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!

It was just the holiday we wanted. Our 30th wedding anniversary with some friends and family. Walked into milatos during the day and night through the stay. Audrey was vey helpful and booked us taxis into sissi. There were 13 of us 12 adults and 1 child. Very relaxing lazy days by the pool with a bbq lunch, boat trip to st.George's bay or a sociable lively cocktail in ormos Sissi, there really is everything round you that anyone could wish for with a fantastic villa as your Base. Both Audrey and eva were very helpful throughot our stay. Would highly recommend villa Neraida to anyone.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    We arrived at the villa late at night but despite this the owners were there to greet us and had supplied a very good welcome pack. They showed us around and gave lots of verbal information. The villa lies midway between Milatos and Sissi and you get a steady flow of traffic using the road in front.. The villa is very well equipped. However we did choose to buy a knife for preparation of food as the ones available were blunt - this could have been due to having a glass chopping board. It is the outside space that has the WOW factor of the villa. It is large, interesting and offers many benefits. There are so many seating areas for different purposes eg sunbathing, relaxing, alfresco dining as well as being in the shade or the sun and we used them all. Not forgetting the 'all one depth' pool and swim up bar. It is the reason we chose the villa as living in the UK it is important you can enjoy your outside space while on holiday. The inside of the house is kept beautifully and decorated to the owners individual style. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. There was excellent contact from the owners when booking the villa. The air conditioning unit in the main bedroom did not work on arrival but it was fixed the next day and when the electricity went off on the day of our departure it was sorted immediately. The owners were extremely kind and allowed us to stay until 6 pm on the day of departure as we had a late flight. From a Renter's point of view It is advantageous to have the opportunity to read comments made by previous renters in a Visitor's Book. Verbal information given on night of arrival should be backed up in the Welcome Book e.g. how to operate the TV. Although there were only three DO NOTS in the Welcome book there were more given verbally which left you with a rather downcast feeling. A beautiful feature of the garden was spot lights picking out the trees however in order to enjoy this while dining al fresco you had to walk past the sensor every five minutes. To BBQ at night it would have been beneficial to have lighting in this area. As there was no sprinkler system for the garden this meant a trip to the villa by the owners every other night. As renters who like to self cater this meant quite a lot of intrusion just when we would be eating so to get over this we felt governed on the nights we ate out.
