Description

This traditional style stone villa is located on the western side of the north peninsula in the quietest and most secluded setting imaginable: it has unmatched views and unrivalled tranquillity. Set in its own grounds amid the old almond, fig and cypress trees, not forgetting the 700 year old olive tree, the villa is built in the Venetian fashion from local stone and has a large terrace and pool, with many scented flowers in the garden. The large patio with its inviting pool enables you spread out and relax in the sun or shade with a drink or a barbeque to occupy those days when you stay at home.

For the youngest guests there's a playpen and lots of toys and games with a buggy for days out. A second patio allows you to escape for a quiet moment or two on your own with just the scents of flowers and herbs for company; a place to read or dream your days away with views to die for, or you can sit in the shade of the ancient olive tree and wonder what it may have seen in those long,

The Olive Tree is a unique and beautiful place to be and will be remembered by guests for its tranquillity and seclusion for many years to come.

The villa comprises well-equipped, high quality spacious living and dining accommodation with 3 generous, air conditioned bedrooms (2 twins and 1 en-suite double). Five minutes drive and you're in Manganos, where you can shop for daily necessities; ten minutes drive brings you to the busy yachting port of Fiscardo with its shops, tavernas and visiting celebs. The ground floor and the private pool/patio are available for guests; the upper floor is unoccupied during the summer months.

Further details

The Olive Tree is peaceful and safe for children to play with no traffic passing by and no noisy neighbours to spoil the magnificent setting. For the youngest guests there are toys, cot/playpen, high chair and baby buggy.

Further details indoors

Location description from owner

The Ionian Islands region

The north of the island is away from the busy tourist areas and is the only part of the island to retain many of the Ventian buildings once found over the whole island. Long occupation by Turks, Venetians, French and British give this part the island a character of its own. Days can be spent walking, swimming, sailing or driving around as you explore this unique island. It's history stretches from the Stone age and stone tools can be found if you know where to look; snorkelling and diving will reveal shipwrecks from ancient times too and you may also find the remains of aircraft from World War II lost at sea. The climate is perfect with temperatures in the high 20s and no rain to speak of from June - September.

Fiscardo

The Olive Tree is secluded and peaceful but there are two beaches within walking distance, both with tavernas. For those who want a quiet break but enjoy a the busy nightlife the buzz of Fiskardo is only 15 minutes drive away. Walking in the area takes you to an abandoned village or along lost footpaths to other quiet villages. Driving gives you access to the whole island and, with the detailed maps provided, you can find your way to wineries, shops or a remote beach of your own.
