Absolutely perfect in every way !

5 of 5
This beautiful villa in the old village if Atsipopoulo was perfect for us (4 ladies in our early 60’s celebrating a lifelong friendship) Through the private entrance there are 3 villas, each with its’ own private pool and grounds , ours was Villa Elia... We arrived in the early hours of the morning to be welcomed by George (with raki and a Cretan cheese pie which his mama, Maria, had made) We fell into the very comfortable beds which all have beautiful, high quality cotton bed linen. As this villa sleeps 8 we were able to have a double room each. The open plan ground floor comprises the kitchen/dining/ lounge areas, all extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean and tastefully yet comfortably furnished. Cleaning and fresh bed linen and towels was done mid week too. AC in every room – which was great as the temperatures were between 28 and 31 degrees every day! We spent most of our waking hours outside – in the shaded dining area, pool, sun loungers and barbeque(which we did use – no problem at all) The fragrant plants around the pool added to our pleasure and privacy too. Our time together is precious and Villa Elia was just the perfect place to relax and be in each other’s company. We were also adopted by a gorgeous cat who seemed to own the villa – we loved her and fed her for the week but she didn’t seem at all bothered when we left! George and his family were so helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Maria also made us a cake mid week, invited us to her studio where she makes jewellery and gave us all a gift before we left. When one of our group left their phone in a shop in Rethymno, George’s sister drove them down and helped locate it. Above and beyond! Such lovely people. Can’t recommend this villa enough – thank you George, Maria and the girls. Tips:- There is a bus stop on the left outside the villa for Rethymno (about 10mins) – the tickets can be bought at the supermarket (to the right of the villa entrance). Take time to wander around the back streets of Atsipopoulo if you can – it’s a beautiful old village – lots of photo opportunities. There are 3 very traditional restaurants in the village serving authentic Cretan food and the menus are not extensive but if you give a days notice they will get fish from the port or even cook a vegetarian dish for you (although they will worry about your health!) There is a souvlaki take-away and a pizza place too.

Lovely Stay

5 of 5
Celine is a wonderful hostess and made us feel welcome straight away. The apartment was fine, very clean and tidy, with nice views and in a very accessible spot. It was great to be able to go to the beach at the bottom of the hill in the evenings for a swim!
