Villa
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.

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.

About the neighbourhood
The Kolymbari area Kolymbari is a traditional farming centre which has a growing tourist industry in the summer months, and is the junction for roads that lead south, west and east. The long bamboo and conifer lined shingle beach with tavernas, sun beds and umbrellas, never gets very busy and it is even easy to find a quiet spot during the summer. Nearby is the beautiful Gonia Monastery from here you can access the Rodopou Peninsula which has lovely views and small coves. Hike along the Samaria Gorge National Park, Europe’s longest gorge. To the south and west of Kolymbari one can find the lovely town of Paleohora, which has 2 huge beaches, and a promenade which is closed to traffic at night, the 3km long sandy beach at Falassarna, the breath-taking Elafonissi beach which has pink sand a...
