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!

Idyllic surprise hidden in the Cretan Hills

5 of 5
Olive View hosted by Julie, lived upto and exceeded all our expectations from the very first minute to when we left 4 days later. The tranquility of the area having driven through some very typical resort style areas from Heraklion made it all the more perfect. The small village with its local taverna when combined with the outstanding view over the olive growing valley, and only a short drive up the hill to Neapoli, a lively local district town, places the property in an ideal location for exploring further afield, away from the hustle and bustle and the more known tourist areas of the north and east coasts. The complete renovation of a former derelict barn by Julie has been tastefully done, with attention to detail well beyond expectation. The furniture and fittings used all complement each other and makes the stay at Olive View all the more enjoyable. Julie’s knowledge of the area from over 25 years experience in the location helped greatly. She was able to point out various locations and sites not on the tourist map which were a MUST to see. We can highly recommend Julie’s Olive View to those travellers seeking something traditional and representative of the local life on Crete.

Super séjour près du bourg hyper paisible de Milatos. Accueil charmant de Rozana et son mari. Tout était prêt pour notre arrivée tardive. Et surtout de quoi nous sustenter! Que de charmantes attentions.
