    Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Vamos, Crete your home away from home

    The Vamos municipality of Crete is a wonderful rural area encompassing mountains, native woodland and wild coastlines, adorned with beautifully peaceful Cretan villages. The whole Vamos area is one of wild natural beauty, still largely untouched by the hands of tourism in Greece, providing the perfect escape throughout the year. If the staggering peace afforded by Vamos lettings, and the wider Chania area are not enough of an incentive to explore the region, the stunning beaches and glorious countryside will be!

    Things to do on holiday in Vamos, Crete

    The coastline of Vamos is amazingly rugged, meaning that although you will never have any trouble finding a stunning, serene stretch of sand on which to lay your towel, access to the beaches can be steep or taxing in some places. However, for such untamed natural beauty, scrambling over a couple of rocks is a very small price to pay!

    If you are looking to settle in with the locals, enjoy the traditional Cretan culture of the area and truly immerse yourself in the relaxing Mediterranean lifestyle, a holiday home in Vamos is the perfect answer. Almost every white washed stone street hides a local taverna, restaurant or café, and old buildings have been lovingly restored.

    If you are lucky enough to have access to Vamos accommodation in April, you can join the festivities of the Hochlidovradia or snail’s eve! A huge feast of snails, cooked in various Cretan ways is the focal point for the festival, although there is plenty of music and dancing to enjoy if your appetite is not suitably encouraged!

    Places to visit on holiday in Vamos, Crete

    The village of Vamos itself is a hugely traditional Cretan village, with wide, stone paved streets bordered by wonderfully overgrown stone walls which give the whole village a fantastically natural, timeless atmosphere. The traditional cafes, or kefeneion, make fantastic places to sit for an hour or so, planning your day, watching the world drift slowly by and soaking in the sun, but be warned, many, many hours can be lost to their charm! There are two beautiful churches in Vamos, the Agios Nikolaos and the Agios Georgios, both of which make for stunning viewing, both inside and out.
