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 location and aspect were lovely and it had everything we needed for a perfect week away. We found it hard to leave the villa to go touring around! There are a couple of different viewing areas to watch the sunset in the evenings which were the perfect end to the day. The village nearby has a lovely little square within walking distance and a few restaurants to have dinner. The management of the property couldn't have been better, they looked after everything we needed and more. We are already planning a return trip next year.

The Villa is excellent with all of the amentities required. The property is very well maintained and very clean. There are excellent views from the upstairs balcony, especially the mountains in the morning. Its quiet location masks the fact that it is only a few minutes walk to the beach and bars. Almyrida is a small village with excellent bars and tavernas along the beach. While being small, the bus services are very good and run often from Alymrida to the resort of Chania. Overall, this is a lovely Villa in a beautiful location. Highly Recommended.

The view from the upstairs patio is amazing especially at sunset. I had the twin room downstairs which was lovely for me, nice and quiet, the patio doors lead out to a patio area near the pool and outside my door was a beautiful jasmine tree. The pool area is great we spent most of our time here, there are 6 comfortable sun loungers and parasols.The villa is situated at the top of a hill 1km from Almyrida which has nice tavernas (very romantic as the sun is setting)and small beaches. We did have a hire car but to be honest it only takes 20 mins to walk to the town and if need be a return taxi cost 7 euro (the walk there and back we even did with a pushchair so is do-able if your feeling fit enough) There are many tours available from the town, so plenty of options to travel around, we walked the Samaria gorge on our last day..stunning but now I need new knees haha. Driving around is easy enough once you've mastered the wrong side of the road and that most cars drive into the hard shoulder to enable overtaking, so watch your mirrors. The nearest seaside town is Kalyves a ten minute drive, well worth a visit, Chania and Georgiopolis are a 35 min drive. As a family of 6 with small children we all loved our stay and would definitely return. A big thank you to Peter and Alison for sharing their lovely home.
