“Amazing Villa, Amazing Hospitality”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have recently returned from a superb weeks stay at this stunning contemporary villa - the architecture, the views, the garden were all superb. We were a group of 4 adults, a toddler and 2 babies and the villa had everything we needed and it was the little things like complementary daily coffee and maid service that made our stay a pleasure.

The friendly owners were very helpful and definitely went the extra mile for us, taking us to the supermarket and organising the printing of our boarding passes as we did not rent a car.

Alex was absolutely brilliant during the booking process as I had a lot of questions about its suitability travelling with 2 babies which he was more than happy to answer. Travel cots, a high chair and bathing chairs were all provided for the babies.

Lovely Loutraki beach was a 2 minute walk down the hill from the Villa and Marathai beach with excellent seafood restaurant 20 minutes walk away.

I would definitely recommend getting the chef to come to the villa to cook some evening meals - the food was amazing. We also enjoyed eating al fresco lunches and using the excellent BBQ.

Amazing Villa, Amazing hospitality!

Thank you Georgios & Alexis for a wonderful week in your villa !

“Superb”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We are just back from a superb stay at Olea Villas. The villa design, pools, location, view and ammenities are excellent. We visited with family that included two small babies and a toddler. It was relaxing and peaceful. What really made the stay even more special was the personal service from the owners. They could not do enough for us and were always on hand with anything we needed. I would recommend you to stay!

“Wonderful vacation in stunning villa”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We spent 2 weeks at the villa - we being 2 adults and 4 teenagers.

It was a wonderful vacation - not only the villa was stunning but also the hospitality of Georgios & Alexis.
Special thanks to Nektaria who did a wonderful job.

We definetely recommend a vacation here!
The house and the hospitality plus the short distance to Marathi Beach and to Chania sum up to a very, very relaxing holiday experience - all of us would have loved to extend our stay.

@ Georgios & Alexis
Thank you for everything

Dear Axel,

"...not only the villa was stunning but also the hospitality..."

We try our best to provide great service to our visitors, so thank you so much for your kind words.

Indeed, Loutraki as well as Marathi beaches, are within walking distance from the villa. We are so happy to hear that you did enjoy that, along with your visit to Chania downtown.

We will be sure to share all your wonderful comments with Nektaria and we do hope that we will welcome you again in the future.

All the best,

“Fantastic property”
Reviewed December 14, 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 December 12, 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!

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,

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.

Reviewed December 3, 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.
