The Village

Home > Location

The villa is located just next to the village “Atsipopoulo”, a well known village which has flourished in the last 10 years and now is actually a small town in itself and a suburb of Rethymno.

With an abundance of amenities Atsipopoulo nowadays has all kinds of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and services. The villa's positioning is ideal for people who relish a quiet place to relax but wish to be close to everything.
Furthermore it is a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only 2 minutes away.

Atsipopoulo is one of the most picturesque villages of Crete. Located 5 km west of Rethymnon at an altitude of 160 meters, with 2,500 inhabitants (census 2001). It is built around the center of Northern Crete. The village was strategically important and therefore at Atsipopoulo took place many battles against the Turks. The houses are built one next to other and turned into a fortress in times of need. The residents realized the architectural value of their houses, and respected and kept them. So Atsipopoulo today retains its traditional look and elegance of Venetian times. 

Crete is a life-changing island. It’s a place in which you feel you belong and in which you’ll always return. Welcome to Villa Belle.
