Casa dell’ Aristea
, is a newly renovated 15th century manor and small family run establishment located in the village of Atsipopoulo at an altitude of 160m, a mere 6 km from the old Venetian town of Rethymno.
“Aristea” was the name of the original owner of the manor who often spoke to her grandchildren enchanting them with the tale of the beautiful fairy who lived in the house and watched over them and who was often seen fluttering around in her white woven silk dress and her long flowing hair capped with a small wreath of flowers.
Great care and respect was taken to restore the manor to its’ authentic architectural grandeur and each of the seven wooden beamed apartments, unique in style, have been meticulously furnished for comfort and decorated with authentic delicate touches of yesteryear.
We are confident that all our guests will experience a true Venetian atmosphere combined with contemporary comfort.

Blue pool towels are also available.
Internet access available in all rooms.
