What a wonderful time we had here in the small but beautiful tour of the Old Vamos. - We stayed for 2 weeks in a beautiful house. We enjoyed the hospitality and freindship of the people. We always will remember Crete for its nature, its lovely citees, its beaches, its Mountains and of course its fab gorges. Crete will always stay in our hearts.
Very pleased with the villa, great pool very good for young children. Shady and cooler areas to sit. Lovely setting and well equipped. Internet was very good. A few more serving dishes and cooking pans would be useful. 2 teatowels for a week was not enough although we had ample towels for house and pool.another umbrella around sunbeds would be welcome. Mary and Dave were very helpful. Good standard but a little expensive Would use again
This is our third visit to Vamos but the first time we had booked this Villa. The pre-departure communication was excellent and the owners even arranged the car -hire of us which was perfect! The Villa itself is situated just outside the village and shares the driveway with one other sister property. Each villa is secluded enough from the other to allow privacy but if 2 large families booked together , that would also work. The Villa was very well stocked with everything you would need including those annoying little thing that make a big difference! For example, a few dishwasher tablets, tea/coffee etc ! Everywhere was very clean and in good order. Our daughter chose the bedroom in the basement - cool and large ! The pool area has plentiful seating areas and offers an amazing view of the White Mountains, whilst the bedrooms on the first floor offer a large balcony looking towards the sea. Please note this is the West Villa - the East Villa has slightly different aspects. We would certainly book the Villa again - but book early avoid disappointment !! We were fortunate enough to meet the owners when we were there , they are charming, as are Mary and David who look after the villas. Thank you everyone! Liz, Howard and Ella
P.S. We would say there were only two very very small points. the Directions to the Villa could have been clearer, we did get a little lost- but this is easily remedied. The beds are firm (no problem for me) but a little on the short size - lengthwise for my husband!
Beautiful property in Vamos. Exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Because it was early spring and a bit cold, we were asked to pay additional for heat (in floor and radiators.) Not a problem. All appliances worked. Kitchen had salt, pepper & tea, so plan on bringing or buying anything else you might need. Although we knew it would be too chilly to swim, it was wonderful to sit by the pool and relax. Loved the morning view of the mountains from the outdoor dining room table. The caretakers were helpful and accommodating. There was a problem with the internet due to a recent storm, but within a day it up and running. Easy to walk the road into Vamos, but be sure to take a flashlight (torch), if you are returning after dark. Excellent tavernas and bakery in Vamos.
Perfect place to use as a home-base to explore and hike in the area.
De villa wordt goed onderhouden. Het zwembad wordt 3 keer per week gereinigd. Alle vertrekken zijn voorzien van airco. We have enjoyed during our stay at the luxury villa with swimming pool and several terraces. The location of the villa is perfect in relation to the village center, where you will find the bakery, shops and several restaurants. Within 15 minutes you're at the nearest beach. We had a great holiday and will definitely come back.
Our family had a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. It has every facility you could possibly need and Vamos village with its tavernas and shops is just a short stroll away. We had a spectacular storm just a couple of days into our stay, which blew sand in from Libya, and the caretakers, Mary and David came in twice to make sure the pool was completely clean. Georgeoupolis and Kalives, with sandy beaches, are just a short drive away, and we drove into Chania for our daughter's birthday for a trip in 'Captain Nick's' glass bottomed boat, which is a must. Our favourite Taverna in Vamos was the very welcoming Good Heart, (Kalee Karthia), which has a simple but incredibly tasty menu. I would definitely recommend a stay at Drydakia villa and hope very much to return ourselves in the future.
Wir waren zu viert und einem Baby für 14 Tage in der Villa.
Die Bilder entsprechen den Örtlichkeiten vor Ort, sehr sauber und alles vorhanden was man braucht und wie beschrieben.
Der Blick vom Pool auf die Berge und auf das Meer war super.
Die Villa wird wöchentlich gereinigt und der Pool mindestens zwei Mal in der Woche.
In wenigen Minuten ist man in Vamos mit einem tollen Bäcker, Tavernen und Lebensmittelgeschäften - eher Tante Emmaladen😀😀😀
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen irgendwann wieder.
Wir empfehlen die Villa gerne weiter, ein idealer Ort zum Erholen, ideal für Kinder und ruhig gelegen.
Viele Grüße an die Vermieter.
