Vergis Epavlis is a truly wonderful escape in the hills above Iraklion. Nestled in the village of Agios Myronas Stella and Stelios have created a fabulous home from home. We stayed in the House of Eros, a beautiful suite with every small detail catered for. We relaxed by the pool for the first couple of days, just drinking in the widespread views of the Cretan countryside down over Iraklion and the sea, and listening to the sound of birdsong.
Stella creates the most gorgeous breakfasts, and has a wealth of knowledge on where to visit on the island. From the time we arrived until the moment that we left, we felt like part of the Vergis family, we ate, drank and laughed together.
Verges Epavlis is perfectly situated for wherever you want to visit. It's a stones throw away from Knossos, and Iraklion city. We also visited Phaestos, Agia Galini and Rethymnon one afternoon. The next day we decide to go east, and we found a gorgeous little village called Sissi, where we had freshly cooked fish and a little more of the local Cretan wine at lunchtime, we went on to Elounda in the afternoon and watched the sun set over the Greek fishing boats, truly amazing.
Other evenings we sampled the traditional and delicious food at the taverna in the village, we had outstanding meals there, which were also superb value for money.
Stella and Stelios are very special people indeed, they embrace you into their home, and
enjoy you being there as much as you enjoy being there. Their dalmation Sara welcomes you with a huge smile at very given opportunity.
One evening I had a fabulous massage by Marina, she drove from Iraklion and gave me one of the best massages ever - the icing on the cake!
Thankyou Stella and Stelios for a truly amazing time, we will be back soon xxx
