Paralia Milatou, Greece

You'll find us on the outskirts of the Milatos village, in Crete's Lassithi region (North-East): a magically serene location in-between mountain and sea, surrounded by olive groves. It is a place of peace, and custom-made for relaxing. Its location, Cycladic exterior architecture, living spaces and incredible sea views will steal your breath away... every single day! We speak French, Greek, and English
The 12 apartments are designed to host 2 to 3 people. Measuring approximately 28 m2, they have a living area with kitchenette, one bedroom and one bathroom - and let's not forget about the sea view balcony... For families or groups up to 6 people, we offer apartments that communicate with each other by a private patio. All apartments have a different style. You can choose the one you like the most when booking. Drawing from our long experience with upcycling, we have made most of the furniture ourselves, using bits and pieces from the old furniture, wood elements, etc. that we managed to salvage at the time of the hotel's renovation.
Right outside the hotel, discover our quaint little village. As with many Greek villages, Milatos is divided into two distinct locations: one of which is inland, surrounded by olive groves. Traditional and well-kept, it makes for a pleasant walk along peaceful streets brimming with flowers. The other, by the sea, is livelier thanks to its small fishing port and nearby tavernas. Here you can find a bakery, a mini market, a kafenio (traditional coffee shop) and several tavernas. There are many other places to discover, close to the hotel; Milatos caves, Selinari monastery, Sissi village, the Neapoli museum of local history of, Elounda bay with Spinalonga island a little further at 3/4 hour by car. You also have easy access walking to the beaches of Milatos.
  • Everything was perfect: the room, the pool, the cocktails, the dinners and the very good advice from Catherine and Alice.

  • Milatos, a seaside town where I accidentally booked too far from Heraklion. But I thought it was so good that I spent the day here. The sea is right in front of you! Enjoying breakfast with muffins baked by Aunt Eleni on the veranda overlooking the sea. In addition, Eleni's garden is full of touches and a small and neatly arranged room. The restaurant and the owners of the village were friendly as a family. At the restaurant in front of the house in Meltemi Taverna, the card reader in the restaurant broke down and I paid for it in dollars because I ran out of euros. Fresh seafood was also delicious. The guests and the owners gathered together to drink Raki and shout out Yamas and 'Wehaye', all of whom became friends. I enjoyed it. I remember saying goodbye to the old Finnish couple who was right next door. Kind Eleni, thank you Raki for gifts. I'll keep the beautiful memories for a long time in Milatos. I love you ♡

  • Lovely apartment in Milatos! And great hospitality from Eleni! We had a great and relaxing time here. The town is very quiet and friendly, ideal to get away for a couple of days and enjoy the sea and great food. The apartment is just as described, perfect for couples. It’s right next to sea. Eleni is super friendly and made our stay there very comfortable. We recommend it!

Many thanks to the owner for the crib for a child, very comfortable! You can walk to a small sandy beach, you can go down the stairs to the sea directly from the promenade and plunge. Nearby are several taverns with friendly staff. There are no problems with hot water, excellent pressure! There is air conditioning, but we had enough open windows. Thanks for the hospitality!

