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 views...Oh. My. God. Absolutely amazing, sometimes it's hard to believe that you're actually seeing what you are seeing it is so stunning. The peaceful waterfall from the infinity pool is so relaxing and you don't hear hustle and bustle as there's no cars that will drive past the villa ever because of the designated parking. The villa is clean and the owner is an amazing amazing person. He helped me out at 10pm the night before when I was in a pinch. I am forever grateful for that. He responded immediately to ever question I had and would text or email just to check in because he knew I was traveling alone. He even answered close to 1am when the power went out and I had a mild anxiety attack! (Power came back on within 5 minutes and I assume high winds knocked it out). He is a very gracious person & host. The villa is absolutely comfortable, the balcony off the bedrooms is a great spot for morning coffee with an INCREDIBLE view. The decor is very minimalism which I love because it doesn't clutter the mind and is very clean yet feels like home. There's a washer which was nice to do laundry before leaving, and a very update kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal! The little town is quite quaint and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Although you feel extremely remote and away from it all, it's not a far drive at all to restaurants, beaches and other attractions. This is the perfect villa to relax, unwind, do yoga by the pool and you'll probably not even turn the television on, I didn't. Lots of friendly cats will stop by to say hello also! I am a femal that was traveling along and felt extremely extremely safe staying in the villa. Perfect for families or for singles/couples. You won't regret renting Pon's villa and I hope to be back in the future!

Panos was an excellent host. He was there to greet us when we arrived and came to see us just before our taxi arrived to (sadly) take us to airport. The apartment, situated in the centre of Almyrida, is spacious and has everything you will need for your stay. We loved our holiday.
