Olive Store Cottage was originally built as a 'kalivi', a farm building for storing produce, sheltering animals and for the owners to live when working the land.

In 2005 it was carefully and lovingly restored as a simple but beautiful holiday cottage. It has two large double bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. A cosy living and dining room with log burning stove. There is a well equipped kitchen and family bathroom with shower on the ground floor. The upstairs bedroom has an ensuite toilet and washbasin. Outside a covered terrace to enjoy shady summer living and cool evenings.

The owners house is about 70 meters away, and they are on hand to help you enjoy your holiday. Altogether the property is set within 3 acres of gardens, olive grove, orchard and woodland. We overlook the Aegean Sea and in the distance the island o...

How to get there
Driving from Athens and Thessaloniki to Volos is very simple on the national road that links the two main cites of Greece. From Volos it is an easy drive along local roads with little traffic and the most stunning views to the Olive Store Cottage just before the village of Platanias. We will send simple detailed driving directions to you on request. If you bring your car by ferry from Italy we recommend the route Ancona to Igoumonitsa. From Igoumonitsa the drive is 5 hours crossing the Pindus mountains on the stunning new Egnatia motorway. Driving in mainland Greece is simple and outsdie major city centres you will encounter very little traffic.<BR><BR>Our nearest mainland airport is Volos but flights there are more limited. We are happy to advise you with the best travelling s... more
