“Fantastic property”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a fantastic property - very contemporary with everything you could wish for. We loved having the coffee machine which was refilled every day and our son appreciated the X box for the times when he wasn't in the lovely pool. George the owner is very helpful, and friendly and went above and beyond, delivering 2 home made cakes and even organising a birthday cake for our daughter on an evening out. The local area is quiet but there is a small pleasant beach nearby and another one with 4 or five restaurants within a 10 minute drive of the villa. The town of Chania is not far away for a more varied selection of restaurants and shopping. All in all the villa was in a great quiet position and was very relaxing, a real home from home.

Dear Mandy,

We would like to thank you for taking your time and writing a review.

We highly appreciate your positive comments about the villa and the location. Both Loutraki and Marathi sandy beaches are among the most beautiful in Chania with shallow, crystal clear water and sheltered from the winds.

We are also delighted to hear that you enjoyed our home made cakes as well as the birthday cake for your daughter.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you back.

Warm regards,
Olea Villas Team

“Superb villa and wonderful people, we will be back for sure!”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We fell in love of this fantastic villa the first time we laid eyes on its pictures and made it a goal to rent it for our vacantion this year. When we got there we realised it is far better than in the pictures :) The location is superb, the people are extremely nice, the food available in the near by restaurants is great.
There is much more in Crete that we have to see so we will be back for sure.
If you want a relaxing and paceful location to enjoy Crete wonders go for this one, you will not regret it, we assure you!

Dear Alina,

"...When we got there we realised it is far better than in the pictures..."

Thank you for taking the time to write for us and for such nice comments. We are very pleased that you had a wonderful experience and that you enloyed the villa and the location.

It is true that there are so many places to visit and things to do in Crete, that only one visit is never enough. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future.

Kind regards,

“A great property”
Reviewed 11 December 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is an exceptional property. George (the owner) made us feel very welcome and gave us great advice on restaurants. The specs of this property are to a very high level and well thought out. The week we stayed went very fast and I would definitely recommend the property for either friends or family.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The villa is wonderful,perfect to reach the nearby beautiful beaches, perfect to have breakfast or dinner with an amazing and relaxing view of the sea or the olive groves , or to simply enjoy the private pool and sunbeds in the manicured garden. Greatly equipped and very clean. The owner is so kind and helpful, always making sure everything is OK.

“Wonderful Vacation Villa !”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Just spent a week on the beautiful island of Crete in the luxurious Villa Olea. It is a superbly equipped modern villa with a stunning architectural design. It made for a perfect base for a family vacation with three double bedrooms all with luxurious en-suite facilities and great views. The local beaches were beautiful, quiet and secluded and Chania was only a short drive away for fantastic restaurants. All this with the glorious Autumn sunshine and the very welcoming and helpful owners made for a truly memorable vacation.

Dear Sean,

Thank you for taking time to post your review.
We are really happy that you liked the villa and the location.

Autumn in Crete is like a small spring, warm 20-30 degrees and a lovely season to visit Crete. It can make an ideal base for relaxing holidays and we are glad that you had a great time.

We certainly look forward to welcoming you back to Olea.

“Fantastic relaxing stay at this luxuray villa”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My wife and I treated our two children with their spouses and our two grand children to an unforgettably relaxing and luxurious holiday at Villa Olea.
Every detail of the Villa was top of the line, from the barbecue to the linen. Every room had it's own bath, a/c, fan and sat TV. We do not go on holiday to watch TV but it was a pleasant bonus to lie in bed and watch a little news & sports if we wanted.
The pool and Jacuzzi were kept immaculate by the daily pool cleaning service and we were spoiled with the daily maid service, which was excellent. The restaurant right in front of the Villa had fantastic friendly owners and made great food. The walk to the beach, which seemed like a private beach, took 4 minutes and never had anything like a crowd or noisy tourists. Always very relaxing and another great little cafe where we had salads and coffee brought to our beach chairs. The beach was perfect for small children and for grownup snorklers. For an adventure you can drive 5 minutes to the next beach and have a choice of 4 restaurants. But one of our favorite things was to prepare dinner in the well equipped kitchen and sit in the beautifully landscaped garden and eat our dinner outside with the lights in the olive trees. It was what a holiday is supposed to be, everything just as you could have hoped for, and more.
A true highlight was how accommodating the owners are. We even received a home made cake from them which was out of this world, and a beautiful hand painted dish which is now in our living room reminding us of the remarkable week at this villa. I can not say enough good about the whole experience.

Dear John,

Thank you so much for your glowing and detailed review. We really appreciate that you have taken the time to write your thoughts. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the villa and the location as well. You are right that Loutraki beach seems like a private beach during mid/low season months. Marathi beach which is only 1.4km from Olea is more busy, so you get the best of both worlds depending on your preferences.

The outdoor garden was designed to provide a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere and based on your comments it looks like we have achieved it. So much thought, care and preparation goes into our guests stay and it is wonderful to be appreciated by our visitors.

We look forward to seeing you and your family again soon.

“An AMAZING stay!!”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We can't recommend Olea Villas enough. We just got back from a week stay and had the most wonderful time. If you're wondering if the pictures are too good to be true, we can assure you that's not the case! What you see is what you get! The owners son Alex is very helpful over email, and the owner himself (George) is also beyond helpful (even took my parents to the super market as we did not rent a car). There are lovely local beaches and tavernas, so you do not need to stray far (unless you stay more than a week). The facilities/ amenities are first class. We loved the infinity pool, hot tub and nespresso machine topped up daily. We all had a wonderful time and will surely return one day :)

We are so glad that you had an amazing stay at Olea. We adapt the services we provide to our visitors based on their needs, so it was our pleasure to help you with your shopping. You were our first visitors that did not rent a car and it seems like you didn’t need to after all.
