Turning off the road towards distant Sfakia, on the south coast, above the pretty village of Vrisses you enter a landscape of rolling hills, rich with olive and cypress trees and then, turning again, you find yourself in the very heart of this tranquil and green landscape. Not imposing itself on this beautiful pastoral scene, Villa Olivia's exterior is totally unassuming. There is nothing ostentatous about the square stone exterior sitting on it's green lawns but drop down off the road, step inside and the Villas delights are revealed, for the stone block walls conceal a beautifully laid out two bedroom Villa where modern style doesn't compromise on comfort and practicality blends easily with indulgence.

Not imposing itself on this beautiful pastoral scene, Villa Olivia's exterior is totally unassuming. There is nothing ostentatous about the square stone exterior sitting on it's green lawns but drop down off the road, step inside and the Villas delights are revealed, for the stone block walls conceal a beautifully laid out two bedroom Villa where modern style doesn't compromise on comfort and practicality blends easily with indulgence. The open plan and spacious L shaped living area seamlessly divides itself into three distinct areas. The first, a comfortable sitting area with squashy sofas arranged by a generous glass fronted fireplace, either side of which, French doors open onto the tiled terrace which borders the Villa. Across the room, a second sitting area is grouped around a plasma TV and a coffee table. Moving into the narrower part of the 'L' the dining table and chairs are almost part of the galley style kitchen which is a clean sweep of units along opposite walls equipped with all modern gadgets – dishwasher, fridge freezer, full cooker with 4 ring ceramic hob etc. Windows from the kitchen look onto the covered outside dining area and towards the barbecue area in the corner of the courtyard, with bread oven and generous BBQ. There's a door near the kitchen for the necessary to-ing and fro-ing when eating outside. A small hallway leads from the living area to the two beautiful bedrooms both with French doors opening to the swimming pool terrace and with enchanting views towards the rolling hills. The charming double bedroom has a smart ensuite shower room and there's a second, independent and totally indulgent, shower room with walk in shower and rainforest shower head. Sunbathing terraces surround the lovely 8m x 4m swimming pool where the hills, blanketed in olive trees and cypress seem to roll on and on. Villa Olivia delivers total relaxed holiday living on every level and is the perfect place to return to whether you have been to the beach at Georgoupolis (10 mins drive), Chania's or Rethymnon's Venetian harbours (25 mins drive) or visited Chora Sfakia on the south coast (45 mins drive) to take a ferry trip to Loutro or Ag Roumelli. There is a tiny taverna serving traditional fare in nearby Maza, about 1.5km away or drop into Vrisses at only 3kms and eat at one of the tavernas with tables under the plane trees by the river. N.B. the pool has Roman steps at the shallow end which measures 0.90m whilst the deepest part of the pool is 1.50m. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: EOT Protocol No. 485/16022015More

About the neighbourhood
Although Georgioupolis with its lovely sandy beaches is now a thriving seaside resort it still retains a pleasing rural ambience and leisurely pace of life. Numerous tavernas and cafes surround the bustling village square whilst in little side streets you will find a number of small shops selling jewellery and local pottery. Down by the river the fishermen with their boats and nets add a tangy whiff of the sea to the village atmosphere and here it is possible to hire a boat and paddle upstream towards Lake Kournas spotting turtles and fish as they drift by.
Getting around
Taking the old road out of Georgioupolis it is just 6 kms to the village of Vrisses, a main stopping point for buses to the south coast harbour town of Chora Sfakion, where ferries ply between Loutro, and far flung Paleohora as well as Agia Roumeli at the foot of the Samaria gorge.
