    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    The Mill was originally Turkish owned as late as the 19th Century. The Mill fell into disuse in the late 1950s and subsequently was home to goats and sheep!! The present sympathetic conversion was carried out using professional architects and builders from Agios Nikolaos. The resultant building is absolutely charming and the villagers of Vrouhas are extremely friendly. Many of them in fact earned their living during their working lives in The Mill,

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The Olive Mill in Vruchas, a village a few kilometres up in the mountains above Plaka, the latter being maybe 6 Km from Elounda, was a wonderful place to stay. The property is spacious and full of character. The village was quiet but nevertheless had its own taverna offering excellent food. The drive down to Plaka offers breathtaking views and a choice of further excellent tavernas. You need a hire car, but nevertheless highly recommended. more
