Welcome to Villa Olga!
Artistically designed, just beside the seaside, located in a bay opposite to the sunken ancient town of Asopos, gives opportunities for resting, entertainment and knowledge. It is ideal for holidays for a big family or a large group of friends since there can be accommodated eight to ten persons.
Villa Olga is built in a beautiful Mediterranean garden with lemon and pomegranate trees, palm trees, jasmines and roses and every part of it has a view to the nearby blue peaceful sea.
A particular architectural characteristic is the 40 m2 atrium which can be useful during the noon hours to play, relax or have lunch.
Interior is elegantly decorated and provides all modern facilities (internet, TV, A-C, complete kitchen equipment etc).
The sea in front of the Villa has little rocks and just 100 m. away there is a sand beach with shallow sand bottom ideal for small children.
Near to the villa there are two low profile tavernas and in 1 km away, in Plytra, you can find beach bar, cafeterias, tavernas and restaurants.
Tourism in the region is mild. There is possibility for sea sports in the bay, biking or walking using the paths under the olive trees which cover the land. Villa Olga is located in the center of several important places to visit, like the underground lake and cave of Diros, Mani, Mystras, the exotic huge beach of Elafonissos, Sparta. Just 30 km away is Monemvassia the unique castle town of 6th century which is recently restored and except its atmospheric architecture has a beautiful nightlife and sunrise.
Bedrooms 4, bathrooms 2, living room, atrium, veranda, front and back yard, parking for 3 cars, front and back garden, open-air kitchen.

About the region and the beaches:
Karavostassi is a peaceful, small village by the sea. There are only two taverns and one small cafeteria, all facing the sea. Karavostassi is in a walking distance from Plytra, a village by the sea as well.
Karavostassi's sandy beach -which is connected to Plytra's sandy beach- is huge for the needs of the area and you can always find a place to put your umbrella and be isolated if you wish. Otherwise, in Plytra’s beach there is a cafeteria-restaurant.
The water is excellent with shallow sand bottom ideal for small children. It is ideal for sea sports as well, as it is situated in a closed bay and it is completely safe.
From Villa Olga halfway to go to Karavostassi's beach there is a small cafe which serves some plates too. It is on the coastline and its view is well worth a drink.
If there are children, they can walk either along the coastline which consists of low rocks easily to walk on them, or from the road to reach the beach. When I was little (at that time Villa Olga didn't exist and we were staying at my grand-father's village in Assopos) I was spending a lot of relaxed hours with my brother and cousins exploring the coastline at Karavostassi and its treasures... (shells, crabs, sea urchins etc) Either out of the water or in the water... And this is a sweat memory that will always follow me...
You can also walk by the street to reach the beach. As Karavostassi is a dead-end of the road the circulation is low.
Plytra is a nice place to visit during the afternoon and night. You can go either by foot (for someone who likes walking, it is an ideal distance and coastline walk from Karavostassi to Plytra) or by car. Dimitra's restaurant and the one by the Plytra's jetty are by the sea, with very good food and a marvelous view. Plytra has something of old times…
Apart from these, there are several beaches in the area.
Bozas is Assopos' beach where there is only a very good tavern-cafe. The water is excellent and you can enjoy the sunset. You can reach it either from an easy passable earth road, that I will have to show you (only 2 kilometers) or by the main road (9 kilometers away). At Bozas, some nights in august, there is an open-air cinema by the water (on the sandy beach!) which is free of charge.
Other beaches are Tigania (on the way to village Elaia). A bigger version of Bozas.
Kokkines is a red beach (Kokkino in greek language means red and that's why it is called that way) just after Plytras' jetty. There is an ancient sinked city which you can explore only with a sea-mask... It is really remarkable and extraordinary.
You can also find and explore Marathias, Charachia and lots of beaches on the coastline to the way to Elafonissos. In Elafonissos (40-45 kilometers away) you will reach the exotic Simos' beach -with the white sand & the green water- and the picturesque village of the island.
There is always the possibility to pop up to Monemvassia (30 kilometers away), the unique castle town of 6th century which is recently restored and except its atmospheric architecture has a beautiful nightlife.
Another place which I like a lot, is the sea-lagoon of the village of Gerakas (40 kilometers away). A really peaceful and picturesque village with nice taverns to visit during the afternoon.
If you would like a whole day trip, you must visit Mani with several stops: the seacaves of Dyros, the village by the sea of Gerolimenas, the unearthly and unique village of Vathia, the southest part of Peloponese Tenaron, the small and picturesque city of Gythio and at last, one stop to the sea of Valtaki to have a dive around the shipwreck...
There are more secret beaches where you can be almost by yourself. We can have a look at the map when you arrive. I 'm going to be there to welcome you!
