Our First Choice When We Return to Crete

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 11-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2014
We could not have selected a better location than Villa Myrtia. Comfort, hospitality, cleanliness and tasteful, inviting decor and architecture are all here. This is a spacious and relaxing home set in a secluded oasis in the center of the village of Atsipopoulu. Our hosts George and Maria were very gracious and ready at any time to tend to any requirements. Outside the gate, within one hundred meters, guests will find two village supermarkets that carry everything you may need, two wonderful bakeries, small Greek restaurants, a city bus stop with regular runs to Rethymno (2 KMs away) and a local village community of extremely polite and friendly people. The location of the Villa Myrtia itself is ideal for striking out on excursions to the beach, Rethymno Old Town, the mountains and scenic drives. Or, relax for the afternoon at the Villa and enjoy the beautifully refreshing private pool. All of the photos of this lovely property are spot-on and the hospitality of owners George and Maria make Villa Myrtia a must for anyone looking to relax with family or friends and experience the best of a Cretan holiday. Fives Stars!

Dear George,

thank you and your family for hospitality. Villa Myrthia was very nice and our family liked it much. We are so happy that we chose your property and meet you and your family. Thank you for your welcome raki :) We found property very easy. Also villa is in very conveniant location - just few meters away you can find everything that you need. We liked much Rethymno old town, Chania old town and other places which we visited in the island. Villa is only few km away from Rethymno in very cosy and quiet place.

Just notice: in one of our chosen bedrooms bed was creaky ;)

Our stay at Villa Myrtia was everything we hoped for and even more. The family is so friendly and welcomed us to Greece in the best kind of way. The house was clean och BEAUTIFUL, and even though we were 9 persons staying in the house it felt so big. The village which the house is located in is very cosy and has good supermarkets and a couple of great Crete restaurants, also an awesome bakery with the best bread I've ever eaten. Only thumbs up for this villa, I can highly recommend it to everyone! (We stayed with two small kids and it worked out perfect)

Amazing villa, great location - away from the touristy areas, but with in striking distance of rethymno for all holiday needs. Would not hesitate to recommend George, Magda and Marta's villa. Perfect stay will be back next year.

We had a wonderful vacation at the villa we stayed a week with my husband two children and another couple and child. We wished we booked for two weeks as we where not ready to go home. George and his family Mary and Magda could not of been nicer they where very efficient and kind. The villa was sparkling clean when we arrived and after 3 days it was cleaned once again. It was so nice to be on holiday with no other tourist around the village. We did go to Rethymnon a couple of times to eat at the harbour restaurants, which had good food and bustling atmosphere, It took less than 10mins in the car to get there. we would highly recommend staying there and we will definitely go back to stay in the future.
Thanks again George, Magda and Mary you where all wonderful!

Car: recommended

Villa Myrtia is built almost in the center of Northern Crete in Atsipopoulo Village, 3 km from Rethymno city.

The village of Atsipopoulo is strategically placed and therefore it has seen many battles against the Turks. The houses are closely built to each other and are easily converted to a fortress in times of need. The residents realized the architectural value of their homes and respected and up kept them. In this way Atsipopoulo today upholds the traditional look and sophistication of Venetian years. Its neighborhoods, its churches and spellbinding alleys will charm the visitor. Walking through the side streets they will find themselves under Venetian galleries and arches.

Rethymno

Welcome to Rethymnon, the capital of the prefecture of the same name. It is located on the north Mediterranean coast, between the prefectures of Chania and Heraklion. The town of Rethymnon still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, small Venetian harbour and narrow streets.

The Venetian Loggia and the municipal gardens are also some sites that you don't want to miss. Arcadi monastery is a place which reminds to all Cretans and any visitor the struggle for freedom against Turkish conqueror. It is a historical monument which attracts many visitors every year. The town of Rethymnon offers great amusements as small bars near the seaside, clubs, restaurants and many small picturesque taverns.

People of Rethymnon as all Cretans, are very hospitable people and they will try to make you feel like your home. You will also have the chance to taste the delicious local products!

There is a mountainous area in the centre of the prefecture, from where you have access to the highest peak of the mountain Psiloritis . Wonderful exotic beaches decorate the prefecture, where you can forget your worries and relax in a luxurious hotel or any accommodation of your taste.
