Why Filitsa Kalergi chose Rethymnon area

Because this property is really adorable. Not only the quiet village atmosphere but also the kind friendly people living there. Climate is dry and healthy for asthma and more. Old houses coming of the past, here and there.

Most of the houses have a unique beauty with patios, arched doors, roofs and terraces. You can feel concentrated on them the Venetian art, the oriental opulence as well as Cretan tradition. Atsipolpoulo is a very interesting village. The houses have a unique beauty with patios, arched doors, roofs and terraces. You can feel on them concentrated Venetian art, oriental opulence and Cretan tradition.

The strategic importance of the village gave rise to many battles during the Ottoman occupation and to its eventual destruction by the Turks in 1866; many villagers earned a reputation in this period as brave warriors. The village was also the birthplace of several important men of letters, such as G. Chortatsis, author of the Cretan Renaissance dramas The Sacrifice of Abraham and Erophili.

To this day Atsipopoulo remains one of the most beautiful villages on Crete, not least because the inhabitants were quick to realise the value of its architectural features.

These have been respected, preserved and made such good use of that the village retains the appearance and grandeur of Venetian times.

Visitors are sure to be enchanted by the neighbourhoods, with their courtyards and doorways bearing dates from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as by the village's churches and other buildings.

Accommodation, dining and entertainment facilities are all available. In short, visitors attracted to Atsipopoulo are guaranteed to leave the area as the finest ambassadors Cretan tourism could wish for.
