      Petrides Villa is absolute luxury. The attention to detail is second to none. There are so many seating and relaxation areas I exhausted myself moving around enjoying them all. Beautiful location nestled amongs olives groves & lemon groves, seaviews to front & mountains to rear. Perfect. Didn't want to come home

Bristol Couple
Villa was really nice, beds were extremely comfortable. Pool was really nice and poolside beds were comfortable. Villa was bright and nicely decorated. The views and sunsets were stunning. The only negative was the dishwasher and washing machine could do with replacing and there were really annoying dogs nearby in the street which were constantly barking and chasing cars and other dogs and people.

Family (with only pre-school children)
Really enjoyed our time at Petrides Villa. Everything was as described and pictures accurate. The outside area was perfect with plenty of comfy seating and shade. Lovely new BBQ and outside kitchen. There is now a villa behind the property which overlooks the pool area slightly but this is far enough away not to be intrusive. The views are better than the pictures show. The villa is next to a road but this was quiet and just occasional local traffic. Inside the villa is very well equipped and comfortable. The only things we were not happy with were the lack of decent curtains (each room was very bright as soon as the sun rose) and the silly key system. The keys for the exterior doors were all on a single key ring which had to be inserted into a slot for power to the whole villa. Each morning/night in order to unlock/lock the doors you had to plunge the whole house into darkness and restart oven/dishwasher/anything connected to power sockets etc. These 2 issues wouldn't stop us staying at the villa again but it would be fantastic if they could be improved.
Regarding some comments in previous reviews - the pool is tiled and in perfect condition. We did have some visits from friendly dogs but as soon as we chased them away they ran off and didn't bother us.
We loved the villa and would recommend it to anyone.

Warwickshire Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely villa - very comfortable! I would definitely recommend it. The pool was very clean, and very well tended to, but a little too cold for the adults of our group to use in October - although the chill didn't put our grandson off! We had lots of clean towels too, which was very nice. Thank you.

We only had a couple of problems...
It was a pity that the Wi-Fi didn't work at all, as my daughter had to keep up with her University assignments whilst we were there and needed internet access to enable her to do her work. Our rep told her that the signal is not very good and can be busy, but we couldn't get any access at all! A huge disappointment for the little boy too, who was desperate to use his I-Pad during the evening. It was a huge relief to discover that free Wi-Fi was available on the beach at Latchi, so all was not lost, although you have to pay for sunbeds in order to use it!

The other problem was with neighbouring dogs - 5 of them all running around the area together during the day, as well as at night. We had to chase them out of the garden several times during our stay. It was not pleasant to clear up their mess, but it had to be done. Perhaps the property could be fitted with gates to keep them out?

montrose Couple
The villa was nicely fitted out and comfortable but the pool really lets it down. The lining is cracking and loose at the deepest part of the pool, I'm sure tiling it all would be more in keeping with the "luxury" of the rest of the villa. The spa bath looked clean but after filling it and turning the bubbler on (thankfully before we entered it) we were disgusted by seeing the water fill with black mank. we have one of these baths at home and use cleaning/ sterilising tablets after every use to solve the problem of stagnant water pipes. This is a health hazard as the "mank" can contain some nasty bacteria. The pool and sun terrace were overlooked on two sides by other villas so maybe some larger screening or plants would make it more private.

Wednesbury Family (the eldest child is at school)
This was a last minute deal due to a cancellation I believe.
The directions we received were ok , however as we arrived at 2am it was not easy to locate the Villa.
The Villa itself was spectacular , spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and had all we needed.
The rep who visited was very knowledgable about the area.
We had only small issues , the smoke alarm battery needed changing, although we mentioned it, it did not get done. The barbecue only worked on the one side, the right hand side heated up the front of the barbecue and could be dangerous for children. These however were minor niggles and I would not hesitate to re-book as we had a lovely rest here.
Please note some building work is going on nearby, this however did not spoil our holiday.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to return next year.

Shrewsbury Group
The villa was exactly as described.It was stunningly beautiful I side and out. The view was spectacular. We really didn't want to come home. The only thing we would fault was the hire car, which pulled to the left, the brakes were weak and the handbrake didn't really work. Plus it struggled to get up the steep hills required to reach Argaka. This became a bit of a quirk of the holiday. Yiannis who owns the villa also has a hire shop and took care of our son when he hired a ped to be more independent and couldn't have been nicer. If you want a good meal, go to Steni to restaurant on the main roadside (sorry can't rambert the name) Mill something. The meals are really tasty and good value for money. Plus the Chef Dory is really friendly, well all the staff are. Fantastic holiday all round. Beautiful and relaxing. Argaka is really quiet and peaceful. We are definitely going back 🌞
