We had the most perfect holiday. The house was beautiful and everything from the bed to the decoration and the outside furniture was just right for the simple and unfussy experience we wanted. The pool was excellent and the huge view across the valley of olive groves to the spectacular mountains was breathtaking. Out hosts were incredibly kind and thoughtful and generous and we felt more like personal guests than tourists. They met us at the nearest town to show us the way to the property. The local area is perfect, Vamos is 10 mins drive away along a dirt track and then small road and has a really good family run restaurant with exceptionally good food. We were very happy here.

What an amazing experience ! So calm, in the middle if nowhere, the pool was very welcome as it was a little bit hot in the house. View is amazing, John was always available to respond our questions, the fan didnt work propely, so the day after a new one was in front of our house. We met him, he is a very nice person to discuss with, I would go back there any time ! Tip : do leave any kind of food on the counter, you will find so many ants. Thanks !!

Our initial impression was not so good. The directions to get to the property were not clear and therefore we were lost trying to find it for 30 minutes. On the other hand, Mikela was very helpful and patient in directing us on our way, even at the late hour. There was some confusion about whether or not they had our booking, but in the end, all was set straight. Prior to our trip, we arranged for a baby crib to be made available upon check in. When we arrived, there was no crib and one could not be arranged for the first night. It was a sleepless night, to say the least. Mikela arranged for the housekeeper to bring the crib as quickly as possible (the next day). From there, the vacation was great! During the day, the property is stunning! A nice cool pool overlooking snow-capped mountains, beautiful lawn and flowers, and olive orchards. The villa was a historical building (200-300 years old) with a rustic look and feel, but with touches of luxury. Mikela provided some locally baked treats one morning, which was a nice touch. The kitchen is small, but fully equipped and provided as much as we needed. The BBQ is also very small, but with 3 of them together, we had a nice cook-out by the pool on evening. The weather was extremely hot while we were there (90-105 degrees F, 30-40 degrees C). The villa has no air conditioning, so this made the time spent in the room unbearable, especially at night. The one fan did not do the trick for our family of 4. The proprietor told us that the archaeological ministry will not allow installation of air conditioning in such a historical building. The property is listed as child-friendly. This is simply not the case. There are tons of stairs and no gates. Also, all of the beds are upstairs. Ants were a problem, walking freely through and feasting upon our trash and food pantry. Mikela was always very flexible and friendly. She even allowed us to have a late checkout on our final day. This earned an extra star for our review. All in all, it is hard to be discontent in such a beautiful place. We would definitely come back, albeit without children and in a cooler time of year.

It's an amazing house, part of 4 holiday houses in the middle of nowhere, with great views! The house is not so easy to find, on a dirt road in Vamos, but that's the great part of it... It's a lovely, quiet, getaway spot with an amazing pool! The house was clean, good beds, great shower, everything you need to cook, ... Mikela had provided lots of things for breakfast, very nice!

Vassiliki house is the perfect place for a quiet holiday in Greece. Location home exceeded our wildest expectations. It is set on a hill with spectacular views of the mountains and olive groves, and in the evening at the starry sky. Around you hear only the cicadas and the bells of sheep. Swimming offers nice to spend the whole day there, even during the great heat. A small but comfortable and equipped with the essentials kitchen allows you to prepare your meals. It's a good starting point for trips to Rethymnon and Chania as well as the most beautiful beaches of western Crete. In a walking distance there is the nice village of Vamos, which offers everything you need - tavernas with great food, shops, post office, pharmacy or health center. Hostess is very kind and charming person. She took care of us in every situation! It was a very nice time and beautiful holidays. Thank you Mikela! :)
