Exceeding Expectations .... Again

5 of 5
This was our 5th visit and once again, the constant investment by the owners make the apartment more of a home than just a rental. The apartment was at a very high standard but with the revamp of the bathrooms, the apartment has been even more enhanced. The whole ease of booking right through to arrival with the welcome basket takes away any stress you might get with travelling. The apartment is well equipped, clean and tidy. There is plenty of room on the balcony to enjoy the sun and also for outside drinks & dining. The location is ideal for any travelling you may want to do as good access roads to main highway plus the relaxing side of the nearby beach and coastal walks. Plenty of good restaurants close by. Would thoroughly recommend and are currently reviewing for our next and 6th visit !

Comfortable villa in a nice village

4 of 5
After we realised that the Olympus Palace is now called The Steak House the villa was easy to find. The village has a wide variety of restaurants within walking distance ( quite hilly though) with something to suit all tastes. The villa has a well equiped kitchen and roomy bedrooms. The double bed was comfortable but the singles were not quite as good. The pool was good and welcome on the hot days. The outdoor dining furniture would benefit from upgrading. The owner responded quickly to any queries we had. The villa was clean and in a quite location. We enjoyed our stay.
