About the property

Unique cave house on a small hill with 3 main rooms in the green countryside

“Aloni “ is a unique cave house hewn in the rock of a small hill in a land of 4000m2 which you will enjoy all by yourselves. Originally a farmhouse, it was recently renovated with the utmost respect to the original structure and the environment. Grasp the essence of country living here, marvel the sea (100 m) with stunning sunsets, find your perfect swimming sandy beach in a walking distance!

The house has a size of 100m2 with three independent entrance doors providing autonomy to each of its three main rooms allocated on a single storey with slight elevations. The MAIN BEDROOM (18 m2) has a queen bed built of stone and a private bathroom. The SALA (21 m2) consists of a big room with a double futon bed and a single, stone-built bed and a smaller area which is arranged as a fully functional, equipped KITCHENETTE. There is no private bathroom in Sala, but the outdoors WC is directly accessible and very close. Sala communicates with the master bedroom through a smaller room, the NEST (6 m2), with a single bed. KATOGAS, is an old cave four steps below the Sala. It serves as a sitting area (20 m2) or a bedroom with a bell shaped twin bed, a single, stone-built bed and a private bathroom. A rooftop fixed glass contributes bright sunlight in the room and its second door leads to the sea-garden.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The house has 3 main rooms (as above). If you wish to use one of the rooms as a sitting/dining area then max occupancy is 5 or 6 persons. If on the other hand you prefer to enjoy the outdoor sitting and dining areas, you may use the 3rd room as a bedroom as well and thus increase occupancy to 9 persons (please consult the precise GROUND PLAN published with our photos for a better view).

The SEA-GARDEN, planted with colorful shrubs and native cedar trees, is furnished with an original sitting area designed in the shape of a traditional threshing floor (Grk. Aloni). It is an ideal place to marvel at beautiful sunsets and the sea (100 m). At a convenient place close to the house we have formed a shaded patio with a big table for 8 persons which serves as a dining area. Close-by, there is a CampinGaz BBQ available to all our guests.

Built the traditional way, a few steps off the main entrance, the additional OUTDOORS WC with a shower, is accessible to our guests and it is ideal for a refreshing shower after the beach.

BREAKFAST is not included but throughout your stay we provide various local delicacies that will make your vacation more enjoyable (i.e. coffee, tea and cacao for beverage as well as various local products like barley rusks, cookies, jam, cheese, salad, fruits and other seasonal goodies)

About Corallia Drounga

I come from a family with deep routes on Milos, an island which I love most and therefore I visit very often throughout the year. I am also the editor of the guidebook “Best of Milos” an annual edition focused on presenting places worth seeing and experiences worth living on Milos from a sustainable point of view.

Having traveled all around the world, I renovated “Aloni” having in mind that the magic of a trip starts with staying at an inspiring place. I hope you will really enjoy it.

Corallia Drounga purchased this house in 1820

The region

Milos is an island of the western Cyclades famous for the classical statue of Venus (Aphrodite), its numerous startling beaches and unique rock formations. The area of Phylakopi is a fertile small valley at the north-eastern part of the island where various prehistoric cities repeatedly flourished between 3000 and 1000 BC.

Boat tours around Milos and the nearby islands is a big attraction you should not miss. Other fascinating activities include cave explorations with Sea kayak, Sailing, Diving, Windsurfing, Snorkeling, Water-sports, Geo Walks. If you love to combine your vacation with learning you might even try yoga courses, gastronomy lessons, wine tasting and more.

Many Local Events will make your holidays more enjoyable: Summer cultural festival or Local festivals with dancing, traditional food and wine tasting. Exceptional is the Summer bonfire festival on August 31st.

The area of Phylakopi

You will grasp the essence of country living. The area is peaceful with many cultivated fields and groves with very old trees while scattered around lie its few other houses. There are no facilities close by but in 2.5 km is the picturesque small port of Pollonia with top restaurants, coffee-shops, bakeries, super-markets and almost everything else you might need for your vacation. Bigger towns provide all the essentials. The main port is 9 km away.

Some of the nicest beaches of the island are close by. You may enjoy long walks around the area while if you have your own transportation means you may easily visit all interesting spots of Milos within 10-15 minutes.
