Just returned from the Olive Grove having spent the half term break there with my family including two children aged 3 and 6. I have to say it was better than expected and very quiet. The proximity to the airport was not problem as very few flights and not very loud.
We had a two bedroom apartment which was well maintained and cleaned thoughout and had a full size fridge freezer in the kitchen.
The swimming pools were excellent and safe for children and the pool bar represented good value for money.
The nearest supermarket is about a ten minute walk away and stocks a reasonable range of products but appears expensive but this is only due to the terrible exchange rate at present.
There are six tavernas within a ten minute walk and all offer a good range of food at reasonable cost but it appears Gemini bistro has either closed down or not yet open
The closest beach (Avithos) is a thirty minute walk away but a decent beach with three tavernas next to it.
We attended the welcome meeting with Thomas Cook and they give you a leaflet from Avis for car hire the prices of which can only be described as shocking
. Luckily I had read previous posts and knew that Greekstones ( a ten minute walk) was the place to go.
We booked our car for HALF the price of the Thomas Cook deal and it was much better in terms of insurance cover provided. Have a look at their website before you go and you will see what I mean
We got out and about in the car and the roads are no different than other Greek Islands we have visited and ther is a great deal to see. The underground lake was the highlight for all of us and antisamos beach is beautiful.
