About Carolina Wernli Chatzidogiannakis and Stelios Chatzidogiannakis

We are a family with one daughter.

My husband is Greek and I am Swiss. We built the villa for ourselves with much love.

Why Carolina Wernli Chatzidogiannakis and Stelios Chatzidogiannakis chose Hersonissos

The Villa was built with much love and with all amenities.

What makes this villa unique

We fall in love with the village of Old Chersonissos, because it's a typical, beautiful little Village.

The Villa is located in a peaceful area, 500 m from the main square, where you can find several restaurants, mini-market, pharmacy and bakery. During the high season, in the square is normally organised a "Cretan Night" with music and dancing.

Old Chersonissos is only 21 km from Heraklion, 3 km from the sea and from a bigger village.

Villa Anna in Old Hersonissos With Private Swimming Pool

Amazing Villa spacious spotless and owners couldn't have been more helpful

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing two weeks family holiday in Crete at this beautiful villa, the villa had everything!! Stunning Pool area with BBQ, tastefully decorated throughout we would

recommend this villa and hopefully will return!! The owners Stelios and Carolina were very welcoming and helpful and always on hand if needed. The villa was a 2 minute walk to Old Hersonnisos village which was stunning lots of traditional tavernas, bakery, and village inn, all restaurants were gorgeous food could not be faulted. 5 minute taxi drive to Hersonnisos harbour and more lively bars too. Crete is a beautiful island and has the best of everything to cater for all tastes.

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the spacious Villa Anna. It was well appointed and beautifully maintained. The pool was enjoyed by all family members throughout the holiday, providing many hours of fun and games. On our only wet day the table tennis in the basement provided enough entertainment to forget about the weather. Secluded and private however close to shops and tavernas.( walking distance. Stelios (owner) was the perfect host and always only a phone call away. We will definitely be coming back.

This is a beautiful villa that far exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

So pleased with the villa and the location. The villa is situated within the old village of Hersonissos. A very short walk from a selection of traditional restaurants and small shops. The coastal resort of Hersonissos was only a 40 minute walk away and we probably walked down to the coast most days. There are a further 2 villages in the hills above the coast all within easy walking distance of Hersonissos so there is plenty of choice for drinks and food. We were a group of 6 adults, Mum, Dad, our sons and their partners. The villa was spacious and offered plenty opportunities for us all to sit together or separately. We thought we would eat in the villa most nights as we had a BBQ and lovely outdoor seating areas but we tended to walk into the village and visited the restaurants. I think we managed to visit all 10 restaurants in the village and enjoyed them all. We were never disappointed with food choices throughout the holiday. Stelios was so attentive and invited us to pick fruit from his orchard and vegetable plot. We felt as though we were truly able to experience Cretan culture at first hand. Staff in the restaurants and coffee shops were also very friendly and welcoming towards tourists. We hired cars to see a bit more of the island but if you didn't want to do that there are plenty of little shops in the coastal resort offering trips. There were also 4 bicycles at the villa. Our eldest son and his partner cycled to the resort of Malia - not as pretty as the villages here but they enjoyed the cycle. The villa is spotlessly clean with Stelios and his assistant maintaining the pool and grounds, cleaning the inside of the villa and changing linen and towels every three days. This is one of the best holidays we have experienced and we would love to come back. Would certainly recommend this property and the island of Crete.

Lovely villa in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that the service we received from stelios and Carolina was excellent!

communications were excellent, the villa was beautiful and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

There are lovely little tavernas just a 5 minute walk away, we hired a car and ventured to the coast which was a 10 minute drive, we enjoyed the restaurants along the beach at night, just for a change of scenery.

Thank you for all your help stelios and accommodating for our baby with a cot and high chair.

Don't look any further

  • 5 of 5

The seven of us visited last week (4 generations, 2-78) and we were ALL blown away by the villa, the owner and the area. Everything we needed for a family holiday was within reach, and Stelios even took us out on his boat to catch our own fish for the barbeque !

Monday night at Zachos in the square was an experience not to forget and we will return to Villa Anna !

Thank you Stelios (and Carolina)

Fabulous villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was comfortable and very tastefully furnished. Amazing gardens including a veg patch where we picked tomatoes figs lemons and cucumbers each day. Owners exceptionally friendly and helpful. location ideal as few 100 metres to very attractive village with a selection of tavernas and grocers and bread shop. Few kms to seafront and main town of Hersonnisus. Big drive way with electric gates so parking easy.

I would recommend this villa for its high standard of furnishing and facilities, for the friendly owners and their personal touches and its location in relation to the village and sea front and easy access to main roads for visiting other parts of Crete.
