This setting has been imaginatively recreated at the Olive Press with two pools; an upper pool which cascades into a lower pool.
Nightlighting illuminates the area so it can also be enjoyed in the evening.The magical swimming pool has been modeled around the 'Baths of Aphrodite'. This mythical location is where the the Goddess of Love used to take her bath in a cool pond near Polis. According to legend, Aphrodite used to bathe in this pond, set within an olive grove with sweet smelling wild flowers. It is here that she met her beloved Adonis for the first time. Adonis was hunting in the Akamas forest when stopped to quench his thirst. He was struck by the sight of the naked goddess bathing in the crystal waters. Aphrodite and Adonis were instantly bewitched by each other's extraordinary beauty!

The Olive Press - Agni Bay Reviews
Olive Press is a lovely building and in a lovely setting.
The 3 night holiday exceeded all our expectations as a group of 5 women celebrating our 40th birthdays. The villa was fantastic! Well maintained and furnished with a great balance of modern facilities and historical features. The dual pool is certainly the jewel in the crown of The Olive Press. We also enjoyed the friendliness and hospitality of 3 of the Tavernas down on the beach - a short walk down the hill and slightly longer when trying to get back up. The staff at Taverna Nikolas were particularly helpful, booking a taxi for us on our final day and allowing us to lounge there for most of the day after we had checked out of the villa. Their Greek Night was a lot of fun too - book in advance to ensure you get a table. The sea is lovely and clear in the bay and a short walk on the coastal path leads you to a bay without boat jetties so perfect for swimming. We had hoped the take a boat ride but 3 nights wasnt quite enough to fit one in - maybe next time! We also wanted to mention how great Barbara was at the Aphrodite Supermarket in Nissaki, a quick call to her and she sent someone out to pick us up to get our groceries and then drive us back. The food from there was great too especially the freshly made hummus and tzatiziki. As they deliver bread to the restaurants in the bay in the morning you can also send them an email with a list and they will deliver to you direct. As we had a late return flight we also spent our last afternoon in Corfu Town which is great for exploring and souvenirs - its easy to get a taxi from there direct to the airport (taxi rank opposite the McDonalds) and there are so many cafes around the square to choose from. The one thing which was a bit of a pain was how much we got bitten despite using repellent - would recommend taking long trousers/tops etc for the evenings and mosquito nets - especially if travelling with kids. All in all an amazing break!
Location excellent. Villa excellent.
We have been to Greece many times on different islands but never seen a house with comfort and style like this. The equipment was perfect everything worked well. The youngest was 13 month the oldest 84 years. But it is necessary to be careful about the steps...Thank you for a perfect holiday from all of us. Best regards
We had an amazing holiday and we loved the villa. It was the most beautiful setting. The pools were so beautiful and so cooling - just what we were looking for. We loved the shade that the olive trees gave us and the atmosphere of the house and grounds was very very special. We loved being there and felt very lucky to have spent a week in such a special place.
We were 10 single women friends and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The weather was great apart from one slightly drizzly day ( it was still warm and pleasant ). We spent the time walking up and down the coast exploring the other bays sunbathing swimming eating and drinking in the tavernas (Nikolas was our favourite as it was most reasonable and friendly though Taverna Agni was very good and almost Michelin star quality ). The villa itself was an absolute delight there were so many beautiful places to sit and contemplate the surroundings and sea view. The pools were lovely to swim in especially the lower pool. We also got a treat coming back from the Taverna at night to be shown a display of fireflies dancing in front of our eyes as we went up the road.
Wonderful family holiday for two weeks in unspoilt Agni and the combination of a boat and the pool and a beautifully restored home made it pretty perfect.
Beautiful villa, lovely town, great tavernas (especially Nikolas) and would go again!
We were a family of 11 ranging from 14 years to 80 years and the villa and the location suited all of us. The walk to Agni bay is quite steep in places but fortunately my 80 year old father in-law is reasonably fit but could be an issue for others. The villa was absolutely beautiful even more so than we were expecting from the photos. So much space inside and out there was always a spot for everyone to relax the kids of all ages absolutely loved the hammocks and we have had to promise to get some for home. Agni Bay is such a great location Spiros (Agni Bay Boats) was extremely helpful with boat hire and the Aphrodite Supermarket team were amazing if they haven't got what you want they will do their best to get it for you. The Tavernas and snack bar in the bay provided us with a reasonable variety of places to eat and we hired Dinos water taxi to take us further afield when we wanted a change of scene. We were very fortunate to be there for almost three weeks and I could go back tomorrow. Would highly recommend this villa it is stunning!
Overall the villa was great and all we could have ever wished for and Agni bay and its tavernas was terrific.
It was absolutely lovely. There was just the right amount of contact from the agent and the people who came in to clean, clean the pool and garden were very polite and welcoming. We just loved it being a family house with all the family history around the place, everyone thought it was delightful.
We did have a most excellent holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed the locality and position of the interesting villa. We ate at all three tarvernas which were excellent. Nicholas Tarverna has not changed and just as good as it ever was with the same charming people working there, ( 41 years I believe). Alex with his boats was extremely helpful as always. I'm sure we will return once again thank you all for your professional service.
Excellent. The property for us was wonderful as we had 11 people there - and the downstairs annex was great for the younger members of our group.
The holiday was a great success and all the guests old and young had a wonderful time. Thank you for a memorable holiday and we really loved the villa and all its history which we heard from our friends who live there
We had a most enjoyable holiday. Our thanks to you and your colleagues for making it so. When we needed your help with the safe you sorted it out quickly. A lovely villa in a beautiful and quiet setting. Thank you once again.
We had a wonderful holiday. Apart from the glorious position and amenities of the Olive Press, we particularly liked the personal feel. The basics were already there so that we could have a cup of coffee, a wash and so on before heading off to do the shopping.
An idyllic setting with amazing terraces and pools - easy to find either a sunny or a shady spot during the day. Great location near to the wonderful Agni Bay - very convenient for Tavernas and Boat Hire. The view from the upper Master Bedroom is one of the best we have ever seen - whether lying in bed or on its private balcony (which you could stay on all day). This quirky and unique villa will delight any holidaymaker.
A beautiful house with a fabulous pool in a gorgeous location.
This is a beautiful house and all are lucky to stay there
The Olive Press is a wonderful house in the most superb setting. Our extended family holiday was a dream come true a time to relax and take in the beautiful Corfu landscape. The Agni Bay tavernas were a joy so hospitable and great food. Everything was beyond our expectations and we cant thank your team and the villa owners enough for making our holiday so special.And please pass on our special thanks to Vasileka our cleaner - she is lovely.
We had a brilliant week at your gorgeous property - even more beautiful than wed expected it to be. We had perfect weather all week and spent the entire time relaxing in the sun or in the hammocks swimming in the pools or the incredibly warm sea eating lots (including in two of the lovely tavernas) and one day was spent pootling about the coast in boats we rented from Agni Boats. Couldnt recommend it enough as the perfect place to get rid of all the stress accumulated over a few busy months at work. Wish we were all still there.
Very accurate description. And I dont think the beautiful photos even do it justice
