Why Emmy and Theoni chose Nikiforos Fokas

Milios House is a residence that belongs to the family for over a century passing on from generation to generation in the heart of the peaceful village of Roustika. Roustika is a village that demonstrates the Venetian architecture in Crete. A walk in its peaceful and beautiful streets, a chat with the locals and a summer evening in the central square compose a perfect setting for a relaxing holiday.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The aesthetic of the house perfectly combining the traditional architecture with the modern carefully restored interior. The beautiful courtyards surrounding the building where you can enjoy a hearty breakfast in the morning and a glass of wine in the pleasant summer nights!The sounds and smells of nature! The felling of the village life if you wish to mingle with the locals who are always open to that but know how to keep a discrete distance as well if you prefer your privacy.

Milio's house

  • 5 of 5

Milio's house is a charming house located in a small and agradable village not very far from Rethymnon, Roustica. The description is accurate as regard to the location, the property was clean, and the owner provided good customer service. We already recommended this house to friends of us. The village is charming, and we recommend both the giorgios taverna and all the bars.

Car: recommended

Roustika, a traditional village with Byzantine monuments and picturesque taverns, is in an area of exceptional natural landscapes. The European path E4 crosses the village, with tracks that lend themselves to walking and mountaineering. There are other worth-visiting areas within a 20-km range: the gorge of Kotsifos, the Preveli delta, with its palm trees, the water sources of Argyroupolis and Kournas, the only lake in Crete.

Wonderful beaches unfold in the north, the long sandy beaches of Episkopi (12 km), of Georgioupolis (15 km), of Petres (17 km) and of the city of Rethymno (21 km). Southwards (18,5 km), stretch the beaches of Plakias, Triopetras and of the Preveli delta (25 km). Roustika is also in the vicinity of many villages of a particular architectural and historical interest (Venetian villages of Mountros, Aghios Konstantinos, etc). Rethymno with its Venetian fortress, its market and its rich cultural life, is connected daily to Roustika by the KTEL bus services (25').
