Property description

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 M2 and there are 4 bedrooms – 2 on the ground floor and two on the upper floor – which can accommodate 8 persons, or even 10 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.
