DETACHED SECLUDED COUNTRY VILLA IN OLIVE GROVE WITH PANORAMIC SEA-MOUNTAIN VIEW

Kos Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom country villa in an olive grove with roof terrace, balconies & garden

The Olive Branch has a Licence from the Greek Tourist Board (MHTE 1471K10000396901), a Fire Certificate, Water Quality Certificate and Public Liability Insurance. It is set in 4000 sq m of olive grove and well stocked gardens full of flowers, herbs and fruit trees - to which you can help yourselves!.

The Olive Branch Villa is available for rental all year round - in the winter it is with central heating and I can assure you the views are as amazing in the Winter as they are in the Summer.... Clients arrive here from Rhodes/Athens and Bodrum which makes it easy to get to all year round.

We can also organise Greek Lessons, Yoga, Greek Home Cooking Courses, Greek Dancing Lessons, Hippocrates and Herbs as well as many other things you may be interested in - everything is possible - also in a variety of languages - just email us for more information.

The house is on 3 levels - on the ground floor there are 3 bedrooms - 3 doubles and a large bathroom with bath/shower,toilet. All bedrooms have access to the terrace that surrounds the house. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms (1 with two single beds and one with double bed), shower room with toilet and spacious open plan kitchen/diner/living room leading on to main balcony with spectacular views down to the salt lakes and sea and over to the islands of Kalymnos and Pserimos. The sun sets over Kalymnos so the views of the sunset are incredible.

Stairs then lead up to the laundry area which leads to the roof terrace with Panoramic views - mountain as well as sea. Amazing sunsets and stargazing - a new edition this year is a telescope for all the star gazing enthusiasts!!!

We hope that you have anything you need here to include 24 hr internet WIFI, Cable TV - if there is anything else you may need let us know and we will see what we can do!!!

We try to have everything you may need in the house - there is a Picnic Basket and ice packs, 4 sunbeds, beach umbrellas, various beach toys for children to name but a few things.....

There are plenty of hosepipes around the garden too for outside showers!

The Olive Branch Villa is just 2 minutes walk away from the amazing Panorama Taverna - excellent food and wine and homely atmosphere - everyone that goes there ends up going back several times.....

WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO DO: The Olive Branch Villa is located in the centre of the island. If you hire a car (or bring your own) it is a great base. There is so much to do here - tours to the Sponge Divers Island of Kalymnos, the Volcano Nissyros, trips to Turkey, Greek Evening, sunset cruise, pinics with BBQ etc can all be booked at Tingaki. Diving is available from the harbour in Kos Town as well as Kardamena. Horse riding along the beach at sunset is available at the Salt Lakes - as well as daily rides.

Watersports are available on various parts of the island - Tingaki, Kardamena, Kefalos and Marmari. There are bananas, pedalos, windsurfing, jetski and paragliding to name but a few....

Private top of the range speed boat hire is also available (details on request). If you like cycling mountain bikes are also available to hire. If you like walking......there are too many walks to mention here. If you like going off road Kos is the place and views are amazing!

From the Olive Branch Villa there are also a lot of amazing walks!!!!

KOS IN GENERAL: Kos is a wonderful place - there is everything you can think of here. It takes about 3 days to drive around the island. There are beautiful beaches and bays at Kefalos as well as neolithic caves, the ruins of the Basilica of St Stephen and the monasteries of St John and Saint Theologos. Limnionas is an amazing little fishing harbour. Antimachia has an old traditional house, windmill and castle of the Knights of St John. Kardamena has the windfarm (amazing walk up and views), lovely beaches and watersports together with the ruins of the Temple of Appollon and also a traditional village museum on the harbour. (Kardamena also has great nightlife). Mastichari is a beautiful fishing village on the sea with lots of great fish tavernas and is where boats go across to Kalymnos. Marmari has nice beaches. Tingaki has a sandy beach and very shallow water - also a great nightlife together with traditional tavernas. Last but not least there is Kos Town which has everything from shops - tavernas - nightlife - ruins!!!

MOUNTAIN VILLAGES: 3 Minutes away from the Olive Grove are the traditional mountain villages of Evangelistria, Assomatos, Lagoudi and Zia. Zia is the main village with lots of shops selling traditional goods - hand made tablecloths, crocheted work, lace, herbs and oils. The views from up here are breathtaking. Lagoudi is a traditional village with one cafe nion (little cafe) run by Dionissia and Antonis - it is basic but truly Greek. The menu is limited but excellent - Dinonissia is the best cook in the world. If you are lucky, Antonis might play the 'violi' and sing - he also speaks Italian! Then there is Christina's Antique and Coffee shop... Walks up here are incredible - you will not believe the views.

The Olive Branch Villa is owned by us - Kayt (English) and Manos (Greek) - apart from the villa which is our life - we are fanatic about producing the best olive oil, soap and soap for the washing machine as well as olive oil pate, herbal oils etc etc etc - we love the Olive Branch and we love the 'Good Life' - we enjoy the peace, harmony, wellness and good vibes that are here - we are sure you will feel the same....

