Set in prime position within a small development of just 8 properties, Villa Olivia is a perfect place to enjoy Western Crete and only 30 minutes drive from the beautiful town of Chania. Overlooking the lovely Souda bay, you will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding hills and olive groves. Lounging by the private pool, relaxing on the terrace or enjoying the gardens you can take in the superb views of the White Mountains as well as the sea. Situated between Kalyves and Vamos, you will be able to explore the nearby Blue Flag child friendly beaches (10 - 15 minutes drive) at Kalyves and Almyrida, mountains, villages and the delights of Chania. Eat and drink at the friendly beach side bars and restaurants in the small harbour villages of Almyrida and Kalyves. Explore picturesque walking and cycling trails both locally and in the White Mountains. Car hire is recommended in order to make the most of this wonderful region.
Villa Olivia is set in the most tranquil of surroundings. The soft mountain breezes, the sounds of the birds, the occasional sound of the bells on the sheep that wander the hillside all lead to a relaxed ambience. Spectacular views from the terraces are to be enjoyed all day. Welcoming beaches, restaurants and tavernas just a short car journey away all add to the whole experience. Only 35 minutes in the car takes you to the beautiful Venetian town of Chania. Time spent exploring the old town and harbour is thoroughly recommended.

Outstanding views and large pool, a real Cretan gem of a Villa
By Donna J on 09-Aug-2018
We have had a fantastic time at this Villa. We feel totally relaxed as the location and views were the best we have ever had. You could not take your eyes of the view and spent many times of the day admiring it. Sunset and sunrise were even more special.
The pool is very clean and large. My kids spent ages in it, after all that is one of the reasons we book a Villa to have our own private pool.
The location is great, not too far from the airport and Chania town. Plus local villages nearby for shopping and restaurants.
We had never been to Crete before but we all now understand why people fall in love with this Island. We will return very soon.
Thanks so much to the owners who made us feel comfortable and provided us with useful information. You definitely will not go wrong by visiting this Villa to see for yourselves.

Highly recommend villa Olivia. We will be returning next year. Thank you Joy and Jim for letting us share your wonderful villa.
A Wonderful Villa in a Beautiful Relaxing Location
By Ross H on 17-Sep-2017
We had a wonderful holiday in a delightful villa with amazing views of Souda bay and the mountains. This villa itself is set in large plot with a private gated entrance, lovely gardens, fabulous pool and a large veranda with exceptional views….which all made for a really relaxing and peaceful setting and holiday. There is always a gentle cooling breeze coming up from the valley which is wonderful in the heat of summer while enjoying the amazing pool. It’s only a 10 minute drive to shops, restaurants, beaches and the villages of Kalives and Almyrida.
The villa is modern, very clean, well equipped and the beds are extremely comfortable.
The owners Joy and Jim were a delight to deal with both before and during the holiday, extremely quick and very helpful in any email correspondence.
We had a marvellous time and really adored the villa which made our holiday. None of us wanted to leave and we can’t recommend Villa Olivia enough, the pictures on the website don’t do it justice…… an amazing location. I look forward to our next visit to Villa Olivia.
Villa in peaceful location with great views
By Gloria P on 02-Sep-2017
Villa Olivia is a well maintained property in an extremely peaceful location. Our children loved the large pool and the gardens. This was a perfect base to explore the western part of this beautiful island. There is lots to do and lovely places to eat within easy reach by car. The owners were very helpful and the welcome pack was much appreciated. We loved it so much we've booked for next year!
Fantastic villa in a great location.
By Ian S on 06-Aug-2017
We've just spent a week at Villa Olivia for my 50th birthday. Not only is the villa modern, clean and well kitted out, the pool is fantastic and the villa is in a great location for shops, restaurants and the beach.
If you just want to chill out by the pool or nip down to the beach for a swim and a bite to eat then I can't recommend Villa Olivia highly enough. We did a few day trips out, one in particular over the mountains to the other side of the island where the snorkelling was great and the beach side Taverna was equally as good.
The owners Joy & Jim are a pleasure to deal with and needless to say we'll be returning soon as we've all fallen in love with this enchanting island. 5 stars all round
A little piece of heaven.

We arrived on Crete for a short break in May. 45 minutes drive from the airport and we arrived at Villa Olivia. The villa accommodation was exactly as described on the website. Clean, well maintained and beautifully furnished with plenty of sun loungers outside. It is the most perfect place in the world. Breathtaking views over the bay stunned us to silence while we ate our breakfast on the veranda the first morning.The welcome goodies were a lovely touch - the perfect survival kit! Minutes from the beach and tavernas at Almyrida we were not short on places to eat and drink. Good supermarket in the village too. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone - friends or family. Perfect for children and grown ups too.
