Things to do in Milatos, Greece

There is a pebble beach and a short sandy stretch near the harbour, and as well as relaxing it is possible to enjoy a spot of fishing or swimming here, as you watch the fisherman go about bringing in the days catch.

The main draw of Milatos is the restaurants. If you would like to sample some of the freshest and tastiest fish on the island, then this is the place to come. Most of the traditional seafood tavernas are located around the harbour, and an outside table will be rewarded with fine beautiful sea views.

For a unique experience head to Milatos Cave. This cave measures over 2,000sq metres and dates back to the Neolithic period. It is known locally as the sight of a battle between the local army and Turkish invaders in 1823, and is now something of a tourist attraction, housing a memorial and a small church. Make sure you take a torch though – it's pitch black in there!

The property was extremely well kept and very unique, with more than ample space for 8 adults. The local area was untouched by commercialism, the locals were extremely friendly and many of the restaurants that we visited knew Audrey and were very attentive. We spent a day in Malia on my wife's birthday and again was spoilt by the staff at Candy Club's Beach Bar. We had a fantastic holiday and we were all very sad to leave and would love to return, highly recommended.

We had our relaxing morning coffees in the secluded lower courtyard underneath the bougainvillea and all other meals outside on the pretty terrace which has views over the tranquil village and the olive groves to the sea and also up to the mountains. The cottage is clean and well equipped and we spent a very happy, relaxing week here using it as a base to explore this part of a fascinating island. The property owner, Paul, responds quickly and courteously to all emails and the property manager,Edith, met us promptly and made us feel very welcome. Thank you!

                                                                                                      To give you some context, we were a party of 7 with a 1 year old, 2 people in their 30's and 4 over 65! We had a lovely break in Sisi and found the Villa to be perfect. The lounge, dining area and kitchen are very spacious with a large balcony overlooking the olive trees - very nice to watch the sunset from. It was also very safe for a 1 year old to crawl round (once we had blocked the stairs off with cushions!). The bedrooms were very nice - 2 lovely rooms on the top floor, 4 rooms on the bottom floor (the living space is in-between!). I would say air conditioning is a must in Crete and this villa had it in every bedroom. The outdoor eating area is really good and the bbq excellent. The pool area was nice too. The location of the villa is perfect. Its a 10 minute walk into the village & if you don't fancy the 10 minutes back its only 5 euros in a taxi - they were always available. The restaurants in the village were very good. The village beach is very small BUT the beach just beside the nearby ancient palace is one of the best we have ever been to and is a 5 minute drive. Finally, Audrey and Eva were superb throughout our stay - making sure we had everything we need, giving us recommendations. Its lovely to know that you have someone to help you just in case you need it! I hope you find this review helpful!
