Villa Anastasia, is a stone built, luxurious traditional villa combining a happy blend of new and old and of town and country style. The villa is in a quite area, just 6km away from the vibrant Venetian town of Rethymno. It's well laid out into 120sq metres with living room, kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Due to the natural materials used for building and decorating the villa (stone and wood for the villa and hand made carpets and curtains for the decoration), it breathes a romantic air. The swimming pool is surrounded by a spacious lush garden (with olive trees and many colourful flowers), thus guaranteeing absolute privacy. The daily maid service (at the time of your preference during the day) completes the most enjoyable holidays in an unforgettable environment. Our little guests will enjoy endless games in a play-ground made with a lot of love from the owners. A welcome basket will be waiting for you upon arrival. This officially licensed lovely and traditional stone built villa is the ideal holiday resort for all those who are looking for tranquility and relaxation.

About Elena Bebi

We are welcome you to Villa Anastasia.

My name is Elena Bebi and i live in Rethymno with my husband and my eight years old daughter. We own this family business since 2002.

I have studied in Alpine School - Switzerland Travel and Tourism Management.

My mother Anastasia and I by offering to our guests every day service we aim to make your holiday unique in an unforgettable environment .

By staying in a short distance from the villa our family is always ready to response in all your needs.

In this Real Ecological Villa built only from natural materials you will feel the difference...

Why Elena Bebi chose Rethymnon area

Despite the fact that I was borned in Athens, Rethymno was the home land of my mother Anastasia and always our dream was to return to this unique island of Crete.

The perfecture of Rethymno represents the heart of Crete and it is without any doubt one of the most beautiful areas of Greece.

You are invited to enjoy many beautiful beaches either organized or isolated in a short distance from the villa depending on your mood....

The mild and warm climate of Crete allows us to start swimming after the middle of March.

In the evening only in five minutes drive you will have the chance to visit the old town of Rethymno one of the best preserved Renaissance city of Greece.

You may enjoy your dinner or your drink among a hudge variety of restaurants and bars. In case that you preffer a more quite evening you may stay in the village enjoying the refreshing air of Prines and a meal at the Traditional tavernas of the square in walking distance from Villa Anastasia

You may have taste luxury in other destinations but, in Rtehymno we will take you one step further. Here you will feel the emotion of Cretan hospitality along with the touch of care of my mother Anastasia! Her service always comes with a smile!

What makes this villa unique

During the construction of the villa we respected the enviroment and we refused to cut any tree in the property. As a result our guests now can relax under the shade of the olive groves in a colorful garden.

Only at villa Anastasia our little guests can enjoy playing in their own wooden villa (play ground).

Every day service( at the time of your preference during the day) is provided except Sunday.

All the materials used to built the villa are ONLY ecological.

Everything used in the interior (bed linen,towels, hand made carpets...etc.) are only from natural materials.

Anastasia will always welcome you at the villa no matter how late the arrival is.

It will be our pleasure to meet you and we are ready to offer you a unique experience of hospitality in the picturesque and sunny town of Rethymno.

A wonderful villa in a relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

We visited Villa Anastasia for the second time, and, for the second time, we loved it.

The setting and villa are both beautiful. Inside, the villa has all the comforts that you would realistically require on holiday. And if there isn't something that you need, Anastasia will always do her best to find it for you.

However, we spent most of our time outside. Set in an olive grove, you will find that there is plenty of space and variation. Enough space for children to play but for adults to relax. And enough variation for sun worshippers to bask in the hot sun and for others, like me, to sit in the shade and read a book. The fact that the villa is located several hundred metres above sea level is also an advantage during the hot summer period as the level of humidity is reduced to a tolerable level.

Anastasia is a wonderful host. She cleans the villa each day and brings various Cretan treats as well as even full meals. She really couldn't be more helpful, yet she does this in a way that is not intrusive. The whole family liked her very much.

