It has everything you could need and we enjoyed our stay here. The only issue we had was a very noisy dog that lived opposite and barked all night which kept my mum awake as she slept on the sofa bed in the lounge.

                                                                                                  From the moment we drove up the drive and were greeted warmly by John and excitedly by Ellie the dog we know we were going to enjoy our stay at Olive Tree Cottage. John cooked us a delicious home cooked meal the 1st evening we were there of - Greek Salad, spicy meatball, taziki, sun ripened tomato bread, pitta bread and lemon cheesecake (just the start of wonderful tasting home cooked goodies from John over the next week). From the terrace outside the cottage you have a stunning view over the olive trees and out across Lagana Bay. The steps from the terrace lead down to the lawn under the shade of lemon and Olive trees with a table and chairs. Next to here is the pool with a covered area, sun terrace, hammock, sun beds and pool. If you are looking for a quiet typically Greek style holiday Olive Tree Cottage is for you, it's very relaxing. It is ideally suited to a couple. We very much appreciated John's "little parcels" of home made/home grown goods (marmalade, croissants, saganki cheese, fresh figs). John made us feel as if we really were home from home, he advised us of places to eat locally - we tried and recommend Zepos. The trunk on the terrace contains an array of games and books should you want to use them. Ellie the dog loves to have company and would come most morning and evening to make sure we were ok, which as animal lovers we enjoyed. The lane up to the cottage is quite uneven and the drive very steep so we would suggest that a jeep or vehicle of similar height would be best - we did however manage in our hired Skoda fabia but it wasn't easy. On our last evening John had a BBQ for two friends who had come over from UK to help John with some ground maintainenance and asked us tp join them - once again John's cooking was out of this world - homemade garlic bread, greek salad, tomatoes with melted feta and Olive Oil (John's own oil), beetroot and onion salad, Jacket potato, bbq'd marinated pancetta chops,, chicken drumsticks, fresh large prawn, vegetable kebabs, calamari, followed by bbq rum banana/pineapple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the only downside for us we only booked 7 days! If we could give 10 stars we would.

                                                                                                  The owner - Sai - has three 2-bed villas on a large plot with really well kept gardens. He lives in one and the other two are for holiday rents sharing a good sized pool. The villas are well equipped, clean and spacious with air conditioning in the downstairs open-plan living area and each of the bedrooms with balconies on the top floor and shaded seating / eating areas at the front and back. There is a great stone barbecue area with separate fire pits for each villa which Sai keeps well stocked with wood and charcoal. In terms of location - it's a 25 minute walk from the coast but the beaches along there are a bit limited - for pure beach sunbathing / swimming then there are lots of options - we favoured Daphne beach and Banana beach about a 25 min drive away but we really liked the nearby Keri beach - a 5/10 min drive away - with good sea- view restaurants and a great place to hire a small motorboat to go exploring the coastline - including Keri caves. You have a good chance of seeing some turtles too. Sai is a really nice guy who couldn't do enough to make the holiday go well - he has lots of restaurant recommendations and encouraged us to pick ripe figs from the garden. Don't let the fact that Sai lives on the site put you off - he is careful not to intrude on your personal space or family time and was very patient with my children's incessant questions when looking after the pool etc. His communication was good throughout the booking process and in the run-up to the holiday & he has even posted us back a couple of things we failed to pack - sending us off with a large bottle of his home-made olive oil that he makes from the olive trees in the garden! If you're looking for a quiet relaxing spot to base yourself from I recommend this place - the family in the other villa were there for 3 weeks and that was their third time there - I guess you can't really get a better recommendation than that.
