As peaceful as it possibly gets - amidst the nature of the Olea hill, but with all the comforts. This is the home of the calmness seekers, the freedom embracers, the savorers of simple moments. Everything is about reconnecting: with our loved ones, with nature and with ourselves. During low season, the house floors are also rented separately.

Kissa sleeps 2-4 people and is ideal for couples, single travellers or friends.

The space
( Video: youtu(dot)be/9yQWbO4FevM ) [Copy link to address bar, replacing (dot) with a dot]

Our elegant vacation house watches over our 25 acres olive tree estate and the sea, 4.7 km from Gythio town and the closest beach. A getaway for relaxation with friends and an exploration hub throughout the whole year. Everything is about reconnecting: with our loved ones, with nature and with ourselves.

Olea has large spaces and plenty of natural light coming in - every room has large window. We have thoughtfully placed ambient lighting to make nights cozy, and retractable mesh screens in every door and window to keep insects out while letting the pleasant summer breeze in.

Cook delicious meals, enjoy food with good company, read, walk in our olive grove, take glorious naps, lay on the grass, pick up mulberries from our garden in May, listen to the bells of the neighbor’s sheep, climb a tree, listen to the birds, take a deep breath, feel free and enjoy. This is Olea.

Falls and winters are mild here, making Olea Escape ideal for low-season longer stays. If you seek a longer break or you are an artist in seek of their next inspiration or somewhere peaceful in order to create, read and write, this is your place.

Guest access
Kissa is our upper floor. The floor is autonomous, with one double bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and a living/ dining room that can sleep 2 additional people in the extendable sofa beds.

Kissa is linked with the ground floor through internal wooden stairs. When rented individually, the floors are kept separate by closing the stairs' trapdoor. Each floor has its own private entrance.

We stand for slow life, stripping the unnecessary, and creating space for meaningful, carefree memories with our loved ones. So park freely, settle in, enjoy the outer spaces around the house, stroll in our olive estate. The forest awaits at the edge of the estate in case you're feeling adventurous.

Other things to note
Excursions:

Gythio is an ideal hub for three alternative trips:

You can either explore the region of Mani (the central “leg” of the Peloponnesian peninsula) and visit Areopoli, a picturesque town, and the impressive Diros Caves.
You can head north to the city of Sparta (45 km) and visit the medieval town of Mystras nearby. Sparta’s mountain, Taygetos, has charming nature during the summer and scattered villages with delicious Greek food for you to discover.

You can also head towards the eastern Peloponnesian “leg” for the pristine Elafonisos island (can be visited by ferry and, in my view, its Simos beach is the most beautiful beach of Greece). On your way back, head towards the unique-of-its-kind medieval island fortress of Monemvasia.

The closest beaches are Selinitsa (5 km from Olea) with its unofficial nudist area at its left end, Valtaki (9 km) with its famous shipwreck and Mavrovouni (7 km), where you can try surfing. Vathy and Skoutari are beautiful sandy beaches.

Location

Gytheio, Greece

Expect some wildlife around, as our estate is near the forest. Foxes, wild boars and rabbits may roam around at night, but they have never bothered us.
Our area is populated by olive farmers. Each has a house on the top of a hill and the olive grove around it, like ourselves. So, please, no external fires.

Godiva Plays is my Athenian flat, an unique urban stay in an aerialist's home. And Olea Escape has been my vacation home of every summer, Christmas and Easter holiday of mine ever since I remember. I've put all my care in opening up both experiences to you - a chic urban experience for anyone connecting to their playful and sporty side, and an escape experience for the seekers of nature and remoteness. Welcome.

Neighbors' cats and dogs may also roam around the house, but they are friendly. We suggest you don't feed them, but you can offer them some water.
