Perfect place to stay for a special occasion

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and i were lucky enough to stay at the fantastic Villa Olivia for my birthday celebration. Apart from our problem with flights!!!!! everything else was perfect. The villa was as described, but met our needs in an even better way. We were able to visit the island and have the luxury of returning home to a spacious roof terrace with spa pool and bar to relax in before heading to the local Taverna Marmita for dinner. We did also cook in and found the kitchen ideal for our requirements. The villa is in great condition and maintained to a high standard. The owners were there to greet us on arrival and were most helpful with ideas and suggested places to go and things to do.I would most certainly recommend the Villa Olivia for anyone who enjoys a luxury break.

VILLA OLIVIA IN MEGALOCHORI FOR AN AUTHENTIC HOLS

  • 5 out of 5
A couple of mates and I have just returned from a week-long trip to Santorini and we could not be happier with our choice of villa. Michael, the owner, very kindly helped us sort out a car for the trip (a quad or car is a must) which we picked up at the airport from Babis who greeted us outside. We followed Babis from the rental place to Megalochori, which was a short drive from the airport.
Our first impression of the village was that it was quaint, being tucked away from the hustle and bustle and tourist traps one might find in a popular destination, but also picturesque, arguably offering up the best views of island – the sunset from nearby Santos Winery gives Oia a run for its money.
We met Michael at the villa. Not much to add to comments made by the other reviewers, the villa was indeed better than the pictures could convey. It was clean, comfortable and inviting. As there were only three of us, we had more than enough space and I only wish a few more of our mates had joined. Michael is knowledgeable and friendly, and he filled us in on the must-see sites, local knowledge, etc. which was most welcome. For those looking to work on their tans, the terrace is perfect and most definitely a sun trap. From our view up top, the nearby villas could not compete in that respect.
The villa is fantastic, but the real gem is Megalochori itself. This traditional village is perfectly placed between all of the spots we wanted to visit (10 min to Red Beach; 15 min to Kamari/Perissa/Fira; 30 min to Oia taking the scenic route) and at no point on our hols did we wish we’d chosen anywhere else to stay. Just a short walk from the villa there are a number of little shops where you can pick up the basics, and a great little bakery where you can get fresh bread and homemade ice cream. There are a number of lovely and reasonably priced restaurants, each as good as the next. The taverna in the square, Raki, is the liveliest of the bunch and seemed to always be full of tourists and locals alike. The little Italian restaurant attached to it is fantastic. The night we dined there, our last in Santorini, there was a woman playing a harp just above. It was truly an idyllic setting to end our Greek adventure.
So to summarise, Villa Olivia in the lovely Megalochori will not disappoint and is highly recommended to those who would prefer a traditional feel of Santorini!

Perfect Place in Santorini

  • 5 out of 5
Our family were very happy with our stay at Villa Olivia. The houses were definitely as advertised and in fact the pictures did not do it justice. Reality was better than the picture which is hardly ever the case! This is not a place for a person with difficulty with stairs as the steps up to the veranda are quite steep and treacherous but well worth the climb. We loved the village of Megalohori and the Raki cafe. You will need a car if you stay here but Michael arranged everything for us and it was perfect!

Excellent base in a traditional village

  • 5 out of 5
The villa layout, 2 buildings, was ideal for our base for a daughter's wedding. There were 6 of us; we, the grandparents used the house with the kitchen whilst our married daughter/husband/2 grandchildren used the 2 bedroomed house which gave us all some privacy. The ground level patio was secure and gave some shade at most parts of the day. Access to the roof terrace was a challenge due to the steep steps but on one day we had a party for 17 "oldies", some with mobility problems but everyone got to the roof which did not feel crowded. The villa conversion has been very well done and has good furnishings. Megalochori is a traditional inland village, it is a 5 - 10 minute uphill walk to the nearest bus stop, there are 7 restaurants within an easy 5 minute walk. The crunch question, would we return? yes - in an instant, Michael's help and response to queries were fantastic and his local support was always available. I highly recommend.

Wedding and Trip of Our Dreams!

  • 5 out of 5
First of all, we would like to say that Michael was so helpful and nice and really made our stay a pleasure. He arranged someone to pick us up at the airport, left us a nice food basket, and a bottle of champagne on the day of our wedding! He also connected us with the local vehicle rental, Mike's Bikes, and had them drive over the quads to our villa. We stayed at this property with our friends for 1 week. My husband and I stayed in the main villa with the kitchen and our friends stayed in the adjacent villa. We decided to get married on the terrace above the villas. It was so nice for us to be able to get ready in our villas and then just walk up the stairs for the ceremony! It was a beautiful view with the Megalochori clock tower. We were going to have the reception up there too, but because of the cold weather (rare for Santorini, but it was April), we decided to have it at Marmitos restaurant right across the clock tower square. The owner, Andreas, and his staff were so wonderful to host us (a group of 12) at the last minute and the food is AMAZING! They let us bring over our wedding cake early in the afternoon and held it in their fridge for us until dinner. After the wedding we stayed in Santorini for the honeymoon. The property felt very luxurious and clean. Michael and his property manager were always available whenever we had any questions. There's also a bakery up the walkway from the villa that is awesome. They have fresh pastry, breads, and treats everyday and great coffee. We would recommend this property to anyone - it's gorgeous and the village of Megalochori is a wonderful place to stay. It's quiet and less touristy than Fira or Oia. Everyone was no nice! Thanks again!

P.S. We understand that it's intimidating to book anything online in a foreign country. We've lived in the U.S. our whole lives and speak english. If anyone has any questions or would like a referral feel free to call us - we'd like to help in anyway we can. 5o9.951.482o

Excellent villa in charming surroundings!

  • 5 out of 5
When looking for accommodation for our one-week holiday on Santorini in September this year, the villa's web site showed a very good choice for the six of us (three couples in two generations). And even better did we get! Spacious but cosy set of two houses with privacy, rooms furnished with good taste, beautiful courtyard, very nice roof terrace with hot tub and barbecue, and so on. In spite of all the pleasures the rate of the villa is very reasonable.
The village around the villa, Megalochori, is charming and peaceful. There are three good restaurants very near to the villa. Also a good, well assorted bakery within a short walk and a nice small family winery (Gavalas) next door. All main villages of the island are quite easily reached by bus or taxi, and other attractions by 4-wheel bikes, for example, if you like some adventure. To name only a few different kinds of places, Ancient Thira, Faros and Red Beach are all worth visiting.
Michael, the owner, was welcoming us with a basket of eatables and wine when we arrived. He was very nice and friendly arranging transportations from port and to airport, ordering us Volcano and sunset cruises, helping to rent bikes, etc. We are grateful for all his help and advice during our stay.
In all, it is hard to imagine a better accommodation for a holiday on the Santorini island which we all wish to revisit some day!
