Milia Mountain Retreat
An eco-lodge with more than 30 years of history, preserving the identity of the medieval settlement and offering moments of Green Wellness, high environmental sensitivity, and respect for sustainable and community-based traveling.
In the 16th century restored settlement of Milia, rooms preserve the architecture and aesthetic style of the mountainous area of Western Crete. Reconstructed with attention to detail, they hold something of the atmosphere, the remembrance, and imprint of its former inhabitants, bringing them to the present for our guests.
The gastronomical oasis of Milia Restaurant is based on the fresh products of our farms and yards and the culinary culture of the Cretans, enriched with innovative ideas and impeccable service. Renowned for its well-studied approach to quality, Milia Restaurant hosts unique dining moments and turns them into memories.
Eco, outdoor, agri, wellness! Our Green activities can totally rejuvenate you! (only upon request and min. group size)
