Excellent place, great hospitality, i couldn't ask for more!! The place is very beautiful, clean and quiet. For those you look for privacy is ideal. The pool isn't very big but it's ok Going again for sure next year!!

Vamos is the ideal location for exploring the West part of Crete. Between Rethymnon and Chania, we rented a small house in this lovely, quiet but living village close to the sea and the White Mountains. We enjoy the welcome of the team of Vamos Traditionnal Village. They organise our arrival in Vamos, help us to prepare our walk, our... More

Since years I was thinking about a quiet little place in an authentic village on Crete - to recover from a quite intense business life with lots of travel. Thats what we found at Vamos: Aggelamos II, a mid 19th century building, downtown with little taverns, a real bakery, a mini market to get my Feta for breakfast, ... Warm... More

We rented Milo Petra - the Mill House in Douliana via these ladies. The service we received from them was excellent. The property itself was idyllic. Spotlessly clean with a great welcome pack including chocolate cake!! Konstantina the owner lives opposite and even provided us with a great bottle of red when she saw us sitting out one evening. We... More

We loved our stay (April 2014) .The accommodation was very comfortable and the view of the white mountains magnificent.We stayed for 6 nights which gave us plenty of time to explore the surrounding area on foot and by car. Crete is a wonderful holiday destination ...we hope to return

This is a really unique place to visit and stay for a few nights. It's the perfect non touristy, serene place to clear your head and switch off. The customer service is one of the friendliest I have experienced and the house that we stayed was beautiful. We also did the cooking class with Mrs Koula which I highly recommend.

I concur with all that has been written about this accomodation,the view,the sheet change after 2 nights!!the office staff,the village...and even the kitten which very nearly came back to Ag Nik with us. As it was Christmas we had fairy lights and a roaring fire and plenty of warmth from the central heating,not the best ever weather and as I... More

We had read about Vamos in a guidebook on Crete while on a self-drive holiday. As it was mid November, we arrived with no reservation but were given the choice of three of the many homes/villas that they have for rent. All were very nice and we chose "Aggelomnos" a two level home with a kitchen,living room and balcony on... More

After signing up for a traditional Cretan cooking class in Vamos, we realized we had not yet made lodging arrangements. Fortunately, the staff at Vamos Village offered an apartment and we accepted. From the second story balcony, I captured the waking village with video. The tinkling of bells attached to the sheep and goats roaming the grove below was very... More

A very nice house with a beautiful view on the white mountains and the village below. From the first beginning we felt familiar, it was our first stay in a little Greek village away from the beach and it was a big success. We really enjoyed the two weeks and plan to come again.