SPINALONGA - PLAKA - ELOUNDA Spinalonga is a small island near Elounda in East Crete. It is also known as the Leper Island, as lepers from Crete and the rest of Greece were quarantined there until 1957. Spinalonga is the most visited archaeological site in Crete after Knossos. The strategic position of the rocky islet for the control and defense of Elounda harbour has marked it with a turbulent history of fierce battles and much human suffering. ELOUNDA is located in east Crete, north of Agios Nikolaos and south of the seaside resort of Plaka. Elounda was once a picturesque fishing village in the lovely Mirabello Bay. In the hills around Elounda there exists a mineral unique to Greece, called “akonopetra” or whetstone, a type of fine emery used to make whetstones and emery paper to hone tools. Once discovered by tourism, Elounda developed into a resort famous for its beautiful scenery and the luxury hotels which are still being built in the area. It is said to be the place with the most five-star hotels in Greece. all over the world. This is also part of its magic, as many people dream of spreading their towel on the beaches of Elounda, where some famous person has been swimming. KROUSTAS Kroustas is a small village close to Agios Nikolaos on the island of Crete, Greece. Kroustas is known for its magnificent view of Mirabello Bay. It is also known for its traditional cuisine including myzithropites (special cheese pies), ftazymo bread and aiga vrasti (boiled goat). In the past people of Kroustas were shepherds and land workers. However, nowadays, following the booming of the tourist industry in east Crete, most of the village people work in the nearby resorts of Agios Nikolaos and Elounda. Characteristic of Kroustas is the smell of Raki distillery in October, the dry but cool summers, the dry and rocky landscape and the old ladies with the black scarfs and the wrinkled faces. What could you buy from Kroustas? Pure food like honey, almonds, walnuts, myzithra (soft sour cheese) and raki (locally distilled spirit). KROUSTAS FOREST HISTORICAL LANDSCAPE PARK One of the rare forests of eastern Crete was first systematically settled and intensively used by man about four thousand years ago. In the older Minoan Palace period (ca. (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) BCE) many agricultural installations (pens, enclosure walls) and house foundations were built with large blocks and are visible on the surface until today. The park offers marked paths through the forest along which many of the - unexcavated so far- Bronze Age ruins can be visited. KRITSA An alive village of Crete just at 9 km. from Agios Nikolaos. Kritsa first became inhabited in Minoan times, and its inhabitants are considered direct descendants of the ancient Cretan city Lato. During the Middle Ages and until the more recent times, Kritsa was the biggest village of Crete, with its 40 churches, extended on the entire south-west coast of Mirabello gulf until the plateau of Dikti. PANAGIA KERA 8km from Αghios Nikolaos and 1km from Kritsa, is found the tripartite Byzantine church of Panagia Kera. One of the most ancient churches in Crete, dedicated to Virgin Mary, Saint Anna and Saint Antonios. The church celebrates on August 15. KRITSA - KATHARO PLATEAU 16 km from Kritsa and 25km from Aghios Nikolaos, you will find the plateau of Katharo at 1200m on the foot of Lazaros. Katharo is fertile territory and holds shady Holm oaks, a wellknown target for Greeks and foreign climbers and nature lovers. Gorge of Kritsa The gorge of Kritsa begins at the north-eastern exit of the historical village of Kritsa and ends up at a flat area 2,5 kilometres to the north. Continuing in the watercourse from this point, one arrives at the entrance to the second section of the gorge, which is a lot more difficult. After a tiring climb, it leads to the foot of the Tsivi peak, over Katharo plateau. .................................................... PS: The municipality of Agios Nikolaos has the largest number of awarded beaches in Greece! HOUMERIAKO - FOURNI - KARIDI - MONASTERY ARETI - PLAKA - ELOUNDA Houmeriako is eastwards from Neapoli in the valley of Mirabello and is spread onto 3 small hills. In the old days, it constituted the seat of the Municipality. It is one of the oldest villages in the area. On this land many interesting churches are preserved: Agios Panteleimon, Agia Triada, Agios Georgios, Agios Kirikos and Agios Antonios. The "Romana Portella"(Roman Gate) that used to be the residence of some unknown sovereign, is an important monument. Nikithiano is a settlement next to Houmeriako, at 2 km from Neapolis. Small and picturesque, this settlement is known for its windmills; 15 windmills in a straight line. We reach the next village, Fourni, by going upward the slope. Fourni is constituted of 3 villages, Kastelli, Pano Horio and Kato Horio. The famous "School of Kerapolitissas" functioning in the past as the center for intellectuals. Hardly one kilometre from Kato Horio is another settlement, “Doriees” reporting to the Hellenic nation of Dories. In the next settlement of “Karidi” visitors could see the church of “Timios Stavros” (Holy Cross), the ruins of “Kardamoutsa” an old monastery as well as the Byzantine church of “Agii Apostoli” which has been qualified as archaeological because of its impressive murals. At the end of the way we discover the historical abbey of "Areti”, dedicated to Saint Trinity and situated in the middle of a stony and arid valley planted with some olive trees, cypresses and almond-trees. The Abbey was built during the Venetian period and has reached a big prosperity. It was the Seat of Bishops during the Ottoman domination. Today is completely restored and constitutes a unique attraction. VOULISMENI - FRARO – LATSIDA A very nice walk for any visitor is the distance between Neapolis and the settlements of Fraro, Voulismeni and Latsida. In the mid way between Voulismeni and Neapoli, the settlement of Fraro is planted all over with trees and vineyards. It was first appreciated in the 13th century by the Franciscan monks who were looking for a suitable place to built their Catholic church. Voulismeni maintained its noble character for centuries and is up until today considered as one of the most beautiful and tidy villages. At the west side of the village there is the church of Agia Ekaterini of the Venetian period with exceptional sculpted icons. Four hundred meters from the village at the foot of the mountain Kavalara you will find the Byzantine Church of the "Virgin Mary- the Vigliotissa", an old church destroyed by the Ottomans. Some ruins of the old cells are still saved and under the ruins there is a water spring. Latsida, a small traditional and picturesque village, is at one kilometer westwards from Voulismeni. VRAHASSI - SISSI - MILATOS Seven kilometres from Neapoli is the settlement of Vrahassi spread out on the rocky slopes of Anavlohos. Vrachasi is a village of a few hundred people and typical of many around, but it has some interesting features and the traditional Cretan architecture is well preserved here. The main square of Vrachasi sits close to the road and has an excellent view into the valley below, through which passes the main highway between Agios Nikolaos and Heraklion. Milatos Village is a picturesque community about a kilometer before the coastal Milatos settlement. Many Europeans have bought old village homes here, and refurbished them in the original style. Armed with a camera, a walk through the narrow village streets will provide you with many wonderful snap-shot memories of your holiday. Milatos Cave Lace up your sneakers and grab a flashlight and a bottle of water, and off you go to explore this very interesting site. Archaeological findings indicate that human activities in the cave date back to the Neolithic period. KOUROUNES - FRATHIA Kourounes (carrion crows) is in the middle region of northern Mirabello, in a distance of 4 km from Neapolis. Going north we reach the settlement of Frathia first and then the settlement of Perambela. Other smaller settlements next to Perambela, in a different and surprising landscape, are Petros, Peronides, Nofalias, Dilakkos, Adravatos, Romanos, Amigdalias, Souvlos and Finokalias. THE ANCIENT CITY OF DRIROS The first archaeological findings of this ancient city were discovered at the North-west side of Neapolis. Driros was completely unknown until 1855 when the plough of two farmers revealed the stone signboard with the oath of adolescents of Driros. This important finding was transported by the Turkish authorities to Heraklion and later to Istanbul. It’s an important archaeological site! AGOROI - KOUNALI - TSAMBI - AGIOS ANTONIOS - ANOGIA At the north side of Neapolis there is a road leading to small villages and settlements reaching down to the Cretan Sea. The visitor can access these villages from Milatos too. The first settlements are Kounali and Tsambi and then the small village of Agios Antonios. A bit further to the north we come upon the settlement of Anogia built on the slope of the mountain and not far from the sea. It’s a place known for its clean atmosphere. At the end of our way we face the splendid and unique view of the Cretan Sea and we can swim in the clear-crystal waters of this completely isolated beach. The Plane Tree of Krassi In the village square of Krasi, near Malia, there are three plane trees, trademarks of the village. The most important of them is the platan in the center of the square, which is considered to be the oldest and most majestic of the plane trees in Crete. The perimeter of the trunk is about 24 meters and its age is estimated at 2400 years, as it is said that each meter of the perimeter represents 100 years of growth. It is bulky, has huge branches and dense foliage covering the entire square. Next to the tree there are two springs that have crystal clear water throughout the year. The plane tree over its long history has witnessed countless events. It was the center of the social and intellectual life of the area. It is known that Nikos Kazantzakis, the most famous Greek writer, spent several summers of the decade with his friends in Krasi, the birthplace of his wife Galatia Alexiou. The olive tree of Azorias he legendary olive tree in Azorias is located 1km south of the village Kavoussi and very close to the homonymous archaeological site of Azorias. This olive tree is a natural monument; it is the oldest olive tree in the world! Indeed, it is grafted on a rootstock of a wild olive tree, making it the oldest sample of grafting in the world. The olive tree has been declared by the Association of Cretan Olive Municipalities as a natural monument because of the large size of its trunk and because of its location near three ancient settlements: Vrondas, Kastro and Azorias, where several artifacts related to olive oil have been uncovered. The tree is located on the site of Azorias, on the road leading to the settlement Avgos. It belonged in 2008 to George Grammatikakis and it is a tree of Olea europea, of the variety Mastoeidis, locally named "mouratoelia". Dicteon cave (continue) *Reading most tourist guides about the area, you are sure to see it described as a plateau of 10,000 windmills. There are also some old black and white photos showing thousands of windmills scattered throughout the area. Unfortunately, most of these windmills, with crude pumping engines and iron towers of simple technology, no longer exist. Originally, the locally-constructed windmills made their appearance in the valley at the end of the 1800s. During the 1950s there were about 4,000 of the structures offering invaluable assistance to local farmers. Today, with more modern means of irrigation and power supply, that number has been greatly reduced, depriving Lassithi of its unique identity. windmills in Lassithi plateau.However, there is much renewed interest in the restoration of the windmills, which would bring back the picture of the Lassithi Plateau as it once was. Exiting the Lassithi Plateau and heading towards Heraklion, there's an area just before the village of Kera where 24 stone flour mills dating back to the 1800s once stood. They operated until the end of WWII, but today most are in various stages of ruin, with only three restored so far. Just beyond this area is the Kera Monastery, famous for its beautiful frescoes. Anyway, they're both worth a look-see if you have the time. DICTEON CAVE The Dikteon Cave (or Dikteon Andron or Dictaean Cave) is one of the most important and famous of the 3,000 caves in Crete and the 8,500 in Greece. It is in the impressive Dikteon Cave, rich in stalagmites and stalactites, that Zeus was born according to legend. This is why the Dikteon Cave was already famous in antiquity, dedicated to the worship of the greatest of the gods, as the many offerings found there indicate. In our days the Dikteon Cave continues to receive many visitors, no longer worshippers, of course, but travellers from all over the world. SUMMER IN CRETE: During the summer months there are a lot of festivals concerning local monasteries, ancient temples and local products. For example the Eftazimo (traditional bread) festival in Kroustas, the Afentis Christ festival in Voulismeni (6 August) and celebrations for Mother Mary in August, in Neapoli (15 August). EASTER IN CRETE: Easter is possibly the best experience you can have on Crete! Check Easter in Agios Nikolaos You can celebrate with the locals in Agios Nikolaos. The faithful start gathering round the lake at 11 p.m. on Easter Saturday in order to get the best viewing positions. The priests come to the lake from a nearby church around 11:30 and the service of the Resurrection is held on a special platform. The atmosphere is magic! At midnight the chant “Christos Anesti” (Christ is Risen) is heard, and night turns to day as hundreds of fireworks are let off. At the same time the effigy of Judas, hanging on a raft in the middle of the lake, is set aflame. SPRING IN CRETE: Springtime is a perfect season for walking and you will find botanic beauties nowhere else to be found. You will enjoy the most attractive face of Crete, and it will offer you a carpet of flowers, high mountains capped with snow and villages that shows you daily life with all its social aspects. Snow falls in the mountain villages and the White Mountains are usually snow-covered from November to April. WINTER IN CRETE: Many visitors to Crete think that the island is only for summer holidays. But Crete is a perfect winter destination. By winter (November until late March). The island lies in the subtropical part of the Mediterranean and offers mild winters with many sunny days with pleasant temperatures. Mid October to Xmas is possibly the best time of year in the Southeast with consistently calm and sunny days. The locals are "more alive" than in the summer, since there is lots of work to do in the olive groves, fruit gardens and buildings. The sheep graze the fresh green from the mountains. When coming to meet Cretan friendship there's no better season than the winter. Touring around with a car, walking the country side, biking, bird watching or just strolling through the cities will offer you a relaxed holiday. In December and January, you can join the olive harvesting and follow the entire oil production from harvest to oil. I can inform you and arrange local activities depending on the period! September: Collection of vegetables October: Planting garden, Preparation of grapes November: Distillation of raki (traditional drink made of grapes) December: Olive oil collection January: Olive oil collection February: Fruits and wild herbs collection
  • Wonderful location for exploring this region of Crete whether you like beaches, archeology, hiking or simply drinking in the scenery and Traditional Cretan villages. The house is an integral part of the experience. Lovely!

