Having arrived in the middle of the night, the next morning we walked on the balcony and was staggered by beautiful views. Rolling hillsides with Olive trees, mountains in the background and a wonderful view of the Messiniakos Gulf. The view of the infinity pool and jacuzzi was eye catching too!
The accommodation was perfect, we had 8 adults and 5 children in our party, all our requirements for a happy stay were met. The bedrooms were comfortable, the lounge areas were large, and the kitchen was more than adequate. We particularly like the dining area outside, and the barbecue area. The position of the villa is ideal for coastal towns and beaches. In particular Kardamili and Stoupa. The boat trip out of Kalamata to Kitries is a must. The pedalos at Kalamata were fun for the children ( ages 6 to 12 ). We also found excellent restaurants at Kardamili and Stoupa, but our best one was 300metres away on the hill above us.Excellent food and views, and wonderful service! Dirou caves are worth a visit too. On a more practical note, we found Lidl's very convenient for our main shopping, on the coast road towards Kalamata. We discovered an untapped Greece to the south of the Peloponnese, which we loved.Above all our contact Joanna was excellent, she couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our wonderful holiday
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We think it's a piece of heaven so happy you enjoyed it too. Hope to see you back at some point!
Wonderful Vacation House
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!
Thank you that's lovely to hear. So glad you enjoyed the place. Hopefully we will see you again in the not too distant future!
Luxury villa in Greece
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!
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.
Great - thanks for your review - we are glad that you enjoyed your stay.
Real Greece with all the luxury extras
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.
Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Greece and especially at Olive Tree House. We hope you will come any stay again soon.
The perfect place for the perfect holiday
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.
I am delighted that you had such a wonderful time and made the most of the infinity pool! Look forward to welcoming you back next year. Ann
