At 1985 I first rented the existing old house and started the work as a bar which I named 8 BEAUFORT. At 1987 I bought the land with the old house and afer renovation of it, I added another part of building at the bar at the ground level at 1994 and at 2002 I made the house on the first floor. Very soon at the end of 80's decade ,it became the best bar in Milos and well known all over Greece for its location ,the right and good service ,the clean alcohol at drinks and the whole unique atmosphere as well the feeling of an authentic bar from the first entry. But Except all these,the bar was well known and famous for the good and alternative music you could listen here(rock,jaz,ethnic,pop,electro etc),with DJ 'S who were playing from LP records and CD'S . All these LP records, CD'S were owned by me and I still own at about 4000 of them. The story of 8 BEAUFORT BAR lasted for 25 years since 2010 ,last year of beeing as a bar. The reason for that was because my first and the only son named Gregory came in my life at 2009. So the end of the bar 8 BEAUFORT at 2010 and the begining of the VILLA 8 BEAUFORT at 2011. Though the bar ended to work at 2010 ,the myth of the 8 BEAUFORT BAR still exists till today and many visitors are still coming to Milos for vacations and they are still looking or asking to find the bar 8 BEAUFORT . I loved and still love both of them(bar and villa) as beeing one, because here in this place I made dreams,friends ,I discussed with thousands of customers and here at the bar I met my wife Maria the mother of my son Gregory and because the place is a unique location ,quite and lovely place by any meaning(architectural,comfort, privacy,touch feeling) far away from any compare in the island. I hope you will feel the same from the first moment ,choosing the house for your vacations. Me ,my wife and my son will be waiting for you

Loved Our Stay
The house was perfect, even better than pictured. It was within walking distance to the little town that had quite a few restaurants, but far enough away to be quiet. Having the water at the bottom of the steps was a real treat, not to mention having that great view. We also found another beautiful beach/swimming area across the street and behind the house.
The owner of the property was very nice and helpful. Babis went above and beyond having the home prepared for us. The kitchen was stocked so that we had food for breakfast the first morning. And we definitely enjoyed the bottle of wine. Having beach towels for us to use was helpful, as well as a couple beach chairs.
I would highly recommend this property.
Beautiful villa with spectacular view
The villa is well located, an easy walk to the charming harbour of Pollonia. The view is breathtaking. Everything was perfect. A great location to explore the stunning island of Milos. Babis is a friendly, helpful and most hospitable host. We will definitely return again and stay at 8 Beaufort. Thanks Babis for a most enjoyable stay in Milos.
Excellence in Milos
I Have stayed in 10 or so apartments throughout Europe and this is far and away the best one. Why?
First the location. Four minute walk to a sandy beach eight minute walk to town. The town has everything you want and need. But the apartment itself is very very quiet. All you hear at night is the waves on the Aegean beach and the wind.
Second Babis and Maria are wonderful hosts. He met us at the port and they provided groceries the first night so we were set the next morning for breakfast and lunch.
Third everything in the apartment worked. When was the last time that happened?
Fourth the view from the apartment terrace was superb.
Last, the library had Ken Kesey and Jack Kerouac. Even if the beats are not your cup of tea you have to admit this is classier literature then you find in most places.
All in all it was a wonderful and relaxing stay.. Worth every penny.
Wonderful location and outstanding views
We loved our stay in Pollonia. Babis and Maria are perfect hosts and we could not of asked for anything more during our stay. The apartment has the most amazing view to the ocean and the bay of Pollonia, you can swim in the ocean directly from the apartment which we did daily to cool down and we all loved it. You can walk easily to the tavernas for lunch or dinner and we found all of them to be very good. Babis can give you a great list of suggested places, all of which we tried and can agree they all have great food at decent prices. Hire a care and drive around the island of Milos, grab a ferry to Kimolos and you will have a fantastic time. We will definitely come back.

Fabulous views! Wonderful stay.
Great apartment overlooking the bay - very private - good cooking facilities - wonderful terrace for relaxing and shaded for eating - easy stroll into town - Rifaki was our favourite restaurant, great food, lovely staff and less pretentious than a couple of others. We shall return and would not stay anywhere else than this apartment - it is not fancy but absolutely delivers. Babis and Maria were extremely helpful and approachable.
The property has everything you neeed to have a perfect stay on the island. Babis and his wife are very nice and they have help us with advices during our vacation
Our summer residence is located at the left edge of Pollonia village, 200m before the lighthouse in a very quiet and easy to reach area which is the most beautiful of the village and one of the best in the whole island of Milos. Pollonia is a small picturesque fishing village at the north side of the island, peaceful and quiet. Here are the best sea food restaurants and traditional taverns of the island. You can find gift shops, cafes, bakery stores, super market, rent a car services and a diving school. There is also playground for children, basketball and beach volleyball facilities. There is connection with the small island of Kimolos within 20min by ferry boat and excursions to certain beaches or places of the island by small boats. Between Kimolos and Pollonia there is a certain sea area for the survival and the protection of the 'monahus monahus'seal.
