We stayed at Calergi Residence for two weeks June/July 2018. It's a little gem. Manolis and his mother were very attentitive chatting with us every morning over delicious local delicacies and coffee for breakfast. A lovely personal touch. The residence is beautifully styled giving a cosy feel to all guests. There are a handful of lovely restaurants in the town all within easy walking distance. The main town of Rethimno is a 15 minute drive away and there are fantastic beaches 20/25 mins away. We foundly remember this holiday and wouldn't hesitate to revisit. Calergi Residence is highly recomemded.

We had the good fortune to come across this amazeing boutique hotel. It is like a sanctuary . Very nicely and creatively decorated. Manolis and his mother are very kind and generous hosts. Providing delicious coffee and treats at breakfast time. They are always available to help and offer advise but never invasive . I loved this place and highly recommend it I would love to return. Forgot to mention the little village is charming with some of the best taverns for eating traditional food in the whole of Crete.

Manolis and Phillitsa really make you feel as if you are guests in their home as both are so helpful and welcoming. Calergi residence is located away from the main street in the village of Atsipopoulo, where you can also park. The residence has rooms facing into two courtyards and also over the swimming pool. Our room consisted of a downstairs area with a kitchenette and an upstairs with bed, bathroom, balcony, safe and tv. The kitchenette had a microwave, fridge and plug-in electric hob. It was fine for making breakfast and snacks but I probably wouldn't have cooked a main meal there - but then Manolis was able to tell us about some great local taverna's which were very reasonably priced for evening meals. The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. The bathroom was clean but sometimes the drain smelled which Manolis explained was something to do with the town drainage system so we covered it over with the bath mat. I wouldn't recommend this room for anyone with mobility problems as the stairs are steep. You can eat anywhere you like in the court yards or up on the roof terrace. We didn't get round to using the pool which is small but looked very clean and inviting on a hot day. Sun loungers were available for use along with clothes driers and Manolis even took my washing and did it in the washing machine at no extra cost. Atsipopoulo is about a 15 minute drive from the main town of Rethymno which has lots of shops and restaurants and a beach - although we drove to Bali for beaches which is about twenty five minutes away by car.

In June 2018 we stayed at Calergi for the second time. I was in contact with Manolis when booking and everything was very fine. When we arrived we had the same room/appartment as the first time. Number 9 just in front of the small pool. Driving up to Atsipopoulo, parking the car behind the hotel and entering the gate, reception and garden was soo good, and when we entered room number 9 again, I felt like coming home. The rooms are different and all very beautifully decorated! The space outside by the pool, the "garden" and the roof terrace with a view to the sea and all the roof tops in Atsipopolou, are so nice. There were some olive rings, cookies and raki in the room for us. In the morning you can get coffee, cookies and other specialities at the reception area. You can sit down and enjoy it there or take it back to your balcony, terrace or room. Manolis runs this hotel together with his mother. They are both very nice and friendly and they do everything to make your stay perfect. "Mum" treated us with a local special cheese, which she put in our fridge so we could have it later. Every morning they both do a little walk around and speak with the guests. You will find fresh flowers at the outdoor areas and maybe in the room. If you have a car it will take you 10 minutes to go to the old town in Rethymno (park by the castle and you are just on the edge of the old town). When we go to the beach we drive past Petra towards Chania (about 15 minutes) and stop at a place with a taverna (including a playground for children) and the sunbeds on the beach are free. We love the little green taverna at the corner in Atsipopolou (O Manolis) and the place on the church square. At Manolis there is no menu, his wife cooks a lot of small dishes, which are served one after the other. By the church you eat sticks, pork, lamb or chicken, greek salad and fries. Two can eat and drink for about EUR 30 - 35 in total. Calergi Residence with Manolis and his mum is simply my favourite place in Crete and I so much look forward to going there again.

We stayed here for a week on our first visit to Crete and our host Manolis made us feel so welcome. It is a little collection of unique and individually stylish departments set around a central courtyard. Every morning we were welcomed by Manolis who served fresh coffee and tea with various sweet treats under the shade of the lime tree. This was an ideal opportunity to ask advice on where best to visit and to say hello to the other guests. Although we travelled as a couple this would be an ideal place to stay with friends or family as there are lots of communal outdoor areas where you can gather for drinks or food and there is even a barbecue on the large roof terrace. Atsipopoulo is a small village with a couple of restaurants, a pizzeria, pharmacy, bakery and supermarket. The bustling town of Rethymno is only a short distance away. 10 minutes by car 8-10 euros by taxi. The neighbouring village of Prines has a wonderful taverna - Giannikos which is less than 5 minutes by car. Our favourite beach at Georgioupoli is just 20 minutes by car. This town also has nice shops and restaurants as well as a lovely sandy beach. If you want to be close to Rethymno but like some peace and quiet this is the perfect place to stay and being just a couple of minutes from the national road made it very easy to get everywhere.
