BLUEBAY COTTAGE

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Milatos - Bluebay Cottage

3 bedroom renovated house in traditional Cretan village

A beautifully restored traditional village house in its own grounds set in an elevated position in the unspoilt living village of Milatos.

Ideally suited for those discerning holidaymakers who want tranquillity but accessibility to beaches, tavernas, mountains, attractive market towns and holiday resorts.

The house is intimate enough for just a couple yet large enough for a family of 6 persons.

The accommodation comprises of one air-conditioned master-bedroom with adjoining bathroom, two further air-conditioned bedrooms on the mezzanine floor (1 double & 2 single beds). Additional family bathroom, study, open plan living/dining area with wood burning stove and a well equipped kitchen with modern facilities.

Many attractive design features brings this old family house to life.

The roof terrace has a generous shaded dining table and sun terrace sheltered by bougainvillea all enjoying panoramic views of the sea. Below is a private courtyard with wood oven and garden.

Your Holiday: Milatos is such an excellent base to explore this amazing island. There are beautiful coastal and mountain drives, many internationally acclaimed archaeological sites, traditional villages, market towns, museums, sandy beaches with crystal clear safe waters, rocky coves and a variety of sports and water sports. A holiday is not long enough, so pace yourself and just enjoy whatever you fancy. If you travel around come back at the end of the day to relax on your private sea view terrace. Wander down to a restaurant in the village or the selection of restaurants on the seafront.

This is not a village for wild night-life, music or bars but a tranquil place to slow down, re-energise yourself and return home refreshed.

At Your Service: We provide all the services before, during and after occupation to make your stay carefree & enjoyable.

We arrange everything to a high standard from meet & greet, cleaning, laundry and emergency on call 24 hours a day.

Really Enjoyable

  • 4 out of 5
The property is located in a small tradional Greek village with sea views and is very well equipped. There were a couple of local taverns about 100m away and they were very good value. They are more tavernas down at the beach, approx a 15/20 min walk. There appears to be a local bus service but unless you intend to "stay put", I would rcommend you hire a car or other form of transport to get around as Paul says - the smaller the better as parking is limited close to the cottage. We were very pleased with the accommodation, standard of finish and cleanliness of the cottage. The village was very quiet, which was just what we were after. Only slight niggles were (1) the moble phoe coverage was very poor to non existent at the cottage and (2) there was no WiFi in the cottage so I had to go down to one of the local tavernas/cafes for access.On balance I think it helped me to reduce my internet dependency - no bad thing!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, yes the village life is very relaxing. Some mobile operators currently have poor coverage in the village but others are good, that's the problem with those beautiful mountains surrounding you. As for the internet most local restaurants and bars have free WiFi with the bonus of a relaxing drink. Nice sometimes to not always being tied to our devices. Kind regards Paul

BLUE BAY COTTAGE, MILATOS, CRETE

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great property in a wonderful idyllic location. The house is clean and very well equipped and as advertised. The terrace provides the most magnificent view to the Mediterranean and surrounding mountains. While the beach is within walking distance it is a hard 20 minutes or more walk back up the hill. A hire care is recommended and its 5 minutes to the beach. Given Milatos itself is a small very traditional Greek village you will need a car to get to a cash machine, post office and pharmacy in nearby Sisi (only 15 minutes by car). The location of Blue Bay in Milatos is wonderful if you want a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Lots of great little restaurants along the waters edge but dont miss the little restaurants in the village. There are two only a few minutes walk down the hill from Blue Bay Cottage. We enjoyed 8 days of wonderful relaxation in this lovely little villa. The manager was helpful and always available. I would highly recommend this rental. While Milatos is a quiet little village nightlife is accessible only 15 minutes away in Sisi or a little further to Malia. An wonderful drive up the and through the mountains to other towns such as Napolini is a must though the alternative via the national road is faster (you miss out on the magnificent scenery you get going through the mountain roads). Nothing beats spending your time on the beautiful terrace at Blue Bay cottage. Only draw back was no access to Wi Fi but it is available at Socrates restaurant at the beach.

Ideal for a family group or good friends

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of 6 arrived in stages (the 2 who were lucky enough to be the advance party, then the Gang of Four). The location and premises were ideal, from the initial help in getting from the airport to the cottage, to quick response to an emergency. We cooked most of our meals - both indoors & in the outdoor wood oven. The two tavernas & one bar in Milatos and a restaurant in Epano Sissi took care of all our socializing needs. The layout of the two floors is efficient and attractive. The upper terrace & lower courtyard provided comfortable areas for relaxation, reading & dining. The location is well-situated as a base to travel to eastern & south-eastern Crete (Sitia, Ierapetra, etc.). The best beach we found was just past the archaeological dig near Malia. Highly recommended if you want peace, quiet & privacy.

Car: recommended

Located in the centre of the traditional village of Milatos, North East Crete. The house enjoys panoramic views over the village, valley, mountains and sea. Just 1 km away you can enjoy the waterfront tavernas of Milatos serving good Greek food and locally caught fish. The beaches provide safe swimming and quiet relaxation.

Milatos is far enough away from the busy holiday resorts yet close enough to take advantage of their facilities for shopping and dining. The renowned resorts of Elounda, Hersonisos and Agios Nikolaos are just a short drive away.

Golf: The beautiful 18 hole golf course of Hersonnisos is just 25 minutes drive away set in the mountains overlooking the north coast. Some of the local 5 star hotels also have 9 hole courses.
