Villa Velanidia - Crete

This attractive stone-built house is a charming retreat for two, within walking distance of the historic village of Amnatos and its traditional taverna. Villa Velanidia is set in extensive private grounds, filled with citrus and olive groves interspersed with the majestic oak trees from which the house takes its name.

The outdoor dining terrace is a wonderful spot for breakfast, fresh from a dip in the pool. You can spend the whole day here in blissful seclusion, enjoying the sea views from the gardens and the terrace. Close by is the historically significant monastery of Arkadi and the Kapsaliana Village Hotel which showcases traditional crafts, cuisine and architecture.

This is also an excellent base from which to explore the Roman city of Eleftherna and the ceramics centre of Margarites.
