The idea of Petalides residencies is to offer an accommodation experience based on privacy and relaxation in a design oriented atmosphere.
Our story begun in winter 2015 when we decided to create Petalides, a singular destination for like minded free spirits.
Today’s travelers expect more than the standard comfort and convenience of traditional tourist accommodation and they are looking more for a true and authentic experience. People are not searching for luxury in a traditional definition. The word luxury is used extensively and has now become cheap with moral content.
People are seeking from their destinations the truth and those conditions that will relax them from their daily routine by making them simply feel themselves. Our philosophy is to bring those people living close in a relaxed, authentic atmosphere. The PETALIDES are designed with orientation in the privacy of visitors and the interaction of man with the Cycladic environment.
Patellides is a taxonomic family of sea snails or true limpets, marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Patellogastropoda.
Patellidae is the only family in the superfamily Patelloidea. This family has no subfamilies.
(The superfamily Patelloidea should not be confused with the similar-sounding genus of true limpets Patelloida which is in the family Lottiidae within the superfamily Lottioidea, also part of the Patellogastropoda.)
