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 hosts went above and beyond to make our week long stay a memorable. We arrived late and were greeted by the host who had prepared a traditional snack for us. He had also left breakfast for the next few days and a lovely bottle of wine because it was too late to pick up supplies from a store. The location of the white lotus villa is perfect if your after peace and quiet but still wanting to be within walking distance to shops and local restaurants as well as being close enough to Chania town by bus and within kilometres of multiple beaches. The views from the villa are breathtaking and the sunset view which you get from the front door is to die for. Everything about this villa is that of a 5 star hotel. I highly recommend this place and I would definitely stay here again.

Car is necessary. The only negatives (not for me but other quests) no WiFi ( I can live without it) and that we had to go home.

The villa was clean and tidy and the kitchen was well equipped with everything that you needed including a gas BBQ on one of the terraces off the upstairs lounge. We enjoyed many evenings on the terraces eating our meals watching the sun setting, which was an amazing site. You could also see the aeroplanes coming in over the sea to land at Chania airport with minimal noise. The pool is a decent size and there is also a shower at one end to use before entering. The weather as a whole was warm and sunny however sometimes it was very windy at the villa. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Challis in Crete and would definitely recommend it for a relaxing quiet holiday.