Karen Lysons Hatzidimitriou purchased this villa in 2001

We bought this piece of land after a very long search - over many years - when we came here we realised 'this is it' - the views are incredible and I have still not found a piece of land with views similar to this. Close to all amenities and yet far enough away to be private.......

Panoramic sea and mountain views - healthy air - spacious - great gardens and wonderful olive oil and soap!!!!!!!!! And of course, the Wild Mountain Thyme, Oregano, St John's Wort and Rosemary to name but a few - the scents are amazing......

The Olive Branch Villa has the benefit of also being available for rental for winter holidays, It has full central heating and the views are as amazing in the Winter as the Summer. Most of the clients thaat rent the Olive Branch Villa do not come on Charter flights - most people either come via Athens, Bodrum or Rhodes and these places have flights all year round.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Olive Branch Villa in July and we had a very good time, not just because the house is absolutely beautiful and very clean, but the thing that impressed us the most was the wonderful welcome we received.
Karen was very kind and caring with us not only on aur arrival, but throughout our stay made ​​us feel at home, leaving us tips on where to eat, where to go and what to do.
We have never found a home so provided and such an attention to details, so well-organized we felt like staying in our house.
We recommend staying at The Olive Branch Villa to anyone wants to go on holidays in a wonderful and hospitable place.

The best place I have ever stayed in Greece!

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely unique. It is beautiful situated in a olive grove, and at the same time one can enjoy amazing sunsets from its large windows and the beautiful balconies. On the other side of the villa the views to the green mountains of Kos makes you feel like you are in Switzerland. Five bedrooms each one with its own balcony. I huge bathroom and a smaller second one. The owners are the most wonderful people. It is an absolutely friendly place for families with young kids like mine. Close to everything and yet very quiet. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels, villas, apartments in several Greek islands. This one is the best place I have ever stayed. I wish I can go back every year!

Truly Amazing House

  • 5 of 5
The Olive Grove is located on the hillside at Zipari. The panorama view from the roof terrace is just amazing and the garden is so beautiful too. We watched sun rise, sun set and dramatic thunder lightning storms all from the balcony of the house. Karen and Manos are such good hosts and extremely thoughtful. They left us nice toiletries, a lovely welcome basket and all the necessities in the fridge. Their attention to details are second to none. The house is also very clean and spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. We also took their advice from the guidebook for places to go. The walk to the castle and Zia park is definitely our highlights of the trip. We also enjoyed Tingaki beach, Asklepione and thermal bath. The taverna next door serves fresh homemade food. We also found that the local people are very helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed Kos and The Olive Grove, will definitely come back again.

Magnificent house, view and the owners

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are one big travellers, mostly in hotels because we love the comfort and clean environment. After spending one week in the hotel in Kos island I decided to try renting a villa.

And we did. The Olive grove. We were blown away!
The house is beautiful. THE view was the most romantic I have ever had in Greece.
We were there for a week with our small dog Happy and gosh, we all were happy there!! Peacefulness brought my love to yoga on the roof terrace every morning and evening which I will never forget.

House is located in the beautiful surrounding of olives, you can see the mountains and the sea, rooms are spacious and I loved the overall architecture!

You need a car though to transfer yourself from city to the house but is really worth it.

I would definitely recommend to rent this house, being in par or big group, since the house id really big and spacious :)

FANTASTIC WEEK in Kos

  • 5 of 5
Resuming our daily routine was not easy after the fantastic week spent at the Olive Grove... I was part of a group of 8 young people and we really had a great time there!
The house is very spacious, comfortable and located in a strategical position - 15 minutes away from Kos Town and 10 minutes from Tingaki beach on scooter, with a beautiful view from the terrace!
If you are planning to spend a week in Kos, you should without doubt choose the Olive Grove - Karen and Manos, the owners, will make you feel home and help for any require!
We could visit all the island (don't miss the Asklepion, Paradise Beach and Empros Thermes!) also thanks to the kind scooter renters, who even collected us the scooters at the Olive Grove!
If you are looking for Kos specialties, take the soft soap made by Karen and Manos and the tasty olive oil - produced by them too!
Concluding my review, just one last word: "Efharistò" Karen and Manos!

Notes:
The bedrooms and large bathroom on the ground floor are suitable for wheelchairs. However the kitchen is based on the first floor which is up a flight of stairs. However, if you are caring for someone and they just want to relax in their room or sit out on the terrace and maybe have a BBQ outside, this is a wonderful place to be. The hot water is heated by solar panels - however there is an electric booster just in case you run out. The house has full central heating for the winter which also heats the hot water. The Olive Grove was built in 2001 originally as a family home. It is being repainted March 2013. We do not have any carpets in the house only rugs which are changed and washed every week. We provide an Information Book on Kos and can also arrange car/jeep/landrover hire - even motorbikes and bicycles. All matress covers and pillows are washed on departure.
