Very nice clean & real friendly place to stay. Nice quiet location with great views over the countryside. 10 mins walk to main town & beach. Hire a car and go explore the other 2 peninsulas, lots of lovely hidden beaches and the drive around Sithonia is amazing. Well recommended. Great Holiday with something for everyone.. Cheers Pandolise & Poppy 2 of the nicest people in Greece..

We visited Ampelia at the end of June for our annual 2 week holiday, I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel.

Having been told various things about some poor quality hotels in Greece I was a little apprehensive before booking as I was told not to expect too much in terms of quality. However the Ampelia had some great reviews on tripadvisor, was very well priced and seemed a little too good to be true, but we went ahead and booked anyhow.

When we arrived in Greece we jumped on the coach to take us to out apartments and my nerves were only made worse as an hour into our coach journey, we stopped at a variety of very run down, old fashioned and grotty looking hotels to drop people off.

However as the last stop of the journey we approached the Ampelia and our eyes lit up. It appeared clean and tidy and exactly what we wanted, in a nice quiet area but close enough to walk to the main busy town for food, drinks and atmosphere.
We were then met by Poppy who showed us to out large, spacious, clean and fresh room (on the top floor room 23, surreal as my birthday was on the 23rd and so were Enlgand playing in the world cup...the less we say the better), with a warm and friendly welcome. We were over the moon and had arrived for 2 weeks knowing we had picked a hidden gem of a hotel.

The pool area was quiet tranquil and perfect for both couples or young families knowing their children would be safe to run around freely. The bar area next to this had some amazing canopied areas that were very romantic where you could sit and watch the sun set. Simply heaven.

Ampelia for us should definitely be a 4* hotel, it is worth far more than many of the other hotels around and the personal service you receive is very special. Poppy and Pantelis as owners made our stay one of the best holidays we've ever had. They are welcoming, friendly and very funny (ask Pantelis the joke about England and a tea bag....he could go on all day). With Suzie behind the bar in the evening as well, the warmth and conversation flows even more, she is fantastic. The 3 of them together make this a great hotel to stay in.

We have never stayed anywhere like this hotel and class it as a hidden gem among many other average hotels. I could have sat and talked to them at the bar all day, as owners they simply add to the fun of your holiday and nothing was too much trouble. They really give this place a personal touch!!!

If you are unsure about booking don't be. I can assure you, I felt the same before but would go back in a heartbeat.

Thanks for to Suzie, Poppy and Pantelis for such a great time.

Lots of love and best wishes to you all,
The Bank Manager and The Sheep Loving Welsh Girl.

PS - If you only eat out once, visit Pallini's by far and so well priced you will not be disappointed.

We have just returned from Ampelia Studios and it was brilliant.

The hotel is quite small but is extremely welcoming and friendly.
The hotel owners Poppy and Pandelise made our holiday special. They are helpful, kind, thoughtful and will do anything to ensure your stay is perfect. Pandelise is also very entertaining - we spent most days at the pool bar as it was so enjoyable.

Hanioti is quite commercial and ahs a great night life – whether you want quiet and chilled or vibrant and entraining.
If you are looking for a more traditional Greek taverna – go to KrioPighi old square. This will cost approx 15Euros in a taxi and is worth it.

The trips through First Choice are ok – however I would recommend KR over the Market and Mountains tour.

The accommodation is lovely. The bathrooms are very nice with a sperarte shower cubicle. There are sufficient cooking facilities – however Poppy offers a lovely continental breakfast at the pool bar – just don’t ask Pandelise for an egg!!!!!

The coach transfer from the airport is approx 1hr 30mins – however you will have some lovely views and it really doesn’t seem that longs.

The restaurants in the main square offer similar food – however Pallini’s is the best meal and value for money.

The hotel is 15mins walk from the main square – this is not a difficult walk and is quite pleasant. It is easy to do even with a buggy or pram.

One bit of advice - on the first night - remember to be way back and use a little map that Poppy will give you!

I just want to say thank you to Poppy and Pandelise for making our holiday so enjoyable and special as I know you read this site.

Thank you again – Clare and Perry.

Oh and if you’re thinking of whether or not to book – BOOK NOW! You won’t regret it!

We have just returned from the Ampelia Studios and have had a really great holiday, we could not fault anything at all, apartment very clean and roomy, maid service superb always supplied us with clean towels and sheets, they came in every day to sensure that everything was in order. The owners Pantenese, Poppy and Susie were so very friendly and would do anything for you to ensure your stay was comfortable. The walk to the square was not to far with plenty of restaurants and bars and it was nice to be able to walk away from the hustle and bustle back to our apartment for the peace and quiet, it was like having your own pool somedays, and the views were picturesque. We had a wonderful time and would certainly not hesitate to recommend these apartments to others, we will certainly return again, and a big thank you to Pantenese & staff for making our holiday memorable and relaxing.
