Nous avons passé un très bon séjour sur l'île de Kéa et profité pleinement de la maison. La vue est magnifique, la piscine très agréable et les hôtes particulièrement sympathiques.
Comfortable apartment for two adults and one baby. Great location with amazing 270 degree views. Nice pool for relaxing during the heat of August.
Host was welcoming and around but not in the way if we needed anything.
Pol's parents Vasilis and Maria were extremely gracious and friendly hosts. They checked on us occasionally to make sure all was going well, provided information on good restaurants and beaches on the island, and gave us pears from their garden! We were able to rent their vehicle during our stay - a vehicle is necessary for getting around the island and also to the house, which is about 4km from the port. We stayed on the ground floor - Villa Thea. The house was airy with a great view, comfortable and equipped with air conditioning, wi-fi, a fridge, stove with oven, cutlery and pots for cooking. The pool was spotlessly clean and gorgeous. We had a wonderful time and would love to return someday. Thank you to Polina and her parents for sharing their lovely home for a wonderful holiday!
This is a stunning, well appointed and tranquil villa. We were extremely impressed!
The island of Kea is gorgeous, a short ferry from the mainland and about 2 hours total from Athens. The villa is a 5 minute drive up a unmetalled road from the port, where a few car rental companies reside. There are many gorgeous restaurants in the town of Voulgaris 2 minutes drive from the villa.
The apartment has a lovely clean feel to it, with comfy chairs, a large dining table and well stocked kitchen including an espresso machine, milk frother and, large fridge/freezer. perfect for Late Freddo's by the pool. The apartment is air conditioned, has good wifi and a small TV.
Outside is where it really shines. The view is amazing, the sunset framed perfectly from the pool, and the pool area is very private and shaded in parts. The pool was extremely clean and not too chlorinated, cleaned once a day.
There is no doubt we would look to return for a relaxing holiday to soak up some sun, enjoy the wonderful food and drink and to wind down.
Great appartement, very nicely decorated and 100% like the pictures. It's also very close to the port and has all necessary amenities. We felf very welcomed and both Pol and her parents we very kind and helpful. We highly recommend any traveller to stay there!
Was a ver pleasant experience staying at Petra House. The place is bright and cozy with all amenities you need and the hosts were super welcoming and accommodating. Would gladly recommend the place further!
