VILLA ARETHOUSA LUXURIOUS,OWN PRIVATE POOL & SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Rethymno Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms , 6 bathrooms 2-12 people can be accommodated.

This house invites you to enjoy its elegance and nobility and to share with it the gifts of the beautiful garden and the sense of the tranquility. On leaving the house, you will feel emotionally and mentally richer. Arethousa proves that a house is not only a place to live in, but can also change your senses and make your spirit gentle and sweet. It is one of the noble houses of Melidoni, a village rich in architecture and history. It is construction to be preserved, according to the Greek Ministry of Culture, and was restored in the 2005 under its supervision. It was the owner’s Christina Hatzidakis’, birthplace, built 200 years ago and its decoration bears her sensitivity and taste. It is a house that gives you a feeling of love.

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 mins drive. A car rental can be arranged to pick you up at the airport and drive you to your villa. Perama is at a distance of 3 km and the traditional village of Panormo with the beautiful restaurants near the sea is at a distance of 9 km/10 mins drive!

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 webpage.

The gardens area is 2000 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 sq.m adult swimming pool and a 12 sq.m children’s swimming pool which can also function as a hydro massage, providing you with serenity.

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 your swim near the area. There are plenty of beautiful beaches in the area also!

Annual Family Vacation

We are a family of 12 from 3 different countries and include 3 young children. Arethousa was excellent. The property was clean, well maintained and as described in the listing. The kitchen was supplied with adequate equipment, dishes, pots, etc. as were the bathrooms. The BBQ and outside dining was great. Local stores and a restaurant were within a short walk. The villagers were friendly and helpful and enough spoke English so communication was not a problem.The kiddie pool was a plus since the 4 year old cannot swim. On the minus side, the beds were too firm for some and there was just enough flatware for our group. There were a couple of minor repairs needed when we arrived but the owners were very responsive in correcting them. All and all we were very pleased and would go back again.

The house is homely, traditional but restored with love and care and with all the amenities to make you want to go to your "home' on Crete and take a dip in the pool before starting the barbecue.ideal even for for a big family with the extra little house in the lovely garden.

Heaven in Crete

Villa Arethousa is superb. The house is absolutely beautiful and even better than the pictures or YouTube video. This 200 year old family home was restored by an architect, family member who added elegant yet personal touches throughout. The pool area was gorgeous and the refrigerator was even stocked with the basics for our arrival.

The house is in the beautiful small village of Melidoni and is centrally located on the island of Crete. The restaurants in the town are quite good and the people of the town were very friendly to us. It felt like home.

Several in our group, including myself, work for a major airline and travel extensively. This property was a refreshing change from the same old, same old, and we are planning on staying there again.

A wonderful place to stay!

We can't recommend this villa highly enough! The villa was very well appointed, of high quality and extremely clean. It is probably the best villa we have stayed in and we have visited quite a few.You do need a car to get around but you benefit from a wonderfully peaceful villa. We enjoyed relaxing out by the pool watching the swifts fly by and skim the top of the water. The pool area and garden is very private. We made use of the pizza oven and the bbq and also produce from the vegetable garden and oranges and lemons from the trees. The welcome pack of food and drink was very nice as was the cupboard of herbs and spices. Its a short walk into the village where there are a couple of little supermarkets and bars and a taverna. The villagers are very friendly and we joined in with a local event in the village square. We especially enjoyed a restaurant near the Melidoni caves where we had good food and special attention for a birthday meal we planned with them. Antonis Hatzidakis was very friendly and visited on a couple occasions sorting out any issues efficiently. I will certainly be recommending the property to my freinds and family.

Car: necessary

Melidoni the village in which is Villa Arethousa is a beautifull traditional village in the centre of Crete! If you ever feel like leaving the house to discover the village, you will find out that Melidoni has a lovely community with friendly people, an active culture society with festivals and other local social events that take place during the summer. There is also a tavern, a mini market, first aid and traditional cafe’s. Perama is just 3 km away for shopping and other services (banks, post office, chemist’s, health centre, etc.). The beach is 6 km away and therefore a car is essential.

For any further information, the owners of the Villa Melidoni are at your disposal.
