We stayed at the Olive tree over the recent half term holiday in the largest apartment upstairs with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was a great place to stay, quiet set in farmland surrounded by Olive Trees and the wild sagnamita fields which were being used to grow the salad/winter greens. The apartment itself like all of them was... More

It is just a matter of competence, the hospitable smile of the owner welcoming you at the reception with a glass of delicious orange juice, the very good swimming-pool asking you to take a dip and the tantalizing sound of the cicadas outside. Gradually you realize that the best of Crete is at a stone´s throw: Balos Beach (1 hour... More

The apartments are situated at the edge of a small village on the gramvousa peninsula. It was ideal for visiting the Blue Lagoon. The apartment was comfortable - on two levels with three balconies giving a choice of sun or shade. There was a lovely pool but unfortunately it was a little chilly when we were there.

Olive Tree Apartments is situated in Kaliviani, a small and characteristic village in the very north-west of Crete, the less turistic part yet. It's a perfect place to stay if you want to relax and also if you desire to discover some of the most beautiful beaches of the island!!! For this, of course, you have to have a car....... More
