This is without a doubt the best Hotel/ Villa I have ever stayed at. Nestled in a small mountain village it has a perfect location and stunning views out to the sea and Iraklion airport. Went there as a honeymoon destination and can say without lying it is simply mind blowing. The food, views and rooms alone are outstanding however... More

This is a huge house in the hills near iraklio. The owners are very kind and sweet. We loved how hospitable they were. This is a great location for taking it easy and relaxing. It's about 25+ minutes from Iraklio. Our room was lovely. My only complaint would be the AC. It wasn't turned on before we arrived so it... More

All the other reviews will tell you the same, so I'll cut it to the chase: this is a great place, different from what one can expect, with two fantastic hosts, Stela and Stelios. I can't call the place a "hotel". It is more like a big guest house, with big rooms, where the owners (Stela and Stelios) will treat... More

Just 30 minutes from Heraklion airport but a peaceful and beautiful haven in vine and olive covered hills. From the moment we arrived we were made most welcome. We stayed in the huge presidential suite with its opulent and luxurious decorations. We ate at the hotel on the first night where Stella cooked us a delicious and amazing 6 courses!... More

We're just back from a great holiday at Vergis Epavlis and felt compelled to make my first review (10 years on TripAdvisor now) after an amazing week at this oasis in the hills close to Heraklion. Despite the media coverage facing Greece, Crete and Vergis Epavlis offered a perfect holiday and everything was fine and easy for us. Stella and... More

We recently returned from a week visit to Crete. I had heard that people were concerned about visiting Greece at this time, but our stay was a real treat. I would go back without any hesitation. Stella and Stellios made us feel at home. I miss our breakfasts and our time talking to Stella in the morning. It is worth... More

This review is long overdue! We spent the better part of a week in Crete over the summer, just around the times of the economic crisis. Absolutely enjoyed our time at the Vergis Epavlis - we actually extended our stay at the last minute and there was no problem. Stella and Stelios are amazing hosts, and treated us much more... More
