Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Vamos - Luxury Villa De Tara

Sleeps 6 Persons Maximum

Villa De Tara is a recently built villa, modern in design and finished to a high specification, and is set in almost 1000 sqm of private land. Sitting on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Kefalas, high above the sea, De Tara enjoys panoramic views of the bay of Georgioupolis all the way to the town of Rethymnon, and the Psiloritis Mountain range, including Mount Ida. Villa De Tara has been deliberately designed by it's owners so that all of the bedrooms, main living room, terraces, and the pool area benefit from the marvellous sea views and incredible sunsets.

Tastefully decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard, the villa has a warm, light and airy ambience, painted and tiled throughout in soft creams with mediterranean blue aluminium window frames, shutters and doors. All modern conveniences are provided including satellite TV, DVD and CD players, ceiling fans and air conditioning units in the bedrooms and living room. For the cooler nights in the early or late part of the season, the a/c units also double up as heaters, or cosy up infront of the open fire place in the lounge as you look out over the evr changing sea. There is solar powered hot water or a back-up emersion heater, and an off-road parking area at the front.

The villa has a number of outdoor terraces, so you can find sun or shade at all times throughout the day. Wrought iron gates open to the graveled garden area with flower beds and terraces. The swimming pool and covered BBQ area overlook the sea.

Great villa, tranquil spot with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and the area. Stayed here with my partner and two young children. Stella had been extremely helpful and responsive to all my questions pre arrival. I felt very reassured and confident about our stay.

The villa itself is large, clean, modern and very comfortable. With all the amenities supplied and lots of outdoor space. I loved staying here. The pool is fantastic - as all all the views from the terrace and bedrooms. Beds are comfy and bathrooms are spotless.

There are a few houses nearby but none of them were occupied while we were there, so it was very private and peaceful- just what we wanted as we live in busy London! It was amazing seeing the thousands of stars come out at night, and hearing the goats nearby.

The nearest village is Kefalas which you can walk to in 15 minutes, it has a few very nice tavernas and a mini supermarket. Vamos is a larger village - 10 minute drive away, with a fantastic bakery and some nice coffee shops and more restaurants. Everyone is really friendly and welcoming.

We visited the larger and beautiful ancient towns, Rethymno and Chania. There are some nice sandy beaches nearby- we liked Kalyves and Georgioupoli best. You will get amazing views as you drive to these beaches, Crete is so stunning.

I would recommend visiting this lovely area of Crete and this fantastic villa if you are looking for a relaxing and interesting holiday. We would love to come back for another stay!

Mooie villa!

  • 4 of 5

Net terug van 11 dagen in deze villa. Prachtig huis met schitterend uitzicht over zee en erg mooi: de infinity pool. Het huis is voorzien van alle comfort, goed uitgeruste keuken en alles is heel schoon. Het is alleen moeilijk te vinden, het ligt even buiten Kefalas aan een doodlopende weg bovenop een berg (ca. 400 meter!) Een auto is beslist noodzakelijk en als je niet van eenzaamheid houdt dan moet je daar niet heen. Wij vonden het heerlijk rustig! Het dorp Kefalas stelt weinig voor. Maar als je naar een mooi strand wilt, boodschappen doen in een supermarkt of lekker uit eten wilt dan zit je in ca. 10 minuten in Georgiopoulis, erg leuk stadje met een mooi strand. Nog een tip voor de eigenaar: een afdakje voor de auto op de parkeerplaats zou wel fijn zijn! Wij hebben genoten maar 11 dagen was lang genoeg, volgende keer zoeken we een villa die iets meer "in de bewoonde wereld" staat.

Kefalas is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in the region. The centre of the village is only a short walk from Villa De Tara through narrow, winding, bougainvillea lined streets. The village has 2 tavernas, 2 well stocked mini markets, and 4 kafenions, one with internet access. There are eight churches in Kefalas, some of which are historic, and the villagers celebrate with a feast day on August the 15th. On the outskirts of the village towards Drapanos there is the ruin of an ancient windmill, and you will also see many old corn threshing circles dotted around the area. Villa De Tara is just 10 minutes by car to the gorgeous rocky cove at Ombrosgialos, which is famous for its turquoise water, great snorkelling, and lovely taverna nestled on the rocks. The village of Vamos which has a bank, shops and 2 great tavernas is only 5 kms away, and the lovely village of Almyrida, built around a crescent shaped sandy beach, is only 8 kms away. This beach is very shallow and safe, perfect for children. Lining the beach are many excellent tavernas, cafes and shops. Also in Almyrida there is a water sports centre which rents out kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans.
