The World Travel Awards ceremony
The night of September 29th was a memorable one for Olive Villa Rentals. Earlier in the season, our company was nominated for two of the 2023 World Travel Awards: Greece’s Leading Holiday Villa Rental Company and Greece’s Leading Luxury Private Villa.
The 2023 World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony took place in Batumi, Georgia—the “rising star of world tourism,” in the words of Graham Cooke, founder of the WTA.

The majority of the voters, both industry members—whose vote is double—and members of the public, chose Olive Villa Rentals as Greece’s Leading Holiday Villa Rental Company and the magnificent Villa Primavera as Greece’s Leading Luxury Private Villa for 2023.
At Olive Villa Rentals, we are incredibly proud of having created a unique hospitality brand that offers the most memorable luxury holiday experiences with attention to detail and a deep understanding of every traveler’s diverse needs. Being honored with Greece’s Leading Holiday Villa Rental Company Gold Award at the World Travel Award is a testament to our everlasting zest for providing each client with the ideal luxury villa, a hassle-free stay with superior personal services fully adapted to their demands, and the best local tips for a wholesome travel experience.
We are also thrilled to announce that Villa Primavera, one of our most acclaimed properties, has been named the top in its class in the 2023 WTA as Greece’s Leading Luxury Private Villa. It’s a much-deserved honor for the lavish villa that sits on a beautiful hillside along the Athens Riviera against the dreamy backdrop of the Attica sunset. Offering unparalleled extravagance, luxuries galore, and palatial accommodations, Villa Primavera seems truly destined to collect global accolades and welcome the most distinguished guests from all over the world.
The prominent organization behind the esteemed World Travel Awards was established in 1993 with a mission to celebrate and reward excellence and quality across the global tourism industry, encompassing travel, hospitality, and other traveler-oriented services. Each year since its inception, the WTA has organized separate ceremonies on each continent, presenting awards at both the country and regional levels. Regional winners have one more chance to shine at the end of the year when they compete against each other in the Grand Final.
This year, the World Travel Awards organization is celebrating 30 marvelous years of highlighting global tourism’s most brilliant service providers. Hence, the 2023 WTA European Gala Ceremony was part of a spectacular three-day event honoring the organization’s 30th anniversary and decades-long contribution to the industry.
World Travel Awards and voters, we extend our gratitude for an outstanding conclusion to an extraordinary year.
