The lower level of the property includes a separate entrance to the kitchen and living room, and a bathroom where the washing machine is located. The living room also provides additional accommodation for 2 guests on the sofa.

Across the entrance from the living room, there is the private entrance to the 3rd bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
On the other side of this building and next to the pool is the private entrance to the 4th bedroom with en-suite bathroom and exquisite sea views.
From the living room / kitchen area and towards the pool, is the wonderful outdoor living area. The outdoor lounge is shaded by 2 beautiful mulberry trees, and the outdoor dining table and BBQ with sink and fridge offer magnificent views as do the sun beds along the pool and the stone built day-bed.
The garden beds are planted with lovely local plants and flowers and a large selection of herbs for your enjoyment.
The property is fully enclosed with a fence, and private. Parking is plentiful along the road, right outside the main gated entrance. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful with olive groves and a few houses as immediate neighbors.

Absolutely stunning villa! We loved everything about it. The attention to detail is amazing and owners were so helpful and kind, bringing us home made pies and providing us with loads of reccomendations. The location is idyllic and sunsets were insane. Villa is really well equipped and has a great bbq area.

Unser Aufenthalt in der Villa war mehr als grandios. Wir konnten uns wunderbar erholen und abschalten. Auch wenn die Villa gleich an einer Durchfahrtsstraße gelegen ist, bekommt man nicht viel davon mit (zumindest in der Nebensaison). Der Ausblick ist ein Traum. Alles ist Top gepflegt, sauber und der Pool wird auch jeden Tag gereinigt. Super Gastgeber. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.
Teresa, September 2021
Very beautiful house to enjoy with friends or family. Very calm place to have dreamy dinners, barbecue night or pool days. The hosts are also very friendly and try everything to make you feel welcome.
Jasper, September 2021
Wundervolle Villa mit unglaublichem Blick. Man hat alles was das Herz begehrt, das Haus ist wirklich super ausgestattet. Für 10 Personen wäre es vielleicht etwas zu klein, aber 7 Leute hatten mehr als genug Platz. Der Pool und Hofbereich suchen ihresgleichen und laden zu einem gemütlichen Verweilen am Haus ein. Der Strand, viele gute Restaurants und zahlreiche Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in 5 Fahrminuten zu erreichen. Nikos und seine Familie sind sehr freundliche Gastgeber, die jederzeit erreichbar sind und einem bei der Organisation von Ausflügen, Taxis, etc. stets zur Seite stehen. Meine Familie und ich waren auf jeden Fall sehr begeistert und freuen uns auf den nächsten Aufenthalt.

Stunning villa, amazing hosts! This villa is the most stunning villa any of us had stayed at, the hosts really made it an exceptional stay. THANK YOU Alexandra, Nikos and Konstantina, you were incredible before and throughout our stay. A huge shout out to Alexandra for dealing with our many requests, nothing was ever too much trouble and you were so very helpful. Nikos & Konstantina, your villa is stunning, the views, the little touches, made this one of the most beautiful visits, and you are so friendly too! You were so welcoming, we had the best week ever in such beautiful surroundings. Several elements made this trip exceptional, the supermarket deliveries straight to the villa, the boat trip and the chef that came and cooked for us, we really could not have asked for more! We loved every minute, thank you from us all! We can't wait to come back!

A wonderful house in a wild and remote region of Crete. The view is absolutely superb and everything is there so that you can be autonomous. Hosts are delightful and always ready to help. They really embody the particularly impressive hospitality of the people from Crete. Imbros gorges 5 minutes away and dream secret beaches all around. Better be max. 8 people to smoothly fit in

Wow! Villa Olvia is one of those rare places on Airbnb were the reality exceeds the photos! We loved our time at the Villaa. Nikos (& Konstantina) could not have done more for us. From when we first arrived we were given a welcome package with local produce to the almost daily gifts of tarts and Sfakian pies! In addition to all the useful information on local restaurants and beaches - which was especially helpful when trying to find a secluded cove on a windy day. The Villa has been well thought out and allows privacy for everyone with lots of comfortable nooks and crannies to chill out. It is well maintained and the view of the Libyan Sea will just stay with us for ever. If you are looking to explore the southwest part of Crete then I can not recommend highly enough Villa Olvia as your first choice to stay.

