About the property

We welcome you to Villa Petramithia!!

Trying to describe Villa Petramithia words appear too little and adjectives too short...

This residence invites you and challenges you to live here, even for a short while, no matter the reason for your visit to Crete....

The case is not simple tourist accommodation constructed for this reason alone....

This residence is the fulfillment of a dream of a person..Who with a lot of love and empathy…Paying attention on every detail placed in this house, over time, whatever she loved...Whatever inspired her….Whatever she admired and made her everyday life easier.

The area of Plaka where the villa is built is not even her place of birth.

She found herself there... Fell in love with the the journey to arrive decided over time to find the ideal spot in the area to build the house of her dreams..

She chose a land of ten hectares opposite the White Mountains....

On the slope of a mountain combining contact with nature with unobstructed views and access to sea..

Starting from there she built a luxury residence of four levels..

Made entirely of stone..

Where each level expresses a separate positive emotional state..

So that a whole good life can have its space in this house..

Suitable spaces for a whole group of friends who wish to be together and enjoy themselves faraway from noise and daily obligations.

Spaces that can offer hospitality to a family within an atmosphere that will help then escape routine inside a hospitable house of high standards and aesthetics.

Enjoying moments of peace and quiet with all aromas, sounds and images of original and wild Cretan nature.

Ideal to offer hospitality to a secret great love affair.

In a mix of many elements of the Cretan beauty and nature.

In a combination of little and great moments.

Villa Petramithia was built creating its own story!

It awaits you to write your own script and experience..

Your own special moments in it..

It offers you the promise to inspire you, taking over a special place in your memories!

Inviting you at the same time to visit again , to continue your story or begin a new one!

Experiencing many nights in this house, praying that the morning will not come and many moons will not set, we thought that many people deserve such moments ... To feel their own personal history and escape everyday well-predictable reality

For this reason we decided to open Villa Petramithia to all visitors

It is ready to accommodate you anytime for as long as you wish !!

About Maria Psycharaki

The name of the villa was chosen by the owner because of Trimithia tree and the stone (petra) that villa has been constructed.

The Trimithia tree located in one of the western terraces of the villa, creating a permanent shadow on the small this stone square.

The Trimithia tree is one of the oldest trees.

In the link below you will see the Trimithia tree be displayed in the currency of the Minoan civilation:

Maria Psycharaki purchased this villa in 2004

Guestbook comments from the manager

Left on Aug 22, 2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

Just returned from a week in Plaka staying in beautiful Villa Petramithia. It was perfect in every way for the eight of us staying there. Inside is very spacious, with every amenity you could need, and lots of sun terraces to enjoy the gorgeous mountain views.Outside is the very large pool area, gardens , barbecue and even a pizza oven! Panos was very welcoming, and explained everything we needed to know. We did not hire a car as we are keen walkers, but I suppose hilly area could be difficult for some. Centre of Plaka with several tavernas and supermarkets is about 20 minute walk and Almiryda beach about 30 minutes. Thank you very much Panos and Maria - we would love to return one day

A really beautiful house in an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

A super-relaxing week in this wonderful spot with 6 adults, 2 young children and a small baby. Masses of space for sitting out and savouring the lovely views towards the White Mountains and down to the sea (though could have done with one roofed terrace as we had a couple of days of rain while we there and were forced to retreat indoors).

The pool was lovely and but the location is also great for nearby sweet family friendly beaches. Good local tavernas in Plaka who also do takeaway meals. Maria was superbly helpful. She efficiently averted disaster when we left a piece of luggage behind at the end.... she pulled out all the stops and got it over to the airport by taxi in the nick of time. Thank you Maria, what a star!

Lovely vistas, spacious accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and pool with plenty of room for 10 people to visit and not be the least crowded. The owner had local produce and bread to welcome us to the villa. There's several small grocery shops in town. Wifi coped with a lot of usage. The balcony views were stunning. Lovely spot for a true Retreat.

A stunning villa with breathtaking views ......

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a fantastic stay at the villa Petramithia. With one of the most stunning views and beautiful pool area and gardens, we were so sad to have had to leave. The villa is lovely and with every home comfort you need. Thank you to Maria and Panos for all their help and advice which was brilliant. We hope to return again next year.

Outstanding,High End Luxury Villa

  • 5 of 5

The photographs of this villa do not do it justice! The views are outstanding,the location(near to delightful beaches,snorkeling cove and village) is second to none,the accommodation is comfortable and superbly equipped and I cannot hesitate to recommend an amazing holiday in this delightful and original villa.Everything in the villa is of superior quality from the bathrooms and thick fluffy towels to the kitchen equipment. The owner was charming,welcoming us to his villa with a settling pack of local produce and a welcome drink,as well as local information on the area.The air con in the bedrooms was very welcome,as it was so hot when we visited,and the pool was just delightful. The views from this villa are truly outstanding,particularly at sunset. If you are looking for a holiday in a luxury villa close by to the sea and excellent restaurants....the look no further!

Beautiful Villa in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Petramithia exceeded our expectations! It is a beautiful, well appointed villa. The nearby town of Plaka is charming and has tavernas and markets. And the nearby beach town of Almyrida has everything one would need for a beach holiday. Lastly, the owner, Panos, was charming and helpful. Very highly recommended!!

Nearest Airport
35 Kilometres
Chania airport
Car: necessary

Plaka has about 400 permanent residents.

Has a beautiful main square where it collects the interest of all visitors, since this is the point of local and foreign meeting in cafes or coffee shops of the square.

Residents Plaka working on their farms and the production of olive oil and wine or raki in the region is widespread.

In local shops and tavernas will find very good local wine, not only to drink during your stay there, but to take with you.

Plaka is 23 km from Chania. You will follow the highway to Rethymnon, turn left at the exit to Kalives, you will pass first Kalyves after Almyrida and then ascend to the hill above the village.

Labels and signs are sufficient .

Plaka is ideal for holidays for those who really want to relax and enjoy nature and the less touristy nature of Crete, but being away from larger resorts such as Kalyves, Georgioupolis or Chania.

You will enjoy your olidays in Plaka with your family, alone or with your mate, if you want to have more privacy and romantic moments admiring the sunset.

In addition, the surrounding nature, beautiful and unpredictable, offers the opportunity to meet her one wandering towards the sea, to explore about 215 sea caves, so it is an ideal place for cave-diving and amateur cavers and rocky beaches the.

Going to the hinterland, you can see the olive groves and vineyards or wildlife with rich vegetation.

The village allows one to enjoy the sea in Almyrida beach, which is about 1 km., go hiking in nearby routes to other villages or simply relax in an environment of simple, quiet, pleasant, to experience the lifestyle of its residents and to try traditional dishes.
