Great Villa. Great Location. Perfect owner service

  • 5 of 5
Villa Myrtia is a high quality villa with 2 double and 2 twin bedrooms and a large living-dining space, all air conditioned (quiet!), for the hot evenings.
Our London family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers came for our second visit to this villa in August 2014 and we have recommended it to others in our family.
Location 2 km outside Rethymnon (and 200 metres higher), it is excellent if you have a car which can be parked on the secure site. You are quickly on the road to the hills or the main coast road or a 10 minute drive and you are parked by the Rethymnon fort.
All shopping can be done by walking at most 300 metres from the villa - excellent bakery, several supermarkets with in-store butchers, pharmacy.
It is not suitable for ambulant-disabled (doorstep and bathrooms).
The pool is a constant 1.5 metres deep, level deck with direct access from the house, (not good for non-swimming small kids).
The villa has a guide to local attractions that gets updated and the visitor book has plenty of information from guests.
Web-based guides (Trip Advisor and maybe this site...!) etc, were found very misleading and we used the Rough Guide which is written by people who do know what they are talking about. There is plenty to do in Crete! The kids were bored out of their minds by monasteries and churches but still enjoyed their two weeks in Villa Myrtia...!
You don't come to Crete for fusion or haute-cuisine...in the village late-night taverna eating-out is typical basic Cretan and inexpensive, (less than half the usual Rethymno restaurant price). But there are really great/fun places in nearby hill villages - Episcopi, Argiroupolis, Kournas, the Lake etc and even East along the front of Reth.
Enjoy it!

Even better than Charter!

  • 5 of 5
As previous Reviews I also can confirm that the Villa Myrtia is even better than both descriptions and photos at HomeAways prospect. The hospitality from the family Kokkinakis is top of the line! Always available and perfect ground service. The town of Atsipopoulo is small, but everything of need is round the corner, ATM, Bakery, restaurants and super markets! Whit rental car everything’s is close, even the beach, only 10 min away.
We can highly recommend the villa of Elia and Myrtia and also the hospitality from the family Kokkinakis!

We will be back! Family Pettersson

Lovely Villa in a quaint village

  • 5 of 5
Clean, well maintained villa in a quaint Cretan town. It was nice to be away from the business of Rethymnon but also close enough to visit without a long drive. The owners do a very good job of communicating before, during and after the stay and booking could not have been easier. It was lovely to be so close to the grocery stores and also the many tavernas in the neighbourhood. Our favourite shop was the "Rose patisserie" with great pasteries and ice cream. We also appreciated the parking spot available within the villa compound since finding parking is not easy in Astipopoulo. My only complaint would be that the frames of the bed are squeaky and with any movement my spouse and I would wake each other up. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a villa with a private pool.

Wonderful time, great villa

  • 5 of 5
Everything exceeded expectations. The owners were wonderful and always available. No worries whatsoever. The house was better than what is shown in the web site and the pool was fantastic. The second story balcony was large and with views of the village. The village of Atsipopoulo is a good choice. It has plenty of pubs and services located right next door to the villa. It is a small town away from the hustle and bustle of Rethymnon, yet a short cab or bus ride away. Everyone had a wonderful time, and I highly recommend this place. Everything was perfect.

Car: recommended

It is 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 prefecture 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.
