“The perfect place to destress!”
Reviewed 19 January 2012 for a stay in October 2011

What a beautiful house on an even more beautiful location . We have enjoyed every minute of it, the peace and quiet, the awesome views and surreal sunsets.

“Just the most beautiful spot”
Reviewed 5 January 2012 for a stay in June 2010

The house is breathtaking, set at a high point with ocean views to both east & west. The large circular sitting room is immediately comfortable, with doors opening onto a terrace at the front, and a garden behind. The trees were heavy with apricots when we visited. The whole place has been built with attention to detail, so that it’s easy to settle in and really relax.

There are walks in every direction though we used the car to make our way to the several delightful beaches around the island. The nearest had no other bathers, it felt like our own private haven. When the sun got too hot we made our way back to the house, and gazed from the swimming pool at the panorama.

Getting groceries and catering for ourselves was a pleasure, but there are several tavernas in the little town below, and a couple of really excellent restaurants too. The people were friendly, the food was good and the surroundings just lovely.

It’s hard to imagine an easier place to sleep at night. With no light pollution the dark skies are spectacular and the views at sunrise are a tonic for the traveller. We loved our holiday at Petaloutha and we all talk of going again soon.

Liked best: The breathtaking views
Liked least: The driveway is steep & twists sharply, but the hilltop views make it worthwhile.

We have stayed many times at this house. It is a fantastic spot. Outstanding views, beautifully quiet and peaceful. Untouristed at the untouristed end of a relatively untouristed island. That is why we love it. The service is great and the amenities absolutely fine. It is clean, very well kept and full of character. A real gem.

“Petaloutha - dream vacation in a life time”

My husband and I stayed at Petaloutha for our honeymoon. It was the best travel decision I've ever made. The villa is located high up on a hill so we have a panoramic view of the island and the surroundings. Sunrise, sunset are there for us everyday without leaving the villa. My favourite scenery is of course the view of the pool blending into the sea, with the trees and the island across coming to me in such a sensation. A paradise on earth? Indeed! The house is nicely decorated with hand crafted pottery. Despite being on an island, we find the house equipped with all the things that make it feel like home.

The owner Antony and his property managers on the island are lovely people. They attended to every little detail to prepare us for the trip and make sure we have a great experience while staying at Petaloutha. There's a letter to us from Antony when we arrived with warm welcoming message and a list of all the nearby restaurants with comments. Inside the villa there's direction and information on every aspect of daily life. You will also find lots of maps, books, videos that are interesting and useful.

Overall it was a great rental property and unforgettable experience for us. We would love to go back and would definitely recommend to our family and friends.
