A great base to discover the varied countryside and the nearby cities and beaches. Also, Melidoni Cave, just 2 Kms away is worth visiting! Just 10 minutes away from Panormos sandy beaches!

We are just back from a fabulous holiday in this villa. The owners are so welcoming and attentive, providing a lovely meal for our first night and bringing us a lovely cake during our stay. The villa is perfectly placed sitting right on the edge of the village which means you can walk in to collect your daily provisions from the little local supermarkets and also enjoy a lovely meal in the local taverna without having to drive anywhere!
The villa has superb facilities including a little gym, table football and table tennis table plus a wonderful pool and outside cooking area.. We would highly recommend this villa and hope to return ourselves one day very soon.
Thank you for a great holiday!

Fantastic villa in great location
Wonderful relaxing holiday in an immaculate villa offering wonderful views away from tourist areas, near a small village with happy friendly people.
Dear Barbara, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
A stunning villa in a stunning location.
A lovely presented villa with everything you could wish for situated just far enough out of the village so it feels private but still close enough to walk in where you will be greeted by the friendly locals. The owners are extremely welcoming and are always going the extra mile to make sure your stay is enjoyed by all. Can not recommend this villa highly enough. Thank you for our stay.
Dear William, thank you so much for recommending our villa to other travellers and we hope to have you back soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Wonderful family holiday!
It is hard to find words to sum up just how beautiful this villa is. We were a large family group - parents, three grown up children and partners and our 20 month old grandson. The property is very spacious with plenty of bathrooms, balconies and seating areas outside so everyone can get a bit of peace and quiet when needed. The pool area is fabulous and we really enjoyed all being together, swimming, playing games, eating in the bbq area, playing table tennis etc. The grassy area, outdoor toys and small children’s pool were perfect for our grandson.
All communication before the trip was spot on and our hosts were there to meet us, despite a delayed flight which meant we arrived late at night. There was a delicious pasta meal and bottle of wine waiting for us which was much appreciated.
The villa is very clean. The pool was cleaned first thing every morning before we woke and mid week cleaners came in to clean and change bedding and towels.
Melidoni is a small village and we enjoyed the very pretty taverna, Carob and Olive, so much we went three times! Other trips to Rethymno and Margarites were much enjoyed and locally Melidoni cave and Reptisland are definitely worth a visit. But most of all, we enjoyed our time at the villa. A week of precious family memories were made that will not be forgotten. Thank you!
Dear Pam , thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Fantastic villa in superb location!
Fantastic villa, very clean and more than big enough for our 2 families. The owner made us feel very welcome upon arrival and left a lovely home cooked meal and welcome basket which was a lovely touch and not something we have experienced at any other villa. The villa is cleaned twice a week and at each visit the owner left us another delicious home cooked treat!
The location was perfect for us. Just a short 5min stroll into a local village with a shop and a fantastic restaurant, Dili Dili, where again we were made to feel very welcome and had more traditional Greek food cooked for us! The local Repti Island which is only a 10min walk from the villa is a must, our kids loved it and we made a couple of visits during our stay and they say it was the highlight of their holiday. There is a small shop which stocks the essentials in the village , a larger supermarket about 10mins drive away and a Lidl in Rethymno which is approx 30mims drive. Lovely beach with water sports and restaurants, boat trips etc in Rethymno and a smaller, much quieter beach only 15mins drive away. All in all we had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend this villa for families and groups. We will definitely be returning as we have yet to find anywhere to meet all our expectations and this has certainly succeeded!
Dear Amber, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Early season family getaway
We had a brilliant time at Alonia Villa for ten days in early April - made extra special by the villa owners who made lots of extra touches to make our stay memorable and stress free with the baby (beautiful food gifts, new high chair, new cot, cot linen, baby bath etc). Our party (three grandparents, my husband, 5 yo, 9 mo and me -mum) really enjoyed a beautiful secluded villa with tonnes of space for us all. The villa is very well catered, super clean (brand new feel to it) with plenty of hidey holes for folk to escape with a book and a G&T. The garden is stunning and fabulous to explore, outdoor eating space is terrific too.
The pool is immaculate and although chilly to get into initially we made good use of it for this early in the season. Lovely little taverna in v easy walking and pram distance in the village and an easy drive to the nearby town Perama - more tavernas, supermarkets etc.
Thoroughly enjoyable holidayand we will hopefully return soon. Thanks to the family for their kindness especially.
Dear Nysia , we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Melidoni is a village near Panormo, which lies on the south coast and still close enough to main highways to reach a wide range of destinations.
The village has a mini market, a regional cafe and a local restaurant where you can taste the unique cretan cuisine, all within 200 meters walking distance. A great base to discover the varied countryside and the nearby cities and beaches.
A visit is the nearby Melidoni Cave (2 minutes away by car) is worth making due to the archeological findings, some of which are exhibited in the Archeological Museum of Rethymnon. Moreover, the cave has played a tragic role in the history of Cretan revolution against the Turks, in 1824.
Additionally, Perama town, which is a 7 minute drive is very close too and it offers all the facilities and amenities one would need like well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop and bakery as well(hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am). Furthermore there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas.
Moreover, he beautiful sandy beaches of Bali are the ones closest to the Villa, just 10 minutes away by car.
