Guest access

“Calergi Residence is in the small local Cretan village of Atsipopoulo just a short 5 minute drive away from the lovely resort of Rethymno. The hotel apartments are just like the photos shown but to walk around the small complex you can really appreciate its quirky charm and homely feel. It has lots of small terraces and balconies to each apartments with a lovely small pool, a rooftop terrace and all are tastefully decorated with comfort in mind, having everything from kitchen facilities to comfy beds. Manolis and Filitsa are so very friendly and welcoming and are also available to see attend to any needs or information/advice needed. They are also there to greet you in the morning with a free breakfast with fresh coffee, juice, a cereal, a selection of cakes and biscuits. The place itself is ideally located set back from the local village road, with a supermarket virtually 2 mins walk away, a cafe opposite, a local bakery with freshly baked bread, a gift shop, a pharmacy, a patisserie, and local Cretan restaurants with fantastic authentic food mezes at comparatively low prices to that in Rethymno. Certainly one of the best personal places we have stayed. Thanks for having us Manolis and Filitsa.” Rachel.

Interaction with guests

IDEAL is a great base for exploring the whole of Crete, as it's pretty central but only a mile from the beach. The village of Atsipopoulo is pretty and quaint, yet it has plenty of local amenities, including two authentic Greek restaurants within walking distance. The food at both was delicious! Everything about this accommodation focuses on comfort, relaxation and making the guests feel at home. The owners treated us like long lost family, and nothing was too much to ask. The beds were super comfy, the rooms all individual and unique and full of added luxuries, such as fresh flowers, fluffy robes and slippers, and even complimentary Ouzo and snacks on arrival. The cleaners kept our apartment spotless, with fresh bedding and towels daily. The communal grounds are pristine and beautifully planted with lemon trees and scented flowers, and the view from the rooftop terrace, where you can catch the last few rays of the day, are spectacular! You can do a full 360 of the village rooftops, with the sea, mountains and two pretty churches all visible. A fab place to share a cold bottle of wine and watch the sunset. Although the family offer breakfast, we stuck with Felitsa's complimentary Greek yoghurt, homemade cakes, pastries and fresh brewed coffee that she served from morning to midday. Her cakes are out of this world! We spent 11 nights at Calergi, and when we left, it felt like we were leaving family! The feeling must have been mutual, as all four of us were given little gifts. We will be back!

Other things to note

We were very impressed with the attention to detail in every aspect. Nothing was too much trouble. On the rare occasion there was something missing, it was found without delay. We had all the facilities we needed – a pool, a sunbathing terrace and a variety of quiet spaces to sit. Our accommodation included a good sized bedroom, adequate kitchen space/facilities plus outside seating and dining table. It was scrupulously clean and well furnished. The Calergi Residence is about 3 kilometres from Rethymno and is situated in the quiet village of Atsipopoulo. The village has around four tavernas, together with some other smaller eateries, within walking distance. They produce good quality food. For those who want greater variety in an idyllic setting there is the old town area of Rethymno, which has scores of restaurants and cafes, shops and places of interest. Rethymno is an easy drive away and is a complete contrast to the peaceful village of Atsipopoulo. We recommend this accommodation for those seeking something a little more Cretan than the main tourist attractions of Rethymno. Having said this, for those whose Greek is a little faltering, English is widely spoken and Manolis and his parents (who manage the property) speak it very well indeed. There are a couple of villages within short driving distance offering nice tavernas. Close to the accommodation is a supermarket, a bakery and other small shops. For those wanting partying to the small hours this isn’t the place, but for those looking for a taste of essential Crete this gets pretty close. Although not advertised, we were treated to a very pleasant light self-service breakfast each morning. A very nice welcoming touch. Manolis and his parents are lovely people who offer a warm welcome to visitors. They are anxious to make guests feel at home and make the most of the facilities. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation. Review Submitted: 13 Jul 2017 | Stayed: July 2017
