Client Reviews for Old Bakery

We loved The Old Bakery- it's possibly the best property we have stayed in of many in the Greek Islands, both accommodation and location wise. It was great being in a quiet village location, yet we could walk to the lively village square and excellent tavernas, whilst being only 10 minutes drive from the nearest beach. Vamos is in a beautiful area of Crete.

Really appreciated the help over the phone from one of your staff when i was hesitating between 2 properties. She knew both houses and the areas well and had good recommendations. The house was very clean and we appreciated that a cleaner came in the middle of the week as well as at the end of our stay. The only thing missing that I forgot to ask about but should have been mentioned is that there was no dishwasher. Overall it was a very good holiday in a charming house!

It would have been nice to meet the owner of the property. It had such interesting features and character, we would like to have known some of the history of the house.

We've used Vintage travel on a number of occaisions over the years and have always been very happy with the arrangements made for us. Vintage are the first port of call when looking for villas abroad.

The Old Bakery is a beautiful property and Vamos a lovely village. The olive trees in the pool area provided welcome shade in the afternoon, and the covered barbecue area is a real asset. Wifi was a bonus - we nearly didn't book The Old Bakery because the website did not mention it is available. A very good

This is the second time we have used Vintage Travel. We went to Corfu last September and found you on the Internet with a search for villas with pools. On this occasion I am changing jobs and so had a few weeks leave. We hadn't booked anything and I just kept an eye on your website for a "good deal" / special offer. I was confident to do this because I was impressed by the quality of your service last year. Especially the knowledge and advice we received from your telephone advisers. We had an excellent holiday. The quality of the property was (as expected) excellent. The "Old Bakery" in Vamos was extremely well furnished and equipped. Vamos is a good town to visit and a bit off the beaten track with the local Tourist Office being top notch. We are very likely to look to Vintage again.

Villa and gardens beautiful. The welcome items were good. The Old Bakery is a beautiful villa in a great location. The garden is well thought out and private with a large covered area where we ate which also includes a built in barbecue. There are three local beaches that range from highly developed with a range of watersports to virtually deserted (at least during our stay). There are two tavernas in Vamos in easy walking distance that serve great Greek and Cretan food. The bakery in Vamos sells some fantastic bread and it is a great pleasure picking up warm bread first thing in the morning for breakfast. The pastry shop should be avoided if you want to maintain your waistline - the baklava is just too good. Chania and Rethymno are both within easy striking distance and well worth a visit with a lot of local history - and we can recommend the restaurant Avli in Rethymno.

Had a very relaxing week in this charming villa. It was very clean and seemed to have everything we wanted. The wooden beams and the oldy worldy bakery made us feel at home at once. We cooked, ate and chilled many nights by the pool. It was peaceful and enjoyed by the whole family.

I can't really remember how I first heard of you, it was so long ago! But I think it was a recommendation from a friend. The main thing that stands out for me about Vintage is the quality control. You know you're going to get a first class property. I've never been disappointed, unlike with other villa holiday companies. The other thing is your staff. They are always very knowledgeable and friendly. So often they know the individual properties or can pass you to a colleague who does. This is so impressive. Because we are confident independent travellers it's nice not to be patronised or imposed upon. The fact that we saw no one at or property during the week was very welcome, and fine because everything was just so. The property itself was lovely and lived up to my expectations. It was not cheap, but I would still say it was good value for money overall. The information about it and the location was very clear and in no way deceptive or exaggerated. This, along with the knowledge of your staff, all adds to the confidence one can have in Vintage for the future and recommending to others. When exchanging holiday experiences recently with a colleague at work we were surprised and amused to find, after talking about what was important to us on holiday and where we liked to go, that we were both loyal and satisfied Vintage customers! So thanks very much and best wishes for the future, particularly in these difficult times.
