Villa Anna is not just one of those villas you come across in the rental market. You see, before Anna and Teri - its owners –and their children decided to put it in the market, it was intended as their home. This is the reason why everything has been given extra attention and care - especially the garden, which is exclusively Anna’s and Teri’s children making.
The villa is particularly large (320 sq. m. with another 100 sq. m. balconies), able to accommodate up to 14 people. It was built in 2001 but it was fully renovated in 2013-14. It features a large living room with a fireplace, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi) and all possible modern conveniences. There are balconies all around the villa with breathtaking views over the lands and sea.
Outside, you will find an 80sq. m.swimming pool, surrounded by deck chairs, a playground for our young friends and a BBQ area. Last but not least, there is a basketball court where you can try out your skills.
Villa Anna is located at the center of Crete, meaning that you can easily travel and explore every corner of the island.
Furthermore, all facilities are within 5 minutes’ distance by car. At the village of Stavromenos you can find a bakery shop, mini markets, small tavernas and many different shops. Also, the beach of Stavromenos, one of the longest beaches in Crete, is just 5 km away.
Lastly, you should know that you are only 8 km away from Arkadi Monastery, one of the most important historical monuments in Crete. Cretans’ greatest sacrifice in the name of freedom took place at this very plateau of Mount Idi back in 1866; 1.500 Cretans fought against 15.000 Turks only to see their defenses break quickly. With captivity being the only option, Cretans gathered in the powder keg for their final act… Yes, the bang was heard to Heraklion. It was the beginning of the end of the Turkish Domination. Europe’s feelings shifted decisively in favor of Greece. Arkadi was given the title of a European Freedom Monument by UNESCO.
This is an excellent villa 15 minutes walk from Asteri, a tiny village. It is very remote so prepare yourself for that. The accommodation in the main house is very good. It is a lovely modern house. Sheet/Towel changes are very good although i would recommend a more thorough clean once in the two weeks (floors brushed and mopped/toilets cleaned etc). The accommodation in the apartment is very ... more
It is a lovely villa and most suitable for a family holiday especially for a large family! Great also for children and the swimming pool is excellent and is cleaned regularly. The gardens also lovely with citrus trees and vine. Good place to explore the west of Crete.
Fantastic house in a quiet neighbourhood, amazing view from the terrasse. Very friendly and nice hosts that made us feel very welcome. The kitchen was well equipped. Nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. A car is a must. Will highly recommend this place. (Posted on AirBnB)
