Set around an ancient millstone and nestled within a blooming garden over the water, the atmospheric Old Mill has received multiple 'Toque d'Or' awards, proclaiming it as one of the finest restaurants in Greece. The multi-award-winning Greek chef, Antonis Petrellis, serves a unique, delicious menu of innovative Cretan cuisine accompanied by an equally astounding wine list.
Spa & Wellness
Boasting a magnificent 2,200m² of space, the Six Senses Spa, was the first of its kind in Europe and offers its guests an authentic Greek holistic experience combined with traditional treatments borrowed from the Far East. World-class facilities, as you would expect from Six Senses, include a Finnish sauna, Turkish Hammam, outdoor bubble beds, a Thalassotherapy pool and a Thermal Suite, as well as the exclusive Tepidarium space which combines the elements of glass, heat, stone and marble to create a wholly relaxing and calm-inducing environment. The Six Senses Spa is located at sister property porto elounda (with complementary shuttle service).
Weather & Seasons
Crete is warm and sunny for the majority of the year. From April/May onwards the weather settles but it can sometimes be cool in the evenings. By mid/end of May, the weather generally settles in a pattern of long hot sunny days and balmy evenings especially in July and August when it can be very hot. Rain is unlikely but it can happen from time to time. May and October are particularly lovely months.
It's about a 4 hour flight from the UK to Heraklion followed by a 50 minute transfer to the hotel.
