About the property

Cottage in Vamos, Nr. Chania, Crete - Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Walk to Village Centre

A great opportunity to stay in an original Cretan house dating back over 200 years. The house has been beautifully restored to offer a unique holiday villa and retains many original features such as stone archways, wooden stairway and ceilings. The modern, sophisticated furnishings add style and total ease of living while the maturing trees offer total privacy for the swimming pool. The great bonus is that the Vamos village centre is only a 10 minute walk. The village offers tavernas, a bakery, butcher, post office and a health centre and there several beaches and coves within a 10 minute drive. Located equal distance between Rethymnon and Chania, providing the perfect base from which to explore the other areas of the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We found the villa extremely comfortable and relaxing. The pool area was lovely, especially for lunches under the trees and it was lovely to breakfast on the downstairs terrace and wake up slowly under the vines. The villa is very well equipped and everything in the kitchen was easy to use, with lots of space. All the appliances are of good quality, as are the furnishings, with many tasteful extras, which make one feel at home. The master bedroom with en suite bathroom is very spacious and the bed very comfortable. We would have no hestiation in staying at Fig Tree Villa in the future.' Laraine + Hugh, UK
