I have spent the most beautiful and exciting two weeks with my doughter on Creta, in Ambelos. It was even much better, as I could have imagined - the weather, the apartment, the magical surrounding, friendly and helping Andrea and his wife, and the island itself - wild but at the same time so welcoming. I have rented a car... More

Peaceful location with a short walk to the nearest 2 beaches and a 30min stroll into town. Apartments are clean and extremely comfortable. The property and its grounds are kept in a beautiful condition by Andreas and even just walking down to the pool is enjoyable. Lots of space to park the car (car recommended) The pool area is wonderful!... More

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!

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
