About the villa

Walk to shops and restaurants | Fabulous views | Lovely private pool

Welcoming, comfortable and utterly conducive to rest and relaxation, this charming villa is one of two very popular properties which share a rural estate. Each completely independent, with a high degree of privacy, Meli and its sister-villa Levanda enjoy an extraordinarily peaceful setting, with the Green Mountains as a backdrop and views, over olive groves and the roof tops of Gavalochori, to tantalising glimpses of the Cretan Sea. The village is a ten minute walk away, with a couple of tavernas and grocery shops, while sandy beaches on the bay are about a ten minute drive.

With its series of furnished terraces, stone floors and arches, timber beamed ceilings, and hand-crafted furniture, Villa Meli has all the attributes of a typical Greek retreat. But these are complemented by contemporary comforts including air conditioning, WiFi and satellite TV, Coco Mat mattresses and en suite shower rooms, and a cool pool, with an adjacent play room and kitchenette. Cook service could be added for authentic island cuisine, and Chania is within easy reach for harbour restaurants and historic sites.
