“Comfortable villa, spectacular views, a couple of niggles”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Myself, my husband and our 13 year old son stayed at Villa Anastasia for 8 nights. The villa was as expected very remote but you are only 2 minutes from the national road which gets you pretty much from one end of the island to the other.
The views are amazing and it is so,peaceful. Time to sit and watch the swifts dive the pool and catch the insects (of which we experienced none!)
The pool is large enough to swim in and play silly games in between sunbathing. It can get pretty windy as you are up fairly high but not cold (in Aug anyway). Make sure you slap on the sun cream as you forget how hot the sun is!
The trio of kittens were our daily guests but didn't attempt to come into the house (much to my sons disappointment). They were so sweet.
The bathroom could do with updating. It is open plan but not quite a wet room. This meant that every time we showered, the toilet and basin etc got covered in water. The shower wasn't very efficient and could also have done with a thorough clean as could the rest of the bathroom.
The kitchen was also not quite cleaned to our standard.
I contacted Alan, the owner to inform him of our concerns. He responded within 30 minutes and was very helpful and keen to do what he could to help. Angie who cleans the pool was also very supportive and asked what she could do to help. She also gave us some great recommendations for places to go.
Although we had these issues, we were so pleased to have an understanding contact.
Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend Villa Anastasia to couples, families with young or older children but do hire a car!

“Brilliant and beautiful villa!”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed at Villa Anastasia with my better half and 3 and a half year old daughter and we all loved every minute. The photos on here are an absolute true reflection of the quality of the villa and the peace and quiet you will enjoy if you choose to stay there. Inside everything was perfect, access to Sky News if you actually want to know what is happening in the wider world, clean, everything you could wish for in the kitchen, clothes washing facilities etc etc and loads of helpful guides to go along with the welcome pack. The location is really peaceful but you will of course need a car. We choose the villa because of how secluded it appeared to be - and it was. Everything you need in terms of food shopping or local tavernas etc are only a couple of km away and you can access the new highway within minutes and head off to explore in whichever direction you wish. The pool is great, clean and most importantly for us had a child section which our daughter could enjoy safely in her armbands and rubber ring! The villa is not overlooked and is just a great place to escape. Would highly recommend staying at Villa Anastasia to anyone and we will certainly be going back!

The house and pool were lovely. You do need a car but in a lovely quiet area and very peaceful. Views were fantastic. Traveled with family older child [21]and younger child [13] both were happy with the area.

“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";-))
