What a beautiful place to stay, this place has it all- stunning views and wonderful local places to eat and drink. The hosts were so friendly and the accommodation was faultless in its rustic charm. We can’t wait to book a return visit!

“A NEW EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A beautiful restored olive mill with everything you could wish for. Tucked away gave an atmosphere of the old Crete. A very relaxing and ideal location for people seeking something special. Car is required to fully appreciate local interests.

You know you are somewhere special as soon as you walk into the Old Olive Mill. Beautifully restored, it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The garden area has sun all day but there is plenty of escape from the heat if required. The pool is refreshing and the hot tub is the icing on the cake.
There are some wonderful views from the local tavernas. Farmhouse taverna Katerina was an interesting experience but the food was great despite the lack of a menu but our favourite was Thavma. Great food and very friendly service.
Mark and Jill were great hosts and any issues were very quickly dealt with. We ran out of BBQ gas and it was replaced next morning and following a nasty storm they were round sorting out the garden and tidying up.
Overall a great choice for a relaxing holiday

“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.
