A truly exceptional stone villa, one-of-a-kind in terms of preserved local architecture and refined ambience, stylishly decorated with antique pieces and strategically located next to globally famous beaches. The property is a 150 year old residence, previously home of the current owner's family dating back at least five generations, which was recently restored to very high standards. The villa, made out of local stone and wood, combines authenticity with a get-away-from-it-all environment. Generosity in space as well as attention-to-detail are evident all around, whereas a colorful garden with countryside views of small vineyards, olive groves and fig trees promises full relaxation.

Meli is a family-friendly villa as it offers plenty of room for the kids to play and the adults to relax. There are quite a few facilities for babies...

Meli is exactly as you can see it on the website, a very nice house with beautiful architecture. Elena (the owner) ask us before arrival what can she do for us so the stay will be as expected. She prepared us toys for the children. She surprised us with an welcome pack that included fruits and coffee and things to eat as breakfast, although this was not specified. Also we found 4 MTB bikes and helmets.
The terrace is very beautiful.

Meli house is close to the most beautiful beaches - Porto Katsiki and Egremni. If you are a wind surfer Vasiliki is not too far.

Before arriving we receive an email with important details about how to reach Meli, nice places we can eat and beaches descriptions. It was very useful.

We loved the holiday and for sure we'll return to Meli!

The house itself is so remarkable so it made our holiday even more memorable. It is comfortable, charming, cosy and completed even in small details. The location is very strategic for best beaches. The place is wonderful for calm, relaxing holiday, for nature lovers and retreat.
