We had a lovely relaxing holiday. The villa is so nicely furnished with a lot of lovely little features. Pool is an excellent size and it has a large garden area. Loved the different areas around the villa where shade could be sought if need be. The only downside for us was the lack of air conditioning(which we knew about beforehand), the fans just blew hot air around, this was after trying to cool the place down in the evening with shutters open to let a breeze through but the breeze that was present during the day seemed to disappear in the evening!! We liked the location but some may think it a little remote, nearest beach 10 min drive down winding roads. There are a couple of villas within sight of this one but for us this was not a problem. We would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to totally relax and get away from it all.
Villa Anastasia was as described. Set in beautiful countryside with scenic views. The villa was clean and tidy and beds were comfortable. TV and wifi. We feel the villa was good value for money. The outside patio was wonderful for sitting in for breakfast but was definitely not private as neighbouring villas and the few people/traffic on the lane ( very friendly people from neighbouring areas) could clearly see the pool,seating area and actually inside the lounge if the doors were open. That said, we didn't ask Jane before travel about the level of privacy so no complaints. Jane was most helpful and her friendly communications were most welcomed. There was no bbq as stated in the ad ( despite searching). Not sure what happened there. One note, the pool is 1.5 m in depth with no shallow end, probably ideal for most adults but not for paddlers like me or young children. There was a lengthy power cut one day ( 8 til 2 pm) and we hadn't prior warning. The person in charge of the villa said, when we phoned him, that he didn't think it would have effected Litsarda. Maybe a suggestion for him to pass on this information to all tenants just in case it reaches the villa. Villa location was good for travel to Rethymnon, Georgioupoli, Heraklion and back into Chania ( pronounced Hania). Georgioupoli is a sleepy picturesque town you shouldn't leave til the last day to visit! Crete people are friendly, inclusive, outgoing and are good-humoured. We loved our week in Villa Anastasia and would definitely recommend.
The property is comfortable and rustic. When we arrived the pool terrace seemed to be quite public, however we discovered that the property is so remote that you can go all day without seeing another soul, however during our stay it looks like they were letting the new building next door which will sadly take away the privacy.
Watching the sun rise and set from the roof terrace was quite spectacular. Any issues arising whilst we were there were dealt with in hours, great service.
Lovely drives out in the direction of Kalives and Georgiopoli and we went to Lake Varna 3 times. See John the English Butcher in Vamos for your meat and other English products.
This was our second holiday at this villa and once again we had a fabulous time. The accommodation is excellent and provides all the home comforts you could want in a typical Cretan style.
The welcome gifts were superb again. We particularly liked the bowl of cherries.
We also welcomed the addition of a comfortable sofa in the living area.
The swimming pool had recently been newly tiled and was lovely. The people who came to clean it during our stay were very friendly and helpful, giving us tips on places to visit.
The whole area around the villa is magnificent. The views from the windows and the roof terrace are stunning.
We explored the area all around and found the information folder very useful with details of routes to places of interest and times to get there.
Nearby Almirida, Kalives and Georgopolis were our particular favourites but we also enjoyed Chania, Frankocastelloand Souda Bay. All definately worth a visit.
Overall a fantastic holiday again with friendly correspondence from Jane, the owner.
Thank you very much. We wil definately be going again.
The property was set in a lovely location with a distant sea view to the front and mountains behind and to the side. The villa was clean and tidy and well equipped. The welcome pack in the fridge was very helpful. The only small criticism of the kitchen was the very small freezer compartment, but apart from that all was excellent. It was quite hot when we were there in July and we had a few problems with invading ants but nothing a spray or two did not take care of.
We thought the pool was excellent and we gave it plenty of use, along with a number of the beaches nearby and on the south coast.
Whilst the villa is in a lovely quiet area, there are some part finished houses adjacent and we did experience intermittent builder activities while we were there.This did not detract too much from our enjoyment as it was not all day every day.
All in all, we had an excellent time at Villa Anastasia and will consider returning in future.
