General Information

Villa Amaryllis is built on a small development overlooking olive groves, grape yards and the distant mountains and is within walking distance of an attractive Cretan village and close to the main coastal highway.

This house is built from natural stone by artisans who are experts in buildings of this type.

In total, 268 endemic plants can be found in Crete. Wildflowers of spring, various trees, rare, cretan herbs, gorges and caves, wild birds as well as unique small sandy or rocky beaches could make the holiday an unforgettable experience.
