The Crete region
Rock Houses' "Villa Melody" is in the most touristic village of Chania prefecture, Platanias. It is only 3 minutes walking distance from a sandy beach which is unfolded in an extent of many kilometres and in which the visitor enjoys moments of relaxation in isolated beaches, moments of adventure with water sports in the well-organised beaches, or moments of frantic amusement in innumerable beach bars.
Precisely in front of the villa the magnificent port of Platanias is found, a small Marina that entertains fishing boats and tourist boats. From there you might visit, with a small boat that makes daily trips, the islet “Thodorou” precisely opposite Platanias in which the unique kri - kri (Cretan chamois) are protected, you can swim in splendid waters round the islet, and you can also enjoy diving, snorkelling and boat rides in innumerable other points of the gulf.
The village of Platanias, which in combination with its preferential place in the prefecture and the splendid beaches, is classified as one of the most touristic parts of Greece and you can find all services needed. Here you will find banks and ATM machines, post office doctor’s office, drugstores, super markets, commercial shops and shops with touristic types and souvenirs, a lot of playground areas and mini golf, restaurants, cafeterias, bars, clubs, as well as live music scenes.
There is also regular transportation urban and long distance, taxi and a lot of tourist offices and motorbike and car rental offices.
Also from a lot of points of the village, you can take the graphic mobile trains that make near and distant trips in beautiful locations and traditional villages outside the region of Platanias.
Souda which is the commercial harbour of Chania abstains only 30 minutes and the airport of Chania 45 minutes.
In Chania prefecture there are many choices for daily excursions or near walks, like the city of Chania, which abstains hardly 14 km from the villas. There you can walk in splendid small roads of the old city of Chania with background the famous and beautiful Venetian harbour, with the innumerable tourist shops taverns and restaurants, as well as a lot of bars and cafeterias.
Visit the Venetian fortress of Firka, in which the naval museum of Chania is accommodated. Precisely opposite dominates the famous lighthouse in the entry of the old harbour. Little further is also the archaeological museum of Chania, which has important discoveries of the Minoan years and from the ancient Kydonia. Also a very beautiful and interesting place to visit is the Municipal Market of Chania.
Platanias is also in the middle of a lot of destinations and it is very easy for you to be directed to the beauties of the island from here. The splendid Falassarna with the ancient harbour and the amazing big sandy beach, abstains hardly half an hour from the villa. Just about on the half of the way there, you enter Kasteli with its graphic port and fish taverns, as well as the main harbour of Kasteli which connects Western Crete with the island Kithira and Peloponnesus. From there you can take small boats that make daily excursions to splendid Balo with the magical landscape and Grampoysa with its castle.
In the southern part of the prefecture is Palaiohora, a graphic fish village with a lot of taverns, bars and tourist shops. From there you can take the boat for the island Gaydos, which is the European continent’s outmost southern piece, and Elafonisi with the sandy beaches and gulfs with all the nuances of blue colour in the sea.
By car you can go to the famous area of Sfakia and enjoy the very tasty “sfakianes pites” and other splendid flavours in their taverns. A big municipal parking where you can leave your car exists there and you can take the boat in order to visit Loutro village, a village of unique beauty in which automobiles don’t exist, it has spotless waters and a lot of hotels if you would want to stay for a night. The boat also goes to the Saint Roymeli village an other small graphic village where leads also to the gorge of Samaria.
Of course there are so many other places to visit that it is impossible to write in short all of the beautiful places in Chania perfecture. One just has to be here to experience the beauties of this wonderful island.

Travelled summer this year with my wife & our teenage daughter, what can we say about our stay, but wow! The photos are a true reflection of the villa, & the owners are exceptionally friendly & welcoming. It was definitely home from home with added benefits, your own pool & guaranteed sunshine!
When booking we were aware that the beach was near by & restaurants were within walking distance, but we didn't appreciate that they would be just outside the main entrance to the villas. Fantastic.
We couldn't ask for more & will certainly return.

We (a couple) stayed at Villa Melody for a week in April/May last year. The property is set back from the main street behind gates but it is so quiet and peaceful that the proximity is no issue at all… More
Thank God we have so nice guests staying with us! I recommend any home owner to always welcome such a nice couple to their homes as they are a blessing to all rental owners.They took very good care of our property and it was amazingly clean when they left!

"Home from Home"
From the moment we arrived to the sad day of our departure we were made to feel very welcome. All the family are so friendly and Chester the dog is certainly a loveable character. The Villa is beautifully furnished both inside and out and the pool was a welcome relief from the Cretan sun. Being so near to all the towns facilities was great and once the gate is closed behind you you feel that you are really private and it is surprisingly quiet. The beach is just a very short walk with plenty of places to eat of have a drink. We would love to go back one day.

"Simply the best!"
After sailing for a week and a couple of days in Athens, Rock Houses' villa Melody was just the thing we needed to finish our Honeymoon! Yioula, the care and consideration you have taken in the detail is fantastic and everything we could have wanted for a relaxing sunny break. It was great to know we could shut a gate on the world and live in what we called our own "little paradise" for 11 days. The tour to Samaria Gorge you organised for us was a brilliant day out and we so needed that jacuzzi when we got back! You made us feel very welcome in your home and dancing the night away in Rock House bar. What an amazing place that is!!! Thank you so much for making our honeymoon a holiday to remember FOREVER. A big thanks to Sofia and all the staff at Rock House. Hope Chester has had a good swimming lesson with Dave and very much look forward to seeing you all very soon. Best wishes from Rachel and Dave.

"A perfect oasis."
We have just returned from our holiday in Crete. We stayed in the Villa Melody, Rock Houses ,Platanias. We were greeted by Yioula the owner.of the villa. She was very friendly and welcoming and had even baked us a chocolate cake as a welcome gift! The villa was perfect, clean, spacious with lots of attention to detail. The bathroom was stocked with toiletries, there were bathrobes and slippers for all of us. The villa had everything we needed, including a lovely crystal clear pool and gardens. The main road of Platanias is just outside the gate , but the villa is soundproof, because we were never disturbed by noise.
The beach is very close, a few minutes by foot. We tended to go there at 5.00 when the sun was going down for a swim. The surf on occasions was excellent and there were body boards in the basement area of the villa to use.
The village is lively with a huge choice if tavernas and shops and supermarkets.
We had a brilliant restful and relaxing holiday. Yioula and Aris were lovely people, always around to help, but never intrusive, We would highly recommend the Rock Houses, Villa Melody or Villa Rhapsody.
Great people! Great family! Any owner who accommodates them will wish to have them to their rental all the time as I do! Never seen a more clean and respective family.
