We were completely overwhelmed by this Villa, and by the welcome we received from Mr Roland. We only stayed for 7 nights... I wish we’d stayed for much longer.
We arrived late on a Sunday night, at the end of the season, and were greeted personally by Mr.Roland.. He gave us a detailed tour of the villa, and explained all of the equipment / switches etc..
To cap it all, Roland had thoughtfully prepared a huge dish of pasticcio and kept it warm in the oven for our arrival.. We had been worried that we might not be able to get any food that late at night. The fridge & cupboards were stocked with some essentials - Milk, beer, wine, coffee, tea, bread etc.
The Villa itself is extremely well furnished. It’s luxurious, with modern facilities, while still retaining the rustic charm of the original Venetian architecture. There’s air-conditioning & heating in every room. The WiFi’s good. Even in October, the pool was warm enough to use (the kids were in it everyday).
Our visit was late in October, effectively the last week of the Season, so many of the facilities in the nearby towns of Panormas and Perama were closing for the season. The whole area had a wonderful “winding-down” feel.
The actual village of Anggeliana has a small supermarket, but you need to go (drive) further afield to find Restaurants and bars etc.
It’s a few kilometres in-land in a very agricultural area - Watch out for the local farmers driving their pick-up trucks like Formula-1 race cars :-)
The main “National” road is only about 10kms from the Villa, so day-trips further afield were easy. We visited Knossos, and Kournas Lake (twice - highly recommended).
In summary, this Villa was perfect for us (party of 5) - It’s furnished to a very high-standard... I just wish we’d stayed longer.
