About Villa Melie

Villa Melie is a comfortable Cretan Villa which perfectly reflects the authentic architecture and ambience of the island’s traditional stone houses. Delightfully, it has been built entirely from stone sourced from its own hilly rural estate. From the property’s private swimming pool terrace you’ll enjoy sweeping panoramic views across the lush olive groves of the valley of Gavalochori.

Built on three levels, Villa Melie comfortably accommodates six guests in three double bedrooms. Beautifully decorated and appointed, there’s everything here that you could possibly need for a comfortable and relaxing getaway. The neighbouring villa within this romantic rural estate, Villa Rosemary, may potentially be booked at the same time, enabling a group of up to 12 guests to share the experience of this tranquil haven.

The nearest sandy beach, complete with seafront tavernas, shops and markets, is only a 10-minute drive from your secluded eyrie. The picturesque sleepy village of Gavalochori is within walking distance, where you’ll discover a handful of traditional Greek eateries. And the charming attractions of the popular town of Chania are only 30 minutes away on a scenic drive through Crete’s countryside.
