Très agréable séjour à Xatheri villas

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé quinze jours très agréables en Crête.

La villa est très confortable, très bien entretenue, très bien équipée et dans un environnement calme et reposant.

La propriétaire Rena nous a accueilli très chaleureusement et a été de bons conseils pour découvrir les environs de Vamos.

Nous conseillons la villa pour passer d'agréables vacances en Crête.

Great holiday , great pool, lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Eirini 's house in Vamos. The house is well designed and has good facilities. It is only a short walk to the village with its 2 tavernas, cafes, bakery and small shops. Vamos is well placed to visit other nearby villages such as Almyrida and Gavalachori. There is a good local bus service to Chania if you fancy travelling and leaving the car at home. As with previous reviews , our holiday was made extra special by the care and attention from Eirini. She really made our stay comfortable and gave us some very good local tips of places to visit and tavernas to eat out.

The pool is excellent and the garden very pleasant . Wifi , TV and DVD player good for keeping our teenagers entertained

Would not hesitate to recommend the villa for a family holiday.

Our New Favorite Holiday Destination

  • 5 of 5

Xatheri Villa in Vamos is truly amazing. The house was beautiful and comfortable. We woke up each morning to the sound of chirping birds and sheep bells. The location feels quiet and intimate while being walking distance to shops and restaurants. We travelled with two children aged 6 and 8.

Hiring a car is a must if you want to see the amazing local sights, beaches, and restaurants. The Crete beaches are beautiful, with clear water, and fine sand. We could easily find beaches that were busy and exciting, or quiet and secluded.

The Greek food was wonderful and the restaurant owners were friendly.

After a day of sight seeing or visiting yet another beautiful beach, it was wonderful coming back to the pool and villa of our own.

However, the part of this vacation that really made the difference for us was the owner, Rena. Rena welcomed us as if we were family. She helped us to rent a car, and gave us information about the area. Our flight was cancelled coming into Crete, and Rena went out of her way to ensure everything was organized for us. She recommended places to visit, which were not necessarily tourist locations, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. 

Thank you Rena. Greece is now our favorite holiday destination!

beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully well maintained villa. The pool area is huge with a lovely covered area to sit or eat. The owner, eirini, could not have been more helpful, with advice on places to visit and the most direct way to get there.

The upstairs bedrooms have large balconies one at the front and one at the back so you can catch the sun or shade at any time of the day.

There is also a comprehensive welcome pack with all you could need, even a bottle of wine.

It is just a few minutes walk from the village of Vamos with its tavernas and shops, which is a great place to stroll around. It even has a small tourist office which has all the information about what activities are available, including cookery courses.

We had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this villa.