  • Manolis is an excellent host. He goes above and beyond to take care of his guests. I stayed in two of his stays and he was kind enough to taxi me from one to the other. The 1870 traditional home was a taste of true village life. As a full time traveler I’m very fond of walking and always take busses (the bus stop is very close) but if you are disabled or have trouble walking this may not be right for you. I’ll be back though to wonderful Crete!

    Adriana2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay there. Check-In was really great, even with a tour through the area to show the important locations (super market, post, market, taverns etc.). Manolis was always friendly and very fast in answering all of our questions. The house was really beautiful and cosy. It was restored with lots of love for details. We are happy to recommend this beautiful location.

    Chris2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis is a nice host with great tips for creta. We had a wonderful time at his house

    Vanessa2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you are fond of wood and stone houses, then you are going to fall in love with this mezzanine, so much better than the photos provided. It is absolutely beautiful, functioning and bright with incredible view to the mountains. It is lovely and according to tradition decorated and built. It has a nice little yard, full of herbs and a pomegranate tree. It is located 10-15 minutes’ walk from the village of Neapoli. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. The only sounds one can hear are the ones from cicadas, birds and sheep. A real relaxation paradise! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need in order to prepare your meals. The bathroom is so wonderfully pretty. The internet connection is great and reliable. It has a lot of light fixtures too. Manolis and his family are very hospitable, helpful, friendly and welcoming. I have 100% enjoyed my stay there and I definitely recommend this house!

