                                                          Wonderful villa, fabulous hosts - Perfect holiday

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          If you want a place that is peaceful, beautiful, and a private oasis as your “base of operations” for relaxing and exploring you can’t go wrong with Villa Olive. The villa was much better than we expected and fitted out to a very high specification. Mike and Lucy were the perfect hosts helping us plan our holiday from great local restuarants and tavernas like Mylos, fabulous beaches and Mike organised our favourites day out on his boat topped off with an outstanding meal at a remote fish taverna. Every little detail in this villa has been thought of from the welcome pack on arrival to the fluffy bath robes and home made plum jam. We will definitely return to this beautiful villa.

                                                          Simply one of the best holidays we have had. We were 2 families (2 adults and 3 year old each family). The Hotel.gr (rental company) was amazing and responded to all of our questions straight away. The villa owner (Elena) was exceptional in terms of helping us and making sure we are welcomed. Even her uncle came to airport so we could follow him to villa and not get lost. The villa is very clean and new and everything just works. We didn't have to buy any home general shopping like tolls, washing liquid, shampoo....everything was fully provided. The villa is very close to really nice family beaches and nearby to a local bakery, super market and even lidl. The pool is nice and clean and local tavern is quite good. Over all couldn't be happier. many thanks to thehotel.gr and mega thanks to Elena for her super hospitality.

                                                          Relaxing under the Cretan sun !

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We (4 adults) enjoyed our week at the house. The owner Mary is very friendly and puts a lot of effort in making our holiday as comfortable as possible. On arrival there was wine, fruits and a great homemade chocolate cake. The house itself ? One of the best we have ever rented. A very large pool and garden with indeed extreme privacy. In the house lots of space and enough bathrooms. The house is well maintained and very clean ! So a house we can recommend to everyone who would like to spend some time on beautiful Crete !
