A lovely villa in a fabulous village that made for an idyllic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Olivia was exactly as described. The local team were incredibly helpful and welcoming.

The pool and jacuzzi were maintained daily. Both were well used by us all.

The villa's terraces afford some beautiful views of the island and were a great place to relax. However the steps up are steep which may be a consideration for some. Our teenagers tended to stay on the lower level, by the pool, because the Wi-Fi was better there!

The villa is in a traditional village and close to local restaurants and mini marts and shops selling some lovely local crafts. Although went on a couple of excursions, we could have easily spent the whole week in the villa and village. With that said, Santorini is amazing. It's a stunning island with some amazing history so it is worth forcing yourself out of the villa for!

Our family loved our time at Villa Olivia and recommend it to others.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Really good location with 2 nice areas for relaxing outside, the smaller patio on the ground floor and the excellent roof terrace.

The villa is unusual – and/or quirky – but exactly as described on the site, 2 properties that are adjacent to each other. It's literally a 1 minute walk from the village centre but it is quiet and peaceful.

The local property co-ordinator Dimitris (along with his wife Gabriella), was a real star – friendly and incredibly helpful – a great ambassador for Santorini and Greece. Thank you Dimitris.

Santorini is fantastic and this is a great base for a holiday on the island.

A Dream

  • 5 of 5

This villa is an absolute dream. We were a group of 8 friends (4 couples) in our mid-to-late twenties, and we all enjoyed our stay immensely. There is more than enough living space inside, though we spent the majority of our time outside, both in the courtyard and the rooftop terrace. The terrace was our favorite part of the house - with views of the sea and the village, a hot tub, and plenty of furniture to lounge on, it was incredible. We also found the location in the charming village of Megalochori to be perfect. It is less than a 2 minute walk to the main square with several taverns, the Gavalas winery and a mini mart; it is a 10 minute walk to either bus stop (going in to Fira one way or going to the southern part of the island the other way); there is a wonderful bakery and a souvlaki shop both located on the main road (same road as the bus stops) that are each about a 10 minute walk from the villa. This is a perfect central location to stay while you explore the island. We did not rent a car and used the bus to get to everywhere we needed, and explored everywhere from the southern tip to Oia with ease.

The owners were also very helpful (arranged transport to pick us us from the port and take us to the airport for departure) in the planning part before the trip, as well as while we were there.

We still can't believe we found such an incredible place in our budget - this is an incredible value!

Versatile accommodation in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

It's a very easy and very short walk to the village square and it's much quieter and more private than staying in places like Fira and Oia. Michael and Dimitri were really helpful, as were others in the village. Would definitely recommend this property and this village!
