The perfect holiday villa...

  • 5 of 5

Being a regular visitor to this quiet region of Crete I can honestly say I have finally found the perfect villa. From first enquiry to departure the owners could not be more friendly and helpful. The owners are the perfect hosts and their villa has everything you could need during your stay. They cooked us an amazing fish lunch, so kind and totally unexpected! Their welcome package included a full fridge of everything you would need for the first few days, bread, fruit and veg, beer wine etc. There are a two tavernas and a lovely quiet beach a short walk from the villa. If you take advantage of the use of the owners hire car you can explore a part of Crete which less frequently asked visited by other tourists. I can not recommend this villa more and will be staying again on future trips. Thank you Anna and George!

Definitely the place to stay if you go to E. Crete

  • 4 of 5

We spent a month at Villa Amvrosia in July We thought we might be bored towards the end but not a bit, we had a great time. This part of Crete is far less touristy and there are some lovely tavernas, villages and clean, shallow beaches, plus more special places like the Kapsas Gorge and Monastery - well worth a visit - with some monstrous drives into the mountains and East Coast, also search out Paradise Beach at the end of Carefree St, you won't be disappointed . Agios Nicolaos and Sitia, are about an hour's drive away.

The villa is really lovely, the pool/pool area is great, specially in the evenings for BBQ's and generally whiling away the summer evenings. Anna and George brought us lots of treats - more apricots than we could possibly eat, the best sea bass, beautifully cooked, seafood pasta and much more. The villa is extremely well appointed and kept meticulously clean inside and out. The rose garden was particularly beautiful while we were there in full bloom. We had a great time and everyone (up to seven of us at times were comfortably accomodated with all but one bedroom having a sea view). If you get the use of the 4x4 there are almost no limits to where you can venture. Definitely the place to stay if you are heading toward Eastern Crete.

magic rest

  • 5 of 5

Vacationing with the entire family 08/19/2014 - 08/29/2014. Wanted a quiet holiday in a beautiful location, in a nice house near the sea - and we found it at the villa Ambrose. Very nice house !!! with a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains! Convenient! With excellent design inside: Local have very good taste! The sea is a 5-minute walk away. met us from the airport with a smile, all the show and tell.Family Sfiraki very friendly people. Welcome basket was full fridge of food))) that was very useful for us after the flight. Anna served us delicious unrealistic !!! My mom still regrets that he did not ask the recipe! Less than 10 minutes from the villa a good tavern Ahlya, food at home tasty. But without a car there is not enough. To have fun, we must go at least 20 minutes in the neighboring villages. I would recommend this villa to all my friends! Thanks Sfaraki family for a great vacation. We'll miss you! Best wishes, Oksana

Our experience from Crete

  • 5 of 5

When I first saw the villa on the website I thought it looked lovely, it was even more amazing when we arrived there. It is based in Galini and sits looking out over the Libyan sea. It is a five minute walk down to a little beach set in a cove. The villa is very spacious, clean and very cool with marble floors throughout, and very tastefully decorated. It has all the facilities you would find in your own home and more. A cleaner came by to change bedclothes and clean the villa with no intrusion on our time. There is a great outdoor pool and seating area with complete privacy. There are plenty of balconies in the villa to sit out in the warm evening air and enjoy a glass of Greek wine, before going out to dinner in one of the many local restaurants.

The owners George and Ana are the epitome of the warmest Greek hospitality you could ever receive and I cannot thank them enough for this, it makes for a great holiday. Many thanks too for the their wonderful BBQ lamb and potatoes, along with the fresh BBQ fish that George caught on an early morning fishing trip.

This was our first visit to Crete. We visited other parts of the island on day trips and really enjoyed the friendliness of the Greek people. I would highly recommend Galini as a destination and in particular this villa, it is one of the most beautiful places I have had the pleasure of staying in.

There are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity and surrounding villages and the town of Irepetra is a short drive away, with a lovely promenade along the seafront, with cafes bars and restaurants. The town has lots of twisting little streets with interesting shops to explore. I would love to return to Crete again in the near future and would definitely return to this villa as my base. Thanks again George and Ana for a wonderful holiday and all your kindness, from Adrienne, Emma and Marie.

Vacation for the whole family - Crete

  • 5 of 5

Sometime we need a little bit more than just hotel.

We’d like to avoid a reception queue, coldness and indifference of the waiters.

We’d to avoid booking beach bed near swimming pool and we don’t want to get additional

anxiety, and, of course we don’t like to run somewhere during our vacation.

It was our the first experience to rent a villa for 2 months. Of course, we stressed as to travel big family with small

children and to unknown place… But we met a nice combination of top hotel facilities and family comfort. It is important, isn’t it?

You know, Greek’s island cuisine will never been haute cuisine. It is just very healthy and fantastic tasted.

Ask owner, who is real gentleman, to tinker with his oven in the yard and you will get delicious dishes from the simple foods.

In any case and any time you will be backed right advices and necessary assistance.

But if you hire a maid you’ll be freed from daily kitchen issues. Enjoy breakfast with a terrace’s sea view, squinting at the sun and feel free from the

business. Good luck!

A very nice holiday in a very nice property

  • 5 of 5

South East Crete is a perfect place for having relaxing holidays and that perfection could be even more "perfect" if you stay at Villa Amvrosia (property n° 479788). That because the property itself is very well kept with a very nice garden, a lovely swimming pool and the house is spacious and elegantly furnished; already all that would be enough to justify a positive comment and it is becoming even, extremely, positive if we considered the very good hospitality given by the villa's owner which has gone very much above what has been contractually agreed. Therefore, I do strongly recommend those willing to visit that part of Crete to catch this fantastic opportunity.

Map

Car: recommended

South-eastern Crete is renowned throughout Europe for its natural beauty and warm, sunny climate ,a pole of attraction for lots of tourists that want family vacation, while many have decided to relocate permanently. The Villa is a stone's throw (5 minutes walk) from Galini beach, which has crystal clear waters and a beautiful seabed;

Within a radius of 15 kilometres, one can find water sports (water-ski, wakeboard, windsurf, banana and ring rides), a diving centre , go-cart, playgrounds, Eco and Agro tourism facilities, and a vast network of hiking paths connecting the beach with neighbouring villages.The local tavernas and restaurants have maintained their character, due to the careful touristic development around Ιerapetra, and offer traditional and quality dishes in really reasonable prices. Last but not least, there are a lot of bars and nightclubs in the town of Makry Giallos and Ιerapetra, that offer a great variety of choices for all tastes and ages.
