Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Rethymnon - Villa Arethousa

5 Bedrooms , 6 bathrooms 2-12 people can be accommodated.

This house invites you to enjoy its elegance and nobility and to share with it the gifts of the beautiful garden and the sense of the tranquility. On leaving the house, you will feel emotionally and mentally richer. Arethousa proves that a house is not only a place to live in, but can also change your senses and make your spirit gentle and sweet. It is one of the noble houses of Melidoni, a village rich in architecture and history. It is construction to be preserved, according to the Greek Ministry of Culture, and was restored in the 2005 under its supervision. It was the owner’s Christina Hatzidakis’, birthplace, built 200 years ago and its decoration bears her sensitivity and taste. It is a house that gives you a feeling of love.

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 mins drive. A car rental can be arranged to pick you up at the airport and drive you to your villa. Perama is at a distance of 3 km and the traditional village of Panormo with the beautiful restaurants near the sea is at a distance of 9 km/10 mins drive!

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 webpage.

The gardens area is 2000 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 sq.m adult swimming pool and a 12 sq.m children’s swimming pool which can also function as a hydro massage, providing you with serenity.

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 your swim near the area. There are plenty of beautiful beaches in the area also!

Magical

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is magical. The villa and garden are stunning. Sitting by the pool in the beautiful garden with the view of the mountains is incredible. We were 6 adults and 2 teenagers. All spent a lot of time in the very clean and good sized pool. In the garden, it felt as if you were in the middle of nowhere but it was a couple of minutes walk to the central square with the taverna. We spent a couple of evenings at the village taverna - the atmosphere was great.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were simply but smartly decorated and everyone slept really well, particularly when the shutters were closed. The villa has beautiful woodwork and stonework and has been very well renovated. The kitchen had all we needed and we used the BBQ facilities a lot, eating outside in the flower filled garden.
It was also very quick to get to Bali beach where we spent a number of fabulous days and evenings trying various water sports and eating at the good restaurants. But the villa was also well placed for trips to villages in the mountains, we particularly enjoyed Margarites.
The family were very welcoming and attentive and were keen to make sure we had all we needed to enjoy the holiday.
Overall, this has been one of the best villas we have stayed in and we have stayed in a number over the last 10 years.

A beautiful villa in a lovely traditional village

  • 5 out of 5
We are a family of 6 adults, 1 child age 9 and 2 toddlers. We all had an amazing holiday in this beautiful villa. It was clean, well stocked and had everything you would need for a large family. The pool and garden area are lovely and very safe for the little ones to play. They especially loved running up and down the long path between the house and pool. We had a great barbeque but didn't get round to using the pizza oven. The village is beautiful and the people were
friendly. It has two small shops that have most things, and their are bigger supermarkets a short drive away if needed. Their are some lovely restaurants and shops near the beach a short drive away in panoma and bali.
I would highly recommend Villa Arethousa and would love to go back their in the future.

Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We are a family of 12 from 3 different countries and include 3 young children. Arethousa was excellent. The property was clean, well maintained and as described in the listing. The kitchen was supplied with adequate equipment, dishes, pots, etc. as were the bathrooms. The BBQ and outside dining was great. Local stores and a restaurant were within a short walk. The villagers were friendly and helpful and enough spoke English so communication was not a problem.The kiddie pool was a plus since the 4 year old cannot swim. On the minus side, the beds were too firm for some and there was just enough flatware for our group. There were a couple of minor repairs needed when we arrived but the owners were very responsive in correcting them. All and all we were very pleased and would go back again.

a lovely comfortable family house that has it all

  • 5 out of 5
The house is homely, traditional but restored with love and care and with all the amenities to make you want to go to your "home' on Crete and take a dip in the pool before starting the barbecue.ideal even for for a big family with the extra little house in the lovely garden.

Heaven in Crete

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Arethousa is superb. The house is absolutely beautiful and even better than the pictures or YouTube video. This 200 year old family home was restored by an architect, family member who added elegant yet personal touches throughout. The pool area was gorgeous and the refrigerator was even stocked with the basics for our arrival.

The house is in the beautiful small village of Melidoni and is centrally located on the island of Crete. The restaurants in the town are quite good and the people of the town were very friendly to us. It felt like home.

Several in our group, including myself, work for a major airline and travel extensively. This property was a refreshing change from the same old, same old, and we are planning on staying there again.

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.
