Interaction with Guests

We will be available all through the guests stay, and more than happy ( if required) to introduce them to our neighbours and local shop, cafe-neon and bar owners in order that they may get the real village experience!!

There is a village bakery for fresh daily bread and two supermarkets for food and essentials.

Fresh eggs from our organic chickens are usually available daily.

The Neighborhood

Melambes is quite beautiful, nestled as it is on the mountainside. Whilst a short drive from the nearby award winning, Blue flag, beaches and resorts, its also an ideal base for walkers, hikers, and cyclists. The local mountainside is home to beautiful herbs and wild flowers. Painters and photographers especially appreciate the local scenery. The village can be a little busier in August when lots of the locals return home for their holidays.

Getting Around

Although there is vehicular access right to the front door, The street is very narrow, the easiest access and Parking is from the main square just 10 meters away. We recommend hiring a car to make the most of your stay, but we can help with that, we have arranged special rates with a local firm, with airport collection if required. Secure motorcycle/cycle storage is also available (but not necessary).

Everything we expected and more!

Our stay at Melambes studio apartment really was outstanding. Certainly a 10+/10!The location was fabulous, the apartment perfectly equipped. The weather was sunny and very warm everyday.

There are plenty of places to eat delicious fresh Cretan food in the village. There are wonderful beaches a short drive away and many places to visit in the area. The hosts are welcoming, generous and hospitable.
