Wonderfull Holyday in Villa AGRIELIA
Villa AGRIELIA is a beautiful accommodation with a great view over the valey.
The owner is very hospitable and we got several times surprises like fruits and self made meals and eggs during our stay.
He was always available for us and very courteous.
The Villa was very clean and the cleaning women was coming two times a week.
The Villa is very separated and a car is required for the stay.
We were living with 4 people in the house and really enjoyed our Holliday in Villa AGRIELIA.
A beautiful authentic villa that maintains its character whilst providing all mod cons.
Extremely well looked after. The owners pay considerable attention to detail. The personal touches provided make the stay so very pleasant. We loved it.
Wonderfull traditional villa
We stayed for the first time last summer in Agrielia traditional villa and i have to say that this is a really beautiful villa. We were completely satisfied with the facilities, the service, the cleaningness as well as the location. Highly recommended!!!
Beautiful villa, with every detail thought of.
Our family had a wonderful week at Villa Agrielia. It was the perfect base to explore and a secluded refuge to return to. Stelios and Maria could not have been more welcoming or helpful and it was lovely to be left a selection of local treats to enjoy. The villa is perfect, if you like a quiet spot away from the usual tourist routes, although it's easy to get to Heraklion and other sights and is only 15 minutes from the airport. Plenty of shops in the next village, Episkopi, and a lovely taverna recommended by Stelios.
The villa is beautifully traditional with cool rooms and plenty of space. The main terrace and pool area are green and leafy, totally private and very sunny. There are three other terraces and balconies to choose from or seek solitude on. House is very well equipped with excellent aircon in the bedrooms. We only found Greek TV channels but we didn't miss the TV and the wifi is great, certainly able to stream a movie when needed.
All in all, a lovely holiday. Thank you!
Very well appointed and good attention to detail.
Communication throughout the booking process was excellent and we were greeted at the villa by the owner Stelios who was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed staying at there for the week and exploring the local area. It was very clean and well maintained. Stelios had thought of everything needed to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
The villa is lovely, and well equipped with a beautiful outside area and pool. Stelios, Maria and the extended family were helpful, informative and very friendly.
However there is an issue with the cicadas (tzitzikas) who nest in the trees around by the pool, the noise they make was intolerable.
Sgourokefali is a wonderful village, with breathtaking view, just 18 km away from the city, the port and the airport of Heraklion and only 10km from Amnissos beach.
