About Neil Longmuir

Mata and Neil bought this house in 2005 as this is the island where Mata grew up as a child and where her family and friends still live. As we live overseas now we want others to enjoy the beauty of Milos while staying in our very special house.

Neil Longmuir purchased this house in 2006

Why Neil Longmuir chose Greece

It's one of the only truly luxury houses to rent in Plaka with some of the best views.

What makes this house unique

You will love the peace and the views, a real escape from our busy lives.

Greece at it's Best!

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything I had always dreamed Greece to be! Breathtaking views, lovely village and the feeling of home made this holiday one which will always be remembered. Communication was great with the owners, who also left us with some welcoming gifts of wine, fruit and biscuits! Milos is amazing- but this gorgeous home in Plaka enhanced perfection: the kitchen was fully serviced, all amenities provided and the house was very clean and recently renovated. We loved Sterios's little artsy cafe at the bottom of the hill, which also hosted live Greek music on the weekends!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this place to everyone. We added 3 kids with us and it was manageable in terms of stairs and fences. The backyard was our dinner area to watch the sunset and stars in the sky. Neil is a good owner, who welcome us with tomatoes and watermelon. 2 min by foot from Plaka heart with restaurants and little shops.

Une maison merveilleuse, propre et bien décorée, idéalement située et parfaite pour une famille (nous étions 5).

Elle bénéficie en plus d'une vue extraordinaire.

Le propriétaire et sa famille, qui nous a accueillis, sont très disponibles et fort sympathiques.

Mata's House is in the lovely traditional island village of Plaka, one of the prettiest in the Aegean. It is a picture postcard with its traditional white washed houses, cobbled streets and stunning views of the Aegean. Quiet and peaceful day and night yet just a 200m stroll to the buzzy atmosphere of the village which at night comes alive. There are 5 restaurants, 4 bars and coffee shops, boutique shops, bakery and of course an ice cream shop. Plaka is perched on the side of the mountain with breath taking views of the sea, yet only a 5 minute car ride to the nearest beach. Milos is regarded by the Greeks as having the best beaches, more than 50 in total and very diverse.
