I recently posted a request for information on this delightful village and appartments and received two great and informative replies - thanks.
My family and myself have now returned from the best holiday we have ever experienced.
Koutouloufari is a beautiful village set in the hillside overlooking Hersonissos.
The restaurants are the best we have ever eaten at. We never had a meal that we were not happy with.
Pegasus restaurant is great for food and good value. The plate smashing and dancing on a Friday night are brilliant - but book a table!
Stekis restaurant is second to none for steaks and traditional Greek cuisine. (and the Stekis brothers are both funny, entertaining and a delight to look at!!!)
Emmanuels is superb. The nightly specials are the best food I have ever tasted and the service is spot on.
If you require a very upmarket meal with the type of service you would expect from a high class London restaurant then Galinis is for you. The high level of food and service is reflected in the price though - but still well worth a visit.
The Dionisis bar is a great meeting place for pre-meal or post-meal drinks. The resident bar man Silvio is both informative and funny.(if anyone is due to visit this resort and actually meets up with Silvio - wish him well with the birth of his first child - due imminently.)
Petra Village appts - what can I say - superb!!!!
We have never in all of our travels met such dedicated, genuine and friendly staff. Vas the night time barman is great fun and a frindly guy.
His sister, Vasu who mans reception is efficient, friendly and informative.
Babis - (Captain Haddock) is the brilliant caretaker who appears to dedicate his life to the upkeep of the appts.
Dimitris the cook who spends more time playing with the kids and entertaining the adults - he made our holiday!
Rita - the daytime bar keeper. A brilliantly funny woman with a wicked sense of humour (watch out for her water gun!)
The appts are exceptionally clean with good facilities. We shall return as soon as we can.
Thanks to all at Petra for a holiday we shall always remember and memories we shall always treasure.
Lastly - to all the friendly people of Crete. We were amazed at how much you were prepared to do in order to help us - nothing was too much trouble.
