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
equipement to prepare breakfast, the double beds are "really"double and the balcony viewed the pool among the vineyards. We enjoyed very much, waking up in the morning and spending our time at the balcony, where you could hear only the singing of the "cicadas".....the birds....etc
The stuff of the hotel ,was friendly enough to make you feel like home.
I don't think that words can describe in a few rows the place but most of all the feeling....
I will certainly visit Ambelos again....

We've just came back from a week's stay at Ambelos Apartments in Agia Pelagia, Crete. It is a complex of apartments of various sizes that is situated on a hill in an olive grove combined with a vineyard. If you are looking for a serene place with a true Cretan view and a traditional apartment then you are at the right place. Ambelos in Agia Pelagia ( not to confuse with an additional apartment complex in Heraclion) is appr. 30 km from the Heraclion airport. In the vicinity ( appr. 300 meters) there is a beautiful secluded beach but if you feel jut like a dip in the pool - there is one on the premises. And there are other beautiful beaches in the area as well. The apartment is nice, fully furnished , air-conditioned and the kitchen has all the necessary utencils. A supermarket is close by. If you feel like having a Traditional Greek Dinner - try the George Restaurant that is very close by. It was our second time in Ambelos and we weren't disappointed...You can get there with a bus (5 times a day), however, for an enjoyable stay in this area it is nice to have a car. and I promise you to be away from all the tourist crowd! Highly recomended! You can check them out by yourself, they have a web site. Rachel Molcho
