Villa Vamos is a dazzling, white-washed authentic Cretan home set across three stylish storeys, emanating simple and authentic charm, along with every contemporary comfort with a private pool and stylish outdoor living.

Standing majestically in its own grounds, with a pretty walled garden and wrought-iron gates, there are beautiful views to the sea against a backdrop of rugged hills and rolling countryside. Outdoor living is styled to perfection, with elegant dining sets, private nooks for a tranquil morning coffee and breezy balcony to enjoy the views of the sun softening over the bay with a glass of wine. The sleek terrace is offset by glistening private pool, framed with loungers and day beds with the shade of parasols to enjoy poolside restoration.

Tranquil, private and low-key, yet a short distance to the local amenities, this home ticks all the right boxes. All the contemporary comforts are in place, as well as a treadmill in one of the bedrooms for those who wish to sustain their fitness regime.

With floor-to-ceiling glass at every turn and large picture windows, this house is characterised by bright, light interiors while the bedrooms are chic, understated and serene, each with stylish touches and unique accents of colour. Open-plan living is finessed with top-grade fittings, natural timbers and pared-down luxury.

Villa Vamos is where simplicity meets authentic local style; where comfort meets Mediterranean living, with rural meets sedate island life, in a sumptuous spot, to escape the crowds.

Villa Vamos is nestled within walking distance to the traditional village of Vamos, the historical heart of the beautiful Apokoronas region of Chania, with views to both the sea and the rugged hills, it is in an ideal spot.

The pretty village, Vamos village is 25km from Chania, set in West Crete in the foothills of “The White Mountains.” Rethymno is only 35km distance, and the capital city of Crete Heraklion is 135km away. Vamos is in a semi-mountainous spot, 300m above sea level, yet only a few kilometres to the sea.

Known for its compelling architectural heritage, Vamos draws visitors for its preserved traditional stone road, sublime painted Chapels of Virgin Mary (dating to the 13th century), and Karidi Monastery which boasts a spectacular original olive press with 12 arches.

The beautiful Chania has a dash of Florence about it and a touch of the Venetian grandeur, the stunning harbour is a majestic site during the changing light of the day while the old port, narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants blend for a charming ambience. Mountain villages offer a window into the “inner Crete” with hiking trails and archaeological sites at every turn.

How to reach Chania

There are two ways to reach Chania: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane:
Chania Airport (CHQ) is only a 20 minutes ride away from central Chania. During the summer months, frequents overseas and domestic flights are performed. In most of the cases, there are available buses that connect Chania city and most of the villas. You can also hire a car from one of the many rental companies at the airport, or alternatively get a taxi to bring you right to your doorstep.

By ferry:
If you choose to do an island-hopping trip and use the ferry as a method of transportation, then the closest port is in Souda, only 8km from the centre of Chania. Only ferries from Piraeus in Athens or Heraklion in Crete. Heraklion port has a wider choice: you can also take a ferry from other Greek islands like Santorini, Mykonos or Paros, but you will have to take a longer bus ride to reach your villa. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.

  • Highly Recommend

    on 15/08/2023

    Beautiful location with stunning views of the sea and the mountains. Welcoming local village with lovely places to eat within 20 min walk (overall car advised for exploring the region). Fantastic large, deep pool, well-equipped villa.

    Excellent communication from Giorgos who met us to let us in despite our late arrival time. Very helpful advice & friendliness.

    Overall highly recommended.

  • Loved the villa!

    on 14/08/2022

    We loved the villa. It was well-equipped, super clean and very comfortable. We used the villa as a base to visit beaches and the local towns so a car was a must. There’s so much to see and do within a 45 minute radius. Having the pool is a massive bonus too. We spent many hours messing about and relaxing in it.

  • Fabulous!

    on 01/07/2022

    We have stayed in Vamos several times, but this villa had the best view, the best facilities, a brilliant pool (we are really fussy about a good-sized pool). the area was quiet, and easy to reach, with local bakery and shops. The view was fabulous, sitting on the veranda on an evening drinking local wine, watching the glowing red sunsets over the bay, with a gentle cooling breeze blowing from the sea.

  • Idyllic

    on 27/04/2020

    Idyllic setting with breathtaking views of mountains and sea, peace personified. Private. Helpful host. Great and well equipped house.

  • A really fantastic house!

    on 30/08/2019

    A really fantastic house! Beautiful setting and fantastic view. With all the luxury a person needs (maybe too much). Very friendly owner who comes to pick you up and even provides basic necessities. Moreover, the owner helped us the next day with finding a rental car and getting bread and money. Very sympathetic. The way to the house is difficult to find and at a few places bumpy. A reasonable car is recommended for this road. Swimming pool is fantastic. Village at 20 minutes walking distance. The nearest beach is a 15-minute drive away. If you want a luxury vacation, I would definitely go for this villa! Really enjoy! For young people it is a bit more complicated because the nightlife requires some organization to get there.

  • Exceptional

    on 21/06/2019

    The ambience of the place and its surroundings. The quality of the house and fittings and the incredible views of mountain and sea. Great spacious pool and tranquil surroundings. About 400 meters road could be improved. It's being fixed.
