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.

Im Poolbereich gibt es nur ein Laufband (auf den Fotos waren es 2!). So mussten wir halt nacheinander laufen. Das war auch nicht weiter schlimm Punkt teilweise sind Fotos auf der Internetseite gezeigt von der anderen nicht vermieteten Haushälfte Komma welche die Hausherren selber bewohnen. Die vermietete Haushälfte ist auch auf den späteren Fotos zu sehen (aber deutlich weniger schön). Die Vermieterin wohnte zu dem Zeitpunkt als wir dort waren, nicht in dem Haus. So hatten wir das ganze Gelände für uns alleine. Der Geschirrspüler befindet sich in der Außenküche die wir nicht viel genutzt hatten, da tagsüber Wespen kam und das nachts sich mal die eine oder andere Grille hinzu gesellt hat. Wünschenswert wäre für unsere Zwecke ein Geschirrspüler im Haus gewesen. Der beheizbare Pool war 26 Grad warm ( nur von außen zu erreichen) . Der Ankunftstag wurde uns netterweise nicht berechnet und da während unseres Aufenthalts an zwei Tagen ein Fest stattfand in der kleinen Kapelle wurden uns weitere 50 € erlassen. Außerdem begrüßte uns die Besitzerin mit einem gefüllten Kühlschrank: Toast, Marmelade, Käse, Wurst, Milch, Wasser und Obst. Das war sehr nett. Auf dem Foto ist auch ein schön gedeckter Tisch abgebildet ( das hübsche Geschirr insbesondere die Weingläsern haben wir jedoch vermisst). Auf Nachfrage gab es aber zumindest eine Tischdecke. In unserer Haushälfte hat es insbesondere unter der Treppe ein wenig nach Urin gerochen. Die Putzfrau kam alle drei Tage und hat sauber gemacht. Die Matratzen waren sehr bequem ,mittleren Härtegrades. Die Fenster hatten Moskitoschutz. die Lage des Hauses ist ruhig. Es gibt ein Pferd ,dass Kinder aber nur in Begleitung eines Erwachsenen streicheln dürfen. Gefüttert werden darf es gar nicht. Im Garten wachsen Granatäpfel Kiwis Äpfel und Quitten; alles was man findet darf man verzehren. Das Haus ist strategisch gut gelegen die drittgrößte Stadt Rethymno (wunderschöne Altstadt) auf der Insel ist in 12 Minuten Fahrzeit zu erreichen . Es gibt eine kleine Bucht, wenn man aus dem Örtchen raus fährt oder 15 Min. auf der Hauptstraße links Richtung Chania (auch sehenswert), gibt es einen sehr langen Sandstrand, dort kann man für kleines Geld auch ganz gut essen. Ein Muss ist der 2,5 Stunden entfernte Strand Elafonissi...Ein Traum. Auch wenn unsere Haushälfte nicht die Schönste war.Der Urlaub war toll. Blueray Player vorhanden

The terrace is fantastic with excellent views of the white mountains, the carob tree is not only beautiful but offers dappled shade. Although it is relatively close to the village (with tavernas ans shop) and about 20 minutes from two seaside towns we felt like we're deep in the country where little has changed in years. There are wild birds, plants, crickets, frogs and cicadas, along with spectacular mountains and gorgeous sunsets. The farm has chickens, pigs and goats and sheep feeding in the olive groves. It is full of the sounds of a farm (cockerels and sheep bells) as well as wild birds and insects. We loved it and would come again in a heart beat apart from access issues. It is not the house's fault as it is a historic building but there are steps (1,2 or three) into every room and if you are arthritic it makes moving through the building a bit difficult. The bedrooms are large and comfortable but the living space is small though this is compensated for by the fantastic terrace. Maria comes into clean regularly and is really friendly as are the neighbours and the people in the taverna in the village. Great place, brilliant locality and really interesting area with historic Ancient Greek site and good beaches.
