Perfect for what we needed. Spacious villa with excellent facilities and the pool was perfect for young children, they didn't want to get out!
The villa is a 15minute walk to town, there is no footpath so be a bit careful if walking but it is only around 6 or 7 euros taxi ride.
Would definitely book again.
We are currently here at the villa for a week for a friend's wedding. It's lovely and very accommodating for us and our two babies. Nothing was a problem. Very affordable for the time of year and lovely villa. It's about a fifteen minute walk into the town and beach,lots of restaurants and bars. The closest supermarket is about ten mins walk. All in all I'm loving it here and will be sad to leave. The sea is like a bath but very salty. The only downfall I would say is that it is hard for the local taxis to find the villa. We now know to tell them it is the Marmaria villas. The beds are also quiet hard but each to their own. All in all its wonderful and will be booking gain without a doubt.
We stayed here for 10 days,on arrival we found the toilet was being unblocked also the pool pump was being repaired,what else could go wrong we thought,no wifi and no TV,the wifi was connected after two days as was the TV..but the TV went again and was carted off to be repaired.Then it was the Kettle, that didn't work but it was replaced the same day.The walk into town is quiet far along a busy road with no pavements to walk along,so if you have children be aware of this.This is a nice villa but could probably do with a bit of an update.
A poorly maintained property with a pervading smell of damp and mould especially in the downstairs bedroom and the kitchen cupboards. Had the four of us overlooked the rusty cooker, fridge and microwave enough to choose to self cater, the severe lack of cookware would have made it very difficult. The patio was stained and untidy ( a garden hose takes up a fair amount of the patio) and had only three garden chairs that could be used- hardly enough for a property that is supposed to cater for eight people.
The overall effect is a villa that could be attractive and roomy but is uncared for, dirty and smelly. Its one positive feature is the location - only a 20 minute stroll into Tsilivi with its many shops and restaurants.
We visited Villa Anna in August . We travelled with our daughter 22 and son 17. The villa isn't that far from the airport about a 20 minute journey by taxi for about 23 euros. We hired a car on our 2nd day through the villa rep, which seemed more reasonably priced than if we'd arranged in the UK. The villa has everything you need. We all found the beds too hard, but that seems to be the case in all villas. The pool is not tiled, just painted so it didn't look as clean or as nice as the other villas, but that isn't the case as Keith and his friend (Keith is the maintenance man) where on hand regularly keeping the pool and garden spotless. Keith was also very helpful arranging taxis and helping with directions. We did have a problem with the water on the 2nd day where it basically ran out, but again Keith sorted that and fixed the toilet! What a guy! The villa is a fair walk into town, but I liked it because its nice and quiet and we drove or got a taxi - 5 euros. We drove to Art & Wine which is located at one of the most greenish and loveliest areas of the countryside, a few kms away from the traditional settlement of Maries, It's about 20km away from Zante up in the mountains and well worth a drive as the scenery is beautiful. Its a family run business and the husband paints wonderful murals. I was unsure about greek wines but here are some lovely wines for you to taste and buy. The town is nice with enough bars and restaurants to meet all your needs. Try Gyro land for awesome kebabs. Also, try La Meze Tapas & Wine bar very nice food and service and try the lovely sangria and champagne. Another must, is Shipwreck beach and blue caves so beautiful see attached pictures. Go and enjoy Ann responds quickly to any queries you may have and we received our deposit in full today. Thank you Ann for a lovely holiday.
