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.

Weather in Vamos, Crete

A self catering Vamos letting is a wonderful escape at any time of year. In the summer months, temperatures are blissfully warm in the area without ever becoming uncomfortably hot. Average temperatures in July and August reach 27°C, with daily peaks usually reaching 35°C but not much more. In the winter months, you are unlikely to find temperatures dipping below 10°C.

The villa is well located with good beaches and charming villages nearby. The pool and views of the mountains are superb. The villa has excellent modern facilities and is very spacious. The owners provided a great guide with helpful suggestions for places to visit and good restaurants. David and Maria looked after us and the villa very well. A car is essential for getting to the villa and visiting all of the beautiful places in Crete.

For a few days we were 12 and we were comfortably accommodated with several seating areas and long tables in both the living area and outside. We thought it was a fabulous villa and garden – the pool was always clean and beautiful, the views stunning, beds amazing and, although the kitchen was small, it was manageable and we had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend it to people who want a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings. The villa was cleaned twice weekly and was spotless. The local village is within 7 mins walk with lovely fresh bread available daily from the very friendly and welcoming couple who run the shop. The nearest beach only about 15 mins walk and has a good watersports centre. Crete is a fabulous island and the villa is a good base to visit Chania and the north coast.

It is a comfortable, quiet villa, with 3 bedrooms. The view on the white mountains is beautiful. We enjoyed to visit the West part of Crete and also to go to a nearby beach. Very pleasant stay. Nice welcome by the owners!
