While we wish we could say "it's terrible" so we can keep it to ourselves, in truth the Arosmari Cottages in Vamos, Crete, are fantastic - truly a "retreat" and an oasis of peace away from hectic lives back at home !

This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. It's adults only, which is great for anyone wanting a really peaceful holiday. The resort is a collection of 10 cottages clustered on the edge of Vamos, a quiet village about 10 minutes drive from the coast. The cottages have been beautifully and thoughtfully restored by the owner, Nicos. The pool...

A wonderful place to stay. We loved the village with its old buildings and views of the mountains. A working Cretan village managing tourism sustainably. The Arosmari was a peaceful haven of old cottages and a beautiful garden and pool. The owner Nikos has incorporated historical elements and items into the garden. Trish was a friendly and helpful hostess and...

Firstly, this is an adults only place this season - and how perfect it is. We have just come back having enjoyed two weeks of total rest and relaxation. The setting, buildings, garden and pool are beautiful, then the warm hospitality and true attention to detail tops it off (comfy chairs suddenly appearing in our favourite spot, a backgammon board...
