On the edge of perhaps the most delightful village in Crete, this villa is the perfect family villa to unwind and immerse yourself in the spirit and traditions of Vamos.
This 100-year-old stone house has been carefully renovated to create a home combining traditional Cretan features with modern comforts. The interiors are cool and spacious with two en-suite bedrooms, and a raised galleried bedroom overlooking the living area. The open-plan living area and kitchen area lead out to a large terrace by a private swimming pool surrounded by olive groves; the perfect spot to while away the day, where the only sounds likely to be heard is the buzz of the cicadas and possibly a passing shepherd. To the rear of Stathis, a pretty courtyard with a sheltered dining area is an excellent spot for an evening’s barbecue.
Within walking distance of Vamos and a couple of tavernas offering fresh organic Cretan dishes, the villa boasts an ideal location – situated on the doorstep of the magnificent White Mountains to discover the true Crete. The sandy beaches of Kalyves and Almeritha are just 10 minutes by car and for those seeking a little more sophistication, beautiful Chania is just 45 minutes away.
