The village of Vamos and the monastery in Karydi in Crete
Vamos, Crete, Kreta Vamos, Crete, Kreta Vamos, Crete, Kreta Vamos, Crete, Kreta
Vamos, Crete, Kreta Vamos, Crete, Kreta Vamos, Crete, Kreta Vamos, Crete, Kreta

Nederlands Map of Crete Vamos is the capital of the district and one of the larger villages in the Apokoronas area. There are mini markets, tavernas and all kinds of local shops. There is a large church in the village and plenty of pretty and old trees. In 1995 a group of villagers started a project to preserve the traditional way of life of Vamos. With funds from the European Union, they started a project to showcase the crafts and products of the region and restored old stone buildings using traditional materials and crafts and turned them into guest houses. Vamos is a very important village of the Apokoronas as it was the capital of the region. The village is 30km away from Chania. In the village you can find many taverns and shops.

The Monastery of Agios Georgios can be found in Karydi, between Vamos and Vrysses, in the Apokoronas area. It was abandoned in 1905 and nowadays it's being restored. In 1996 it was reopened. The monastery was first mentioned in documents from 1600AD as a small settlement in Karydi and it was destroyed in the Turkish war.

Accommodations, hotels, apartments, studios and villa's in and around Gavalochori on Crete

There are some options if you are looking for accommodation in and around the traditional village of Vamos. In the area there are a lot villas for rent and therefore it attracts mainly abit "better" crowd (I mean: no young people that go from pub to pub) and also families with children and groups of friends that rent a house. My friend Frankie Miles rents numerous villas in and around Vamos and in the area of the Apokoronas (see below for her phone number and e-mail address). You can also send her an e-mail with your wishes.

This beautiful and large villa is situated on a quiet road in the village of Almyrida on walking distance from all the taverns, supermarkets, ATM machine, pharmacy, the (very good) bakery and all the other amenities that this lovely village has to offer (not forgetting the good sandy beaches here). This makes it ideally situated: away from noise but close to everything. The villa has different sitting areas on the outside (you can choose for sun or shade) where you can rela and enjoy a breakfast, a coffee or a drink while you look out over the village of Almyrida, the bay of Souda and the island of Karga. In the distance you can see the planes take off and land on the airport of Chania, which is situated on the opposite Akrotiri peninsula. There is a 40 m2 large private pool with sunbeds (with soft covers if you like) which is in the sun almost day, so water temperatures are good. Net to the villa at the gate there is a parking place for your car.

This lovely intimate villa is situated on a hill near the seaside resort of Almirida. We stayed here in September 2008 and we absolutely loved it. It was cosy and comfortable and the views from the terraces and the pool were fantastic. The villa had everything you could wish for: amazing views from the terraces and the pool, a beautiful bathroom, a living space with comfortable couches, a dining table and chairs and three bedrooms with etra large etra comfortable beds with loads of pillows. The beds were over two meters long because I could fit in without any problems and without my feet sticking out (yes people, I am a tall, tall guy). I loved this place because it felt so homely and everybody was feeling so happy in it. It makes you want to buy your own villa on the island.

Villa Giorgos in Gavalochori - A house with 3 bedrooms in a pine tree forest
Villa Giorgos, Villa in Crete, Gavalochori, Kreta Villa Giorgos, Villa in Crete, Gavalochori, Kreta Villa Giorgos, Villa in Crete, Gavalochori, Kreta Villa Giorgos, Villa in Crete, Gavalochori, Kreta

Villa Giorgos is set in a very secluded spot in the middle of a pine tree forest. The villa is situated on the outskirts of Gavalochori and close to the coastal resort of Almyrida. In both villages you can find good taverns, super markets and a bakery. Especially the pastries of the bakery in Almyrida are worth a detour! Villa Giorgos is situated on a hill at the end of short dirt track. The villa has several verandas with a splendid view of the forest that surrounds it and there are distant views of the sea in front of Almyrida (Souda Bay). It's very, very quiet. Behind the villa is the private pool with the sunbeds and the parasols, chairs and tables, a swing and a barbecue. The pool is surrounded by a low wall and pine trees and is not overlooked, so we skinny dipped.

Villa Azure - Kera Beach - pretty villa with a large pool and fabulous view
Villa Azure, Kera Beach, Almirida, Kreta Villa Azure, Kera Beach, Almirida, Kreta Villa Azure, Kera Beach, Almirida, Kreta Villa Azure, Kera Beach, Almirida, Kreta

Villa Azure can accommodate up to 10 people and it is probably one of the most private villas in the whole of the Apokoronas area. You have no immediate neighbours and it is very quiet: no people, no dogs barking and no traffic. Because of its location on the hill and the trees that are in front of the villa there is a lot of privacy, so it is also suitable for people who prefer to go into the pool without swimwear. Villa Azure is a beautiful large villa of approximately 250m2 where you can relax, listen to the birds, watch the passing boats in Souda Bay and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine in your hand.

In 2015 we spent a few days in this villa. It is near the small quiet sandy beaches of Kera and within walking distance of the village of Almirida with all its shops, mini-markets and many taverns. The villa has a lovely pool, which is pretty private. Behind Villa Nina is another villa, but this one has the pool on the other side so there is a lot privacy. We took our dips without swimwear. From the street side the villa is not overlooked at all. There are lovely terraces and places where you can sit down to read a book or stare out over the sea. THE WIFI was absolutely great worked everywhere.
