“Without doubt, the most incredible holiday house”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Olea Prime for a week in July as a family of nine, seven adults and two children aged 18 months and 3 months. Initially cautious about where to stay with two young children we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing week and more luxurious place to stay. The house was perfectly set up for young ones and older ones alike. The two spacious bedrooms on the ground floor made a perfect space for kids to sleep during the day, with plenty of space for associated baby paraphernalia. Three generous bedrooms make the middle floor, along with the fun gangway out to the pool area, while a generous and very well equipped upper level is a kitchen and living room. All rooms have air-conditioning and electric blinds so it's very easy to keep cool. There's a lovely grass area under the rear gangway, and a little playground with table tennis for the smaller ones. If you are bringing small children there is also an amazing shallow section of the pool that is sectioned off making it a great place for them to play while adults can enjoy the pool too.

We were met by George, the owner, upon arrival, who showed us round and made us feel at home. During the week he was incredibly discreet if we needed anything, even dropping round fresh eggs and a delicious hot desert one morning, absolute heaven! George's son Alex was also incredibly helpful and was on call to answer any requests, plus he sent a Google map with recommended places to visit and eat. Suffice to say the house was so wonderful we barely made it to any of the recommendations (except to the local restaurant in Marathi on multiple occasions for lunch)

The house was kept immaculate by a wonderful lady who came every morning to clean. She was so friendly, also bringing fresh eggs one day, and was very discreet.

We made use of the chef service and also the masseuse. Both highly recommended. To have the freshest Greek treats cooked for you without having to leave the house was utter luxury, and also fantastic value for money. Highly, highly recommended.

Finally, and saving the best to last, that view has to be one of the best in the Mediterranean. Sipping sundowners on the deck was a highlight every evening. We could not recommend this house more highly.

“Truly idyllic paradise.”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Olea Prime has to be one of the finest places my wife and I have ever stayed. Outside, the architecture of the building is pleasingly modern, yet sympathetic to the local surroundings, with structured walkways leading up to the house and out through to the well appointed shaded decking area and pool.

Spread across three floors, the villa benefits from air conditioning and numerous en-suite facilities throughout. Of note, too, is the high quality WiFi serving as far as the pool. And for those for whom it matters, each room is complete with superb TV and satellite facilities. The kitchen boasts two sinks, a full oven and a large fridge-freezer.

The most impressive thing about this stunning villa, though, is the view it offers from almost anywhere you care to look. Sat above the nearby quiet cove of Loutraki, the clear blue of the sea and the surrounding coastline are enough to make anyone lie back and allow stress to drift away.

The owners of the villa are wonderful company for whom nothing is too much trouble.

This is a serious slice of paradise and an experience not to be missed.

“Feel like a king for the week”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This villa is the perfect combination of classic greek elegance and modern design. The house is so nice that you will have people taking pictures of you from their boats that gather in the blue water bay below your deck.

Alex and his wife were incredibly hospitable and even made me some traditional pastries to fill up the fridge. They also dropped by to see if i needed anything and were great with suggestions on boat trips, taxies and places to eat.

I held an event for 80 people in the beautiful olive garden in the back yard and it was a day to remember. The setting was perfect for up to 150 people and every guest was blown away by the stunning villa and unforgettable sunrise.

Thank you ...I'll be back.

best,
George

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in Olea prime for a week and it was a truly enjoyable experience. We
had a great time and enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated villa. Gorgeous and
luxurious, it made our family vacation extra-special.
The villa is nice and extremely comfortable, with swimming pool, and large rooms like a
suite.
The view of the sea is phenomenal. The villa, with many windows, was very bright, absolutely stunning and luxurious, very clean and tidy and spacious too.
We all fell in love with it the minute we stepped through the door.
Giorgos met us promptly at the villa on our arrival from the airport, and did a thorough review of its features; he was also quickly available for advice throughout our stay.
He and Alex his son are extremely communicative and followed up promptly to every inquiry.
They went out of their way to accommodate us and to make us feel comfortable.
Alex arranged for us the car rentals and a chef that came one evening and cooked for us a
delicious dinner, and gave us recommendations for great taverns in the area and in Chania.
One morning Giorgos came with a fresh sweet pie that his wife made especially for us.
Inside the villa we had all the conveniences we need: great kitchen, tv/wifi, comfortable
sleeping, big bathrooms and closets.
We liked to spend the mornings and the evenings on the balcony with the view, and it was
simply magnificent and just like paradise.
We would defiantly choose to go back here.!

“Beautiful home, lovely hosts - a perfect vacation spot!”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

The house combines privacy and convenience in a perfect way. Just a short walk from a beautiful small beach where you find all that you may need, yet enough out of the way and secluded, giving one a feeling of peace and quiet you need when on vacation.
As is obvious from the photos, it is a beautiful 3 story home, with all the amenities you need, as well some of the most spectacular views of the sea that one can imagine.
The owners were very accommodating in every possible way, helping with car rentals, shopping advice, restaurant suggestions, a private chef and everything and anything one may need.
There is an organic farmer close by, selling delicious, just picked produce on the side of the road, a bakery and a couple of great mini markets in the village above, as well as a great fish market only 10 minutes away. Getting around the little peninsula is easy, as there is not a lot of traffic, and running errands was a breeze.
Wish we could have stayed longer and we will most certainly return.

“Unparalleled luxury accommodation”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved the peace and tranquility of this villa. It was truly beautiful, with probably the best views we have ever had in a villa, having stayed in many luxury villas over the world. Alex and his wife were extremely hospitable, waiting up to welcome us when our plane was late, giving us instant feedback whenever we requested local information, and arranging for maid service to be discreet to fit in with our holiday plans. Would have no hesitation in coming back and highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants a 'get-away-from-it-all" experience with all mod cons. Only hope it is not booked up permanently when we want to come back!
