Stayed for two blissful weeks in October 2013. The Olive Grove was a perfect place to relax and enjoy either lazing by the pool or having a wander around Elounda. The apartments were spotless and well looked after. The food was great, particularly on BBQ night, and Julia, Dimitris & family did all they could to make our holiday enjoyable, along with Chris who was always cheerful and kept our apartment spotless. Our apartment was down beside the kitchen and bar area and we felt was well situated - not far to wander for one of Manos' dakos or an alcoholic milkshake from Andreas (or a few card tricks from Andreas to baffle the teenagers!). The family's dogs, Mollie & Rocco, are great, well behaved and very entertaining - which is saying something coming from someone with a lifelong fear of dogs! The apartments are located very close to the town centre, with a variety good places to eat within easy walking distance. The only traffic noise we heard was from what can only be described as local roads in the town, certainly nothing that disrupted our holiday in any way - I can only assume that anyone who did think the Olive Grove was noisy should perhaps think of booking their next holiday somewhere out in the country with nothing around to try to eliminate 'town noise'.
Just to be clear - we did not know Julia or any of her family before travelling to The Olive Grove. Would I now be happy to be known as 'friendly with the owners'? Most definitely! A friendlier and more genuine family would be hard to find and I wouldnt hesitate in recommending the Olive Grove to others and would definitely love to return there myself sometime in the future.