Paradies! Wunderbare Villa mit viel Platz, genial konzipiert, sehr sehr gastfreundliche Vermieter, schönster Pool, wirklich ein Traum!
Ori, October 2020
The stay was a superb treat for us from the very first moment. The house is large with great separation between the rooms that maximize privacy aligned with lots of space for gathering and enjoying together. The pool and the view is like taken from a dream. You wake up in the morning and hold your breath while stairing at the endless sea almost connected to the pool, while sitting under the trees. Konstantina, who hosted us was extremely kind, helpful, friendly welcoming, professional and nice to us – what else can one ask ? We certainly could not ask for more and we would highly recommend the stay at this house. It was a real one of a kind vacation for us. Thank you
Ronny, September 2020
Very friendly, lovely and helpful hosts. Communication fast and easy. The house is just great, our stay was as relaxed as we had hoped! Can only recommend! :)
Marius, September 2020
Sehr zu empfehlen! Die Unterkunft hat einen fantastischen Ausblick und lässt keine Wünsche offen. Sie ist perfekt für Gruppen bis 8 Personen geeignet. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Matthias, September 2020
Der Urlaub in der Vila Olvia war rund um perfekt. Nikos und seine Familie haben sich sehr gut um uns gekümmert und standen uns immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Sehr nette und wirklich höfliche Gastgeber. Der Ausblick war überragend und wir konnten total entspannen. Wir werden wiederkommen :-)

We had an incredible week at Villa Olvia. Nikos and his family were so hospitable, even collecting dinner and groceries for us on the evening we arrived. The villa was exceptionally well-equipped, making cooking for a big group easy! The location of the villa is so beautiful, the surrounding areas are full of gorgeous beaches with clear blue waters. Nikos was on hand to provide recommendations whenever we asked for them and even provided extra touches such as fresh pool towels. A really great stay, we hope to be back soon.
Nicholas, August 2020
We had an incredible time staying at Villa Olvia. Ten of us (two sleeping on the very comfortable and spacious lounge couches) stayed for six nights enjoying the beautiful pool, amazing view and incredible hospitality of Constantina and Nikos who were in contact whenever we needed them to recommend sights or food, help us book boats, or provide a helpful contact. The location looks remote on the map, but we were so pleased we stayed in the south which is much less crowded and absolutely beautiful. The house is a few minutes drive from a very well supplied small supermarket, a lovely relaxed beach at Frangocastello, the beautiful Chora Sfakion, multiple ferries to other more remote beaches, private boat hire places and walks through the Imbros Gorge. We were super impressed with all the thought that went into the design of the house and it had by far the best kitchen set up I've had in an air BnB. The pool is spectacular and the outdoor space is just as beautiful as it looks on the photos. All in all, a perfect stay and we couldn't fault a thing.
Christos, August 2020
Vila Olvia is fantastic. Beautiful aesthetics combined with very well designed architecture. It allows for two 4-membered families to share the same house but also be independent in their sleeping arrangements as there are basically 2 properties combined in one. Nice natural shadow from trees that are planted inside the property. Alexandra was very accommodating and together with the owners were very hospitable and attentive to any of our needs. One thing that groups with small children should take care is that the infinity side of the infinity pool goes down a 5 meter drop on the other side and children need to be careful and not walk on this side. We did not have any issues but we could let our children unsupervised in the pool. The outside area with the pool is really excellent. It has sunbeds, larger dinning table, barbeque and sitting area. It was a pitty that during our stay the weather with the very strong winds, did not allow us to sit and enjoy the outside area as much as we wanted. All in all a beautiful property with very hospitable host and owners that gave us precious holiday moments together with our friends and family.

