Our holiday at Villa Arethousa 27/7/19 to 10/8/19
A magnificent villa set in impressive grounds.The villa is spacious and had no problem in accommodating our party of 8 adults and 4 children. The kitchen had more than enough crockery , glassware and cutlery for our needs and the outdoor eating area was where we had most of our meals. The pool is simply fantastic and the spacious grounds are lovingly maintained. A wonderful experience and we were very sad when our fortnight came to an end.
The property hosts were so helpful. When we had unexpected extra guests for 1 night, they brought us extra folding beds to accommodate and when I stupidly kept the key with me, they were able to arrange to get it back to them when I was at the airport the following day. Thanks so much! This property is in a very quaint tiny town with a super friendly and yummy restaurant for when you just want to take a break from going places.
It was very nice we have you this season in our villa and hope to meet you soon in the future!
My greetings to all your family!
Family Reunion in Crete
We chose Crete to meet up with our 3 daughters and their families for 10 days
because none of us had been there before. We were very lucky to have chosen this picturesque town with its narrow curving streets where everyone was friendly and the beautiful villa which was very comfortable. Fragrant fruit trees line the Villa walkways and everyday with breakfast we had freshly made orange juice. The young children swam each morning in the protected heated pool and our afternoons were spent exploring the area. The Paraschakis Family Olive Farm was wonderful, the Melidoni Cave was close and the beautiful city of Rethymno with its Venetian old town provided some shopping opportunities. We ate out almost every night at at the new restaurant in Peramo because the main courses and the deserts were delicious. We had an amazing adventure and our hosts were very accommodating!
A fabulous 5 star property with pool and jacuzzi. A very high standard throughout.
Local villagers couldn't be more friendly and helpful, special thanks to Maria, Sofia, Yanis and Stavros!
Highly, highly recommended, thank you for a wonderful holiday!
Dear Mrs Veronica
Thanks a lot for this nice review !
I look forward to meet you again in future!
Great villa. Lovely pool and view of the hills.
Relaxing, traditional home. We based ourselves here for a week. Found it easy to travel to places of interest. We loved the home made olive oil and wine that was left as a gift.
I have just celebrated a special birthday and wanted to be out of the country for it! I had a vision of a beautiful villa in a picturesque setting situated in a traditional Cretian village where I would celebrate with my extended family. Nothing flashy but I wanted somewhere well appointed and very comfortable. Villa Arethousa is all that and more .. we were all enchanted by it. The photos on the website don't actually do it justice - the garden is much bigger and the path leading from the villa to the pool area is a beautiful walk, with vines and flowers... Great pool and lounging area with the best views ever. Hard to leave and go sightseeing.
There is a lovely courtyard at the back where we had drinks before my birthday meal. Great to sit if you want to read quietly or to just imbibe the ancientness of the villa!
Well equipped kitchen, lovely bedrooms - nice lounge and snuggy alcoves! We were a family of nine, including our 20 something kids and their partners. They all loved the villa and were happy to just chill. I think the villa would suit all ages. Antonis arranged for a lovely lady to prepare my birthday meal at the villa- beautiful cretian dishes and tons of it! Highly recommended..
I hope this review doesn't sound too gushing but I actually cannot reccomend the villa highly enough. If you want some quality togetherness with friends or family in a spectacular setting then you will love it. Best hols ever!
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.
