The Olive Villas complex (comprising villa Zerbera, villa Voucamvilia and maisonette Kamelia) is situated in a quiet location offering comfortable accommodation among fantastic nature, ideal for hiking and excursions in the region as well as experiencing the traditional Cretan way of life. It includes spacious bedrooms and living rooms, fireplaces, verandas with marvellous views and barbeque and fully equipped kitchen. Located in the village of Krya Vrysi, Olive Villas is a traditional stone-built family house that stands on the site of an old olive press which belonged to the owners’ family since the beginning of the 20th century. The more modern olive mill still stands next to the house and the Olive Villas Estate still produces excellent quality extra virgin olive oil (a sample will be provided to all guests).
Crete. As well as the magnificent beaches and warm seas, the size and physical variety of the island of Crete invites exploration, and Olive Villas, located at Kria Vryssi, Drapanias, 73100, Greece, is the ideal staring point. Uniquely among Greek islands, Cretes mountainous spine creates a sense of spaciousness, a life distinct from sea and sand. Fly-drive holidays to Crete – or simply the hire of a car for some days during your stay in Olive Villas, will enable you to seek out the rugged formations of the interior, the fertile countryside and tiny chapels filled with frescoes, the mountain villages where time has stood still. Always, the authentic spirit of the islanders, their fierce independence and pride as well as the best cooking and most delicious meals that constitute the famed Cretan Diet will more likely be found where few others are looking. With so much to see, with dolphins to watch, shaded squares to paint, olive trees and wild orchids, Minoan remains and sweeping beaches, no wonder Crete holidays and Olive Villas are revisited so often.
