Really great villa in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely good, well presented, well equiped and well looked after villa. We had a really enjoyable stay. There is a lovely personal feel to the house, right from the decorations and furnishing down to the extremey generous courtesy basket of essential (and luxury!) provisions. The laundry and cleaning service is excellent and comprehensive.

The village of Vamos has a really good community feel to it and there are several good restaurants/tavernas/cafes within fifteen minutes walk of the villa. An easy drive to either Chania or Rethymno and well placed for access to most of the attractions of western Crete. No hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone.

Woderful Place to Experience Crete!

  • 5 of 5

We are a blended family with a total of four teen and young adult kids. This was a perfect place for us to spend a week in Crete. It was a great base location and offered a relaxing 'stay around the pool opportunity' when some of the boys had been over-traveled. We all enjoyed walking into town, which was the short walk that had been promised. The morning views are spectacular Rena is such a wonderful host. She was close at hand if we had questions and had thought of all of the possible needs. This was one of our nicest exeriences and Vamos was charming. We hope to return with my extended family!
