First of all thanks a lot to Antonia and her family (a special thank to her mum who made Pastitio and cake for us! Yummy!) :)

The house was perfect for us (5 couples). New, clean and beautiful with a nice garden.

It is the perfect location for holidays. We enjoyed it!

See you soon!!

Amazing villa, with amazing hosts. Can't recommend it highly enough

  • 5 of 5

Had an incredible 2 weeks at Alonia Villa, everything was catered for. The kids had a great time splashing in the small pool, exploring the garden and making and cooking pizzas in the pizza oven. Whilst the adults relaxed by the pool and enjoyed the incredible weather and views. 2 great beaches only 15 minutes away in Panorma or Bali, and perama has everything you need for supplies only a few miles down the road (including a great butcher and fishmonger). Melidoni is quiet but pretty with a little cafe and ship for daily supplies too. I can't think of any faults, and would definitely recommend it!

Beautiful villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Alonia in September. There were nine of us, but the size and layout of the villa meant that there was plenty of space for all of us.

The house is set on the edge of a small, pretty village, but in easy reach of larger towns and some great beaches. The bedrooms are really nicely put together, and the outside space (the multiple balconies, beautiful garden and poolside area) was absolutely perfect.

Best of all, however, was the friendly welcome from Antonia and her family. They really pulled out all the stops to make sure we had the best possible stay, and went home feeling very happy indeed. Special mention too for Valia at Think Villa, whose help during the booking process was first-rate.

Highly recommended.

The best villa we have stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Antonia and her family greeted us warmly upon our arrival. Her mother had cooked us a lovely meal for our first evening and they had provided an amazing welcome basket. Antonia took time to show us around this beautiful, clean, fully equipped villa. Nothing was too much trouble and she even arranged for a mechanic to come to the villa when we had a flat tyre!

The outside area was cleaned every morning and the whole villa cleaned mid week with bed and towel change.

We have stayed in a few villas and this was by far the best. There is nothing I would change to make it better. I cannot express how much we enjoyed staying here - you have to visit it for yourself!

Thank you Antonia and family.

This is your place, Melidoni is a village near Panormo, Rethymno, which lies 4 km south of the coast and still close enough to main highways to reach a wide range of destinations.

The village has a petrol station, supermarket, kiosks, small regional cafes and local restaurants 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 worth visit is the nearby Melidoni Cave or Gerontospilios (2km away). Gerontospilios is very important 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.

The Bali & Panormo beaches, which are the closest are located 6 km away, while the beautiful beaches of Skaleta and of Geropotamos are 9 km away.

Margarites village which is 10 km away, the European ceramic art center, the famous monastery of Arkadi, the archeological site of ancient Eleutherna and the incomparable city of Rethymno.

Nearby village of Panormos, just 10 minutes away by car, has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.

Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.
