THE BEST VILLA RETREAT FOR YOUR HOLIDAY IN CRETE!!
Submitted: October 5, 2010
Stayed: September 2010
The stay at the Villa Melody was simply perfect! This place has all of the amenities that you could ask for. A very comforting place just to relax and enjoy your holiday without all of the noise of a hotel or beach resort. The owners, Yioula & Agis are exceeding nice and let you know all about what the area has to offer in regards to activities and sights to see and will even arrange transportation for you.
The beach is just around the corner and is pretty nice if that's your thing but thats not why we came to Crete. We came to see the sights, history and culture of the island(which there is plenty of).
If your like us, go to
The Samaria Gorge - Excellent hike from the mountains to the sea in the south.
Elafonisi - if you want the best of the beach experience in the south.
Knossos - for the Minoan ruins in the east
Gramvousa in the west (we did not have time to go but well worth the trip according to Yioula).
After you experience one of these long day trips and you arrive back at the Villa Melody, you are in heaven!! Take a nice dip in the private pool or a hop in the Jacuzzi tub with all of the quiteness and relaxation of home. You really do feel your at home!
This was one vacation that my wife and I will never forget. Our expectations were beyond exceeded! Make sure you go over and jam out to the best music on Crete at the Rock House which is right next door. The beauty of it is that you will never hear the noise while sipping Raki or Ouzo in the pool or on your patio. Agis will play anything you want from 11pm-5am. The man is wild! He is a spinning machine!
Thanks Yioula & Agis for sharing your wonderful Villa with us! We hope to see you in the future!!!
Tourists without a Car,

Owner's Response: We are always very glad to welcome such wonderful people to our homes. Thank you both for being such wonderful guests and we do hope to welcome you again in the future and have maybe more time to have some more ouzo together again.
