Olive View hosted by Julie, lived upto and exceeded all our expectations from the very first minute to when we left 4 days later. The tranquility of the area having driven through some very typical resort style areas from Heraklion made it all the more perfect. The small village with its local taverna when combined with the outstanding view over the olive growing valley, and only a short drive up the hill to Neapoli, a lively local district town, places the property in an ideal location for exploring further afield, away from the hustle and bustle and the more known tourist areas of the north and east coasts.
The complete renovation of a former derelict barn by Julie has been tastefully done, with attention to detail well beyond expectation. The furniture and fittings used all complement each other and makes the stay at Olive View all the more enjoyable.
Julie’s knowledge of the area from over 25 years experience in the location helped greatly. She was able to point out various locations and sites not on the tourist map which were a MUST to see.
We can highly recommend Julie’s Olive View to those travellers seeking something traditional and representative of the local life on Crete.
A small mountain village with traditional charming houses and kind people. There is a very good local tavern at the village with small variety of food but really good in case that you do not want to do anything and stay at home.The villa was perfect for my family as we were 4 persons and it has 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the kitchen huge a very equipped. The owners were very helpful and the made a very good welcome for us with greek coffee and traditional sweets. This that we liked the most was the serenity of the place ,the magnificent view and the natural beauty of the landscape. Everything was nice except the lack of a bakery at the village.
