Ecotourism, agrotourism, ecology, the ‘great outdoors’ and respect to humanity and its needs: simplicity, harmony, clean air, warm hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, home-cooking. This is what you will find in Milia, a small forgotten corner in Western Crete.
Milia is an authentic 17th century mountain settlement which has been transformed into and eco-friendly tourist complex; it seems to have sprouted from the lands of Crete. A glorious location boasting exceptional rugged beauty in the area of Kissamos. Placed among plane trees, chestnut trees, and mountain tops reaching the skies, the area overwhelms visitors with its unique diversity.

The philosophy of “back to basics” has found true meaning here. Milia is open all year round.
