We are lifelong friends and co-owners John D. and Marcus Milton. With the help of our very understanding wives(!)we manage the 5 spacious villas we have built in our private olive grove (the size of 5 football pitches) in one of the most beautiful locations in Crete. Each house is detached, and not immediately overlooked, with plenty of outside space. We feel this is very important because we know you would prefer not to be immediately overlooked by the villa next door. (Typically, each house is separated by 60 metres of colourful gardens, and screened by mature trees.)
We chose this spot because it is between the two villages of Almyrida (by the sea) and Gavalochori (3km inland) so has the benefit of village facilities nearby but with the peace and tranquility of the beautiful Cretan countryside.
Every year, in November, we harvest the trees surrounding the villas to produce some of the best extra-virgin olive oil in the region. Search for us online: Saint Basil Olive Grove

The villa is well appointed and made our stay very …
