Me, the missis and our 15 year old sleeping machine stayed here for two nights last weekend. We arrived on the Blue Star and we jumped on the small bus which the accommodation arranged for 25 Euro (good value for 3 people as taxi was considerably more). Arrived at the villas about 45 minutes later with a bunch of Kiwis... More

Ambelia far exceeded our expectations. The facilities and rooms are modern with fresh decor, the rooms are spacious and each comes with a private patio which is great for sitting out of an evening. Plenty of variety at breakfast and the food is good. The couple who run this place (Sami & his wife) are what really sets it apart... More

We stayed at Ambelia Traditional Villas from 2nd to 9th June incluisve, as a couple going to a friends wedding. The flight out was delayed and for that and various other reasons we arrived at Ambelia close to midnight. The villas manager (Sammi) met us at the local car park which is a close as you can get by transport... More

Quiet, relaxing villas about 10 minutes walking distance from Oia. For the people saying it took 20-30 minutes to walk to Oia--they are either directionally challenged, or got there by crawling. You get to experience all the beauty of Oia without the tourist noise and high prices. If you want to be smack dab in the middle of tourist-packed Oia... More

Stayed here for 3d2n. This is very quiet and relaxing place. Room doesn't have wifi coverage and keeping u quiet and away from work. Boss and staff are friendly, nice and helpful. Beautiful pool with sea view. It takes about 15 mins to talk to the oia town and the square. I wld recommend to those budget travellers!

Lovely cave style accommodation just on the edge of Oia. Fabulous manager who even did our washing for us. Big cave, full kitchen, sitting room and bedroom. Very serviceable bathroom. Fresh omelet made for breakfast. No WIFI in room but accessible in the pool/breakfast area. A bit of a walk into Oia but no problem. We thought we were getting... More

The hotel is located in a peaceful village Finikia in a 15-minutes walk from Oia center. The best combination of tranquillity and neighborhood to the main sights. The villas are decorated in a traditional Greek way (caves) with modern and stylish details. The room is regularly cleaned. We were very lucky to meet Sambelos and Oksana, because it is our... More

The owner Sammy was extremely helpful and could not do enough for us. The villas, which are very clean and well equipped, are ideally situated away from the hussle of Oia but about a 15 minute walk away making it easy to walk in and watch the sunset over dinner. Every day breakfast was provided with home made goods. Very... More

I have just returned to the UK after 10 days in Ambelia. We had wonderful weather, relaxing days by the pool and excellent service and support from Sami. The cave house we stayed in was perfect with clean sheets every other day and clean towels every day. The breakfast was lovely with plenty of homemade cakes and jams , greek... More
