Villa Zevra is in traditional Atsipopoulo village on the popular Greek island of Crete. It oozes laid-back charm with its old buildings and friendly atmosphere. From the villa, it’s only a few minutes’ walk to local shops, supermarkets and tavernas. Atsipopoulo is also 5km from the charming north-coast town of Rethymno with its Venetian citadel of Fortezza, Venetian Harbour and Old Town. The harbour is filled with coloured fishing boats and lined with tavernas, bars and restaurants. Look out for freshly-caught seafood or classic Greek dishes like souvlaki (tender cuts of meat) and moussaka. Culture lover? Get your fix at Rethymno Lighthouse (built in 1830) or get an insight into traditional life at the Historical and Folklore Museum with local crafts like textiles and ceramics. Visit the beautiful Venetian mansions in Arkadiou Street or relax with a coffee at one of the cafés. You won’t have to walk far to get to the beach either – it’s right in the middle of town. Rethymno beach boasts a long 12km stretch of soft sand and shallow swimming waters. Bordering it is a promenade, and it’s just across the road from shops, cafés and restaurants for when you get peckish during the day. There’s also brilliant turquoise waters at the nearby beaches of Skinaria, Ammoudi and Damnoni, all located near Plakias village (about 30km south of Rethymno). For adventuring further afield, the Sacred Monastery of Arkadi is about a 30-minute drive from Rethymno. The holy spot is a peaceful oasis of golden stone buildings and flower-filled courtyards. From here, you can walk through fields and meadows to the village of Pikris and stop for lunch.
