We cannot stress enough the importance of our environmental philosophy. We simply believe that the future of this land as well as humanity’s is intertwined. Sensitivity to this premise outlines a general philosophy that should be practiced by young and old alike.

Take a look Milia's history
“The  preservation of the circle of life in such a way that serves both humanity and the environment, having always at its core the Cretan tradition and cultural legacy. Realizing that any intervention in the environment would have its consequences, we are careful where we tread. Keeping tradition alive but at the same time never turning a blind eye to the present and future, we try to cultivate civilization in its simplest form. We deem it our responsibility in this day and age that our elders be allowed to remember and our youth me made to learn of how our ancestors lived and survived.”
