Location

Amari, Crete, Greece

Set in a majestic mountain landscape of ancient olive groves, Byzantine chapels and a delightful labyrinth of country lanes, the Amari Valley is a joy to explore.
Rich in nature, the area features tiny hamlets largely untouched by tourism, important Minoan and other historical sites and some of the most exciting gorges of Crete.
Equidistant from Crete's north and south coasts and set against the ever-changing colors of the mountains, this Shangri-La is truly Crete off-the-beaten-track.

I’m a construction engineer and live in Rethymno with my wife Roula and our two daughters. When I returned to Crete after university, I realised that our old family house in Amari was in need of repair; it had been my grandparents’ home and was a place full of sweet memories. So, I embarked on a journey - a labour of love: to restore the house and keep the memory of those idyllic childhood summers alive. Today, I’m delighted to welcome guests from all over the world to our property, and introduce them to the beauty of the Amari valley. When my diary allows, I love to accompany guests to interesting places nearby, like the tiny Byzantine chapels hidden in the ancient olive groves, or even just around the village, for a visit to the Old School's Museum or for a drink at the local cafe. When I’m not in Amari (and not at work), I enjoy yoga, music, and riding my motorcycle. I have recently become the proud owner of a small vineyard and began to make my own raki. Soon, as a novice winemaker, I look forward to offering you my home-made organic wine. It’s always a pleasure for me to answer any questions about the villas or the Amari, so please, contact me.
