Villa Location
Villa Melia is ideally located above the road between a cluster of bars, traditional tavernas and mini markets making it a great choice for those who want to have all the resort amenities on their doorstep. Two of the best local beaches in the area are also within walking distance. Set in a slightly elevated position, the villa certainly makes the most of the stunning view of the bay with Aghios Nikolaos in the distance. Our Villa Akali is on the same lane.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There is a selection of mini markets in the resort, whilst a larger supermarkets is located on the outskirts of both Aghios Nikolaos and Lerapetra. There is a local market in Aghios Nikolaos on a Wednesday morning and the market in Lerapetra on a Saturday morning. The markets sell fruit and vegetables and local produce for you to sample.


Bars and restaurants

There are 2 main local bars where you can catch up on sport and many traditional tavernas in the village serving both traditional meze and international cuisine.


Beaches

You can enjoy 2 of the best blue flag beaches in the area, just a 5 minute walk away from the villa. If you stroll through the olive groves you reach Agios Panteleimonas Beach with the church on the headland. This beach has sand and shingle and there are sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire. Alternatively, just along the main road, is the beach of Voulisma.


Family fun

The horse riding centre in Hersonissos is great fun for all the family and is less than 1 hours' drive away.


Places of interest

The charming village of Gournia, with its cobbled streets and ancient ruins, is just a short drive away or a couple of stops on the local bus. You can also visit Aghios Nikolaos which is well-known for the supposed bottomless lake, the mythical gateway to Atlantis, where Artemis and Athina bathed in its waters, and where Jacques Cousteau could not find the bottom. Well, you are in the land of myths and legends!


Golf

The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos. A more local yet smaller course is the 9-hole golf course at the Elounda Porto Hotel, about half an hours' drive away.


Other activities

You can explore the cave on the Plateau of Lassithi, the birth place of Zeus, by ascending 148 steps, 1½ hours' drive away.

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

As the name suggests this is a maze where the objective is to find the centre and the Minotaur, then find the escape route!! Its great fun for all the family and the route is changed regularly. It's a 3D maze with steps and bridges too just to make it more interesting! Along the way visitors will learn more about the myths and legends surrounding the famous Minotaur of Knossos.

There is also a mini golf and cafe, too for less energetic explorers. Children can also have a go in the pottery workshop where Minoan items are reproduced. An eco-garden with aromatic Cretan herbs, fruit trees and vegetable garden are all cultivated to ecological standards.
