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.

Travel to Vamos, Crete

Holiday rental accommodation in Vamos is very easy to reach from the UK. ThomsonFly offer cheap flights to Vamos via Chania International Airport (CHQ) just 30km to the east.

A superb location and magnificent villa and views

5 of 5
Our villa for the week was spotless and had everything we could wish for. The only downside was we only booked for a week due to work commitments, that was our biggest mistake, we will be back and for longer next time!! Everthing in the villa was well thought out and the support staff on site, were very efficient and inobtrusive and very friendly. Our trip was made easy due to constant contact with Debra and all went to plan. Would we recommend the villa most certainly, we have been on many villa holidays and this is in the top two of all the villas we have stayed in. Car is essential and allows you to explore all local sites, Chania is only 30 minutes away and Vamos is the local town with great restaurants and small shops, great local beaches. Many thanks Debra and team for a very memorable holiday we be returning!! Paul and Fiona Mayor

Fabulous

5 of 5
The apartment was perfect and the roof terrace was stunning with views across the bay. Alymirda was a lovely village which had everything you would need , restaurants , cafes, supermarket and a bakery. Taxis and the bus stop just further up the road. Panos was more than helpful, left a good welcome pack for our arrival and kept in touch with us during our two week stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Nothing was too much of a problem for him, even when the front door to the apartment slammed closed while on the roof terrace and we were locked out. Within 15 minutes we had access. What a fantastic host !!! Thank you Panos and thank your father.