Finally, the villa is set in the small and sleepy village of Prines. This is only a five-minute drive from Rethymon, where many wonderful restaurants can be found (especially the outstanding Prima Plora). Moreover, the village ensures that your time away is quiet and restful. There are numerous tavernas in Prines, including the excellent Olive. The people of the village are friendly and helpful. For instance, Anthony from the Olive would bring us lunch, dinner and even wine from the taverna upon request.

I really can't recommend Villa Anastasia more highly. Our two visits have been magical and we hope to return again soon.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just come to the end of a wonderful stay at Villa Anastasia. The villa has everything that you need: it's very luxurious both inside and out. The beds are really comfortable, the kitchen is really well equipped and the outside space including the pool is amazing. Our 2 year old daughter loved her own personal play area. Anastasia is a fantastic host and a really lovely lady. We were greeted on arrival with lots of provisions including bread, wine, milk, eggs and much more. Anastasia then brought us little treats each day: delicious cheese and spinach pies and lovely desserts. After seeing our daughter playing shop in the garden Anastasia brought her some play fruit and vegetables the following day. The village of Prines is very pretty. We ate in all three tavernas and they are all very friendly and well worth a visit. This was our daughters first holiday abroad and she loved it. Parents and grandparents loved it too. Thank you Anastasia and Elena x

Wonderfully relaxing, very comfortable with rustic

  • 5 of 5

Anastasia made us feel very warmly welcomed immediately on arrival and then throughout our stay at this lovely villa, she is generous and charming as is the villa and my grandson of 3 years old did not want to leave to come home.

We all loved our stay and were sad to leave such a comfortable, friendly and fun environment.

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What can I say?! There are literally not enough words to describe what a fantastic place Villa Anastasia is! We have just got back from our honeymoon there and it has been nothing short of perfection. The villa itself is stunning and in the most wonderful location. We loved the village of Prines and nearby Rethymnon town and the people are so unbelievably friendly and they helped to make our stay so relaxing. Moving onto Anastasia and Elena...what wonderful people they are. They made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived and not only that, but their contact and communication from the beginning has been super. Anastasia brought us home made food and treats every day and for that, we cannot thank her enough! It was all delicious and so, so kind. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that we will be returning to Villa Anastasia at some point in the future. 5/5 doesn't even do justice to this place and these people! They've certainly gained a 110% from us!

Another reason why we like Crete so much!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for an experience of the original and famous hospitable cretan mentality, you're in best hands in Villa Anastasia. But: you mustn't worry about your body weight! Because every day you will be delighted by cretan delicacies, homemade by Anastasia herself: "tiropita" (greek cheese pies), "gemista" (stuffed tomatoes, peppers and eggplants), greek salad, cakes, marvellous desserts, and, and, and ....

And every day Anastasia, the soul of the house, cleans the whole house and the terrace.

By the way, the garden and the terrace with the swimming pool are wonderful if you want to calm down, to enjoy the blue sky and the sun, or just to cool down yourself in the pool. Under parasols or olive trees you will enjoy the silence.

If you come with children you will find a veritable playground for them just beside the pool/terrace, and even a small carousel is planned for next year as Anastasia told us.

And when you've become sufficiently calm, you can go to Rethymnon - only a few miles away - for shopping or dinner for example.

So: we love'd it so much, and many thanks to Anastasia for a marvellous stay that we surely won't forget!

Villa Anastasia is one hour by car from Heraklion, only 7 minutes from Rethymnon and approximately 7 minutes from the sea front. The traditional village of Prines is set on the lush green hill overhanging Rethymnon. Prines used to be an important place during the Venetian occupation and the church of St. Nicolas dates from the 13th century. All necessary shops can be found in the village, such as 2 supermarkets, a traditional cafe and two tavernas. The village itself is surrounded by olive trees and is ideal for people who like less crowded places and want to be close to a very rich nature.

Rethymnon is very close, offering many and diverse activities and excursions. Where to begin is a difficult decision to make: the picturesque villages, the areas of natural beauty, the caves, the beaches, the high mountains, the historical monuments?

Crete has the most hospitable inhabitants and one of the oldest civilizations of the world.
