“Amazing!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The Villa Olea is a beautiful property. The villa itself is well appointed, with everything you need in the kitchen, comfortable seating areas, really comforable beds (very important), lovely landscaping, etc. The property and the pool/hot tub were very well maintained. It's one of the most impressive looking villas in the area, and we felt very lucky to have found this place. George was a fantasic property owner/host. He found us when we were lost on the way to the villa (we were very jetlagged) and took us straight there. He checked on us the next day, brought us a delicious baked custard pie from his wife and gave us a going away gift. The villa is right across the road from a lovely beach that we visited every day. There are a few tavernas right in the area that we also visited almost every day that were recommended to us by George. We absolutely can't wait to go again.

“Truly Amazing!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The best vacation we could ever ask for! I really mean it when I say that everything was PERFECT. The villa was far more beautiful than we all imagined. This is the first time that the villa itself is more beautiful than the promotional pictures!
The location of the villa is perfect. Very quiet, relaxing, and the view is just breathtaking! The rooms, facilities, Tv's, BBQ set, Hot Tub, Pool, the kitchen, Everything was just top notch.
The owner is really really nice and fulfill every single need you'll have with a big smile and great pleasure.

I'm sure that we'll be back on Olea Villas, And I'll recommend this villa to everyone visiting Crete.
Thank you for the awesome experience! :)

“Affordable 5 Star Luxury Villa”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We came in on a late flight and the owner met us in person at the airport to ensure our transfer to the villa was as smooth as possible and from then on the friendly 5 star service continued. The properties are brand new and beautifully architect designed; contemporary, but in sympathy with the local landscape and environment. The villa was the best equipped I have ever experienced with everything from flat screen TVs in every room to a Nespresso coffee maker with complimentary coffee pods replaced each morning by the maid. There was a large, clean barbecue and no shortage of kitchen equipment including that villa holiday rarity, sharp knives. The property was unobtrusively and discreetly looked after throughout our stay; the maid cleaned and tidied daily and the pool area was kept immaculate. This was a perfect rental for a group of adults or a family with teenage or younger children.

“Fabulous relaxing week spent in Olea Villas”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

This was the best family holiday we have ever been on. The villa itself was amazing with more top of the range facilities than you could imagine. The pool was perfect with a beautiful view and there were ample outdoor spaces for relaxing. Many evenings were spent enjoying BBQs on the patio looking over the sea.

Both the owner and the maid were very welcoming, hospitable and attentive. The owner was there to meet us on the first night (even though we did not arrive until after midnight) and allowed us to stay a little longer than our check out time on the final day as again our flight was not until the evening. Nothing was too much and the house was kept very clean and tidy. They went above and beyond to ensure that we had an amazing stay and were on hand to recommend restaurants to try in the evenings.

A car is definitely a must for this holiday if you would like to see the beautiful coastline and visit supermarkets/beaches. We found the small beach right in front of the villa (Loutraki) to be one of the nicest in the region so we didn't stray far from there most days. Would recommend taking a trip to Chania town. A nice drive (until you reach Chania itself) and not too far in the car. Lots of nice restaurants (Ela was our choice) and a lovely harbour area to stroll around during the afternoon.

The villa allowed us a chance to recouperate in a relaxing and tranquil setting and the service provided by the owner and his staff was second-to-none. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again as couldn't fault our stay.

We had a 10 night stay with a group of friends at the villa in July 2013. The standard of the facilities was even better than presented on the web pages. A true luxury villa with all you need, and always clean. We also enjoyed a private chef one of the nights.

We can recommend a stay at Olea Villas, and would be happy to come back.

“The greatest”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Villa Olea July- summer 2013. It was a perfect vacation!!

The house is really nice!! It's always clean, has a great view, has all you need for cooking etc. the pool is perfect with the greatest view, there are very confy beds and high class bathrooms in all bedrooms.

The owner is extreemly service minded and is always there when you need him.

I've been in Crete approx. ten times before but have never seen a house like this! It's like the pictures - just better!

You'll need a car to get around (other beaches, supermarkets, resturants etc.). But we didn't mind this. If fact we didn't go out for dinner once, the villa was so great in the afternoon/night.

Dear Berit,

“...been in Crete approx. ten times before but have never seen a house like this…”

Such a comment means so much to us, since you are a frequent visitor to Crete. Olea villas were designed by a very famous Greek architect and that is something we are very proud of.

We are very pleased that you had a great time and looking forward to welcoming you back soon.
