Lovely house with courteous owners

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't fault the house and there was an abundance of space inside and out. We didn't make full use of the house, being 2 adults and 2 kids under 5 (house could accommodate 10) but even with max occupancy there would be loads of room.

Owners were lovely and greeted us on arrival and cane over to say goodbye on our last day. They were also available on WhatsApp 24/7 should we need them. The grounds were tended every day before we were out of bed and the beds linen and towels changed mid way through the week.

Weather a little iffy for our week in the October half term but lots to see and do. The House is in the middle of the island so not too bad to get to see any part of the island if you have a car.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adults and my 2yr old and 5 month old sons had an amazing time at villa belle and would highly recommend it to anyone. From the little details like fresh eggs and figs to the amazing views and attention to detail by the owners. Stelios and Joanna were wonderful hosts and made us feel like nothing would be a problem if we needed anything,whilst leaving us in peace to enjoy there beautiful villa. The villa's decor is of a very high standard and its location is beautiful ( a vehicle is recommended though ). We would like to thank stelios and Joanna for a great holiday and all the things such as pushchairs, high chairs, baby cots and stair gates that made a family holiday that bit easier for us. The only negative any of our group would offer was that the mattresses were very hard, but that certainly won't stop us from booking this villa again. 5 stars.. looking forward to going back x

Great quiet large family home overlooking the sea

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great host, no complaints at all. Pool, spa, game room, BBQ, indoor and outdoor entertaining. It has it all. We were 8, House can hold 10 comfortably. Close to town, great local fish market just up the hill and Lidl grocery just down the hill.. 5 stars for the house and the etouri team i.e.. Kostas, Sophia, and the owners Joanna and her husband were all 5 stars as well that helped with anything needed. Very nice.. Cliff & Melissa

For us, the reflect holiday

  • 5 of 5

A family holiday for my grown up children and 2 grandchildren. We all needed to relax. The villa is simply wonderful. Spacious, stylish and with every facility, spotless and comfortable. It's even better than the pictures on their website, We all loved it. Felt like being millionaires for a week. The view terrific, the pool perfect, lots of places to eat, sit, relax, talk. We played table tennis, pool and used the gym. Supermarkets down the road. Visitors will definitely need a car.

The owners and their rental agents were most helpful and friendly. The pool and gardens were kept in perfect order daily, though unobtrusively. We were asked if there was anything that would make our holiday better...we mentioned that some music would be good. The next day a music system arrived! We had one of the best holidays ever.

Sooooooo Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most amazing stay at the the Gorgeous Villa Belle. I cannot fault anything, the villa and setting is so lovely. Kostas and his team and the owners could not do enough to help and make you feel welcome, they were brilliant. The Villa is very well equipped and so many little details included that made it extra special. I have already recommended to all my friends.

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').
