What Our Clients Say



We have just returned from a wonderful 10day stay at Paliokalivia. We were travelling with a 2 and 6 year old. We stayed in a villa which suited us very nicely.

Redondo Beach, California

I learned so much about the health benefits of (high polyphenol) olive oil! Also enjoyed regular olive oil tasting, along with honey, wine, raisins and liqueurs. Beautiful property a bit off the beaten path but worth a visit!


London, United Kingdom

We stayed for 10 days at Lithies Houses and loved every minute. The house we were given was basic but spacious with a lovely, breezy terrace overlooking the vineyard and olive grove.


Lancaster, United Kingdom

We are on the last evening of a wonderful three weeks at the red house on Logothetis farm. Its difficult to imagine a more beautiful place in the world.


Chech Republic

We entered the first room and I was amazed at the information that was readily available, and also the emotion that was behind the words. Meseum Helmis

This small private group of five villas plus 'reception' (the summer home of the owners) in a peaceful oasis surrounded by pine plantation with just the sound of cicadas, may seem like a different country.


Athens, Greece

A welcoming guesthouse in a quiet village not far from Zakinthos city, Definitely recommended for the ones who seek a relaxing holiday in a not so quiet island, The pool was big and clean, the room size is good and they are clean.

London, UK

Beautiful appartment, well equipped and the most stunning views. We stayed for a week. Maria and all the staff so helpful and attentive. We were greeted with some freshly baked traditional cake and a bottle of their home made wine!


Rome, Italy

Very nice place, ideal for families. Much better to stay without swimming pool but in the countryside.The owner is very kind and she will provide you with very useful advices on where to go in the island.



Ho soggiornato in queste villette nella seconda settimana di agosto e mi sono trovato molto bene;la villetta รจ piuttosto grande per due persone, con una bella area verde che la circonda.
