Had to write a review on here as soon as we got home. We stayed at this villa for ten nights and it was bliss.
The villa is everything you could wish for and more. It has a beautiful location with the most amazing views and really feels like a real home for a holiday. It has everything you could need and is spotless.
We felt got to experience the real 'Crete' and alternated between chilling at the villa and going on adventures every other day. It was the perfect place to come home to after a long day in the sun. We went to 'Knossos', Sitia, The island of 'Spinaloga' (a highlight especially after just reading the book), we visited sandy beaches & snorkelled off the causeway you can see from the villa, visited lots of towns & villages and tried many of the village restaurants such as the one right along the road and some a bit further out. The owners are always helpful in giving you tips if you want to find nice places off the beaten track. We did eat in Elounda & loved the 'Ariadne' for pizza just for a change from all the great greek food we were enjoying! We didn't find the need to go out to the busier places at night because we were happy at the villa but you could easily get a taxi no problem.
We are two young married couples & the break was exactly what we could have wished for. We are keen travellers & it was one of our favourite holidays. We could not recommend this enough to anyone looking & hope to visit again in the future.
We would like to thank Mandy for all her help with the booking which was very straight forward & very helpful.
Once again though, a huge thankyou to John & Dimitra who allowed us to have a little taste of heaven in 'Crete'.

Absolutely fantastic villa with breathtaking views

  • Review Submitted: 25-Jul-2013

As promised, upon arrival, John and Dimitri were there to greet us and showed us around. The villa is absolutely fantastic; so much better than the picture you form from the images displayed on the website. One could never tire of the views from the balconies and the master bedroom out over the bay to the Spinalonga Peninsula and beyond to the Gulf of Mirabello and the far eastern peninsular of Crete.

The villa is spotlessly clean. We’ve rented a number of villas in the past and have always had to clean something, usually the crockery etc, before we were happy to use it. Not so in Villa Anastasia as this is John and Dimitri’s home outside the season. Basic supplies like toilet rolls, washing up liquid and cloths, dishwasher tablets and detergents for washing clothes were also present. Everything is there as listed on the website and, more importantly, works! There was also a proper welcome pack from which you could make breakfast or a light meal.

Although air conditioning is available we hardly ever used it as the windows had mosquito blinds fitted so you could leave the large sliding windows open, allowing the mountain breeze to circulate through the villa - very welcome when sleeping.

It is worth hiring a car as there are numerous beaches outside Elounda and so much to see in this area of Crete, especially if you want to delve in to it’s rich and varied history.

The tavernas and restaurants in Elounda cater for many different tastes but should you wish to have a more traditional experience then John and Dimitri are always willing to offer suggestions as to where to go; where, if you’re lucky enough, you can experience locals playing traditional music (the taverna in Kastelli).

Having beach towels supplied was an added bonus now that some airlines are imposing further baggage allowance restrictions.

In Elounda there is a bakery, a butcher and some small supermarkets. Ayios Nikolaos has a Lidl and Carrefour, although these are not open on a Sunday.

John and Dimitri like to offer the type of service that they would expect to receive. We were extremely satisfied with their level of customer service as well as their helpful and friendly, without being intrusive, manner.

All in all a very good package and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Villa Anastasia to others.

Your own little bit of Cretian heaven

Villa Anastasia is a superb home, not just a holiday villa, but a real home. It is immaculate, spotlessly clean, well maintained and just so comfortable. Every comfort and convenience has been thought of by the owners, including the welcome basket, hand soap, shower gels and bathroom slippers. We have stayed in many other villas in Crete and Anastasia stands out in front. Its position is superb and having balconies on all three levels and the 4th level of the splash pool, gives wondrous views of the bay, the lovely harbour town of Elounda and the pretty village of Pano Elounda - check it all out at night with the twinkling lights of the shops and tavernas - truly relaxing. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever had and the very practical addition of bannister hand rails inside the house was a boon, not just for my elderly mother, but for all us - great job John! Its location provides a good base for touring and sight seeing around the area if you wish and being so close to Elounda and Agiois Nikolaos, also provides shopping, chilling out, boat trips, excusions, hundreds of eating places and night life. The villa provides your respite and relaxation if you choose an active holiday! On the other side, if you just want to chill out completely, apart from food and drink, you don't have to leave the villa. The owners and letting manager provide an exemplary service from first enquiry right through to the morning that you return home (with sadness on our part). We have visited Crete for so many years that we have our favourite haunts and can highly recommend the Babel Bar in Elounda for all day food and drinks with great views and agree with the owners recommendation of the Planatos taverna in Fourni - you must try the mixed Cretian smoked meats - out of this world at Planatos. We had an awesome stay at Villa Anastasia, we would return like a shot and can highly recommend it to others.

Absolutely Perfect !

  • Review Submitted: 14-Oct-2012

We received a huge surprise on arrival at this gem of a villa, the photographs on the Internet were impressive but didn’t convey how beautiful this villa really was, the villa consisted of three floors each with its own terrace.
Ground floor had 2 bedrooms both with en suite and patio windows onto a terrace with a fantastic view.
The first floor was accessed by a lovely marble staircase up to a spacious bright lounge & kitchen again with another terrace with again that view !

The third floor was a huge room with a double bed, the bed was in the middle of the room and as the villa was positioned against the mountain two of the bedroom walls consisted of almost all glass patio sliding doors leading out onto the terrace the view of the villages and harbour below were magnificent. Each morning we sat on the top terrace with coffee watching the sunrise PERFECT.!!!!!
The place was spotless many thanks to the owners John and Dimitri and the cleaner and agent Mandy for a perfect holiday home.

The main town Elounda is about 5 minutes by car and is full of places to eat but if you would rather walk then just above the villa is the small village of PINES that has a small Greek taverna VORNO the food and service is excellent and is family owned the son Stratos and daughter who serve both speak reasonable English, the food is excellent and much cheaper compared to the tavernas in Elounda. We ate here for 6 nights of our two week holiday highly recommended.
We rented a quad bike for most of the holiday and explored the surrounding mountains no shortage of paths and tracks.
We intend to return to this villa and would highly recommend it.

just thought we would write and say what a great & relaxing time we had staying here, everything was taken care of, we had a lovely welcome basket full of goodies, which were delicious. The villa was spotlessly clean & very homely, the views were stunning, we spent many a day just curled up reading a good book on the patio area, we just didnt want the holiday to end. we will definitely be back...

The villa is a 5 minute walk from the small village of Pines, some 4km from the popular resort of Elounda. Pines is a traditional Cretan village where you can still see the locals taking their livestock to pasture on the back of a donkey. The village has a small taverna which offers good food at low prices and is well worth a visit. Elounda is a 10 minute drive away and offers bars, restaurants, shops and beaches. Boat trips are available form the harbour to the island of Spinalonga - made famous by the book 'The Island' by Victoria Hislop. A TV series based on the book has been made - visit where it has been filmed. There are numerous excursions available from travel shops in both Elounda and Agios Nikolaos to places such as Knossos, Vai Beach and the Golden Island called Chrissi. Watersports, boat trips and scuba diving are available locally. Approx 10km away is the larger town of Agios Nikolaos where you will find a greater variety of shops, restaurants and beaches.
