We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

In the heart of the traditional Cretan village of Melidoni stands the beautifully renovated, characterful Villa Lucas. Converted from a historic village dwelling, the villa retains many of its charming rustic features combined with modern comforts, to offer its guests the perfect home-from-home in Crete.
The complex is set around a courtyard and comprises two separate, self-contained units. The main villa features a charming living room with patio doors, a fully equipped kitchen/dining room and two bedrooms sharing a bathroom. The second smaller building can be accessed from the pool terrace and garden area, and houses a kitchenette and dining area, double bedroom and shower room. The villa’s layout means that guests can spend quality time together in the common areas and around the pool, while maintaining a level of privacy at night or whenever required.
The newly added private swimming pool is surrounded by sunbathing terraces and spacious lawned gardens speckled with lemon trees: a rarity for a house in such a central location. For those who love alfresco dining, a barbecue and an outside dining area are both provided. Tucked away amongst mature grounds, the villa offers a haven of privacy despite being in the centre of a village. A short stroll away are a minimarket and taverna, while the amazing beaches of Panormos and Bali are within a 15-minute drive. Melidoni is in the region of Rethymnon which takes around half an hour to reach by car. Here you can stroll along the palm-lined promenade next to the long sandy beach, and visit the town’s plethora of shops and excellent seafood tavernas.

The lovely harbour town of Rethymnon is located on the north coast of Crete between the capital, Heraklion and Chania and conveniently served by two airports.
The historic centre offers a great deal with its hallmark fortress, pretty paved alleyways, a plethora of shops and excellent tavernas serving traditional Cretan fare and fish. The Town also boasts a palm lined promenade and a long sandy beach and various festivals are held here throughout the summer season including the well-known Wine Festival in September.
We offer a beautiful selection of villas in Rethymnon, located along the coast to the east and west of the town and also just slightly up into the hills behind the centre, close to charming hillside villages offering panoramic views along a stunning coastline; Atsipopoulos, Asteri, Maroulas and Gerani to name but a few.
