VILLA OCTOPUS VILLA: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 4

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

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.

EOT: The Greek Tourist Authority (EOT) has issued EOT Licence Number MHTE 1042K123K2944701 in relation to Dolphin and Octopus Villas

OCTOPUS - GREAT SPOT!

  • 4 out of 5
Arrived late at night and met at villa to be given essential info on our accommodation and Vamos.Everything we needed by way of kitchen and laundry equipment. Lovely pool and nice spacious sun terrace. Also good sized balcony leading from upstairs bedroom - view from here amazing!

Vamos is a good place to stay being only a short drive to the coast and with good access to places such as Georgeopolis and Kournas Lake and within easy reach of the national highway. Only two of its three tavernas were open whilst we were there but there were plenty of "fast food" places and we never had a problem eating out. Prices, quality and service were all good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending both the Octopus and the village of Vamos. Great holiday!

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.
