Description from owner

Description

A few kilometers outside Rethymno, in the village of Atsipopoulo, we see the construction of the guesthouse, 'Villa Elia'.

Villa Elia is one of the two twin- villas of this property, in which you will feel the venetian atmosphere, which is related with the hostory of this island. The name of the guesthouse came from the tree 'Elia', which produces the famous Cretan olive oil.

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.

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

The villa locates at the center of village Atsipopoulo, that 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, each of the villas 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 and a lavatory.

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

The 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 villa has a 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.

“Lovely villa in an authentic setting”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

We were well looked after by the owners who were absolutely charming throughout, from booking to leaving. The villa itself was very nice and clean with a good size very clean, pool. Likes:- Location - you in the the middle of a proper Cretan village, not a tourist hell-hole. You have a small supermarket and bakery just round the corner. Tavernas and good Pizza take-away just a few meters further up the street which were all great. Another, larger supermarket is also within walking distance approx 100m. - Weather - was wall to wall sunshine and mostly hot but not unbearably so. Air-con in the bedrooms was great. - Terrace - lovely views, great to start your evening here with a drink. - Beaches - head south for stunning views and lovely sandy beaches and clear water. Locally there is a nice little shingle, rocky cove at Petre heading west on the highway, only 10 min drive, it is great for snorkelling but beware of the beach bar music! Dislikes - I don't feel any negative feelings towards the holiday but I could point out one or two things that are not clear in the blurb:- - The sister villa's pool is adjacent to this villas, separated by a fence and flowering climbing plants so you do experience noise from the other guests. In our case it did not cause a problem and I think the owners would've 'had words' with them if we had. - There is no shallow end in the pool. - Greek plumbing - it is sadly still the case that you must put your toilet paper into a bin rather than flushing it away. A shock initially but you soon get used to it. - Bathrooms - if you're fully occupied then there's four sharing a bathroom. Could do with an extra shower room/toilet somewhere. All in all it was a wonderful holiday and we had a great time. The local people were so welcoming and we really enjoyed trying all the local dishes in the tavernas. I would certainly recommend to others and would go back there myself.

“Beautiful villa, Fantastic location”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2012

We stayed in the Villa Elia with our parents. Although we had planned to take 2 more people, which meant 2 bedrooms were empty, we were so happy we booked the villa. It is lovely, with a beautiful outdoor eating area at poolside, which is lit at night-time. The villa is beautifully built and decorated and had everything we needed. The owners, Maria and her family, welcomed us warmly and were so attentive to our needs without being intrusive, that it was a pleasure to deal with them. The location of the villa is perfect for people wanting to see something more than tourist resorts and package holiday hotels: it is close (10 min drive) to the old town of Rethymnon, which means it is easy to go there for dinner (€2-3 for car parking at the harbour for the evening, or look around the streets). The village is old and "real": we had the feeling we were the only tourists there. There is a baker, supermarket and a couple of tavernas within 2 minute walk. It is fantastic for day trips around this part of the island to fantastic mountain scenery, little villages and the coast. All in all - perfect!!!

“Fantastic accommodation in great location”

Beautiful villa in a great location to tour the island. A very welcoming family who couldn't do enough to make the stay enjoyable. Thanks a lot.

“Perfect !”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

Very beautiful villa which will allow to stay perfect holiday. The owner, George and his familly, are very friendly. They will can help you to pass good holidays. Nothing wrong with this person and this property. I would explain why i put 4/6 on the cathegory Kitchen&ustensils. Because I have found that is limited in utensils. Little more of pan and sauce pan will be perfect.
