Villa The Olive Mill, Overview

This property is a 250 year-old olive oil press that has been recently restored to create an elegant villa that combines discreet rural chic with modern amenities, in the picturesque village of Gavalohori outside the historic town of Chania. The property is an ancient monument, a remarkable example of local, traditional architecture. Elements such as the main entrance, the stone openings, the interior patio, the traditional exterior oven, the well and the semi-circular arches typical of the architecture of the time, as well as the original oil extraction machinery, have all been preserved intact.

The three cottages are named after the trees on the property: Elia (Olive tree), Rodia (Pomegranate tree) and Karydia (Walnut tree).
