About Sheila Yelland

I have been involved with property for as long as I can remember and when we first visited Begur we thought it a wonderful region and decided to buy a holiday home, Casa Alfora.

We rented it out through a local agent the first year (2001). After that I decided to rent it out myself and since then we have built two more houses and purchased another in Begur all of which are on this site. Gradually I built up a business and we now have our own website featuring property in Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal.

Poros Island, Greece is a very favourite destination of ours where we have Lemon Tree House overlooking the harbour and Olive Tree House on the mainland directly opposite Poros, both with amazing views and both of which are featured on this website.

Home Away has been a very good vehicle for us to market our holiday homes.

Sheila Yelland purchased this villa in 2005

Why Sheila Yelland chose

The peace and tranquility at Olive Tree House are spellbinding. Here are some reviews from our guests:

`We all had a wonderful time and the house was all we expected and more. The location, the views and more importantly,the accommodation itself were fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone who wished to have a relaxing and authentic Greek experience. Galatas itself is a lovely town and we found it a very economical place to dine out. The recommendations from the literature in the house were very helpful in choosing suitable places to eat. We also found Elanova a welcome oasis from the heat and we had some very enjoyable days there thanks to the hospitality of the family who own it. We also found Galatas a good centre to explore the rich history of the area and we had wonderful trips to Athens, Napflio, Tolo and Epidavros. My camera has never been worked so hard taking in the many historical sites that abound. I must finally mention the views from the balcony of the house which are absolutely stunning. especially at night when the sunset view was just magnificent`. D. McInnes 23june-7july 2010

We will have no hesitation in recommending the house to anyone thinking of a Greek holiday in the future.

'Our family have stayed at Olive Tree House and had a wonderful week and really did not want to leave. The views are spectacular and can`t be done justice by a photograph. The sunrise and sunset each day from the terrace was a real highlight.' S. Sword May-June 2009

`We really liked Olive Tree House. It has the most magnificent views and is very well furnished and extremely comfortable, with generously sized rooms. We were able to find good local produce in Galatas, and we enjoyed the restaurants on Poros Island.

`We had a lovely two weeks at Olive Tree House. The area was beautiful and we enjoyed being part of life in Galatas as well as sightseeing and spending time at Elanova and on the beach.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning views. Peaceful environment. Spacious living accommodation. Beautiful beach nearby. Excellent value tavernas at the harbour. Easy access to Poros Island by 24/7 water taxi. Less than 2 minutes.
