“A beautiful house - just perfect with lovely garden, pool & hot tub!”

Thank you for such a lovely holiday, going away with teenagers can be tricky but our boys enjoyed the pool, the hot tub, the space to get away from us in their own rooms in the separate building, with the separate terraces - the pictures really don't do it justice!
Just would say its essential to have a car really, the the car hire company recommended were really great so helpful in every way.

Liked best: It was all good- but having a peaceful retreat with pool after a day's exploring, or on the beach, was a real treat.

“Stunning holiday location and facilities”

Am writing this review on the last evening of a week's stay at the Old Olive Mill. I would say that although the description on the listing is accurate, it does not and cannot do justice to how fabulous the place is. Our party consisted of my wife and two sons aged 16 and 19, my eldest's girlfriend and myself. At no time was any one of us unhappy during our stay. The garden is beautiful with a great pool for cooling off and the luxurious hot tub for relaxing. The decoration and facilities throughout the Mill are of high quality and there is so much room that it is impossible to be uncomfortable. I love the various escape spots like two wonderful roof sunbathing areas - particularly the sheltered sun sofa. The owners, Mark and Jill are wonderful hosts and can't do enough for you and are great company and you are made to feel to treat the Mill as your home for the duration of you stay.The village of Maroulas itself is stunning and the locals are so friendly and charming you might feel you have lived here for years! There are several superb tavernas in the village - all of which will provide delicious traditional Greek hospitality in spades - all located in locations which provide breath taking panoramic views across the island from some 250m above sea level. The town of Rhythmenon is a ten minute drive from the Mill where you will find all the tourist facilities you could want plus beautiful coastline for swimming and sun worshipping. I know this review paints a great picture of The Old Olive Mill, but trust me the reality is far better! We will be back as soon as we can.
