lovely villa in secluded hillside with all that you need

  • 5 of 5

The owners and their two adult children were delightful in assisting us and making sure everything was in order. The children both speak English. The pool, garden, pizza oven and BBQ were lovely, cleaned daily by the owner Costas. There was table tennis, table football, gym equipment, two kids bikes and inflatables for the kids with play station and games indoors. A welcome food basket and a cooked supper awaited us on arrival! We had a mid week clean and another gift of cake, walnuts from the garden and herbs dried from the garden. There were oranges, lemons, pomegranates, herbs and walnuts all to picked for use - really lovely. The rooms were lovely and each with a bathroom and TV and aircon. the weather was too cold for the pool but it did look inviting! It was an hours drive to the airport at Heraklion and it was central on the north coast so we managed to travel west, east and south within 1 1/2 hours. Easily sleeps 10 in the 5 bedrooms , 3 of which were twin bedded. The guest book said they provide stuff for babies and the enormous settee in the large lounge would easily sleep another 2. We enjoyed our stay thanks. Loved the log fire at night.

What a find!!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a magical 10 day stay at this beautiful villa. A family holiday with ages ranging from 7-80. The villa is immaculately presented, spacious and airy with lots of different spots outside, meaning you could always find a shady quiet place.

What makes this place extra special is the owners and the hospitality and welcome they provided. We were greeted warmly by all the family and provided with a lovely meal on our first evening. Their care and attention continued throughout our stay with further homemade treats. Antonia was always on hand to answer any queries and the bi-weekly cleaning was carried out to a very high standard.

The villa is the nicest we have ever stayed in, set in the quiet village of Melidoni which has everything you need for day to day essentials.

We would recommend it without hesitation!

Thank you for a fabulous holiday.

Fabulous villa and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a group of 11, and were thrilled with the standard of the villa and pool. All spotlessly clean and well cared for. The owners met us when we arrived, showed us around the villa and they had kindly home cooked us a hot lunch as well as supplying a welcome pack...just brilliant. The owners kept in touch to ensure every thing was perfect and when they came to clean mid week, they even bought us homemade cake and snacks!

We used the pizza oven to cook some amazing meals and used the BBQ each night. Shopping is really easy in the next village just 5 minutes away and there is a Lidl about 25 minutes easy drive away. The villa is very secure with high stone walls and electric gates so cars are parked securely off road.The villa is in a small village so you are really living with the locals and are made welcome in the two local tavernas. Everyone was so friendly. We can highly recommend this villa and the lovely family who own and manage it.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the most amazing 10 days in Alonia Villa. It is a beautiful villa and the owners could not be more hospitable. The inside is immaculate and very spacious. The outside is so well thought out with seating areas placed all around the gardens so you can sit in the sun at any time of day or grab quiet time on your own. The gardens are very well looked after and floodlit in the evenings which gives a lovely atmosphere. The pools are also fantastic.

Antonia messaged us regularly to see if there was anything they could help with and recommended restaurants and shops for us, she also booked us taxis for our night out. Zaxarenia cooked us the most amazing Pistatsio and cheese pies and we could pick lemons and herbs in the gardens to use.

The local village is a short stroll up the road where there are 2 shops and a great taverna.

We would highly recommend this villa to all our friends and family and hope to come back again soon.

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.
