Nos jours heureux à Villabelle

  • 5 of 5

Une maison parfaite pour le farniente ou les retrouvailles entre amis et famille. Confort, entretien, vue magique, tout a été très bien pensé dans la maison, proximité de tout : (restos, sorties, visites, shopping...). Des hôtes délicieux qui savent ce que l'accueil veut dire : que d'attentions pour faire en sorte que vos vacances soient inoubliables ! Et c'est réussi, nous gardons le meilleur souvenir de Joanna et Stellios et de notre séjour dans leur belle maison. Un grand merci pour tout ! nous n'oublierons pas et mieux, nous reviendrons !

Luxurious villa with great facilities and views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 fabulous days at the beautiful Villa Belle and enjoyed ourselves so much that we were all sad to leave.

We were a group of 6 (2 families with 2 teenage children). We were met by the villa owners Stelios and Joanna on our arrival, even though our flight was late at night, they were really friendly and welcoming. They had been shopping for us and left us some complimentary drink and food.

When we first arrived we were stunned by how spacious and luxurious Villa Belle is (the photos do not do it justice). It is no exaggeration to say that it is breath-taking. Internally the villa is decorated to a high specification and is extremely well equipped. The size of the villa could easily have catered for a larger party. The addition of the games room/gym was a great bonus for us and the kids. We have stayed in a lot of villas and we felt that the outside space and facilities was the best we have encountered so far. The gardens are beautifully landscaped and there are so many seating areas that we struggled to use them all in our 10 days. The swimming pool was a good size and was perfect for cooling off on hot days. The Jacuzzi added to the luxury feel of our stay. It was so fantastic to sit in the Jacuzzi and admire the view of Rethymno day and night.

Stelios attended the gardens and pool on a daily basis to make sure it was perfect for our use. He came early in the morning and his attendance never felt intrusive. Joanna and Kostas the villa manager were available by WhatsApp and text us to make sure we were having a lovely holiday. Kostas was very helpful with the arrangements for our car hire.

The local village has good amenities with a bakery, shops, tavernas and even a Lidl. The villa is very well located being in the centre of the island. It only took 10 minutes to get to Rethymno by car which was brilliant. The national road was nearby allowing easy access to other areas of Crete, but far enough away from the villa to prevent any noise.

We all loved our stay and we look forward to visiting again soon.

Stunning Villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at Villa Belle, could not fault anything about the villa at all. The owners are fantastic and offer such a wonderful personal service and nothing was too much trouble! The outside area is just fantastic and we wish we had been able to stay longer!

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

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').
