My wife and I took a room in this lovely hotel for 3 days just before the season starts in Crete. The place itself is nothing less than beautiful. few cottage houses spread between a small vineyard. The pool was really relaxing and the view makes you feel as you're at the top of a mountain looking down towards the... More

Andreas is amazing. He keeps the grounds all by himself and they are immaculate! The sunrises are beautiful and Ambelos is there perfect view point. Agia Pelagia is the perfect place to stay if you want to escape the ultra touristy places and still have beautiful beaches, excellent food and the BEST people in all of Greece. HIGHLY recommend!

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.
