“Truly amazing exculsive hotel”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Casa dell' Aristea was truly amazing. When we stepped inside it was a huge wow! The photos do not do it justice. This individual hotel was so unique and perfect for the disconcerting individual traveller to Crete. Located in the beautiful area of Rethymno. It is a place you have to experience for your self. It is located in easy reach of many beautiful beaches, mountain scenes and of course the historic Rethymno. This Venetian Casa is historic in its own right. It is tucked away from the hustle of tourist areas making it a sanctuary for peaceful nights & tranquility. There is a lovely pool to cool off & enjoy a far reaching view of the sea. The rooms are thoughtfully equipped. The beds are very comfortable something I am very fussy about when I am away. You will certainly have a most genuine generous welcome. In the morning you are offered a freshly prepared breakfast. Being small and exculsive you feel totally relaxed to enjoy a leisurely breakfast not like the usual frantic buffet in most places. I cannot fault my stay and I cannot wait to go back again & again. It was happiness thankyou Linda

Room Tip: They are all unique and I would like to stay in any one of them.

We visited Casa dell Aristea in June 2013 and had some wonderful days in the area near to Rythmno.

At first it was difficult to find because there was no sign on the main road of Atsipopulou to show us the right way (but it will be installed soon as Linda told us later).

The house and each of its rooms is decorated in a unique style which makes it a warm and relaxing place. Linda, the owner of the house, welcomed us in such a warm way we haven't experienced before and made us feel like beeing at home.

Every morning she served us a delicious breakfast including homemade cretan specialities like "Dakos" or yoghurt with honey on the antique wooden table in the center of the house.Although we tried to eat all of it - we weren't able to!

As we had been looking for an individual place for our holiday far away from mass tourism - we found it at Casa dell Aristea.

Thank you once again Linda and see you next time again in Crete.

Mrs Linda has created and keeps a wonderful, cozy, welcoming place in Atsipopoulo, 5 minutes by car out of Rethymno.
Each room is unique, with antique / traditional furniture carefully selected by her husband who owns an antique shop.
The bed was great: old-style iron bed with a Cocomat mattress (natural material) making you want to stay in bed. The breakfast area reminds of a castle. Linda is a sweet and kind person, makes you feel at home and cares for your accomodation needs and anything that will make your stay even better. We really look forward to visiting the Casa del' Aristea again.

Stayed for 6 night in the middle of Septeber 2012! Everything was excellent.A very calm place, luxury rooms, and clean, very clean place wich is the most important. Just 10 minutes from the center of Rethymno ( you need a car or scooter ), and near the national road, so you can go everywhere, without get involved into Rethymno traffic. Lida the owner made us feel like home, very helpful, we felt like part of her family. We stayed at "Elpida " room , the smallest room of Casa and we were completely satisfied. Everything in the room is of excellent quality ( matress, air coditionning, bathroom ), and of excellent taste, decorated like real greek house of another era but with contemporary facilities.
Casa dell ' Aristea is a reason to visit Rethymno again.

We are couple with little baby, visited Casa dell Aristea at September for a week. It was our second vacation on Crete. We ordered it on internet and it was even better than in pictures, really lovely place,pool and rooms. Linda is very professional with rich experience in hotel business. Although the atmosphere in the hotel is very homely. Linda helped us in every little thing we needed and there were plenty because we were with little child. She truly treated us like her family, and gave us feeling like we are at home.We want to thank her for hospitality. Highly recommended place to stay.

We visited Casa dell Aristea with my boyfriend inJuly, for a weekend to relax. Since we are from Chania we thought we knew Rethimno very well and thought of trying something new in Atsipopoulo, that a friend of ours suggested. Little did we know of what a gem that could be!!

The place is beautiful, Papalexakis family has worked very hard and have done a magnificent job. The reception, the main entrance,all the rooms, the pool, the dining room, all about it is taken great care of, with major attention to detail!
Linda, the landlady, is a great person and hostess, she greeted us and welcomed us with the original cretan hospitality spirit. She showed us around, took us to all available rooms and couldn't hide her excitement and love for the place she has created with her husband and sons.
We stayed in "Sophia", a beautiful room with all the modern comforts well and discretely fitted in a place coming out of the past!
The room was very clean and the welcome fruit basket, wine and tsikoudia were fantastic! All amenities, towels and pool towels were in place and very well taken care of. Linda is doing an amazing job with it all.
Last but not least, do not miss out Linda's breakfast! Her homemade cookies, fresh milk and warm croissants with Nutella along with Linda's great personality are the best way to wake up in the morning!
All in all, we fell in love with the place and will definetely go back very very soon! Very strongly recommended!

Well done, keep up the great work!
