Description from owner


Villa Anastasia occupies one floor with terraces leading to studio apartment, BBQ & pool, where mountain breezes keep the temperatures down.

With little more than a handful of houses, the village of Veni gently rests among the green olive groves that sweep down the hills. Veni is the perfect escape you’re looking for. Refreshingly green, you can truly get away from it all in this perfect rural pocket of Crete. Despite this private and green location, Villa Anastasia is only 5 minutes by car to the tavernas, shops and long, quiet beach at Kolymbari.

Villa Anastasia is a charming country villa with stunning views set in its own private gardens which provide privacy. Villa Anastasia is popular and has repeat guests year after year, and it is easy to see why when you visit this haven of relaxation.

The terraced garden with the 34m2 private swimming pool just below, is perfect for children to play in, whilst the mature olive tree near the pool edge provides shade. The studio apartment is adjacent to the BBQ terrace and pool.

Villa Anastasia is also a perfect location for birdwatchers, where a wide variety of birds and wild flowers can be found. There are plentiful walks through the shady olive groves up the hillside behind the villa. With easy access to the National Highway as well as roads to the west and south coasts, this is a great area from which to explore Crete’s many and varied sites.

At Kolymbari you can enjoy the beach or shopping for souvenirs in the narrow streets or duck into an atmospheric taverna. And you're not all that far away from the beach, either. A 10 to 15 minute drive will take you to the shores of Ravdoucha or Nopigia Beaches. Pack a picnic and enjoy a leisurely afternoon there, or refuel at one of the tavernas. Back in Veni, after the activity of towns and beaches, the serene calm will be a welcome relief. So sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful serenity.

It is very rare that you find such an attractive villa with such great views that combines both the best of the traditional and modern worlds.

Really lovely villa, fantastic swimming pool. All very private, lovely rural location. Peaceful. Exceeded expectations

“We had a lovely stay and could not fault anything.”

The pool is fantastic with the most stunning view. We have already booked in for 2016! Highlights of our trip: Chania Harbour Archaeological Museum of Kissamos Odigitria Monastery, Kolymbari War graves in Souda (Souda Commonwealth War Cemetery) & Malame Polyrrinia - (50 minute drive from Chania)

Owner's reply: Great guests and very happy they enjoyed their stay.

“A fantastic way to spend your holiday!”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2013

July and August 2013 we spent three weeks at the wonderful Villa Anastasia, in Veni, Crete. It is just a wonderful Villa with total privacy and great views. The Villa has a lovely private swimming pool, where the children almost lived. We enjoyed every minute, and when we wanted to dine out, we went to the unbelievably charming village of Kolymbari, which is close by. We can highly recommend this charming place, and we will return next year. The tranquil and peaceful location and the swimmingpool.

Owner's reply: It gives me great pleasure when people enjoy their stay!

We stayed for 2 weeks and could not fault the villa in any way, the village location is very peaceful, ideal to explore all that western Crete has to offer (car essential) and is only a 10 minute drive to nearby Tavernas and Supermarkets etc. Their are walks through beautiful countryside from the front door and the views from the veranda and pool area are stunning. Perfect for a "get away from it all holiday" with plenty to do nearby if you can tear yourself away from the fantastic pool and BBQ. All in all a very relaxing stay in very special place that we cant wait to return to.

Owner's reply: Great comments what can I say!

“A tranquil retreat with marvellous views”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2012

Villa Anastasia was perfect for our holiday. Only a couple of miles from the coast, it felt very secluded and remote with lovely views of the surrounding hills and the silvery olive groves swaying in the breeze. Plenty of room indoors and out for two couples or four friends who don't mind sharing. Highlights undoubtedly the decadent pool, brilliant BBQ and fragrant garden. Any downsides? The bathroom is rather small and dark, and the reliabilty of the plumbing no more than you would expect from a property at the edge of a small Cretan hamlet. Beautiful scenery all around, with lovely walks from the doorstep. The nearest village proper, Kalydonia (not a tourist in sight at the cafe) is some 20 minutes' walk or a couple of minutes' drive, and the seaside town of Kolymbari (some very good tavernas and several shops) only a few minutes in the car. You can reach the stunning beaches of Falassarna on the west coast in around 40 minutes via the larger town of Kissamos. A car is essential and Hania airport around 45 minutes away. Very good value and all in all a terrific place to spend a relaxing holiday.

Owner's reply: It is a real joy to know our guests have had such a great holiday experience!