  • Secluded and in a great position overlooking the village with a great view of the mountains. Very rustic and perfect for a relaxing stay. Did not see anyone walk past the house. Nice, stone front terrace with lots of plants and a pomegranate tree.

    Stephen2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house is wonderfully restored and well furnished! Perfect for 2 people. Strategically well located: away from tourism, in about 20-30 minutes you are on the most beautiful beaches around Agios Nikolaos. Manolis had all kinds of information on cultural and culinary questions ready for us. All in all a nice experience. We'll be back for sure.

    One bed apartment in old stone built house. Lovely terrace with fantastic views . Away from crowds but close to all amenities, beaches, archaeological sites, shops and restaurants. A chilled out location in a friendly Greek village. The apartment doesn’t have parking outside but there is a lay-by 5 minutes walk away and we are on hand to transport you plus luggage to and from your car. * Please note, there is minimum booking of 4 days *
    Bedroom with a/c, large wardrobe and drawers. Hairdryer. Bed linen and towels. Shower room with complimentary shampoo, conditioner. and shower gel . Kitchen with fridge freezer, convection microwave and 2 ring electric hob. DVD player with DVD's (ask us and we have lots more) NO CABLE TV. Books.

    We love the friendliness of the people in the village, easy access to mountain hikes and the dozens of nearby attractions such as archaeological sites, beaches and interesting villages. The village is right on the highway and only 45 minutes from Heraklion airport. Very easy access to the west and east. The nearest shop is Elenis, 50 seconds walk away and she has fresh bread every day. There is a traditional tavern that is more like someone's house and they love visitors. Neapoli, a large, beautiful city is 5 minutes by car or a 20 minute walk and has cafes, supermarkets, shops, banks, pharmacies and a hospital.
  • House in a local village with two extraordinary hosts! They are very caring and do not hesitate to discuss to give advice or just know how the day went. The village is very well located between Heraklion and Agios Nickolaos, close to the expressway that leads to tourist sites and far from tourists. I do not hesitate to advise!

    Clémence2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in a lovely Cretan village in the heart of the local people's life. The accommodation is just exceptional, lots of character, very well equipped and big. Perfect for a romantic stay! We took advantage of the large patio overlooking the village and the mountains, and the rooftop where you can admire the beautiful Cretan starry sky! There is a wind that blows constantly and is well appreciated given the heat of the place in summer! The accommodation is just minutes from Neapoli where you will find everything you need. The distances to the beaches and other activities are perfect as we enjoyed being away from the big centers and the heat. Jeannine provides bicycles to explore the area, and will advise you with kindness on local activities or restaurants. Gary and Jeannine were exceptional hosts, very attentive and friendly. What more to say than anything was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend it to live the Cretan experience in an authentic way!

  • Highly recommend!) Very hospitable hosts! the best apartment in Milatos ever. Perfect for children. Huge balcony, beautiful and comfortable apartment.

    George2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • George and Tonia were lovely. Responsive to messages and provided easy instructions to find the place. Also left us several goodies in the apartment like fresh eggs from their very own chickens as well as their own wine, raki and olive oil. I'll briefly mention the downsides before going for the good parts. The beach of the village itself is not anything noteworthy given the quality of beaches in Crete. And there is a rooster and couple of dogs in the neighbourhood that sometimes can be annoying. Now for the good parts. The apartment itself is a gem! Huge balcony where you can work or chill at all hours. The distance from the sea is just right. Close enough so you can always hear the waves and feel the breeze but far enough so you don't have to suffer from the humidity. We all slept like babies every-single-night. The spaces are quite large, enough to accommodate a family. There is a fireplace, though we didn't use it. It was sparkling clean and came with all the amenities: from stable wifi, to coffee pads and coffee maker, pots and pans and a normal fridge just to name a few. The family of the hosts also exceptionally friendly and hospitable. George's mother gave us eggs on a following day, tomatoes and cucumbers from her very own garden (taste beyond words) and brought us freshly baked cookies (divine). All in all, highly recommended if you are looking for a chill, relaxed, no-thrills stay. Would visit again.

  • The house has everything you need yourself more. The large terrace with a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains, nice fresh wind, that was my favorite place. The house is neat and clean. We were kindly received by George. Although we arrived late, he was waiting for us with tasty food. He was always ready to answer all our questions. We also regularly receive fresh vegetables and eggs from their garden. The village is small but has beautiful beach at the harbor where is also very suitable for the children. It is enough tavernas where you can get really tasty local food. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax it is the best choice.

  • This country home was wonderful for our family of 4 (two teenage kids) - spacious, clean, well-equipped and a wonderful location, immersed in the hills of Crete with fantastic views. Evaggelia and Jannis are such warm and friendly people, and left us feeling very welcome when they met us at the home to show us around. Communications were always clear and prompt, the home looks exactly as pictured and is truly a nice place to stay, relax and visit eastern Crete.

  • A 'Feel Good' location

    J2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay! Great location in the hills with a beautiful view over the valley. Our hosts welcomed us with a basket filled with local food... amazing. Best Tsikoudhia I ever had :) And in case you didn't prepare yourself there's a pile of flyers and books on local excursions and sights to see.

    Niko2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in the house of Evaggelia, which is very nice, well equipped, with a nice garden. It is an ideal place to stay to discover the north coast of Crete and Lassithi. Evaggelia and her husband are particularly attentive and attentive hosts. I recommend this address without hesitation! Sylvie

    Sylvie2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • A very clean house, large, a large garden, many terraces, sufficient equipment .... in short a real Airbnb and not a house dedicated to the only rental. Eva and Janis are lovely hosts, very responsive, and full of little touches when we arrived. In short, we recommend their home without worry

    Sylvie2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two wonderful weeks in Eva's house. Her husband us they were real superhosts. We were welcomed with fresh fruit and other delicacies. The house is in the mountains - the nearest beaches are about 10 minutes away by car. No long trips. We will be back!

