“Beautiful and luxurious”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Visually stunning, luxurious, and highly spec'd villa with high tech and everything provided for your comfort. The level of technology provided (wifi, large screen TVs in every room and in inside and outside sitting room areas, games machine, tablet computer, local mobile phone and CCTV security) seemed like overkill to me, but delighted the rest of my party.

The villa has a boutique hotel feel, with each room beautifully decorated and highly appointed. The pool is modestly sized but lovely and with a comfortable outdoor four poster bed for luxurious sunbathing (there's another 4 poster in one of the rooms inside).

I doubt that there's a better appointed villa in Vamos, which is a pretty, traditional rural Cretan village. There's a good range of tavernas and cafes nearby, and a range of activities arranged by the tourist office in the village.

We bought fresh pastries and bread in the village bakery daily and used Vamos as a base for exploring the local area, including Chania and Rethymno by car.

The sheer range and level of tech provided in the villa seemed like overkill to me, and a bit of a distraction from the peace and tranquility of the village, though it definitely kept everyone in our party amused and happy.

We enjoyed the seclusion of the private courtyard by day, great views of the sunset over the Cretan hills from the balcony in the evening, and the feeling that we were getting a taste of Cretan village life, without sacrificing at all our creature comforts.

Highly recommend this villa for a luxury stay in Vamos, and this location for a taste of real Crete.
