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.

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.

Great family villa, George and his family are lovely people who made us feel very welcome
This is a great villa, set well back from the road through the village so completely quiet and secluded. The villa is as nice inside as it looks on the website and everything is very clean. The private pool was (just about) warm enough to swim in, even in mid April. We ordered dinner from George’s mum for a couple of evenings and it was excellent. George contacted us a few days before we arrived to tell us it would be a public holiday when we arrived and offered to get some shopping in for us, which was very helpful. All in all, thoroughly recommended.
Wonderful peaceful place
Lovely peaceful place,can't fault it had everything you needed,the hosts were fantastic,to meeting & greeting and making sure everything was ok,plus making us a lovely cheese cake which went down well,all in all fantastic can't wait to go again...
It's a perfect place for a perfect vacation! Villa Myrtia is really all what you need on a vacation. Location is magnificent, there are a lot of diffrent activities, and yet in a peacefull surrounding. Our hosts George, Maria, Magda i Katarina are the best! You won't notice them until you'll need them.
In short, far away from our house, we felt like home.
Villa fantastic, owners most welcoming and helpful, location excellent - a great place to stay
Standard of villa exceptional. The owners met us on our arrival, which was very late evening, showed us around and then welcomed us in true Greek style with our first taste of Raki and Cretan biscuits! They were helpful yet unobtrusive - brilliant hosts. We came back from a day out to find a lovely Cretan dessert in the fridge courtesy of George's Mum - we know why he lives at home! Whenever we had any queries George responded immediately and the quality of information available both in the villa and from George himself via email was exceptional.
The village is lovely - very Greek and not touristy which suited us very well. The quality of food in local tavernas was very good and we also had some great meals in Rethymno. A great location to get to Rethymno and other places. We will definitely return and will happily spread the word about this great villa. Thanks to George and his family for a very special holiday - oh, and Derek the cat is no trouble as he wanders in and out of the villa!
Brilliant villa and great location
I would just like to say to George and his mum Maria, thank you for making our stay in Crete so lovely! We could not fault the villa in anyway. The location is great. It is situated very closely to a bakery, supermarket and restaurants. We hired a car and went to the beach every day, as it is only a ten minute ride away. The villa was very clean and had all what you needed. It was very private and our two 9 year olds loved the pool! George and his mum Maria, are great hosts and are always there if needed via the telephone. We have booked again for next July already, this time for 10 days not 7. If you are thinking about booking this Villa, you will not regret it. It is so peaceful and pretty! Thank you both again for being great hosts and letting us stay in your wonderful Villa. We will see you again soon.
One of the best places we stayed on trip to Greece
First, George, thank you for your wonderful hospitality.
George was super responsive in helping us get the reservation set up. He was also helpful in guiding us to the house. He was very attentive and was always available for questions throughout our stay.
The house itself is in a great location. Great launching point to see the sights.
But also great if you just wanted to hang out. The house was super clean (new), and very comfortable to stay. I just wish we stayed longer.
Out of all the places we stayed, this was one of the best!
The 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.
