Our home

My beautiful house has been lovingly and tastefully restored within the traditional village and community of Vamos. It is located in a quiet road in the old village, just 1 minute walk to the village square with all it's activity- The bakery, the stores, bank, cafes and some of the best tavernas for miles. There are several beaches within 15 minutes drive.
The city of Chania is just 35 minutes away as is Chania airport.

Who we are

  1. I am mother to three adult children. I am a trained nurse, and more recently a personal travel advisor and own properties in Vamos, Crete, Greek Islands and also La Gomera, Canary Islands. My family has enjoyed the natural beauty of the areas in which my homes are located, and now, I would quite like it for other people and families to experience the same pleasure. I have never exchanged a property before, but I am looking forward to the experience. Dates can be flexible.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The village of Vamos is set against the spectacular backdrop of the White Mountains. Shepherds still herd their sheep along the flag-stoned lanes and russet-haired goats amble between the olives. Vamos is a small slice of old Crete infused with the values of traditional hospitality. The village is famous for its local crafts and organic produce: including thyme honey, pickles, jams, cheeses and olive oil soap. It also has a local bakery, a 19th Century kafenion and traditional tavernas where mouth-watering Cretan specialities, such as chicken in red wine, cuttlefish and fennel, artichokes or chickpea puree are cooked in stone ovens and served with some of the island's best wine. In low season, log fires create a wonderful evening atmosphere and in summer, large plane trees provide welcome shade. For those who want to explore authentic Cretan food a little further, local cookery courses are available. The village is also the starting point for walking tours of the surrounding countryside.
