Imaginatively renovated and bursting with authentic Cretan character this simply styled hideaway was originally built for a Turkish pasha as a this propertyover two hundred years ago. Situated off a sleepy side lane at the top of Vamos village and fringed by cultivated greenery which enhances privacy this charming village house also has attractive mountain and distant sea views from the upper balcony.

Adhering to strict guidelines from the Cretan 'National Trust', the original stone arches on the ground floor have been incorporated into a simply styled living, dining and kitchen area creating a unique atmosphere that conjures up the relaxing character of the this propertywhilst still providing a practical space in which to relax. A compact kitchen is perfectly adequate for light meals and the barbecue provides options for al fresco dining.

Traditional décor including solid Cretan sofas and sturdy cross beams creates an authentic mood while, fascinatingly, the original this propertypart of the property has now been remodelled into an atmospheric shower room, a lack of large windows on the ground floor reflecting the pasha's need for discretion whilst bathing.

Wooden stairs lead up to the double bedroom with French doors onto a good size terrace offering far-reaching views across the red ceramic rooftops of Vamos to the surrounding countryside, distant mountains and glittering sea of Souda Bay.

The elevated swimming pool and terrace overlook an olive grove to one side with tall palm trees puncturing the skyline, the whitewashed rendered exterior of the house a striking contrast to the vivid blue sky and lush vegetation. A wonderful pergola completely shrouded in ivy and climbing plants provides a cool, shady arbour for midday lunches with the barbecue alongside promising tasty al fresco meals under the clear night sky.

Undoubtedly, the key feature of this propertyHouse is that within a two minute walk you are in the heart of Vamos yet, being on a quiet lane at the top of the village the house remains extremely calm and peaceful - shops, tavernas, cafes and bars all easily to hand yet never perceived from the pool or balcony.

Surrounding the property the faded elegance of deserted houses brings a peaceful ambience, their empty shells lending a unique and timeless quality to the environs. Around Vamos lovingly restored neo-classical nineteenth century houses line the roads and the main square has a cheerful bustle with Kafenions offering Greek coffees and lazy games of backgammon while the locals go about their business between the shops, mini-markets, post office and tavernas.

Leaving this calm retreat you will find the magnificent sandy beaches of Almyrida and Blue Flagged Kalives (7km & 11km away respectively), easy to reach by bus or car, whilst Chania has a tremendously picturesque harbour to wander around and plenty of tiny side streets to explore.