    Arne2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was one of my best vacation stays via Airbnb! The villa, the territory- all is much better that on the photos. The house is spacious and big with marvelous views from the balcony and the terrace of the surroundig mountains with goats ringing their bells. Two bedrooms with good mattresses (1 double bed, 1 single bed), good pillows and hotel-type linen. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary cooking supplies and even more. All is very clean an tidy. If you dont want to go out to the sea, you can relax and get suntanned on the territory at a cozy corner with sun shade and lounger. Eva's welcome was very warm and made us feel like home from the very first minute. She greeted us with Greek wine and other Greek food compliments including a homemade jam and baking. You can get to the closest village or beach 10 minutes by car. However the nearby beaches are small and narrow. I would recommend the beach in the area of Potamos and Malia Palace. And it takes about 30-35 minutes by car to get to the Plateau Lassithi which is also worth visiting. We enjoed our stay a lot and I definitely recommend Eva's and Yannis' villa to everyone who is deciding to visit the eastern part of Crete.

    Katya2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • the friendliness and hospitality of this couple have been exceptional, we have been using RBNB for a long time and it is our best experience. Eva treated us as if we were family. In addition the accommodation is very functional, the location is a real dream a 360 degree view of the mountains. Beautiful beaches around small typical restaurants and cheap. Ideal place to visit East Crete. Thanks again to this lovely couple. Do not hesitate to choose this villa, you will be delighted.

    Σίσι, Greece

    In a pure and quiet coast of Crete, we have The Old Bus-residence and its Art Studio, next to the sea, overlooking the horizon from sunrise to sunset. Suitable for artists and those who looking for peace of mind and an alternative lifestyle. For travelers who are looking for something magical, who want to connect to themselves and the land, this IS the place! As there is really nothing around but nature, sea and sky, it really offers a space to simply 'be', watch the stars, be quiet and connect
    The Bus is in northern coastline of Crete, just an hour and ten minutes drive from the Heraklion Airport. Once over the mountains the winding road leads you to down to secluded beaches, clear waters, stunning views and the welcoming smiles of Dora and Giorgo. In the year 2000 we met this old bus, (Mercedes from '60) it was abandoned in a paddock. We decided to bring it down to this untouched coast. We pulled the bus along the narrow winding road with a bulldozer which lifts the bus to take the turns, it was an adventure... It was being done our "Magic Bus" for our dreamland... We worked a lot to transform it into a home. For years it was our retreat from the competitive world. The Old Bus, this land, the sky, the sea and the infinite was our "door" to escape from the "peoplemade" reality... Now we are here to serve this land, and the Bus for hosting people who are attracted by the power of the Old Bus coast. Our bus feels so happy to transport people in magic "Away with the fairies"... Is blessing: -To live on a peaceful coast, in the middle of nature, and have the opportunity to disconnect from the logic of the world we created and connect to nature... -To have the possibility to be in 38 minutes to the civilization. -To have the opportunity to live by the sea on a coast in northern Crete and be away from tourist development -Safe in your Bus - home, in an area without electricity supply network, to watch the most bright starry sky, the sunset... "trip to the endless horizon" We hope always to find the way to live here, so you can have the opportunity of this experience... You can find The Old Bus in Google map if you write in your search: The Old Bus Anogia 72400. In this place we live and create in recent years, we live here all year long, we learn to exist without the comforts of an organized society. We are the only, permanent residents in the area. The bus is a piece of art work, the space is big, clean and bright. (The photos of our presentation are from summer 2019. In this period we renovate the Old Bus, we give a more fairy tale image and more carefully planned outdoor space, with new furniture in Old Bus Design. Once finished with the works on the Bus and outdoor space, we will upload the new photos...) Connected (with internal entrance) is an elevated room - studio, which looks over the sea, which can be used for yoga, dance, writing etc. and of course for Art workshop, with panoramic views for inspired creations. It is equipped for small construction and painting. This studio has also its own entrance - exit. In this studio, you can observe the starry night sky, all over around (there is no electric lighting in the whole area, only the cities lights far far away on the coastline). Also at night you can create a very romantic atmosphere with the "Fairy's lights" that adorn this room. Up to 4 people can be accommodated in The Old Bus and in the studio. In The Old Bus there is one double and one single bed and in studio there is a bed (200x90cm) that is also used as a sofa. These spaces are intended exclusively for guests. There is no electricity supply network in the area. To cover your needs, we have power supply with solar panels (photovoltaic). There is wifi internet, but the signal isn't good. We are away from the noise, near the peace of nature. Without daily oppression, away from competition, you perceive reality with another view that works more harmoniously with our existence. It will be a great pleasure for us to share this life experience with people who looking for the peace of mind, adventure in nature and like to travel to the endless horizon. If your occupation is artistic actions or intellectual activity, you work with groups and you are interested to present your work in our area, you can contact with us, we are open to such experiences.
    Here, there are no shops and markets, only nature and vastness. The closest purchase for your supplies is Neapoli at 17 km, the road from Neapoli to The Old Bus is narrow with turns and it's about 38 minutes driving. There are small parts in the road with cement and 1,5 - 2 Km, at the end of the road, is dirt road. The place is wild and pure, with clear sea. The beach has stones and rocks. There is a small bay just below the bus which has very easy access to swimming. Also a short walk, on the road, has a pebble bay! And with little climbing you will find a unique bay, for a deserted swimming! You can find this point in Google map with the name "Anogeia beach 72400" With great pleasure we will show you this land, walking!!! A little further of the Bus (5 minutes walking), on the wildest coast, at the east, there is a beautiful gorge. If you love to walk on rough terrain it is a very interesting route, through the gorge, that reaches out to metochi (small village) Peronides. There's a legend, from the old people who lived in around area, that the gorge was inhabited by elves. In the part of the gorge near us, there are two interesting caves, and here you can see some vultures flying in the sky. They have their nests in the mountains around. You can find this gorge in Google map with the name "Faragi Malliari Anogia 72400" At the end of the gorge, over imposing rocks, an amazing and powerful seaside viewpoint. You will find this point in Google map with the name "Timotine beach Anogia 72400" In 2 km. 26 minutes walking to the east of the Bus there is more wild nature, you can find a church there. You can find this spot in Google map with the name "Church Agios Nikolaos Anogia 72400" This part of the coastline is wilder without houses or other buildings, except the old church. The dirt road stops at the church, but we can walk on paths along the coast and discover the wildest face of Crete's coastline... The landscape, a canvas of sky and sea... And The Creator... a Painter, who paints! ... You can enjoy the sunset in the sea horizon during the summer months, in the ending of spring and beginning of autumn. The sun rises from the sea from late May till mid July. In autumn the weather usually is calm and you can swim up to November. For those who enjoy the cool sea they can swim in the winter if it's not so cold. We know this from experience. If you want to visit tourist places there is Milatos beach to 14 km, 30 minutes. Between the Old Bus - Milatos beach route, you will find Milatos Cave. It is a big cave, with a church in it, and has history from the years of Turkish rule Also, closer, you can find picturesque small metochia (very small villages), Kounali is 8 km, 17 minutes and there is a tavern there. You need to have car for this.
  • We spend 2 very good day in the Bus and in the wildness around the Bus. Dora shows us the Places near the Bus and we had a good time with her and the Husband.

