The Old Olive Mill is providing a truly unique holiday for the discerning traveller. The Mill is a privately owned, 4 Bedroom, Villa situated on the North West coast on the island of Crete and offers stunning mountain views to the south and views over the Bay of Hania and the Rodopou Peninsula to the north.

This exclusive vacation property can sleep 10 people in a beautifully restored Venetian building, combining 21st Century comfort with the original olive mill features. Surrounded by stunning sea and mountain views, guests will experience a real feeling of having ‘got away from it all‘.

The Old Olive Mill was originally constructed during the latter part of the Venetian occupation of Crete (1204 - 1669), and is now a protected (or listed) building, and restored over a two year period between 1999 and 2001 under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture. Both the original stone mill, and one of the three original olive presses have been renovated, and form features of this beautifully restored building.

Historically, the rooms, on the rear Ground Floor, were used by the Venetians for the storage of olive oil for local consumption as food, a lubricant, soap and lamp fuel. On the Mezzanine floor, one room, with its own private terrace, has stunning views of the Bay of Hania. All the beds are purpose made of traditional Cretan design, to comply with the requirements of the local Archaeological Dept.

The Mill has its own private garden to the rear of the property and a swimming pool with sun-loungers and parasols. The pool has proved popular with the swallows which dive down in the early evening for water. There is also a small paddling area for use by the younger guests.

Although The Mill is in a secluded location and requires car hire, it offers easy access to the surrounding country side and coast.
