Just returned from a wonderfully relaxing holiday at Olea Prime Villa ! The photos do not do the villa justice - the villa itself is modern and beautifully designed.The pool large and we particularly loved the covered lounging area at the end of the pontoon. It was welcome shelter from the sun, with fabulous sea views and a lovely cooling sea breeze. George and Alex could not have been more attentive and helpful both before and after our arrival and the villa was cleaned everyday - Service they provided was as good as any 5* hotel. Can't think of anything negative to say - other than go , relax and enjoy! PS: There's a lovely Taverna 5 mins walk from the house and 5 minutes in the car is Marathi with a handful of restaurants. Service and food was better at local Taverna if you don't fancy cooking

Fabulous villa with great views and only 10 minute walk in to the village

5 of 5
The villa was very well appointed with everything you would need even for an extended stay. The main balcony off the kitchen and living area is superb with views to the bay and is a great place to relax and dine - we spent a lot of time chatting and playing cards late into the evening on here. The pool was large compared to some we have stayed at with plenty of space to sit in sun or shade. There is also lots of nice walking around the valley. Although we used a car most days to go to the beach at Almyrida it is around 45 min walk and best done early for some shade. We have stayed in this area quite a few times now and enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the beach front restaurants.
