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.

The villa was clean and tidy and the views were breath takingly stunning. The bedrooms were simple but exceptionally clean and comfortable. My bedroom had a seating area outside which was very nice. I have to say that out of all the villas we have ever been to this one was the most well equipped one ever. All we needed to buy was the food. The owners left us a welcome pack of wine, Greek biscuits, olive oil toiletries and lots of information on what activities to do and sights to visit. The journey from the airport was straight forward until we got nearer to the villa where the roads began to become more narrow, windy and steep. It was a bit of a hairy drive to the villa but we did rent an old banger of a car unfortunately. The villa itself is very remote quite high up a mountain but it was so peaceful and quiet. The only small gripe would be the wifi was very poor but to be honest it only effected the teens and their daily Facebook intake! Also everyone had to take showers one at a time because it affected the temperature and pressure but we all managed it very well. We were very sad to leave. I would definitely like to rent this villa again, it really was lovely.

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.
