About Aristidis and Birgit Matthaiakis

It all began a few years ago with the restoration of my grandparents’ natural stone house, Villa Chrissie Marie in Pitsidia.

It gives me great pleasure to use my knowledge and abilities in order to help other people make their dreams come true … of an original and traditional Greek home set in the midst of a fascinating landscape.

Therefore, since that first time, I have restored and built a lot number of houses as well as undertaken work on behalf of the municipality.

Thus we created unique holiday homes, and we would like to introduce you to them on the following pages. My German wife Birgit is looking forward to your enquiry and will be glad to help with further information on our natural stone holiday homes – for rent and for sale.

Aristidis and Birgit Matthaiakis purchased this villa in 2013

Great Place to be

  • 5 of 5


We were a group of 8 ( 4 adult and 4 teenagers 14-16 yrs) that stayed in Villa Thalassa for 3 weeks in augus 2011. We ahd a superb time, not in the least because of the quality of the villa. The description as give on the site was very accurate, it is indeed a beautiful villa. Impecably cleaned, very well equipped (incredibly well equipped kitchen!!!), a regularly cleaned swimmingpool, more than anough place for all of us to have our own privacy inside as well as outside, a very nicely built outside eating arrangement. Aristide and Birgit and theur daughter Chrissie were the best hosts ever, providing us with all the information and tips we needed, always prepared to help us. We were invited to help Ari with the grapes picking (he makes a very nice raki...)with all the other tenants of his other houses and share a big dinner at his house. Great experience! We loved Matala and it's atmosphere, the beach at Agi Galini, Delfinos restaurant at Kalimakis Beach, touring on the motor bike via the coastal road to Lendas, trips to heraklion and Rethminon. The girls (at 16) were perhaps a bit disappointed at the possibilities to go out to clubs and bars, but we happiky drove them to Chersonissos a few times (and they took the bus themselves from Pitsidia), so that was solved. We would recommend villa Thalassa to everyone! (no very little children tough, because of the swimming pool)

A Holiday to remember... a place to return to...

  • 5 of 5

A last minute decision to get away, a jewel in Crete found...The property is beautiful, the views are stunning, but what truly made the holiday was the warm hospitality of Brigitte, Aristedis and Chrissie.

The weather was hot, the wind blew, the food was great. This area of Crete is truly unspoilt, the 60's hippie hotspot of Matala with its caves and amazing sunset. The tuesday night concert in Pitsidia... all great fun and full of interesting characters !!!

We will be going back...

Ein Traum!!!

  • 5 of 5

Eine tolle Villa und tolle Gastgeber! Wir haben schon so einige

Ferienhäuser gemietet, dieses hat alle übertroffen! Pure Begeisterung!!

Die Küche, da gab es nicht ein Teil was fehlte. Auch kleine Details wie

Geschirrspültaps, Waschmittel etc. waren vorhanden. Der Infinity- Pool

und der Ausblick zur jeder Tageszeit, ein Highlight. Dazu die Gastgeber Birgit & Ari super nett und immer mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle.

Wir haben uns lange nicht mehr so wohl gefühlt. Dafür möchten wir uns nochmals bedanken, denn dieses Team vor Ort macht

den Urlaub perfekt.

Ein Kompliment auch auch die Autovermietung sowie den reibungslosen Ablauf!!! Auch hier kam die Empfehlung und Abwicklung von Birgit und Ari... TOP, besser geht es nicht.

5 Sterne sind eigentlich zu wenig! Von uns gibt es 7.

Absolut traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

Die Angaben im Online-Inserat entsprachen absolut dem was wir vorgefunden hatten. Der Zustand des Hauses war sehr gut, es war sehr gepflegt und super sauber. Die Vermieter waren sehr nett, freundlich und hilfsbereit und vor allem immer erreichbar. Wir können das Domizil wärmstens empfehlen, es war ein sehr schöner und entspannter Urlaub. Sehr schön war der nahegelegene Komos-Beach, alles was sonst noch wichtig und empfehlenswert ist sagen euch die Vermieter und deren Aussagen passten zu 100 Prozent.

Wir werden das Domizil gerne wieder in Anspruch nehmen und danken für einen unserer schönsten Urlaube.

Oase des Wohlgefühls

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Thea in Pidsidia: Ein Traum. Wir (Groß und Klein) haben von unseren drei Wochen jeden einzelnen Tag, ohne irgendwelche Einschränkungen in dem wunderschönen Anwesen genossen. Dank der äußerst liebe-, geschmackvollen und individuellen Gestaltung und hochwertigen Einrichtung haben wir uns gleich wie Zuhause gefühlt. Man merkt, dass hier nicht einfach ein Ferienhaus für Touristen hingesetzt wurde, sondern die Villa Thea eine Oase des Wohlgefühls sein soll. Es fehlt an nichts.

