Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Southern Aegean

2 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom Sleeps 4

Our cycladic house is located on the seafront in the picturesque fishing village of Mandrakia, on the North Shore of Milos. From our veranda you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and have direct access to the sea.The house fits 4. It consists of two floors and has two bedrooms with double beds, a well equipped kitchen with a single bed, a bathroom, two balconies, two verandas, a stonebuilt barbecue. The fishing village of Mandrakia is dominated by its typical 'Sirmata', traditional shelters for the fishing boats, carved in the rocks and painted in bright colours. 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.

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 !

emplacement exceptionnel sur le plus bel endroit de l'île

  • 5 of 5

Merci encore à Christine pour sa générosité, gentillesse et disponibilité, toujours présente en cas de besoin et nous a bien aidée lorsqu'il a fallu un médecin pour notre fils souffrant d'une otite, elle a pris le temps de nous accompagner partout où il fallait et de faire l'intermédiaire. La maison est vraiment sur le plus bel endroit de l'île avec une vue panoramique ou la couleur de l'eau est exceptionnelle, on peut faire des balades longeant le bord de mer sur les roches de couleur blanches et jaune.... Ns avons passé une semaine idyllique et étions très triste de quitter ce petit paradis. Il nous tarde déjà d'y revenir
