“Perfect place to relax after our wedding!”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Me and my wife stayed in Villa Amvrosia for 9 days whilst we were in Crete for our wedding!
From the first moment we walked in we fell in love with the place. A fantastic fruit bowl was left out for us, water beer and wine left in the fridge as well as two bottles of Raki.
The villa itself is very homely and for me the plunge pool in the basement was the best thing! It would have been nice to have an option of heating the water but it was still lovely to chill out in after a day out.
The pool area is huge with plenty of seating, we threw a bit of a post wedding party for some of our guests and they all loved the place.
The BBQ area is also amazing, we did cook a bit on it but you could quite easily throw a huge party and cater for everybody.
Finally the views are phenomenal, they added to the magic of the whole holiday.

We'd recommend Villa Amvrosia to anybody who wants to spend their holiday in a beautiful chilled out venue in beautiful Crete!

“Stunning villa in beautiful setting”
Reviewed May 29, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The villa location is stunning and the directions given could not be more helpful. You must follow the directions though, down to "go left at the big tree" as SAT NAV won't be of use. The villa is stunning and secluded, the outside area is second to none and very relaxing. Inside the bedrooms are perfectly nice, but do not match the superior outdoors setting. The indoor pool was too cold for us to use, but in summer I see how it could be relaxing.

The welcome pack was well-received and the village the villa is near is gorgeous, a true Cretan experience. You would have to have a rental car to get here, but if you don't mind driving the location is great.

I would definitely return to this property.

“Amazing holiday”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a fantastic villa, so well equipped in every way. Not one pool, but two (a small indoor one as well as the wonderful 'L' shaped pool outside. Not one building but two - a Cretan Barbeque building with a second well equipped kitchen and dining area. All this and an aviary too with finches and a peacock! We were grateful for the air conditioning duringa very hot September break and the variety of outdoor seating (including hammocks) so you could always find a shady spot to sit. 6 nights here was just not enough..... The village, about a mile away, whilst small has a butcher/cheese shop, bakery, general stores and several tavernas.

“Fantastic”

This is a stunning villa with fantastic views of the mountains and the birds of prey that inhabit them. Situated on the outskirts of the village its location is quiet and very rural with the tinkling of goat bells, sheep bleating and mules he hawing. The rooms all have AC and are decorated to a very high standard.The pool was the best of any villa I have rented. The local village has a great butcher, baker and the main taverna by the river is wonderful as are the portions. (the doggy bag was great for the next days lunch) . Nearby Kalives has more choice for shopping (we managed to get a wheelchair tyre replaced. Wholly recommend The Green Pepper Taverna to the west of the town. We so enjoyed being at the villa that we didn't go on as many days out as we had planned but will definitely return.
