About the Location

The villa is in Melidoni, a village near Panormo, Rethymno on the north coast of Crete. It is 4km from the coast and close to main highways to reach the rest of the island. The village has a petrol station, supermarket, kiosks, small regional cafés and local restaurants where you can taste Cretan cuisine. It is a good base for discovering the varied countryside and nearby cities and beaches. The island’s airport and ferry port is a 1-hour drive away in Heraklion - airport pick-up available for an extra fee.

The 5 bedrooms, all have super kingsize beds that can be alternately arranged as twin beds, or a double bed. Three bedrooms have private bathrooms while 2 share a bathroom with Jacuzzi tub.

Style Notes

Bright, modern and Greek. The villa is 210sqm and is filled with light. Picture windows offer fantastic views of the grounds and surrounding landscape. Traditional Greek colors show through - sky blue walls and white in the dining area, and natural olive greens in one of the bedrooms. It is elegant and sophisticated throughout, while retaining an air of fun. We love the BBQ area on the terrace, with its wood fired oven and shaded dining area, and the grand, cool and spacious living room with high ceilings and vast corner sofa.

Crete, Greek Islands

Ruins, rocky outcrops and rural charm

Off the southern coast of mainland Greece, beautiful Crete is the largest of the islands, packed with rural charm, archeological sites and fabulous mountains - a land where shepherds still tend their flocks wearing traditional dress. Blow the kids’ minds at the enormous Samariá Gorge, tantalize them with tales of ancient civilization, and check out the cave where Zeus was said to have been born.
