Olive Grove Studios - (Accommodation in Svoronata)

We visited Olive Grove Apartment on the 13th of June for 2 weeks. We were very impressed with the peaceful location and the cleanliness of the apartments. If you do intend to self cater then the apartments are very basic. You will need take a sharp knife for cutting bread and vegetables ( and there is no chopping board). We took a travel kettle which was very useful. You do need a car as there is very limited eating places nearby, there are about 4 restaurants within about a 10-15 minuted walk from the apartments the best in our opinion was Dum Spriros - very friendly and good quality food. Everyone is really friendly both guests staying at the Olive Grove and locals. The apratments have air conditioning available but Costas the owner charges 6 euros per night if you want it. The grounds are kept immaculate as is the pool and poolside area. Even though the apartments were fully booked there was always plenty of sun beds. This is a good base if you want to explore the island but have a good, reasonably priced base to stay in. We had a throughly good holiday and made lots of good aquaintances! We can recommend visiting Assos and Fiskardo - take care on the roads, some hair pin bends! The road from Fiskardo to Sami on the north east coast has fantastic views.
