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 rooms are very comfortable and the views stunning. I especially loved the roof terrace and swimming in the infinity pool. We enjoyed barbacueing in the evenings. Alexandra was a welcoming, generous host who made sure that we tried some of the delicious local specialties. Thoroughly recommend!

It has everything a home away from home needs and is very relaxing, especially the balcony and patio area where we spent most of our time when at the villa. The kitchen is well equipped along with the living area where books, beach supplies, music facilities and even games were provided which all came in useful. During our stay we walked to all the local areas including bars, restaurants and the beach although a rental car is recommended if you wish to view more of the beautiful island. Overall we had a brilliant holiday and cannot wait to return.

Immaculately clean. Lovely hosts who have gone to every trouble into deliver a wonderful experience. Cooking us some welcome treats and dinner on 2 nights was so lovely. The property is genuinely safe, secluded, totally private and the views wonderfully relaxing. The kitchen is great and has everything you would ever need plus towel, robes etc all provided. Great wifi inside and out plus Netflix which is a rare pleasure to see in Crete. We loved the design and pool (although note not heated - we like cold pools in the heat, so not an issue for us). Would be perfect for a couple to escape as we did or large family / group and nice to see planned for disabled guests too. Plenty of options within 20 mins drive for supermarkets and restaurants. We had a lovely relaxing stay and having stayed all over Europe in high quality properties, would not hesitate in recommending this great property and perfect warm Cretian hosts.
