Why Steven Clarke-Lens chose Ellomeno
Space is true luxury. Villa Octavius has many unique relaxation areas from hammock tower to Jacuzzi garden, fire table outdoor lounge seating and more.
What makes this Villa unique
One of the great things about our location is that we are on the top of a small hill so we have fantastic views in all directions. The sea and small islands are stunning. We also have a wonderful local Taverna which just a sort walk away from the villa. Also we have several restaurants that deliver food direct to the villa so no need to cook just relax and enjoy the wonderful views while you eat. Steve can take our guests out on a great Marine Adventure day by boat. We provide snorkeling equipment and be your captain and guide. We will visit coves, caves and islands. A high light of the trip will be catching an Octopus to to show and explain about its life before releasing it again to the wild. This is a great day out which most of our guests love.
