“Outstanding”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2014

We stayed in Palazzo di Acqua for one month August/September 2014. The house is amazing, extremely well equipped and finished, exactly as advertised. The roof terrace is spectacular and also very well equipped. Perfect place for a bbq or evening meal as the sun sets. The house has a lot of history, dating back hundreds of years and is expertly rebuilt/renovated maintaining all of its character. It's luxurious and feels very grand, with high ceilings, beautiful windows and lots of other original features. The house is in the village and everything is an easy walk away. We really enjoyed some of the local tavernas and restaurants in Rythemno are close by, either by car or bus. Overall, we would rate this as an excellent choice as a base to explore more of the island. Would also point out that the owners were very helpful and very reputable.

“Wow!”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2013

A really interesting place to stay. It is exactly as described, roof terrace is beautiful with amazing views. Kitchen (and 2nd kitchen on 1st floor!) are very well equiped and bedrooms nice and comfortable. Probably not suitable for young children or people with disabilities because of the stairs. Altho' the villa has its own parking space our advice would be to park in small car park off main village road (near atm) and walk up to the villa. Atsipopolou has an atm, supermarkets and a nice cafe-bar but you do need a car.

“Exceptional holiday house in Rethymno”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

I stayed at Palazzo d'Acqua with my husband and our two sons (ages 5 and 2) and my two brothers. The house is located in the centre of Atsipopoulo, a short 15 minute drive from the centre of Rethymno. It was very clean, well equiped as far as the kitchen goes, the rooms are very spacious. We loved the terrace - great for star-gazing at night. The owners were very helpful and friendly, were waiting for us when we arrived and gave useful suggestions for restaurants etc in the area. The two flights of stairs were a bit of a concern given that we have young children, so families with young children should be prepared to supervise the children carefully - but we didn't find that to be a problem at all. Also, I would advise people to park at the nearby square and move their stuff rather than trying to park outside the property, as the road outside it is very very narrow and just fit our rental car - backing out of it was a bit of a problem. Overall, we had a great stay at Palazzo d'Acqua and would highly recommend it to anyone.
