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!

The house itself was beautiful and clean. There is a fantastic pool outside and the garden is lovely. All of the rooms have air conditioning which was great. Eva and Yiannis were the perfect hosts - they met us at the airport and helped us home with our luggage. The fridge was fully stocked when we arrived, and Eva prepared us a meal. They prepared us a further 2 meals throughout the holiday which was a treat. Eva also bakes an exellent cake! (i would love the recipe!). On our day of departure, we had to be out at 12, but our flight wasnt until the evening, so they provided an alternative place for us to store our luggage and pass some time. Yiannis then helped us back to the airport with our luggage. Over all this was a wonderful holiday! Thank you very much :-D

We enjoyed watching the sunset every evening from one of the balconies. Whilst there is not a beach directly outside, we did swim by going down the ladder and we spent a lot of time on the beach which was just a couple of minutes walk to the left out of the back gate where there are also friendly tavernas. The seafront path and road at the back of the house proved good for my early morning runs. There are friendly restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance including directly next door. The supermarkets and butcher almost opposite is really convenient. Kokkini Hani is small, but friendly without being particularly glamorous, but it is a great base for visiting many other areas. Manolis was extremely helpful greeting us on our arrival and arranging for us to hire a car. We had an excellent and relaxing holiday and would recommend the property.
