Overview

About the property

A self- catering fully equipped stone villa with spectacular views

Villa Melitta is a noble house built by George Hatzidakis. He used all his research into traditional architecture and put all his love into the house. The project was finished in 2004. In the middle of a 5000 sq.m fruit grove, rises a small palace, reminding us of a Venetian villa. Melitta is situated just outside of the village of Melidoni, in a quiet environment with a broad and beautiful view of the Tallaia mountains and Psiloritis. There is a wide variety of trees in its huge garden – orange, olive, pear, apple, and peach trees – offering fruits throughout the year. There are also flowers and organically grown vegetables in the backyard of the house. The house covers 250 M2 and there are 5 bedrooms – 2 on the ground floor and 3 on the upper floor – which can accommodate 10 persons, or even 12 if you use the two sofa beds of the sitting room. It has a tasteful interior and there are two verandas on the upper floor, offering you a choice of the view you prefer.

Further Details for The Villa In Rethymno,Crete: The nearest airport of Heraklion (HER) is located 50 km east of the villa, while the port of Rethymnon lies at a distance of 29 km. The airport of Chania (CHQ) is another 90km to the west, that is a 1 hour 30 min drive. A car rental can be arranged to pick you up at the airport and drive you to your villa.

As the owners cooperate with a car rental company you have the opportunity to hire cars in unique prices!!!

The nearest beach of Bali lies at a distance of 6 km, it is sandy and offers many opportunities for water sports. There are also quiet locations for guests to enjoy the beach without being annoyed by nearby jet-skiers or water-skiers. The sandy beach of Panormo offers you a second choice for swimming near the area. There are plenty of beautiful beaches in the area also!

There are some interesting excursions you can go in Kastri, Melidoni and the outskirts. The distances and routes are shown on the map in the web page.

The garden area is 5000 sq.m. Inside the garden there is a kiosk, BBQ area, beautiful plants, fruit trees and many corners to relax. There is also a 50 M2 adult swimming pool and a 12 M2 children’s swimming pool.

The discreet stone wall surrounding the gardens and the cool shade of the house offer privacy and, you will feel that, time passes by at your own pace, offering you a sense of childish happiness.

Lovely villa with a gorgeous pool in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this modern yet traditional villa, with welcoming hosts. It was ideal for an extended family holiday as it had plenty of bathrooms and large seating areas, we all really enjoyed the gorgeous pool and picking oranges for breakfast every morning. The location is ideal, a very short walk to a traditional village for basic supplies and yet private with superb views of the mountains and countryside.

Fantastic stay in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely great: well maintained grounds full of fruit trees (oranges, lemons, grapefruits and others which the kids loved eating/juicing), lovely spacious villa, plenty of options for outdoor cooking and dining, great sized pool, idyllic surroundings, comfortable beds and clean rooms. The owner and his wife met us on our (late) arrival and were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The location is great (once you get your bearings and know which routes to favour). Hyper-locally we visited the local village a number of times, plus the caves, the 'Riptisland' (reptilarium), a local olive oil farm (Paraschkis) and a small winery (Klados, who's wine pleasantly surprised us). Further afield we visited multiple beaches (favouring the beaches of Bali towards the second half of the stay), a larger winery and a water park (Water City) as well as a number of local towns (Margarites was especially nice). Would completely and totally recommend a stay at this villa.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa and grounds exceeded expectations. With ages ranging from nearly 2 to 65 years old, it worked very well for us all. The different outdoor seating options were a real treat. We do not return to the same places as there's so much to explore but with a place this good, we might be breaking that rule!

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 of 5

The position was perfect for us, quiet with wonderful views, just a short drive to the beach. The villa was excellent, clean, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. The garden and swimming pool (heated - nice so early in the year) were lovely. All in all," just what it said on the tin".

Lovely villa in perfect surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Melitta. The villa is large, clean and well decorated and is in a very quiet and peaceful location. The heated pool was warm enough to swim without needing to get out too quickly! Our young grandchildren particularly liked the small pool which was deep enough for them to swim but shallow enough to stand up in. The gardens and grounds are large and well maintained. We loved being able to pick oranges and lemons from the trees and to make fresh juice to drink. The villa is very private and safe. It is a short walk from Melodoni village which is small and very greek but does have two mini markets and a taverna. We had a brilliant time at the villa helped by the fantastic weather. We very much hope to return.
