Overview

Rethymno Villa Rental Photos and Description

A self- catering fully equipped stone villa with spectacular views

Villa Melitta is a noble house built by George Hatzidakis. He used all his research into traditional architecture and put all his love into the house. The project was finished in 2004. In the middle of a 5000 sq.m fruit grove, rises a small palace, reminding us of a Venetian villa. Melitta is situated just outside of the village of Melidoni, in a quiet environment with a broad and beautiful view of the Tallaia mountains and Psiloritis. There is a wide variety of trees in its huge garden – orange, olive, pear, apple, and peach trees – offering fruits throughout the year. There are also flowers and organically grown vegetables in the backyard of the house. The house covers 250 M2 and there are 5 bedrooms – 2 on the ground floor and 3 on the upper floor – which can accommodate 10 persons, or even 12 if you use the two sofa beds of the sitting room. It has a tasteful interior and there are two verandas on the upper floor, offering you a choice of the view you prefer.

Further Details for The Villa In Rethymno,Crete: The nearest airport of Heraklion (HER) is located 50 km east of the villa, while the port of Rethymnon lies at a distance of 29 km. The airport of Chania (CHQ) is another 90km to the west, that is a 1 hour 30 min drive. A car rental can be arranged to pick you up at the airport and drive you to your villa.

As the owners cooperate with a car rental company you have the opportunity to hire cars in unique prices!!!

The nearest beach of Bali lies at a distance of 6 km, it is sandy and offers many opportunities for water sports. There are also quiet locations for guests to enjoy the beach without being annoyed by nearby jet-skiers or water-skiers. The sandy beach of Panormo offers you a second choice for swimming near the area. There are plenty of beautiful beaches in the area also!

There are some interesting excursions you can go in Kastri, Melidoni and the outskirts. The distances and routes are shown on the map in the web page.

The garden area is 5000 sq.m. Inside the garden there is a kiosk, BBQ area, beautiful plants, fruit trees and many corners to relax. There is also a 50 M2 adult swimming pool and a 12 M2 children’s swimming pool.

The discreet stone wall surrounding the gardens and the cool shade of the house offer privacy and, you will feel that, time passes by at your own pace, offering you a sense of childish happiness.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa and grounds exceeded expectations. With ages ranging from nearly 2 to 65 years old, it worked very well for us all. The different outdoor seating options were a real treat. We do not return to the same places as there's so much to explore but with a place this good, we might be breaking that rule!

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 of 5

The position was perfect for us, quiet with wonderful views, just a short drive to the beach. The villa was excellent, clean, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. The garden and swimming pool (heated - nice so early in the year) were lovely. All in all," just what it said on the tin".

Lovely villa in perfect surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Melitta. The villa is large, clean and well decorated and is in a very quiet and peaceful location. The heated pool was warm enough to swim without needing to get out too quickly! Our young grandchildren particularly liked the small pool which was deep enough for them to swim but shallow enough to stand up in. The gardens and grounds are large and well maintained. We loved being able to pick oranges and lemons from the trees and to make fresh juice to drink. The villa is very private and safe. It is a short walk from Melodoni village which is small and very greek but does have two mini markets and a taverna. We had a brilliant time at the villa helped by the fantastic weather. We very much hope to return.

Wonderful. Very well designed and presented. Loved

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and sits in beautiful gardens with the pool out to the front and stunning views. We went as two families and the upstairs and downstairs worked perfectly as two comfortable areas for us to use. Local people were very friendly and eating out was very good value indeed.

Early spring stay at Villa Melitta

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property in a traditional Cretian village with mountain views. If you want to get away from it all and have the space to relax in very private & peaceful surroundings then you will not be disappointed! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Melitta, spending hours in the beautifully cared for grounds and pool.

Picking fresh oranges and lemons each day from the trees in the huge orchard within the garden was a simple pleasure that just added something special to the whole experience! That plus the large heated pool (and separate kiddies pool) made it perfect for spending real quality time together as a family. The rooms were all immaculately maintained and cleaned professionally with more of a luxury hotel feel rather than the average villa rental. The personalised sheets and towels showed the attention to detail and effort that goes into taking care of the property....first class! The Hazidikis family who own the property were also very welcoming, friendly and helpful in every aspect. Not many places that we have visited leave us with a desire to return but Villa Melitta and Crete certainly did.....fantastic memories that we all cherish and we will definitely return in the near future. Thanks once again for allowing us to experience your little paradise in Crete. Kind regards, Paul Harris and family.
