10 out of 10!
Really enjoyed our week at Vergis Epavlis. Stella and Stelios were fantastic the breakfast was amazing - traditional Greek food all home made with local produce with something different each day. The room (angles) was great - very clean, quiet, good WiFi and comfy bed. Accommodation was around 30min from airport in a nice quiet traditional village which had a few shops and excellent kebab takeout! Thanks again for great stay.

8/10 Very good

Private villa in part of a bigger property
The property has 4 villas and is run by Stella who is a fantastically friendly , welcoming and generous host . Our villa , Flowers , was generously sized with a large terrace . Although comfortable it was not as luxurious as the reviews lead us to believe . The toiletries were sparse and very ordinary and the bottom sheet of the bed was too small to fit the bed .A car is essential as the location is very remote The nearest taverna is a good 15 minute walk away uphill and if you want a nice beach you’ll need to get on the main coast road which is a 20 min drive away .Stella and her helpers will cook you a lovely breakfast each day and offer you more cakes and desserts than you can probably manage to eat !

Vergis Epavlis Heaven
If you visit Crete, you must stay at Vergis Epavlis. Away from the busy city, this piece of heaven is set in the gorgeous village of Agios Myronas. Mr Stelious and his wonderful wife Stella own and operate this boutique gem. Nothing was too much trouble, they anticipated and exceeded all levels of generosity, hospitality and kindness. We were treated like family and brought into their beautiful world. Stella is a wonderful cook and made new dishes each day for her guests, showcasing the best of local, organic, delicious Cretan dishes. Recommendations on what to see and do, were made freely as well as history lessons of this beautiful island and country. Restaurant reservations were made for us and we were driven to and from said Tavernas. We stayed in the Rafkos, Presidential room. Stunning. All the amenities you need and more, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom. Great pool. Mr Stellious connected the TV to additional channels so we could watch the World Cup live. Very kind. A bottle of wine on arrival, daily edible treats, pool that overlooks an incredible vista. Amazing. Staff were lovely and professional. Vergis Epavlis cannot be spoken of highly enough. Stunning in every way. Stelios, Stella are to be congratulated for what they have created and maintained. A place you will never forget and will revisit often. Thank you for a wonderful stay it was the highlight of our holiday in Greece. Stunning.

A very civilised stay in the centre of Crete
A wonderful, small "hotel" with just 4 very comfortable and immaculately clean suites, which are a (separate) part of the owner's house - they all have their own front door. Stelios and Stella are incredibly helpful owners - spending time advising on where to go in Crete; guiding you to the local taverna (excellent, and amazing value for money) on your first evening - nothing is too much trouble. The views are amazing - from all the rooms and from the dining room where you have breakfast every morning - which is great and freshly prepared. And you're also encouraged to take any extra that hasn't been eaten with you to have for lunch later that day. In terms of location, it's very central in Crete and it's very quiet. So - if you want to be in the middle of the action, don't stay here. But if you want a beautifully kept, quiet and very civilised place to stay, it's fantastic!

Can’t Wait To Return to this Slice of Heaven!
If I could give this beautiful, family-run hotel a 10-star rating I would! My family and I were warmly and enthusiastically welcomed by our hosts, Mr. and Mrs Vergis, even though we arrived quite late into the evening. We were treated like family throughout our stay, beginning with a delicious, home-cooked breakfast the following morning. After breakfast, Mrs. Vergis gathered us around and gave us an overview of the island, along with her personal recommendations on what to see and where to dine. We took a short drive to the lively town of Knossos and visited the Minoan ruins. Our perfect day ended with a perfect meal at our local village’s taverna. Our spacious room was immaculate, modern and very well appointed, with many extras like thick bath towels, robes and a large jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed the privacy of our beautiful patio as well as the stunning surrounding gardens and large, well-maintained pool. We felt safe at all times and were very well cared for by our hosts. Needless to say, we can’t wait to return to this “slice of heaven!” Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Vergis for a most memorable and heartwarming stay.

Feel at home
We stayed for 5 nights with our 2 daughters. Amazing location with panoramic views of Crete all the way to the sea (tip - get directions, don't just rely on Google maps). Stella and Stellios couldn't have been better hosts and made us feel at home the whole time. Breakfast was amazing. I hope we get the chance to come back some day!

Homely resort in the hills
A beautiful location with outstanding service. Like a home away from home. Stella and Stelios are the perfect hosts going out of the their way to make your holiday special. Everyday not only did they provide us with lunch and a lifts to and from the local village but they also returned with local produce or delicacies whenever they returned from their daily tasks. I took my mother for a surprise birthday treat and we were well and truly spoilt. Nothing but praise from us.

A bit like a private villa.
Had a lovely week with Stella and Stelios at Vergis Epavlis. As the hotel is so small, we had the pool to ourselves all week - it felt like we had rented a private villa - for the fraktion of the price. Stella and the girls serve breakfast in the morning and Stella makes sure you get the chance to try some Greek specialities if you like. We stayed in the "eros" room, which is more like an apartment, including fridge/ freezer and stove. (not that we used it for more than storing our extra beers and wine). Having a car is a must, as it is situated up the mountain side with only the village restaurant within walking distance (500m uphill, so no flip-flops). If you are looking for a complete rest away from busy hotels, kids roaming around etc. this is the place to go. If you are not driving or must walk to the beach and night clubs etc - this is not the place.

Absolutely amazing.
Stunning room, every bit as good as the photographs. Personalised service, Stellios and Stella were perfect hosts and treated you like family, the staff too were fantastic. Amazing food at breakfast with a huge selection of fresh ingredients including a cooked dish prepared every morning and usually an extra treat to be taken away for later in the day. Good location for all corners of Crete.

Highly recommend - place to go and relax
We had the best stay at Vergis Epavlis. You could not meet better owners/hosts than Stelios and Stella - nothing was too much trouble. We are two adults and two children - their recomeendations were spot on, we ate at fabulous restaurants and most importantly relaxed. If you want down time this is the most scenic, quiet and peaceful place to go. Highly recommend. Car is essential if you want to explore/honour for dinner.
