakfast . The house consists oft two separate apartments, each of them perfectly equipped and also with a shower and an additional barbecue kitchen . Everything was perfectly cleaned up. There are plenty of towels available either for showering and for drying of after having used the beautiful pool. All we needed was provided and catered for. Even a sandwichmaker, a microwaver, a citrus juicer as well as 3 dishwashers and 2 washing machines are available to the guests. It' s a distance of approx. 50 meter to the sea. However this beach is not that beautiful. Thankfully there are a few other very enjoyable beaches around the area, that we visited
In the surrounding area (5-10km) there are ancient hill villages with old stone cottages and where they still live the traditional Greek way of life.
The countryside is mainly farmland with olive trees and fruit orchards. There are many spectacular views from the hills across the olive groves to the sea.
A five minute walk will bring you in the centre of Petalidi, a lovely old fishing village with great character.
There are further bars and tavernas along the sea front where you can relax and watch the fishing boats come in with their catch, or just watch the sun set on the mountains across the water.
There are many shops and car hire is also available in the village.
There is a beautiful church in the centre of the village, surrounded on four sides by tavernas and cafeneos.
Other amenities include banks with International cash machines, fish market and medical centres.
The House is situated in front of a wonderful and quiet beach( 30 m) where you have the choice of swimming either on the beach or in the two swimming pools of the house.