Having read the raving reviews about Nikos’ villa, we were already anticipating a fantastic holiday for our group, however the host, the villa, and the whole trip to Crete itself exceeded our wildest expectations. Sfakia is a fantastic, calm region full of local traditions and delicious food. The villa itself lends itself wonderfully to larger groups,; we found the open concept of every room being accessed independently from the outside to be great, as it encouraged all of us to spend time outside in the 'patio' which connects all the rooms together. Nikos and his family were extremely helpful in helping us find restaurants and activities in Crete, as well as bringing us several local specialities such as wine, a local spirit called 'Raki', cakes, tea, and much more. We could not appreciate them more, and thank them a lot, as their hospitality and care played a great factor in making our trip so enjoyable. If you are looking for a peaceful, yet curious place to enjoy while visiting Greece, look no further, as Villa Olvia is definitely the place to be.
Didier, July 2020
Great house, very stylish and well designed. Perfect pool, air conditioning everywhere, very well equipped kitchen, great assistance by Nikos - really relaxing family vacation.
Shelley, September 2019
Outstanding, peaceful , and beautiful home. Views are stunning, pool amazing and our host Nikos and his family were exceptional. Thank you so much for all our treats, local products and advice, especially tavern recommendations and help sourcing fresh fish ! We really enjoyed our week and would definitely return Thank you
Allison, August 2019
Amazing place, brand new with hosts that go above and beyond with local suggestions and a personal touch! Our entire family loved it! Tons of space as we were only 5!
Anna, July 2019
This was the best house ever! Our holiday was completely perfect thanks to the stunning apartment and Nikos our incredible host who was so kind and gave us lots of tips and help with our activities around the island. He also bought us some wonderful local produce and helped us with any problems. The villa was truly a 5 star experience, perfect cool and clean bedrooms with the most comfortable beds in the world! A big highlight was the white robes provided to wear when round the pool! The pool itself was sensational with stunning views especially at sunset. There was lovely beaches nearby and our boat trip that Nikos recommended led us to some absolute paradise spots. The local food was so delicious and the people so friendly. I really couldn’t fault this place, it truly provided the setting for the best holiday ever.
דנה, July 2019
Above our expectations! The villa was sparkling clean. There are 3 private rooms in the villa. We where 3 couples and each had a private bathroom, Well equipped kitchen, and an amazing pool with amazing view. The location is great. The owners of the place was super nice! We will come back again!
Billie, June 2019
Villa Olvia was the most beautiful villa that we could possibly have imagined. It is in a gorgeous, quiet part of South Crete but has everything you could need in the villa or at nearby shops. The Villa was more beautiful than even the gorgeous local beaches. The hosts were fantastic, kept the place immaculate, had everything you could possibly need. We received gifts of local olive oil, raki and home made goodies from the family. We will definitely be going back! Thank you to Villa Olvia for looking after us so well!
Kristin, July 2018
Villa Olvia is fabulous. The view and the pool made us feel like we had our own little peaceful spot in Crete, with an unobstructed view of the sea. The house is located in a quieter region so you get a feel for life away from tourists. Everything is modern, stylish, clean and very well equipped. There is a lovely balance of indoor and outdoor space. Konstantina and Nikos were amazing hosts, very attentive and helpful with local recommendations. Highly recommend this property.
Emmanuelle, August 2018
Thank you for your hospitality. We enjoyed your nice villa, the beautiful view and the great pool. The villa is very nicely renovated.
Dominique, July 2019
Ils méritent la notre de "Superhost"!! Nous avons adoré vivre des aventures avec une saveur davantage "locale" que "touristique". La maison est d'un entretien sans reproche et est réconfortante. On y dort bien les lits et oreillers sont de très bonne qualité. Je recommande en tout point!!! Merci encore Niko
