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.

About the neighbourhood
The beautiful harbour of Rethymnon, is a Greek treat and a half.
