We recently spent 5 nights at the Bellagio Hotel.
It really is a B & B as you can only get breakfast there.
We are a well travelled couple and have stayed all over the world in simple and luxury hotels
But the atmosphere of this place is very special!
The hotel is run by Evi and her mother who are both charming and helpful.
The rooms are clean with all mod cons like an air conditioner.
Ours even had a hammam but we never used it.
The breakfast is taken outside on a small patio and our room was upstairs at the back, where there is only one room.(There are 4 more rooms in the hotel)
It has a small terrace and you look out over Rethymno roof tops and in the morning you can hear the chanting of priests although quite faint in the background.
The breakfast is delicious, home cooked and Evi could not have been more helpful with tips for outings and restaurants.
Try Petite Fleur, within walking distance!(restaurant)
There is a beach nearby, it is fine but the really stunning beaches are 45 minutes drive from Rethymno on the south coast near Plakias.
The only drawback is that the hotel is hard to find, and your car is not allowed in the small street.
there is a parking nearby, Evi will show you, and we asked a taxi to drive us to the hotel (5 euros) as we were tired and no longer wanted to search.
The hotel was a house which belonged to a painter and most of the paintings you see in the hotel were made by him.
The weather was lovely,even at the end of October and we swam in the sea.
We can heartily recommend this small hotel!
