Petra Nova Villas is one of the best home lettings I've been in. Perched on a hill it's only a short walk to Mochlos a fishing village with Tavernas, a small grocery store and a small beach good for swimming and snorkling. Petra Nova Villas has a beautiful view and is nicely shaded on its two terraces by trees. The interior is clean, neat and modern and the 2 shower rooms for a family of 4 ideal. The WIFI is good ... especially close to the router box in the main living spaces and immediately outside the front door where there are two chairs and a table. The outside terraced furniture under the tree with that beautiful Mochlos view is what sold it for us. Eleni was a terrific host who sent us on our merry way with a very kind gift of local olive oil.
The Petra Nova villas are beautiful. The view was amazing. The villas were clean, decorated beautifully & the kitchen was fully equipped. We were greeted with a bowl of just pick grapes & a carafe of raki, a very nice welcome. Having the villa cleaned half way through the week was unexpected but appreciated. Mochlos is a wonderful village with excellent tavernas & beautiful views. I would definitely recommend Petra Nova Villas for your stay in Mochlos.
My wife and me stayed in one of the PetraNova Villas for 2 weeks in September 2012. The stone villas are very new, there is a lot of comfort incl. W-LAN, Air Conditioning, Refrigerator, everything is as described in the ad. Cleaning service is perfect. The villas are managed by the owner family, they are very friendly and helpful in all aspects (including tips for touristic activities and a very nice booklet with everything you need to know). They made us feel highly wellcome. Communication in English (and French) is no problem at all, during preparation period of our vacation all emails were answered quickly and very professional. Once you decide to pass your vacation in Mochlos I would not hesitate to recommend this to everyone who is looking for some comfort and a calm surrounding and is willing to use a car. We really enjoyed our vacation there very much.

Every season is peculiar in this village, bursting over with energy, since it offers special experiences! During the whole year everyone can visit the archaeological site which is located on a small island 100 metres away from land. You can reach it either swimming or by the traditional boat! Taking a close look at the long-time archaeological excavations, the journey back in the Minoan Civilisation is inevitable. While sailing the lovers of the sea can discover the small islands, the steep slopes and the caves of Castella and the solitary beaches in the north of the island. Likewise the paths, the ravines and the mountains surrounding the area of Mochlos are suitable for hiking fans all year long!
