Villa Dio Petres is an exceptional place to stay and enjoy your holidays. Located in a breathtaking spot, the hotel is perfect for a refreshing and calm stay. The owners, Hans and Jacob, are very kind and make you feel at home. Breakfast is superb prepared with traditional products, the view is amazing and the rooms are very comfortable and really clean.

One day at Villa Dio Petres

A place to visit to stock up on happy memories
One day at Villa Dio Petres only, but what a memorable stay! I happened to be the only guest and felt very lucky and privileged. The location is unbeatable for splendid views, Kroustas is a little gem of a village, and the lovely rooms and terraces alone are enough to win the highest praise, but it is the personality of the hosts that makes the place truly special. Their ambition of achieving Eudaimonia - something more than happiness, a state where fulfillment, human flourishing and well-being blend - and sharing the experience with their guests is inspiring. Regrettably, I missed meeting Hans but Jacques extended a warm and friendly welcome on behalf of both of them. I appreciated the conversations we had and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent breakfast) Thank you so much, Jacques! I do wholeheartedly recommend Villa Dio Petres and hope to come over again. On top of everything else, the area around Kroustas and Kritsa offers excellent opportunities for walking and the landscapes up in the mountains and around the plateau are breathtaking.

Lieber Hans, lieber Jacques,

Nachdem wir seit Mittwoch wieder zu Hause sind und uns schon wieder eingelebt haben, möchten wir uns nochmal für die schöne Zeit bei Ihnen bedanken. Von Kroustas sind wir über eine sehr schöne Tour durch die Berge an die Küste und weiter nach Agia Galini gefahren. Das Dorf hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Auch das Familienhote fanden wir trotz vorheriger Skepsis nett. Anschließend ging es weiter nach Plakias. Der Ort ist für unseren Geschmack hässlich und viel zu touristisch. Für Ausflüge war er als Standort aber nicht so schlecht. Wr hatten auch ein Apartment außerhalb de Dorfes. Die letzten 3 Tage in Chania verbrachten wir in einem akzeptablen Apartment in der Altstadt und haben von dort aus den Westen der Insel erkundet und abends die Stadt besucht. Wir fanden Kreta wunderschön: sehr nette Menschen, beeindruckende Lanschaften, gutes Essen und vor allem die entspannte Stimmung. Vielleicht schaffen noch einmal den Weg zu Ihnen. Wir haben uns in der Villa Dio Petres sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir wünschen Ihnen alles Gute und viel Erfolg mit Ihrem schönen Haus. Liebe Grüße

A lovely peaceful spot in a relatively unspoilt part of Crete.  

Lovely views of the mountains and bay from both balconies and woke up to birdsong- magical! We had the panorama room, which was on the ground floor and suitable for the disabled, but very spacious and light. The hosts were relaxed and friendly and gave us a wide choice of products for a lovely breakfast. You need a car as the building is a little way from the nearest village, Kroustas and a little bit further from the tourist village, Kritsa. Convenient spot for visiting the Lassithi plateau and Lato ruins. A good time to go if you want to see wildflowers.One of the balconies was accessible from the rest of the building, used for hiking and philosophy tours on some days, so we would have appreciated a partition of some sort. It was also rather a steep drive down to the property, so we opted to park at the top and walk down, which was slightly inconvenient, but worth it for the peace and quiet of the location!

Our sincere thanks

This is a really stunning new villa that Jacques and Hans have designed and built themselves, in a very peaceful location, enjoying spectacular views over the mountains and the sea. The villa its-self was spotless and the beds particularly comfortable. Breakfast was most enjoyable with choice of cereal, Greek yogurt, bread and jams, cheese and meats, egg and tea or coffee. (the freshly squeezed orange was a particular joy!).The Hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful doing all they could to ensure our stay was peaceful and enjoyable. They were pleased to tell us about all the interesting and historic places to visit. (but were not at all intrusive). We particularly enjoyed the local sandy beach with safe swimming and a choice of 2 tavernas.
We would thoroughly recommend a holiday at Villa Dio Petres. It is rare indeed to find such peace and tranquility or indeed hosts that show such humanity and friendship. Our sincere thanks

Traumplatz im Gebirge

Dieses Haus sprengt den Rahmen eines Hotels, da es mehr eine Luxusvilla mit persönlicher Betreuung ist. Das Besitzerpaar, zwei äußerst freundliche und hilfsbereite Holländer, kümmert sich um selbst um kleinste Kleinigkeiten, setzt sich aber auch intensivste für Gäste ein. Wir erlebten das bei einem Paar, welches ebenfalls hier wohnte und bei dem der Mann schwer krank wurde.Die Hoteliers sorgten rundum für diese Gäste. Das Haus liegt mit grandiosem Ausblick Richtung Agios Nikolaus an einem Steilhang, neben einer best-ausgebauten Straße. Alles ist sehr neu, ganz modern und geschmackvoll auf höchstem Standard.

Gelukzaligheid

Voor een korte vakantie zochten we op Kreta nabij Agios Nikolaos een bijzondere plek, weg van het toeristisch geweld aan de kust. Bij Villa Dio Petres op de route van het dorpje Kritsa naar Kroustas vonden we meer dan we ons konden wensen. Een gevoel van ‘tijdloze gelukzaligheid’!
Hemels uitzicht op aarde
Hoewel de indrukwekkende foto’s van de websites een tipje van de sluier doen oplichten van het panorama vanaf de splinternieuwe Villa Dio Petres, is het in het echt nog véél indrukwekkender. Het overweldigend imponerende wijde blikveld geeft je een gevoel van oneindigheid met zo’n 270 graden horizontaal en 200 graden verticaal. Verbijstering. Je wordt er stil van.
De fraaie Villa
Architect Jacques Poot en TV-producent/Beeldadviseur Hans Rutten hebben op deze locatie een hoogstandje gerealiseerd waarbij de nieuwe Villa prachtig in het landschap wordt opgenomen. De Villa wordt hoofd​zakelijk gebruikt als een klein conferentieoord voor filosofie-cursussen met bekende professoren(academieopkreta.nl), maar de kamers (4) worden tussendoor verhuurd als bed & breakfast. Elke kamer kent heerlijke bedden, heeft een terras met prachtig uitzicht en is geclassificeerd op 3 (van de 4) sleutels (de sterren van Griekenland). De kwaliteit/prijsverhouding is uitstekend. In de villa is geïnvesteerd in duurzame technische hoogstandjes die de kamers op aangename temperatuur houden. Dat zie je niet, maar dat merk je wel.
Het Grote Genieten
De beide initiatiefnemers en gastheren Jacques en Hans hebben hun sporen verdiend in de wereld van gastronomie, media en toerisme. Ze weten als geen ander de gasten het gevoel te geven zich hier in alle rust ‘in de wolken’ te voelen. Hans en Jacques maken het vertrouwd en persoonlijk en zullen er alles aan doen om het de gasten naar de zin te maken. Je krijgt niet gewoon een bed voor een nacht, maar een bijzondere, persoonlijke ervaring. Geen Hilton of Marriott, maar wel een meer dan hoog cijfer voor kwaliteit en gastvriendelijkheid. Evdaimonia oftewel Gelukzaligheid!
