Superb holiday and villa
We have just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Elisabeth where we enjoyed an amazing and comfortable stay. The villa is well equipped and spacious inside. All rooms bar one have air conditioning and it is a paradise for children - mine decided to take the top floor with their own roof terrace! I was thrilled that the villa has electric gates making it all the safer for the children to explore the grounds. The views are spectacular! The village has several tavernas and are very close by. And Elisabeth is on hand at any time of the day (or night) - an excellent hostess! We will most definitely be returning - thank you Elisabeth and Manolis for a great holiday and introduction to Crete.
My dearest Natalie thank you so much for your kind words! It was such a pleasure to meet you and I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. You were all perfect!
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!
My dearest Michelle,
thank you so much! It was lovely having you here, you were all great. Give my love to all of your amazing family and especially my big love Lilly!!
See Greece among Greeks
In my ideal vacation, I never hear or see other Americans, or even hear much of my own language spoken. I like to feel that I'm part of whatever place I'm in, and while that's an impossible ideal, certain towns and regions are still untouched enough by tourism to make it nearly possible, and Elizabeth's house in Petrokefali is just such a place. Elizabeth made us feel completely welcome--as welcome, really, as a friend would be. She gave us things that were made by her or on her farm: oregano, eggs, raki, & olive oil, and with her perfect English, she was able to give us the information we needed in order to find our way around southern Crete. We loved eating in the taverna in Petrokefali, shopping for groceries in Moires, playing with Elizabeth's puppies and kittens, gathering eggs, sitting by the pool, driving to nearby beaches, and talking to Elizabeth and her husband. It was a very memorable and pleasant visit, and anyone who wants to experience real life in Greece would, I think, have a wonderful time here.
a cosy paradise
We had such a wonderful time in this house which is just perfect for 3 couples. The swimming pool is appreciable after a day out and the place to eat and cook outside ( with the bbq ) is very pleasant. The surroundings are quiet and yet we're close to everything: the village of Petrokefalis is at 15 mns' walk with a nice restaurant we often tested. By car, we can reach the pleasant beach of Komos in 5 mns and the village of Matala in10-15 mns. The owner, Elli, is so warm and helpful. Any time we had a question, she answered immediately, everything we needed was provided for, always with a humorous touch. We'll certainly come back.
Perfect ressourcing holidays
The villa was full equiped and the garden with the bbq and the pool were ideal for the end of the day.
Elizabeth and Manolis were soo nice and always available for any request.
