Perfect stay in the beautiful Villa Belle

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful 5 bedroom villa justifies the name of Villa Belle.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely owners Stelios and Joanne who explained everything we needed to know and gave us their number if we needed them for anything.

Also Kostas, the booking agent, and his team were excellent from the moment we booked the villa until we left. They answered questions promptly, organised some groceries for us on arrival and taxi’s throughout our stay. Between Kostas and the owners they couldn’t do enough for you.

The Villa is situated up high on a hill within a quiet location with tremendous views over the sea and the local town of Rethymno. We were surprised at the size of the Villa and land as we drove through the electric gated entrance which opened into a massive parking area in front of the villa. The beautiful gardens had a good sized swimming pool, hot tub, Gazebo, and plenty of toys for the kids to enjoy. There were shaded areas under the trees if it got too hot and for some of us sun worshipers plenty of loungers, comfortable seats and even a hammock for the adults to relax or sunbathe.

Inside was beautiful with its lovely cool shiny tiled floors and stairs giving an air of opulence with all the modern day comforts plus more included. There was a well equipped Kitchen with plenty of cupboards, crockery and utensils, dishwasher and fridge freezer AND also a fresh supply of Eggs from the owners chickens every other day. There are 5 large bedrooms with big comfortable beds, especially the room on the lower floor which had a lovely en-suite with wet room shower. The main living/dining room area had a large TV and PlayStation console.There was also a games rooms with plenty to do including a fussball table, a pool table, table tennis table and a for those of you who need to keep your figures trim, a gym with weights and a cross trainer.

Overall definitely a 5 star experience and I would recommend this villa for families and groups alike.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to go anywhere to visit the island. The owners are so much lovely. They assist us quickly, gently and respectfully. They speak French, what is a good point.

Before the arrival, Kostas and his team gave us all the keys for a good stay. Everything was very well organised. Once we landed, I received a message to know if we were arrived.

All the team make us have a wonderful stay in villa Belle. Congratulations!!

We recommend this villa, you won't regret

A beautiful villa with views to die for from all aspects of the building

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Belle, perfectly positioned in the village of Astipopolou overlooking the town of Rethymno. The facilities were as described, exceptionally clean and serviced regularly. We had a 5 year old with us and the child's pool and play area were perfect for her. The owners, Joanna and Stelios were really helpful and went out of their way to successfully retrieve a lost mobile phone in Rethymno town with the help of local residents. You will need a car to access beaches and the mountains. There are two very good tavernas at either end of the village which stretches out a long way so again transport is needed. We cannot recommend this villa, and it's owners, highly enough.

Beautiful Villa, Amazing views & perfect for kids

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 (kids at the time were ages 5, 3 and 6 months) and this villa was perfect for us as a family. The villa is very spacious inside with the main kitchen and lounge area being quite open plan. It was very nice to be able to walk straight out to the pool and not have to tackle any flights of stairs which some do have. The kitchen is very modern, the fridge stocked full of fresh eggs from the owners chickens which we loved for breakfast most mornings. The lounge has sat tv, excellent wifi which stretches to all areas of the property.

The basement level has a gym, ping pong table and another huge bedroom with lovely modern bathroom.

The upper floor had a further 2 bedrooms, but the highlight for us was the outside area - the pool was lovely to swim in, the temperature was perfect and there is even a fenced off smallish pool for the little ones. Our kids also loved playing in the playground area and the adjacent swings were also great. Nice to sit outside and eat dinner/lunch and some much needed rest for us parents when the kids were asleep.

Highly recommended!

Faultless !!!

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 8, we stayed at this property for 2 weeks. Upon arrival at the villa, we were greeted by the owners who made us feel very welcome and took time to show us everything available in and around the property. We were given fresh eggs, fruit, figs and cucumbers every few days and were given fresh home made olive oil to bring back home to the UK. The villa was equipped with everything you would need. It was home from home. The property itself was cleaned every 3 days, with fresh towels and bedding being changed as well. It was in a perfect location away from the main town, but within easy distance if you wanted it.

I would thoroughly recommend the villa and look forward to visiting it again soon. Sage & Graham Families

The villa is located just next to the village “Atsipopoulo”, a well known village which has flourished in the last 10 years and now is actually a small town in itself and a suburb of Rethymno. 

With an abundance of amenities Atsipopoulo nowadays has all kinds of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and services. The villa's positioning is ideal for people who relish a quiet place to relax but wish to be close to everything. 

Furthermore it is a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only 2 minutes away.  

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
