Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was the perfect place for our 3 families to holiday together. The location is idyllic with wonderful views back to the mountains and out to sea. The sunsets were stunning! It is fantastically equipped and with such a large group, it was great to have so many possible places to sit, relax, eat and enjoy the heat and scenery. We ate well in the local tavernas (within walking distance)and enjoyed trips to Kardamyli, Ancient Messene, Methoni/Koroni, Mystra and Kalamata - all good days out. The pool was lovely and with the sea so close we had the best of all worlds and plenty of activities to keep all age groups entertained. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa to others.

The perfect place for the perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were totally taken aback when we arrived at the house, it was even better than the pictures. The bedrooms are all large with ensuites and balconies and the views from the balconies are to die for. The well equipt kitchen is also huge, perfect for cooking for large numbers. The double height living room with large flatscreen tv, good range of DVDs and comfortable sofas got a lot of use on the rare occassion it rained.

But the best part was the infinity pool, we spent many a day and night around it, in it and admiring it. A great place to watch the beautiful sunsets and sunrises. We also had a BBQ every night and sat out under the stars drinking the local wine.

The house is so good we barely left, only to get supplies and for a dip in the sea. There are plenty of things to do in the region and we went on one day trip but couldn't wait to get to back to the pool.

You definately need a car to get here as it is quite isolated. We drove from Athens, an easy 3 1/2 hour drive and plenty of things to see on the way.

It was an amazing holiday and I would highly recommend it, in fact I think we will go back next year.

Wonderful Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families that rented this house for about 1 1/2 weeks and had an amazing time there. The house is large. It has a great layout and incredible views - from the pool, from the balconies, from everywhere. There was space for everyone (12 people including kids/teenagers) both inside and outside. Every bedroom was done well and comfortable to be in. The pool is close to the house and it was easy to run back and forth. The photos do not do justice to the house. The area is lovely and we didn't feel it was very touristy, which is what we had wanted. Having someone available to answer questions throughout our stay both about the house, the area, restaurants, store, etc. was very helpful. We've rented summer houses for a number of years now and everyone agreed that this was the nicest property we've been in. Definitely a place to return to!

Luxury villa in Greece

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Olive tree house for 9 nights with a group of 12 friends. The villa was absolutely beautiful, with an amazing view, breathtaking pool, jacuzzi and really nice seating areas for eating and socializing with our group. Indoors were great too, it was easy to cook for such a big group, the AC worked well and the beds were comfy. All communication with the owners and the local contact was easy and helpful. All of us who stayed at the villa were extremely happy with the choice and will recommend Olive tree house to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in Greece!

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Absolutly beautiful villa! Spacious with a fantastic sea view in a quiet area, infinity pool and great outdoor area with bbq facility, hot tub, seating areas and balconys. Rooms are spacious and clean with a modern on suit bathrooms. The living areas are comfortable and large enough to cook and socialise if you would prefer to stay in. The villa has everything you need it's like a home from home and has air con which is a blessing when it's hot! It is in a fab location, around 25-30 mins drive to the airport which is great! Shops, bars and restaurants aren't far either if you want to go out for lunch or dinner, we hired a car during our stay which was helpful. I also felt safe staying at the villa as it has a private Gate and security alarm. I would definitely stay again and recommend, there is plenty to do in the area and the villa is in the perfect location.

Real Greece with all the luxury extras

  • 5 of 5

We hired the villa as a family group aged from 2 to 60, wanting to experience real Greece away from the typical tourist traps. My family totally adored the villa and call it the 5 star heaven. The owners have thought of everything to keep all the family entertained from the fantastic infinity pool, games, a kitchen equipped for any eventuality to the wonderful air conditioning. The local tavernas and shops were exceptionally welcoming as were the staff who look after the property, all of whom made my family feel like they were in a home away from home.. It is simply the best.
