About the villa

This Villa is adjoining to the St.Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel gardens, find out more about the resort here.

A fabulous range of facilities and superb levels of service add an extra dimension to this luxurious villa, positioned close to the seafront in the exclusive enclave of St. Nicholas Bay. Within walking distance of shops, cafés and the colourful harbour of Aghios Nikolaos, and a 600 metre stroll through the grounds from the hotel’s restaurants, swimming pools, spa, water sports and Blue Flag beach, Olives House is surrounded by resort attractions, yet feels quite intimate and secluded in its private walled garden. Air-conditioned throughout, a single and two twin bedrooms occupy the ground floor at pool terrace level, while the master bedroom shares the first floor with an airy living room and al fresco dining terrace.

With bare stone walls, blue and white décor and a boat sail for shade by the seawater pool, comfort comes with character and contemporary style at this rather special family villa in Crete. Room service for continental breakfast is included, and this could be enhanced for effortless leisure with butler, chef and waiter service for lunch or dinner on the villa terrace.

About the area

St Nicolas Bay

Average weather

St Nicolas Bay has high standards of comfort and superb service, fabulous facilities, and its own Blue Flag beach; this luxury hotel and collection of villas in Crete is stylishly set atop seafront slopes.



Paths meander through the grounds to a communal seawater swimming pool and kids’ paddling pool, down to a private sandy beach with good choice of water sports and plenty of sunbeds and parasols. The pampering Poseidon Spa with its steam room, sauna and indoor pool offers a range of treatments for true indulgence and relaxation, while there is a gym for those who like to keep active. Parents can recline by the pool while children make friends at the kids’ club for ages 4 to 11, or why not arrange a special excursion on the hotel’s motor boat or 34ft sailing yacht. There is fun for all the family in the games room, equipped with table tennis, table football and a PlayStation.


Eating and drinking

There is plenty of choice when dining at St Nicolas Bay, which means you’ll never need to venture out of the resort unless you want to explore the surrounding area. Labyrinthos offers indoor and outdoor poolside dining, while the terrace at the Clubhouse is the perfect spot for breakfast with views out to Mirabello Bay. TheBlue Bay offers an all-day menu with Mediterranean and Asian dishes, as well as drinks and snacks around the pool. The Minotaureis a special venue for a candlelit dinner under the stars, but if you’d prefer a livelier atmosphere the Greek Kafenion serves up authentic Cretan food and live music. The Astra Bar is the ideal place to socialise with an after dinner drink, and don’t miss a sundowner at the Bonatsa Jetty Bar
