Fantastic accommodation in the heart of the village. The villa has all you need for a luxurious, comfortable and relaxing stay with lots of helpful information about both the village and the island provided by the owners Jill and Mark. Good restaurants within walking distance in the village with great food and great views. Worth also driving further afield to discover the island. Highly recommended and would definitely visit again.
The old olive mill fitted our bill perfectly . Quiet, peaceful, lovely weather, walking distance to several tavernas with exquisite views , and the mill comfortable and well equipped. Rural yet close to everything ; a perfect base. Nothing beat the relaxation of floating in the pool watching what we hoped were eagles circling in the mountains . Thank you!
Lovely old house in quiet ancient village. Very well equipped kitchen, 3 double bedrooms with showers. Lovely courtyard garden with small pool & hot-tub. Ideal for 3 couples or a small family. Very friendly caretaker living next door for any problems.
The Olive Mill was a very beautiful very well equipped home. It was near Rethymnon which we liked very much but in a much quieter less touristy place. The owners could not have been kinder. We would definately go back.
As everyone else has said, the Old Olive Mill is every bit as comfortable and lovely as it appears in the photos. John, who lives next door, takes care of the villa for the owners, and he and his family were of tremendous help throughout our trip, in dealing with our little adversities like parking tickets, dead batteries, a night time pharmacy run, printing boarding passes, etc., etc. Maroulas is a traditional small village with fascinating, Venetian and Turkish architecture, and a marvelous view of the Aegean Sea far below. There are several tavernas- Mylopetra, Taverna Katrina, Taverna Fantastico- all of which serve flood that is fresh from their gardens and flocks, and is uniformly delicious, The people of Maroulas could not have been nicer or friendlier. If you are looking for a peaceful and serene holiday to rest up from the stress of modern life, I highly recommend Maroulas and the Old Olive Mill.
