Milia Mountain Retreat & Restaurant

Milia ecolodge is located in an environmentally sensitive area of Western Crete, in a region that belongs to the Natura network of protected areas. It is a settlement of restored guesthouses, that preserves the local architecture & essence.

All the guesthouses in Milia are room-houses that pre-existed in the 15th century, carefully refurbished to detail, capturing some of the essence of that time. We call them room-houses because in the past they served the basic needs of the families they hosted, despite their small size, mainly during the summer season. People's needs were simply less back then.

Milia provided them with two basic things. Water and chestnuts, which were both a source of nutrition and a small income to our ancestors that used to live here.
Nowadays, every single house has its unique appeal and decoration. The basic need for water is covered by the springs and electricity is produced by solar panels. All houses have central heating, plus a fireplace or a wood stove for wintertime, en-suite bathrooms, balconies, patios or roof terraces for relaxation.
The rooms are surrounded by chestnut trees, strawberry trees, and a huge variety of flora.

There are four kinds of rooms. The standard double rooms, large double rooms, suites, and family apartments.

The rooms of Milia are house-rooms that already existed in the 15th century and have been restored with attention to detail, maintaining much of the atmosphere of the time. We call them roomhouses because in the past, despite their small size, they housed the basic needs of families who lived there mainly in the summer. Simply the needs of the inhabitants at the time were much more limited.
Milia provided them with the essentials. Water, chestnuts, nuts, gardens.
Today, each house has its own character, its particular decoration.
Water needs are covered by local sources and electricity comes from solar energy.
All rooms are equipped with central heating as well as a fireplace or wood stove for the winter, indoor bathrooms, balconies, courtyards and terraces to relax.
They are surrounded by a wood of chestnut trees, strawberry trees and a wide variety of trees and plants.
We offer 4 types of rooms: Standard Double Rooms, Large Double Rooms, Suites and Family Apartments.

Todas las casas de huéspedes de Milia son casas preexistentes en el siglo XV, cuidadosamente reformadas y restauradas al detail, capturing parte de la esencia de aquella época. Las llamamos casas-habitación porque en el pasado servían para cubrir la necesidades básicas de las familias que acogían, a pesar de su pequeño tamaño, principalmente pendante la temporada de verano. The necessities of the personas will simply be menores en ese entonces; el agua y algo de comida, principalmente las castañas y lo que sacaba la tierra, que eran a la vez fuente de alimentación y pequeña fuente de ingresos para nuestros antepasados ​​​​que vivían aquí.

Hoy en día, cada casa tiene su attractive y decoración únicos. The basic necessity of agua está cubierta locally y la electricity se produce mediante paneles solares. All the houses have central heating, además de chimenea o estufa de leña para el invierno, baños, balconies y patios o azoteas para relajarse.
Las habitaciones están rodeadas de castaños, madroños y una gran variedad de flora.

Hay cuatro tipos de habitaciones. The double standard rooms, the double large rooms, the suites and the familiar apartments. Thank you for contacting with our nosotros for more information.
