Lovely apartment set in olive grove with fruit trees, bougainvillea and chickens. Very idyllic. Our balcony had a view of the sea and hills. Amazing swimming pool which was great for the kids. We had a thoroughly relaxing stay although we hired a car so that we could visit some of the sites and local towns. Very good value for... More

We have just spent a wonderful week at Ambelos apartments. It is a collection of delightfully authentic Cretan buildings well furnished and very clean but they are simple self contained apartments. Andrea, is always around to help in whatever way he can. The only sounds to disturb us were the hens and tinkle of the goats' bells (which we never... More

Great place! I stayed with friends, students, everybody loves it. Quiet, clean, Andreas, the keeper of the place is a wonderful person and maintains it really well. Walk to the beach is 12 min. Drive to Heraklion is 20 min. Views are fabulous, best place to see sunrise. Prices are affordable.

My family - four persons - visited Ambelos in July 2011 for a week. The rooms were great, spacious and clean. The swimming pool was a real joy for the children who spent a lot of time there. The location of the place is very convenient, near Heraklion (20 Km) and on the road to Rethimnon.

This must be one of the most picturesque places I have ever been to. Agia Pelagia is by far my choice foe future vacations in Crete; and Ambelos Apartments is where I will stay without any minute of hesitation. The location is perfect - on a hill, a way from loud motorway. The best way to get to the villa... More

Ambelos apartments is a wonderful place for a peaceful and homely holiday in Crete. We spent there a week in the end of May. The Ambelos complex is located in a well-maintained olive grove which gives it much cosiness and tranquility. You will not find any pubs around (only a pool bar  ); for any supermarket you will have... More

When me and my boyfriend decided to spend our summer vacation in Agia Pelagia, in Crete, we started searching on the web. We wanted something beautiful, clean, with friendly enviroment. Most of all we wanted a quiet place. Ambelos was a great choice, apart from the fact that it was cheap. The apartments are very spacy, with all the necessary... More
