Stayed in Flowers suite, excellent amenities, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was a delight with Stella our host freshly preparing dishes to try in addition to the buffet, she even packed food for us to eat later - fabulous! Good tavernas in surrounding villages. Very relaxing and enjoyable holiday with no sign of refugees anywhere on the island - we will be back!

If you visit Heraklion, Crete, and you should, you must stay at Vergis Epavlis. Away from the busy City atmosphere, 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 is too much trouble, they anticipate and exceed all levels of generosity, hospitality and kindness. You are treated like family and brought into their beautiful world. Stella cooks new dishes each day for her guests, showcasing the best of local, organic, DELICIOUS Cretan dishes. Its utterly divine. No effort is too great for them. Recommendations on what to see or do, or not are made freely as well as history lessons of this beautiful island and country. Restaurant reservations are made for you and they drove us to and from said Tavernas. Incredible. We stayed in the Rafkos, Presidential room. Wonderful. All the amenities you would need and more. 2 bedroom, lounge, kitchen, 2 bathroom. Mr Stelios connected the TV to additional channels to ensure we could watch the World Cup live. Very appreciated. A welcome bottle of wine on arrival, daily edible treats, stunning pool that overlooks an incredible vista. The staff were so lovely and professional. Vergis Epavlis cannot be spoken of highly enough. Stunning in everyway. Stelios, Stella are to be congratulated for what they have created and maintained. A place you will never forget and revisit often. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We are just finishing a 9 day visit to Vergis Epavlis "the Vergis Mansion" here in Agios Mironas, central Crete. The 4 suited boutique hotel just South of Heraklion is a wonderful experience of Cretan hospitality due to Stella and Stellios Vergis who own and manage this jewel with a huge sense of graciousness and generosity. We were lucky to land in the Rafkos Balcony Suite which meant that our teenage son had his own space on a pull out sofa - we had ample additional space. The pristine pool- large enough for lengths overlooking the olive grove laden valley with vistas all the way to Heraklion was most inviting. Breakfast from the breakfast room offers wonderful views even before the day starts. This venue affords opportunity to explore Crete from all sides of the compass in easy day trips. We have had a wonderful time. Had we stayed longer Stella would have made sure we left quite a few kilograms heavier! nothing was too much trouble- and we can highly recommend her Moussaka!

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.

This place is amazing! Stella and Stelios are what you might call the perfect hosts. If you read all of the other reviews you will find that these people only want you to enjoy your time with them. The knowledge they have about the island, the places to visit etc is shared with their obvious passion for helping you enjoy what the Island has to offer, Stella generally takes time on your first morning to explain what the Island has to offer, her knowledge is second to none and she makes her suggestions based on what you want from your holiday. The hotel suites are very comfortable and have all you need to feel at home. The village is remote and a short drive from Heraklion but it is in the perfect position for exploring what this lovely Island has to offer. Whether you want to enjoy the remoteness of the Hotel or to use it as a base for daily jaunts to the various resorts we guarantee you will have a great time. Many people assume that the Island is blighted with unwanted refugees on their way to mainland Europe, this is not the case, having visited a variety of resorts We can tell you we did not see one sign of any 'crisis'. The villagers in Agios Myronas were very friendly and took the time to speak and make us feel part of their village. The village has a small selection of shops including a couple of small supermarkets, a bakers , a couple of Tavernas and bars. The village is very quiet and the scenery from anywhere within is spectacular. Take some time to have a good walk around the area, it is safe, scenic and has a great climate. Stelios helped us numerous occasions and for that we truly thank him, his generosity knows no bounds and he went above and beyond his role to make sure we had everything we wanted. If we ever visit the Island again we will be sure to stop here.

