Overview

About the property

Three bedroom apartment friendly to all guests

We welcome you to the brand new Theania Apartment!

The apartment – amenities:

We tried to create a comfortable, modern, pleasant and welcoming space and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The apartment is located on the first floor and has a total floor area of 110 m² and has 60 m² of perimeter verandas with a view of the sea. It is built in a two-storey building which consists of two more apartments on the south side.

Entering the apartment, we find the dining room and the living room equipped with the necessary furniture and a 42-inch smart tv capable of connecting to the Internet, with usb ports so you can watch your favourite films.

To the right of the apartment’s entrance, we find the fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need for your stay. All areas have a view of the sea.

The same area has access to the east veranda which is about 40 m² and there you will find a dining table for six people where you can enjoy your breakfast or a glass of wine late in the evening overlooking the lights of Rethymno and the Fortezza fortress.

Northwest of the living room, there is the bathroom, and three bedrooms, one of which has its own wc. All bedrooms have access to the northern balcony and are not adjacent to the neighbouring apartments, thus ensuring necessary privacy in the evening hours.

The first bedroom has a double bed. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third one has a single bed. A baby cot can be placed in the apartment as well, for the families that want one.

The bedrooms are also equipped with everything you will need for your stay,

(bed linen, hair dryer, iron, ironing board, hangers, etc.).

In the living room, the two three-seater sofas can accommodate two more people.

There is free Wi-Fi inside and outside the whole apartment.

There is a solar water heater for 24-hour hot water as long as there is sunshine and an electric water heater for hot water during the winter.

The apartment also has cooling and heating air conditioning as well as a heat pump for heating in winter.

Opposite the building, there is a parking space which you can use during your stay.

Location

The apartment is located at the beginning of the Violi Charaki area. At a distance of 200 - 500 metres from the flat, you can find all the shops you may need (super market, bakery, dry cleaners, hairdresser, chemist, butcher, flower shop, etc.).

We think that the position is ideal because it gives you the ability to have direct access to any part of the County of Rethymno that you want and to the other counties since Rethymno is located in the centre of Crete. This is the reason why many visitors make it the base for their stay and visit the other counties, too, during their holidays.

We are located just 450 metres from the junction that joins the Rethymno-Chania highway and the Rethymno-Heraklion highway. The same junction leads to the city of Rethymno and its city centre is 3.5 klm distant. Also, Rethymno’s central beach is 4.5 klm from the apartment.

Indicative distances by car, for points that may be of interest to you.

Chania Airport: 64 klm (1 hour)

Heraklion Airport: 85.4 klm (1 hour and 10 minutes).

Town Centre - Rethymno old town: 3.5 klm

Atsipopoulos shops – taverns: 1 - 1.3 klm

Petré Beach: 8.5 klm

Ιούλιος 2017



L'appartamento è nuovissimo, molto ampio e arredato con gusto e attenzione. Maria ci ha accolto con acqua fresca, vino e dolci. La posizione, appena fuori Rethymnon è comoda per muoversi nella regione e consente di raggiungere agevolmente (in auto) la città, il cui Forte veneziano si può ammirare dallo splendido terrazzo. Grazie, per l'ospitalità, Maria!

Atsipopoulo is a village in the prefecture of Rethymno located approximately 7 km west of the city of Rethymno, after you pass the Panorama and the Violi Haraki.

About the origins of the village’s name, there is one version saying that it comes from Latin Aci populo (rough people) because of the harshness of its residents back in the times, while another version explains that “atsipopoulo” means a small fortified village. The prevailing, however, is the one that says that Atsipopoulo comes from the word Atsipas that has its roots in the Arabic word chatzip, meaning porter or watchman. The Saracens of the period of the Arab rule used Ethiopian slaves as the guards of the palace, who were called Hatsipades or Atsipades, just like the Byzantines used to do later. Part of the troops of Nikiforos Fokas, who arrived after the liberation of the island from the Arabs, were Atsipades, Bulgarian and Armenian soldiers who had settled in Crete, and villages were named after them, such as Atsipopoulo, Atsipades, Armeni, Vulgaro, Varvaroi and more.

The location of the village was of strategic importance and, therefore, it had participated in many revolutions, but in 1866 was destroyed by the Turks, while in the 20th century it participated in the resistance against the Germans.

The Atsipopoulo, a birth place of Georgios Hortatsis, the poet who wrote “Sacrifice of Abraham” and “Erofili”, was one of the richest villages of Rethymno thanks to the making of small clay pottery utensils, the carobs cultivation (for fodder and sugar production) and the acorn production until the 1960s. A big part of the area is covered with a unique Cretan oak forest.

Moreover, the church of Agia Zoni (Holy Cincture), the protector of the oak tree, was built to rescue the oak forest from the illness that struck the trees in 1885. After the procession inside the forest, the illness had stopped. Other churches of the village are the Assumption of Virgin – Mesochoriani, Agios Ioannis Chrysostomos, a structure of the Byzantine family of Hortatzis in 12th century and Agios Antonios inside a cave at the west side of a gorge at site Zouridi. The main church of the village is two-nave dedicated to Agios Eleftherios and Agios Charalambos, while there are many other churches.

From the 1990s onwards, Atsipopoulo has been developed as a suburb of the city of Rethymno, maintaining the Venetian character mixed with the Cretan architecture. Today, Atsipopoulo attracts tourists during summer season, as it has all the necessary facilities such as small hotels, restaurants with local food, cafes and shops. Since 2014 the race Nikiforeios Road has been conducted in honor of Nikiforos Fokas and passes through the village.

The Violi Haraki in the prefecture of Rethymno is a village located shortly before the Atsipopoulo, approximately 6 km west of the city of Rethymno.

Built at an altitude of 120 meters, the Violi Haraki was named so after a boy, who seated on a rock (haraki) and played his lyre, notifying the residents of the village of the approaching Turks.

In 1889, there was a harsh battle given in Violi Haraki between the Turks and the residents of Atsipopoulo and not only, who tried to prevent the Turks from entering the area. A strange thing about this battle, which resulted in the retreat of the Greeks, was that it took place during the Ramadan, an Islamic month of fasting.

The Violi Haraki, which is actually an extension of the city of Rethymno, is the perfect place to admire the Fortress of Fortezza because of the site it is located on. It also has a direct access to NRAC (North Road Axis of Crete), which makes it a fast passage leading to the major urban centers of Crete, Chania and Heraklion.

Rethymno prefecture’s archaeological sites are an integral piece of its land and inseparable from the historical memory of its inhabitants.

Archaeological sites that highlight the long history of the place, its importance and prosperity until its decadence are scattered in the mountain range of Psiloritis, such as Zominthos, Ancient Eleftherna and Ancient Axos, or inside the city of Rethymno, such as the Fortezza Fortress, even in the villages surrounding it, such as Ancient Lappa and Late-Minoan Necropolis of Armeni.

The archaeological sites reveal us the rich Minoan history of the area, the history that made this area known all over the world, the commercial relations of the inhabitants of that time and ceremonial rituals and traditions. The archaeological sites’ excavations have revealed important findings with pieces of frescoes, delicately painted vases made of precious materials, jewelry and even entire buildings, archaeological remains dating from the Stone Age to the Roman and early Christian times. Indeed, the range of archaeological sites is so enormous and unexplored that the excavations continue up to this day, being an inexhaustible source of information about the lifestyle, social organization and function of the Minoan civilization.
