This villa is the last house at the edge of Melidoni, a traditional mountainous village with a mini-market, bakery, and one taverna open in the summer. About 3 km from the village you can explore Melidoni Cave, used for cult worship during the Neolithic, Minoan, and Archaic periods. More facilities, such as tavernas, markets, banks, and shops can be found in nearby Perama. Local attractions include the beach at Bali, Margarita (a picturesque village with pottery workshops), and the fishing village of Panormo. Then of course there is the city of Rethymnon, the capital of the province. Here you can find ferry connections to mainland Greece, as well as a unique and picturesque Old Town featuring narrow streets, Venetian palaces, and Turkish minarets. There are countless other sights to see in town, including a Venetian Fortezza (where an annual renaissance festival is held), the harbour, and a fine sandy beach-- the longest in Crete, stretching for several kilometers! You'll also enjoy the local tavernas, cafes, and restaurants. If you’re interested in the history of the island you can step into the Historical and Folk Art Museum for a taste of traditional Cretan ceramics, textiles, artifacts, jewelry, and clothing from across the centuries.
