Our villas are located at the upmost point of the idyllic Cretan village of Melidoni...

The peaceful village of Melidoni is in Western Crete in the Municipality of Apokoronas - a short drive from the bustling historic city of Chania.

You can mingle with the locals, who are very welcoming, in the traditional 'Cafeneon' or coffee house, or if you wish to explore the village of Melidoni there is a wonderfully tranquil church, as well as a historical spring, where you can learn about the origins of the village.

The village location allows for any kind of holiday; whether you are interested in walking in the breathtaking mountains of Crete, enjoying the taste of the local food, as a base point from which to tour the island, or as somewhere to do nothing more than stay and relax, you can do all this and so much more.

With the village of Melidoni on your door step, you can enjoy a true taste of Crete in a truly historical village. There's also a dazzling long, golden, sandy beach just a twenty minute drive away in the wonderful town of Kalives. The beach is semi-organised, allowing for both relaxation and seclusion. There are a number of tavernas in Kalives, as well as an awe-inspiring church in the main square, opposite which, the local small towns of Vrisses and Vamos are only fifteen minutes by car, both boasting an abundance of wonderful traditional tavernas allowing you to enjoy the true taste of Cretan cooking.

Allow Melidoni to be the backdrop to what will be a truly memorable and unique experience.
