Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Rethymnon area - Atsipopoulo villas

Each villa has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and can accomodate 8 persons.

A few kilometers outside Rethymno, in the village of Atsipopoulo, we see the construction of two guesthouses, 'Elia' and 'Myrtia'.

The owners have respected the traditional architecture of Crete and have used indigenous materials such as stone and wood. However, they have constructed a very comfortable house, as it is the most important point of holidays.

They await you to experience the Cretan hospitality, tradition and history, as well as pleasurable moments of relaxation and serenity.

The villas locate at the center of village Atsipopoulo, which can meet all your first needs. Supermarket, bakery, groceries and butchery shop, cofee shop, restaurants, ATM and pharmacy are all in walking distance (200 metres from the entrance of the villas). However, as you come in from the entrance of the villas, the whole atmosphere changes, as our villas locate inside the nature in a peaceful and ideal for relaxing enviroment. The center of Rethymno is also 5 kilometres away and 10 minutes drive.

Each villa is concstructed in maisonette style, measures 150 m2 and has a private swimming pool and balcony. Moreover,it can host 8 persons in 4 bedrooms. Two of them have a double bed and the rest two have two single beds each.

On the ground floor you will find the living area with a fireplace, a full-equipped kitchen and a dining area. It also includes the first two bedrooms, one bathroom and a lavatory.

The top floor consists of two bedrooms, a bathroom, a lavatory and a balcony with a view of the traditional village nearby and the nature. All the rooms are air-conditioned.

Each villa is equipped with Satellite television, DVD player, CD Player and radio, Coffee machinet, Microwave, Toaster, Dishwasher, Clothes washer, Deposit box, Hair-dryer and Baby cot.

The exterior of the each villa includes a 27 sq.metres private swimming pool, a dining table and seats for all the 8 persons, as well as 8 sunbeds in order you can enjoy the cretan sun. In addition, each villa has its own barbeque facilities for your personal use.

The location of the villas are ideal for exploring our whole island. Located in the center of the north part of Crete, only 3 kilometres from the highway provides easy access from the local airports (Heraklion and Chania) and the opportunity to visit from the big cities of the island to the smallest beaches in both north and south part of Crete.

Guests will have access and full privacy to all areas indoor and outdoor!

We will wait for you in the villa for your arrival (despite the time, even after midnight) in order to help you with the house details and give you as much informations as you want about the area, taverns, shops, places and beaches that you have to visit!

Also we will clean the villa and change towels and linen every 3 days!

Finally we will be there for your departure for our last thank you!

We will be also reachable on our cell phone and e-mails 24/7!

Our home locates only 1 kilometer from the villa, so we will be able to come in a few minutes at the villa ofr anything that you will need.

The unique benefits of villas Elia & Myrtia according to my opinion and my contact with the previous guests are:

-The close distance to the services (2 minutes walking) of the local village in addition to the privacy and the peaceful enviroment that our villa secure, is definitely our villas's strong advantage.

-The large swimming pool and the peaceful exterior enviroment will take you away from the everyday's problems. In addition children will for sure love it and will spend most of the day at it.

-Each villa is designed absolutely for your holidays. It has logically big rooms, all the necessary facilities and comfort togehter combined with the traditional architecture of Crete. And don't forget that all rooms are air-conditioned.

-The villas are only 3 kilometres from the interchange of Atsipopoulo, which provides access to the highway of Crete. As a result, villa Myrtia has easy access from the two big airports of Crete (Chania and Heraklion) and also is ideal for exploring the whole island of Crete (which has a lot of worth visiting places), as it is in the middle of the island.

-The city of Rethymno is only 10 minutes drive from our villa, so having a walk at the old picturesque small roads of it, it is more than easy.

-Don't forget to explore the old part of village Atsipopoulo. Its beauties are not so famous, but with a small walk at its graphic neighbours and also the contact wit the local people will impress you.

-Our family lives only 1 kimometer of the villa, so we are available to come at any time and nothing is too difficult for us. Our first rule is that all of our guests must depart from our villa with a smile and a wish for a comeback.

Transfer from and to our villa is rather than easy.

Even if you don't have a car, there is a bus stop only 200 metres from our villa and the bus will transfer you quickly at Rethymno city. However, also the taxi to Rethymno city will cost you a little amount, as the town is very close.

LOVELY VILLA WITH THE WOW FACTOR

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Villa Elia in late April/early May'16 for 2 weeks. It is a really special villa, beautifully furnished and built to exacting standards. The village of Atsipopolou, where the villa sits, is a really nice village, with most things on your doorstep, chemist, ATM, bakers, supermarket and the village also has 3 restaurants. The villa itself has been well designed, especially for 2 families with children, as the ground and top floors both have a double-bedded room and a twin-bedded room, each floor sharing a bathroom. I would describe it as a perfect place to chill and unwind. In essence, no expense has been spared in making this property something really special. The Greek family, who own and manage the villa, and live locally, are excellent hosts and will try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They really care about their guests and will do their utmost to help you in any way they can. Thank you George, Magda and Mary, for making our holiday unforgettable.

A PERFECT SCORE

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Elia was perfect in every respect. First of all, the owners, Maria and her son George, were excessively warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. As an example, they went as far as arranging our car rental in Crete!

The villa is a gem: it is beautiful, spacious, comfortable and fully equipped. In addition, within a few hundred meters from the villa, one can find all required businesses : supermarket, bakery, ATM, without forgetting some excellent «tavernas»!

Furthermore, because of its central location, Villa Elia is an ideal base to explore and visit the whole Island of Crete.

In summary and in conclusion, I recommend without any reservation, Villa Elia to anyone who plans to take a vacation on the Island of Crete.

Fabulous villa in an amazing setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a great villa - ideally situated in a lovely Greek village with all the amenities that you may need. There is a supermarket, bakery, ice cream parlour, cafe, a couple of restaurants all within a couple of minutes of the villa. If that is not enough Rethymon is only a short drive away with everything you could possible need. George and his family could not have been more helpful. The villa is well appointed and the pool was great. We had a fabulous holiday in Crete and will definitely return.

The two villas are built almost in the center of Northern Crete in Atsipopoulo Village, 5 km from Rethymno city.

The village of Atsipopoulo is strategically placed and therefore it has seen many battles against the Turks. The houses are closely built to each other and are easily converted to a fortress in times of need. The residents realized the architectural value of their homes and respected and up kept them. In this way Atsipopoulo today upholds the traditional look and sophistication of Venetian years. Its neighborhoods, its churches and spellbinding alleys will charm the visitor. Walking through the side streets they will find themselves under Venetian galleries and arches.

Rethymno

Welcome to Rethymnon, the capital of the perfecture of the same name. It is located on the north Mediterranean coast, between the prefectures of Chania and Heraklion. The town of Rethymnon still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, small Venetian harbour and narrow streets.

The Venetian Loggia and the municipal gardens are also some sites that you don't want to miss. Arcadi monastery is a place which reminds to all Cretans and any visitor the struggle for freedom against Turkish conqueror. It is a historical monument which attracts many visitors every year. The town of Rethymnon offers great amusements as small bars near the seaside, clubs, restaurants and many small picturesque taverns.

People of Rethymnon as all Cretans, are very hospitable people and they will try to make you feel like your home. You will also have the chance to taste the delicious local products!

There is a mountainous area in the centre of the prefecture, from where you have access to the highest peak of the mountain Psiloritis . Wonderful exotic beaches decorate the prefecture, where you can forget your worries and relax in a luxurious hotel or any accommodation of your taste.
