Make a holiday rental home or townhouse in Milatos, Greece your home away from home

The sleepy village of Milatos lies one kilometre from the north-east coast of Crete, in the prefecture of Lassithi. Conveniently located near some of the island’s biggest tourist resorts, Milatos itself is a traditional village that is ideal for those who want to enjoy an authentic Cretan experience - sampling the local seafood and simply relaxing and taking in the panoramic views,. Varied self-catering accommodation can be found in Milatos, including authentic townhouses and luxury villas.

Things to do in Milatos, Greece

If the thought of staying in the extremely busy and hedonistic resort of Malia (11km away) is your worst nightmare, then Milatos may just be your ideal holiday rental destination. A traditional Greek village and fishing harbour, Milatos is quiet, relaxing, and largely tourist-free.

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!

We were met by Stafani, the owner, who's delightful and nothing was too much trouble. The villa is very comfortable and has been extremely tastefully decorated to a high standard both inside and out. It is well appointed, light and airy, and spotlessly clean, again both inside and out! It's close the pretty village of Koutouloufari with a good selection of friendly tavernas, shops and mini markets. The owners were friendly and helpful. Stefani was excellent at answering any questions and suggesting places to visit. We enjoyed a trip to Lasithi plateau and stopped at a taverna and a few villages enroute that Stefani had suggested. I would certainly recommend the villa to friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful week, Carole & family

After a 40 minute drive we arrived at the Christi-Petra Villa and what a first impression! We were welcomed shortly after by Christine & Peter who from the moment we met them were warm, friendly and very genuine. We had a tour of the property and given lots of advice about local history, bars, supermarkets and things to be careful of including the local tipple Raki ha ha. We spend our time exploring the island and would chill out in the evening watching films in a beautiful rustic living room. My daughter was really happy with a strong reliable WIFI system and access to Netflix. The villa is without doubt the best we have stayed in and having travelled all over the world that is a real statement of how immaculate this property is presented & maintained. The bedrooms have pristine linen, the kitchen was a home from home and the fridge that delivered ice and cool water was used constantly. The pool, sun terrace, pool bar and surrounding gardens we all superb, against a mountain backdrop running down to the sea over looking the little harbour town of Milatos. I have no negative comments about the villa and our hosts spend a night of their own time taking me and my wife for a lovely meal of local food and yes a glass of Raki. It was a wonderful evening and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend all my family and friends to stay at this villa and we are planning to return in 2017. Thank you to Christine and Peter for a perfect family holiday and for recommending Violet and Willie to organise our hire car. Wilkinson family from Manchester

With space and rooms in abundance, it is perfect for a group or family getaway. Within walking distance of the village of Milatos and a short taxi ride to Sissi, Great service throughout from the booking of the villa, to tips on hot spots to visit and our final farewell from Audrey - superb experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.
