Villa
Villa Amaltheia is located near the village of Melidoni at the western part of the island of Crete. The location, on a mountain slope, at an altitude of 410 meters, allows for any kind of holiday; whether guests are interested in walking in the breath taking mountains, offering amazing opportunities for walkers and bike riders, enjoying the taste of the local food, as a base point from which to tour the island, or as somewhere to do nothing more than stay and relax, you can do all this and so much more. With the village of Melidoni on the door step, guests can enjoy a true taste of Crete in a truly historical village mingling with the locals, who are very welcoming, in the traditional 'Cafeneon' (coffee house). There is a dazzling long, golden, sandy beach just a twenty minute drive away...Villa Amaltheia is located near the village of Melidoni at the western part of the island of Crete.

There is a dazzling long, golden, sandy beach just a twenty minute drive away in the wonderful town of Kalives. The beach is semi-organized, allowing for both relaxation and seclusion. There are a number of tavernas in Kalives, as well as an awe-inspiring church in the main square, opposite which, is a wonderful traditional taverna allowing guests to enjoy the true taste of Cretan cooking. The city of Chania is a spectacular melting pot of culture, history and architecture, with Venetian and Turkish elements in the old cobbled, winding backstreets. In the Old Town and the harbor front there are a number of unique tavernas and shops. Also almost exactly the same distance away in the opposite direction to Chania is the slightly smaller City of Rethymnon offering an abundance of historical architecture, museums and finest harbor side eateries. Melidoni can be the backdrop to what will be a truly memorable and unique experience of Greek holidays. More
