Vamos is a small Cretan village about 5 miles from the sea. In the friendly small tourist office, you can rent cottages with or without a pool. See at www.vamossa.gr
There are some shops, places to eat and we like to see the local life at the village square. There is a bus connection to Chania, but I recommend to rent a car.
We had a wonderful time and felt in love with the place.