We stayed here just for one night last year and wanted to come back and stay again, so we did! This year we stayed four nights in September so that we could visit some of the sites that we missed out on last time we visited. Stelios and Stella treat you like family and Stella's home cooked breakfasts are delicious and cooked with care and love. The Greek Yoghurt is sensational but the cooked surprises that she makes each day are wonderful too. The gleaming pool is a welcome relief to return home to after a hot day out. The pool is a bit cool to get into but once you're in it's great. The location is excellent - it is only 25 minutes from Heraklion by car and an easy drive should you wish to visit. If you do want to visit Heraklion to see what is offers, parking is cheap and very easy at the Port in Heraklion (and only a 5 minute walk from the main action). Heraklion is not a pretty city but it does have some nice restaurants (try Peskesi), cafes (Phyllosophies on Lion's Square for Bougatsa) and the Archeological Museum is world class if you are interested in the history of Greece. If you are not interested in history or going to the city, there are plenty of little villages or day trips to beaches that you can do from the property. We are Greek history enthusiasts so we did day trips to Gortyn, Knossos and Phaistos, which were all easy day trips. We also went to Ayios Nicolas for a day. It is very easy to see lots of things from the location. It is also very tranquil to return to the gorgeous view and peacefulness at the end of the day. We were very saddened to hear that bookings for Greece are down because people outside of Europe are afraid of the refugee crisis. People, you will not see any impact on this on your travels. We have travelled to five Greek Islands over the last two years and have seen no impact of the situation at all. If we would have seen it, we would have expected to see it in Samos which is considerably closer to Turkey (which we visited this year). There is no evidence of any issue. Please do not let this stop you visiting Greece. I feel much safer in Greece than I do in Paris or London. Thank you Stelios and Stella for a great stay again - and thanks Stella for our sandwiches that you sent us off with when we left.

Stelios and Stella Vergis take hospitality to a new level in this beautiful and spacious Suites Hotel 1300 feet up in the mountains. The views are spectacular and there is a sense of tranquility throughout. A fantastic swimming pool overlooks their olive grove from which they produce their own home grown oil. Breakfasts are a real treat with spectacular home prepared local dishes. Stella treats her guests as family and nothing is too difficult when it comes to the comfort of her visitors. The house is situated about 5 minutes drive from the local village of Agios Mironas with it's few tavernas, patisserie and local shops. A small hamlet with an impressive history. Stelios met us in town when we arrived to make it easier to find the hotel. But there's a walking path through the trees and it's only 500m to the centre of the village. Our room was the Presidential Suite which is an accurate description. It is a total of 115 square metres divided into four areas including two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms a study and a walk in Closet. It is very lavishly furnished and luxurious in every way. A complimentary bottle of wine made from grapes in the next valley and bowl of fruit greeted us on arrival. Everything is locally produced and mostly organic. There is nothing like a bowl of thick Greek yoghurt and honey and fruit to start the day. They even use crushed dried olive seeds industrially produced as a fuel to heat their boiler. Tomatoes, courgette and cucumbers all grow in the garden and combine with locally produced feta cheese to create an exquisite Greek salad. Stella brought out delicious vanilla and chocolate desserts while we were at the pool and she has been incredibly helpful pointing out local places to visit and appreciate the rich history, culture and beauty of Crete. Vergis Epavlis is located about 15 kilometres from Heraklion and easily accessible by car for those who want to visit the world class museum of Minoan and Mycenaean history. The Palace of Knossos, wonder of the ancient world, is a similar distance away. And these is no shortage of beaches 25minutes away by car. We would thoroughly recommend staying here for anyone who wants a relaxing and interesting holiday away from heaving tourist beaches. Our hosts were delightful and we could not have asked for more. The season continues to the middle or end of October. We stayed in Mid September and it was about 85 degrees with sunny blue skies every day. Can't think of a single thing we are not absolutely delighted about. And can't wait to come back again in the future.

Vergis Epavlis surpassed all our expectations. The location is idyllic and only 25 mins from Heraklion. The proprietors Stella and Stelios , welcomed us with heartfelt hospitality and made our stay unforgettable. As vegans we were catered for impeccably by the lovely Stella who was given a bit of a challenge but one that she rose to brilliantly. Freshly cooked breakfast each day with delicious local produce. The facilities enhanced our stay-our suite "The House of Angels" was stunning with amazing views from our private balcony. We loved the pool, again with amazing views and a perfect place to cool off and relax after a day of exploring. We will definitely return to this piece of paradise in a stunning mountain location in a beautiful and friendly village. The grounds contain so many different types of fruit trees also. Figs, Pommegrante, Plums, Lime, Lemon and Pear..all of which we were encouraged to take as much of as we want. My personal favourite was the Fig tree near the back of the swimming pool. All and all, a fantastic holiday in Crete. No hesitation in recommending this place. My first time in Crete but certainly not my last...

This is our 3rd year in Crete and again we stayed here at Vergis Epavlis. We actually feel like it's our home! That's how welcoming Stelios and Stella are. The place is so clean and beautifully decorated. Lovely kitchen inside the villa too so can cook too. Gorgeous pool and Stella serves delicious food throughout the day. Nothing is too much for them.. .... looking forward to next time