    Daniele2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for seclusion from the world, you’ve found it. This is a fantastic retreat, especially for artists and other creative types, as the host was more than happy to open her studio for our use. Anyone booking this should expect it to be more akin to a campsite rather than an apartment, though you will be sleeping and living in an indoor space. The beaches are rocky, though uninhabited. There is no light pollution from nearby neighbors or cities, so the stargazing is unbelievable. The hosts were incredibly accommodating, driving us to and from the closest bus stop in Neapoli, and giving us time to shop for groceries for our stay. Dora was more than happy to guide us to the remote beaches. Would love to stay again!

    Karina2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I are world travelers and the bus is one of the most magical places we have stayed. We are even considering cancelling the rest of out trip in Crete and just staying on the bus. Dora and Giorgo are sincere, friendly and perfect hosts. The bus is a dream! Clean, big and so comfortable with everything you need. The views over the sea, mountains and sunset are spectacular. There is a little art studio attached to the bus I used for yoga, a kitchen with everything you need to cook and a shower. My husband, baby and me loved swimming in the crystal clear waters just a stone throw from the bus. The peace and quiet nights were incredible. We will certainly be back, I would recommend this space for people who love yoga, who wish to do art, as a writing retreat or simply a break from a hectic pace of life. We will see you soon Dora and Giorgo!

    Amber2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Meeting Dora and Giorgos and visiting there little paradise by the sea has been my highlight by far. Giorgos collected me from the main town and brought me back to their beautiful paradise just in time for sunset. The old bus is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need to make your stay super comfy... I slept like a baby every night to the sound of the ocean and the views from my bed were out of this world. During the day I spent time by the ocean relaxing on the rocks and swimming in the crystal blue sea... On the first night Dora and Giorgos took me for an amazing walk along the coast to watch the full moon rise above the mountain tops... and on the second day Dora took me for a walk along the cliffs of the coast line to a beautiful hidden bay. Dora and Giorgos are both incredible heart centred artists who love to share their passion with others... Dora actually hosts artist workshops there upon request... which is a beautiful added touch... I love this place so much I’ve decided to head back there again in a couple of days to experience more of this precious land and also Dora’s art workshop. You can really tell they care about what they do here... this isn’t about business for them this is about them sharing there way of life with others. I highly recommend this place if you are feeling to take some time out to fully immerse yourself in nature and just be... Great location to also pursue some of those creative projects that have been waiting to happen Thanks Dora and Giorgos for being such beautiful human beings and for making me feel so comfortable and welcome Looking forward to seeing you again soon. With love Kate 💖💖

    Kate2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing amazing amazing!!! First of all, the place is heaven on earth. Waking up and going to sleep with the sound of waves from the sea, with the most amazing sunsets and sunrises. Perfect spot for disconnecting and appreciating the beauty of nature. Dora and Giorgos were amazingly kind, offering us many tips and at the same time privacy. We will return for sure, had a perfect experience.

    Esther2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • it is a place "end of the world" ... there is nobody ... and it feels good! it's very much in line with Dora's description and photos. The bus is nickel internally, the bedding is very comfortable and the parquet floors very soft under the feet ...! Personally I arrived at night ... and it was not a good idea ... I suspected it .... and I especially missed the sunset ... the "road" is a bit long and bumpy but frankly it's worth it !! And what a show (through the windshield) when waking up ... this sunrise !! The bus of Dora and Giogos, is "deserved a little" ... but go there! it's an extraordinary experience for an adorable couple. thanks to them! I will surely come back!

    Catherine2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation in an exceptional location. The hostess was really super friendly and helpful. It was by far the nicest of our accommodations, can only be recommended!

    Merlina2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place is magical! The hosts are very kind and Dora showed us some secret places and bays near the bus. Everything is super clean and cozy.

    Françoise Et Alain2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We were very warmly welcomed on arrival by the host and her partner who were both very kind and helpful. They even arranged a buggy for us to use during our stay for our two year old son. The house and especially the terrace were even nicer than in the pictures. The house provided for anything we needed and is quite spacious and lovely decorated. Several beaches can be reached within a 15-20 minute footwalk. We enjoyed our three weeks stay very much.

    Robert2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house, well located in a very quiet area, in all respects to the description. Pleased with our stay at Angelo and Marina who greeted us with a lot of attention despite our delay. The rooms were spacious, the terrace very beautiful and the house very well equipped (bedding of very good quality). In short, we highly recommend this house!

    Jacques2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Marina and Angelo for their welcome who received us at 9pm with a homemade Raki and toasts. The house is spacious and well equipped, necessary kitchen, washing machine, deckchair and umbrella for the beach which is not far on foot. The house is in a quiet area with a private location for the car. We are a couple with 3 children and we recommend this place.

