Entire cottage in Melidoni

Welcome to Antama! Our newly restored 19th century stone house has been refurbished with lots of care and attention to detail, in order for our guests to get an authentic taste of Cretan country life in an off-the-beaten-path destination. Our property is located in Melidoni, a village of great historical significance to locals, 30 kilometres away from Rethymno (one of Crete’s four main cities), which preserves its traditional atmosphere and character to this day.
Room overview

Our house is the oldest in the area (or second oldest!). All the restoration work that has been done was carefully designed to provide guests with all the necessary modern-day comforts, but at the same time preserve the house’s original aesthetic and feel. Stone and ochre-painted walls, wooden ceilings and curious items dating from times past – all aim to recreate the house’s warm and hospitable atmosphere that attracted all those people back in the day.

There are three double bedrooms – one in what used to be the cellar, one on the ground floor and one on the upstairs loft. The kitchen is fully supplied with new and quality equipment for you to prepare your favourite meals (or enjoy home-cooked take-aways from the nearby restaurant, a few steps away from the house).

There are two different sitting rooms for relaxing, as well as an area perfect for remote working or studying.

The house has got two bathrooms (both have a shower).

In the courtyard there is a wood oven, so get ready to cook with friends and family (You don’t know how to use one? What a perfect time to learn!). Notice the large terracotta pots (now used as decorative props, but once filled with olive oil, grains or traditional “raki”), as well as the millstone used to grind olives and produce oil.

Finally, the swimming pool, perfect for those hot summer days. Relax on the sunbeds and take in the sounds and smells of Melidoni (don’t be surprised if you catch a whiff of Christina’s delicious cooking from Carob and Olive!).

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire property and the courtyard.

Other things to note

After lots of consideration and brain-storming, we decided to call our house “Antama”, meaning “together”, in honour of all those people that, throughout Antama’s long history, have sat around the table in the courtyard to eat and drink, distilled raki inside the “fabrika” (the adjacent building, once a workspace and mill), or shared the water from the blessedly full well.
