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.

                                                        Stunning villa

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        This villa is even more beautiful than the photographs. 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.

                                                        We had a wonderful time in this villa. Clearly well kept and well managed we were welcomed locally by the representative, and the owner. Technology in abundance and a fantastic view over the bay. Locally the food and nightlife was great value for money - having spent week 1 in Rethymno where things were more costly! The pool and the view made this villa worthy of recommendation!

                                                        Beautiful, perfect, idyllic, everything you need!

                                                        This villa is a true gem and we had a fabulous holiday in Kefalas and Chania. Description very accurate and in fact the villa also has a private underground garage, ideal for keeping our hire car safe and also cool. Excellent communication and driving directions from the airport and arrangements to collect keys, we were also given a guided tour when we arrived. Kefalas has two mini markets in walking distance and tavernas and bars too, lovely picturesque village and friendly locals and service everywhere, nothing was ever too much trouble and we felt very welcome from day one. The villa itself is just beautiful with everything you could possibly need from the outdoor BBQ, sun loungers and parasols, kitchen utensils to wifi. It was peaceful and in a tranquil setting and we loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea watching the world go by and the sun rise/set. The villa was cleaned and fresh linen and towels provided mid week too. We enjoyed several days out to nearby Lake Kournas, Rethymno and Chania, and loved wandering around the old towns and harbours and Lake Kournas was so beautiful. It was lovely driving through the hidden villages of Crete instead of taking the National Road at times, and experiencing the real Cretan lifestyle. And it was also lovely returning to Mylo Villa and enjoying the privacy and tranquility of your own villa and particularly the fabulous pool. Kefalas felt like home for a week. We would highly recommend this property, it truly is a hidden gem, and in fact hope to return later this year and take our parents. And we want to say a special thank you to the owner and his lovely family too who could not do enough to make you feel welcome. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful villa, and we hope to be back soon :) Julie and Andy, Wirral, UK
