TWO VILLAS, EACH WITH ITS OWN PRIVATE POOL.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Vamos - Dolphin and Octopus Villas

Beautiful sea and mountain views and within easy walking distance of Vamos.

At the heart of the Apokoronas Peninsula in Western Crete sits the thriving old village of Vamos. Although only a 10-minute drive from many of the beautiful and unspoilt local beaches, Vamos provides a year-round haven, away from it all. Bank facilities, Post Office, bakery, supermarkets, 24-hour Health Centre and three good tavernas are all to be found within the village. It is the perfect place to base yourself for a vacation - whether it be a sunshine summer holiday or at any time of the year to enjoy the beautiful surrounding area, so rich in flora and wildlife, not to mention the thousands of years of history and archaeology.

A 5-minute walk from the centre of Vamos, at the edge of the village, you will find Dolphin and Octopus Villas. Both villas look across the village to Souda Bay, and have wonderful views of the White Mountains to the southwest. They are designed in traditional local style, but provide every modern comfort and facility. Each has its own swimming pool.

Dolphin Villa in Vamos April 23, 2011

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-May-2011
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2011
We had an excellent holiday in this villa. It was very clean and tidy is not overlooked or noisy and had excellent views of the white mountains to the rear and the distant sea to the front. It is on the very edge of the small town of Vamos. We were there in the early season mainly to look at the orchids and other wildflowers and we were not disappointed. There was still a little bit of rain about which meant that the hedgerows fields and meadows were awash with colour. We underestimated the distances involved in getting to the high mountains and if you're looking for flowers it is probably better to have expert guidance but at that time of the year you will still see more than you would ever see in the United Kingdom just by walking within 10 km of Vamos itself. The villa is very comfortable for four and there is a room downstairs available for a small premium if there are more of you than that. Not that we needed it but there was excellent assistance available from the caretaker and the owners brother. Vamos itself struck us as probably the best place to stay in the area.

Vamos is the small but thriving capital of the Apokaronas region of Crete, and its centre is within a 5-minute walk from our villas. The village is well served with tavernas, shops, post office, bank and 24-hour health centre, but is well away from the busy tourist areas. Several local beaches are 10-15 minutes drive away. Chania is within easy reach as are other local attractions, which include the Aptera archaeological site, horse-riding in Georgioupolis, Limnopoulis water park, Samaria Gorge and much more.