    Bruno2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are amazing, they waited for us late at night to arrive and were so welcoming and friendly. The apartment is wonderful, spotlessly clean and with a lot of thoughtful touches. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms nice and big. Plenty of space outside for a bbq and sun loungers. We know Sissi very well and it is in a lovely part of the village with super restaurants a short walk away. All in all a wonderful week away, thank you

    Alison2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious house, very clean and with a beautiful garden. There is everything you need, including a washing machine and a dishwasher. The house lies very close to at least two good taverns and literally ten minutes on foot from a nice beach (with a rocky bottom). Angelos and Marina were super kind and even offered us wine and pastries from Crete. A great house to spend a few days in Sisi.

    Deborah2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice welcome from Marina and Angelo. We prepared Cretan specialties and a bottle of wine and all that despite our late arrival at night. The house is clean and welcoming, in a quiet area while being close to the lively center I recommend Marina for a good stay in Crete!

    Sissi is set away from the main road in a veritable sea of olive trees. The village has cafeterias, bars, restaurants, and many shops but the quiet atmosphere has remained. In the country side, 2km from center of the village and 700 m from archeological place of Minoan king Sarpidon located the one bedroom apartment, is part of a stone house with separate entrance surrounding of olive trees ideal for relaxation with a mountain and village view only 700m from the 2 sandy beaches
  • We had an enjoyable and relaxing week. Zacharenia and Manos were responsive and efficient if we needed any assistance. The apartment was very comfortable, clean, secure, well laid out with excellent outside space and catered perfectly to our requirements. We alternated going out in the evenings and cooking our own meals which the apartment is ideal for. Highly recommended and would certainly stay again if we return to the area.

    Steven2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Ideal for relaxation. Going on foot to the center of the village takes about 30 minutes! And at the nearest beach just 15-20 minutes. Turning to the accommodation late in the evening requires a lot of attention to the cars, as the road is dark, uphill and not wide enough. Zacharenia is a great host.

    Eirini2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Natura Stone House is a wonderful place to stay. Great communication and easy check in and check out with Zacharenia. The house is super clean and has everything we needed for our 10 day stay. A 15 minute walk to Sisi harbour, 10 minutes to Boufos and Avlaki beaches. Very peaceful among the olive groves, we loved watching the sunset through the olive trees. If we come back to Sisi, we will stay again. Highly recommended.

    David2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We were delighted with our stay. The apartment is under the owners' house. very comfortable and well equipped. the fridge was stocked with provisions, thanks to Zacharenia for the attention :-) I highly recommend.

    Vincent2018-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had three wonderful days and nights in Zacharenia's apartment! A great place, in which nothing was missing: very clean, lovingly decorated, a good kitchen equipment and a full fridge with fruit, milk and eggs! The communication was great - Zacharenia was great to reach and took great care of us! We felt at home and can recommend the apartment unreservedly! Many Thanks!!!

  • This property is really clean and has everything that you could possibly need whilst on holiday in Sissi, Crete. Zacharenia was exceptionally accommodating and her communication was excellent. She left us food in the refrigerator, fresh bread, milk and fruit juice and her husband picked us grapes from the vine at the front of their property. The property is about a 10 minute walk into the town of Sissi, although we hired quad bikes which was great fun and there's ample parking at the property. The property is situated in an olive grove and the sunsets and views are amazing. I would highly recommend this accommodation and look forward to returning.

  • Zacharenia’s apartment was a perfect introduction to Crete. We stayed here for our first two nights and really enjoyed the gentle pace of Sisi. The apartment was clean and well equipped, and only a short drive from the beach or from Sisi town proper. Zacharenia was an amazing host, who had thought of everything we could possibly need and made preparations for it. From supplying beach towels, to stocking the fridge with things for breakfast, to giving us a bottle of traditional almond cordial, Zacharenia gave us a sense of what Cretan hospitality can be like. Communication was easy and regular. We wholeheartedly recommend this listing to other travelers. Many thanks to Zacharenia and family!

    Milatos Beach, Greece

    Milatos is perfect to have a quiet Greek village experience with few tourists. Villa Bellavista, build in typical Greek architecture, is located across a stone beach directly on the sea, with ocean breezes and the sound of waves. The roof terrace is with amazing view and good for sunbathing. This studio is as close as you can get to the ocean with one queen bed & a bed sofa. It has a large oceanfront balcony for dining or relaxing.
    Unique location, quiet and very close to the sea
    The neighbourhood is mostly local fish taverns, and there are plenty of them, and most of them with outside space close to the sea
  • Catherine was very nice lady, living at one of the apartments in the same building with her dogs. Milatos Beach is a small and peaceful village by the sea, but there are many nice restaurants and a couple of grocery stores within a short walking distance. Most beaches around are pebbles (small stones), but there is a short sandy beach in front of No Name restaurant at the port of Milatos Beach. Sissi, the next town towards west has more night life and shops.

    This windmill is located at the edge of the lively agricultural town Neapolis. It has been sensitively converted into a home. The mechanisms are all intact in the space which is compact and cosy. There are two balconies and a stone staircase to a large garden. There are many popular and also wild beaches within 20 minutes’ drive through beautiful countryside. Crete forms a significant part of the cultural heritage of Greece and so there are many places of interest in the Neapolis Lasithi area.
    The windmill is on two floors totalling 51 sq. metres. There is a 150 sq. metre garden. This mill is small but perfectly functional and comfortably accommodates two people. The two single beds lock together to make a double bed. There is a double sofa bed for other guests in the living area downstairs. Please note the sofa bed needs to be closed during the day to make space. There are places designed for all necessary activities. Cooking, breakfasting and dining, sofa slouching and sofa sleeping, laptop use with a large monitor for wide screen. There is a spiral staircase. Upstairs the double bed can be easily separated to make two single beds or sofas. The two balconies have enough space for dining with stone stairs outside down to the garden and bathroom. The view is of the town streets combined with mountains and hills.
    Neapolis is a small town and a former municipality in Lasithi, eastern Crete. There is a lively Greek community who frequent the countless cafes and tavernas. It is located 12 kilometres (7 miles) west from Agios Nikolaos in the green valley of Mirabello Bay where there are many beaches. The main road does not run through the middle like most towns in Crete. The surrounding area is mountainous and is surrounded by olive trees. Olives and olive oil are a very important part of the local agricultural economy. Neapolis has traditional narrow streets and cobbled roads. The Cathedral of the Virgin Mary (Megali Panagia) is located on the central square.
  • Hello Poppy, we were very happy with our lodging. It is lovingly furnished and there are next to you, as a hostess nice neighbors. Thomas and Arthur

    Thomas2018-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Poppy and the mill were really unique and we felt comfortable all around. Good location to explore this part of the island. The Greek town is not at all touristy but also not spanned.

