Melidoni Villa Rental Photos and Description

Well appointed Villas, each with private pool surrounded by a beautiful garden

Melidoni X Village is an idyllic resort with 5 beautiful independent villas.

Each of the detached houses has its own garden with sun terrace and private swimming pool.

The restaurant and the generously kept lobby area with fireplace and pool table are a successful supplement.

At the reception you will find extensive information on people and places as well as valuable tips and ideas for your vacation. Private living, including hotel service!

The combination of both makes Melidoni X Village different and especially accommodation.

The total area is so large that the individual parts have a good distance from each other and not interfere with each other.

You want to be able to discover the diversity of the island and to explore Crete but didn't want to be amongst the hords of tourists and package vacationers.The Melidoni X Village is the perfect place!

Still close enough to main highways to reach a wide range of destinations but away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traps.

Melidoni is a traditional Greek village near Perama, Rethymnon. The Village lies approximately 4 km south of the coast.The village has a petrol station, a bakery, a supermarket, a kiosk and a few small coffee shops and tavernas.

The beaches of Bali and Panormo are easily accessible being approximately 9km distant.

Cooperation: Catamaran cruises in Bali***Horse riding on the beach in Georopoulis***walking, climbing or bicycle tours in the close neighborhood and a lot more.

The region of Geropotamos is offering you various activities and of cause we will be more than to help you arranging all your activities to guarantee a unforgettable holiday

Incredible location and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best villas I have ever stayed in.

Georgios and Mareike are excellent hosts. Mareike will be your point of contact for booking, and sent us a huge amount of information on what we could do in Crete, with personal recommendations. Georgios provides front of house for their on-site restaurant and bar, and is partial to providing a healthy shot of raki and the end of your meal. The restaurant does fabulous food, and we ended up eating there most nights. We can particularly recommend everything.

The villa itself is unbelievable. This is one of the few instances I've ever experienced where the pictures, as beautiful as they are, don't quite do the location justice. The whole site is a riot of colour with beautiful planting and trees, with outstanding views across the valley. Each villa is also carefully spaced so you don't feel overlooked by your neighbours. Although you're next to a road, the only slight traffic is for Melidoni Cave at the top of the hill, which is well worth a visit, but the planting is done in a way where you cannot be seen from the road, even by the couple of cars that come through.

Inside, the villa was spotlessly clean and welcoming. The kitchen was also a nice surprise, as it is excellently equipped with everything you could want if you wanted to self-cater for the week. There's even a lemon juicer. There was also a desk with computer should we have needed it, and little touches like candles both inside and out. All the little touches are thought of, and really add to the 'homely' feel of the place.

I cannot recommend Melidoni X enough. My boyfriend and I just didn't want to leave at the end of our week. We will definitely be returning.

Island of peace and harmony

Kerestünk egy jó helyet ezen az oldalon a családunk - és megtaláltuk ezeket a szép villák .

Mi villa tökéletes volt számunkra .

Ez egy kicsit távolabb a tenger ( 9km ), mint az ideális , de nagyon tiszta és kényelmes volt sok dolog .

El?ször is : Minden villa egy separete területen saját medence és egy kis kert virágokkal .

A ház egy jó hangulatú , a bútorok szép , egyszer?, és ezeket a nagyon jó min?ség? .

A legfontosabb dolog : a mi gyerekek ( 4 és 6 évesek) játszhatna minden alkalommal a házban , vagy a saját uszoda ( tanszék rá : app.150cm , 8x3 , 5m ) .

A tulajdonosok ( a család ) nagyon kedves ... Köszönjük, hogy everithing ! :-)

Ajánljuk ezen apartmanok minden család , vagy barátok , akik nem akarnak utazni sokat Heraklion , és mint a wiew a montains ...

Ez az új és jó üdülési hely .

This is one of the best kept secrets on Crete. We stayed for a week in July and loved every minute. The villas are spacious and well appointed. The pool and garden are lovely and bigger than we expected from the photos. The overall setting is stunning with a beautiful outlook over the highest peak in Crete. It's well located for interesting day trips to the coast and inland. The food in the restaurant is fresh, tasty and good value. If you feel like dining out then there are lots of options within a short drive. We loved Panormos and also enjoyed an evening drink in one of the tavernas in the square down the road in Melidoni.

A wonderful place that we can't recommend highly enough!

Besser geht's nicht!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wunderbare Woche in der Anlage von Mareike und Georgios verbracht. Die Häuser sind sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Anlage ist einfach perfekt. Die Betreuung durch die beiden Eigentümer kann nicht besser sein. Das Essen im Restaurant (von Mareike liebevoll und ausschließlich mit frischen Zutaten der Saison hergestellt) war einfach toll. Herzlichen Dank für einen Urlaub, bei dem es an nichts fehlte.

einfach perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das Glück, uns im Oktober, für diese schöne Anlage entschieden zu haben. Die fünf Villen, mit Ihren jeweils eigenem Pool, so wie der dazu gehörige Taverne, fügen sich perfekt in die gepflegte Gartenanlage ein. Hier hat jedermann seine absolute Privatsphäre. Ein toller Ort um auszuspannen, oder auch die Insel zu erkunden. Auch kulinarisch bleibt hier nichts offen. Die Betreiber der Anlage, bürgen auch in der Taverne mit ihrem guten Namen und führen Küche und Service in eigener Regie. Hier wird die griechische Küche, ohne die üblichen Klischees, modern und gekonnt interpretiert. Zu den ansprechenden a`la Carte Gerichten, wird ein täglich wechselndes Tagesangebot präsentiert. Mal Appetit auf ganz etwas anders - kein Problem, einfach einen Tag vorher bestellen ! Rund herum - ein gelungener Urlaub ! Vielen Dank sagen Conny & Peter !!

The village of Melidoni is found approximately 27km east of Rethymno in the Municipality of Geropotamos.

The village now has developed considerably although there are still some old Venetian buildings to be seen in the back streets if you take a walk through. During the summer the village is extremely lively, with dancing and public events. On Clean Monday, the last day before Lent, there is an ancient ceremony only held in a very few places on Crete, marking the day with much festivity including fancy dress.

The village has its own bakery, petrol station and small grocery shops as well as tavernas and kafanea together with the inevitable kiosk as found all over Greece.

Nearest beaches: Bali 9km distance, Panormo 10km

Next town: Perama 5km
