“Simply Brilliant”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at Olea Villas for 14 days and it was simply brilliant. Even the build up to the trip was easy and nothing was ever a problem for them.

When we arrived the Villa was immaculate, and everything we had asked for like a child's cot was all set up and ready to go (parents travelling long distances will appreciate that).

Rather than write a massive wall of words, I thought it might be better to bullet point the positives that made this a great holiday choice through the eyes of a Dad and someone who had friends staying in Villa 2 next door:
- The location is perfect. There is a nice elevated view, you have a uber friendly and welcoming family taverna below the Villa, a beautiful and safe beach only a min's walk away and you are not in a location over run by tourists. Chania is also only a 15 min drive away which is fantastic.
- The Villa is modern, exceedingly well equipped, beautifully designed and has all the creature comforts of home with a nice piece of green grass out back for the kids to play (they even had a childs play house and slide setup for us).
- The pool and spa are fantastic with stunning views off the edge of the pool.
- The surrounding area has some real gems to visit and provides a great base to visit some of the attractions further a field like Balos (1 hour 30 by car) and Rythimon (1 hour 20 by car)
- If you get the opportunity to get the chef in to cook a meal then you have to do it. The food was outstanding!!!
- Alex and Georgos go out of their way to ensure everything runs smoothly with your stay and if you ever had a question they would be more than happy to answer it for you. They were exceedingly accommodating and thoughtful.
- The cleaner is super friendly, really thorough and will work around your timings.
All in all, this Villa provided everything that we were looking for in a holiday to Crete and went above our expectations. If we could go back tomorrow we would.

This villa is fantastic and has a beautiful design as on the web site!
The view from the terrace is very fantastic!
The garden and the pool are very maintained! …and it’s the same inside the villa!
Everything was perfect during our vacation. We were 2 adults and 3 children…
The owners Georgios & Alexis are very allowing and friendly, every time ready to help you for any request.
We also would definitely recommend getting the chef and his wife to come to the villa to cook some evening meals - the food was amazing.
We had an excellent stay in the “Olea Villas”, thanks to owners who were really nice, very hospitable, and had a very good spirit customer centric.
And thank you so much Alex for your welcome and your proactive service especially for the birthday of Sophie and for the organization of our day on a private boat!
We are very pleased to have met you! See you soon and enjoy your life…!

Had the most wonderful stay at Olea Villas. Beautiful architecture, luxury facilities (they've thought of everything), extreme comfort, glorious views, perfect location. Our friends took the house next door which was extremely handy but they are built for privacy so would not have been a problem if it was another family. Highlights of the property were morning swim in the infinity pool looking out over the sea, brilliant strong and hot shower room, evening meals cooked on the big BBQ and shared over a huge outdoor dining table on the patio, hot tub under the stars - I saw my first shooting star on the first night!
Although you there is plenty to visit (Chania, Balos beach, Limnoupolis waterpark) the local beach is 5mins walk from the villas and is idyllic. Remote and quiet, the water was crystal clear and irresistible. If you weren't one for exploring, you could happily spend the entire holiday between the villas and local beach. A small taverna at the foot of the hill provides great hospitality and huge delicious portions (alongside a generous offering of raki!) and there are a few more lovely places just over the headland in Marathi - this is not a party town (thankfully!) but there are several options if you want to eat out a few nights.
Georgeos was a helpful and discreet host and the lovely housekeeper Nectaria was a star. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough and cannot wait to return.

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We absolutely loved this place. The building itself, the layout and facilities as well as its wonderful, near perfect, location. Add to that, building owners who took a huge personal interest in the welfare of their guests. They met us at the airport, provided information of the area to such an extent that they did not only tell us where the best super market was but drove us there to make sure that we could find it. They also gave us the most wonderful treats of homemade foods. Somehow they managed to do all this whilst in no way being intrusive on our holiday. Great people indeed.
The house has a lovely pool and bubble pool. The neighbouring house wasn't a bother either so please don't worry about that.
We spent a lot of time in the pool most days but also loved the close proximity to the beach - about a 3 minute walk down the hill. There is a really loud young people's place next to the beach but they seemed to only be open on weekends so on these days we went to the other nearby beach which is about 5 minutes away by car. This is a place where they have some great tavernas which are also open in the evening. Absolutely beautiful.
Apart from spending time at the wonderful villa we also went to Seitan's beach which was a tad scary but oh so worth it, off roading in the hills more inland as well as being shown round Chania by our private chef (booked by the owner as well and only hired for the evening sadly) who did not only take us shopping in the market for the evenings fare but also showed us around. The weeks stay was finished off with the most memorable meal at Pallas restaurant - on the rooftop next to the harbour - oh my it was good!
To conclude - this is a really good place to stay. We could not recommend it more and hope to return next year (and the year after that and....).

“Perfect”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

One word describes it: Perfect!
Architectural gem, high quality ammenities, location - 3 minutes to the beach, and above all the owners who will welcome you not as another customer but as a dear cousin! In this villa two weeks will pass like couple of days elsewhere, so my suggestion is to take it for at least two weeks. We will come back, definitelly! Thanks again, for all details well thought of, I tried to find something that can be improved, but I failed. See you again, for sure!!!
