Vamos

From Kalyves turning towards the south you can make your way to Vamos which is 25 km from Chania. Vamos is the capital of the homonymous countryside whose picturesque scenery is a resort attraction. The large village maintains its noble appearance thanks to the attention and care of the villagers who seem to respect and love their homeland with ecological sensitivity. 

There is a homonymous corporation in Vamos, Vamos Inc., which produces high quality products such as marmalades, petimezi (grape syrup), sweet preserves, olive oil, oil-cheese, pasta, vinegar, tsikoudia (Greek moonshine) but also homemade soap which definitely is worth buying.

Also, under the supervision of the company, a homonymous traditional guesthouse and tavern are in operation which will offer you special moments of relaxation and a chance to unwind far away from the hustle and bustle and stress of the city.

In neighboring Gavalohori you will find a significant Historical and Folklore Museum with a rich Folklore Collection in a well-kept traditional manor. From the village’s Women’s Association you will be provided with first class quality sweet preserves, aromatic herbs, koulourakia (Greek cookies) as well as handwoven materials known as “kopaneli”.
