“Idyllic place, charming rural villa with lovely swimming pool”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was a wonderful villa, with a charming rustic decor. All three rooms (plus the mezzanine which can sleep two) are very nicely decorated but also include modern conveniences such as A/C. The pool is fantastic, spacious enough for a good swim and also including a kid's area which is only 60cms deep. The host was very friendly and helpful and made it easier for the children with baby chair and beds being made available. The location is beautful, atop a hill surrounded by olive trees and nothing else, very quiet, and yet only 10 minutes away from the busy beach resort areas. Overall, a wonderful stay, and highly recommended

“Perfect villa”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The perfect villa in a perfect location. The villa has a nice garden and a lot of olive trees. it is very well equipped, spacious, beautiful furniture and comfortable. We traveled with two small children and the owner provided us with baby beds and chairs. There is a small village close by that has couple of taverns where you can eat.

“Perfect country villa in Western Crete”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had a wonderful 2 weeks stay at Villa Petra II. It is a large property near Vrysses, roughly halfway between Chania and Rethymno, so it made a great base to explore this part of Crete. We had excellent directions and a map, because otherwise it would not be easy to find! It's a large new villa, but buit in traditional style and furnished accordingly. There's a beautiful pool and lovely gardens, and you're completely surrounded by olive groves and there are no close neighbours. From the back of the house there is an incredible view of the white mountains of Crete, Lefka Ori. The kitchen is well equipped and the rest of the house very comfortable. We had fun cooking a chicken on the outdoor grill, collecting some old wood from the road into the property. There's a small village called Maza within walking distance, with a great taverna and a tiny 14th century church with orginal frescoes.

The owner, Gregory, can only be described as unbelieveable. Here are just a few of the things he did:

- On arrival, he was assembling a fan because a previous guest had mentioned the living room was very hot (only the bedrooms have air conditioning) - an instant response to a comment here in tripadvisor!
- He gave us plenty of advice on which places to visit, including beaches and helpful advice about where to buy food.
- When the internet ran out he arranged a top-up card for us (which we found impossible to find on our own).
- When a friend and her toddler joined us for the second week, he brought in a baby bed and a high chair in case we needed them
- He arranged for a taxi to take one of us back to the airport
- I parked the car in the wrong spot in Chania, and got a parking fine. As we didn't know what to do, Gregory took the money and paid the fine for us in Chania, saving us a lot of hassle
- The villa was beautifully serviced twice a week and he supervised this in person.

The attention to detail and this level of help really made our stay. For anyone who wants to get away from it and just relax in a beautiful place, with lovely views and a nice pool, with a beach not too far away then this is just perfect.

Thanks so much Gregory!

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our villa and enjoyed your time in Crete. We appreciate all the feedback we receive and use it to make improvements so that our guests have the best stay possible. Since receiving your feedback we have equipped the villa with several fans so that our guests can choose to use these on particularly hot days in addition to the air-conditioning units.
Thank you again and we look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.
