Originally established as the village olive press, this property underwent a thoughtful conversion in 2012 and now stands as a splendid villa. Revel in the luxurious amenities, including a stunning infinity-style pool, ample private outdoor spaces for sunbathing, and a delightful hanging chair offering views of the lush forest and the sea. Guests can also indulge in culinary delights with a BBQ and pizza oven at their disposal. Adjacent to the house, a shaded decking area beckons with a dining table and comfortable seating for eight, complemented by a sofa and two chairs.
Stroll around the pool and ascend a few steps to discover an elevated seating platform, providing panoramic views of the island of Ithaca. This idyllic spot is perfect for reading, soaking in the sea views, or witnessing the island's transformation into soft pink hues as the sun sets. For the more adventurous, a uniquely converted red telephone box discreetly houses a WC with a view!
Step inside to find a luminous and stylish interior, featuring an inviting open-plan living, kitchen, and dining area. The well-equipped kitchen boasts modern fixtures and fittings, allowing for delightful home-cooked meals.
The Mezzanine, situated above the kitchen and dining area, boasts two single beds and an en-suite bathroom with WC and shower. Descend the stairs to the lower level, where two double en-suite bedrooms await. A glass walkway on the same level connects the main house to the 'Honeypot,' a charming space with two single beds, a small kitchen, and a bathroom with WC and shower. Additional convenience is offered by a separate WC beneath the stairs, and the entire property is equipped with air conditioning.
The Olive Press stands as the epitome of a perfect villa for a family getaway. Many of our delighted guests return year after year, drawn to its well-thought-out design and secluded location.

Beaches we like to visit
Within 5 minutes drive
Foki is a few minutes away by car. It is in a protected bay with a shady olive grove and a cave to swim to and explore as well as a taverna very close-by.
Within 15 minutes drive
Agia Jerusalem beach is a pebble beach with crystal clear water making for great paddling, swimming and if you like to snorkel it's worth swimming out to the rocks where you will find much more marine life than in the bay itself. In high season sun-beds are available for hire on the beach and there is a taverna serving traditional Greek food.
Alaties beach is small but perfectly formed where you can lap up the sunshine either on the beach itself or on the surrounding rocks. There’s good parking available and a beach bar serving food all day and into the evening where you can watch the sun set with a cocktail in hand.
Emblissi beach just outside of Fiskardo is easily accessible, has great swimming, wonderful views across to Lefkas and Meganisi. There's good parking although it does get busy in July and August.
Kimilia beach is a hidden gem accessible only by boat or by foot by following a winding forest path. We recommend you take food and as there are no facilities at the beach.
Dafnoudi beach with its crystal clear water is worth the 10-15 minute hike down from where you park. Of course you can also access the beach by boat. We recommend you take food and water as there are no facilities at the beach.
