“A relaxing get away and a great place to stay.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had such a lovely holiday here. We have two older children and a little one and it suited us all. We enjoyed the view so much and the villa has everything you need. Although we loved getting out and about seeing the island, we all enjoyed the days we simply stayed at the pool. We nearly brought a local kitten home who adopted us - so if a tabby cat drops by, please give it a stroke from us :)

“Absolutely gorgeous!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed last June for two weeks and we had a wonderful time. We went with two small children aged 18 months and 3 and the villa had everything we needed. The children loved the pool and we spent evenings out enjoying the BBQ. My parents joined us for the second week in the seperate room. The area is lovely and there's lots of information in the villa about local attractions - read the guest book as you'll get lots of tips about the best fishmongers, butchers etc. to go to. A car is essential but it's lovely being in such a quiet and remote area which is still close to beaches etc.

My only (small) criticism is that the third room isn't quite as nice as the main bedrooms and could do with mosquito screens and proper curtains to block out the light.

Overall a wonderful holiday and we plan to go back at some point.

“Wonderful villa and amazing view”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

One week of happiness in this fantastic villa and in this incredible island!
The villa was even more beautiful that we imagined. The interior is perfect and lacks nothing and the outside (where we spent most of the time) is just magic: the view, the pool, the terraces: everything was so nice! We decided (although we were there only for one week) to stay in the villa during a complete day for enjoying it (a perfect relaxing day in total privacy followed by an evening in Kolymbari: charming village where there are very good taverns).

A car is essential and we had no problem with driving on Cretan roads.

Alan (the owner) is very professional and responds very quickly to any issues.

The location of the villa is perfect for exploring West Crete. We liked very much the beautiful beaches of Falassarna (35 min by car), Chania (especially the old town and the Venetian port), the incredible beach of Elafonissi and Rethymnon. We have done a very nice cruise with "Gramvousa Balos Cruises” to discover the small island of Gramvousa and the amazing Balos lagoon (documentation available in the villa - departure from Kissamos, only 15 min by car from the villa – around 8 hours of adventure).

I highly recommend the Anastasia villa to anyone who wants to discover Crete from a wonderful place and with this very pleasant feeling "to be at home";-))

“rural charm , with view and pool”
Reviewed 7 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We were 2 parents and 3 Childs ages 7-10, Early October 2012.
Villa has exceeded our expectations. Almost everything about it was great.
The villa ( +gardens ) is big, well maintained and deserved the name 'Villa'. Pool is great too.
Great view from it, and no neighbors anywhere in front and sides (only in the back, but isolated by tress and wall).
Air was great in early Oct on the hill, so we did not try the air condition ( which there was, of course).
We also liked the candle lanterns.

The locating is rather rural. Veni has ~10 houses. Its is a few kilometers, from main road. We were not so used to manual gear, but got alone.

Roads in west Crete are narrower and curvier than Israel. On the other hand there is far less traffic, and drivers are relaxed.
Great value for money.
