Relax in comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the villa. The villa was very clean and the beds were very comfortable and every thing we needed and more was supplied and the welcome pack was much appreciated. The villa is very well located, with sea and mountain views. Christine and Peter are great hosts and there was plenty of information available in the villa of places to visit etc. If you want a relaxing holiday and just want to chill out then I have no qualms in recommending Chrisipetra Villa.

Fantatic villa and perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on the lovely island of Crete and were welcomed by Violet & Willie who had come to collect us with our hire car for the week - perfect start by warm, helpful people.

After a 40 minute drive we arrived at the Christi-Petra Villa and what a first impression! We were welcomed shortly after by Christine & Peter who from the moment we met them were warm, friendly and very genuine.

We had a tour of the property and given lots of advice about local history, bars, supermarkets and things to be careful of including the local tipple Raki ha ha.

We spend our time exploring the island and would chill out in the evening watching films in a beautiful rustic living room. My daughter was really happy with a strong reliable WIFI system and access to Netflix.

The villa is without doubt the best we have stayed in and having travelled all over the world that is a real statement of how immaculate this property is presented & maintained.

The bedrooms have pristine linen, the kitchen was a home from home and the fridge that delivered ice and cool water was used constantly. The pool, sun terrace, pool bar and surrounding gardens we all superb, against a mountain backdrop running down to the sea over looking the little harbour town of Milatos.

I have no negative comments about the villa and our hosts spend a night of their own time taking me and my wife for a lovely meal of local food and yes a glass of Raki. It was a wonderful evening and very enjoyable.

I would highly recommend all my family and friends to stay at this villa and we are planning to return in 2017.

Thank you to Christine and Peter for a perfect family holiday and for recommending Violet and Willie to organise our hire car.

Hosts very helpful and supplied generous welcome supplies to get started.Very good local restaurants and good beaches at Sissi. Handy for exploring east Crete.

A Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the villa late at night but despite this the owners were there to greet us and had supplied a very good welcome pack. They showed us around and gave lots of verbal information. The villa lies midway between Milatos and Sissi and you get a steady flow of traffic using the road in front.. The villa is very well equipped. However we did choose to buy a knife for preparation of food as the ones available were blunt - this could have been due to having a glass chopping board.

It is the outside space that has the WOW factor of the villa. It is large, interesting and offers many benefits. There are so many seating areas for different purposes eg sunbathing, relaxing, alfresco dining as well as being in the shade or the sun and we used them all. Not forgetting the 'all one depth' pool and swim up bar. It is the reason we chose the villa as living in the UK it is important you can enjoy your outside space while on holiday.

The inside of the house is kept beautifully and decorated to the owners individual style. The beds and pillows were very comfortable.

There was excellent contact from the owners when booking the villa. The air conditioning unit in the main bedroom did not work on arrival but it was fixed the next day and when the electricity went off on the day of our departure it was sorted immediately. The owners were extremely kind and allowed us to stay until 6 pm on the day of departure as we had a late flight.

From a Renter's point of view

It is advantageous to have the opportunity to read comments made by previous renters in a Visitor's Book.

Verbal information given on night of arrival should be backed up in the Welcome Book e.g. how to operate the TV.

Although there were only three DO NOTS in the Welcome book there were more given verbally which left you with a rather downcast feeling.

A beautiful feature of the garden was spot lights picking out the trees however in order to enjoy this while dining al fresco you had to walk past the sensor every five minutes. To BBQ at night it would have been beneficial to have lighting in this area.

As there was no sprinkler system for the garden this meant a trip to the villa by the owners every other night. As renters who like to self cater this meant quite a lot of intrusion just when we would be eating so to get over this we felt governed on the nights we ate out.

Owner's Response: Dear all Thank you for your review. Sorry for your small inconveniences. But if you had mentioned them on our visits i.e midweek cleans and pool clean, we would have rectified them. Best Wishes Christine and Peter

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

What a great villa that has absolutely everything you could need and if it doesn't then Peter and Christine are always there to help. The pool and surrounds are much bigger than we thought they would be so plenty of space and the bar by the pool is an added bonus and very well equipped. Would definitely stay there again. Great views to the coast and mountains and the villa was superbly well presented upon arrival.
