Located at the foothills of Lefka Ori, the White Mountains, a range in western Crete, Vamos is a village only 25 km from Chania, at a semi-mountainous altitude of 300 metres. The village is surrounded by farmland and wild nature buzzing with life.

The architectural heritage is well-preserved and Vamos is one of the most attractive traditional destinations of the area: a preserved traditional stone road, the old neighbourhood, well painted Chapels of Virgin Mary (monument of 13th century), and Karidi Monastery 13th-19th, with the most spectacular scenery of an old olive press with 12 arches.


Entering the farm is like entering a small paradise that has everything the visitor needs to feed its senses and feel the peace and serenity nature offers. The farm consists of beautiful, welcoming, stone-built houses, in perfect harmony with the traditional architecture of the area.
The houses are surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, oak trees, fruit trees, flowers and various aromatic plants. There is a stone-built amphitheater where various events and ecotourism activities are organized. The farm hosts domestic animals such as hens, turkeys, guinea fowls, lambs, rabbits where they maintain the harmonious balance in the cycle of nature. Seasonal vegetables are grown in the vegetable garden using sustainable cultivation methods (permaculture).


Inspired by the rich Cretan Flora, each guesthouse has been given a name of an aromatic plant. The fruit-bearing trees and the aromatic plants are filling the scenery with smells and colors, which you can enjoy at the Romantic corner, under the oaks surrounded by the stream.
