The Stone Village of Milia ( Milia / Chania)

13 Rooms / 1 Suite


This amazingly beautiful and remote Shangri-La, offers accommodation, which is quite unique in Crete. Milia is an original old mountain hamlet which has been lovingly and imaginatively restored from ruins. All possible care has been given to the authenticity of this tiny hamlet, using natural materials and energy sources, which were used in its heyday.

This extends to the interiors of each beautiful stone cottage, which has been simply furnished with antiques, starched linen curtains, stone basins and little oil lamps.
Each cottage is individual, but each has a spacious bed/ living room and a shower/WC. An electricity generator is on for a few hours per day and a wood burning stove provides hot water.
Milia is an utterly enchanting place with outstandingly beautiful countryside, which is thickly clothed with trees, shrubs and herbs of every kind and is alive with honeybees and butterflies. It sits at the end of 4,5 km unsurfaced road which takes you along a breathtakingly fabulous route across folds of mountain from Vlatos, a village above the road to Kastelli. Not for the faint hearted!
The cluster of stone cottages provides 13 rooms in all or a total of 25 beds, and some cottages can be interconnected for families. Further there is 1 suite, having one double bed and two sofa beds. Breakfast and traditional Cretan evening meals are served in a cosy farmhouse dining/kitchen around a huge wooden table. Delicious fresh bread is baked every day at Milia.
It is a place for nature lovers, for romantics, for those who delight in country hikes in lush flora and fauna, and a simple healthy old fashioned lifestyle far away from the maddening crowd. A car is essential.
