The Old Olive Mill is stunning - beautifully converted and decorated whilst keeping all the character of the building. It was even better than we had expected and I can't rate this place highly enough. Jill and Mark (the owners) happened to be staying in the village when we arrived and were extremely welcoming and friendly. The village is beautiful,...

Our second stay at The Old Olive Mill was even better than the previous. A beautiful building in a superb setting. The village of Maroulas is idyllic and an excellent base for exploring Crete. I can't recommend the villa highly enough

Many places of local interest, cultural and active although car essential but all within relatively easy driving distance. Good choices of places to eat both within village and in local area and...

About the neighborhood
The beautiful harbour of Rethymnon, is a Greek treat and a half. You only need to take a stroll around its intricate maze of streets, laced with white-washed cottages, past fine buildings and churches and you'll experience the real Crete. It seems little has changed for decades here. The open air markets are as lively as ever, and the shops, the tavernas and al fresco restaurants fizz with activity. And wherever you wander, you'll notice the influence of previous visitors. The Venetians held Rethymnon in high regard and their architecture can be seen in quiet courtyards and elaborate fountains, as well as the huge fortress which stands above the harbour, presenting a stern face northwards across the Sea of Crete. Yet for all its authentic charm, everything you could need here is to... more
