We were met by our host Mike when we arrived at the ungodly hour of 2am. A delicious meal had been prepared by his wife Lucy which we devoured. They were also kind enough to provide us with a bottle of wine and other essentials! The house enjoys a lofty situation surrounded by magnificent olive groves and views which are spectacular. It was impeccably clean, wonderfully spacious and has been designed with great attention to detail. It is really beautiful. The pool was sublime. At the end of our stay we were rather stymied by an 11am changeover and late flight but Mike invited us to spend the afternoon with them swimming off their boat and lunching at a nearby taverna. I cannot praise the Olive House or our hosts too highly, nothing was too much trouble for them.

It is exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owner could not have done anything else make our holiday moe enjoyable. We were able to pick fresh herbs and lemons from the beautiful garden; a welcome meal and drinks were provided on our arrival, which was wonderful We were also given home made produce, which was all delicious. The views from the balconies are stunning with mountains on the right and the sea to the left. The pool was fabulous to swim in with no chemical smells and always clean. The owner was always on hand to answer questions but we never felt intruded upon. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villas, it is a very special place.

The bedrooms have air-con and fans. We never used the air-con as having the shutters open and using the fans was more than adequate. The outdoor space is excellent with tables and chairs for everyone. Sun loungers are provided round the pool. We were in the lovely pool everyday. We always have a car and there is private parking. The owners are excellent with communication if you have any questions, I emailed and always had a response the same day. Overall we had an excellent time and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