Wir haben bei unserer Buchung in Rezensionen gelesen, dass die Bilder der Villa Thea (die ja schon für sich sprechen), nicht die Besonderheit und Schönheit des Hauses und Anwesens wiedergeben würden. Dies konnten wir nicht glauben, bis wir zum ersten Mal selbst das Anwesen betraten und sprachlos waren. Wir sind durchgängig Ferienhausurlauber in diesem Preissegment und haben schon wirklich tolle Häuser bewohnt, aber die Villa Thea haben wir sofort in unser Herz geschlossen.

Die wunderbare Poolanlage ist sehr gepflegt, wird regelmäßig gesäubert (genau wie das Haus auch) und tut einfach nur gut. Drumherum gibt es unterschiedlichste Liege- und Sitzflächen in der Sonne oder auch im Schatten, an denen man Zeit verbringen kann. Wir haben viel gelesen und uns einfach nur wohl gefühlt - mit einem atemberaubenden Blick auf das lybische Meer und die Berge.

Zum Dorf sind es wirklich nur einige Gehminuten. Dort gibt es kleine Tavernen, kleine Supermärkte, einen Bäcker und eine schöne Atmosphäre. Zum wunderschönen Strand fährt man besser mit dem Auto, auch nur einige Minuten. Ein Auto zu mieten ist sehr empfehlenswert - die Insel ist in dieser Gegend zu schön, um sie nicht etwas großräumiger zu erkunden.

Die Villa Thea, der tolle Pool, der unvergleichliche Ausblick, die traumhafte Umgebung, das sprichwörtlich helle Licht, die kretische Gastfreundschaft und vor allem die sooooo sympathischen und unvergleichlich aufmerksamen Vermieter (Birgit, Ari & Chrissie) taten ihr Übriges, dass wir diesen Urlaub in wertvollster Erinnerung behalten werden.

Das Beste kommt aber bekanntlich zum Schluss: Wir haben schon unseren nächsten Aufenthalt in der Villa Thea gebucht und dürfen wieder kommen. Die Vorfreude Birgit, Ari & Chrissie wiederzusehen und die Villa Thea zu genießen ist bei uns allen unendlich groß!!

Es grüßen Maja, Piet & Kids

Urlaub für die Seele

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Thea ist nicht nur das schönste Ferienhaus Kretas, sondern einfach ein Traum! Morgens schon, wenn man aufwacht, wird man begrüßt von den warmen und harmonischen Farben des Hauses sowie der äußerst liebevoll und dekorativen Einrichtung. Tagsüber lässt sich immer wieder in einer der vielen lounge-igen Ecken lässig entspannen, die Fotos der Pools sprechen für sich und Abends kann man entweder zu zweit einen romantischen Abend genießen oder mit Freunden einen geselligen Abend in der großzügigen Open-air-Küche verbringen. Der lange Holztisch war unser Favorit - die rollbaren und äußerst bequemen Sessel ein Highlight.

Die Ausstattung ist super - die Fotos verraten fast alles!

Auch die Umgebung ist perfekt: Abgelegen von den Touristenhochburgen im Norden ist Pitsidia ein netter, kleiner Ort mit einer angenehmen Mischung aus Einheimischen und Touristen. Es gibt einiges zu entdecken, nette kleine Läden und v.a. gemütliche Tavernen in gehbarer Distanz, wo man richtig lecker und günstig essen kann.

Die Strände in der Nähe sind sehr schön, ein Teil mit Liegen, Schirmen und Bar/Restaurant, aber auch wilde, breite Strandabschnitte. Wir sind manchmal morgens vor dem Frühstück schnell zum Strand (5 min. mit dem Auto) und freuten uns dann auf einen heißen Kaffee und ein leckeres griechisches Frühstück mit spektakulärem Ausblick zurück in der Villa Thea.

Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in alle Richtungen sind vielseitig (wenn man sich dann mal vom Haus trennen kann.. ;-).

Alles in allem bietet die Villa Thea einen richtigen Urlaub für die Seele und wir wünschen uns ein baldiges Wiedersehen.

Herzlichen Dank auch an die lieben Vermieter Birgit und Ari, die hier für ihre Gäste mit viel Geschmack und Liebe fürs Detail ein kleines Paradies geschaffen haben und immer mit tollen Tipps und Ratschlägen zur Seite standen.
