About the property

Atsipopoulo villas

Atsipopoulo villas are approved by Greek Tourism Organization with license number: 1041K91002986701.

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.

As my family is the owner of the two beautiful villas, Elia and Myrtia, i have started organizing renting our villas to guests all over the word.

Our aim is to help our guests to have a relaxing holiday at our villa and help them explore our beautiful island.

Beautiful villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Myrtia for one week with our family of 5 and we absolutely loved every minute of our stay. The house is spacious, clean and very well decorated. We were lucky enough to have good weather at the beginning of October so we spent a lot of time lounging around the beautiful pool. The property is secured but still in the middle of Atsipopoulo with restaurants, supermarkets and a bakery in walking distance.

George was a perfect host. When we arrived we were greeted by him with raki and some delicious biscuits and throughout our holiday it was very easy to get in touch with him. He helped us booking an organized tour to the gorge of Samaria and even brought us a homemade dessert one day. Thank you for your hospitality and generosity!

If we come back to Crete we will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful House, Great Location, Superb Service

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a weeks stay here with 3 of my girlfriends. This house is very spacious so there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. This house could comfortably fit 2 families. We arrived late our first evening and had requested dinner be prepared for us. George's mother prepared a wonderful Moussaka dish along with Greek salad and bread (and let's not forget the Raki !!). There was enough Moussaka, that we snacked on leftovers all week and still had some left at the end of our week.

I cannot say enough about the kindness and generosity of George and his family !! He was quick to respond to my numerous emails prior to our arrival. During our stay a couple of my friends decided to ship some items home and George took care of this for us.

This was our first time in Crete, so we were unsure of the best location to stay. This house is very centrally located for easy drives (about an hour) to Iraklion (Heraklion) and Chania. If you are arriving my boat into Rethymno, I would recommend that you pre-arrange a pick up. There are plenty of taxis, but you have to walk a ways unless they are pre-arranged and can pull right up to the boat.

We are planning a return trip to Crete already and will definitely stay here again !!

Thanks again to George and his lovely family for making our vacation even more memorable !

We had a fantastic fifteen days in villa Myrtia and villa Elia. Perfect for families with kids or just good friends. George and his family was the perfect hosts. The descriptions on the HomeAway website was very accurate and all our expectations were fulfilled. We have no complains and would very much like to come back sometime. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Perfect big family villa

  • 5 of 5

With two families of two children each this villa suited us perfectly. Everything was in order and the villa really lived up to the description on HomeAway. George with family has done a tremendous job in building a relaxing oasis in the village. George as a host is friendly and helpful and is always on stand-by if anything is needed. We really enjoyed staying in the villa and the picturesque village of Atsipopoulo and can definitely recommend Villa Myrtia to anyone looking for the perfect alternative to the noisy hotels along the beaches. We will be back for sure.

Tout simplement exceptionnel

  • 5 of 5

Superbe villa, belle et super fonctionnelle, exceptionnellement bien entretenue.

Idéalement située, en plein centre du village et à proximité de tous les commerces mais complètement au calme.

Idéalement située aussi pour se rendre sur les plages où sur les sites touristiques.

Et pour couronner le tout, Georges et Maria, exceptionnels, toujours disponibles, avec toujours le sourire et très attentionnés pour rendre le séjour de leurs hôtes parfait tout en restant très discrets.

Merci à vous, on reviendra et vous recommandera.
