    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    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 2001. 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 220 sq.m. and there are 4 bedrooms – 2 on the ground floor and two on the upper floor – which can accommodate 8 persons,... more

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Villa Melita is a lovely stone detached villa set amongst lawned gardens and many fruit trees with its large pool taking pride of the place to the front of the property and catching the sun all day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa Melitta. We were met in Melidoni village on arrival and taken to the villa. It is Ian lovely private location with views of the mountains, complete with snow on the mountaintops in April. The villa is spacious and well equipped with lots of different areas to be able to sit in the... more

Wonderfully equipped, tranquil villa in the heart of a genuine Crete village. Beautiful views from the balconies and a pool to lounge in for many hours. Efficient and friendly owner, the villa was spotlessly clean. The caves nearby are spectacular and the beach at Bali is only a short drive away. If you crave privacy and total relaxation under spectacular... more

Villa Melitta is even more beautiful than it looks on the pictures! The setting is ideal, peacefully tucked away in the mountains away from tourist tat, but 2 mins walk from a village with shops & tavernas, and easy driving distance from lots of towns and attractions. The villa was particularly well laid out for us as we travelled with... more
