Tastefully renovated basement studio/apartment using a mix of modern and traditional methods. On the street level of our family home, situated on the edge of the village square. Guests have the full run of the apartment as well as a level seating area outside the front door,( Greek Style) and a small raised terrace which overlooks the village square.

We are as flexible as possible on check in/out times, dependant on our other bookings, please contact us to discuss if necessary.

The Village

Melambes is a traditional Cretan (Greek) Village. There are two well stocked supermarkets, around 6 Cafe-neons ( some more traditional in appearance than others, All of these will serve a Mezze with your drinks but one in particular carries a wider "menu" for a more substantial meal ) , There is also a more modern Bar and one "Village" Taverna. We have a village bakery, so fresh bread is available daily. The village can be a little busier in August when lots of the locals return home for their holidays.

Getting Around

We recommend hiring a car to make the most of your stay, but we can help with that, we have arranged special rates with a local firm, with airport collection/return if required. Secure parking/storage for motorcycles and bicycles is available (but to be honest not needed). Although there is vehicular access right to the front door, The street is very narrow, the easiest access and Parking is from the main square just 10 metres away.
