Houses Vatos

Two houses in the traditional mountain village of Vatos

The traditional mountain village of Vatos is located on the road leading from Kissou-Kambos via the 880m high pass through the village of Kerames down to the Libyan Sea. You can reach Vatos, which is only about 40 inhabitants, if you follow the signposted junction in Kissou-Kambos. Kissou-Cambos is located five kilometers south of Spili towards Agia Galini. At the crossroads, follow the signs to the village of Kerames. The journey goes over a small mountain road, which circles around the rim of Assiderotos on its north-western flank. You pass the picturesque mountain village of Aktounda before you reach Vatos.

In the midst of Cretan countryside, quietly and idyllically located only 20m from the village square, Michalis has renovated the two houses "Maria" & "Taria" and lovingly decorated with many old craftsmanship. Here in the traditional village, the guests can spend their holidays under Cretans. The beach of Ligres is 12km by car, or the larger Triopetra Beach is 15km away. Spili with its shops, post office and bank is only 10km away.

A holiday in the village of Vatos is ideal for guests who want to go on a beach holiday, or perhaps even hike or explore the island of Crete with its many sights. Because here the guests are quiet and yet quite central, since Rethymnon on the north coast or Mires in the Messara are relatively easy to reach. Ideal for two families who want to spend their holidays together, but still separated from the common courtyard. 

The larger of the house names "Maria", with about 100 square meters of living space, can accommodate about 5 people.
