This house is simply stunning - luxurious but understated, modern but perfectly in tune with it’s surroundings with everything that you might possibly need. There are four large beautiful en-suite bedrooms with a stunning open plan kitchen, sitting room and dining area all opening onto the pool, plus there’s extra accommodation for staff downstairs too.


I arrived exhausted but within two days I felt rested, relaxed and rejuvenated - retreat is the right word. The house is very privately situated down a lane set amongst an olive grove with lots of Mediterranean planting close to the house - the scent of herbs and jasmine fills the air. It is the sort of place that you really do not need to leave but there is lots to see and do locally : stunning beaches, pretty towns, ancient ruins and Venetian castles all within half an hour. The whole area is unspoilt and tourism low key. 


Stella the house manager is at the end of the phone if you need her and couldn’t be more helpful. I loved it so much that we’re going back next year ..... Thank you for a wonderful week.


We had a wonderful stay in The Olive Retreat - where we enjoyed the beautiful view, the quietness, golfing at the 2 nearby golf courses and had terrific dining experiences. The villa lived up to all expectations and we had a very good understanding with the owners. We hold very fond memories of discovering this gorgeous and calm part of Greece - and will surely be back soon !

We enjoyed most of all this perfectly decorated villa, where we got the best service (in house chef & host) we ever had in Greece.
We loved the natural surroundings, the golf courses and the nearby wonderful beaches.
Extra’s we appreciated, Airport transfers, Free excellent WIFI, lots of international TV channels.
Congratulations to the owners.

We had been to the Romanos area of the Southern Pelleponesse before and were delighted to find this house on Third Home. As usual there was some worry about whether our assessment of the property would be accurate. Well this place completely exceeded our expectations! The villa is an architectural masterpiece sited on a hill overlooking the sea and mountains, and completely surrounded by an olive orchard. Every detail of the house was perfect and it was set up almost like a hotel with a large service area in the basement with a second (commercial) kitchen and every possible support function. We paid for the magnificent pool to be heated and were in it everyday. The patio is huge and a great place to read or eat or just look at the amazing view.. Nearby are countless famous archeological sites and plenty of good restaurants. Nearby you can sail or dive in the Ionian Sea. And to top it all off there is Stella who manages the property expertly and tenderly. You will not find on a better property on Third Home..

Prior to arrival communication was handled by Stella who proved to be invaluable when getting detail on the locality and extremely responsive to any requests. Stella and her team were in and out of the house providing us with a level of unobtrusive service rarely found elsewhere. Stella is a Diamond... The pictures of the house are impressive but nothing prepares you for the location, design, build quality and presentation of this home. The owners have spared no expense in fitting out their home and it really could be "No 1 Third Home". We will watch this property and snap up any availability in a heartbeat. A self build Holiday home is a special investment and your own is always going to be hard to beat but The Olive Retreat is very very special. The time and effort that has been invested here shows. We loved it, favourite house ever! The area is stunning, unspoilt yet with many really nice relaxed Restaurants to spend warm evenings relaxing. Catching a coffee under a tree in the square in Pylos while watching the fishermen selling their catch is a simple yet rare unique pleasure. The many sites of archeological interest rival any others in Greece and importantly are within easy reach. The tranquility and friendliness of people found here is such a change from the more developed areas around Europe we are more familiar with. Our Hosts Guy and Catherine were over the top in their generosity and a perfect welcome pack greeted us on arrival. Golf bookings during our stay were hard to secure but with the help of Stella and Guy we secured the tee times we wanted. Guy invited us to play with him and also introduced us to his friends who were most inclusive and a pleasure to meet. The Bar has now been set so high for the rest of us members it is hard to see how we could possibly surpass this location, house or the level of Hospitality extended to us by Guy, Catherine, Stella and Team. Thank you all...

Wow - what a great stay at The Olive Retreat. All said above is true. The views are stunning. Stella is wonderful and the house is extremely well designed and very comfortable. A home like this is the reason we joined Thirdhome (we also have a purposely built vacation villa and know the work that went into the design, build and provisioning). It was a great base to explore the beautiful Peloponnesian Coast - Mystras, Messene, Pylos, etc. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. 


What an amazing Villa

 Left on Apr 8, 2019 for a stay in Mar 2019

We are a group of 7 seniors from Spain. We stayed at Olive retreat for a week and we do not have enough words to say how amazing it was. The villa lay out is really nice with 4 spacious en suite bedrooms and a large living room. The pool even it was beginning of April it was a plus for a refreshing bath after walking on the paths of the millennial Olive trees and Orange trees that this magnificent Villa has. It even has a really nice kids tree house. Next time we go we will take our grand daughters!! Stella received us with a very warm welcome she gave us lots of information of places to see and things to do. Even before arriving she was very diligent with all the communications. We travel a lot all over the world and we like high quality villas but The Olive retreat was above them all. Thanks again for this amazing week. We will come back in the future!!
