The villa is stunning, a real home from home. Private, peaceful and luxurious. The owners have renovated the villa with taste and charm, the perfect mix of modern with traditional vernacular style. The villa is spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a truly relaxing break. We loved sitting in the sunshine on the enormous rooftop terrace during the day. In the evenings we lit the open fire and ate in the kitchen dining room, very romantic. The bed was so very comfy with the softest linens. Fluffy towels provided for the bathroom and for the pool. It was too cold to swim but we sat by the pool and dipped our legs. Pool is a really good size, clean and very inviting. The bathrooms are designed with quality and taste, with the most fabulous showers...we didnt want to get out! Georgia and Dennis were wonderful hosts, they had thought of everything. A fully stocked kitchen with herbs and spices, condiments, sauces. They left us fruit, vegetables, wines, chocolate, bread, cheese even candles ...amazing hospitality! They had thought of everything. Sunlotions, doedorant, fly spray, toothpaste, toilet rolls, ....so well planned. The villa is about a 30 minute drive from the airport, easy to find but we arrived late and lost our way in the dark so rang Dennis and he came out to find us...nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people. Mini markets, beach and restaurants a five minute drive away, perfectly placed close to amenities whilst being peaceful and quiet. Nothing to fault at all .....6 stars! We are looking forward to returning soon, Thank you so very much Georgia and Dennis for making our stay so fabulous, you are the perfect hosts, kisses for Baby the cat. Much love from Chrissie and Pete. xxx

                                                                                                      The Olive House is an excellent holiday destination with easy access to both beaches and mountains ,offering something for everyone . The villa's contemporary design is tasteful and charming and has been well thought out with balconies and seating areas offering breathtaking views down to the sea over the surrounding olive groves or up to the imposing backdrop of the White Mountains . Shade is provided for those who need to hide from the Cretan sun while also allowing plenty of access to the sun worshippers by the pool. It would be possible to spend a tranquil holiday up here on the hill top surveying the delightful rural surroundings, relying on local tavernas to supply evening meals,without venturing any further afield. Yet an easy and pleasant walk along the rural road through olive groves and fruit trees will take one to the buzz of Platanias where restaurants , bars and all sorts of tourist amenities await those who might like to dance the night away .And Chania itself with culture, good restaurants and some serious shopping is only a 15 minute drive away .A great stay - we will definitely be back !
