Vamos Traditional Village is a small local company specialising in holidays with a difference that focus on the cultural aspects of the Vamos area and which promote ethical sustainable ecotourism and agro-tourism.

Many Vamos' guests range from individual travelers, families and small groups of friends, who share similar values to our own and who enjoy the benefits that responsible low-impact tourism can bring to the area and the local community.

We are located in the old quarter of Vamos, the heart of the Apokoronou region of Crete, surrounded by many historically-rich buildings that were once the dwellings and houses of earlier inhabitants. Many of these traditional homes have been restored and are now offered as holiday rental accommodation. Vamos Traditional Village tourist agency has an exclusive selection of traditional guest houses, villas and cottages available for your holiday in Crete.

More about Vamos Traditional Villas

During your stay in our beautiful village, you will be guested in one of the aesthetically renovated old houses, spreading out mainly in the old neighborhood.

Buildings from 18th, 19th and early 20th century have been sympathetically restored paying particular attention to their individual architecture, the aesthetics of the house and the local environment. Materials used for restoration are mainly stone and cypress wood and the plaster is made using the special techniques of local builders. Furnishings and decoration are also of local handicrafts.

However, bathrooms and kitchens have been adapted to take into account modern day requirements. The houses are spread out in the old neighbourhood of the village with views of the White Mountain and flowering gardens or the Lybian sea.

Vamos is also only a short distance from the northern beaches of the Cretan Sea, which guarantees visitors the chance to combine a beach and mountain village holiday. The village's location, traditional environment and dramatic scenery have all helped us to create a unique atmosphere for guests wanting a relaxing holiday in an authentic Cretan locality.
