There are two little ports, a church and a taverna in the village

The nearest beach 'Tourkothalassa' is only a two minutes' walk from our house, the next villages Pera-Triovassalos and Triovassalos 1,3km. The famous beach of Sarakiniko, most photographed beach in the Aegean, is a five minutes ride by car.

Unmatched location/Immaculate home

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a small home on the water where we could get away from crowds of tourists and this exceeded our expectations. Milos is a great island to experience, very very hospitable people, gorgeous beaches, the clearest water and every restaurant just excellent. Christina's home is exactly as advertised and the taverna next door has wonderful food, fresh seafood and the waitstaff will deliver to your door! We sailed on our last day with Katerina Sailing (Booked a private, 2-person excursion for 5 hours) and it was equally as splendid. If I could give more stars in this review, I would. Well done!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

All the other reviews of Christine and her house are spot on. During the many months leading up to our visit to Milos, Christine was very helpful in answering any questions I had about the island and her property. She offerred to pick us up at the airport (we rented a car so didn't need the pickup). When we arrived at the house, she was there (with her Mom visiting from Germany) and quickly made us feel welcome as she showed us around the house. The house couldn't be in a more beautiful setting - steps from the Aegean (with its' own private sea-front patio with table and chairs), beautiful views from two upstairs balconies and the ground floor patio, very comfortable bed in the upstairs bedroom, everything very clean. Kitchen was nicely equipped (Christine had left us a welcome-basket filled with lots of goodies) but we didn't prepare any meals there as we happily sampled many of the island's restaurants (again, several excellent recommendations by Christine). Even though the Medousa taverna next door (excellent, by the way, we ate there twice) is open late into the night there was never any excessive noise. One evening while we were relaxing on the house's patio one of the friendly waiters brought over a plate of cheese pies Christine had ordered for us. A ferry strike stranded us for two extra days on MIlos (actually a nice surprise) and Christine was able to let us stay one of those nights in the house and recommended a very nice hotel in the village up the road from Mandrakia where she lives for the other night. As for Milos - what a fantastic island. Beautiful, unique and varied beaches, over 60 in all (I think we got to about a dozen of them). A couple of times we were the only people on the beach. No crowds like you'll find in Santorini. Several larger villages (the port, Adamas, Plaka, Pollonia, Trypiti) where you'll find most of the restaurants, shops, views, etc. and many tiny and extremely picturesque old fishing villages.

We got to spend five fantastic nights in Christine's house by the sea and if we ever get the chance to return we hope it's for more!

A very beautiful, authentic local

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful waterfront traditional property in a small former fishing hamlet. Since we were there very early in the season it was very quiet- just the neighboring small taverna owner re-painting his taverna and klima boathouse during the day. Gorgeous views to the north and a beautiful small church nearby with open door, wonderful iconostasis and votive candles burning. This is the heart of the real Greece and I would go again in a heart beat.

Christine was an amazingly accommodating and thoughtful host. She met us at a 10:45 pm ferry as if it was no imposition at all and she oriented us to the Port town, Adamas, and helped us find a rental car which we appreciated greatly and felt as if this was beyond what the normal call of duty. Her house is very respectfully restored in a true Cycladic tradition and has every modern convenience that one would expect in an up-to-date hotel but much more charm and spirit of place.

We would truly love to return for a longer stay. Thank you, Christine!

Excellent séjour dans un cadre fantastique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour formidable avec nos 3 enfants dans ce joli village de pêcheurs qui a su garder toute son authenticité.

La maison est très jolie et bien équipée et nous avons reçu un excellent accueil de la part de Christine sa propriétaire.

Une taverne typique est juste à côté ce qui est également bien pratique.

A recommander sans aucune hésitation !