    Andreas2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in the old windmill. It is a perfect little and quiet place for people who want to explore the beauties of Eastern Crete. (We had a car and I think that's the best option for doing tours from Neapoli. There's plenty of parking space right next to the house.) And Poppy gives the best of all directions for tours and places to go! The place is not luxurious, but very nice, the building is scenic, you can sit on the little balcony overlooking the street, or in the beautiful back-garden. The inside stairs are as narrow as they look on the pictures, but certainly manageable. And everything else one needs is there: a small kitchen, the bathroom with a shower, all tidy and handy. So we had a really wonderful holiday!

    Benno2018-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to explore Crete. Neapolis is a very pleasant Greek town with few tourists, the mill is located near the lively main square. The garden offers wonderful shade at any time of day, the dining area is extremely comfortable and the stone bench a cozy place in the afternoon. Kitchen and shower are a bit small, but authentic and were adequate for our needs. The thick walls of the mill keep warm even on hot days, the lovely balcony is very atmospheric. The house is designed with care, tastefully decorated and exudes tranquility. For two people a very nice and absolutely unique accommodation. Wi-Fi excellent. Poppy welcomed us very warmly and took a lot of time to give us valuable information and special tips, provided us with fruit, drinks and everything you need for the time being. Thank you very much!

    Helmut2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful restored windmill with pleasure is in the pleasant town of Neapolis. The location is perfect for touring the eastern part of the island. Poppy were in the center of Neapoli and took us to the mill. She made us feel at home and was recommended places and routes to explore the surroundings. We have really enjoyed this stay. A very good experience we recommend without hesitation.

    Gloria2016-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely out of the ordinary, this old mill adapted at home puts you immediately at ease, it has every comfort all 'inside! Getting used to the bathroom to 'outside and' been easy, in short, a magical place, thanks to the beautiful garden. Poppy and 'l' host you would always find in Airbnb: gave us a thousand tips on the surroundings of Neapoli. Better than a tour guide !!

    Andrea2016-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • To make it short: a simple unique accommodation! We met with Poppy at the church in Neapoli and then drove together to the mill. Was very close! We had previously been impressed by the pictures, but as we are then really arrived, we were almost speechless. Very beautiful!!! We went in with Poppy and she showed us everything. As someone really has done with a lot of attention to detail from the old mill a home. Great! The pictures give everything back just as it is. A dream! Equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed it very much, in the morning and sit in the beautifully landscaped courtyard at night. It makes great fun to explore the mill ... to swing in the bedroom! :) Had I wondered briefly why there are bathrobes. But the bathroom is only accessible from the outside, so does all sense !! The area around it is wonderful, especially Agios Nikolaos is well worth an evening outing !! We can recommend the wonderful Mill highly enough! Thank Poppy, cordial for your welcome, and all the good tips! Tina & Chris (Cologne, Germany)

    Tina2016-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • The windmill is the perfect place to stay for who is looking for a simple but unique and special accommodation. It is furnished in a good and functional manner, but cosy and stylish at the same time. In the kitchen, Poppy welcomed us with fresh fruits and basics for preparing breakfast and dinner. The bedroom upstairs features a swing (inside!) and a mini-balcony with a beautiful view to the mountains and the valley. From there, outside-stairs take you down into the beautiful garden and to the small but sufficient bathroom. Neapoli is a nice little town, not overcrowded by tourists and a perfect "home-base" for exploring the Lasithi-area of Crete (mountains, beaches, villages...). We were lucky to be around during a local festival (mid-August): on three nights, Greek musicians played concerts in some of the city's smaller squares. The street of the windmill is quiet, neighbours are friendly locals. A car is very recommendable to get around. Poppy is a really hearty person, ready to help and assist with recommendations about the area, food, anything regarding the accommodation and anything else that might come up. If you’re looking for a temporary home in Eastern Crete the windmill is made for you!

  • Had a fantastic 5 days in Sisi. Didn't get the best weather but didnt care. Just wanted to chill and read some books. This was great, authentic, lovely apartment. Right in the middle of the village. A perfect getaway. You can watch theb sun go down from the balcony looking over the sea. Also beautiful views of mountains from the other side of the appartment. Really great place !

    Colin2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a traditional little Greek apartement, no frills you get what’s advertised. It’s perfectly located for the small town, bars, restaurants and beach. A wonderful place to stay in the heart of Sissi. I would definitely recommend if you don’t want a hotel.

    Helen2018-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a little smaller than the images look, but its in a fantastic location and has all you really need to have a great stay in Sissi! It's really close to the taxi station which makes it easier to go and explore the different beaches and towns around Sissi. We really enjoyed going to Malia, but loved that we stayed in Sissi as it is quieter and more scenic. Definitely a place I'd visit again!

    Tom2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a week of wonderful stay in Aspasia apartment. We were welcomed by Aspasia's father. He gave us some tips to discover the area. Very kindly welcome. The apartment is simple but very practical. Beautiful view over the sea and color use is really authentic, liked it.

    Anja2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Aspasia's dwelling was very nice, in spite of the late hour, Aspasia's accomodation fit in perfectly with the description, with a terrace overlooking the harbor, magnificent view of this small port of Sisi, a lovely place. Good location, close to restaurants and shops on foot, and also close to the bathing.We were also able to discover many sites in the area, very beautiful discoveries: Agio Nickolaos, Spinalonga ... up to Vai, etc ... In short, a great stay for all our family.
